Mothro

Mothros are a species of shapeshifting poisonous giant moth indigenous to Dreamland. They are herbivorous and seemingly feed on acorns. Being thought-based, they do not need to actually beat their wings to stay aloft. They are a predatory species and can infest individual's dreams, inducing a coma-like state while their toxic nature causes unending nightmares for the victim.

Their unique evolution has led to the atrophy and eventual loss of their legs in their imago state while their antennae have since fused into a long horn protruding from the forehead. They possibly emit their poison from either this horn or their twin wing tails, though this is only speculative.

They are considered to be of the wind element.

Background historyEdit

A Mothro once infested the dreams of Dirt-Eating Clan member Mogu, leading his friends to enter Dreamland in order to save him from his then-unknown malady. The party followed a being that taunted them along the way and upon cornering it it revealed itself to be a Mothro. Upon killing the creature the party woke up, alongside Mogu.

AppearancesEdit

  • Breath of Fire (First appearance)

TriviaEdit

  • The creature appears as a boss in its only known appearance.
  • Unlike most enemy sprites in Breath of Fire, Mothro doesn't have typical moving animations.
  • Its English name "Mothro" may be a reference to the Toho kaiju Mothra.
