The Ripper is a quick, skunk-like monster that stands upright with a sharp, powerful look. Rippers have sharp sickles on their arms that they use in battle, and they are known to have keen accuracy and high speed. They are able to control wind and ice and combine them to create strong attacks like their "Mute Cutter" and "Ice Pillar" techniques. They can jump very high and use their tails to slash opponents, distracting them until their claws can do damage. It is interesting that the Ripper species bears the same color scheme as Moo, and yet so far no proof has been offered that the two are genetically linked.

There was a previous version of the Naga/Pixie named Ripper, but that monster's name was changed and given to this monster when it was released.

Etymology Edit

Rippers are based on the legends of the kamaitachi, weasels that could ride on the wind and slice the ankles of unsuspecting victims.
