Minions are creatures which serve as the main weapon of Levant in progressing in the game. They are referred to as many names, many of which which are considered by the more "enlightened" characters in the game, such as Garai, Phio and Mahbu. The names include Beasts, Agents of Elrihm ...
There are 175 different legitimately obtainable minions in Jade Cocoon: Story Of The Tamamayu. However, only 171 of these are obtainable in each save. This is due to the fact that Arpatron and Vatolka cannot be legitimately obtained in the same save, as only one of them can appear in Koris' capture tutorial. Arpatron and Vatolka (all of it's elemental relatives) share the same in-game Minion List place, but have different IDs, hence why there are 175 total legitimately obtainable minions.
As enemies, minions appear solely in the various Forests of the game. Levant can use them in battle by first capturing them with the power of his flute and trapping them in an empty cocoon. They also need to be purified by Mahbu, after which they become firefly cocoons. The player can then summon them in battle using the power of their flute. Higher level minions are harder to catch, but it becomes easier as Levant's capture level increases by successfully capturing minions.
Pure minions (that being minions captured in the forest) can contain 1 of 4 different elemental properties; Fire, Water, Air/Wind or Earth, which loosely determines how efficient they are at using that particular elements various moves. Minions can also be non-elemental, though this can only be legitimately seen with various enemy minions. Humans which are encountered in-game in battle are considered non-elemental, though that doesn't mean that they can't use elemental attacks (special and magical) effectively. Pure minions that are merged by Mahbu or Ra are called hybrid minions. After merging, the various stats and traits of those minions are combined and averaged. This can also lead to a multi-elemental minion, that being a minions with 2 or more elements, even opposing ones, such as Fire and Water. However, there are downfalls to this, mainly that the power of elemental moves will be lower, but the minions may better resist certain elements, as damage taken isn't measured by a minion's elemental ratio.
