That's a Mini-Yux. A creature made to protect a Yux, it can split into two. Max HP is 1, Attack is 0, and Defense is 0. These twerps are the reason you sometimes can't do any damage to the main Yux. They're a pain, but you HAVE to beat them before the Yux. Flurrie's pretty effective…


The Mini-Yux are creations of the X-Naut army, serving as protective-assistants to the Yux in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. There can be up to two surrounding a Yux, and they protect it by creating green-colored shield around the Yux. They are the weakest enemy in the game both defensively and offensively, but their presence makes their parent Yux invincible, making them an important target.

Mini-Yux mainly appear alongside regular Yux in the Great Tree during Chapter 2. They are also found in the X-Naut Fortress.

The Grodus X, helper creatures spawned by Sir Grodus, resemble Mini-Yux in size and function. Grodus X are tougher and offensively active, but provide less defensive benefit to their creator.
