Somebody forgot to tell Square that the Remora is a sucking fish that feeds on tidbits left behind by sharks and other sea creatures, not coral.

Sentient coral that appear as randomly encountered monsters in Squaresoft's 1990 Nintendo Famicom Final Fantasy III video game. Remoras have 860 hit points (HP), are weak against the element of Thunder, and are worth $1,800 and 950 experience points, each, when slain. They can only be found in the depths of Lake Dol, where the mighty Leviathan resides. The monsters Remora and Charybdis share the same game sprite, but have different color schemes and attributes.

Newsprint, tissue paper, white glue, acrylic paint, and sand.

6.9 cm/2.7 in. x 9.0 cm/3.5 in. (highest point x widest point)
