The Nocturne Hastatus can only be encountered on Angel Island. However, a single Nocturne Hastatus can also be fought on the airship on the way to Angel Island, and four can be fought during a side mission in Voxai Colony Beta.
In combat, the Nocturne Hastatus can perform two actions per round. Their basic attack is forming a pair of blue spears of energy, similar to the Chaos Spear, and throwing them at the opponent, which can deal two hits per use. Their POW moves are Evade and Leech Blade (ドレインブレード), which can inflict Leech.
