    "We don't make mistakes here, we just have happy accidents. We want happy,
    happy paintings. If you want sad things, watch the news. Everything is
    possible here. This is your little universe." - Bob Ross (1942-1995)

    - Version 1.1 Advance (6/20/2007)
          Translated the original document and added all creatures added in the
          Advance version. The only other difference is the order of enemies
          listed in section 5.0; while keeping the ancient order of the SNES,
          with the GBA's bestiary order the old one is clearly the less practical.
    
    - Version 1.1  (1/8/2006)
          Fixed its/it's errors and some other ones. Thankx go to Galbalan for
          pointing them out!

    **********************************
    2.0 Introduction
    **********************************
    
    Nobody likes Sketch. And that's only logical. 
    
    See, if Blitz is the popular jock all shallow people love, if Bushido is the
    bitch without any real qualities who is adored for her looks and if Rage is the
    scrawny kid with glasses few people like to talk to who'll later make more
    money that the rest of class '96 combined, Sketch is the poor kid who, besides
    being lactose-intolerant, suffering from asthma AND having the worst case of
    acne known to Western science, lacks any kind of charm, quality or potential. 
    Even if you do put on a nose peg - penetrating body odour - and get to talk to
    him, you'll notice that under all the ugly, you've found a prime example of
    a generally boring person who sometimes likes to kill caterpillars and sniff
    his sister's underwear.
    
    That, my friends, is Sketch. 
    
    This doesn't make the character of Relm useless; she has great equipment, a
    natural ability to reach 128 % Magic Evasion without all too much fuss and/or 
    Merit Award, the game's highest starting Magic and is, as annual polls tell us, 
    the game's sexiest person by far. 
    
    But still, Sketch. It's not like Shock or anything, it's got its own damage
    formula and even its own two bytes on *every* monster to tell us what attacks
    can be produced by Sketch. Clearly at least some amount of effort was put into
    Sketch, that much is obvious. But hey, that doesn't say anything; if you're
    still with me on the whole kid-metaphor thing, his parents must have hugged
    eachother in that special way at least once for it to appear, and judging from
    the look of it, also the scorn of society for breaking the dogma on brother/
    sister fornication. 
    
    Andy Warhol (1928-1987) said everybody should have their 15 minutes of fame. And
    thus Sketch too should pass the revue; I see before me the Task of Hercules to
    bring some kind of justification for the ability. While it's an entirely
    other debate, most people will want to agree with me when I say that Control
    isn't exactly hot enough to justify the loss of a Relic slot, so you'll probably
    be keeping Sketch around. Let's see what Sketch can do for us. 
    
    Technological and/or systematical bashing of Sketch:
    
    Square employee # 1: My, what a pleasant day. Comrade, come ye over here and
    listen! While drinking my scotch, enjoying the pleasures of a Cuban cigar
    and having delightful social intercourse with my wife and children, I stumbled
    upon an idea. I perceive it to be the idea to end all ideas.
    
    Square employee # 2: What?
    
    Square employee # 1: I say, we shall create a monster within this game that we
    are creating, and we will make it a lightning monster! It will be a demon of
    electricity, an incubus of sparks, a behemoth of thunder! Oh, the players will
    appreciate the subtle irony of defeating a symbolic representation of
    electricity on this 'gaming console' - in the parlance on our time - which
    itself is powered by electricity. 
    
    Square employee # 2: I really think you should drink less Black Russians
    before lunch.
    
    Thus, after jokingly punching Square employee # 2 in the groin, face and stomach
    until he stops moving, the protagonist of our tale goes off to create this
    monster of lightning. Among other lightning-related touches to the beast,
    he makes the monster *absorb* lightning, as that's what lightning monsters
    tend to do. Also, from the Sketch attacks, he selects two Lightning-elemental
    attacks, as that's what animated paintings from lightning monsters tend to do.
    
    Behold, Belmodar - at the time known only as 'Rhinotaur', one of the many
    factual rebutals to the statement 'Sketch was a positive factor in this game'. 
    
    And that's the basic lay-out of 50 % of Sketch its problem. Monsters often have
    a theme. The theme can be an element or a status effect. Almost always, the
    monsters are immune to what they do themselves. Belmodar does and absorbs 
    Megavolt. Lich does and absorbs Fira. Nightwalker does and absorbs Drain. 
    Mandrake does and resists !Stonetouch. Etcetera. 
    
    The other 50 % of Sketch its problem is the damage formula. Here's how opponents
    and character are laid out in this game:
    
    Characters:	High stats	Low HP		Strong attacks
    Monsters:	Low stats	High HP		Mediocre attacks
    
    Sketch takes the stats of the monsters you're Sketching, and more often than not
    the attacks of it. While not Sketching, the Sketch user will have the normal
    character's amount of HP. Basically, a Sketcher combines the worst attributes of
    both sides into a potpourri of failure.

    MT: Multi-target. Targets all members of one side.
    
    ST: Single-target. Targets a single target.
    
    NMG: Natural Magic Game. Magic taught by Espers and equipment is prohibited in
         this challenge.
    
    !Special: A lot of attacks have an exclamation mark in front of them. This is
              to show that the attack concerned is a Special attack, a physical
              attack that's based off of the Battle attack. 
    
    II: To differate between the two sets of Dragons (the ones scattered around
    the World of Ruin and the ones located in the Dragon's Den), the latter have
    been given the suffix 'II'.
    
    **********************************
    4.0 How Sketch works
    **********************************
    
    4.1.1     Sketch Hit Rate
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Sketch chance:
    
    If (Sketcher's level * 256) / Target's level > [0..255] then
    you successfully sketch, otherwise you miss.
    
    What does this mean? The [0..255] part is just factored in for the random part
    of the formula. To simplify it, you can keep in the back of your head that
    
    (Sketcher's level)/(Sketchee's level) = Probability Sketch will work
    
    That's a tiny margin off, but accurate enough. Conclusions:
    
    - Whenever the Sketcher's level is equal to or higher than the Sketchee, Sketch
      will always work. 
    - If the Sketchee's level is double the Sketcher's level, the probability of
      Sketch working is 50.2 %.
    - If the Sketchee's level is 1.5 the Sketcher's level, the probability of Sketch
      working is 66.66 %.
    - If the Sketchee's level is 25 and the Sketcher's level is 5, the probability
      of Sketch is 20 % (this is the scenario of Relm VS Ultros #3 in an LLG).
    
    
    4.1.2     The Beret
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    The Beret, a piece of Headgear, can boost the chance of Sketch working. All in
    all it's a rather crummy piece of Headgear you don't want to have around, even
    when you first find it as the Mystery Veil is better than it. Here are the
    Beret's stats:
    
    Defense: 21	Magic Defense: 21	Magic + 3
    Can be equipped by Relm		
    Is compatible with the Merit Award
    
    For trivia info, here's how Mystery Veil is better:
    Defense: 24	Magic Defense: 25	Magic + 3	Magic Evasion + 10 %
    Can be equipped by Terra, Celes, Relm
    Is not compatible with the Merit Award
    
    You can find the Beret for the first time on the Floating Continent, in the
    blue orb to the northeast of the bizarre gateway that takes you to the Save
    Point. Later, you can buy the Beret in WoR Tzen for 3500 Gil. 
    
    4.1.3     Sketch Hit Rate with a Beret
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    If you are equipped with a Beret, then the chance to sketch is:
    
    If (Sketcher's level * 256) / (Target's level * 170 / 256) > [0..255] then
    you successfully sketch, otherwise you miss.
    
    This can be simplified with a slight deviation to
    
    (Sketcher's level)/(2/3 * Sketchee's level)
    
    Conclusions with the Beret equipped:
    
    - Whenever the Sketcher's level is equal to or higher than 1.5 * the level of
      the Sketchee, Sketch will always work. 
    - If the Sketchee's level is double the Sketcher's level, the probability of
      Sketch working is 75 %.
    
    
    4.2.1     Sketch damage formula
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    It's very simple. 
    
    Sketch uses the level of the Sketcher, and the Magic, Strength and Attack or
    the Sketchee. Allow that to sink in for a moment, and try not to cry over the
    horror.
    
    Cyan is the character's with the lowest Magic: 25. The normal monster's Magic 
    tends to be 10. The monsters whose Magic even starts to approach that of a 
    characters are the following:
    
    Brachiosaur	25
    Siegfried	25
    Slagworm	22
    Cactuar		50
    Magic Urn	35
    Blade Dancer	30
    Death Warden	55
    Desert Hare	30
    Metal Hitman	25
    Guardian	25
    L.30 Magic	20
    L.20 Magic	21
    L.10 Magic	22
    Long Arm*	30
    Magic Master	25
    Abaddon		30	
    Shield Dragon	22	
    Armodullahan	22	
    Crystal Dragon	26	
    Plague		20
    Neslug (both)	20
    Earth Eater	30
    Holy Dragon II	22
    Kaiser Dragon	22	
    Omega Weapon	30
    
    *  This monster cannot be Sketched
    
    The Relics Relm carries to boost damage (Gigas Glove, Earring, Hero's Ring)
    are NOT ignored. 
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    4.2.2     Miscellaneous notes
    
    - The Weapon Relm is holding while executing Attack or Special attack through
      Sketch is *entirely* ignored. This ranges from ignoring Back Row
      compatibility, Dice effects, X-type instant-death, random spells, everything.
    
    - The different parts in the final battle cannot be Sketched.
    
    - Silenced Sketchers cannot execute Sketch attacks that would normally cost any
      MP
    
    - Sketch will never work on party members
    
    - Sketch will never work on monsters with the Invisible status

    **********************************
    6.0 When to use Sketch
    **********************************
    
    First off: NO SKETCH ATTEMPT IS EVER GOOD ENOUGH TO WARRANT SUICIDE.
    
    That's why the following four monsters should never be Sketched:
    Black List:
    
    Bomb		25 % Self-Destruct
    Gamma		75 % Self-Destruct
    Balloon		75 % Self-Destruct
    Mousse		75 % Transfusion
    
    Second off: What's a good moment to use Sketch? A high-leveled Relm with a
    Merit Award, Master's Scroll and the Valiant Knife knows no good moments to
    use Sketch.
    
    Relm who is continuously up-to-date with all Magic available has very little
    moments where Sketch is superior to her Magic command. 
    
    I've listed the better moments to use Sketch with a normal four-headed party
    in the back of my head where Relm knows no Magic but is equipped with the
    best weapon at the time. 
    
    Here's the recommendations by location:
    
    You'll find yourself being able to use Sketch in-battle as soon as you get
    Relm, while fighting Ultros. The game gently pushes you to use Sketch against
    Ultros. While the restulting Tentacle attack is hardly worth it, Ultros AI
    script makes Sketch end the battle.
    
    Ultros 		 Tentacle	 Tentacle
    Bonnacon	 Attack		!Digestive Fluid	Inflicts Sap
    Land Grillon	 Attack		!Wing Snap		Inflicts Berserk
    Adamankary	 Blaster	!Claw			Battle * 1.5
    Mandrake	 Leech		!Stonetouch		Inflicts Petrify
    Venobennu	 Poison		!Featherdust		Inflicts Poison
    
    In the cave itself, Sketch is next to useless. The only two enemies worth
    sketching are Adamankary when it is accompanied by two Bonnacon (Blaster kills
    them) or versus Mandrake. 25 % !Stonetouch works against Land Grillon and 75 % 
    Leech can restore Relm's health if it's low. On a normal level (20-25) Leech
    should absorb about 300 HP. 
    
    Briareus	 Absolute Zero	!Claw			Battle * 1.5
    Devourer	 Attack		!Shell Slam		Battle * 1.5
    Chimera		 Aqua Breath	!Romp			Battle * 2
    
    Outside of the cave, on the Overworld Map, both Briareus's 75 % Absolute Zero
    and Chimera's 75 % Aqua Breath deal 700 damage (350 when MT) on a normal level. 
    
    When the Blackjack is recovered and Relm is on it, Sketch can be used to access
    a lot of neat cookies that are hardly ever very useful, but always interesting.
    
    If you want to see the Thundaga spell, head to the Veldt and Sketch a Zombie
    Dragon. If you want to see the Blizzaga spell, head to the Veldt and Sketch a 
    Belzecue. You can teach Strago the Roulette Lore earlier by Sketching an Onion 
    Knight for its 75 % Roulette attack.
    
    Sky Armor	 Magitek Laser	!Reverse Thruster	Inflicts Silence
    Spitfire	 Magitek Laser	!Propeller		Battle * 1.5
    Typhon		 Attack		!Imp Oil		Inflicts Imp
    Ultros 4	 Attack		!Ink
    Air Force	 Attack 	!Hit			Battle * 1.5
    Laser Gun	 Attack 	!Hit			Battle * 1.5
    Missile Bay	 Attack 	!Hit			Battle * 1.5
    Bit		 Attack 	!Hit			Battle * 1.5
    
    Refrain from using Sketch during the entire AIF sequence, Ultros/Typhon battle
    and struggle against Air Force, as nothing will be worth the turn. 
    
    Brainpan	 1000 Needles	!Smirk			Inflicts Stop
    Misfit		 Lifeshaver	!Enmity			Inflicts Darkness
    Apocrypha	 Lv. 3 Confuse	!Silencing Touch	Inflicts Silence
    Dragon		 Revenge Blast	!Tail			Battle * 5
    Platinum Dragon	 Cyclonic	!Wing			Battle * 2
    Behemoth	 Meteor		!Beatdown		Battle * 3
    Ninja		 Water Scroll	 Flame Scroll
    Naude		 Attack		!Hit			Battle * 1.5
    Gigantos	 Attack		!Throat Jab
    Ultima Weapon	 Attack		!Full Power
    Nelapa		 Attack 	!Hit			Battle * 1.5
    
    On the FC, Brainpan yields 75 % 1000 Needles and 25 % !Smirk, both pleasant 
    enough to warrant usage. Platinum Dragon has a 75 % Cyclonic attack you'll
    absolutely want to take advantage of. Dragon's 75 % Revenge Blast might be
    nice if Relm is Near Fatal, but you'll want to stick to healing her ASAP in
    that situation rather than use Revenge Blast. While Behemoth uses Meteor and
    Ninja uses Water Scroll, neither will be even remotely impressive so forget
    about it. Gigantos, Ultima Weapon, Naude and Nelapa are all horrid models
    for Sketch attempts.
    
    Assuming we've gone straight to Relm in the WoR, skipping all other little
    side-quests:
    
    Brachiosaur	 Traveler	!Spin			Battle * 6
    Tyrannosaur	 Aero		!Bite			Battle * 7
    Tumbleweed	 Lifeshaver	!Blinder		Inflicts Darkness
    Leap Frog	 Sticky Goo	!Tongue			Inflicts Sap
    Slagworm	 Sandstorm	!Crush			Battle * 5
    Cactuar		 1000 Needles	!Mindprick		Inflicts Berserk
    Crawler		 Traveler	!Feeler			Inflicts Poison
    Sprinter	 Aero		!Osmose Beak		Drains MP
    Basilisk	 Break		!Stone Gaze		Inflicts Petrify
    Lycaon		 Blaster	!Scratch		Battle * 1.5
    Greater Mantis	 Wind Slash	!Mind Reaper		Drains MP
    Vasegiatta	 Cyclonic	!Talon Grab		Battle * 2
    Gloomwind	 Net		!Rock			Inflicts Petrify
    Purusa		 Attack		!Bear Hug		Battle * 3
    Deathgaze	 Attack		!Venom Claw		Inflicts Poison
    
    On the Overworld Map, a lot of critters are there for you to Sketch.
    Brachiosaur's Sketch attacks aren't too bad (75 % Traveler, 25 % !Spin), but
    Brachiosaur is too dangerous to toy around with, and even if you have Gogo
    Control him while Sketching there's a 25 % chance Relm snaps him out of it. 
    Tumbleweed's 75 % Lifeshaver can be great to absorb some HP if you could use
    some. Slagworm's 75 % Sandstorm comes from a respectable 22 Magic and packs
    quite a punch while its 25 % !Crush hurts a lot as well. Cactuar's 75 % 1000
    Needles kills it, although its 25 % !Mind Prick will miss. Lycaon's 75 %
    Blaster kills Sprinters, while Sprinter's 75 % Aero kills Lycae. That's about
    it. 
    
    Zokka		 Net		!Rock			Inflicts Petrify
    Nightwalker	 Drain		 Poison
    Scorpion	 Attack		!Lethal Sting		Inflicts Countdown
    
    Nothing in the Collapsing House in Tzen is worth Sketching.
    
    Humbaba 2	 Attack 	!Solar Plexus		Battle * 1.5
    Humbaba 3	 Attack 	!Solar Plexus		Battle * 1.5
    Humbaba 4	 Attack 	!Solar Plexus		Battle * 1.5
    
    Humbaba isn't worth Sketching.
    
    Mugbear		 Fira		!Neck Scratch		Battle * 1.5
    Devil Fist	 W. o' the Wisp !Switchblade		Battle * 1.5
    Luridan		 Rock Slide	!Ram			Battle * 2
    Punisher	 Attack		 Attack
    Glasya Labolas	!Uppercut	!Uppercut		Battle * 5
    
    In Mt. Zozo, Mugbear's 75 % Fira delivers about 500 damage on a normal level
    (30) and since Mugbear itself is weak against the attack and it'll do 1000 to
    him, it's worth a shot. Luridan's 75 % Rock Slide is decent enough as well.
    If Relm is in the Front Row, Glasya Labolas' 100 % !Uppercut will do over 1000
    damage, but given his high Evasion it's not very likely to land.
    
    Storm Dragon	 Aero 		 White Wind
    
    Storm Dragon is a poor choice for Sketching under normal circumstances, as its
    75 % Aero will heal it. If you used the Debilitator though, Aero packs quite
    a punch against Storm Dragon, and that 25 % White Wind can't hurt. 
    
    Gorgimera	 Avalanche	 El Niņo
    Twinscythe	 Metal Cutter	!Drainsickle		Drains HP
    Death Warden	!Dead End	!Dead End		Inflicts Death
    Behemoth King	 Attack		!Devil Claw
    Behemoth King	 Firaga		!Sleeping Gas		Inflicts Sleep
    
    In the Cave in the Veldt, Twinscythe's 75 % Metal Cutter is decent enough (1100 
    on a single target around level 33), although 25 % !Drainsickle will dissapoint.
    Gorgimera, while sporting two nice spells (Avalanche and El Niņo), is a
    horrible Sketch target. 
    
    Death Warden yields a 100 % !Dead End, which will kill it instantly. A very good
    idea, and one of the few moments Sketch really shines. 
    
    You'll want to refrain from Sketching versus the first Behemoth King. The second
    one has a 75 % Firaga spell. Its performance is bad, especially considering
    Relm can smack him with a Gravity and/or Holy Rod, but about 2000 damage around
    level 35 isn't that bad, especially for Sketch.
    
    Samurai		 Death		 Flare
    Al Jabr		 Thundaga	!Spinning Umbrella	Inflicts Sleep
    Suriander	 Aqua Breath	!Yawn			Inflicts Sleep
    Weredragon	 Death		!Venom Claw		Inflicts Poison
    Alluring Rider	 Doom		!Sap Seed		Inflicts Sap
    Pandora		 Revenge Blast	!Hypno Gas		Inflicts Sleep
    Parasite	 Gigavolt	!Mind Stop		Inflicts Stop
    Coco		 Overture	!Slap			Inflicts Silence
    Schmidt		 Atomic Rays	!Anchor			Inflicts Sap
    Pluto Armor	 Magitek Laser  !Ram			Battle * 2
    Io		 Plasma		!Crush			Battle * 3
    Curlax		 Attack 	!Hit			Battle * 1.5
    Laragorn	 Attack 	!Hit			Battle * 1.5
    Moebius		 Attack 	!Hit			Battle * 1.5
    Wrexsoul	 Attack 	!Doom Strike		Inflicts Countdown
    Soul Saver 	 Attack 	!Magic Drain		Drains MP
    
    In Cyan's Soul, the psychedelic background puts a stop to any kind of
    realistic art; no monster is worth sketching other than Weredragon, whose 75 %
    Death spell should take either the Weredragon or a Parasite out. In the train,
    Al Jabr's 75 % Thundaga and Samurai's 25 % Flare are not strong enough to 
    make use of them, and Samurai's 75 % Death never works as everything Samurai
    travels with, including Samurai itself, is protected from ID attacks. 
    
    While you can't Sketch Schmidt, Pluto Armor and Io as you're piloting MagiTek
    armor, you can meet them on the Veldt. Regardless, Sketching them isn't a very
    brilliant idea. Io's 75 % Plasma is the best of the bunch, and not very good.
    
    Test Rider	 Flash Rain	!Golden Lance		Battle * 3
    Wizard		 Gravity 	 Rasp
    Lukhavi		 Attack		!Claw Swipe		Battle * 1.5
    Magna Roader (y) Attack		!Wheel			Battle * 1.5
    Magna Roader (b) Attack		!Slam			Battle * 2
    Psychos		 Lifeshaver	!Mindshock		Drains MP
    Garm		 Revenge Blast	!Bodyslam		Battle * 1.5
    Valigarmanda	 Attack		!Hit
    Ice Dragon	 Blizzaga	 Firaga
    
    In WoR Narshe are no competent Sketchee's available. Nor inside the caves of the
    snowy town. 
    
    Ice Dragon has a 75 % Blizzaga and a 25 % Firaga. If you manage to change Ice
    Dragon's absorption into a weakness with the Debilitator you've got a constant
    2000 damage around level 38. It beats whacking it with the Flame Rod, but is
    less effective than a Fira spell. 
    
    Tonberry	 Break		!Knife			Battle * 8
    Onion Dasher	 Traveler	!Dash			Inflicts Haste
    Anemone		 Gigavolt	 Imp
    Illuyankas	 Gigavolt	 Imp
    Knotty		 Stone		 Imp
    Tzakmaquil	 Cyclonic	 Imp			
    Tonberries	 Attack		 Attack
    Yeti		 Attack		!Tackle
    
    In Umaro's Cave the two monsters who make good Sketchee's are Tzakmaquil (75 %
    Cyclonic) and Onion Dasher (Traveler).
    
    Samurai		 Death		 Flare
    Suriander	 Aqua Breath	!Yawn			Inflicts Sleep
    Coco		 Overture	!Slap			Inflicts Silence
    Armored Weapon	 Mega Berserk	!Metal Arm		Battle * 2
    Lunatys		 Meteor		!Electrode		Battle * 3
    Figaro Lizard	 Dischord	!Venom			Inflicts Poison
    Devil		 Thundaga	 Firaga
    Enuo		 Tsunami	!Slime			Inflicts Slow
    Master Tonberry	 Attack		!Knife
    Samurai Soul	 Attack		!Assassin Blade		Inflicts Death
    Blue Dragon	 Blizzaga	 Blaster
    
    In and around the Ancient Castle, the high Magic Defense of everything there
    makes sure Sketch attacks are received with a laugh. Only Figaro Lizard has a
    75 % Dischord, which can't hurt and doesn't bounce off the Reflect barrier.
    Samurai Soul has a 25 % !Assassin Blade, which kills Samurai Soul. Even with 
    Confuse set, it's a decent shot at killing one of the most dangerous enemies in 
    the game. 
    
    Zone Eater	 Attack		!Hit			Battle * 1.5
    Covert		 Wind Slash	!Disappear		Inflicts Invisible
    Kamui		 Meteor		 Attack
    Wartpuck	 Attack		!Yawn			Inflicts Sleep
    Shambling Corpse Thundaga	 Break
    Amduscias	 Slowga		!Booty Shake		Inflicts Confuse
    Baalzephon	 Tornado	!Frenzy			Inflicts Berserk
    
    In the Zone Eater cave, Amduscias has a 75 % Slowga that's a free way of
    slowing the opponent's down. Other enemies wield either Tornado (Baalzephon) or
    offensive spells (Covert's 75 % Wind Slash and Shambling Corpse's 75 % Thundaga)
    which at this stage of the game isn't acceptable any more. 
    
    Ouroboros	 Quake		 Bio
    Face		 1000 Needles	!Smirk			Inflicts Stop
    Zeveak		 Flash Rain	!Whirling Umbrella	Inflicts Confuse
    Seaflower	 Attack		!Tentacle		Inflicts Poison
    Galypdes	 Cyclonic	!Flap			Battle * 5
    Necromancer	 Death		 Banish
    Clymenus	 Fira		 Fire
    Chaos Dragon	 Disaster	!Incinerate		Inflicts Death
    Red Dragon	 Firaga		 Lv. ? Holy
    
    In Phoenix Cave, several monsters get nice results. Chaos Dragon's 75 % Disaster
    is nice, as is its 25 % !Incinerate. Ouroboros' Quake at least kills Ouroboros
    itself and deals decent damage to the other opponents, but is only acceptable
    when your party is Floating or covered in Gaia Gear. Finally, Necromancer's 
    25 % Banish is nice but is too rare to shoot for.
    
    Warlock		 Holy		!Magic Drain		Drains MP
    Mahadeva	 Death		!Rib			Battle * 2
    Sorath		 Shamshir	!Choke			Battle * 1.5
    Medusa Chicken	 Quake		!Lick			Inflicts Petrify
    Creature	 Bio		!Stench			Inflicts Confuse
    Moonform	 Flash Rain	 Acid Rain
    Aspidochelon	 Landslide	!Rage			Battle * 1.5
    Hidon		 Attack 	!Hit			Battle * 1.5
    Erebus		 Attack 	!Poison Claw		Inflicts Poison
    Erebus		 Attack 	!Confuse Claw		Inflicts Confuse
    Erebus		 Attack 	!Zombie Claw		Inflicts Zombie
    Erebus		 Attack 	!Mega Claw		Battle * 4
    
    In Hidon's Cave, all monsters yield damaging attacks which simply aren't
    effective enough to defend Sketch for. 
    
    Holy Dragon	 Holy		 Flare
    Magic Urn	 Curaga		 Esuna
    
    You can't Sketch these critters on the Fanatic's Tower, but you can meet them
    on the Veldt. If you Debilitate Holy Dragon into a weakness for Holy, Sketching
    still isn't a good idea. Sketching Magic Urn is a grand idea though, as a 75 %
    Curaga coming from a 'stellar' 35 Magic Power should do you a lot of good. 
    
    Earth Dragon	 Thundaga	 Magnitude 8
    
    Earth Dragon's 75 % Thundaga is surprisingly effective for a Sketch attack, but 
    its 25 % Magnitude8 will always miss due to its inherent Float status. 
    
    Yojimbo		 Wind Slash	!Eye for an Eye		Inflicts Death
    Dark Force	 Tsunami	 Lv. 5 Death
    Muud Suud	 Landslide	!Bodyslam		Battle * 3
    Fiend Dragon	 Northern Cross  Heartless Angel
    Mover		 Disaster	 Attack
    Cherry		 Holy		 Flare
    Vector Lythos	 White Wind	!Bite			Battle * 1.5
    Primeval Dragon	 Firaga		!Heave			Battle * 5
    Landworm	 Magnitude 8	!Constrict		Battle * 2
    Gamma		 Self-Destruct	!Gamma Rays		Inflicts Countdown
    Great Malboro	 Bad Breath	 Poison
    Outsider	 Attack		!Dispatch		Inflicts Death
    Demon Knight	 Shockwave	!Cursed Gaze		Inflicts Sap
    Duel Armor	 Gigavolt	!Megashock		Battle * 3
    Great Behemoth	 Meteor		!Haymaker		Battle * 4
    Vector Chimera	 Aqua Breath	 Gigavolt
    Fortis		 Metal Cutter	!Double Arm		Battle * 1.5
    Junk		 Thundaga	!Parallout		Inflicts Invisible
    InnoSent	 Attack		 Lv. ? Holy
    Deadalus	 Quake		!Venom Tusk		Inflicts Poison
    Ahriman		 Doom		 Roulette
    Death Machine	 Gigavolt	 Death

    In Kefka's Tower, there are a few monsters that nice results: Great Malboro has
    a 75 % Bad Breath, Fiend Dragon has a 75 % Northern Cross and a 25 % Heartless
    Angel, Yojimbo has a 25 % !Eye for an Eye, although its 75 % Wind Slash is 
    useless, Vector Lythos has a great 75 % White Wind, Dark Force has a 25 %
    Lv. 5 Death which kills all Dark Force enemies, but its 75 % Tsunami is horrid
    and Outsider has a 25 % !Dispatch while its 75 % Battle is a wasted turn.
    
    Guardian's 75 % Mighty Guard might prove a nice feature in a party that lacks 
    Lore casters who know Mighty Guard themselves. Finally, Kefka makes a decent 
    Sketch; Ultima is fairly poor, but !Havoc Wing is quite strong.

    Sadly, it seems the Advance team has learned little from past mistakes. They've
    installed a simple physical Attack in almost every 75 % slot. It's their thing.
    However, some nice Sketch results can still be found, despite their best
    efforts. Zurvan's 25 % Gravity will probably deal 9999 damage, but given the
    demonic thing is vulnerable to ID a Death spell will help you better. Death
    Rider's Hyperdrive is massively powerful, though its Undead nature will open
    it up for a Raise spell, making Sketching futile. Flan Princess is vulnerable
    to Sleep, and the 25 % Lullaby is your only means of MT Sleep. Earth Eater's
    25 % !Megaton Punch can kill it instantly. All other attacks are simply
    damaging attacks not quite up to the task with the possible exception of Kaiser
    Dragon's 25 % massive Hyperdrive; though when facing Kaiser Dragon you'll
    probably want to rely on mass damage without a random factor involved. 
    
    Glutturn (Red)	 Attack		 Firaga
    Glutturn (Blue)	 Attack		 Blizzaga
    Glutturn (Green) Attack		 Aero
    Glutturn (Yellow)Attack		 Thundaga
    
    It's a bad idea to Sketch Glutturn regardless of their color and refreshment
    demand; the resulting attacks are too weak to provoke the Glutturn for, and the
    yellow, X-Ether guzzling Glutturn even absorbs the 25 % Thundaga attack. 
    
    **********************************
    7.0 Conclusion
    **********************************
    
    Is Sketch a good command?
    
    No, Sketch isn't a good command. Relm would have been better off with Control,
    Blitz, Tools, Throw or even Bushido. But Sketch was never meant to be Relm's
    primary source of damage; it's a side-command, like Terra's Trance and Celes'
    Runic skill. With this in mind, Sketch seems different. It shouldn't be compared
    to Sabin's Blitz techniques or Edgar's Tools. Nobody ever uses Morph or Runic
    in a normal battle either; Sketch is a great command to use in a few select
    battles in a normal game. In my opinion, even with Relm having access to good
    spells, the following battles are in my opinion the battles to use Sketch in:
    
    - On the Veldt, to learn Roulette earlier
    - Ultros # 3, for guaranteed end of the battle
    - Death Warden, for guaranteed one-hit KO
    - Fiend Dragon, for 75 % Northern Cross and 25 % Heartless Angel
    - Platinum Dragon, for 75 % Cyclonic
    - Samurai Soul, for 25 % chance at !Assassin blade
    - Chaos Dragon, for 75 % Disaster and 25 % !Incinerate
    - Vector Lythos, for 75 % White Wind
    - Guardian, for a one-time 75 % Mighty Guard
    - Earth Eater, for a 25 % shot at killing it instantly
