The Roc and Raptor are enemies that are randomly battled in Golden Sun: The Lost Age. These monsters, resembling large winged birds standing on the ground, are palette swaps of each other that have differing levels of power and defense and are fought in different locations in the game.

In Golden Sun: The Lost Age[edit]

Roc[edit]

Roc.png

A Roc (ロックちょう Chief Roc) is a level 24 variant with an orange head and crest and a purple beak. In The Lost Age, Rocs are fought throughout both the exterior and interior portions of Aqua Rock.

While the Roc only has moderate agility among the monsters it is fought alongside, in the exterior portion of Aqua Rock it has the best offenses and durability by quite fair margins. It has rather good EXP and coin rewards as well. Inside Aqua Rock, however, it is outperformed in these areas by the Sea Dragon.

A Roc's statistics are as follows:

A Raptor (プレイバード Prey Bird) is a level 35 variant with a violet head and crest and a green beak. In The Lost Age, they are battled throughout Mars Lighthouse as one of the "final" random monsters of the mandatory game.

The Fell Raptor (ヒユージバード Huge Bird) exists as a named but unused variant in the code in The Lost Age, where none of its statistics and abilities are coded beyond weak placeholder abilities. Had it been used, it would have appeared as a variant with a turquoise head and crest and an orange beak.
