Raptors are a type of dinosaur that live in Prehistoria. The purple variety is fought in the introduction of the game as a boss.
After leaving Omnitopia and crash-landing the Aeroglider, the Hero became lost in the jungles of Prehistoria, with only a bone for a weapon. While exploring, he came across a clearing with four Raptors that attacked him.
There are four Raptors, fought one at a time. They leap from the bushes to attack, and then run around the arena fighting similarly to normal Raptors for a while, before vanishing back into the bushes. The bushes sometimes shake to telegraph their attacks, sometimes not. The last Raptor has double the HP of the first three.
Each defeated Raptor earns the player 16 experience and 29 Talons, a substantial bounty when starting the game. If the player defeats all four Raptors, they receive a Petal, 50 additional Talons, and a villager in Fire Eyes' Village (middle hut) will give them a free Grass Vest. All these rewards combined makes up for a total of 286 Talons and 64 exp.
There is a small event the first time that the Hero entering in the sewer maze of the Volcano, this Raptor variation appears behind a chest and run after seeing the Hero, probably to warn about intruders to the evil clone of Elizabeth. It runs away but it actually never leaves the room. It remains hidden at the end of the left sewer pipe. It can be killed with alchemy like Acid Rain or with a charged up Horn Spear attack.
The small bushes cannot actually be cut down with any weapon (when using cheats). Once the boss fight is triggered, the exit to the Southern Jungle is completely removed too.
