Mimics are enemies found in the Bank.


Mimics disguise themselves within the shop of one of the merchants in the Bank. The merchant will act as normal until the player chooses to buy from the shop. After buying an item, the Mimic consumes the merchant and its disguise is revealed, attacking the player.

Once the Mimic is defeated, it will drop the item the player bought with improved rewards depending on what shop the Mimic was disguised as. If the item came from a food shop, the player receives two food items for what they payed for. If the item was from a weapon or a skill shop, the item receives two additional gear level then it normally would.[a]
