The Tim is an organic enemy in CrossWorlds. They can be encountered in Maroon Valley and Faj'ro Temple.


These slimy creatures spend most of their time halfway underground almost looking like a deformed stone. Their bodies are extremely flexible and can fit into holes the size of a hand. Ironically they do not like overheating and will get extremely hostile when exposed to it for too long. In their enraged form they will spit out scorching hot rocks and move much faster. According to some insight by C'tron worms posses 5 hearts. It's a mystery how they fit into this elastic body.

Appearance[ | ]

Tim is technically classified as a sandworm by CrossWorlds, but seems in practice to have more in common with a mobile volcano. The visible part is a fleshy conic shape with teeth and mouth on top.

Combat[ | ]

Tim spends its time in a fight either burrowing and moving, where it can't be hit, or standing still and spewing out a single, small boulder, or a bigger boulder that divides into three smaller ones when hitting the ground, giving it a bigger coverage. Both are directed at the player and cannot be shielded since they fall from above. Even though it is extremely resistant to attacks, attacking it enough with Heat will break it, lowering its defense, but also granting it faster and stronger attacks, one being a fiery version of the big boulder that, instead of dividing, explodes in three long bursts of flames, or a volley of four small boulders, the last two of which are fired at the same time.

Tim also has few features that are rarely found in enemies, namely immunity to being knocked around and to be lifted up by Combat Arts.

Strategies[ | ]

Since Tim's attacks cannot be parried, don't even try to use the shield. Instead, focus on moving and dodging when it attacks and, if you can't avoid a hit, either use Guard-sphere-icon Guard Sphere or take the hit. Try to keep some distance and start hitting it with the Heat element first until it breaks, then use the earned SP to take it out as fast as possible in Neutral mode because Tim becomes resistant to Heat after being broken. If you engage Tim alongside other enemies, it is recommended to leave it there and kill the other foes first, as you would be able to do so while Tim is not enraged and its attacks are sporadic and easier to dodge.
