This is a guide detailing how to find the Sasa Panda in Old Armorica Road during Chapter 1 and complete your Combat Notebook in The Legend of Heroes: Trails from Zero.
Sasa Panda Location
One of the optional tasks in Trails from Zero is completing the Combat Notebook, of which you’ll get several rewards throughout the game at certain milestones from the CPD. Many of the enemies that you can encounter are one-time encounters (such as bosses) and you’ll want to make sure that you scan every single one for a Trophy/Achievement.
Even more troublesome, is that some enemies won’t show as enemies on the field areas, instead, there’s a chance they may be encountered when triggering battles with other enemies. The Sasa Panda is one such enemy.
As you travel through Old Armorica Road, you may notice an enemy, Death Corolla, an enemy made up of sunflowers. You’ll encounter these enemies throughout Old Armorica Road and when you go into battle with them, there’s a chance that the Sasa Panda may appear alongside them. This is purely RNG, so you may need to fight several before you finally encounter one, just make sure you’re ready with a Battle Scope or Analyze when you finally do encounter one.
The best place to respawn Death Corollas is by passing through the second screen transition to the third screen of this area. Once you return to the second screen, you’ll find a nearby Death Corolla to the northeast and using High-Speed mode, you can quickly traverse the area to fight this enemy until a Sasa Panda spawns.
