Rockma are a shadowy gray color and seem to resemble rhinos. Rockma do considerably more damage than a Bento Buck. However, they are much slower. After killing a Rockma, they drop their gray Rockma Hide. Also, Rockma have spikes on their back and therefore cannot be saddled.
Habitat and Population
Rockma drop Rockma Hide which is only used in a few recipes as a raw material. Rockma Hide is a key ingredient in making platemail armor. Plating armor increases an armor's melee damage resistance at the cost of its ranged damage resistance. Examples include Iron, Steel, and Bluesteel Platemail.
Rockma are neutral animals, meaning that they will not attack you unless you damage them in some way. This means that if push them into the ocean, they will still try to attack you while they are drowning. However, rockma will not continuously damage you like teraphyx or cave lynx. Instead, they will only attack you as long as they are still taking damage.
Be sure to have some armor or at least a very strong weapon (Like a mithril sword). Hunting these without at least one of these factors can be dangerous and tedious. Another way is to push it into the ocean, which will start to make it lose health. One can also use a spear to avoid being damaged.

Since rockma hide can only be found naturally in one place on each map, this item is essential to those that want to advance to the mithril/bluesteel age with strong armor. Because of this, it can be used as a good trading item.
