KNS-1000 is a shadow in Persona Q2: New Cinema Labyrinth.



An F.O.E that takes the form of a medium sized security drone. Compared to other F.O.Es in the game, they are not very powerful and can be defeated on spot. However, if the party chooses to ignore it and it detects them, much more powerful SCM security robots will be alerted to pursue them in a speed of two steps per player step. Due to the overwhelmingly high speed of the SCM robots, killing KNS drones to prevent attracting attention from them is almost mandatory to prevent surprise attacks by much more dangerous F.O.Es.

They are also required to be fought in two mid-boss battles in A.I.G.I.S; One of them must be defeated alongside a pair of UIY-XXXX in order to rescue the P3 hero and Aigis, while the Overseer can summon them while confronting the party. (Although only the Overseer needs to be defeated to end the fight in that instance and technically the drones can be ignored.)

It is weak to wind and electric and is vulnerable to panic, strength and magic binds. However, if the party hits it with a weakness during the Overseer fight, he will cast the corresponding screens to cover it. It attacks by using assault shot and bolt dance, and can occasionally cast Pulinpa which can be dangerous if left unchecked.
