Scarlet Nexus Vase Paws Guide: Where to Find and Farm

Looking for Scarlet Nexus Vase Paws? Here's where to find them and what you'll get for your efforts.

Scarlet Nexus Vase Paws might be some of the most distinctive Others you’ll encounter in the game, but that doesn’t make them easy to find. You’ll need to take some Vase Paws out for the Surprise Test quest.

That might not be the most interesting reason to take out Vase Paws, but there is a better reason to farm these nightmares-in-corsets: Battle Records. Whatever you need them for, here’s where to find Scarlet Nexus’ Vase Paws.

Scarlet Nexus Vase Paws Location

Where to find Scarlet Nexus Vase Paws.

You’ll run across Vase Paws during an early scripted sequence in New Himuka. After that, you can find them wandering in the Upper-Level Construction Site in Kikuchiba. Some say they’ve had luck finding them in the Mid-Level Shopping District. 

However, the in-game glossary says the only Vase Paw location is the Upper-Level Construction Site, and I’ve only ever run across Scrummys of various kinds in the Shopping District.

You’ll know the Vase Paws when you see them. They’re a pair of legs in a corset with roses growing out the top.

This specific quest makes you defeat Vase Paws in midair, so you’ll need to use Yuito’s or Kasane’s jump attack to launch them. That’s the “jump” and “basic melee attack” buttons or keys pressed at the same time. 

Unless you’ve invested your Brain Points in the mid-air combos, it’ll be easier to launch the Paws when they’re on the verge of defeat. That way, you can finish them off with just an extra hit or two from the basic mid-air combo.

Vase Paw Farming

What Vase Paws look like in Scarlet Nexus.

If you want Battle Records or other Materials for the shop exchange, Vase Paws get you Battle Record A, Paws Suppression materials, plus Other Ecology A and C.

These are all handy if you need to stock up before a mission and don’t feel like spending money on essential items such as Jelly.

That's everything you need to know about Scarlet Nexus Vase Paws, but be sure to check out our other Scarlet Nexus guides for more tips.


Josh Broadwell started gaming in the early '90s. But it wasn't until 2017 he started writing about them, after finishing two history degrees and deciding a career in academia just wasn't the best way forward. You'll usually find him playing RPGs, strategy games, or platformers, but he's up for almost anything that seems interesting.
