      The elite thorn linked bot has a pretty good spawn rate in the cluster overlooked by the cliff on the proscribed route for the elite medium kamikaze and kamikaze gunner, which is to say the stone slab with the enemies on it at the bottom of the cliff between the route to the desert housing and the entrance to the desert zone. A good idea to just have a peek into that crowd once in a while if you're trying to spawn the latter two, cuz that flooded city route is an equally tedious one.

          I managed to come across the special monsters more frequently as I leveled up on a regular play through. There more likely to show up before your to powerful stay around lv 50. Use the DLC fruit and mask to stop leveling. Also The desert mid flyers enhanced are not in part c but routes a and b .. as for the reverse goliath I got it once when I was little enough for it to kill me and it did I never saw it again lol

            Don't think this is a complete list. I have everything here, as well as Emil, though not Emil Clones yet, and am only at 98%. Unless Emil Clones is worth 2%.

                  Are you sure this is a full list? Out of this list I'm literally missing 3, but I'm at 96%, it feels like I'm missing more than just three. I'll confirm once I gather the last three and see where I'm at

                    Not sure if anyone has mentioned this before, but from what I've observed it seems that enemies that have multiple variants (weapon types) do not add to the unit data completion percentage till the player has discovered all of the respective unit's variants (i.e. all Enhanced Medium Flyer types).

                        Where are there Enhanced Small Bipeds? Need help to find those machines. I just can't complete Unit Data otherwise. Chapter or possible spawn location would be very helpful. Thanks in advance.

                          Can you split A2 in two different unit under Android?

                          Long Hair (when meeting her the first time at the Forest Chamber)
                          Short Hair (Route C/D when choosing to fight as 9S against A2 as final boss)

                          Got little confused when I followed this and got 99% and realized I haven't done ending D yet XD

                            Whoever worded some of these locations are just terrible.
                            Specifically saying something like "the far right side of oil field" When the oil field is a small area that spawns no enemies, and if it's outside of the oil field, it'd be much easier to state the location from the point view of desert: center.

                                  The thorn type enhanced multisphere enemies spawn more reliably in that room in the factory with the literal mountain of android corpses.
