Fireflies are common trap drones, specialized in beam-element cannons. While enemy drones are always equipped with an FCS, none of which are buildable or obtainable in the Story Chapters, let alone pre-Endgame Badlands, and most allied drones do not have the movement range or cannon range to reach these enemies. By comparison, the player's firefly is fairly weak, and is missing during the most crucially difficult part of the game.
Hicar-E is the drone controlled by Yui, first joining the player's side as an ally force in Chapter 3, then leaving at Chapter 11, rejoining as an ally force along with Jet-I in Chapter 19. It's name is a pun on the Japanese name "Hikari", meaning light; referring to it's signature cannon weapon, the Aura Beam.
The firefly is an easily-favoured drone, with beam-element cannons. Beam element is unobtainable as an option for arguably the entire span of the Story Chapters, or at least two thirds of the game, making the firefly a very special drone. Fireflies are weak and can be one-hit-killed by any attack later in the game, but are very dangerous against high-defense units. Fireflies are good with guns, especially early in the game.
