Follow along with me if you want to know everything, be sure to read the last paragraph of this introduction. I think it is also important to note that this guide WILL have a few spoilers (bosses names and late-game enemy drops of course). This guide is directed toward an audience: People who want 100% in their game and those that just want to find out information, like where to get the item "Salt" (ie.) THIS IS A COMPLETE BESTIARY! Meaning that I won't just give you the information, I will show you many other aspects of each enemy, their attacks, how to avoid, where they can be found, some good places to hunt them, etc. Version Number [2A] -------------- 0.20 Started guide, wrote the whole A section and most of B - 10/26/08 0.40 Finished B (added lots more), added essay I wrote on forum. Fixed ToC Started C, revised stuff. - 10/27/08 0.80 Wrote a breathtaking amount of items, including most of C and D. - 10/28/02 0.95 Wrote 40 more enemies, edited a bit. 1.00 Finally! AFter long hours of toiling, I have completed it! 11/9/08 Table of Contents [3A] ----------------- It's always good to be able to skip around, and I'm sure you have noticed the numbers in the [] above. They will help you move around my guide fast. Just enter the letters/numbers/characters in the brackets [] to ctrl + f and you'll be on your way :).

For example, to jump to the first enemy (number 1), Bat, you type in 1C. (Possible numbers range from 1 to 121) Conclusion - 0D Contact - 1D Special Thanks - 2D Legal Information - 3D Format ------ While I still have your attention, I think it would be important if I told you the way the Enemy Information part of this guide will be set up: (Enemy name/number here) - HP: (HP here) - Exp: (Exp gained from killing one here) Where it is found: (first in-game, but for enemies like Evil Force, maybe the later areas). Description: (Description here) Weakness: (Weaknesses) Resistance: (Resistance information here) Drop: (Insert drop here with **** to show the stars which signify the rarity) Attacks: (Insert attacks here) How to avoid: (Insert strategy) Good Specific way to get their information. (Next Enemy info here) ____________________________ |How to do it yourself! [0B]| ---------------------------- General, vague tips on hunting information ------------------------------------------ - The L button is the backdash. - Jumping is your friend many times. - The above two tips were just to help any newbies with questions about controls. - Locate where the enemy you are hunting is (a general area like the Monastary) - Move from room to room, and find a good room. A good room includes: 1) Lots of the enemies you are looking for 2) Few other enemies 3) Easy access to the exits (the doors from room to room) - Find a good glyph to use, that is strong against that enemy - Equip it on both X and Y if you want - Figure out the enemy's movement pattern - Find a spot where they cannot attack you, for example, a slope on the side. - Kill the enemy/enemies, go through the door from room to room (to respawn them) - Repeat steps until you are sastified with results. Note: If you are hunting a drop and it says it is *, then they will be casting a glyph of some sort, absorb it while they are casting it. An example of an enemy like this is the Necromancer Some drawbacks on hunting information [2B] ------------------------------------- - It may be frustrating at times, a *** star drop might be much harder to get than a ***** star drop (I have gotten the ***** star drop two times once before getting the ***). - You may find yourself overleveled, this might not be a good idea if you are against grinding (I know I'm not, which is why I am doing this =P) - Not only frustrating, but this might be a time-consuming effort. I suggest you to play on with the game until you feel that you under-leveled (if ever!) Then, instead of attacking random enemies to level up, fight the ones in which you need the information on. Resistance and Weakness [3B] ----------------------- The icons in the enemy information box display as follows: 1) If the icon is in red, it is weak against it. Use that type of attack. 2) If the icon is in blue, it is strong against it. Avoid that type of attack. 3) If the icon is missing, aka in gray, it is normal against it. Now, from left to right, the weaknesses/resistance are: Strike, Slash, Fire, Ice, Lightning, Light, Dark, Poison, Curse, and Stone This is very important, you must learn what you can use to kill and what you can't. Balancing your usage of the attack types is a good idea. BTW, dominantly, I have used hammer, sword, and lightning. Not too many enemies that can avoid all three. Drop Rarity [4B] ----------- Drops are sorted into one of five categories: * = Really common drop OR a glyph that you must absorb while it is casting. ** = A little bit more rare. *** = Yet even more rare. **** = Getting real tough to hunt this drop. ***** = Ouch. Good luck getting it. Let me make it clear here: A ***** star drop cannot be assumed to be the same as a ***** star drop for another enemy. Drops are RANDOM and one person can get a ***** drop on his first kill, while another guy is frustrated with hunting/"farming" the drop - sitting there for a hour and nothing. Ways to increase the chance that you get a drop are as follows: 1) Increase LUCK using rings, equipment, etc. 2) Wear the treasure hat 3) Use the R-button glyph to get a LUCK boost Other stuff you should know [5B] --------------------------- First, I don't count finding the enemy for the first time as "getting their information", I count it as getting their drops). I will be putting "N/A" in the section for "Good Specific way to get their information" Second, all enemies will give you damage from random collisions. I won't be adding this to the attack list. So the first few enemies might actually won't have any attacks. Thanks for your understanding (saves me my hand =D) Third, when I am referring to a "door", I mean the pathway from one room to another. When I am referring to an "entrance" (or exit), I mean the entrance to the whole map. When I am referring to the first screen of the map, I mean the one with the yellow arrows pointing to the exit/entrance. About Bosses [6B] ------------ THIS GUIDE WILL NOT COVER HOW TO AVOID ALL THE BOSS ATTACKS. I SIMPLY AM NOT PROFICIENT ENOUGH (haven't even gotten one medal yet) TO DO IT. SO, SORRY, REFER TO A WALKTHROUGH OR A BOSS FAQ FOR THIS TYPE OF INFO. Yet...I do feel that I have experience on a few bosses. You might find a few tips, I know all the attacks for a few bosses. So yeah, enjoy what is there and if you want to contribute, just check the contact section out and I'll give you credit as due. Thanks :). ______________________ |Enemy Information [0C]| ---------------------- No.001 - Bat [1C] HP: 1 Exp: 1 Where it is found: Monastery Description: A bloodsucking bat that lurks in the dark. Weakness: Slash and Fire Resistance: None Drop: None Attacks: Flies in your direction How to avoid: Jump or backdash away. Good Specific way to get their information: N/A No.002 - Zombie [2C] HP: 9 Exp: 1 Where it is found: Monastery Description: A lively animated corpse, magically brought to life. Weakness: Slash, Fire, Light, Stone. Resistance: None. Drop: Rotten Meat **** Attacks: Sometimes spawns from the ground How to avoid: Just jumping and you can kill easily :) Good Specific way to get their information: You shouldn't worry about the **** star drop, there are so many zombies to kill that you should get it easily. If not, there is a room that has respawning zombies, upper right exit of the room you get magnus in (even more specifically the room to the right of the first save point) No.003 - Skeleton [3C] HP: 12 Exp: 3 Where it is found: Monastery Description: A skeletal corpse controlled by magic. One of many. Weakness: Strike, fire, light Resistance: Ice, Dark Drop: None Attacks: Throws bone in midair at your direction How to avoid: Use a backdash when he throws a bone (or you can even attack it and make it disappear). Good Specific way to get their information: N/A No.004 - Ghost [4C] HP: 5 Exp: 3 Where it is found: Monastery Description: The reanimated ghost of a horse killed on the battlefield. Weakness: Slash, fire Resistance: Hammer Drop: None Attacks: A charging rush to your immediete spot. How to avoid: It will stop for a moment in mid-air, you should be able to tell (normally it would be constantly moving). Just move away from your current position. Good Specific way to get their information: N/A No.005 - Banshee [5C] HP: 3 Exp: 4 Where it is found: Monastery Description: An apparition whose chilling wait stops men cold. Weakness: Light Resistance: Strike, Sword, Dark Drop: None Attacks: Screams and hits anything in a small circle. How to avoid: Just back away from her, she will lean back to signify her attack. Good Specific way to get their information: N/A No.006 - Bone Scimitar [6C] HP: 17 Exp: 5 Where it is found: Monastery Description: A skeleton warrior. Strangely, it fights with genuine courage. Weakness: Strike, fire, light Resistance: Ice, dark Drop: Secare * (Not obtained by absorbing directly from enemy while casting) Attacks: Attack with sword. How to avoid: Backdashing is good, or jumping. Good Specific way to get their information: It's very simple, this is only a one star drop. Just find a room with at least one in it and repeat until you get it. No.007 - Sea Stinger [7C] HP: 6 Exp: 1 Where it is found: Kaldius Channel Description: A carnivorous and disturbingly agile fish creature. Weakness: Slash, lightning Resistance: Ice Drop: None Attacks: None (again, it will just try to run into you) How to avoid: N/A Good Specific way to get their information: N/A No.008 - Nominon [8C] HP: 16 Exp: 7 Where it is found: Ruvas Forest Description: A evil, soul'sucking spirit that paralyzes its victims. Weakness: Slash, fire Resistance: Strike Drop: None Attacks: Swoop down and grab you, giving you damage constantly from him and from any other enemy that might be around. You can't move for about 3 seconds. How to avoid: You can somewhat predict when this enemy will grab you. They swoop down to a lower altitude then freeze for a split second, before moving somewhat straight vertically down. This enemy is very annoying because you can jump and collide into it and take damage, not to mention that it will be aggresive and might lead you to even die quick if there are lots of enemies around when it grabs you. Good Specific way to get their information: N/A No.009 - Axe Knight [9C] HP: 23 Exp: 9 Where it is found: First found in Ruvas Forest, makes appearances in Monastery too (as well as once in Minera Prison Island) Description: A heavily-armored warrior with an equally heavy axe. Weakness: Strike, lightning Resistance: Fire Drop: Copper Ore **** Ascia * (Not obtained by absorbing directly from enemy while casting) Attacks: 1) Throws axe at regular height (hits you if you are in normal stance) 2) Throws axe at lower height (hits you if you are in crouch) How to avoid: You can change the way you are standing to accomodate with the height he is throwing the axe in. Good Specific way to get their information: Ascia comes easy, and for me, copper ores came too. But if for some weird reason you have a problem, skip it for now and see if you can get it later on. If not, just do a Ruvas Forest run, aka kill everything quickly (or find a better spot to hunt him). No.010 - Une [10C] HP: 1 Exp: 1 Where it is found: Ruvas Forest - haven't seen it anywhere else. Description: This plant's diet of blood results in odd mutations. Weakness: Slash, fire Resistance: Lightning, Light Drop: None. Attacks: The Une does not appear until you are within range of it. Be on your guard when walking, it can disrupt your attack patterns. How to avoid: Jump over it. It's stationary. Good Specific way to get their information: N/A No.011 - Merman [11C] HP: 17 Exp: 6 Where it is found: Kalidus Channel Description: This aquatic hunter spots prey from the water before leaping. Weakness: Slash, lightning, Poison, and Curse Resistance: Strike, Ice Drop: Meat **** Zircon **** Attacks: Jumps out of water, then may shoot blast of water. How to avoid: Make sure never to be directly below a Merman (if you are on a platform and they are in the below water). The water blast is easy enough, the Merman pauses before shooting giving you time to jump. Good Specific way to get their information: Welcome to the first real item getting experience. The two items, meat and zircon will come only after we do a little bit of hunting. First, you will need to access the Kalidus Channel's left entrance. Go in and past the first screen. Clear the second room (only has a few enemies). The third room (including the first room with the yellow arrows) is what we are aiming for. There are quite a few merman there along with other enemies that you might want to hunt also. No.012 - Necromancer [12C] HP: 22 Exp: 7 Where it is found: Ruvas Forest Description: Uses black magic to animate and control corpses. Weakness: Stone Resistance: None Drop: Fidelis Caries * (glyph that can be absorbed) Attacks: He will teleport around, not really an attack though. This enemy will summon zombies by raising his hand and a glyph will appear. Zombies that appear will be the generic ones you have fought before. How to avoid: Once this happens, quickly kill any other enemy there is and absorb the glyph. Good Specific way to get their information: See the above on how to get the glyph. No.013 - Bone Archer [13C] HP: 18 Exp: 5 Where it is found: Monastery Description: An archer who attacks with bone and arrows. Weakness: Strike, fire, light Resistance: Ice, dark Drop: Arcus * (Not obtained by absorbing directly from enemy while casting) Attacks: Shoots arrows out of its bow How to avoid: It will crouch and pull an arrow out. Just jump over it. Good Specific way to get their information: One star drop. Simple matter of killing enough of them, you probably will get it without having to go way out of your way. No.014 - Spear Guard [14C] HP: 24 Exp: 9 Where it is found: Minera Prison Island Description: An armored warrior wielding a long lance. Weakness: Strike, lightning, stone Resistance: None Drop: Copper Ore **** Hasta * (Not obtained by absorbing directly from enemy while casting) Attacks: 1) If you attack him with a long range weapon, he will throw his spear in reply. 2) If you attack him with physical contact (strike or slash), he will reply with a sweep with his spear. It isn't dangerous, but he's got a number of fancy moves. 3) If you are in a 2 story room (split in half by a platform or wall), and you are in the upper side, and he is in the lower side, he will shoot his spear vertically up and hit you. Same goes if it's vice-versa. How to avoid: 1) Jump to avoid his spear. 2) Jump or backslide like normal 3) Just don't stand below him, or if you must cross his area, you should rush. You can also attack his spear as it comes up or down. Good Specific way to get their information: I found an interesting plan. In the room where you meet him for the first time (and with the spotlights for the first time), you should try the following: Equip Arcus to both X and Y. Enter the room from the left door. Wait a few seconds, he should be walking into the room. Spam X and Y to shoot arrows fast. He will die quickly. This makes getting the glyph and the Copper Ore drop relatively easy. No.015 - Invisible Man [15C] HP: 70 Exp: 15 Where it is found: Monastery Description: A magician who gave up his soul to gain invisibility. Weakness: Slash, fire, curse Resistance: None Drop: None Attacks: When you approach him, his cloak will fall on the ground and he will come in a glossy geletan-like shape. He will attack you by using physical contact (can't tell exactly what he does, he is invisible after all) How to avoid: You need to be on the offense often, he is dangerous compared to all the other monsters you have fought in the monastery. I am sure you can backslash and jump his attacks, but timing is a key. When he runs toward you, might want to consider jumping because he probably will attack soon. After his attack, you can get your own hits in before retreating again. Good Specific way to get their information: N/A No.016 - Gelso [16C] HP: 14 Exp: 4 Where it is found: Kalidus Channel Description: A rare, water-dwelling creature. Weakness: Slash and lightning Resistance: Strike and Ice Drop: None Attacks: None (last time I'll write this, not including physical contact) They are usually respawning constantly. How to avoid: Just jump out of the way, no real gain killing them unless you need all distractions out of the way, they'll just respawn back. Good Specific way to get their information: N/A No.017 - Needles [17C] HP: 10 Exp: 2 Where it is found: Kaldius Channel Description: A hard-shelled sea urchin. A questionable delicacy. Weakness: Fire, lightning Resistance: Ice Drop: None Attacks: Sits around with it's spikes in the water. Stationary, no attacks therefore. How to avoid: Pretty easy to kill it...but if you must avoid just jump. Good Specific way to get their information: N/A. No.018 - Demon [18C] HP: 44 Exp: 22 Where it is found: Minera Prison Island Description: A fell beast of the underworld. Weakness: Slash, light Resistance: Dark Drop: None Attacks: Note: I will be writing the following for pretty much all demons. Their attacks are basically the same, save a few added attacks. 1) Swoop down and hits you even in crouched position. 2) Fly at lower altitudes, but no swoop. Can crouch to avoid. How to avoid: 1) Backdash out of the way or run quick when you see the demon pause before swooping. 2) Just back off from it and keep attacking. Good Specific way to get their information: N/A No.019 - Fishhead [19C] HP: 50 Exp: 7 Where it is found: Kaldius Channel Description: A violent fish, with a spirit as fossilized as its body. Weakness: Strike, fire, light Resistance: Ice, dark Drop: Salt **** Attacks: It's stationary. Shoots projectiles out. How to avoid: Just duck when it is about to shoot projectiles (or jump) Good Specific way to get their information: There are a few rooms with numerous amounts of fish heads, stacked upon each other. Just go in one and start a fest. No.020 - Dark Octopus [20C] HP: 40 Exp: 18 Where it is found: Kaldius channel Description: An octopus reature, tormented by black magic. Weakness: Slash, lightning, curse Resistance: Strike, ice Drop: Black Ink **** Attacks: Shoots out ink that will actually harm you. How to avoid: Just get out of the proximity of the ink. Good Specific way to get their information: I found that Dark Octopus are incompetent and would not drop their drop. How I solved this: Using the right entrance to the room, I equipped the thunder glyph, Vol Fulgur, on both my X and Y then spammed it against all three of them. The thunder glyph was sufficient so that if I stood at the very entrance, I could hit all three of the enemies, though one at a time. Then I could just rinse and repeat with this pattern. My only difficulty was with MP, but recharging it only takes a short time. No.021 - Killer Fish [21C] HP: 38 Exp: 17 Where it is found: Kaldius Channel Description: A ferocious fish. Fetches a high prices among epicures. Weakness: Slash, lightning, poison, curse Resistance: Ice Drop: Raw Killer Fish ***** Attacks: Charges a little bit (moves 1.5x faster than normal movement) How to avoid: Just jumping is fine Good Specific way to get their information: This drop is a real pain. The unanimous decision of where to hunt this fish is the pirate ship area in Kaldius Channel. Don't go inside the pirate ship, but more like the areas outside of it. No.022 - Forneus [22C] HP: 43 Exp: 19 Where it is found: Kaldius Channel Description: A demonic sea creature from the oceans of the underworld. Weakness: Slash, lightning Resistance: Strike, Ice Drop: Salt *** Attacks: None How to avoid: N/A Good Specific way to get their information: This one was a tougher one. I found a good room, with two of them floating around with just a few annoying distractions, like needles. I would enter the room, jump up, then quickly hit the two necessary hits to kill it. Jumping up again, I would attack the second jellyfish. I'd then let my character drop to the floor then rinse and repeat. I think my luck for this drop was bad, *** isn't supposed to be all that hard, so maybe you, the reader, won't have a problem with this. No.023 - The Creature [23C] HP: 260 Exp: 90 Where it is found: Minera Prison Island Description: A mad scientists created this wonder of artifical biology. Weakness: Slash Resistance: Lightning Drop: None Attacks: 1) Uses a flamethrower to attack you if you are in proximity 2) Uses lightning bolts to attack the ground in front of him. How to avoid: You can avoid both by running off/backdashing Good Specific way to get their information: N/A No.024 - Black Crow [24C] HP: 13 Exp: 13 Where it is found: Tymoe Mountains Description: An evil bird with an aquired taste for human flesh. Weakness: Slash, fire, curse, stone Resistance: None Drop: None. Attacks: Flys toward you when you get near it. How to avoid: Just kill it fast or jump. Good Specific way to get their information: N/A No.025 - Skull Spider [25C] HP: 32 Exp: 20 Where it is found: First seen in Kaldius Channel, frequent in Tymoe Mountains. Description: A monsterous spider with a skull-shaped body. Weakness: Strike, fire, light Resistance: None Drop: Anti-Venon *** Fidelis Aranea ***** Attacks: It will poison you if it touches you. It hugs walls and can walk upside-down. How to avoid: Kill it fast, or avoid it completely, taking a totally different path. Good Specific way to get their information: There is a method to get the two drops real early: The skull spider is first seen in the pirate ship in Kaldius Channel. It is close to the room where you save one of the villagers. Our goal is to start from the room where we saved the villager, slider under the gap then stand on the slanted ledge. The spider should be on it's way. Now, equip Vol Fulgar to both X and Y, and spam. Once dead, rinse and repeat. You should get the drop after a decent amount of time (at least for me). If you have trouble, just wait until later in Tymoe Mountains for one of the rooms that contain four spiders (in a large room). No.026 - Scarecrow [26C] HP: 56 Exp: 26 Where it is found: Tymoe Mountains Description: Quite a threat, if he only had a brain. Weakness: Slash, fire, light Resistance: Dark Drop: None Attacks: He bounces around. He will only damage you if you touch the upper part of his body. That means that if you are on higher ground and he is below you, you run the risk of getting hit. How to avoid: Just jump and attack, make sure you can corner him then it becomes fairly simple. Good Specific way to get their information: N/A No.027 - Sea Demon [27C] HP: 88 Exp: 33 Where it is found: First seen in Kaldius Channel, later in Somnus Reef Description: An evil demon of the sea, skilled in ice magic. Weakness: Lightning, light Resistance: Ice, dark Drop: Grando * (absorbable glyph) Attacks: Note: I will be writing the following for pretty much all demons. Their attacks are basically the same, save a few added attacks. 1) Swoop down and hits you even in crouched position. 2) Fly at lower altitudes, but no swoop. Can crouch to avoid. 3) Ice attack How to avoid: 1) Backdash out of the way or run quick when you see the demon pause before swooping. 2) Just back off from it and keep attacking. 3) Absorb the glyph before he casts. Or just jump over the spell Good Specific way to get their information: See number 3 above^^ No.028 - Winged Guard [28C] HP: 10 Exp: 1 Where it is found: Tymoe Mountain Description: A skeleton given wings and made to fly. Weakness: Strike, fire, light Resistance: Ice, dark Drop: None Attacks: None. How to avoid: N/A Good Specific way to get their information: N/A No.029 - Nightmare [29C] HP: 44 Exp: 27 Where it is found: Tymoe Mountains Description: Those who witness its coming soon know death. Weakness: Strike, fire, light Resistance: None Drop: Horse Hair *** Attacks: None (putting this in random places just that ppl will at least read this one time: touching you and doing damage does not equal an attack in my guide). How to avoid: N/A Good Specific way to get their information: Just get to the warp point on the right and go to the immediete left room. There will be two Nightmares there. They only have 44 health, so using Vol Fulgar on both X and Y, I could kill two of them relatively quick. You want to spam the attack when their exposed back is to you. Don't worry about losing MP, you will only have a short time frame to attack them and waiting for them to come back alone will let you restore your health. No.030 - Rock Knight [30C] HP: 100 Exp: 45 Where it is found: Tymoe Mountains Description: A soldier armed with stones and a throwing arm. Weakness: Strike, lightning, Stone Resistance: Fire Drop: Iron Ore *** Attacks: Throwing rock at you. How to avoid: Backdashing after the rock is thrown works. Good Specific way to get their information: I don't feel this drop is too hard, there are rock knights at virtually every bridge for a while. No.031 - Fire Demon [31C] HP: 111 Exp: 66 Where it is found: Tymoe Mountains Description: This demon is master of the consuming flames. Weakness: Ice, light Resistance: Fire, dark Drop: Crimson Greaves **** Crimson Mail **** Ignis * (Absorbable glyph) Attacks: Note: I will be writing the following for pretty much all demons. Their attacks are basically the same, save a few added attacks. 1) Swoop down and hits you even in crouched position. 2) Fly at lower altitudes, but no swoop. Can crouch to avoid. 3) Fire attack How to avoid: 1) Backdash out of the way or run quick when you see the demon pause before swooping. 2) Just back off from it and keep attacking. 3) Absorb the glyph before he casts. Or just get away from him and jump. Good Specific way to get their information: With three drops to obtain, this might be a slight problem for some, especially since two of them are ****. The first demon will spawn right after we go past the first candle. Jump and aim yourself so that you land in that area. The demon will appear with all it's animation. You can't hurt it while it is still appearing, so I took the time to break the candle 'n get some $$$. =D but yeah, anyhow, it'll take time to learn, but you want to attack the demon right as he can be hit. I did 50 damage per regular attack, so in three hits he would be down. After, you should rinse and repeat. Eventually you will get his drops (this is the best place to hunt them from what I've seen). Note: His * star drop is the glyph he casts, just absorb it. Enter via the upper right-hand corner. Go through the spider room and exit to the right. Go down to the warp room and warp to the other one at the right. Go through the left door and you are at your destination. No.32 - Bitterfly [32C] HP: 33 Exp: 29 Where it is found: Misty Forest Road Description: Invisibility is this creature's cloak, and its weapon. Weakness: Slash, ice, dark Resistance: Light Drop: None. Attacks: None. How to avoid: None. Good Specific way to get their information: N/A No.033 - Specter [33C] HP: 34 Exp: 31 Where it is found: Misty Forest Road Description: An eternally wandering spirit, consumed by hatred. Weakness: Light Resistance: Strike, slash, dark Drop: None Attacks: None. How to avoid: I'd just avoid this annoying enemy. Good Specific way to get their information: N/A. No.034 - Grave Digger [34C] HP: 150 Exp: 65 Where it is found: Misty Forest Road. Description: Enjoys his cursed vocation because he meets new people. Weakness: Slash, poison, curse, stone. Resistance: None. Drop: Earl Grey **** Attacks: 1) Throws spear at the beginning. Does a heck of damage. 2) He will inch toward you and either a) Pick up the spear and throw it again. The spear usually disappears 5ish seconds after he throws it. b) Attempt a kick and other stuff. How to avoid: 1) You have to jump to avoid it 2) a) Watch out for this one. I never see him pick it up, there is no animation. I would run off and spam jumps lol. b) Backdash. Good Specific way to get their information: I hated this creature, it was strong seeing how early they put in this game. But the drop itself is not that rare. Clearing the first few rooms of the Misty Forest Road from the right entrance should do the trick. No.035 - Werebat [35C] HP: 99 Exp: 50 Where it is found: Misty Forest Road. Description: A female, half-human bat. How about that. Weakness: Slash, light, curse, stone. Resistance: None. Drop: Arma Chiroptera ** Attacks: 1) Throws bat (Note: Not really an attack but it is capable of backsliding when you attack) How to avoid: 1) Kill it or jump over. Good Specific way to get their information: I personally love the glyph this enemy drops. To hunt it, start from the left entrance to the map and go all the way to the room before the White Dragon. Then go back and rinse/repeat No.036 - Black Fomor [36C] HP: 66 Exp: 49 Where it is found: Misty Forest Road Description: This monster's tongue dances with dark incantations. Weakness: Light, stone Resistance: Dark Drop: Milk *** Umbra * (Absorbable glyph) Attacks: Uses umbra. How to avoid: Absorb it. Good Specific way to get their information: Absorb the glyph. Kill the thing in the only room it is in the game. Do it until you get milk. No.037 - Enkidu [37C] HP: 450 Exp: 250 Where it is found: Misty Forest Road Description: A lonely artifical monster, its only company a white dragon. Weakness: Slash Resistance: Lightning Drop: None.

So I know there is only one room like the one I hunted in: It's a 1 by 1 room on the map, the real small one. It had one Lorelai enemy and two exits, to the right and left. It is inbetween the two warp points, closer to the lower one/save point. No.046 - Edimmu [46C] HP: 110 Exp: 57 Where it is found: Somnus Reef Description: A snake-like water dweller.

Weakness: Slash, fire Resistance: Lightning, light Drop: Mandrake Root **** Attacks: Plops out of ground and suicides dealing damage to anything in the proximity. How to avoid: Stay away from the small bubble it makes or kill it fast (you won't get any drop if it suicides, only if you kill it) Good Specific way to get their information: This one is a real pain. The mandragora will suicide kill itself right when it sees you on the screen. You will need to rush there (eliminating any enemies that might be near it), use a fire glyph to deal some massive damage and finish it with a slash glyph. Nothing better to advise you to do than to rinse and repeat. No.065 - Jersey Devil [65C] HP: 143 Exp: 100 Where it is found: Argila Swamp Description: A flying monster with a horse's head and a bat's body.

The owl is the same owl as in the previous owls. 2) Umm...kill it first? Yeah =D. Nah, more like jump over his attacks. Good idea to have killed the owl first or you risk getting juggled. Good Specific way to get their information: There is one screen where you enter from the right and the first enemy is an Owl Knight. Just keep killing it (and you can also hunt the two Mandragora behind it too).

Drop: Eye for Decay **** Attacks: None (other than flying to you of course) How to avoid: Catch this one off guard when it is at rest and then finish it before it gets a chance to fly around. Good Specific way to get their information: This one is a pretty tough one. I hear quite a few complaints regarding getting the Eye for Decay. If this is your first time seeing the Peeping Eye, don't worry about hunting it. You might get lucky and get it as you go through the castle. Hunt for it only when you have beaten Wallman at least. Once you have beaten Wallman, go back to the beginning rooms and start farming. Get every single luck item you can get out (Thief Rings, Fortune Ring , the R-button glyph that boosts Luck, Ribbons, etc.). Then, use a quick killing attack like Melio Macir to rinse out them fast. There is not too much more involved in this, just keep at it and you'll get it eventually. No.075 - Gargoyle [75C] HP: 130 Exp: 111 Where it is found: Dracula's castle.

Real beginning of the castle. Description: The blood they absorb regenerates all wounds. Weakness: Strike, fire, light Resistance: Ice, dark Drop: None. Attacks: Nothing special but note that you cannot technically kill this enemy, it will just regenerate itself after falling to the ground in a crumple. How to avoid: Since you can't beat it, and it gives no drop nor exp, walk over it's fallen body and continue moving on. Good Specific way to get their information: N/A No.077 - Black Panther [77C] HP: 168 Exp: 152 Where it is found: Dracula's Castle. Bloody Tomes. Description: A black, female panther. Weakness: Slash, fire, poison, curse, stone Resistance: Strike, light. Drop: Arma Felix **** Attacks: Scratches violently. How to avoid: This enemy can get real annoying, stay away when it uses this attack. Good Specific way to get their information: 1) There is a good room in the same place where I suggested you guys to hunt the White Formor drop. 2) I would summon a familiar like the Skull Spider to help you on this one. No.078 - Mimic [78C] HP: 293 Exp: 165 Where it is found: First seen in Tristis Pass. Later found in random maps. Description: Poses as treasure to prey on mankind's greed. Weakness: None Resistance: None Drop: None Attacks: Slide toward you fast. How to avoid: This one is annoying. The mimic is fast, so you might want to watch yourself, you will easily get hit. Good Specific way to get their information: I would kill this chest once for good, then never have to ever bother it again. Develop a habit of opening a chest then backing away from it, just in case it is a mimic. If it is, run away to the nearest exit and NEVER trigger the mimic again. Note: Opening a chest then backing away still gets you the drop. No.079 - Draculina [79C] HP: 266 Exp: 170 Where it is found: Dracula's Castle, Bloody Tomes. Description: This female vampire feasts on the blood of intruders. Weakness: Slash, fire, light, stone Resistance: Dark. Drop: Crepes Suzette *** Stephanie **** Attacks: Flies around. How to avoid: Simple enemy. Just jump + attack, repeat and it'll be dead fast. Good Specific way to get their information: Hunt around for a good room (it should be easy enough to get the drops, I got the first one just playing normally and the second one after 5 minutes of hunting only). Then, just do the normal and get the drop. This one isn't too hard because the enemy doesn't pose too much of a threat. No.080 - Tin Man [80C] HP: 256 Exp: 180 Where it is found: First seen in Minera Prison Island, later in Dracula Castle later in Large Cavern. Description: A robot with no soul, and thus no fear. Weakness: Strike, lightning Resistance: Slash. Drop: Silver Ore *** Gold Ore **** NOTE: YOU CAN CHOOSE TO HUNT HIM EARLY IN THE GAME OR LATER. I CHOSE EARLY IN THE GAME, THEREFORE MY STATS WERE SLIGHTLY LOW. Attacks: 1) Charging. He will charge you swinging his weapon. The only way to avoid this is to double jump. I frankly don't know how to attack him after you land, but long range attacks might work. If you are the type, like me, who hates long farming time, just take the damage and kill him fast. I took 61 amage per hit, but since he doesn't do this attack often (more like we won't give him the chance to do this), we won't worry since our stops to the village will be frequent. 2) Shooting missiles. This gets REAL ANNOYING. It only does 6 damage per shot, but he fires about 7-8 shots and each round comes after another. Only way to avoid this from what I've seen is ducking and approaching him by sliding (jumping will only make you land into his shots and you will be knocked back). How to avoid: Covered in above section. Good Specific way to get their information: Go to Minera Prison Island, spawn in the right side of the map. Move to the spotlight room. There will be two demons charging you in the first 5 seconds of the room. Kill them both (should be easy matter), then run into a spotlight. The tin man will be coming in a very short time period. Our goal is to unleash a Vol Macir Union (15 hearts) and then follow up with a regular attack to kill him. We will rinse and repeat and when out of hearts of low on health, quickly run to the village and replenish. I do 200ish damage with the union and 70ish with a regular attack. Tin man has 256 hp so make sure that one union + one regular attack is enough to finish him. We don't want to give him chances to use all his fancy powerful attacks. NOTE: ALL THE ABOVE WAS IF YOU WANT TO GET HIM EARLY IN THE GAME. Here is if you want to do him later in the game: Same idea, you want to kill him fast. But this time, a regular attack of ours later in the game hits for 200 damage :). Good spots to kill him are in the Large Cavern (watch out for getting overrun though) and in Dracula's Castle. No.081 - Polkir [81C] HP: 155 Exp: 124 Where it is found: Dracula's Castle, bottom half of the screen. Description: Feasts on the precious memories of its victims. Weakness: Slash, fire Resistance: None. Drop: Fidelis Polkir *** Attacks: Glints in it's eye, outlines a path, then flames appear on it.

Weakness: Strike, lightning Resistance: Fire Drop: Silver Ore * Melio Macir **** Attacks: Swings axe. How to avoid: Move away, this enemy is slow you shouldn't have trouble.

How to avoid: Don't let it get near you, move around and kill it ASAP (it is so important that it takes priority above killing other enemies) Good Specific way to get their information: N/A. No.094 - Bugbear [94C] HP: 156 Exp: 134 Where it is found: Dracula's Castle. Description: A single-eyes fiend cloaked in lightning/ Weakness: Light Resistance: Lightning Drop: None Attacks: It has a lightning end on it's "tail" How to avoid: Make sure you don't let it zap you. Good Specific way to get their information: N/A No.095 - Spectral Sword [95C] HP: 260 Exp: 240 Where it is found: Dracula's Castle Description: This blade is as sharp and deadly as the spirit that possesses it. Weakness: Strike, lightning Resistance: Fire Drop: Melio Secare **** Attacks: 1) Summons shields to protect. 2) Sword attacks. Pretty fancy and all. How to avoid: 1) Blow them up with regular attacks 2) You can destroy the swords too, but if they attack you, jumping or sliding is a good bet. Good Specific way to get their information: The glyph is bad in my opinion, but there are two rooms in where the only enemies are these. No.096 - Automaton ZX27 [96C] HP: 256 Exp: 128 Where it is found: Dracula's Castle Description: A nearly-complete mobile robot. Model No. 27 Weakness: Lightning Resistance: Strike, slash Drop: Silver Ore * Arma Machina **** Attacks: None How to avoid: N/A Good Specific way to get their information: Equip Fulgar on both X and Y. Go in front of it and use fulgar, making sure it is taking lots of damage. It will die shortly, rinse and repeat. Note: If there are imps in the room, you might need to allow for X to be the Melio Macir or something. Lightning doeos bad against imps. No.097 - Medusa Heads [97C] HP: 1 Exp: 1 Where it is found: Dracula's Castle. Three rooms where they spawn non-stop. Description: Medusa's severed head spawned multitudes of these pests. Weakness: Slash Resistance: None. Drop: None. Attacks: None. They petrify you though. How to avoid: There is a drop from the gorgan heads that stops this ailment. Good Specific way to get their information: N/A. No.098 - Gorgan Head [98C] HP: 1 Exp: 1 Where it is found: Dracula's Castle. Description: Created from the head of Medusa. Turns its victims into stone. Weakness: Slash Resistance: None Drop: Mirror Cuirass **** Fidelis Medusa * (absorbable glyph) Attacks: None. Petrifies on touch. How to avoid: N/A. See above "How to avoid" for tips. Good Specific way to get their information: It drops the glyph almost always. Equip all luck items to try and get the **** star to appear. Then, go in the long corridor after you used Cerebrus's glyphs. Equip Globus and spam it, watch it diminish all the enemies :). You can level up to level 3 in the Medusa summon while waiting, for those of you who know what I mean. No.099 - Mad Snatcher [99C] HP: 444 Exp: 200 Where it is found: Dracula's Castle. Right before the Eligor boss. Description: Parasite that clings to, then continaully drains its victims. Weakness: Slash, fire, light, curse, stone Resistance: None Drop: None Attacks: Swipes sword fast. How to avoid: Just kill it fast or move backwards to avoid attack. Good Specific way to get their information: N/A No.100 - Great Knight [100C] HP: 600 Exp: 450 Where it is found: Dracula's Castle Description: One of Castlevania's many elite armored guardians. Weakness: Strike, lightning Resistance: None. Drop: Knight Helm **** Melio Ascia ***** Attacks: Swings axe into ground How to avoid: Keep your distance Good Specific way to get their information: Do the normal, equip all LUCK boosting items, then get into a room that has this enemy in it. Attack, withdraw, wait for it to finish its attack, repeat. No.101 - King Skeleton [101C] HP: 700 Exp: 460 Where it is found: Dracula's Castle. Arms Depot is one place. Description: A skeleton armed with a huge battle ax. Weakness: Strike, fire, light Resistance: Ice, dark Drop: Barbarian Shoes **** Barbarian Belt **** Attacks: 1) Crouch down and attack 2) Sweep of hammer. How to avoid: 1) I never saw it attack, as I always smashed it dead before anything could happen. But I would recommend staying a good distance away from it. 2) The hammer has a small berth and you can easily make it miss you. Good Specific way to get their information: Start at the Arms Depot warp point (one before the boss in the dead end portion, lowerish right side) No.102 - Winged Skeleton [102C] HP: 30 Exp: 1 Where it is found: Dracula's Castle, way top end of the map in the room where you get the flying glyph. Description: An image of death given wings to soar through the night sky. Weakness: Strike, fire, light Resistance: Ice, dark Drop: Fidelis Alate ***** Attacks: N/A How to avoid: N/A Good Specific way to get their information: Sit in the one room where they respawn constantly. Keep killing them with anything you've got, Globus, Macir. No.103 - Final Knight [103C] HP: 666 Exp: 573 Where it is found: Dracula's Castle, in the area before Dracula fight. Several rooms also before you fight Death. Description: This elite warrior ses intruders as its quarry. Weakness: Strike, lightning Resistance: Fire, ice Drop: Knight Leggings **** Knight Cuirass **** Attacks: 1) Strikes hammer onto ground 2) Lifts weapon weirdly then crashes down sending waves of dark energy out. How to avoid: 1) Backdashing is easy enough 2) Wait until the energy is just released before double jumping. Good Specific way to get their information: This one was the LAST one for me to get. I was real frustrated at trying to get this drop so this is what I did. First, I warped into the warp room closest to the Dracula Boss room. Moving down past the large room, I killed all the enemies there. I left in the lower right exit. Then, I killed the two demons, jumped by the robot. Next room is our destination room. Equipped the best Int boost, along with one death ring (this is my 1st play- through). Equip Globus on both X and Y. For me, each hit of Globus did 102. Put the R glyph LUCK boost up, then enter the room and stand on the steps. Spam Globus until the first one dies, then you may go and kill the second one. You don't risk getting hit and dieing (watch out for this, I died accidentally once). With this method, I got the drops relatively fast. No.104 - Jiang Shi [104C] HP: 6500 Exp: 2525 Where it is found: Large Cavern. Description: This blood-sucking creature crossed the sea from the East. Weakness: Slash, fire, light Resistance: Dark Drop: Fidelis Mortus * (Can be absorbed during fight) Attacks: 1) Uses glyph 2) Shoots blue ball. Inflicts MASSIVE damage. How to avoid: 1) Absorb it. 2) Wait a few seconds for it to start moving on it's own, then equip Vol Scutum (or Melio) and use it to block the attack. Good Specific way to get their information: Once you get this boss's pattern down, he's a piece of cake. First, the ONLY two attacks are the above ones. He hops around the screen doing nothing half the time. Just jump, attack, retreat a bit. Repeat that until he decides to do one of the above. Then just do your thing and repeat. Note: After he dies, he will have this plank on his head. You can ressurect him by hitting it with a normal hit. No.105 - Demon Lord [105C] HP: 1333 Exp: 999 Where it is found: Large Cavern Description: A superior demon, more terrifying than its most dangerous kin. Weakness: Light Resistance: Dark Drop: Globus * (Can be absorbed) Attacks: 1) Uses glyph 2) Does a downward sweep 3) Hovers at a low altitude, hoping you run into him. How to avoid: 1) Absorb it. 2) Be far away enough to get out of the way. 3) Slide under him. Good Specific way to get their information: There is only one room with them in. There are two demon lords in that room. I would kill one then toy with the other until it uses globus (note that if you got globus from the fight with Barlowe, then the Drop is already filled in for you before you even kill the first Demon Lord) No.106 - Double Hammer [106C] HP: 2000 Exp: 1600 Where it is found: Large Cavern and Training Hall Description: The only thing more dangerous than a giant hammer is two. Weakness: Strike, lightning Resistance: Fire Drop: Gold Ore ** Attacks: 1) Rears back before doing an attack that spans a whole circle 2) Hammer attack. How to avoid: 1) Get away...far away. Use flight glyph is needed. 2) This one is less dangerous, I would still fly off though. Good Specific way to get their information: I will write the same method for the Double Hammers and the Weapon Masters. First, you need to equip ALL LUCK boosting items. I ended with a 64 luck in my game. Then, you need to equip Melio Macir on both X and Y. Make sure you have a good amount of hearts (I had 190). Finally, go into Large Cavern, clear the first few rooms, changing your LUCK boosting items to actually fightning items if you have trouble. When you get to the second floor though, we have reached our destination. The first immediete room has 1 Double Hammer. The next has 1 Weapon Master. Our goal is to have to heal often and do a whole lot of dodging. Thus, I advocate using glyph unions to get the job done fast. Use a glyph union to definitely take down the Weapon Master. The Double Hammer gets pretty tolerable due to it's limited attacks after a while. No.107 - Weapon Master [107C] HP: 3000 Exp: 2000 Where it is found: Large Cavern. Description: Uses any manner of weapon as easily as a part of its own body. Weakness: Strike, lightning Resistance: Fire Drop: Gold Ore ** Attacks: 1) Stands back and periodically shoots needles 2) Throws a projectile that covers in many directions 3) Uses hammer to pound ground How to avoid: 1) There may be a certain way to stand/jump to avoid the needles but they don't do too much damage so I would just tank them if I were you. But make sure to always move toward the enemy, he does it forever if you let him. 2) Leaves a big arc for you to stand to avoid attack. 3) Just avoid it. Good Specific way to get their information: I will write the same method for the Double Hammers and the Weapon Masters. First, you need to equip ALL LUCK boosting items. I ended with a 64 luck in my game. Then, you need to equip Melio Macir on both X and Y. Make sure you have a good amount of hearts (I had 190).

Drop: None except medal No.112 - Rusalka [112C] HP: 2800 Exp: 2000 Where it is found: Somnus Reef Description: This aquatic demon compels the squalls to obedience. Weakness: Slash, lightning Resistance: Strike, Ice Drop: None (other than medal) No.113 - Goliath [113C] HP: 4200 Exp: 2500 Where it is found: Giant's Dwelling Description: The only thing more massive than he is the weight of his blasphemies. Weakness: Slash Resistance: Lightning Drop: None (other than medal) No.114 - Gravedorcus [114C] HP: 3600 Exp: 3000 Where it is found: Oblivion Ridge Description: A monster that tracks its prey through vibrations in the earth. Weakness: Strike and Ice Resistance: None. Drop: None (other than medal) No.115 - Albus [115C] HP: 4000 Exp: 0 Where it is found: Mystery Manor Description: Expert in the use of firearms. His gun is called "Agartha." Weakness: Slash, dark Resistance: None Drop: Acerbatus * (Can be absorbed during fight)(Medal like normal also) Good Specific way to get their information: Wait for him to use the glyph before resuming attacking, you don't want to miss out on this glyph, it's a one time only chance. No.116 - Barlowe [116C] HP: 4000 Exp: 0 Where it is found: Ecclesia Description: A pitiable madman, his body is now Dracula's vessel Weakness: Slash and light Resistance: Dark Drop: Globus * (Like Albus, can be absorbed during fight)(As usual, medal also) Good Specific way to get their information: Just absorb it like you did with Albus (hopefully!). This glyph can be obtained by killing Demon Lords also, but for the sake of 100%, let's stick to getting it from him during the fight. No.117 - Wallman [117C] HP: 9999 Exp: 3500 Where it is found: Dracula's Castle (I believe in the Bloody Tomes section) Description: Walls are no obstacle for this bizzare being. Weakness: Slash Resistance: None. Drop: Paries * (Absorbed during fight) Attacks: Throws bombs out that radiate in all four cardinal directions. How to avoid: You can stand at two places to avoid his attack: 1) On the bottom, crouching. 2) On the background block. Good Specific way to get their information: To beat this boss you must: 1) Jump onto one of the blocks in the background 2) Judge after he throws the bombs if they will hit you 3) Absorb his glyph before he can use it Note: It is no use attacking him physically, he will only drink from his potion, making him impossible to kill in that way. No.118 - Blackmore [118C] HP: 5000 Exp: 4300 Where it is found: Dracula's Castle. Real bottom portion of the map. Description: Sustains himself on the essence of his victims' souls. Weakness: Fire, light Resistance: Dark Drop: None other than medal. No.119 - Eligor [119C] HP: 3000 Exp: 4300 Where it is found: Dracula's Castle. On the middle right part of the map. Description: A giant demon knight summoned to protect the castle. Weakness: Strike, lightning Resistance: Fire Drop: None other than medal. Attacks: His attacks vary depending on where you stand. You can be at one of four places... A) Right in front of him. Near his sword B) Between his legs. C) Behind him. Near his tail. D) On top of him, near his head. Here are each place's attacks: A) 1) Slashes sword 2) Jumps up after you destroy the crystal on his kneecaps. Crashes down and can hurt you. B) 1) Front leg will come back hitting you. 2) He will shift positions, making it possible for you to run into him. C) 1) Tail will do a sweep D) 1) He will attempt to shake you off. 2) You can get hit pretty bad on your way down. 3) His tail will rear back up. There are some attacks that happen when you are in all places: 1) Cannon shooting at you. Shoots waves of projectiles. How to avoid: A) 1) Be at the edge near the wall 2) Quickly run under it (stopping at it's other leg that is still on the ground) B) 1) Crouch. 2) Move along with him. Make sure not to go too far. C) 1) Stay away near the left wall. D) I'm not really good at avoiding this attacks, he usually shakes me off :( Maybe that's why I didn't write too many Boss Help...all I can tell you is try to get as much damage to his head in as possible and do everything you can to stay on his back. No.120 - Death [120C] HP: 4444 Exp: 4444 Where it is found: Dracula's Castle, on the top right corner. Description: Dracula's confidant. Knows dark secrets hidden from all others. Weakness: Light Resistance: Dark Drop: None other than medal. No.121 - Dracula [121C] HP: 9999 Exp: 0 Where it is found: Dracula's Castle (surprise!), top middle part of the map. Description: The true master of the castle, and the prince of evil. Weakness: Light. Resistance: Dark. Drop: None other than medal. Attacks: I know only the first stage of his attacks. Then I'm clueless :p. 1) Opens cloak and fires fireball attacks that move horizontal. 2) Says "Inferno!" and opens cloak unleashing energy balls that move horizontal. 3) Shoots green lines up in the air that rain down. How to avoid: I can do this part almost perfect. 1) Equip a shield Glyph (Scutum) and crouch while using it. 2) You can get a few more attacks in before having to retreat. Wait until the first one is getting closer into proximity before equipping the Winged Boots (hopefully you have it - it's a quest item) and doing a double jump. Make sure that you jump at the peak of the first jump and you'll just barely avoid the fourth ball. 3) Wait a few seconds then equip the Moonwalkers and have fun backdashing away. If you are missing any of these items (ie. Winged Boots or Moonwalkers), do the following: To avoid 2) attack: Duck the first one. Then you can double jump the second one like normal. To avoid 3) attack: Wait until the green lines appear just on the top. Then, quickly move yourself a little right or left. With practice, you will avoid them at a good rate. _________________ |Conclusion [0D]| ----------------- Contact [1D] ------- Put this in just in case you had something to tell me.
