King Penguin (Etrian Odyssey III) Edit
King Penguin is a boss of a sea quest.
The King Penguin is a weird boss. At the start of the battle, it will have a lot of turns where it does nothing. Instead, a message of it being idle is shown instead. It either doesn't notice you or he doesn't bother you hitting it.
Once you have hit it a few rounds, it will start summoning Penguins, who will try to heal up the King Penguin again. Kill the Penguins before you start hitting the King again.
At some point, the King Penguin seems to take you more seriously. It will start using Violent Grudge, which curses your entire party. This can be dangerous, since it is weak to everything and therefore takes more damage than other enemies.
It also starts using Withstand, waiting for your attacks. The logic of this attack is simple: The more damage you pump into it while it withstands, the more damage you will take when it explodes. It will always Explode at the end of the second turn after using Withstand.
- Withstand (Uses ???): Absorbs damage to power up the Explode skills that is used in later turns.
- Violent Grudge (Uses ???): Has a chance to curse the entire party.
- Explode (Uses ???): Deals damage depending on how much damage you dealt to the user while he was using Withstand.
Conditional Drop Edit
- To obtain the Elastic Body, you have to kill the King Penguin in five turns or less.
