Note that dungeon-specific enemies are not covered, as they have very simple AI and usually die in one hit.

Health values are based on the basic button 1 button attack, which is the weakest. Other attacks deal more damage.

A special note about Battle Mode: for some reason you cannot jump over your enemies. If you do manage to get past them they zip backwards utnil you are in front of them again. There is no way to get around this.

Barbarian[edit]

Health: 2 bars
Attack: ½ bar
Drops: 1 vase

The Barbarian is the simplest foe. His only attack is a swipe. He goes down in a couple of hits, and is slow enough that he shouldn't be much of a bother.

Amazon[edit]

Health: 1½ bars
Swipe: 1 bar
Jump: ???
Drops: 1 or 2 vases

The Amazon is more of a worry. She has a jump attack, which deals slightly more damage.

Skeleton[edit]

Health: 4 bars
Swipe: 1 bar
Jump: ???
Thrust: ???
Drops: 2 vases

Skeletons are rare during the first part of the game but become more frequent after that. Just like their Golden Axe counterparts they have a downward thrust in addition to the normal jump attack, where they bring their weapon down and use the weight of their falling body to thrust it home. This is their most damaging attack.

Knight[edit]

Health: ???
Swipe: ???
Drops: ? vase(s)

The knight is slow but fairly powerful. If you attack at once rather than letting him come to you you should have room to work in.

Neo Barbarian[edit]

Much the same as the Barbarian. Has more health and attacks do more damage.

Neo Amazon[edit]

Much the same as the Knight. Has more health and attacks do more damage.

Bad Brother[edit]

Health: ???
Swipe: ???
Drops: ? vase(s)

The Bad Brothers (called Bad Bra. in the game) are very powerful. You need to close in right away and use your most powerful attacks, retreating when appropriate, otherwise you'll run out of room to fight them in.

Death Adder[edit]

Health: ???
Swipe: ???
Punch: ???
Drops: ? vase(s)

Death Adder isn't the final boss of this game but is instead a high-level enemy that is found as you come nearer to his castle. In addition to a standard swipe attack he can also throw thunder punches. This is the best time to attack him: when he kneels to throw a thunder punch jump over it and use your most powerful attack. Repeat this and you should beat him.
