It has a really long range. To dodge, go behind her and stay out of melee range, but don't stay too far away or she'll trap you in a corner.

  • Changing Hat Colours (below 70% HP, changes once every 30 seconds)
    • Purple Hat: Free-for-all, players can damage him at normal rate. Pierre will stay for 10 seconds before changing (5 seconds for Chaos Mode)

  • (Red Hat only) Blinks and disappears for a few seconds, then uses his umbrella to stab a targeted spot. The targeted spot is selected based on the location of everyone on the map at the time of disappearance. Solution: Just move away from your current spot when he disappears (but do not stop at another person's initial location).
  • (Chaos Mode only) When HP is below 30%, he will duplicate into Red and Blue Hats with the same HP. There will not be any more purple hats. Every 30 seconds, the 2 Pierres will swap their colours while retaining their respective HP. Both must be killed within 5 seconds of each other's death, else the dead one will revive with around 10 Billion HP.

Two person strategy (duo)[edit]

Teamwork here is essential, otherwise you will make the fight very hard.

  • When you see a glowing thing on the floor, move away from it, as it will drop a hat on you and prevent you from moving.
  • If caught in a falling hat, press left and right arrow keys quickly to break free.
  • Pierre changes into three colors: blue, purple, and red. Important: pay attention to this as you and your partner will get equipped with a random hat on your head. If your hat is the same color as Pierre's clothes, stop attacking him, otherwise every hit will heal him. Only the player with a different color hat can hurt him.
  • In his purple (normal) form he, his attacks are dodgeable.
  • In his red form, he will disappear and attack with a sneak attack. All you need to do is to move away from your original spot as he will move to 1 of the original spots of the party members.
  • In his blue form: he will spin and chase after people. If you get hit you will be sealed. You can hurt him while he's spinning, so you have to attack while on the move.
  • In chaos mode, when HP is below 30%, he will separate into Blue Pierre and Red Pierre (HP is the same for each pierre as before splitting). You must kill both pierres in the same time (5 seconds of window maximum between the deaths of 2 Pierres, else the dead Pierre will revive with about 20% HP). To achieve this, perform 1 of the following:
    • Get lucky with the hat colours and each person damage the different pierres respectively.
    • Everyone suicide and revive at the same time after the pierres exchanged their hats (members will have no hats upon revive, both pierres can be damaged by the same person).
    • Bind can also be used upon reviving to prevent the Red Pierre from disappearing to perform his attack (since you need to kill the 2 Pierres 1 after another within 5 seconds).
    • Before the HP even goes below 30%, wait for the hat colour to change, then if both members (or 1 member if he is sufficiently strong enough) are of different colour compared to Pierre, just kill Pierre all the way before he turns back to purple hat. Bind if needed.
