Tzitzi-Ya-Ku - Tips & Tricks

Stay Out of the Flash Attack

Stay Away From the Flash Attack

The Tzitzi-Ya-Ku has a flash attack that has a long and wide range. However, since it has a long telegraph, you will have enough time to get behind the Tzitzi-Ya-Ku before it unleashes the flash attack!

Focus On The Head

Focus On The Head

The Tzitzi-Ya-Ku's only weak spot is its head. Focus your attacks on the monster's head in order to immediately break it. Once the Tzitzi-Ya-Ku's head is broken, it will not be able to do its flash attack!

Utilize The Traps In Area 4

Utilize The Traps In Area 4

Area 4 has numerous platform traps that will lock the Tzitzi-Ya-Ku in place for a brief amount of time. Look for the bouncy platforms in area 4, and stagger the Tzitzi-Ya-Ku on top of them to trap it!

Leaping AttackJumps forward, and uses its hindlegs to kick at whatever is in front. This attack has a long range but it can be avoided by dodging to the side.
Flash AttackAttack that stuns anything that is within the Tzitzi-Ya-Ku's line of sight. It has a long telegraph so you can get behind the Tzitzi-Ya-Ku before it flashes.

Multiple Scratch Attacks Can Be Done
