Final Boss King Olly - 1st Phase (Vellumental Boss)
King Olly 1st Battle Overall Tips
- Use the Super-Special Magic Circle
- Learn the weaknesses of each Vellumental
- Attack only with the 1000 Fold Arms
Super-Special Magic Circle
In this battle, Super-Special Magic Circles will appear. By stepping on them, you can transform into 4 different Vellumentals. Don't forget to activate the Magic Circle by stepping on the "ON" panel beforehand.
Learn Weaknesses Of Each Vellumental
King Olly transforms into 4 different Vellumental bosses. Learn each bosses' weakness to effectively beat them:
|Earth Vellumental||Weak to Ice Vellumental power|
|Water Vellumental||Weak to Earth Vellumental power, use to dodge the wave|
|Fire Vellumental||Weak to Water Vellumental power, use to wash away burning feathers|
|Ice Vellumental||Weak to Fire Vellumental power|
Attack Only By 1000 Fold Arms
Normal attacks with hammers and boots are ineffective. For example, attacking Earth Vellumental's tail with a hammer, which used to be the weakness of Earth Vellumental, will result in it being blocked by King Olly. Use the 1000 Fold Arms after you've struck its weakness with Vellumental power.
