King Olly - Boss Fight Tips
King Olly - Phase 1
Turn On & Use Special Vellumental Circle
Prioritize turning on the Special Vellumental magic circles since this is key to beating Olly in this phase. Using the circle, choose the weakness of Olly's Vellumental form to create an opportunity for attack!
King Olly Vellumental Weaknesses
|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 Using 1000-Fold Arms
After you've hit King Olly with his weakness, attack next with the 1000-Fold Arms. You need to do this in the next turn after using the Special Vellumental Circle.
Using Normal Attacks Do Not Work
Don't bother going for the same strategy you used with the Vellumentals to King Olly. For example, King Olly will brush off your attack to his tail and limbs when he's in the Earth Vellumental form.
King Olly - Phase 2
Use The Magic Circle Behind Bowser
Bowser will need help to deal with Olly in his Origami form. Get behind him and use the 1000-Fold Arms circle to create shockwaves to help Bowser.
