, mistranslated as Fire Puppet
in The Lost Age
, is a support Venus Psynergy
found in Golden Sun: The Lost Age
and Golden Sun: Dark Dawn
. It can be learned by an Adept
who has equipped the Tomegathericon
, thus becoming a member of the Dark Mage class series
, or by Himi
in her exclusive Curse Mage class series
. Fear Puppet is learned at level 20, costs 7 PP
and has a range of three. When used it has a chance of stunning
a foe. Visually, it resembles the character taking a downed pose while a ghostly skull moves forward to terrorize the opponents.
The main advantage of this spell is that it is one of only two abilities, the other being Azul, capable of stunning multiple targets. The main drawback is the fact the attack causes no damage while there are many damaging attacks that can stun a single target. Thus Fear Puppet may prove useful on occasion but it is otherwise preferable to use damaging attacks instead.
