Ball enemy line

From Golden Sun Universe
Jump to: navigation, search

The Anger Ball, Guardian Ball, Refresh Ball, Thunder Ball, Ghoul Ball, and Death Ball are enemies that can be fought in Golden Sun: The Lost Age and Golden Sun: Dark Dawn. This series of palette-swapped enemies resembling orbs surrounded by criss-crossing rings is unique because they only ever appear in one specific, scripted boss battle in each of the aforementioned games, where they are the personal summonable minions of the optional late-game boss Star Magician. Every ball has different abilities and a different set of resistances.

When the Star Magician is fought at the end of Treasure Isle in The Lost Age, the battle begins with him accompanied by one each of the four available ball varieties in this game - the Anger, Guardian, Thunder, and Refresh Balls. Whenever he is surrounded by less than four ball minions, either of his two moves for the turn may be the Enemy Ability Mystic Call, which adds a new Ball minion of any of the four varieties. When the Star Magician is fought at the end of the Lost Ship in Dark Dawn, the battle begins with him accompanied by four balls like before, including the two all-new varieties: the Ghoul and Death Balls, alongside Refresh and Guardian Balls. Like in the previous game, whenever he is surrounded by less than four ball minions, either of his two moves for the turn may be to use Mystic Call to add a new Ball minion of any of the six varieties available in this game.

In Golden Sun: The Lost Age[edit]

Anger Ball[edit]

Anger Ball.png

An Anger Ball is a red level 46 variant. It is capable of a powerful kamikaze attack that can deal enormous damage to the party, and it will not provide its EXP and coin rewards if not destroyed traditionally before using that move.

Guardian Ball[edit]

Guardian Ball.png

A Guardian Ball is a light green level 46 variant. It is prone to using a priority shielding move on the Star Magician itself called Guard Aura, which cuts all damage dealt to the Star Magician for the turn down to 10%, rendering it nearly invincible for the turn. The only way you can reliably damage the Star Magician while a Guardian Ball is out is to have a party member with an Agility rating even more enormous than the Guardian Ball to unleash either Ground or Petra - priority move-negating Djinn - on it, preventing it from using its move for the turn. Any Guardian Ball present needs to be destroyed before a concerted effort on the Star Magician itself can be made.

A Guardian Ball's statistics are as follows:

Name HP PP Attack Defense Agility Luck
Guardian Ball 520 43 317 127 292 33

Star venus.gif 152   Star mars.gif 100   Star mercury.gif 100   Star jupiter.gif 48   1 439 289 None N/A

A Guardian Ball uses these battle commands:

Description
Guard Aura 5/8
(62.5%)
-- Enemy ability that covers the Star Magician in a protective aura that lowers all damage done to it to practically nothing for that turn (10% of what it would be otherwise), and it is dealt at increased priority - it will always move before any other action that carries out in the turn, except for other priority moves used by other combatants with an even higher agility rating.
Defend 3/8
(37.5%)
-- Standard Defend command which halves all damage the user takes during this turn.

Refresh Ball[edit]

Refresh Ball.png

A Refresh Ball is a blue level 46 variant. It uses a copy of the Pure Ply Psynergy to restore 1000 HP to a damaged ally, so this should also be cleared away from the Star Magician's side of the field before the party's damage focuses on the boss itself.

A Refresh Ball's statistics are as follows:

Name HP PP Attack Defense Agility Luck
Refresh Ball 360 43 317 124 136 36
Elemental Resistances Turns Exp Coins Item Dropped Drop Rate
Star mercury.gif 175   Star venus.gif 100   Star jupiter.gif 100   Star mars.gif 25   1 448 278 None N/A

The Refresh Ball automatically regenerates 10 PP per turn.

Star mercury.gif 115 Power Psynergy costing 12 PP that restores around 1000 HP - effectively 1150 because of the Refresh Ball's Mercury elemental power rating - to the Star Magician. Identical to the Pure Ply Psynergy.
Cure Poison 1/8

-- Psynergy costing 2 PP that removes the Poison and Venom status conditions from an ally.
Restore 1/8

(12.5%)
-- Standard physical attack.

Thunder Ball[edit]

Thunder Ball.png

A Thunder Ball is a purple level 46 variant. It contributes several medium-powered Jupiter Psynergy attacks to the battle, but as it is not capable of anything more than that, and is the least durable ball as well, it is the most manageable ball to let remain on the Star Magician's side of the field.

A Thunder Ball's statistics are as follows:

Name HP PP Attack Defense Agility Luck
Thunder Ball 280 43 329 125 219 30
Elemental Resistances Turns Exp Coins Item Dropped Drop Rate
