Fury is the tenth Mars Djinni in Golden Sun: The Lost Age. The separate Djinn list viewable with the Select button from the status screen lists Fury and all other Mars Djinn introduced in The Lost Age before the seven Mars Djinn from the original Golden Sun, most likely because all the Djinn from the original game can be gotten all at once late in The Lost Age. However, the original Djinn are ordered before all of the Djinn introduced in The Lost Age in the Djinn inventory screen while they are allocated to characters. By this order, Fury is the seventeenth Mars Djinni in the GBA series, rather than the tenth.
Fury is the sixth Mars Djinni in Golden Sun: Dark Dawn.
When Fury is unleashed in battle, the user deals a Mars-based attack equal in power to the user's normal physical attack with an additional 70 damage points added to the result. Then, there is a chance that the enemy will be afflicted with the Haunt status condition.
In The Lost Age, Fury's unleash animation visually resembles the user summoning the glowing red image of a Mars Djinni right in front and above, and the Djinni projects a screen-filling flood of glowing skull-shapes through the enemy. In Dark Dawn, the 3D model of Fury is summoned, and it projects a far more sparse collection of smaller and more simple skull shapes that float toward and though the target more slowly. Then, there is a small fiery detonation at the target's position.
Elemental physical attacks such as Fury use the damage dealt by the attacker's standard physical attack as the base damage to be later modified. The total amount of damage dealt by a normal physical attack is half the difference between the attacker's Attack statistic and the target's Defense statistic, as this equation shows:
Shine's attack then takes this base damage value and uses it in the following equation:
To word this in prose, Fury takes the base damage of the user's normal physical attack, adds 70 to it, and then this result is modified by how much higher or lower the user's Mars Power is than the target's Mars Resistance. The difference between the user's Mars Power and the target's Mars Resistance is divided by 400, then 1 is added to this, resulting in what can be called the "elemental damage multiplier". This number is what Fury's damage is multiplied by.
For example, if an Adept with an Attack rating of 400 and a Mars Power of 150 unleashes Fury on a monster with a defense of 150 and a Mars Resistance of 100:
- damage = ((Attack - Defense) / 2 + 70) * (1 + (Power - Resistance) / 400)
- damage = ((400 - 150) / 2 + 70) * (1 + (150 - 100) / 400)
- damage = (250 / 2 + 70) * (1 + 50 / 400
- damage = (125 + 70) * (1 + 0.125)
- damage = 195 * 1.125
- damage = 219
Therefore, if Fury were to be unleashed under these circumstances it would deal approximately 219 points of damage.
Golden Sun: The Lost Age: Fury is found in the second, middle floor of Magma Rock, located to the far left of the lower horizontal hallway on an elevated platform. If you enter this hallway from the very tall black doorway to the right while the magma level is down, simply go left and climb up to where Fury is and battle it to attain it. See here for enemy statistics.
Golden Sun: Dark Dawn: Fury is found in Te Rya Village. Near the north exit of the town, a shivering, wool-less sheep blocks your way to Fury's spot. First, climb the tree at the southeast corner of the village, hop up, cast the Growth Psynergy on the plant to turn it into an ivy ladder, and follow it to the unlit torch to the right of the sheep. Cast the Fireball Psynergy on the torch to prompt the sheep to move to the right and stay near the lantern. Now retrace your steps back down, then go north through the path the sheep was blocking to pick Fury up. After Te Rya Village is visited, it can only be returned to by returning through Teppe Ruins north of it, and since that gets locked off along with the rest of the Morgal region late in the game when the Sailing Ship is obtained, Fury can be permanently missed by that point in the game.
General: Fury has one of the highest set damage bonuses of offensive Mars Djinn. Its additional 70 damage can be useful both for a low-attack Adept and a warrior that is trying to fell an enemy with a Mars Djinni so that it drops increased rewards. Haunt is hardly a beneficial effect at all because it is not often it damages an enemy in a normal random battle, and bosses have too high a Luck rating to be affected by such a status condition. Depending on the game, it is about as good as offensive Mars Djinn get either by the endgame or somewhere around the midgame.
Golden Sun: The Lost Age: Fury is the Mars Djinni with the highest added damage value in the GBA series, and thus the most inherently damaging Mars Djinni (there are no Mars Djinn with damage multipliers). The offensive Mars Djinn that basically compare with it in usefulness terms are the Mars Djinn Scorch and Char, Djinn that add only 50 bonus damage but have the far more preferable secondary effect Stun. There is also Core, which while only adding 40 bonus damage may ignore half of the target's defense, which sharply increases damage late in the game. Fury, nonetheless, is perhaps the best offensive Mars Djinni because it can be relied on to deal an extra 70 damage whenever it is used.
Golden Sun: Dark Dawn: Fury has much more opportunity to be great in this game than the last because it is found roughly at the start of the second third of the game. However, it is "sandwiched between" other offensive Djinn that have comparable power levels, somewhat. The fifth Mars Djinni Lava, found in Kaocho, has only 10 less of a set damage bonus, but its side effect of lowering the target's Defense rating by 25% is far more relevant than Fury's Haunt infliction. It makes Lava roughly equal to Fury, perhaps even better. This is not to mention that the Mercury Djinni Serac can also have been gotten beforehand, and it has 70 set bonus damage like Fury but a chance to instantly down the target. While Fury's 70 damage bonus is still very impressive when crossing into the Morgal region, Djinn of other elements that deal an astonishing 80 set bonus damage, Gears on the overworld map and Spout in early Belinsk Ruins, can be gotten quickly once Morgal is first stepped into. In terms of Mars Djinn, Fury will ultimately be obsoleted much later, once Eoleo joins the party and brings along the Mars Djinni Chili. It has 80 set damage bonus and a chance to Stun.
Fury's name may be derived from the phrase "flaming fury". Even if it isn't, words like fury, rage, and anger are associated with heat, hence phrases like "hot-headed" to mean short-tempered or "fiery" to describe spirited and sometimes easily-provoked people. Likewise, souls are often depicted as floating balls of flame.
