The Gressil and Little Death are enemies that are randomly battled in Golden Sun: The Lost Age. These monsters, resembling flying demon-like animals without legs and holding a scythe in each hand, are palette swamps of each other that have differing levels of power and defense and are fought in different locations in the game.

In Golden Sun: The Lost Age[edit]

Gressil[edit]

Gressil.png

A Gressil is a blue level 26 variant with violet wings. In The Lost Age, it is fought only throughout Izumo Ruins, an optional area; therefore, some players might miss this monster altogether.

The Gressil is both quite a bit weaker and less sturdy than the monsters it is fought alongside, but it has the highest Agility rating by quite a large margin. Its unique drop, the Otafuku Mask, is, however, more of a novelty than a desirable piece of rare equipment, so whether you want to bother abusing the Random Number Generator to get it is up to you.

A Gressil's statistics are as follows:

Name HP PP Attack Defense Agility Luck
Gressil 175 30 243 70 145 30
Elemental Resistances Turns Exp Coins Item Dropped Drop Rate

Little Death[edit]

A Little Death is a reddish level 33 variant with violet wings. In The Lost Age, it is fought only throughout Magma Rock.

The Little Death is outperformed in each category by the Wise Gryphon, and it is rare for it to use Condemn and have it actually hit before you fell it. Like with the Gressil, its unique drop, the Hiotoko Mask, is more of a novelty than a desirable piece of rare equipment, so whether you want to bother abusing the Random Number Generator to get it is up to you.

A Little Death's statistics are as follows:

Name HP PP Attack Defense Agility Luck
Little Death 222 40 335 108 191 30
Elemental Resistances Turns Exp Coins Item Dropped Drop Rate

Mini-Death[edit]

Like with all other enemy lines introduced in The Lost Age that seem to have only two variants, a third palette-swapped variant to this line exists in the code of the game cart and was even given its own name, but has none of its statistics and abilities coded beyond weak placeholder abilities. Had it been used, it would have appeared as a pale light green variant with dark turquoise wings named Mini-Death.
