Mimic enemy line (Dark Dawn)

From Golden Sun Universe
Jump to: navigation, search
The Dark Dawn design of the Mimic

In Golden Sun: Dark Dawn, there are several enemies named Mimic that are visually identical and individually battled at several different points. Unlike a typical enemy line where the monsters are randomly encountered and battled while exploring environments, every Mimic in the game can be seen in environments and may be optionally interacted with in order to start a battle with them. Mimics are seen as unopened treasure chests, and when one of these are attempted to be opened the chest will reveal itself to be more like a demonic jack-in-the-box automatically engage the player in a battle.

Mimics are always fairly tough individual enemies compared to the enemies that are randomly encountered when exploring an area, but are never anywhere near as threatening or durable as a boss battle. The various differently-leveled versions of the Mimic have similar sets of commands and elemental resistances, and are always guaranteed to drop some sort of valuable consumable item, including some items that permanently increase statistics.

Also see Mimic enemy line (Golden Sun) and Mimic enemy line (The Lost Age).

In Golden Sun: Dark Dawn[edit]

Six different levels of Mimic can be found in the game, four of which are within the last third of the game or so. They are ordered by when each one can be first battled, which appropriately orders them by level and overall battling statistics:
