Orc enemy line

From Golden Sun Universe
Jump to: navigation, search

The Orc, Orc Captain and Orc Lord are enemies that are randomly battled in Golden Sun. These monsters, resembling muscular pig-like humanoids armed with scimitars, are palette swaps of each other that have differing levels of power and defense and are fought in different locations in the game.

In Golden Sun[edit]

Orc[edit]

An Orc (オーク) is a level 14 variant with pink skin and blue pants. Orcs are fought throughout Lamakan Desert.

Orcs are more or less the statistical standouts among the random monsters fought in its area, not counting the much higher Agility of the Fighter Bee and the much stronger but scripted and independently fought Ant Lion.

An Orc's statistics are as follows:

Name HP PP Attack Defense Agility Luck
Orc 148 0 156 41 54 3
Elemental Resistances Turns Exp Coins Item Dropped Drop Rate
Star venus.gif 100   Star mercury.gif 72   Star mars.gif 72   Star jupiter.gif 48 1 68 113 Nut.gif Nut 1/32

An Orc can use these battle commands:

Star venus.gif 100 Power Enemy ability that briefly cloaks the user in a fiery aura. It briefly restores the user's HP by roughly 40.


Orc Captain[edit]

An Orc Captain (ハイオーク High Orc) is a level 21 variant with light orange skin and green pants. Orc Captains are fought in the overworld region of Gondowan encompassing Gondowan Passage and Lalivero, as well as throughout Suhalla Desert.

The Orc Captain's abilities, since they do not include enhanced damage or area-of-effect damage, can be said to actually detract from its ability to battle using just its attack, so it is only an average monster among the monsters fought in Gondowan and Suhalla Desert.

An Orc Captain's statistics are as follows:

Name HP PP Attack Defense Agility Luck
Orc Captain 231 0 248 69 90 4
Elemental Resistances Turns Exp Coins Item Dropped Drop Rate
Star venus.gif 100   Star mercury.gif 72   Star mars.gif 72   Star jupiter.gif 48 1 125 142 Smoke Bomb.gif Smoke Bomb 1/16

An Orc Captain uses these battle commands:

Description
Attack 5/8
(62.5%)
-- Standard physical attack.
Stand Ready 2/8
(25%)
-- Enemy ability that is identical to the standard Defend command which halves all damage the user takes during this turn.
Spasm 1/8
(12.5%)
Star venus.gif 100 Power Enemy ability that briefly cloaks the user in a fiery aura. It briefly restores the user's HP by roughly 40.

In addition to its regular battle commands, an Orc Captain can also use the following consumable items:

Smoke Bomb.gif 1 Smoke Bomb: An item that attempts to inflict Delusion to a targeted Adept.
Elixir.gif 1 Elixir: An item that cures the user or its ally of any of the Sleep, Stun, Delusion, Psynergy Seal, and Death Curse status conditions, if any of these conditions are present.


Orc Lord[edit]

An Orc Lord (オークロード) is a slightly larger level 25 variant with light purple skin and red pants. Orc Lords can be fought throughout the Road to Babi Lighthouse and the Tunnel Ruins.

Much like the Orc Captain, the Orc Lord is not much of a threat both ability-wise and statistically, among the other monsters it is fought alongside. What makes it notable, however, is its drop: It is the only monster in either GBA game that randomly drops Lucky Medals, making it the only technically infinite source of them, but it appears only in the first game. It only drops Lucky Medals as rarely as other monsters drop rare equipment, so abusing the Random Number Generator is advised. Players wanting to collect as much of the second game's equipment as possible may want to use the RNG to amass spare Lucky Medals, and then have them in the party's inventory for when data is transferred to The Lost Age.

An Orc Lord's statistics are as follows:

Name HP PP Attack Defense Agility Luck
Orc Lord 278 18 302 98 70 3
Elemental Resistances Turns Exp Coins Item Dropped Drop Rate
Star venus.gif 127   Star mercury.gif 100   Star mars.gif 100   Star jupiter.gif 72 1 260 198 Lucky Medal.gif Lucky Medal 1/128

Cultural References[edit]

Orcs are a popular creature in the fantasy genre, particularly in the stories written by the late English writer John Ronald Reuel Tolkien (best known for titles such as The Lord of the Rings, which also features Orcs). They're often described as tough, warlike humanoid creatures with faces that resemble a cross between a pig and a primate.
