Rat Soldier enemy line

From Golden Sun Universe
Jump to: navigation, search
A Rat Soldier as they appear in Dark Dawn.

The Rat Soldier, Rat Fighter, and Rat Warrior are enemies that are randomly battled throughout each game in the Golden Sun series. Like most enemy lines, they are palette swaps of each other that have differing levels of power and defense and are fought in different locations in the games. They resemble humanoid rats half the size of people, but while they are equipped with small spears and shields in the GBA games, in Dark Dawn they now wear hoods and attack with a kunai-shaped dagger.

Rat Soldier[edit]

Rat Soldier.png

A Rat Soldier is a brown variant with a blue shield, and it is level 6 in Golden Sun and level 8 in The Lost Age. In Golden Sun, they are first fought at the overworld region of Angara around Bilibin and Kolima, and subsequently throughout Kolima Forest and Tret Tree. In The Lost Age, they are fought on Dehkan Plateau and Madra Catacombs.

In Golden Sun, Rat Soldiers are easily the statistically highest enemies you contend with as soon as you step out of Goma Cave into the overworld region nearby the town of Bilibin, but quickly get outclassed by enemies such as the Troll and Creeper. In The Lost Age, it is not quite as noteworthy as the Mini-Goblin from the start.

Rat Fighter[edit]

Rat Fighter.png

A Rat Fighter is a dark purple level 13 variant with a green shield. In Golden Sun, they are fought throughout Altin Peak and Lamakan Desert.

In Altin Peak, while the Ape has the much higher durability, the Rat Fighter's statistics are strong everywhere else, having the second highest HP and the highest Attack and Defense ratings of the monsters fought in that area, with its Agility practically as high as the Dirge.

A Rat Fighter's statistics are as follows:

Name HP PP Attack Defense Agility Luck
Rat Fighter 143 0 146 39 58 3

Star mercury.gif 100   Star venus.gif 72   Star jupiter.gif 72   Star mars.gif 48 1 63 83 Smoke Bomb.gif Smoke Bomb 1/32

A Rat Fighter's list of battle commands is as follows:

Command Chance
to use
Elem. Stats

Description
Attack 5/8
(62.5%)
-- Standard physical attack.
Slice 2/8
(25%)
Star jupiter.gif 85 Power Enemy ability that deals a Jupiter-aligned attack equal to the user's normal physical attack multiplied by 0.9, and there is a chance that it will do double the damage instead.
Flee 1/8
(12.5%)
-- Standard Flee command that has a chance to remove the user from the battle without giving the party EXP and Coin rewards.

In addition to its regular battle commands, the Rat Fighter can also use the following consumable items:

Smoke Bomb.gif 1 Smoke Bomb: An item that attempts to inflict Delusion to a targeted Adept.

However, an unexplained glitch is present in Golden Sun that prevents the Rat Fighter from ever using Slice. It will use its Smoke Bomb in place of its first attempt to use Flee or Slice, which is what the game code dictates, but every time it attempts to use Slice afterwards, it will instead execute the Standard Defend command to halve all damage it would take for the turn. It is still able to attempt to Flee as normal. The Rat Warrior has the exact same glitch, owing in part to having the exact same battle command setup.


Rat Warrior[edit]

Rat Warrior.png

A Rat Warrior is a violet red level 20 variant with a turquoise shield. They are ideally first fought throughout Gondowan Cave, then in the underground of the optional Lunpa Fortress, before being fought in the overworld region of Gondowan that extends between Gondowan Passage and Lalivero.

In Gondowan Cave, the Dirty Ape outperforms it in every area, and since it may use its turn defending or attempting to flee, it is not so damaging as a random monster. The same goes for its appearance alongside the Dirty Ape in the Gondowan overworld. In Lunpa Fortress, it is roughly statistically equal to the Vile Dirge and quite a lot faster than the Kobold.
