Wood Walker enemy line

From Golden Sun Universe
Jump to: navigation, search

The Wood Walker is an enemy that is randomly battled in Golden Sun: The Lost Age. This monster, resembling a walking tree stump with a face and appendages, is noteworthy for being the only random monster of its design basis that is actually used in the game's battles; in the code of the game, two more variants with their own palette swaps, the Elder Wood and the Estre Wood, are unused as monsters, but both are featured as the visuals for Tamer class series Psynergy spells that share their names. This is similar to the Weird Nymph, an enemy that does not appear in a battle, but appears in a Psynergy.

Wood Walker[edit | edit source]

A Wood Walker (ウッドウォーカー) is a brown level 25 variant with green leaves. The Wood Walker is fought throughout the interior portion of Gaia Rock, and subsequently throughout Izumo Ruins, ideally before it is fought in Ankohl Ruins.

In Gaia Rock, the Wood Walker is not the fastest monster, but its offensive and defensive statistics are well-rounded and strong. Offensively, it is outperformed by the stronger and faster Gressil in Izumo Ruins, and in Ankohl Ruins it is outperformed in every statistic by the Minotaurus, as well as most of the other monsters in various statistical regards.

A Wood Walker is especially likely to be affected by Defense-lowering effects. Its statistics are as follows:

The Elder Wood (オールドウッド Old Wood) exists as a named but unused variant in the code in The Lost Age, where none of its statistics and abilities are coded beyond weak placeholder abilities. Had it been used, it would have appeared as a light green variant with autumn-colored leaves. However, the appearance and identity of this "unused" monster is featured as as part of the visual in the Elder Wood Psynergy that is available to the Beastkeeper class.
