Boss Guides List


Attack Details Countermeasure
Leg Stomp Raises its leg before stomping on the ground, creating a damaging shockwave. Jump
Mouth Projectile Shoots multiple spherical projectiles from its mouth. Run away or run to the side.
Summon Shades (Second Phase) Summons sphere-shaped shades on the battlefield. Take out the shades before focusing attacks on Hook again. Be sure to keep Hook in your camera as it will still throw out its leg stomp and projectiles when you are distracted.
Multi Leg Stomp (Third Phase) Raises its legs before performing multiple ground stomps, creating consecutive damaging shockwaves. Jump.
Extended Mouth Projectile (Third Phase) Shoots multiple spherical projectiles from its mouth longer for a longer duration than the one it does during its first phase. Run away.


Hook only has a few attacks that you need to watch out for. When it raises its arms in the air, prepare to jump to avoid the shockwave that it will create. It will also shoot out magic orbs from its mouth which can be avoided by running away. Attack one of its arms using your weapon or use Dark Blast until the attack gauge appears and unload on it.

Hook will then climb up the side of the cliff and release sphere-shaped shades on the battlefield. Take out the shades first while still keeping attention on Hook to avoid its arm slam and mouth orbs. Attack its other arm using Dark Blast until the attack gauge appears again to destroy it.

When Hook comes back down, its attacks will become more powerful. Its mouth blast will release more orbs and will last longer than usual. The boss will now also be able to do multiple leg slams that send shockwaves out fast. Keep firing magic at the boss to deplete its health until the attack gauge appears on its head. Focus all attacks on it to defeat the boss.
