Boss List


  • Unlike other bosses, this fight requires you to defeat enemies that are constantly running away from you. Since they are difficult to chase, you’ll need to know the characteristics of each monkey and use the terrain in order to catch them.
  • Monkeys will leave behind footprints whenever they move. The footprints’ color indicates which monkey has moved. The Seeing Monkey leaves purple footprints, the Listening Monkey leaves green, and the Speaking Monkey leaves red prints.

  • When it detects you, the Speaking Monkey will summon an illusion before running away. Since the Speaking Monkey is slower than the other monkeys, you will be able to catch it by using the shortcut.
