A Banquet with Hisstocrat

One of Hisstocrat’s attacks involves boulders. When Hisstocrat comes out of hiding, it causes debris to fall. Avoid the boulders by moving away from the shadows.

When Hisstocrat summons the mob, they usually come with plates on their heads. You need to leap across the plates to take the Super Bells. Keep jumping to reach Hisstocrat’s head to hit him. Don’t stay on each plate for long or you’ll fall and take damage. Some of these have cracks which can shatter when stepped on. In addition, always check the ground to determine which snake behaves differently. Sometimes a snake won’t have a plate on its head, you can tell when this happens if the snake’s eyes show up before going to the surface. You need to keep hopping from one plate to the next until you land on the cross that’s placed on top of the different snake to hit it.

World 12

You’ll fight Hisstocrat one more time and this time he’s accompanied by another. The pair can call for fire balls to fall down from the sky. When one of the pair takes damage, the remaining becomes temporarily immobile. Use this window to attack it.
