If you’re moving from Klonoa: Door to Phantomile to Klonoa 2: Lunatea’s Veil, then you’re going to need to know how to beat Folgaran the Armor Beast in Klonoa Phantasy Reverie Series!
Also, hats off to the Sky Pirates for creating such an awesome name.
Those of you who enjoyed the first Klonoa game but want a little more of a challenge will be very pleased to get their teeth stuck into the second title. If anything, Lunatea’s Veil is a supercharged version of the first game, with more tricksy elements up its sleeve to try and catch you out.
Put it this way, Folgaran makes Rongo Lango look like a child’s drawing.
So, without further ado, let’s figure out how to thwart this mechanical menace once and for all!
*WARNING* – The following article is going to give instructions on how to defeat the first boss in Klonoa 2: Lunatea’s Veil, which means there’s going to be some plot spoilers. If you don’t want to ruin the fun for yourself, then look away now and don’t carry on reading. Check out our article on the best PS1 games to take your mind somewhere else!
How To Beat Folgaran The Armor Beast In Klonoa 2: Lunatea’s Veil
Unlike the first Klonoa title where players come across a boss in the second vision after moving across the map, there are a few stops to visit on the new ‘Donkey Kong Country-esque’ map before you come into contact with a boss.
Enter the Sky Pirates, the newest meddlesome duo to try and put a spanner in the works. After a brief introduction, they leave Folgaran the Armor Beast to do the talking, and the only language it understands is destruction.
To start with, Folgaran spins around and bobs about the place. If you’ve played the first Klonoa game, then you’ll know all about the method of throwing enemies at points on bosses in order to take their health down.
See that massive X on the back of its tail? X marks the spot, and that’s the spot where you’re going to need to throw enemies towards.
As Folgaran moves up and down, players will need to time their shots, sometimes performing a single jump and throwing their enemy at the orange X. Folgaran will spin wildly when you hit it, but just throw another enemy at it to stop it mid spin.
We all know how this goes, right? Four hits and the boss is down, yeah?
Not this time!
Beating Folgaran The Armor Beast – Part 2
Once you’ve hit Folgaran four times, there’s a little cutscene where, like I did, you assume that it’s all over. The beast only goes and gets spinning spikes on laser arms though, doesn’t it!
Yes, instead of four strikes and you’re out, Folgaran comes back for another four. It’s arms spin faster and faster, leaving you with multiple obstacles to tackle.
Not only do you need to jump over the spinning spike arms, but there’s also rotating spikes and floating enemies to dodge out of the way of.
While watching everything else, repeat the tried and tested formula for catching an enemy and throwing it at Folgaran’s tail. You’ll need to time when you get your enemies as you’ll need to flutter over the spinning hands, especially when they’re spinning slowly in the first couple of stages.
After two hits, they start to speed up. Keep your eyes on the prize and don’t let your health deplete, otherwise you’ll have to start again.
And that’s a wrap!
