Stats Edit

Normal

Oversoul

Battle Edit

King Takouba's normal attacks inflict the Poison status when it is not Oversouled. It is weak to Fire-elemental attacks, such as Flametongue and Firaga.

At the beginning of battle, or once Blade Rondo has been performed, King Takouba's normal attack sequence begins, choosing a random step in the sequence: three normal attacks then Blade Rondo. This is only of help in determining average damage, as there is not much chance of predicting where the sequence will begin.

While Oversouled, it counterattacks with Frenzied Edge whenever it receives HP or MP damage, or is attacked by a character or monster. Its Oversoul attacks, Frenzied Edge and Rip to Shreds, deal fractional damage, both taking 1/4 of the target's HP, with the latter also inflicts Itchy status.

Oversouled attack sequence is random, with some of the outcomes being conditional on Poison status on the target. It has a 5/12 chance of a normal attack, 1/6 chance of Blade Rondo, 1/12 chance of Rip to Shreds, and 1/12 chance each of the status effect-causing spells: Blind, Silence, Confusion, and Bio (damage + Poison status). It checks Poison status on the characters to determine whether to cast its status ailments; if the character is poisoned, it will do a normal attack instead. As it only checks for Poison status, the player could cast Poison on the party, or leave it on once the King Takouba casts it, and thereafter avoid the other ailments.

Strategy Edit

Having Ribbons or status proof abilities help with dealing with it when Oversouled.

Creature Creator Edit

Fiend Tale Edit

One notable King Takouba was a legendary fiend whose apparent immortality resulted into becoming the sword of Lord Mi'ihen. After Mi'ihen died, King Takouba reverted to his original state and attempted to keep his bloodlust in check before Mi'ihen sealed his ally into his weapon form to await one who would inherit his will.

Etymology Edit

A takoba, also takuba or takouba, is the sword that is used across the western Sahel and among ethnic groups such as the Tuareg, the Hausa, the Fulani. It usually measures about one meter in length.
