Battle[]

NES version[]

Kraken has access to Fire2, Ice2, and Bolt2, which deal very high damage to the party (maximum above 700). The party should use strong physical attacks or high-level magic.

Remake version[]

Kraken can attack twice in a row with either a strong physical attack, Blizzara on one or all party members, or Blind on one or all party members.

It is recommended to have a Scholar use Zeus's Wrath or Heavenly Wrath items while a Red or Black Mage constantly uses Thundara. If the player picked up the Blizzaga spell earlier in the cave, they should use it as well. One party member should constantly cast Cura/Cure.

Etymology[]

The Kraken were giant sea monsters, found in Norse and Icelandic mythology. Often depicted as gigantic octopuses or squids, they were thought to rise up from the deeps, grappling and then sinking small ships. Other myths held that the greatest dangers from the Kraken were the whirlpools left behind from their descent back into the deeps.
