Aside from its unique facial markings, the mushussu is nearly identical to the marduk in both physicality and ability. However, while marduks tend to like in schools in the jungle, a mushussu will often maintain a completely solitary existence for its entire lifespan.
Mushussus start the battle asleep and awake when attacked. They blow bubbles of hot steam that slowly advance on the player. After being awoken when in low health they become enraged and start rampaging around the area while continuously blowing bubbles. There is a Breaksight strike chance after their steam attack. When enraged, scoring a Breaksight strike stuns them momentarily.
In the Tower of Agito, it is ideal to position on the middle spawn so that all three spawns can be hit by Fire BOM-II. A damage and channel enhance-maxed Fire BOM-II (also ideally with Mutsuki's BOM magic +10 request complete) that is spammed will kill the Mushussus within two seconds of them spawning. Channelling to Firaga BOM-II is unnecessary and much less effective. Having three to four Fire BOM-II up will ensure they die the moment they spawn.
