Strategy[edit | edit source]
Rangda aren't a danger until later in the battle, so the best way to deal with these Spooks is to be quick and efficient. The player should deal with the Rangda first even if it has just been spawned. Its low health and Stagger point mean this shouldn't be a problem.

Etymology[edit | edit source]
Rangda is the demon queen of the Leyaks, according to traditional Balinese mythology. Terrifying to behold, the child-eating Rangda leads an army of evil witches against the leader of the forces of good—Barong. Rangda is important in Balinese culture, and performances depicting her struggles with Barong or with Airlangga in that tale are popular tourist attractions as well as tradition. She is depicted as a mostly nude old woman, with long and unkempt hair, pendulous breasts, and claws. Her face is traditionally a horrifying fanged and large-eyed mask, with a long, protruding tongue.
