I couldn't finish 'em. Looks like this's gonna get complicated.
Stats[edit | edit source]
Fiend Arena Oversoul
Battle[edit | edit source]
Regular version[edit | edit source]
White Fang can instantly kill a party member with its Killer Fang attack, though defeating it should be no problem. In Oversoul, it is best to quickly kill it as it has access to Quadruple Attack. Any strong physical attack will do the trick, as will Instant Death and Petrify attacks.
Fiend Arena version[edit | edit source]
The Fiend Arena version (only in the International and HD Remaster versions of the game) has ten times as much HP (five when comparing Oversoul forms) and is immune to Ice.
Both Normal and Oversoul forms will counter any damaging attacks with Delay Shock. Both have a one in three chance of using Quick Attack on the team member whose current HP is the lowest; a one in six chance of using Killer Fang, and a one in six chance of using Strength Up up to 5 times, after which that probability is assigned to Quick Attack on the low HP character, for a total of 1/2 chance.
Where the Normal has a one in six chance of using Mind Fang on the character with highest MP, the Oversoul instead will use Critical Attack on the lowest-HP character. Both will use Stop Attack at a one in six chance, but the Oversoul will use it on the character with the lowest HP.
Fiend Tale[edit | edit source]
- Have I told you the sad tale of how my brother is frozen solid in a block of ice? I don't even know if he's dead or alive... But no, there's no way he kicked the bucket. We were born and raised in Gagazet - ice is just a plaything to us! I'll never forget that cursed night! I know he's waiting for me. Let me get stronger so I can rescue him!
- My brother and I grew up in the snowy peaks of Gagazet. Its craggy precipices and deep snow banks made it inhospitable for all but the toughest of creatures. I remember frigid wintry nights when we would huddle in a cave, waiting for a blizzard to let up. We were always together, my brother and I.
- Five years ago, at the age of twenty, I engaged in my rite of adulthood. We go alone to the mountain's crest and bathe in the morning sunlight. That is how we become adults. This holy ritual we dedicate to the fayth must be done alone. I followed this rule as I set out on my journey.
- As I made my way to the summit in the dead of night, the snowstorm grew even fiercer. This was the first time I had ever faced such biting cold. My legs could barely move and I began to drift off... And that's when my brother came to me. He had been following me. We quickly huddled to endure the cold. And then morning came. As I opened my eyes, I saw that my brother had been completely encased in ice. He was not yet of age. Surely it was the divine punishment of the fayth for breaking our sacred ritual. No matter what I did, the ice did not melt. But I know in my heart that my brother is still alive in there. Five years have passed, and my brother would now be twenty. I plan to take on the rite once more, with him.
In the Fiend Tale ending, the White Fang returned to the mountain and freed his brother before helping him with his own rite of passage into adulthood. After completing this Fiend Tale's ending, the Silver Brothers team becomes available to fight in the Fiend Arena.
Etymology[edit | edit source]
White Fang is a novel by American author Jack London and the name of the book's eponymous character, a wild wolfdog. The story takes place in Yukon Territory, Canada, during the 1890s Klondike Gold Rush and details White Fang's journey to domestication. It is a companion novel (and a thematic mirror) to London's best-known work, The Call of the Wild, which is about a domesticated dog embracing his wild ancestry to survive and thrive in the wild.
