Volvidon Characteristics

Armored Shell Attacks

Armored Shell Attacks.png

The carapace or outer shell of a Volvidon is very tough and acts as the armor of the monster and the primary mode of movement. If challenged, it will curl up into a ball and attack by barreling towards you at high speeds.

Lengthy Tongue Reach

The Volvidon has quite a reach with its tongue, extending to great lengths to either grab a target or flick them with it.

Paralyzing Attacks

The spit of the Volvidon induces paralysis and coats the target in a foul odor, which is a status effect called Stench. If you are stinky, you cannot use consumables unless you clear this status effect with a Deodorant.

Volvidon Attack Patterns

Tongue Flick

In previous works, Volvidon's tongue flicks can reach very long distances, thus making them difficult to dodge. It seems to be a similar case here so close-ranged combat is ideal when facing this monster.

Stink Cloud

An added challenge to facing a Volvidon is its close-range defense, a stink cloud. This stinky cloud also covers you in the Stench status effect which negates you from using consumables and stops you from recovering. Pack a deodorant if you're facing this monster.
