How to Beat Chuchu


Regular Chuchu

How to Beat Chuchu
If you slash with a sword, it will become smaller and smaller, and if you slash it when it is the smallest, you can defeat it.

Chuchus are small, slimy enemies that are easily beatable by a sword. Chuchus can merge and become bigger, increasing the number of sword attacks needed to defeat each merged Chuchus.

There are two variants: Fire Chuchus, and Electric Chuchus.

Fire Chuchu Variant

Chuchu - fire variant
Fire Chuchus will burn you in contact. Like all fire-type enemies, you can roll yourself to remove the flames.

Electric Chuchu Variant

Chuchu - electric variant
Electric Chuchus will electrocute you in contact when they are charged. Like all electric-type enemies, do not attack them in this state.

Stop Chuchu Splits and Merges

Chuchu - split
Bigger Chuchus will split when they are hit by an attack, but they will try to merge again. Avoid this by constantly swinging your sword. For Electric Chuchus, attack in-between their charged-state.

Hang on Ceilings

Chuchu - hang on ceilings
Sometimes, Chuchus can hang on cavern ceilings and fall while you're near it. Watch out and try not to be suprised from its assault.
