Auntie Medusa

The Auntie Medusa is a monster that can be found in Dark Cloud (known as Auntie Medu) and Dark Chronicle. Loosely based off Medusa from Greek mythology, it has snakes for hair and a serpent's tail. It also has matching gloves, bra, and wields some sort of trident.

Battle Tactics[]

Dark Cloud[]

Auntie Medu can easily be identified by a loud dragging sound it makes. It has two attacks, one is a ball of mist that damages and freezes the player, the other is a close range stab with its trident. Auntie Medu seldom blocks projectile attacks, but is more diligent with melee attacks. Goro's long startup is likely to be met with a quick stab so Toan or Ungaga is best for fighting Auntie Medu in melee range.

Dark Cloud 2[]

The two main attacks of an Auntie Medusa and its variations do not change between games. The first attack, a breath style attack, will petrify the player and cause damage, and the second attack is a close stab with its trident. The breath attack can be blocked to avoid any damage. In addition, this attack can be bounced back at her using a charged melee weapon, causing petrification to the Auntie Medusa. The trident attack is slower and close range and is not difficult to block. Using the Ridepod with the Samurai Arms makes the Auntie Medusa a non-threat, as the Ridepod is immune to petrification.


  • Auntie Medusa is called "Auntie Medu" in Dark Cloud because it's full name is too big to fit as a name tag in Dark Cloud. Many enemy names in Dark Cloud are even spaced together, etc. so they don't overlap the nametag bar. For example, Evil bat is called "Evilbat", Statue Dog is called "Statue Dog" and Master Utan is called "Masterutan" for example.
