Griffon Soldier

The Griffon Soldier is an enemy encountered in Dark Chronicle. It makes its debut as the first monster fought in the entire game, during the first scenes of King Raybrandt's castle, in an attempt to assassinate Monica. The Griffon Soldier then reappears in Mount Gundor, of course having higher stats, but providing ABS and Gilda upon death.

Battle Tactics[]

Griffon Soldier concept art

Concept art.

This monster has similar traits to the Clown, with the two-slash close range attack and the fact that its attacks are easily blocked and countered. But unlike the Clown, the Griffon Soldier and its variations have no ranged attack. It is replaced with a second melee attack, a down-cutting slash with both blades, identical in damage to the other melee attack and blocked easily, and the Griffon Soldier also isn't as unpredictable as the Clown.

Although these attributes make this monster sound like less of a problem, do not be fooled; the Griffon Soldier has a resistance to ranged attacks, and will have about a 50% chance of negating all ranged attacks you throw at him. Attacks will not phase him as easily, only some attacks will do enough damage to affect him that way. Lastly, he has no weakness in terms of effective weapons; it may take you a long time just to defeat one.

Trivia[]

  • The Dark Alchemist variation in the Japanese version of Dark Chronicle (Dark Chronicle) is known as the "Darkness of the Clown", which hints at the Griffon Soldier's similarity to the Clown. Clowns in the Japanese version are called the "Clown Soldier", which is indeed bears resemblance to the Griffon Soldier.
