Appearance[ | ]

The Trigenbu is a green tortoise with a brown, rocky shell that has some corals embedded in its cracks. It crawls around peacefully until provoked, where it starts standing on two legs, pulls out a bone trident and moves really fast by spinning inside of its shell.

Combat[ | ]

When it glows purple, it dashes towards the player and swings its Shock-imbued trident, which can be countered. When it glows blue, it instead jumps into the air, leaving a big icicle behind, and attempts to fall on top of the player and stab them with its Cold-imbued trident that has a small area of effect and leaves the Trigenbu vulnerable to breaking only if the attack isn’t successful. The player can predict the moment of its landing by looking at the red crosshair around themselves that gets smaller the closer the enemy is to falling.

Strategies[ | ]

Countering its Shock trident is a feasible option, but you can always rather to play safe and dodge out of the way, since you will get a chance to break it after it uses its Cold trident, anyways. It isn’t resistant to Balls; therefore, a quick use of Elven Orb or Flare Burn! will take it down quite easily.
