Succubus from the Golden Sun Universe video games
|First appearance||Golden Sun|
|First game||Golden Sun|
|Sub-Boss character on Crossbone Isle|
Succubus is a species of monster found in Golden Sun and Golden Sun: The Lost Age. These monsters resemble attractive female humans with long hair and have differing levels of power and defense. They have blue hair, a turquoise dress and violet boots. They are associated with the Mercury element.
The Succubus is a blue-haired variant with a turquoise dress and violet boots. Statistically, this monster has 529 HP, 56 PP, 195 Attack, 49 Defense, 101 Agility, and 12 Luck. In terms of resistance, it has a Mercury Resistance rating of 127, Venus and Jupiter Resistance ratings of 100 each, and a Mars Resistance rating of 72, and in regards to its abilities it uses its available Mercury-based attacks with a Mercury power rating of 100 and its available Jupiter-based attacks with a Jupiter power rating of 85.
The Succubus can use the following battle commands:
- Attack: Used 2 out of 8 times, this is this monster's standard physical attack.
- Hail Prism: Used 2 out of 8 times, this is a Psynergy spell that causes four large ice spheres to slam into the party of Adepts and shatter in quick succession, dealing a Mercury-based attack with a power rating of 90 and a range of 5. It consumes 16 of its user's PP.
- Wind Slash: Used 2 out of 8 times, this is a Psynergy spell that projects a moderately wide glowing purple swath of energy through each of multiple Adepts, dealing a Jupiter-based attack with a power rating of 50 and a range of 3. This ability consumes 9 of its user's PP.
- Heartrender: Used 2 out of 8 times, this Monster Skill has the battle text read "Succubus glowers miserably at you” as a group of glowing pinkish-white hearts converges on a single target, lowering their attack power by 25%.
Felling the Succubus yields 101 Experience Points and 143 Coins, and there is a 1/16 chance that the monster will randomly drop a Crystal Powder. If you happen to fell it with the effect of an offensive Mars Djinni, its rewards become 131 EXP and 185 Coins, and the chance it will randomly drop its item becomes 1/4. In Golden Sun only one Succubus is fought throughout the entire game, together with two Grislys as one scripted boss encounter that occurs on the second "dungeon floor" of the optional Crossbone Isle as soon as you try to enter the door to that floor's puzzle room. Therefore, the minimum rewards of the battle are 587 EXP, 1543 Coins, and a single guaranteed Potion.
As part of a team of three monsters that is one special encounter, the Succubus has comparatively few HP but is the user of area of effect Psynergy for elemental damage, while the Grislys are the monsters that are strong and durable. This battle should only be adequately difficult by boss battle standards if Crossbone Isle is visited and this battle is fought earlier in the game through the hidden method at Tolbi-bound Ship. This is definitely a battle that can be won in one turn by having everyone use full-powered summonings at the start, but if you decide to battle these the typical way, the Succubus is the target that goes down much more easily than the Grislys, so that should probably be focused on first. Mars-based Psynergy is what all three monsters are weak to.
