This enemy shoots 5 freezing spikes that reflect off terrain rapidly when provoked. Although the spikes themselves do miniscule damage, they will very easily freeze characters fighting off other enemies in the vicinity, and leave them set up to the Orange Roundhead Snake's fire attacks. The Bait strategy can be used with a character with a Freeze Charm 4 and Purple Crystal 6 to prevent being frozen, with only a very small chance of becoming such. Once theotherenemies on the screen are dead, they're not much of an issue, and are more of an annoyance than anything else. The Priest's Staff of Poisoner 4 can prevent it from launching its attacks, like other Cacti. Outside of Priests, a Magician using the bait strategy from a floating platform will direct this enemy's attacks to it without the Magician getting hit, but only if the enemy is positioned in a spot that can meet those conditions. Thunder and Poison type weapons are best against it.
