This enemy shoots a large amount of spears at characters. In addition, the spears home into them. Although they look Fire type based, its attack is Physical based. Silver Crystals and Priests with 50 DEX or more should be combined in order to raise defence to minimize the rapid damage taken from the spears. Alternately, a Black Crystal should nullify at least some of this damage taken. This enemy should be eliminated quickly, as stickmen may be stuck in one location while fighting theotherenemies on screen, and will be quickly killed by the hail of spears. The use of status-inducing weapons, Freeze and Ice especially, should be a priority when taking down this behemoth of an enemy. Thunder type weapons should also be considered. The homing capabilities can also be exploited by either using a bait to absorb all the damage, which can be suicidal, or direct the spears away without getting hit.
Alongside its boss cousin, this enemy is tied with the largest amount of projectile attacks in the game, along with the Pyramid Boss.
