This behemoth of an enemy fires a large Bullet that explodes into 50 cloud attacks on impact with the ground, which can seriously damage characters caught in the blast. The explosion resembles that from the Fire Spirit 2, but the cloud attacks reflect off the terrain instead of piercing through it.
These enemies can be horribly dangerous, especially when paired with the Blue Diamond Mushrooms, which can lock characters in place with their freezing attacks. A suitable strategy for dealing with them is to lock them up with freezing attacks, such as the Magician's Big Icicle 4, since they do not have any immunities to Freeze. Thunder and Poison type weapons are also largely recommended against it.
There is another, rather bizarre way to dodge their attacks. If only one character will be hit by the blast, drag the character into the floor constantly. The character will take some damage from the bullet, but the flames will envelop the area around the player, since the heat clouds reflect off of the ground, which in turn leaves a large safespot right in the middle of the blast.
