The Ocean HunterEdit

Prior to Torel's and Chris' arrival to Tartarus Deep, Charybdis attacked an underwater operation, killing all but one diver.[1]

While traversing through an underwater dark cave, Torel and Chris noticed a strange light in a distance and moved to investigate. However, Charybdis quickly reveals herself once the two adventurers got near her, but they were able to back up in time. Charybdis then proceeded to attack the two adventurers, who fought back.

Halfway into the battle, Charybdis flanked the two from behind and attempted to suck them into her mouth. Despite the odds, however, Torel and Chris were able to defeat her, causing her esca to fall off due to extensive trauma and ending Charybdis' reign of Tartarus Deep.


Sunburst Area/Vulnerable area: Entire body
Sweet Spot/Weakpoint: Eye(?) (first part), Esca/lantern

The battle is split into three distinctive parts.

Charybdis will first approach the player(s) and open her mouth to release the lanternfish hidden inside. The player(s) can either rapidly fire at her mouth or her eye(?) earlier to prevent this attack or attack the incoming enemies before focusing on Charybdis. The pattern will repeat after doing so.

After she loses one-third of health, Charybdis will retreat further into the darkness (save for her lantern). The player(s) must repeatedly fire below the illuminating lantern to stop Charybdis from coming out of the darkness and biting the player(s). The pattern will repeat after doing so.

Once her health is reduced to almost a half, Charybdis will pull off one last move to kill the player(s) by sucking the player(s) into her mouth from behind. From here on, the protagonists will be thrown around by the strong current and the Sweet Spot will be revealed. The player(s) must fire at the indicated Sweet Spot before the time limit runs out (indicated by the proximity between the player(s) and Charybdis' mouth) to avoid taking damage. Charybdis will be defeated once she receives three shots to the Sweet Spot.

Trivia Edit

  • A giant anglerfish boss named Myctophidae from Monster Eye has some similarities to Charybdis, such as its attempts to suck in the player characters during the last stage of its boss fight with its esca being the final target/weakpoint.
