The Kraken (クラーケン Kurāken) is a huge giant Pacific octopus (Enteroctopus dofleini) that resides in Baroque Sea. He is the first boss in The Ocean Hunter.

BackgroundEdit

Created by Rahab to oversee Baroque Sea, Kraken was known to crush many ships with his powerful tentacles. Current records report that Kraken has attacked 4 ships and killed 185 people so far.

The bounty on the capture or death of this giant octopus is 5,000 G.

The Ocean HunterEdit

According to the other hunters, Kraken dwells within a sunken ship, which may have been destroyed by the very monster in the past, somewhere on the ocean floor.

Prior to the events of the game, the Kraken attacked and sank a ship out at the eastern area of Luna Sea on a stormy night.[1]

Although Torel and Chris were originally heading to the Kraken's location on their hot air balloon, the situation underwater forced them to continue underwater. They eventually reach the ship and search inside for the monster. After reaching the captain's cabin, the two adventurers are suddenly attacked by Kraken, whose tentacles burst through the floor, before the monster drew them into the hull, where he resides. The monster then attacks the two, who promptly fight back.

Halfway into the battle, Kraken seizes the two with one of his tentacles and tries to kill them by ramming them into a nearby boulder. Despite the odds, however, Torel and Chris are able to defeat the monster, ending the Kraken's reign of Baroque Sea.

GameplayEdit

Sunburst Area/Vulnerable areas: Body, tentacles
Sweet Spot/Weakpoint: Eye

The Kraken will first raise one of his tentacles at a certain time and try to slam down at the player. The player will have to fire continuously at his raised tentacle until he withdraws the tentacle to cancel the attack. This attack pattern will continue on so forth. The player may continue to fire at the monster before the next attack.

After the Kraken's health is reduced to half, the monster will grab the player character with one of his tentacles in a brief cutscene. From here on, the Kraken will swing the player around and the Sweet Spot will be revealed via a targeting reticle onscreen. The player must fire at the indicated Sweet Spot before the time limit runs out, which will be indicated by the player character's dialogue. Failure will result in the player being rammed into a nearby boulder and taking damage. The Kraken will be defeated once he receives three successful shots to the Sweet Spot.

EtymologyEdit

Kraken refers to the real-life legendary sea monster. Dating back to twelfth century Norway, the Kraken is commonly depicted as a gigantic octopus that can destroy ships by wrapping its arms around the hull and capsizing it.
