The damage sums up to 11 ships and 364 people have died!
Created by Rahab to oversee Luna Sea, the Leviathan has rammed ships to pieces and swallowed fleeing divers whole. The scars received from past attacks and attempts to kill the monster add to his fearsome appearance. As of now, Leviathan has a record of sinking 11 ships and 364 deaths.
The bounty on the capture or death of this massive prehistoric shark is 8,000 G.
The Ocean HunterEdit
After they arrived at Luna Sea in search for the Leviathan, Torel and Chris came across the underwater ruins of an ancient city, where the megalodon was rumored to be. While traversing the ruins, the two stumbled upon the Leviathan, which immediately attacked them, prompting them to fight back. During the battle, many of the sharks in the surrounding area assisted the Leviathan but failed.
Halfway into the battle, Torel and Chris lost sight of the massive shark and scouted out the area. Shortly after, the Leviathan suddenly burst out from a structure and attempted to kill them there. Despite the odds, however, Torel and Chris were able to defeat the monster, ending the Leviathan's reign of Luna Sea.
Sunburst Area/Vulnerable area: Body
Sweet Spot/Weakpoint: Eye, throat/gullet
After smashing apart a nearby structure and "roaring" at the player ("It's coming!"), the Leviathan will first swim around the area before attempting to bite the player. Sometimes the monster will move his head around and "roar" to indicate that his about to attack. The player must fire rapidly and continuously at his throat to deal enough damage to cancel his attack. Afterwards the Leviathan will then repeat the pattern. Sometimes the Leviathan will swim away and deploy three sharks to attack the player.
Once his health has been reduced to half, the Leviathan will back up slowly while the camera quickly focuses on two sharks coming at the player from below. Once they're out of the way, the camera will look back up ("It's gone! Where did it go?") shortly before the monster reappears. At this point the Leviathan will try to bite the player, but not before opening his mouth and slowly shaking his head sideways. The Leviathan's Sweet Spot will also be marked by a crosshair. The player must fire at the Sweet Spot before the time limit runs out, which is indicated by the proximity between the player and the Leviathan. The Leviathan will be defeated once he receives three shots to the Sweet Spot.
- The Leviathan can be considered the mascot of the game, since he is featured on many promotional images of the game and that the bounty poster's drawing of the monster is part of the game title.
- Leviathan's body appearance resembles those of sand tiger sharks or their prehistoric giant ancestor, Leptostyrax
