    • May also use an item called "Vunkerl Herb Tonic", which erases and regens everyone within range.
  • The opponents are:
  • Only Kingslayer Doggvdegg needs to be defeated for victory. Once he is defeated, all other enemies will fall to the ground.
  • Kingslayer Doggvdegg has around 10,000 HP
  • All the orcs are immune to Break and Bind.
  • Kingslayer Doggvdegg and Gherrmoga seem to be immune against sleep but the rest of the orcs are susceptible.
  • The mages use Sleepga often.
  • Kingslayer Doggvdegg uses Invincible, as well as TP moves including Tornado Edge, Berserker Dance, and a potent version of Arm Block.
    • Specifically, his Arm Block appears to include a Stoneskin effect in addition to the typical defense boost.
