* AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever: Only the upper half of his body is visible on screen.
* BackgroundBoss: He spends much of his time in the background, smashing the arena you're in with his hands.
* BossArenaUrgency: When Surtr slams his hands down, he destroys the blocks Lumisa stands on, making it more likely to fall into lava (in earlier versions it was an instant-death BottomlessPit). The blocks do replace themselves but also double as [[CollapsingCeilingBoss falling hazards in the process.]]
* EarlyBirdCameo: You first see him walking in the background of the long vertical shaft in the Icefire Treetop, though you won't actually fight him until much later.
* GiantMecha: His redesign in the most recent version emphasize a more mechanical appearance, making him look like one.
* KillItWithFire: He'll lean in to spit fire at you from time to time.
* {{Leitmotif}}: "[[https://picosong.com/w2jfw Flaming Fist]]"
* PublicDomainCharacter: He's based on the fire giant that brings about the end of the world in Norse mythology.
* TacticalSuicideBoss: He can't be hit while he's in the background. If all he did was slam his hands into the ground, you could never hit him. What's worse about this is that he always uses the magma spit attack if you're directly in line with his face, meaning you can bait him into making himself vulnerable.

* GlassCannon: He actually has a fairly low amount of health for such a late game boss. The problem is he spends most of his time in the air. You have to either use the flare gun to do any damage to him or wait for him to dive bomb you to attack him in melee.
* {{Leitmotif}}: "[[https://picosong.com/w2j9r From Nibiru]]"

* SirSwearsALot: You can find a message left by him from the final skull you collect, and he's as much a potty mouth as the rest of the Sky People.
* TacticalSuicideBoss: While it is technically possible to hit him in the air with well-timed flares, realistically he would be much much ''much'' harder to beat if he didn't do his dive attack. It isn't even that damaging or effective of an attack in the first place, too.

[[folder:Amphisbaena]]
A gigantic snake with a head at both ends, and the Guardian of the Guidance Gate.
----
* DualBoss: While only one creature, the fight against him functions like one.
* KillItWithFire: Spits streams of flames as its primary attack.
* {{Leitmotif}}: "King Konda"[[note]][[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9irPdWikK2w 8-Bit]], [[https://picosong.com/w23D5 MIDI]], [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y1VIi_wXT8c Remake]][[/note]]
* PublicDomainCharacter: Since it's from Greek myths, it's naturally this.
* WarmUpBoss: Especially in the original, where a good shuriken spam was his downfall. He's only marginally tougher in the remake. Considering he's usually the first boss a player fights, it's almost like NIGORO wants to lull the player into a false sense of security...
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Sakit]]
A Giant who wished for The Mother not to return to the sky. He is the Guardian of the Mausoleum of the Giants.
----
* ActuallyADoombot: It's not the ''real'' Sakit, but rather a stone statue of him come to life. [[spoiler: You can meet the real Sakit in ''La Mulana 2'']]
* CollapsingCeilingBoss: Everytime he takes a step or fires his fist into the ground, rubble falls from the ceiling.
* ColossusClimb: Lemeza has to climb up Sakit's arm when he uses his RocketPunch attack so Lemeza can strike Sakit in the face.
* {{Golem}}: All the Giants are preserved as huge stone statues. Most of them can move depending on what the time of day is (it's a puzzle, you hit three stone lanterns to change the insignias so they're all either star, sun or moon). Sakit can only be fought when the Moon is showing, unless you sequence break so much that you get the double jump before fighting him.
* KnightTemplar[=/=]WellIntentionedExtremist: Wants Mother to remain on Earth and will fight anyone to the death over it. [[spoiler: Or so it seemed. In reality, Sakit never wanted his siblings to fight one another.]]
* {{Leitmotif}}: "Giant's Rage"[[note]][[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W9Yi6wDIIU4 8-Bit]], [[https://picosong.com/w23DZ MIDI]], [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oiHyVVfCXvQ Remake]][[/note]]
* NoSell: In the original version, his giant stone body is flat out immune to all subweapons, forcing you to close to dangerously close range in order to attack him. In the remake, he's immune to most subweapons until his mask breaks halfway through the battle.
* [[OneLastSmoke One Last Drink]]: [[spoiler: When you meet the real Sakit in the Underworld in ''2'', he wants one last drink of liquor before expiring.]]
* RegimeChange: "Sakit took power into his hand," both figuratively and literally. [[spoiler: Though new information found in ''La Mulana 2'' reveals that this wasn't actually the case.]]
* RocketPunch: A variant in the original, literally in the UsefulNotes/WiiWare[=/=]PC Remake version.
* TheScapegoat: [[spoiler: ''La Mulana 2'' reveals that he was an UnwittingPawn of Abuto, who orchestrated the entire War of the Giants. He alone was blamed for the conflict, and was sent to the Underworld to have his intestines eaten for all eternity.]]
* WakeUpCallBoss: Oh boy, is he ever. Many players chose to take him on much later, as he is very powerful, ''much'' more difficult than Amphisbaena, and isn't required to defeat for a while.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Ellmac]]
A gigantic frilled lizard and the Guardian of the Temple of the Sun.
----
* CollapsingCeilingBoss: One of his attacks in the original is a roar that causes stalactites and stones to fall from the ceiling.
* {{Fireballs}}
* HighSpeedBattle: Fought while riding in a quick-moving mine cart.
* {{Leitmotif}}: "High-Speed Beast"[[note]][[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bb0ESpnTO1s 8-Bit]], [[https://picosong.com/w23zA MIDI]], [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cLpIcbd6_wM Remake]][[/note]]
* MadeOfExplodium: Original version only.
* MinecartMadness: The entire battle takes place during this.
* OneHitKill: In the remake, don't let Ellmac land on Lemeza when it jumps out of the background, or the fight's over real quick.
* PublicDomainCharacter: One of two subversions among the guardians, the other being OriginalCharacter Sakit. The bestiary in the Vita version states that he's said to be an avatar of the Egyptian sun god Aten. Which is funny because you fight the ''actual'' Aten in ''La Mulana 2''.
* PunnyName: His name comes from 襟巻き蜥蜴 (''erumaki tokage''), which means "frilled-neck lizard."
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Bahamut]]
A giant blue fish with a head like a hippo. It is the Guardian of the Spring in the Sky.
----
* {{Fireballs}}: In the remake.
* KillItWithFire: One of Bahamut's attacks in the original game.
* {{Leitmotif}}: "Dangerous Raid"[[note]][[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9qqQMrSYHUA 8-Bit]], [[https://picosong.com/w2RZd MIDI]], [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dzmzDLU26EE Remake]][[/note]]
* ShownTheirWork: The Giant fish is actually from Arabic mythology.
* SuperDrowningSkills: In the original, Lemeza takes damage from the water during the Bahamut fight whether he has the Scalesphere or not.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Viy]]
A demon so massive that it needs smaller demons to open its eyelid. It is the Guardian of the Inferno Cavern.
----
* AttackOfThe50FootWhatever: The manual has a picture of what Viy actually looks like. All that is seen in-game is the area around its eye. Said part fills almost the entire horizontal area of the screen.
* BadBoss: In the remake, after the pair of imps have his eye held completely open, Viy will either thrust his eyeball upward, knocking the imps away in the process (often right into you), or disintegrate them with his [[WaveMotionGun Wave Motion Eye Laser]].
* EyeScream: You hurt it by attacking its giant eye. And it can ''attack by everting its eye, trying to stab you with it''.
* FlunkyBoss: Summons demons to open its eye.
* FrickinLaserBeams: It can fire one. From its eye.
* GoForTheEye: What would you expect to do if it has an eye that big?
* {{Leitmotif}}: "In the Bottom"[[note]][[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J0w3vGFNvOY 8-Bit]], [[https://picosong.com/w2Rx2 MIDI]], [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EztQ9kN_vNg Remake]][[/note]]
* MercyInvincibility: Subverted in the remake. Touching Viy's body causes Lemeza's health to constantly drain, whether or not he enjoys Mercy Invincibility.
* PublicDomainCharacter: It is based on a tale by Creator/NikolaiGogol about a demon with servants that hold its eye open.
* WaveMotionGun: It fires a ''ginormous'' laser beam from its eye.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Palenque]]
An alien who pilots a giant mechanical gunship. It is the Guardian of the Chamber of Extinction.
----
* AncientAstronauts: It is based on one of the carvings that inspired this whole theory.
* BulletHell: Actually fires a lot of bullets even in the original game. It gets even worse in the remake.
* DifficultyByRegion: Sort of. In the Wiiware remake, it was possible to fly right up in his face and kill him with only a few hits of the flail whip, as collision damage with Palenque did surprisingly little damage. In the PC version of the remake, however, Palenque has a fast life draining ability similar to Viy if you touch him. While this was mostly done to discourage cheap victories, it also makes his battering ram attack do a seriously large amount of damage.
* HighSpeedBattle: Fought while flying around at high speed while on a plane thing.
* KaizoTrap: [[spoiler:In the remake, after being defeated, he leaps out of his ship and explodes, killing you instantly unless you hit him again to smack him back into his ship.]]
* {{Leitmotif}}: "Ancient Machine"[[note]][[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vzH3AdDxg28 8-Bit]], [[https://picosong.com/w2jPK MIDI]], [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OOUHKy9fkss Remake]][[/note]]
* MadeOfExplodium
* RuleOfCool: You're fighting a Alien who's piloting a giant Gradius-inspired ship on a tiny little toy plane. With shurikens. While he has lasers and bombs and all sorts of things.
* TakingYouWithMe: [[spoiler:In the remake, once his ship is trashed, he jumps out of his ship and blows up, killing you both if you don't retaliate in time.]]
* [[UnexpectedShmupLevel Unexpected Shmup Boss]]
* WaveMotionGun: One of its weapons.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Baphomet]]
A pagan deity mostly associated with witches. It is the Guardian of the Twin Labyrinth.
----
* ActuallyADoombot: She shows up alive again in ''La Mulana 2''. The Baphomet in the first game is a copy of that one.
* AmbiguousGender: In actual texts Baphomet is usually referred to as a male but it has a distinctly female body. Most people tend to settle on "it." Less ambiguous in ''2'', where Baphomet is not only explicitly female, but it's also revealed that the goat's head is a mask.
* {{Baphomet}}: But of course. Her first form looks like the demon's classic image. The second form is a purple alien.
* BishonenLine: In the remake, Baphomet's OneWingedAngel form is smoother, more streamlined, doesn't wear a robe, and has slick metallic skin and wings.
* FlunkyBoss: Has up to four witches for Lemeza to deal with during the fight.
* KillItWithFire: Summons lots of flame pillars to fight.
* LastDitchMove: [[spoiler:In the remake, she'll summon a crap-ton of flame pillars while she burns to death when you beat her, but unlike Palenque, these will only kill you [[CriticalExistenceFailure if you already have critically low health]]]].
* {{Leitmotif}}: "Sabbat"[[note]][[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QOst5QzNsFk 8-Bit]], [[https://picosong.com/w2jcF MIDI]], [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1EEMYYpwOpg Remake]][[/note]]
** OminousPipeOrgan
* OneWingedAngel: In the remake, Baphomet decides to stop sitting around and takes to the skies after being sufficiently damaged.
* OurDemonsAreDifferent: It turns out she's actually an angel. She just wears the goat head when praying.
* PublicDomainCharacter: Based on a [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baphomet pagan deity]] (note: NOT {{Satan}}) that UsefulNotes/TheSpanishInquisition accused [[UsefulNotes/TheKnightsTemplar some of the]] [[UsefulNotes/TheCrusades crusading parties]] of worshipping.
* ShockAndAwe: One of her attacks is to summon lightning.
* StationaryBoss: Played straight in the original. In the remake, she [[OneWingedAngel takes on a second, more mobile form]] after taking enough damage.
* SummoningRitual: The witches you've been harassing throughout the Twin Labyrinth invoke one to summon the boss to kill you.
* TakingYouWithMe: In the remake, Baphomet summons a bunch of fire columns when she dies.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Tiamat]]
A Lamia that can control the dimensions, and tried to obtain the secret of life. She is the Guardian of the Dimensional Corridor. ''La-Mulana 2'' reveals a bit more information about her. She's actually an attempt to replicate [[spoiler: the Mother]] by the Olympians of the 3rd children.
----
* AlwaysSecondBest: Attempted to outdo [[spoiler: the Mother]] in creating life and failed.
* BackgroundBoss: In the remake.
* CloningBlues: ''La-Mulana 2'' reveals that she, as well as Nuwa and Echidna, is an attempt to clone the Mother using the chimera technology of the 1st children.
* ChestBlaster: She fires FrickinLaserBeams from her cleavage in the remake.
* CuteMonsterGirl: A trait she shares with her daughter Girtablilu (the scorpion woman).
* EyesDoNotBelongThere: In the remake she has eyes on her palms as well as a third eye on her forehead.
* FanDisservice: Her face becomes angry and distorted once she loses a certain amount of life.
* FlunkyBoss: Has up to four bats flying around at any time and up to four energy orbs that can't be destroyed in the original game. Nothing of the sort in the remake, however.
* FrickinLaserBeams: More like a [[UpToEleven Frickin' Laser Cannon]] in the remake.
* GodivaHair: Especially in the remake.
* KillItWithWater: In the remake, she can summon a huge tidal wave that smashes on the arena, dealing massive damage to Lemeza unless he takes cover under a platform. If she retreats to the background, ''take cover''.
* {{Leitmotif}}: "Interstice of the [[GratuitousEnglish Dimention]]"[[note]][[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GfWB8odAPdA 8-Bit]], [[https://picosong.com/w2jcV MIDI]], [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hgn-Ky5P1HA Remake]][[/note]]
* MarathonBoss: Unless you use the knife combo trick.
* MythologyGag: [[spoiler: The mantra to chant in Tiamat's area is "MARDUK," the mythological character that killed Tiamat in Babylonian legend. ''La Mulana 2'' reveals that Marduk is one of the Sky People, and he makes a mention of "cutting the false Mother (Tiamat) in two".]]
* PublicDomainCharacter: Tiamat was a creator goddess in Babylonian mythology.
* PrehensileHair: One of her many attacks in the original is to lash out with her hair while in the remake they are holding rings used for some of her attacks (Specially the dreaded [[FrickinLaserBeams Laser Cannon]])
* RealityWarper:
** She changed the sides of her part of the Ruins round. That's right: The Endless Corridor is actually the BACKSIDE AREA of the Dimensional Corridor.
** She also disables the Holy Grail's power while Lemeza is in the Dimensional Corridor, though he can still teleport ''into'' the area.
* RuleOfSymbolism: She's apparently meant to represent infinity and/or unchanging, with all the lemniscates (∞) in the Endless and Dimensional Corridors and during the fight with her. Of course, [[FauxSymbolism it could just be Naramura making us think they're symbolic]].
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: She took her eleven children and exiled herself to another dimension, ruining the Olympians' plans to use her to conquer Eg-Lana.
* SlasherSmile: Does this in both versions of the game. As you do damage to her, her facial expression twists into a horrific grin.
* SnakePeople: Much more prominent in the original version, but she clearly has a serpentine lower half.
* StationaryBoss: She stands still for most of the boss fight, only occasionally moving into the background to attack.
* TeleportInterdiction: As long as she's alive, she prevents you from simply exiting the Dimensional Corridor by using the Grail.

!!!Guardians of Eg-Lana
All Guardians of the ruins Eg-Lana in ''VideoGame/LaMulana2''.
----
[[folder:Fafnir]]
A tentacled, salamander-like dragon who guards the Roots of Yggdrasil.
----
* KillItWithFire: Breathes a stream of flames while hanging from the ceiling and spits up fiery boulders while on the ground.
* {{Leitmotif}}: "[[https://picosong.com/w2jcx Dragon of Embraces]]"
* OurDragonsAreDifferent: He looks more like a centipede than a dragon.
* PublicDomainCharacter: Based on the dragon from Norse mythology.
* TurnsRed: When low on health, Fafnir moves faster and starts launching homing spines with his other attacks.
* WasOnceAMan: Was originally a dwarf tasked with guarding a treasure.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Vritra]]
A mechanical dragon who was imbued with the evil intentions of the Vanir. He serves as the Guardian of Valhalla.
----
* AdvancingBossOfDoom: Is constantly walking towards the left, forcing the player to keep moving.
* AnachronismStew: He's from Hindu mythology, yet he's a creation of the Vanir, a race from Norse Mythology, and is activated by the Trickster of Yggdrasil who is heavily implied to be Loki.
* KillItWithFire: Spits fireballs that can destroy the platforms keeping Lumisa out of the water.
* {{Leitmotif}}: "[[https://picosong.com/w2jcM Obstacle]]"
* MakingASplash: His boss room is flooded, and one of his attacks is to leap into the air, creating a tidal wave when he lands.
* PublicDomainCharacter: Based on a dragon from Hindu mythology that blocked up rivers. Appropriately, his room is filled with water and he's guarding the Scalesphere.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Kujata]]
A gargantuan bull with a volcano on his back. He serves as the Guardian of Annwfn.
----
* AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever: He's easily the largest boss seen in both games up to this point, towering over even ''Viy''.
* DeathFromAbove: The volcano on his back erupts constantly, sending a hail storm of magma raining down on you.
* EyesDoNotBelongThere: He has eyes both on the side of his body and on the volcano he carries on his back.
* FlunkyBoss: After you take out his main eye, he retreats and returns with several large rocks with eyes that fire lasers at you.
* {{Leitmotif}}: "[[https://picosong.com/w2j9R Shouldered World]]"
* PublicDomainCharacter: Based on a bull in Islam that carries the angel who shoulders the earth on its back, and who in turns stands on the fish Bahamut.
* WakeUpCallBoss: While Fafnir is quite easy, and Vritra is only marginally harder, Kujata represents a steep climb in difficulty from the previous two. There's a lot going on at once with his fight, between the rain of fire, the rock eyes firing lasers at you, and Kujata's own eyes firing shots at you.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Jormungand]]
A Lokapalan soldier riding a serpent-like motorcycle. He is one of the children of the Trickster of Yggdrasil and serves as the Guardian of the Immortal Battlefield.
----
* AncientAstronauts: Like Palenque, he's based on a carving that inspired the theory.
* HighSpeedBattle: You fight him while riding a smaller motorcycle of your own.
* {{Leitmotif}}: "[[https://picosong.com/w2j9j Twined Malice]]"
* PublicDomainCharacter: While he's named after the world serpent from Norse mythology, he actually bears more resemblance to an Olmec carving of a man riding a feathered serpent, seen [[http://www.crystalinks.com/olmecserpent.jpg here]].
* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: He's very similar to Palenque, both in terms of appearance and how his battle goes - you even use the Pochette Key to start your engine in both fights. The difference is you fight him on land rather than in the air.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Aten-Ra]]
Ra is the leader of the Amarna found in the Dark Lord's Mausoleum. He fuses with the powerful Amarna weapon Aten and serves as the Guardian of that area.
----
* AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever: After fusing with Aten he becomes large enough to nearly fill the whole screen.
* BodyHorror: After he fuses with Amen and Horus, you can see their faces in his abdomen.
* EvilLaugh: He lets out an impressive one at the start of the battle.
* FlunkyBoss: Constantly summons minions to aid him in battle.
* FusionDance: He forces Amen and Horus of the Ennead into one with him, and later fuses to Aten.
* {{Leitmotif}}: "[[https://picosong.com/w2j9E Insane Sun]]"
* LightIsNotGood: He represents the sun and is the most actively villainous guardian in either game.
* OneHitKill: When he drops downwards, don't stand under him. [[SquashedFlat Just don't.]]
* PublicDomainCharacter: Ra is the ancient Egyptian god of the sun, while the Aten is the disk of the sun and an aspect of Ra.
* TacticalSuicideBoss: There would be no way to hit him if he didn't lean down to fire lasers at you after attempting to crush you. Especially since he doesn't need to do that to fire lasers.
* WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity: He gets more and more unhinged with each fusion.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Anu]]
One of the Sky People worshipped as a god by the Kotoamatsu of the 1st Children. He serves as the Guardian of the Ancient Chaos.
----
* AGodAmI: He brainwashed some of the Kotomatsu into worshipping him as a god.
* AncientAstronauts: He and the other Sky People are aliens.
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: All of the Kotoamatsu in the Ancient Chaos have been brainwashed into worshipping Anu. After he's defeated, they become more lucid.
* GlassCannon: He actually has a fairly low amount of health for such a late game boss. The problem is he spends most of his time in the air. You have to either use the flare gun to do any damage to him or wait for him to dive bomb you to attack him in melee.
* {{Leitmotif}}: "[[https://picosong.com/w2j9r From Nibiru]]"
* LuckilyMyShieldWillProtectMe: His ship acts as a shield, making hitting him with flare guns a bit tricky.
* PublicDomainCharacter: He's based on the supreme deity of Mesopotamian religion. Fittingly, his is the last message you get from the crystal skulls, implying he is their leader.
* SirSwearsALot: You can find a message left by him from the final skull you collect, and he's as much a potty mouth as the rest of the Sky People.
* TacticalSuicideBoss: While it is technically possible to hit him in the air with well-timed flares, realistically he would be much much ''much'' harder to beat if he didn't do his dive attack. It isn't even that damaging or effective of an attack in the first place, too.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Surtr]]
A massive fire giant. He serves as the Guardian of the Icefire Treetop.
----
* AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever: Only the upper half of his body is visible on screen.
* BackgroundBoss: He spends much of his time in the background, smashing the arena you're in with his hands.
* BossArenaUrgency: When Surtr slams his hands down, he destroys the blocks Lumisa stands on, making it more likely to fall into lava (in earlier versions it was an instant-death BottomlessPit). The blocks do replace themselves but also double as [[CollapsingCeilingBoss falling hazards in the process.]]
* EarlyBirdCameo: You first see him walking in the background of the long vertical shaft in the Icefire Treetop, though you won't actually fight him until much later.
* GiantMecha: His redesign in the most recent version emphasize a more mechanical appearance, making him look like one.
* KillItWithFire: He'll lean in to spit fire at you from time to time.
* {{Leitmotif}}: "[[https://picosong.com/w2jfw Flaming Fist]]"
* PublicDomainCharacter: He's based on the fire giant that brings about the end of the world in Norse mythology.
* TacticalSuicideBoss: He can't be hit while he's in the background. If all he did was slam his hands into the ground, you could never hit him. What's worse about this is that he always uses the magma spit attack if you're directly in line with his face, meaning you can bait him into making himself vulnerable.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Echidna]]
A clone of the Mother created by the Olympians. She serves as the Guardian of the Hall of Malice.
----
* CuteMonsterGirl: Until you wound her, at least.
* FanDisservice: After you deal a lot of damage to her, her hands get lopped off and one of her eyes is gouged out.
* FrickinLaserBeams: She throws a lot of these at you, including some very powerful ones similar to Tiamat's.
* GodivaHair: Again, similar to Tiamat, she's kept modest by her locks of brown hair.
* {{Leitmotif}}: "[[https://picosong.com/w2jf5 Reproduction of Power]]"
* MarathonBoss: She has a ''white'' health bar, which is the largest you can find. In contrast, Anu and Aten-Ra don't even have full health bars, and Jormungand's health bar is red, which is slightly above a full health bar. It doesn't help that you don't get too many opportunities to hit her.
* PublicDomainCharacter: She's based on a monster that mothered most of the monsters found in Myth/ClassicalMythology.
* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: Not only does she look and fight much like Tiamat, she also has eleven children who you must destroy before you can face her. Justified, in that both she and Tiamat were clones of the Mother created by the Olympians to conquer Eg-Lana.
* SnakePeople: Just like Tiamat.
* TeleportInterdiction: Like Tiamat before her; once you've activated the Hall of Malice, she prevents you from simply exiting by using the Grail as long as she's alive.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Hel]]
The ruler of the Underworld and the daughter of the Trickster of Yggdrasil. She serves as the Guardian of the Eternal Prison.
----
* AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever: Not quite to the level of Kujata or Surtr, but she's pretty tall compared to Lumisa.
* BarbieDollAnatomy: She loses the top half of her dress during the fight and doesn't have visible nipples.
* BodyHorror: To start with, her right arm from the elbow down is skeletal, but that's not the worst part. [[spoiler: She loses more of her body as you fight her, losing the lower half of her body after taking a certain amount of damage, having her arms severed when you think you've killed her, and then having tentacles come from her eyes and mouth as she goes in for her last ditch attack.]]
* CuteMonsterGirl: Even with some decayed parts of her body she doesn't look too bad. At first.
* EyesAlwaysShut: [[spoiler: Until she goes in for that last ditch attack, at least.]]
* FanDisservice: While she fights you topless for the second half of the fight, it's made less alluring due to the fact that she's missing the lower half of her body.
* {{Gainaxing}}: Yes, really. It's subtle, but her breasts have a bit of bounce to them as she attacks you.
* {{Leitmotif}}: "[[https://picosong.com/w2jfN Last Guardian]]"
* NotQuiteDead: After you empty your health, you get the usual red flash signifying that you won. [[spoiler: And then she goes in for one last attack]].
* PublicDomainCharacter: She's based on one of Loki's children in Norse mythology.
