Malebranche?
« on: May 08, 2009, 11:01:25 am »
For those who don't know what it is, see this page: http://www.chronocompendium.com/Term/Malebranche.html

To give it a quick test, I copied and replaced Beach Bum's data with it (Malebranche is the 194th monsters in the list, and Beach Bum is the 2nd). Then I went to Lizard Rocks and fought the Bums, so they appeared as Malebranches except the names.

Here's the savestate file for epsxe(US version).

And a screenshot.




It appears behind TimeDevour but before Nikki in the monster list, so maybe it is a dummy monster in a certain battle (an enemy projectile or body part, for example).
But I really can't recall whether I have seen it somewhere in the game.

Oh, sweet, so it has a full character model then? It looks really small in that pic though. The texture gave me the impression of a giant tree with a face.

I believe it's a part of the LochNest enemy. When the Nest falls off the stick, you see the stick doesn't disappear until the victory music plays and the camera pans out. I believe the LochNest can only be found in the Viper Manor Bluffs.

Yeah, I think you are right.
