Harder Final Boss

Hack of Secret of Mana

Description:

This patch significantly steps up the difficulty of the two phases of the final boss fight (Dark Lich and Mana Beast) so as to subvert the “final boss is a pushover” trope common to so many RPGs. These fights will now be much longer and reasonably challenging even if you max level your characters.

Specific changes for Dark Lich:

  • Level increased from 72 to 99.
  • HP increased from 6666 to 46666.
  • Strength increased from 74 to 99.
  • Intelligence increased from 96 to 99.
  • Wisdom increased from 96 to 99.
  • Spell power increased from 44 to 99.

Specific changes for the Mana Beast:

  • Level increased from 73 to 99.
  • HP increased from 9990 to 65535.
  • Spell power increased from 45 to 99.

Important things to note:

  • Because HP is so high now, Analyzer may give misleading results about HP (see screenshot).
  • Apply this patch to an unheadered ROM.
  • Because these fights will be so much longer now, you might want to consider combining this patch with the “Item Limit ‘9′ Patch” as well to take the edge off a bit.
