Traits, Appearance, and Abilities Edit
The Half Brute only has two legs, but they are quite powerful. They are very aggressive, and attack with a pound to the ground. They also try to attack Sphinx with their electrified horns.
The Half Brute will first form an electric barrier around itself. It will then approach its enemy in an attempt to ram into them. If it cannot get close enough to its target it will stop and perform a powerful stomp move. The shock wave it creates covers a large distance, hitting anything in a radius around the monster.
Strategy for SphinxEdit
Avoid getting close to the Brute until after it has performed its sonic jump, which is telegraphed with a roar. You can avoid this deadly move by double jumping over the blast. Once it releases the shock wave, its body will become vulnerable for a bit and you can attack it safely with a sword strike. Repeat this process 3 or so times to defeat it.
