Monstrosities are massive enemies encountered in Infinity Blade II. They do not have weapons, instead attacking with their arms and head. They can be incredibly tough enemies and can kill you very quickly, no matter how much health you have.
Monstrosities arm attacks can be tricky to dodge. Some attacks you cannot dodge in the same direction the attack came from, like you would with a normal enemy. For example, when a monstrosity stomps before attacking, you must dodge away from the foot that stomps, or block in the center if using a heavy weapon, to avoid taking damage. One attack requires you to stand still to avoid damage. They frequently attack with their head, attempting to bite you or smash you with their skull. Headbutt attacks cannot be blocked, unless you are fighting with a heavy weapon. Monstrosities will sometimes try to clamp their jaws around you. Blocking does nothing, so you will have to parry, dodge or enter a Tap sequence. The sequence is similar to that of a weapon lock when fighting normal enemies. You must repeatedly tap the screen to push the Titans jaws away from your body. Every second you are still in the sequence, however, you will take incremental damage. If you fail to expel the creature by the time your health hits zero, you will be devoured. If you complete the sequence successfully, the monstrosity will be stunned and battle will continue as normal. Parrying its teeth can result in the generic Tap Sequence instead, where failure simply allows the titan a free hit. By parrying downward you can parry his head when he tries to bite you.
Types of MonstrositiesEdit
There are only a few Monstrosities, three of them being Boss Titans. Monstrosities that can be fought anywhere are the Wretch, Plated Wretch, Iron Wretch, Pierced Wretch, Lupun, Chelon. The Behemid can only be fought in the caverns below the second seal. The MX-Goliath is a Blood Sentinel, and must be defeated to unlock the third seal. Gargap can be found if you climb the tree in the arena, and defeating him grants you the Vile Armor. The Moss Golem is fought after defeating the Bog Giant, and defeating it grants you the Vile Blade.
