Smoky Gobul Icon

In-Game Description

Strange Leviathans that prefer to live on land. With glowing lanterns and an internal flame sac, Smoky Gobul's are not to be underestimated. Their spines contain a powerful sedative.

Introductory Cutscene

Location: Volcano (3rd) Area 4

Synopsis: The coastal Area 4, set under the ominous shadow of the Volcano, is currently being inhabited by a herd of Aptonoth. The herbivores plod through the water, looking for morsels of seaweed thrown up by the waves. A few of the Aptonoth give the hunter a few indifferent looks as he/she walks through their midst.

Suddenly, the hunter trips on a strange green plant that flops limply as the white-capped crests of water flow past it. The hunter pulls his/her foot out of the plant's tendrils, and then is forced to move out of the way as a seemingly aggressive Aptonoth butts him/her away. At first startled, the hunter realises that the Aptonoth only wants to get to the plant. The big grey monster bends down and sniffs the plant cautiously, then opens its mouth for a bite.

All of a sudden, a huge stalk with a fiery orb at the end grows out of the ground, waving hypnotically in front of the Aptonoth herd. It suddenly rises and produces a massive flash of light, blinding the entire herd. Panicked at the loss of sight, the Aptonoth scatter and bellow in fear. The hunter removes his/her arm from his/her face in time to see a gigantic Leviathan erupt out of the ground and attack the biggest Aptonoth. The hunter sneaks up behind the Leviathan, and the hunt begins.

Physiology and Behavior

The Smoky Gobul is an alternately-colored subspecies of the Gobul, sporting an ashy grey skin in order to camouflage itself in volcanic environments. Strangely, this Leviathan is entirely terrestrial, although it does submerge itself in deep water when resting. It still has a soft spot for Frogs, and can be fished out of water in the Magma Mountain and Cratered Island subregions. Despite this, it prefers to move about on land.

This monster is an ambush predator like its cousin, burying itself in volcanic soil to lunge out at unsuspecting prey. It contains a flame sac in its body, which, along with its humongous lungs, allows it to breathe fiery whirlwinds at its enemies. Its spines are venomous, and inject a sedative toxin on contact. Much like how the Ivory Lagiacrus is more adept on land than the Lagiacrus, the Smoky Gobul is stronger and more aggressive than the Gobul when it comes to manoeuvring on land.

Frenzied/Apex Behavior

Smoky Gobul can be infected with the Frenzy. When this occurs, its grey hide turns to dark purple and its eyes glow red instead of yellow. Its roar becomes deeper and more gravelly, like rocks being crunched underfoot. Now, it becomes able to use a Charge-Bite combo where it performs a Galloping Charge before instantly transitioning to a Wide Bite.

The existence of an Apex Smoky Gobul has not been confirmed.

Items/Carves

Smoky Gobul can have its body carved three times, have its tail severed, have its lantern broken, and drop an item.

Note: Items are listed in order from most common to least common.

Attacks

Normal

Galloping Charge: Clumsily gallops forward until it reaches its target, then trips over its own feet and lands on its face.

Wide Bite: Opens its vast maw, then jumps forward and chomps down hard. Can do two if the first misses.

Mud Lunge: Burrows into the ground, approaches a target, and then emerges and performs the Wide Bite. Like the Wide Bite, it can do two if the first misses.

The Light: Lowers its head, sparks its lantern twice, then roars and creates a blinding flash of red light. It cannot do this when its lantern is broken. (Lightblight, Stun)

Rolling Pincushion: Arcs its back, inflates its back spines, then barrel rolls over the target. It will then take a moment to retract its spines. When enraged, it is difficult to see this attack coming.

Sleep Slap: Opens its mouth slightly, raises its tail, then swings it once to the left and right. (Instant Sleep, regular Sleep if low on stamina)

Funnel of Death: Burrows into the ground, approaches a target, and then emerges and exhales a fiery whirlwind. It will end by jumping up out of the ground. (Fireblight)

Body Slam: Rears up onto its hind fins, stays still for a moment, and then crashes down onto all fours.

Knockout Pain: Burrows into the ground, approaches a target, and suddenly extends its spines without warning. (Instant Sleep, regular Sleep if low on stamina)

Rapid-Fire Funnel: Takes two slithering steps back, roars, and fires three whirlwinds in quick succession. One goes to the left, one to the right, and then one to the center.(Fireblight)

Roar: Unlike the regular Gobul, the Smoky Gobul can produce a deafening roar when enraged. It will puff up its back, open its mouth, and release the roar. Can be blocked with Earplugs.

G-Rank Onwards

Sleep Spines: The Smoky Gobul can now leave spines behind on the ground when it does its Pincushion attack. They vanish after a short amount of time. (Regular Sleep)

Roll-Funnel Combo: Performs a Rolling Pincushion and then immediately burrows into the ground. It will then perform a Rapid-Fire Funnel attack. (Regular Sleep, Fireblight)
