The Pale Whale
|“||Still bearing the harpoons from his previous stalkers, this mighty Frozen Waters boss lies waiting in a tomb of icebergs for his next victim. Don't let his size fool you, he's as fast and aggressive as they come, and armed with a blowhole known to project ensaring bubbles and the occasional clingy starfish!||„|

Description[edit | edit source]
The Pale Whale is a giant sperm whale that lurks in the bottom of the Frozen Waters. This legendary mammal has been hunted by the most courageous of whalers and adventures, yet this beast has been able to defeat all of its assailants in bloodbaths that tainted the waters in red and were left to be remembered solely as myths and stories recounted between the most guillible marineers. Although yet alive, such encounters have left their mark on the mighty creature, as seen by the multiple deep scars that permeate the animal's skin, some still adorned by the harpoons that were the cause of such wounds. This, however, has only made the beast more aggressive and fierceful, and it will ferociously defend itself from anyone or anything that enters its domain.
Behavior[edit | edit source]
The Pale Whale's lair is filled with large icebergs attached to its walls, reducing the area's initial size and making the fight more claustrophobic and cramped. The Pale Whale has two attacks, being able to bite the submarine for heavy damage, or release Giant Bubbles or Starfish from its blowhole, and its two attacks will sometimes be used simultaneously. In addition to that, it will alternate between swimming and charging at the vessel, making its movement somewhat unpredictable and difficult to track.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The Pale Whale is heavily inspired by Moby Dick, the antagonist of the book of the same name.
- The Pale Whale's name was decided through a vote in a Dev Stream, with some of the other name options being "White Whale", "Moby Dick" and, hilariously, "Moby Richard".
