Drekk received lots of visits to his lair from monsters in need of his curative powers, but his brother Grakon was fed up with having his home invaded by strangers, so he spent his time scaring visitors away. He became famous for being Drekk's troublesome brother, and he ended up having to leave his lair. Now he's trouble on the loose!

Role: Control

Overview

Grakon is one of the best deniers in the entire game, being able to do pretty much everything and more than that a denier needs. He has many ways to control such as CDA, Mega Stun, Stun, some extra turns, and lots of status manipulation that makes him a great denier and all-round incredible monster.

Pros:

  • Amazing stats and trait
  • Abundant tortures
  • Broken Movepool
  • CDA and Mega Stun
  • Has two Fire moves despite being a Nature monster
  • Has PER, NER, TD
  • Mega Stun/CDA + Self Extra Turn
  • Great Relic slots
  • Nice Special

Cons:

  • Moderately high cooldowns and stamina costs
  • 4 Slot Syndrome(too many good moves to choose from)
  • Special isn't that good for a denier
  • Extra Turns are Anticipation bait

Counters

  • Marquis De Flambe can be used to deal lots of damage to Grakon, and has Anticipation to counter his extra turn moves.
  • Even though his trait is amazing, it only covers Possession for denial, so monsters with other single-target denials like Kronx and Lamia can counter him. Lord Pumpseed is exceptional as he is a Fire denier with Corruption which bypasses Possession Immunity.
  • A good Pierce user, like Wildbird, can hit him through his Area Dodge. Nitroblaster is exceptional as he has Pierce and is a Fire monster. He is also an Artifact, meaning he can't be Stunned or tortured. Be wary of his CDA skills though, as those can still affect Artifacts.

Fun Facts:

  • Grakon's move Ratamahatta is a reference to a song of the same name by Brazilian band Sepultura
