Sassafras is more than meets the eye.

His eye.

His friendly eye...

Overview

Sassafras is a Polygon Boss that spawns in Melancholy Forest and areas around it. Created by Zathsu.


Design

Sassafras is a large tan hexagon. A single circular eye, like that of The Saw, sits on top of it, but with a yellow pupil on a black sclera. At each of the edges on top of him, giant Trapper Auto Turrets and Auto Dominator Turrets alternate. Since they are Auto Turrets, they can aim at players. On each side is a spawner that spans its entire side. He was created by Hexen.

Behavior

Zathsu Enemies Sassafras

The six possible variations of Sassafras minions.

Sassafras will wander around surprisingly quickly, looking around at players with the glowing yellow pupil in its black eye, sometimes squinting at players. It will spin slowly as well, like an Auto 5.

The Trapper barrels fire out Mega Traps and the Dominator barrels will track the closest player. The Dominator bullets slightly curve and home in on players, but with so little effort it's almost unnoticeable. They will explode into a ring of sixteen smaller bullets (the size of a Vulcan's) four seconds after firing if it did not make contact with a player.

Sassafras' spawners will shoot out small tan hexagonal Gunner Minions called 'Sassafras', that get into groups and gun down players. There is a maximum of 2 per spawner. They can have either one, two, or three eyes on them, and can either have a hat or not, for a total of six varieties. When a Sassafras minion is destroyed, all other Sassafras Minions will get the Frenzy buff for 2 seconds. Every minion will say the word 'Sassafras' every few seconds, quietly, but will say different things in certain quotes. Each Sassafras minion has 250 health.

During the battle, various random phrases with absolutely no meaning will be said. These lines are usually references to other famous lines, quotes, or pop culture, things in the Tale of Diep, or just absolute nonsense. This is to disorient his foes. >_<
