Plot Outline[]

Dusk Robber (Side Story)[]


  • Scorching Inferno: As pointed out by Sulfur Pot, when a high-level legendary enemy is tamed they gain a killer move. Scorching Inferno allows Nighogg to shoot a blast of fire from his mouth; a very powerful killer move. It did a lot of damage to Black Lotus even though it barely hit her.
  • High Invulnerability: Nidhogg's body is covered in extremely durable armor; strong enough to deflect Crimson Kingbolt's tapping screws and survive his barrage of missiles.
  • Swimming: Nidhogg can use his tail to swim in water.


  • In Norse mythology, Níðhöggr (Malice Striker, often anglicized Nidhogg) is a dragon who gnaws at a root of the World Tree, Yggdrasil.
  • Nidhogg had one of his fangs cut off by Black Lotus.
  • When the Mystical Reins were cut off by Lotus, Nidhogg devoured Sulfur Pot who put them on him which suggests that the reins enslave Legendary Enemies against their will.
