Yamata Trophy (Ancients Awakened).png "You DARE enter my territory, Terrarian?! NYEHEHEHEHEH..! Big mistake..!" Yamata Trophy (Ancients Awakened).png

Yamata is a post-Moon Lord Ancient Boss fought at night in The Mire biome within the Lake of the Rising Moon. He is a counterpart to Akuma.

Spawn[]

Yamata does not spawn on his own and requires the player to summon him using a Dread Moon Sigil in The Mire, at the Lake of the Rising Moon during the Night.

Behavior[]

Yamata is a central body with 7 protruding heads. His main body is extremely resilient to any attack - however, one of his heads is his true head, and that head has lower defense and shares a health bar with the body. If the player go too far from Yamata, he will teleport near them.

Attacks[]

  • Once summoned, Yamata will inflict every player with the Abyssal Gravity debuff, which greatly limits the player's flying abilities.
  • All of his false heads spray slow Abyssal Flames for the entire fight.
  • Extends his false heads towards the player.
  • Fires a stream of acid at the player.
  • Shoots a stream of fireballs that explode into flaming pillars on impact.
  • Shoots Abyssal Bombs that home on the player before exploding into arcing shots.
  • Shoots Abyssal Fireblasts upwards, that rain down on the player and explode into bursts of arcing projectiles.
  • All of Yamata's attacks inflict the Hydratoxin debuff, which deals damage over time that increases the longer the player has it.

Quotes[]

Yamata before battling and in both his phases features many quotes, alarming the player of his attacks or are simply for dialogue.

Pre-Battle[]

  • "NO! I DON'T WANT TO FIGHT RIGHT NOW! I NEED MY BEAUTY SLEEP! COME BACK AT NIGHT!" (When attempting to summon during the day)
  • "Hey Dumbo! Mire is that way!" (When attempting to summon outside of The Mire at night)
  • ''You NEED to use that sigil on the altar at the centre of the mire! Trust me, nothing bad will happen!'' (When attempting to summon in The Mire, but outside the Lake of the Rising Moon)

Normal Phase[]

  • "You DARE enter my territory, Terrarian?! NYEHEHEHEHEH..! Big mistake..!" (when summoned before defeating him)

  • "GET THEM! EAT THEM! JUST GET THEM OUT OF MY FACE!!!" (extending false heads)
  • "Down Down DOWN THE VENOM GOES!!! When will it stop? WHO KNOWS?!"

  • "Running away? I DON'T THINK SO!" (if the player tries to get away from him)
  • "NGAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!!!" (shooting fireballs)

Yamata Awakened Trophy (Ancients Awakened).png "The abyss hungers... AND IT'S GOT 7 HEADS! NYEHEHEHEHEHEHEHEHEHEHEH!!!" Yamata Awakened Trophy (Ancients Awakened).png

Yamata no Orochi is the awakened form of Yamata, and is much more powerful than his normal form. This form can only be battled in Expert Mode.

Spawn[]

Yamata no Orochi appears after Yamata is defeated, or can be summoned using a Dread Moon Rune in The Mire during the Night.

Behavior[]

Once defeated, a bit of dialogue will appear, after that, Yamata will awaken in his true, abyssal form. Instead of Abyssal Gravity, the player will be inflicted with the True Abyssal Gravity debuff, which cripples flight even more.

At the start of the fight, Yamata will summon Haruka to his side. Haruka remains invincible for the whole fight, occasionally appearing and charging at players to do damage.

Yamata in this form is much larger than before, and positions his heads farther away from the player to rain down attacks from multiple directions. He alternates between the following attacks at random.

  • All heads fire pink lasers at the player.
  • All false heads fire slow Abyssal Flames, while Yamata's main head fires homing Abyssal Bombs.
  • Yamata's false heads fire purple death rays that form a web. The death rays will then sweep across the area, forcing the player to move with the gaps in the lasers. Yamata's outer heads also fire vertical streams of eruption-causing fireballs.
  • Yamata's false heads sequentially fire death rays at the player, one pair at a time.
  • Yamata's false heads shoot large fireballs straight down that cause eruptions on impact, while his real head fires homing Abyssal Bombs.
  • Yamata's false heads shoot fireballs downwards that erupt into massive shockwaves that travel horizontally across surfaces. Yamata's main head fires shotgun spreads of pink lasers.
  • When one of Yamata's fake heads is killed, an invincible Mire Soul will spawn. The Soul will chase players for the remainder of the fight, dealing contact damage.

Summons[]

Quotes[]

When transitioning to its awakened phase[]

This dialogue sequence always happens prior to Yamata's Awakening.

  • "NYEHEHEHEHEHEHEHEHEHEHEHEHEH~!"
  • "You thought I was DONE...?!"
  • "Hah! AS IF!"
  • "The abyss hungers..."

Awakened Phase[]

  • "AND IT'S GOT 7 HEADS! NYEHEHEHEHEHEHEHEHEHEHEHEHEH!!!" (When Awakened)
  • "Yeah, yeah, I get it. My first phase is obnoxious. Let's just get this over with...!" (when summoned directly with the Dread Moon Rune)
  • "THE SUN DOESN'T SHINE IN THE DEPTHS!" NYEHEHEHEHEHEHEHEHEH!!!" (if the time reaches day while fighting him)
  • "You're an annoying little bugger, you know?"
  • "DIE! WHY WON'T YOU JUST DIE ALREADY?"
  • "THERE IS NO ESCAPE FROM THE ABYSS!" (if the player tries to run from him)
  • "NYAAAAAAAAAH! YOU WON'T LIVE THROUGH THIS ONE!" (shooting big fireballs)
  • "GRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH STAHP MOOOOOOOOVIIIIIIIIING!!!!!" (firing an acid stream)
  • "HAVE A HEALTHY TASTE OF ACID!!!" (firing an acid stream)
  • "I'M GOING TO RIP YOU APART YOU LITTLE WRETCH!!!" (extending false heads)
  • "YOU'RE STILL FIGHTING?! WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU?!"
  • "COME ON!!! STAND STILL SO I CAN BLOW YOU TO MARS!" (shooting big fireballs)
  • "WHOOPS! DROPPED ACID! Hope you're not degradable...!" (shooting fireballs)
  • "WHOOPS! DROPPED ACID AGAIN! NYEHEHEHEHEHEHEHEHEHEHEHEHEH!" (shooting fireballs)
  • "YOU THINK I'M DONE YET?! I DON'T THINK SO!!!!!"
  • "I'VE HAD IT UP TO HERE WITH YOUR SHENANIGANS!!! EAT VENOM YOU LITTLE HELLSPAWN!!!"
  • "EAT ECTOPLASM YOU LITTLE WRETCH" (firing homing souls)
  • "NYAAAAAAAAAH!!!" (firing homing souls)
  • "REEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!" (extending heads)
  • "WH-WHA?! DIE DIE YOU LITTLE TWERP! DIEDIEDIEDIEDIEDIEDIEDIEDIEDIE!!!"
  • "That's my girl...!" (When Yamata reaches 50% Health)
  • "STOP IT STOP IT STOP IT!!! I'M NOT GONNA LET YOU WIN!!!" (When Yamata is almost defeated)
  • "STOP IT!!! I'M NOT GONNA LOSE AGAIN!!!" (When Yamata is almost defeated after already being defeated once)

Post-Battle[]

  • "NYEHEHEHEHEHEHEHEHEHEHEHEH...! And don't come back!" (If Player is defeated or if Player leaves the Mire)
  • "NO...! IMPOSSIBLE! EVEN IN MY AWAKENED FORM?! YOU MUST HAVE CHEATED! GYAAAAAAH...! FINE! TAKE YOUR LOOT! I'M OUTTA HERE...!" (When defeated for the first time in Expert Mode)
  • "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!" YOU LITTLE BRAT!!! I ALMOST HAD YOU THIS TIME!!! FINE, take your stuff, see if I care!" (When defeated in Expert Mode after defeating him already)
  • "HAH! Nice try! Come back in expert mode when you don't have to cheat to beat me! All your loot is MINE still!" (When Yamata no Orochi is defeated in Normal Mode)

Notes[]

  • The debuffs inflicted by Yamata last for the whole fight, making flying less useful in this boss fight.
  • Yamata no Orochi will frequently sink into the ground and teleport above the player if they are above him for too long.

Tips[]

  • Since Mire Souls spawn once the player kills any of his Awakened Heads, it is a good idea to damage them all equally, and then finishing them all quickly so that the Souls do not overwhelm the player during the battle.
    • It is also a good strategy to ignore the fake heads altogether and focus on damaging the main head, ending the fight quicker and not having to worry about Mire Souls spawning in the first place.

Aftermath[]

  • The fog in The Mire is lifted, and the biome can be explored freely at will.
  • Yamata drops Dread Moon Rune when defeated in Expert Mode, which can be used to summon his awakened phase instantly.
  • If Akuma is defeated as well, Shen Doragon can be challenged by crafting Chaos Sigil and used in front of the pagoda or the lake.

Trivia[]

  • Yamata's AI is a combination of a modified version of the Mantid Matriarch from the mod GRealm, and a modified Hydra AI from Qwerty's Random Content mod (With Grox and Qwerty’s permission, of course). This is why his leg and head animations are much more fluid and smooth than most other animations.
  • Yamata has the 2nd most amount of dialogue out of any of the bosses in Ancients Awakened. He is only beaten by Shen Doragon.
  • Yamata is based on the Japanese Yokai Yamata no Orochi, an 8 headed, 8 tailed monster from one of Japan’s most famous legends.
  • Yamata's roar is an edited version of Megalon's roar from the Godzilla franchise.
  • Yamata is confirmed to be getting a total personality rework.
