The Auntie Medusa is a monster that can be found in Dark Cloud (known as Auntie Medu) and Dark Cloud 2. Loosely based off Medusa from Greek mythology, it has snakes for hair and a serpent's tail. It also has matching gloves, bra, and wields some sort of trident.
The two main attacks of an Auntie Medusa and its variations do not change between games. The first attack, a breath style attack, will petrify the player and cause damage, and the second attack is a close stab with its trident. The breath attack can be blocked to avoid any damage. In addition, this attack can be bounced back at her using a charged melee weapon, causing petrification to the Auntie Medusa. The trident attack is slower and close range and is not difficult to block. Using the Ridepod with the Samurai Arms makes the Auntie Medusa a non-threat, as the Ridepod is immune to petrification.
Auntie Medusa is called "Auntie Medu" in Dark Cloud because it's full name is too big to fit as a name tag in Dark Cloud. Many enemy names in Dark Cloud are even spaced together, etc so they don't overlap the nametag bar. For example Evil bat is called "Evilbat", Statue Dog is called "Statue Dog" and Master Utan is called "Masterutan" for example.
