The Rainbow Butterfly, known as Holly in her humanoid form, is an extremely rare, attractive butterfly that lives deep in the Rainbow Butterfly Wood. It is attracted to the scent of the Lafrescia Flower. It has the ability to separate itself into seven different butterflies (each of these butterflies represents a different color of the rainbow), but It is very difficult to reunite. It's said that one who sees the Rainbow Butterfly will never leave its forest.It is a rainbow.
HollyEditAfter being freed from a spiderweb by the Firbits, the Rainbow Butterfly took a liking to them. She used her magic to take the form of a beautiful human named Holly, although the Firbits suspected that wasn't her real name. One day while she was out searching for food, she disappeared.
Deeply distraught by Holly's absence, Conda sent four Firbits from his tribe into the Rainbow Butterfly Wood to find her.
When Max and Monica arrive in Sindain, they hear of Holly and her trademark Potato Pie (this is Max's favorite food, and it also raises his defense) which Max's mother Elena also used to make. This leads Max to believe they are the same person, which is in fact not the case.
The Rainbow Butterfly developed powers soon after it was caught in a web. Before then, it was a regular white butterfly. Soon it was able to control nature, transform into a different creature and spit large orbs of energy. But most importantly, the Rainbow Butterfly discovered how to split itself into seven smaller butterflies (one of each color of the rainbow [red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet]), and reunite. The Rainbow Butterfly gained these abilities from Griffon due to his corruption of the woods and the creatures inhabiting it.
To defeat the Rainbow Butterfly, it must be lured to the center of the Lafrescia Flower by attacking the "Vines" in the center. After that, it divides into the seven smaller butterflies which must then be killed in the order of the rainbow (beginning with the red butterfly, ending with the violet butterfly).
These smaller butterflies must be approached slowly and carefully. If startled, the butterfly will attack you and fly away. You can attack the butterfly in midair using a long-range weapon before it lands on another petal, but using this strategy isn't safe, as you won't be able to avoid its attacks. Using any of Maximilian's hammer weapons will result in being instantly attacked, as they cannot attack quickly enough to avoid startling the butterfly. It is recommended to use Monica for her speedy sword attacks.
Remember to take a picture of the butterfly when it's united; this is an inside scoop that Donny can reward you for.
An easy way to defeat this boss is to stay near the center of the flower as the Rainbow Butterfly splits, locate the petal that doesn't have a butterfly on it, head to it while staying at the centre and charge up Monica's magic, while slowly moving towards the Red Butterfly, when the Red Butterfly gets a yellow pointer above it, click circle and fire the magic, this should home into the butterfly and defeat it without startling it and causing it to attack, just keep charging magic and slowly moving to the next butterfly.
N/A: The fight is more akin to a puzzle.
