Key Attacks

Slide Attack - The Lagombi will launch into a quick, fast slide straight forward. This attack is fast and is often repeated two times.

360 Slide - The Lagombi plants its feet on the ground, hunches up and looks to the side before launching into a fast, circular slide. The best way to avoid this is to evade to the the Lagombi’s right hand side.

Sit - If you attack a Lagombi from behind then it may sit on you - be aware.

180 Degree Claw - The Lagombi raises its right claw and spins on the spot to attack around it.

Ice Throw - Lagombi reaches 'into' the ground and hurls a chunk of snow towards you.

Recommended Strategy

The Lagombi is prone to launching into fast attacks, and as such you need to be wary of standing in front of it. Its belly is also armoured, so the best place to attack the Lagombi is definately the back. That said, you still need to watch out for the Lagombi sitting on you.

Attacking a few times and dodging to the right is the recommended stance you should repeat due to the Lagombi’s 360 degree slide. When the Lagombi does launch into a slide it’s recommended that you do not give chase immediately, simply because he may come straight back at you.

Stay where you are so that you can either react to the Lagombi’s return or work on getting back to him should he not return (though staying at a distance may invite the Lagombi back). Simply focus on the side and flank and the Lagombi should go down quickly.

Notes :

  • The Lagombi is particularly weak to Sonic Bombs due to their large ears.
  • Throw a Sonic Bomb at the Lagombi as it slides and it will fall over.
