This article contains information no longer in-game, and are thus historical records of MapleStory.
Hekaton was a Major Boss from Kritias, released in MapleStory's RED Update for certain servers. Hekaton was available in KoreaMS, MapleSEA, and JapanMS, but it has been removed from all versions due to poor optimization of the boss battle and low participation.
Up to 100 players could fight against Hekaton at a time in the Royal Palace Trueffet, a massive map where you would attack Hekaton’s multiple body parts. Potions could not be used during the boss fight, but there was no limit as to how many times the player could die while fighting.
In order to defeat Hekaton, you had to destroy Hekaton's core, which was shielded until you defeated his other body parts. Hekaton's attacks included punching with one of or both of his hands, which were hard to dodge given his large stature. Hekaton could also shoot projectiles all around the map and create lightning strikes, which makes dodging more important. Hekaton could also teleport the player to a pitch black map where the player had to fight hovering mobs (which received a fixed amount of damage) in order to escape. Finally, Hekaton could also flip the screen upside down, disorienting players.
Various objects throughout the map could be used to aid in the battle. Dirt-brick platforms would be present throughout the map, some of which were stationary while others came out of the ground and floated to the top. Some body parts of Hekaton could be stood on, and there were teleporters on the sides of the map that would take players up and down the map. Adjacent to these teleporters were cannons and flying ships that could fire at Hekaton’s body parts to deal large damage.
- Hekaton is the largest boss in the game, however technically Gollux would be the largest as he is several maps apart tall and wide.
- Hekaton is named after Hekatonkheires, three greek giants of immense strength and power.
- In Korean MapleStory, Hekaton speaks.
- As of Hekaton's removal, the only location where his theme plays is in Morass's That Day in Trueffet area.
