A monster from another world which landed here as a result of the Dimensional Schism. It may have numerous personalities, but all of those personalities are uniformly evil, having contributed to the progression of the Dimensional Schism with the force of Ludibrium, not to mention how it's turned all the toys of Ludibrium into monsters. They say that Papulatus is increasingly endowed with more and more power from the forces of the other world as the Dimensional Schism grows larger and larger over time.

― Old Monster Book description for Papulatus



Story

An arrangement with Rhinne, Maple World's Transcendent of Time, and the King of Ludibrium, has led to time being stopped in Ludibrium to preserve the youthful innocence of Ludibrium. Cracks in time and space have formed throughout Ludibrium as a result, with strange creatures appearing from another dimension. Papulatus, one of these creatures, has barricaded itself in the depths of Ludibrium's Clocktower Bottom Floor. It has been syphoning power from these dimensional cracks to grow stronger and expand the Dimensional Schism, turning the toys of Ludibrium into monsters as a result. With the expanding schism, various monsters have found their way to Maple World and started wreaking havoc throughout Ludibrium. Once you obtain the Piece of Cracked Dimension and block Papulatus's escape route, it is up to you to defeat Papulatus and destroy these cracks in time to restore Ludibrium back to normal!

Battle

Papulatus is a boss located at the bottom of the Ludibrium clocktower. It consists of a ghostly, plant-like being from another dimension who pilots a robot in the shape of a clock. Papulatus can be summoned by dropping the Piece of Cracked Dimension item onto the small hole found on the right side of the map. When the crack is filled, a glowing orb will appear at the center of the map. Dealing damage to the orb will cause Papulatus to emerge and begin attacking players.

The Papulatus found in Mu Lung Dojo, Mirror World, Silent Crusade, and Tower of Trials (JMS only) do not use these attacks.

All Phases

Each player has 5 lives throughout the course of the battle.

Throughout the fight, numerous cranes will drop from the ceiling. If a player is caught by one of these cranes, they will be held in place for a short period of time. Players are vulnerable and unable to attack when held by a crane.

Papulatus will occasionally summon two lasers on either side of the map, the one on the left rotating clockwise and the one on the right rotating counterclockwise. These lasers deal no damage, but can be blocked by standing in front of them. If the two lasers touch each other, Papulatus will summon two large pendulums and crash them into each other, instantly killing any players on the screen.

Every two minutes, Papulatus' alarm will ring for 30 seconds. During this time, Papulatus will remain stationary and vulnerable to attack, but players' HP will constantly decrease at a steady rate, a potion cooldown of 6 seconds will be active, and clock springs will begin raining from the sky, dealing 10% damage and stunning players who are hit.

Phase 1

In the first phase, Papulatus rides on the clock robot to attack players with a variety of skills.

  • Smash: Papulatus slams the robot's arms into the ground, dealing damage to players nearby
  • Alarm Clocks: Papulatus summons blue alarm clocks along map which explode upwards, dealing high amounts of damage (OHKO in chaos mode) to players standing on or above the clock's position.
  • Curse of Papulatus: Papulatus will spawn a timer above the players' heads. Tick-Tocks and Master Chronos mobs will spawn periodically and drop 2x and ½x multipliers upon defeat, which will double and halve the player's timer respectively. When either the player's timer or Papulatus' timer reaches zero, players will be stunned or have their skills sealed until the remaining timer runs out. This effect cannot be dispelled, although the timer itself can be blocked initially with an invincibility frame or by dying and respawning.
  • Time Rift: Papulatus spawns rifts in the fabric of spacetime on the floor of the map, which will instantly kill any player. Players must jump onto the platforms to avoid them.

When Papulatus reaches around 20% of his HP bar in this phase, he will go to sleep, becoming temporarily invincible for 60 seconds. During this time, the pillar in the center of the map will transform into a wheel divided into several segments, each segment labeled with a random percentage (0%, 1%, 10%, or 100%). A portal will also appear on the left side of the pillar, and both High Darkstar and Low Darkstar mobs will be summoned around the map. Players must clear as many segments on the clock face as possible before Papulatus wakes up.

To clear a segment, players have to defeat the Darkstar mobs and collect the time bubbles that drop. When collected, the hand on the wheel will spin clockwise until it lands on a segment, with the amount of rotation depending on the value of the time bubble; Low Darkstars drop bubbles ranging in the minutes (10/30/50) and High Darkstars drop bubbles ranging in the hours (2/4/9). Players then need to use portal next to the pillar to clear the segment the hand is currently pointing at. When players have cleared all segments or 60 seconds have passed, Papulatus will wake up and attempt to heal the cumulative amount of HP (if any) remaining on the wheel.


Phase 2

When Papulatus' first HP bar reaches zero, Papulatus will abandon the robot for a small vehicle which flies freely throughout the map and attacks players.

  • Projectile: Papulatus will fire a small projectile at players which deals 30% damage (less, with %damage reduction)
  • Otherworld Papulatus: Papulatus will summon several copies of itself. These copies have low HP, but if not dealt with quickly will be reabsorbed by Papulatus, restoring its health.
  • Bomb: Papulatus will summon a bomb which deals heavy damage. Players can split this damage across party members, reducing the impact.
  • Teleport: Papulatus will teleport a player to a random spot on the map.

Papulatus has no other special mechanics in this phase, although the laser pattern is slightly different from the first phase.
