And another, a red horse, went out; and to him who sat on it, it was granted to take peace from the earth, and that men would slay one another; and a great sword was given to him.
~ Revelation 6:4

Behavior[edit | edit source]

Phase 1

  • War, while mounted on his horse, will either charge left or right and won't stop until he has crossed the screen three times.
  • He will also shoot an 8-directional shot.
  • He will occasionally ascend off-screen and summon five troll bombs.
  • Once his health is halfway down, War's horse will blow up, and War will do his crying "rest animation", starting phase 2.

Phase 2

  • War will charge the player at high speeds, pausing occasionally to catch his breath.
