Return to Shadow Hearts Monsters

Kappa

The Kappa is a enemy in Shadow Hearts. They are followers of Dehuai who can transform. They are first encountered in the sewers in Fengtian. Two Kappas appear along side a Water Tiger once Yuri finds the Sealing Stone that opens the way out of the sewers. They are bi-pedal amphibian with blue-green skin and red markings. The hands and feet are webbed. You may also encounter Kappas in the Shanghai Pit Fights.

Boss Battle

Two Kappas will be fought alongside a Water Tiger. The Kappas should be killed first, as they will both use Life Dew on the Water Tiger if damage is dealt.

It is wise to take on one Kappa at a time as they may also heal each other.

They shouldn’t post too much of a threat – physical attacks from Yuri and Margarete should be enough to take them out in a few turns.

Later on in the game you will fight them by themselves or with Wugui – by this stage they only take a few hits to kill.
