“You think you can stand up to Batta the Beast?”
Batta (バッタ) the Beast is the first boss of Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade. A Ganelon bandit bandit called the Beast for his savagery, he is one of the two bandits that attack Lyn and the Tactician in the prologue.
Normal/Hard Mode Edit
Axe - D
In Lyn's default Normal Mode, the event triggers his auto-death, but in Hard Mode he might be lethal if Lyn does not use a vulnerary.
The best strategy to use in Hard Mode is to approach him at full health and let him attack first. Then, after the Enemy Phase ends, Lyn should heal herself with a vulnerary and then continue the battle as normal. This approach, while cautious, can help secure a victory.
“Who do you think you are? You think you can stand up to Batta the Beast?”
“What? How...How did you--”
Batta was a classic military term meaning a special allowance made to officers, soldiers, or other public servants during the British Raj.
Batta has become a popular joke within the Fire Emblem community for calling himself a beast and yet being very easy to kill often being adapted to other characters in fan-made hacks who are just as pathetically weak.
