Boulder Bisons sit still until they see you, then they curl up into a ball and try to roll into you. The only way to make them uncurl is for them to crash into a wall, after which they will try to target you again.

Tactics Edit

Tips & Attacks Edit

Aeronaut Edit

An easy way to kill a Boulder Bison is to approach them from the sky and fly near them, and put your body right next a wall. The Bison will roll right under you and hit the wall, becoming vulnerable. Then it becomes a simple matter of dropping down and hitting them, just make sure you're back in the air when it begins to roll again. Repeat the process until the Bison is defeated. Note: if you hit them as they're falling, you can safely get in 3 hits before it is protected, which means only two attack sequences will be needed.

Ferric Edit

Approach the Bison so it begins rolling, then lead it to a wall. Double jump as it hits the wall, timing a Divebomb for the moment after they hit the wall to get an early hit in. Finish them off by attacking them while they're vulnerable, repeating the strategy if needed.

Crag Edit

If you can find a wall above their crash point, you can hit them from above each time they uncurl.

Ridgeback Highlands Boulder Bison

Boulder Bisons Locations in Ridgeback Highlands

The yellow dots in the picture are the locations of Boulder Bisons in Ridgeback Highlands. Starting at the river checkpoint (bottom middle), go up and left to find 3 bison in as many rooms. This route is the most efficient as you encounter the fewest other enemies. If your character has enough HP remaining (don't waste your food, just go back to the checkpoint if not) you can continue to the bison further left, with 1 and 2 in the rooms respectively.

Other factsEdit

Boulder bisons are used in order to break sets of boulders found when you first venture into

the canyon. They are broken by making the bison roll into them. When the bison hits them, it will become vunerable to hit for a few seconds, like when it hits a wall.
