GOTO-9

About[edit | edit source]

GOTO-9 is the third mini-boss you encouncer in Let It Die. It is vulnerable to Blunt element damage and can drop Candle Wolf metals.

Meijin Advice Note[edit | edit source]

GOTO-9 has some nasty attacks, with its slippery vomit and stuff. Its body press is especially painful. Run and jump to evade it, and don't get close when its aura emerges. How to attack? Well, it likes mushrooms, so try throwing some!

Locations[edit | edit source]

GOTO-9 can be found on Floor 11, Floor 23, and on Floor 36.

On Floor 11 - MAKA-TSUTSUMI, the GOTO-9 Boss Room there is a body with 4 non-usable Heartshrooms lying on the floor. Halfway between the body and the gate to an escalator, a cutscene will trigger and GOTO-9 will make its entrance.

On Floor 23 - ECHIZEN-JIMA, the GOTO-9 Boss Room can be found leading towards one of the up escalators. The room itself is typically near the elevator and has steps leading down to both entrances of the room. The entrances themselves have portcullises above them and a valve next to each door that allows you to open them after the boss fight is over. The room also has 4 boxes in it that are in a loose square formation.

On Floor 36 - ITANADOI, the GOTO-9 Boss Room will have three red chests on one side, and will probably have one or two Lavashrooms in the arena. Be careful around the edges, because there are gaps in the wall which allow you to fall to your death with an errant roll or knockback.

GOTO-9 will only appear on each floor once per tower run. It remains defeated until you go back to the waiting room, which resets the boss encounters.

Floor 11[edit | edit source]

Attack Patterns[edit | edit source]

This version of GOTO-9 has 6 different attacks.

  • It vomits slime onto the ground. The slime is limited to a triangle directly in front of GOTO-9's mouth and it persists on the ground for a short while. While this attack does not hurt you, it causes you to slip and fall to the ground, giving GOTO-9 an opportunity to attack you.
  • It attempts to bite you. While you're standing, it'll charge forward as it bites in an attempt to knock you down. While you're on the ground, it will bite repeatedly, causing massive damage to both you and your equipment.
  • Occasionally after getting hit, GOTO-9 will gain a red aura. If you are within melee range, it will perform a knockdown version of its bite attack. If there are any mushrooms in the arena during this phase, GOTO-9 will rush to and eat the mushroom instead. Healing mushrooms like Lifeshroom and Heartshroom will heal GOTO-9, while Stingshrooms, Crushrooms, Gambleshrooms, and most thrown shrooms will cause GOTO-9 to slam into a wall, knocking it on its back and leaving itself vulnerable to attack.
  • It swings its tongue in an arc in front of its mouth. This attack causes knockback and covers a wide area; even standing too close to GOTO-9's side can result in a hit. When GOTO-9 is about to use this, it will pause and stick its tongue out just a little before using the full attack.
  • It jumps straight up into the air then lands hard on the ground, creating a shockwave that will knock you back and deal damage. After GOTO-9 jumps, you have a few moments to run away from the zone of impact.
  • It rolls into a ball and barrels towards you, causing damage and throwing you to the ground. GOTO-9 will do this twice in a row, then pause to catch its breath, leaving it open to attack. It will only use this attack once its health has been brought into the orange/red.

Health[edit | edit source]

GOTO-9 has approximately 2150 health.

Rewards[edit | edit source]

There is always a red case just outside the gate on the Maka-Tsutsumi side of the boss room; occasionally there's also a silver case next to the Heartshroom body. This case can be opened without triggering the boss fight.

GOTO-9 has 3 possible kill rewards:

  1. Kill Coins.
  2. Equipment. This can be up to 2 Star ranked equipment.
  3. Candle Wolf Green Metal.

Boss Strategy[edit | edit source]

This version of GOTO-9 is relatively underpowered compared to most of the other bosses. Its charging bite can be easily sidestepped, giving you opportunity to attack. Wait until it uses its charging bite or jump/shockwave attack, run in to give it one or two hits, and dodge roll away. GOTO-9 will also occasionally enter a red aura state, in which it walks very slowly in an attempt to bait you into melee range, where it will suddenly give you a fast bite. This is a good opportunity to use ranged weapons, or you can drop a Crushroom or Stingshroom on the ground to open GOTO-9 up to attack. If you don't have any ranged weapons or mushrooms, either run in and touch GOTO-9 then dodge roll away to cancel its aura, or simply wait until the aura fades.

Floor 23[edit | edit source]

Attack Patterns[edit | edit source]

This GOTO-9 has the same attacks as on Floor 11, plus two new ones.

  • It vomits up a skeleton armed with a machete. This skeleton is independent from GOTO-9 and will follow you around the boss room, attempting to hit you. The skeleton is relatively weak in both attack and defense; it should go down in two or three hits. Just before GOTO-9 uses this ability it'll reach into its mouth, then spew out a bit of slime (and the skeleton), giving you a brief opportunity to attack.
  • It shoots its tongue at you in a straight line, like a frog. If the tongue attack connects, it will strip a piece of gear from you, and GOTO-9 will eat the item, healing considerably. Before using this, it will crouch its front legs down and open its mouth once, then repeat the action as it attacks. It will also often make a distinctive yell, though it can be difficult to hear over the fight music.

In addition, its basic attacks are improved from the Floor 11 version:

  • It can perform the rolling charge at any health level, and will roll up to three times instead of two. At low health, it will perform the roll attack more frequently.
  • At low health, GOTO-9's jump attack can jump toward you instead of merely jumping up and down in place.

Health[edit | edit source]

This version of GOTO-9 has approximately 15000 health.

Rewards[edit | edit source]

There are 3 Rewards dropped by GOTO-9:

  1. Kill Coins.
  2. Equipment.
  3. Candle Wolf Black Metal.

Boss Strategy[edit | edit source]

This GOTO-9 is much tougher than the one on Floor 11, meaning it will require much more strategy. The best strategy involves a combination of Slowmungus (rare, only appears starting at floor 21) or Transparungus (semi-rare, appears on floors 11-20) and Stingshrooms. While invisible or time-stopped, simply hit GOTO-9 with a Blunt element weapon until it's dead.

If you are using Transparungus, GOTO-9 with slowly wander around the arena while you hit it. If you use Slowmungus, GOTO-9 will try to attack you, but will be moving so slowly that you can to spend the entire 15 seconds of slow time hitting it before it finishes a single attack.

If these specific mushrooms are unavailable, you can also throw any non-exploding mushroom on the ground as a distraction. If GOTO-9 eats a Crushroom, Stingshroom, or Gambleshroom, it will ram into a wall and this will give you a chance to attack for extra damge. GOTO-9 will gradually regain health as it eats, but if you can deal more damage than it heals, this is a very good strategy. You can even throw the mushrooms into the arena before starting the fight.

Otherwise, go with the strategy used on the Floor 11 GOTO-9. Let it attempt to bite you, sidestep and give its side a hit or two, then dodge roll away. Be VERY careful not to get over-confident; this GOTO-9 has very high attack power, so not getting hit is essential. It can also be blinded by an Iron's rage move, leaving it helpless for about 5 seconds. This is best used when it has low health, to prevent it from using its rolling attack.

Floor 36[edit | edit source]

Attack Patterns[edit | edit source]

This GOTO-9 has the same attacks as on Floor 23, plus its basic attacks are improved from the Floor 23 version:

  • It can perform the targeted jump attack at any health level.

Rewards[edit | edit source]

There are 3 Rewards dropped by GOTO-9:

  1. Kill Coins.
  2. Equipment.
  3. Candle Wolf Red Metal.

Boss Strategy[edit | edit source]

As with the Floor 23 version, take advantage of the red aura and mushrooms that will send GOTO-9 into a wall. Use these windows of opportunity to attack. The optimal weapon to use is the Death Burner Iron, but any high-damage weapon will work.
