Hedgehag
This large hedgehog creature can usually be found in packs of up to 20. Normally it is peaceful but when provoked it will use its sharp needles to attack its predator.
No one really knows why it was named Hedgehag. Some say it was a typo when the enemy was first named. Others say it stirs from its violent nature when provoked in packs. It's a mystery.
According to some players defeating multiple Hedgehags in a certain area of Autumn's Rise will lead to a rare event.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

The Hedgehag is a small, four-legged creature with dark grey skin and a back covered in brown spines.

Combat[edit | edit source]

Once engaged in combat, Hedgehags will attempt to follow and swarm Lea. They have a single attack that they are able to use: a dash attack, in which they roll straight at Lea, damaging her on contact. The attack is led by a brief period of spinning during which the hedgehog takes reduced damage. They are able to jump and climb as well as Lea. Perfect Guarding one of their attacks will briefly stun them and cause them to take increased damage.

Strategies[edit | edit source]

Hedgehags are the first and weakest enemies encountered in Autumn's Rise. While one or two Hedgehags can be easily pinned down and dispatched with Melee attacks, their main danger lies in large groups, where Hedgehags at the back of the group can stay hidden from your attacks, and then counterattack through the crowd. For this reason, hit and run tactics may be useful in these cases: Use area-of-effect combat arts on the group of Hedgehags when it is safe to do so, then dodge ahead of their persistent attacks. In some places, it is also possible to lead Hedgehags into following you across water, and then hit them with Balls in mid-jump, knocking them into the water and damaging them.

When paired with other enemies, Hedgehags should be dealt with first, as they require no special tactics to defeat and their aggressive following will often lead them in front of the other enemies. This same good following ability makes them an excellent choice to lead between groups of foes when trying to obtain a high combat ranking.
