how can i get the blue thing in Red’s left hand?
i think i need it to pass this level cause I keep losing..

By Vincent

I ended up using the Blue Bird. Rogues where my STICKY GOO dealth 48 damage and then 144 afterwards. I had about 460 health to take ONE blow from him. The item I used was the one where there was a 20% chance of removing all positive effets (thus removing the knight’s 50% shield). I basically targeted him until he was ready to strike and then I CHEERED to ensure he would suffer 100% of his dealt damage. The 20% odds of removing his positive effects is obviously best occured early when he CHEERS and shields himself and needs to happen once before he attacks and once after to ensure your damage isn’t just 24+144 (first attack is reduces by 50%).

I found that using White with Princess class allowed me to heal all the damage and get one strike per turn.

Thanks @Ursa — Tried all 3 strats, and yours was the one that worked for me. Be sure to attack the Red Bird Knight on the first chance you get with the princess, so that the Knight doesn’t have a chance to protect himself. Your princess will be able to regain full health whether or not you use the chili. Not sure how to get 3* with this, maybe on the last round you need to fill up the princess’ health first?

I used the black bird with Captain. On the first round, use the self ability to boost attack for 60%. I used a healing weapon, purple glove, to offset the difference. Captain does average 230 with the 60% increase and automatically removes shield. I managed to do it in one try with 1 star. Not 3 stars but was simple besides

By the paper bag

For me I used the red paladin and just kept attacking for every turn and got 2 stars

This was a strategy I use to get 3 stars:

Veteran Druid, Level 18, Tasty Pan and Colourful Bag (Both from GPM).

Keep hitting him until he attacks you. Before you heal (Matilda’s Medicine), make sure he has the Thorny Vine effect. Then heal as much as you can and finish him before he attacks for the second time. If I’m correct, you should have FULL HEALTH.

It works Like a charm, having elite druid allows you to kill him without using the chilli. Also, good place to farm Magic Water (not main prize though).

By Zeta

Using elite Druid did it for me. Thanks! This one was hard to figure out.

Elite Red Paladin worked for two stars, but the level is glitched. When Sword Spirit is defeated, scores 30,000 and 15,000 appear above the enemy and Paladin, respectively. Obviously that totals 45,000. However the final score ends up being only 31,500 for two stars.
I tried another way, not using the chili at all, and the final total is even lower though the same “scores” appear at the end of the battle.


You lose 1500 points per round. So the faster you win the better chance of three stars

Tried again with Veteran Druid, and was fully healed at victory. Scores on the screen showed 30,000 and 30,000 – but the final total was 43,499 for a two-star score.

Same for me. I don’t understand how to get 3 stars. Coz now defeated and have fully health. So I don’t know how to get more points

By gloomybb

I used Druid Matilda (white) with the honey spoon + honey jar combo. Defeated the level with full health. I, too, had the 30000 + 30000 numbers shown at the end, but only ended up with 43499 for two stars. Hope they fix this soon.

By DarthPig12

I finally got 3 star in this level. I used blues as rogues in level 17. I atacked evil red and befo re he atacks, use his passive ability for self-damage.

I hope this functions for you

By tag

I never got sword what’s up with that?

By Harry

I used the Samurai. So easy…

By tsubaki

Not really as hard as people make it seem to be. These were my stats:

Level 17
Blues Rogues (Level 5)
Swift Slingshot – GPM (164 attack)
Remote Control – GPM (422 health) But honestly anything that gives that 8% increase should do

The rogues should be doing roughly 100 damage per attack with 300 for poison. I killed him before he even got to attack me and got 3 stars easy.

By Bob Goblin

Druid Matilda is actually a good choice if you want to three star this. I initially beat this with Red samurai but went back a few levels later (lvl 17, mastery 5) with druid Matilda and it was just as fast to defeat but Matilda finished with full health, which made all the difference to the number of stars.

By Larry

does anyone else notice that since the latest update the enemies have got stronger and levels have got harder?

I used red’s samurai. Attack on all rounds, then shield on rounds he attacks. Only use rage chilli if he’s almost dead or you’re almost dead.
