Moapa (モアパ Moapa) an NPC encountered in Golden Sun: The Lost Age. He is the leader and chief of the town of Shaman Village, a powerful warrior, and a descendant of Hoabna (ナバホ the Navajo people).

Story[edit]

Felix's party arrives at Shaman Village, in search of a Psynergy that would allow them to enter Jupiter Lighthouse. However, they find that the entire village has locked themselves in due to a fear of outsiders. The only house that is open in any way is Moapa's. He introduces himself as the chief of Shaman Village. When Felix's party presents the Shaman's Rod, he recounts the legend that he is to give the Hover Jade to whoever gives him the Shaman's Rod. However, when Felix's party attempts to do so, he hesitates, reluctant because Felix's party is a group of foreigners who are not from the allied town of Contigo.

As chief, Moapa's house is one of the larger buildings in Shaman Village.
At the suggestion of his knights, he takes the party to a large Wind Stone, ordering the Adepts to make the nearby wall of sand disappear as a test. Sheba, as a Jupiter Adept, is easily able to do so by casting Whirlwind on the Wind Stone, leading Moapa to believe that Sheba is of Contigan descent. Despite this, Moapa still refuses to hand over the Hover Jade, as there is another test. However, he is reluctant to let them take it as the test's winners have been male, while Sheba is a girl. However, Felix's party convinces Moapa to allow them to take the test.

Moapa then leads the Adepts to Trial Road. He explains that the test is a recreation of a legendary battle between the heroes of Contigo and Shaman Village, wherein the two raced to the top of a mountain, then engaged in a fierce battle. He lets the Adepts know of the requirement of leaving their weapons and/or armor in chests at key points, making the intial portion a race, as the winner can continue with more armor.

With the explanation complete, Moapa and his two knights race Felix's party to the top of Trial Road, then engages the Adepts in battle. Felix manages to successfully defeat Moapa's party, granting him the Hover Jade in exchange for the Shaman's Rod. Upon returning to town, Moapa allows the townspeople to come out of hiding, but expresses regret that he never learned the group's names. Hearing of this, Felix's party goes to Moapa's home and gives their names, which Moapa states will be remembered by the villagers.

As a boss[edit]

Moapa.png
Moapa is battled at the highest point of Trial Road and is accompanied by two Knights. In a mechanic unique to this encounter, he and his Knights' threat levels vary depending on the player's performance during the Colosso-like minigame at Trial Road - his Defense rating and the likelihood he will use Bosca Hit on a given turn both lower if Felix clears three of the four rooms before Moapa himself can, and they lower again if Felix clears all four rooms first; thematically, this is because Moapa's side is forced to drop more of their gear into chests in order to follow up behind Felix. The Knights, meanwhile, only have increased Defense and use their Strong Hit ability more often if Felix fails to beat Moapa to the end of any of the four rooms.

Moapa's statistics are as follows:

Name HP PP Attack Defense Agility Luck
Moapa 3042 0 354 219 / 174 / 120 181 40

Moapa uses these battle commands:

Command Chance
to use
Elem. Stats

Description
Attack 5/8
62.5%
-- Standard physical attack.
Bosca Hit 3/8
37.5%
-- Enemy ability where the user jumps towards a target to deal a strike that emits a small blue-and-white explosive effect. Deals a standard physical attack with the resultant damage multiplied by 1.7.

In addition to his regular battle commands, Moapa can also use the following consumable items:

Crystal Powder.gif 3 Crystal Powders: The party is hit by a Mercury-aligned attack with 90 base damage that is spread out over 5 enemies with high damage distribution. As a consumable item, this would assume Moapa uses this with a Mercury elemental power rating of 100 instead of its normal rating, but since his normal Mercury elemental power rating is 100 to begin with, this is a moot detail.
Nut.gif 2 Nuts: An item that restores roughly 200 HP to either the user or an ally.
Water of Life.gif 1 Water of Life: Theoretically would bring back one of the user's allies with full health. Apparently due to a bug, however, Moapa never uses this even if one or both of the Knights have been felled.
Antidote.gif 1 Antidote: An item that removes Poison or Venom from either the user or an ally.

In addition to their regular battle commands, each Knight can also use the following consumable items:

Bramble Seed.gif 2 Bramble Seeds: The party is hit by a Venus-aligned attack with 140 base damage that is spread out over 5 enemies with high damage distribution. As a consumable item, this would assumes the Knight uses this with a Venus elemental power rating of 100 instead of his normal rating, but because his normal Venus elemental power rating is 100 to begin with, this is a moot detail.
