  • Name: Deadly Crescent
  • Motif: Mirror Dory
  • Type: General Purpose Battleship
  • Size: 89.36 m / 293.2 ft
  • Zone: Q (Ice Forest), etc.
  • Weapon: Curved beam cannon (abdomen), etc.

A battleship encountered after entering Planet Darius. Equipped with abundant optical weapons such as a curved beam cannon, rapid-fire laser cannon, and homing laser cannon, the enemy aircraft ends crushed on its elastic jaws.


Deadly Crescent's main form of attack is to throw it's dorsal fins at the player, which spin around before returning to it like a boomerang. Shooting them will deflect them backwards while the Silver Hawk's shots also get deflected as well. It's other attacks include a series of upwards arcing lasers and a stream of bullets, often used in conjunction with the fins. After the fins are destroyed it will start to shoot homing lasers, as well as releasing small floating blobs from it's mouth.
