Guard Savage's main form of attacking is to shoot a shark-shaped beam from its mouth. After firing it five times, it will attempt to ram the player, after which it will send anchor drones. Its mouth is its weak spot, but its fins can also be destroyed for extra points.
The only difference is its behavior since now it wont follow the player, increasing the chances of the player falling prey to the deadly beam which now moves faster than in other games.
- Guard Savage got its name from how sharks are depicted as savage fishes that often guard shipwrecks and/or sunken ruins in fiction.
