Read the wind's direction and look for the best time to use PON PON.

How to hunt MocchichiEdit

Tips 5

Hunt the fast-running Mocchichi birds.

The Mocchichis have a good sense of smell, so you shouldn't approach them in a tailwind.

Be patient, and wait with CHAKA CHAKA. When you get a tailwind, use PON PON and have the Yaripon target them with spears!

Chances for Hunting in RainEdit

Tips 6

The Mocchichis really have a great sense of smell. They'll react differently based on the wind's direction.

However, when it's raining, all the smells are washed away, so their reactions get a lot slower!

Could rain be your best chance for hunting Mocchichi?!

Imitation Kacheek!?Edit

Tips 7

The Song of PATA PATAEdit

Tips 11

Advance your army forward led by Hatapon. This all-purpose command is the song of PATA PATA.

The Patapons hate to retreat, so once you send them forward, they won't step down themselves.

Whether to attack from afar or march forward, releasing arrows. Make your decisions depending on the state of battle.

The Song of PON PONEdit

Tips 12

Use this song when you want to deal big damage. This courageous command is the Song of PON PON.

If you use PON PON while in Fever status, the Patapons' Morale will be tops!

Your defence is low while you use PON PON, so decide on the best timing for attack and defence. PON PON is the move of the ultimate leader.

The Song of CHAKA CHAKAEdit

Tips 13

Reduces the damage dealt by enemy bosses and armies. This wise command is the Song of CHAKA CHAKA.

This also lowers the attach rate of fire and ice statuses, and the effect on defence is magnified while in Fever status.

However, this severely lowers your attack power, so use it while you're in danger or have to soak an attack, and look for an interval when you can swap to PON PON.

The Legend of PataponEdit

Tips 14
According to Patapon legend,

"Those who travel to Earthend and gaze upon "IT" will know true happiness."

That is what is said.

Rarepon LevelEdit

Tips 15

By levelling-up your Rarepons you can unleash their true power.

They reach maturity at Lv.5, and their final form at Lv.10.

There are 16 types of final forms that Rarepons at Lv.10 can reach. Each has its own unique ability.

Ultimate RareponEdit

Tips 16

Sabara, Mogyu, Gyaba-type.

These 3 Rarepons are known as "Ultimates". They develop far more quickly than other Rarepons.

However, developing them is an extremely difficult task, and gaining even one level isn't easy.

Yaripon AbilitiesEdit

Tips 17

The Yaripon's role is to deal damage to the enemy's front line.

They can be open to enemy attacks, so prepare some defence, like fire and sleep resistance.

They're great at hunting, and they can be the force of the Patapon army.

Tatepon AbilitiesEdit

Tips 18

Tatepons are the true tanks of the Patapon army.

During fever status their shields link and act as your guardians.

If you erect this with Fever CHAKA CHAKA they can take all kinds of damage. They're the shields of the Patapon army.

Yumipon AbilitiesEdit

The Yumipons have the longest range out of all the Patapon army, and can be used to execute preliminary attacks.

In Fever status they get off three rapid shots, to deal damage to a wide area. They have low HP and are weak against fire, and the wind can influence them greatly, so they have a lot of weak points, but they're still incredibly powerful.

Use them as the main back-rank units of the Patapon army.

Kibapon AbilitiesEdit

Tips 19

The Kibapons go riding splendidly into battle on horseback, star actors who withdraw after a single hit.

Their defence goes up during Fever strikes, and they can deal consectutive damage to any enemy they touch.

They're extremely weak when not in Fever, but its easy to get dependant on them. They're the best damage dealers of the Patapon army.

Dekapon AbilitiesEdit

Born of a sudden mutation, these giant Dekapons can wreak havoc on the front lines.

Dekapon Abilities

Their NOSHINOSHIZUGAN from PON CHAKA will shake the earth to send 

enemies tumbling.

They're extremely heavy, and won't be knocked back, and they combine extraordinarily high offence and defence. They're the greatest attackers among the Patapon army.

Megapon AbilitiesEdit

Patapons blessed with beauty, Megapons dazzle the souls of enemies.

Their flute music drifts on the wind to defeat crowds of enemies at once.

They have low HP so are easy to wound fatally, but you can render them completely powerless by using them for ground control in the Patapon army.

Robopon AbilitiesEdit

Robopons are robot-armed warriors born somehow along the evolution process.

They can interchange their attachments on both arms to double the effectiveness of a single piece of equipment!

Their defence is less than the Tatepons, but their structure destroying power is unrivalled. They're the destroyers boasted by the Patapon army.

Mahopon AbilitiesEdit

By waving their magic staves, the Mahopons can call upon varoius magic spells.

Their magic changes based on what staff they equip, and can do anything from area attacks to healing themselves.

However, unless you have powerful staves for them, they can't really do anything at all. They are the great new hope of the Patapon army.

Toripon AbilitiesEdit

Combining the attack power of the Yaripon with the manouverability of the Kibapon, the Toripons fly through the air.

However, freezing or sleep can cause them to fall to earth, and they're easy to mortally wound from close-range attacks.

While in Fever status, they lauch triple shots with their harpoon, sending out unreturnable attacks from the sky.

They're the only air force of the Patapon army.

Watch Boss Preparation MotionsEdit

Tips 20
Each boss's attack has its own unique preparation.

If you watch the boss's preparations you will be able to guess which attack is coming!

So keep your cool, and watch their preparations carefully!

Hatapons are the Army's CentreEdit

Tips 21
Hatapons indicate the centre of the army.

During the Song of PATA PATA, the Hatapon marches with the rest of the army.

When you attack with the Song of PON PON, the Hatapon doesn't move.

Eye expressions changeEdit

Tips 22
When enemies are within attackable range, the Patapons' expressions will change

Watch the eyes to see if the Patapons can attack with the Song of PON PON.

The Patapons' expressions in the HP display at the top left of the screen will change too!

Don't forget EquipmentEdit

Tips 23
When you aquire weapons and helmets, don't forget to equip them!

They'll raise stats like HP and attack power, and can become the key to victory.

You're best bet is to always use triangle: Optimise!

If you're completely wiped outEdit

Tips 24
Even if you lose combat due to the Hatapon falling or your army being wiped out, you'll just be returned to pre-battle preparations and won't receive any penalty.

So don't worry and just continue the game.

Hero ModeEdit

Tips 25
If you get perfect timing on all four of the command drum beats, you'll end up with a pleasing, perfect sound!

If you get Perfect on any song besides Pata Pata while in Fever status, a Hero will take you into Hero Mode!

This has many different effects based on class, so use all the Hero Modes to ride out tough situations!

Meaning of Attack and DefenceEdit

Tips 26
The PON PON attack is so strong, you may forget the CHAKA CHAKA defence.

When the boss starts an attack, make sure to use CHAKA CHAKA when the enemy squadron rallies for a big push, when the grass starts to smoulder, or whenever you sense danger coming.

How to Get More UnitsEdit

Tips 27
Once the Tree of Life Mater becomes available, you can make new units. Just be sure to create more Lv. 1 units before levelling-up and creating Rarepons.

An ancient Patapon saying goes "Better a group of allies than a single hero". Keep those words in mind!

Boss Stagger and Rare ItemsEdit

Tatepon Fever MarchEdit

Tips 29
While in Fever march, Tatepons will link their shields together.

This is a Tatepon-exclusive ability that increases their defence while marching.

Tatepons offer excellent front row support when you're under fierce enemy attack. Use them as tanks to soak up damage.

Yumipon Pre-emptive AttacksEdit

Yumipon Pre-emptive Attacks

Yumipons have the longest attack range out of the whole Patapon army.

When no enemies are on screen, look at the HP display at the upper left. The Yumipons's expressions are the first to change.

If you use PON PON whne this happens, the Yumipons will make a pre-emptive attack.

Spreading Grass FiresEdit

If flaming arrows hit the grass, the grass will catch fire.

Fire will spread to nearby grass, and burn all squadrons, regardless of affiliation.

This can be a double-edged sword, as it can do huge damage to enemies, but you must make sure it doesn't hit your own units.

About Enemy "Kiba" and "Large Armies"Edit

Defend against "Large Armies" and "Kiba" by putting Tatepons in front and using CHAKA CHAKA.

If you have Kibapons in your formation, this becomes even more effective.

The "Tatepon Defence Hidden Kiba Chaka Chaka" is a famous Patapon technique.

Arrows and Wind DirectionEdit

Tips 30
Yumipons' arrows are influenced by the wind.

They'll land closer in a headwind, or further away in a tailwind.

An efficient leader manages attack and defence watching both the wind position and the current enemy position.

Hunting and WeatherEdit

Weather has many important functions.

In particular,it affects the kinds of monster 'that appear while you're hunting. When choosing hunting missions, 'make sure to check weather on the world map.

Apparently there's a rare monster that appears on foggy days on Mt.Gonrok.

The Song of PON PATAEdit

Tips 31
Using CHAKA CHAKA usually reduces the damage from a boss attack.

However, the Hatapon doesn't get a defence boost from CHAKA CHAKA, so he can't defend this way.

Instead, have him use the PON PATA song to simply dodge the boss's attacks!

The Song of PON CHAKAEdit

Tips 32
Use PON CHAKA to charge up your PON PON attack to deal huge damage even without Fever status.

Dekapons and Robopons have some attacks that only PON CHAKA will activate. These ahev very powerful effects.

You can also combine PON CHAKA and CHAKA CHAKA for the best defence available.

The Song of DON DONEdit

Tips 33
Use this command to escape ground attacks like lasers and direct charges!

Use the DON DON CHAKA CHAKA command to get jumps with awesome hang time.

There are some bosses that can hit you even in the air though. So be careful!

The Song of DON CHAKAEdit

Tips 34
If you are frozen or put to sleep, don't just sit around waiting for death...

Instead, use the PATA PON DON CHAKA song to restore yourself.

You won't get status effects while the Song of DON CHAKA is playing, either!

World Map Weather (Advanced)Edit

Tips 35
Hunting missions are weather dependant, you can be waiting for it to change.

So, before entering the obelisk, save, then go through the World Map -> Title -> Load cycle until the weather changes.

This won't work after you enter the obelisk.


Tips 36
On missions such as hunting missions, you'll occasionally find things that look like totem poles.

You know how they have O or X or △ marks on them? Just press the marks shown there in proper rhythm...

Do this four times, and you'll find out why they call it Wep!

Pekkora and PekkorakoEdit

Tips 37
A mother and child that appear on the Bryun Snowfields. They look like cute sheep but are really terrifying monsters.

Tips 38
The Miracle of Rain changes the weather to rain, but that's not all!

It will also remove fog and sandstorm, and make it so lightning doesn't come down in a storm. It can quench fires that have been set and reveal the Centura. Its main use is for crossing the desert but it has many more useful effects.

Brimstone tip
Brimstone Juju

Brimstone Juju raises the attack power of the full Patapon army. Just before attacking

a boss, or after a boss has fled, or whenever you have a bit of time, it's a very useful miracle.

It doesn't just raise the damage you deal, but your stagger rate as well!

Miracle of BlizzardEdit

Calls the blizzard of the Bryun Snowfields to change the weather to snow.

As with Rain, this can clear up your sight in fog or sandstorm,but it won't reveal the


Snow will freeze both enemies and allies, and even send enemy "birds" falling from the sky.

Miracle of TailwindEdit

The effectiveness of Yumipons and Megapons are greatly influenced by the wind.

With Megapons especially, you almost can't use them without a tailwind.

Push enemies' arrows and music back at them and nulify the efffects of bosses who use headwinds.

This ability has a lot of different uses.

Well done on reaching the end!Edit

Well done
The Patapon's journey towards Earthend still has a ways to go!

But the story of Patapon 2 ends here.

Please enjoy the world and don't forget to look for hidden bosses!

It's very good luck to get a glimpse of this powerful dragon!

Beating Kacchindonga is considered one of the game's ultimate goals.

How to beat Donga BossesEdit

Donga bosses
Donga Bosses like Dodonga & Majidonga are weak against knockback.

Send characters with high knockback rates into battle.

To have more chance to get rare items, stagger them whilst they are tumbling.

Centura tip
How to beat Centura Bosses

Centura bosses are very weak against fire.

This is why they only appear in the rain. Their central head

is their weak point. Attacks to this point deal double damage.

The Yaripon Hero's ultimate attack, can reliably deal damage to the weak point.

This is very effective in the early game.

Gaeen tip
How to beat Gaeen Bosses

The extremely top-heavy Gaeen bosses are highly vulnerable to knockback.

However, their hard shells make them resistant to criticals, so be careful!

The damage dealt by a Robopon's stone throw and Yabayari can deal damage reliably.

Manboth tip
How to beat Manboth Bosses

Manboth bosses are weak against fire. Their moves are easily telegraphed,

the Manboth moves! Set him in a squad along with the Tatepons, To make this occurence

less likely.

Garuru tip
How to beat Garuru

Garuru's weak point is fire! They have two forms! The first form you should aim for

tumbling and staggers. Try using fire to lower their HP, tumble and stagger them to have

a higher chance for Rare items! Now, if you only had a tail wind...

Fenicchi tip
How to beat Fenicchi

Fenicchis are weak against ice. If you can get their HP down to around half, they become even easier to freeze.

If you aim to stagger them while they're frozen, you can reliably

obtain Rare Items. But until you get their HP down enough to weaken them, the most 

important thing is to keep on the defensive.

Kunel tip
How to beat Kunel Bosses

Kunels are easy to put to sleep, especially when their HP are low. However, many of the Kunel's attacks

can't be defended with CHAKA CHAKA. If you don't have the PON PATA song, get the unopenable box in the Bryun Snowfields, and beat Dogaeen in the Neogaeen Ruins.

Shookle tip
How to beat Shookle Bosses

Shookle are plants, so they're weak against fire. You should be fine as long as you avoid their Sleeping Gas combo. Avoid falling asleep at all costs... If you let your guard down going for a stagger, don't say we didn't warn you!

Cioking tip
How to beat Ciokings

Ciokings come from volcanoes, so they are weak against ice.

Be careful when they're frozen, though. Only their legs are frozen, but they

can still attack with their claws. Before you get their HP down to half, keep on the

defensive as much as you can.

Canno tip
How to beat Canno Bosses

Chisel down their HP with concentrated knockback attacks. The projectile fired from their mouths

deal light damage, but have a powerful sleep effect. Learn their timing well in order to avoid them.

Defend until you get their HP down to half, then take your chance to counterattack.

only form one contract. Only the God carrying the egg will receive items from that egg so make

sure to carry the eggs in order.

Time tip
Time limits

periods of time. If you run out of time, the mission ends in a loss. Unite the powers of all your units to

clear the goal in the time limit!

How tip
How to get Komupon and Mask
