Timid creature that frightens away intruders by covering itself in huge clumps of moss.
It's small, but it finds a lot of courage and strength once it covers itself in foliage. And I can understand the desire to camouflage oneself...
Behaviour and Tactics
The Moss Charger hides until the Knight enters its territory. Upon entering it emerges from the ground and charges at the Knight. Upon being hit, the leaves fall away, revealing a small bug inside that will flee to one end of the platform to burrow away, waiting a few moments before re-emerging again, covered in leaves, attempting another charge.
The first hit will only knock the leaves off its body, so it is advised to use a Nail hit and not waste SOUL on the first attack. Afterwards, it flees quickly away from the Knight, so it is best to follow up with a Spell such as Vengeful Spirit or by using the Dash Slash. It is necessary to kill the small bug within as that is the only way to prevent it from re-forming into the bush.
The Knight can hit the Moss Charger just before it reaches the edge of a platform to either throw it into the acid or make the Charger stuck if it lands without enough platform to burrow back into.
