Hello everyone and welcome to my 127th analysis, this time featuring Krugbo.
Overview: Krugbo is a good attacker, possessing an impressive Base 3575 Strength along with high Base Powered moves and Abomination which gives him immunity to Possession, Bleeding and Nightmares, the first of which is the most crucial. He also has a move to completely counter Stamina Drain and another move that applies Mega Possession, should you run it. However, his Base Speed is not very good these days, and he might sometimes be cheesed by things like Taunt + Dodge Area or wacky buffs/debuffs since he has no status effect control or Trait Disables.
-Great Sanity Check
-Unstoppable Ritual/Eldritch Possession
Runes: 2 Strength 1 Speed/2 Speed 1 Strength
Mutant Rune options: Strength&Life, Speed&Life
Relics: Masks and Traps
Eldritch Stamina is Krugbo's weapon against the extremely common Stamina Drain: it costs 0 Stamina, restores 100% of Krugbo's Stamina and gives him an extra turn, (fun fact: when this monster was first revealed, this move was said to give him Double Damage as well. That would have put Krugbo in a WHOLE different league) essentially countering said status. Great Sanity Check is Krugbo's strongest AOE move with the golden 45 Base Power along with Nightmares. Outer Impact is unresisted and hits extremely hard with 70 Base Power. Lastly, Unstoppable Ritual is almost always the choice, since the move has a solid 60 Base Power which, when combined with the Freeze Immunity it gives, makes it very valuable. However, in specific cases, you can use Eldritch Possession against a key monster on the enemy team - this can be done if the enemy has no Freezers and a low number of debuff controllers, for example.
2 Strength 1 Speed is the standard for any attacker, but if you're using Eldritch Possession, 2 Speed 1 Strength can allow you to outspeed faster 1 Speed monsters, of which there are many. Life Mutations are the only useful Mutations on him.
