Flip. Charge into an adjacent creature and flip them over your head. Leave Votices on both departed tiles.
Ultimate – Summon The Kraken. Summon a Kraken on a tile destroying it and bouncing everyone adjacent away. Anything on the targeted tile is devoured.
Auro Extended Universe – Beta Monsters
New Creature type
Elemental Motes – Elemental Motes fly slowly towards Auro before exploding with a unique elemental effect. Auro can bump them to push them away before their elemental explosion occurs. When an Elemental Mote spawns in it brings with it an elemental effect that it leaves that tile.
Gusty Mote (Silver+): Bounces everyone adjacent away. Spawns on a Vortex.
Icey Mote (Gold+): Freezes everyone adjacent, and Freezes all adjacent tiles. Spawns on a permanently Frozen tile
Flaming Mote (Platinum+): Applies Smokey Flavour to everyone adjacent, and destroys its tile. Spawns on a Flame.
Zappy Mote (Platinum+): Applies 2 Static Charges to everyone adjacent.
Zappy Bat (Platinum+): On bite, these bats apply 1 Static Charge to Auro, and teleports to a random tile 3 tiles away from Auro.
Flaming Lich (Gold+): Similar to other Liches, but applies Smokey Flavour to Auro based. Also leaves behind Flames, instead of vortices when bumped.
Zappy Lich (Platinum+): This liches attack applies 1 Static Charge to Auro. But it can use this ability whenever Auro casts a spell in its range, provided its ability isn’t on cooldown.
Gusty Lich (Platinum+): Similar to other Liches, but bounces Auro based on their relative position/direction, leaving a Vortex on Auro’s old tile.
Enraged Yeti (Platinum+): Spell Immune and Immovable creature that will deal 1 damage, Freeze you, and throw you over its head if it gets in range. It will Freeze and throw any creature bumped into it over its head as well. If you manage to burn, or drown it, it gets faster and angrier.
Cursed Vargas & Cursey Bat (GrandMaster+): A seemingly normal bat that if defeated will transform into a Cursed Vargas. Cursed Vargas has a dash-suplex combo, so keep your distance, or lure him to dangerous terrain.
Devilish Trickster (GrandMaster+): Like other Tricksters they can swap places with you, but Devilish Tricksters swap with you when you try to cast a spell. Your spell still occurs, but now you might be the target. Unbumpable – Devilish Tricksters can always swap places with you even if you ever try to bump them.
[Defunct] Furry Yeti: Spell Immune and Immovable creature that will deal 1 damage, freeze you, and throw you over its head if it gets in range. It will freeze and throw any creature bumped into it over its head as well. If you manage to burn, or drown it, it gets faster, but loses its defenses.
