SummonMegaera
"The goddess of vengeance."

SummonIconMegaera Megaera is a Summon sequence of the Mars element found only in Golden Sun: The Lost Age and Golden Sun: Dark Dawn . When one Mars Djinni and one Jupiter Djinni are on standby, and Megaera’s Summon Tablet has been collected, the Megaera Summon sequence can be activated. It resembles a pair of large swords landing into the ground on either side of the enemy party, then a giant red whirlwind engulfs the enemy party for a moment before Megaera herself, a young goddess with angel wings and a pair of large swords, emerges from the whirlwind and both disappear.

Megaera has a base Mars power of 40 and also does additional damage equivalent to 6% of the enemy’s maximum HP. In addition, all current battling Adepts have their attack ratings increased by 12.5%. Megaera, however, is not automatically summonable once one collects the required Djinn. Megaera can only be summoned once the Summon Tablet containing the sequence has been found and collected in Osenia Cavern, located in between Mikasalla and Air’s Rock. The Scoop Psynergy is required to be solved in order to get to the tablet.

Megaera is among Zagan (Venus), Flora (Jupiter), and Moloch (Mercury) as a Summon sequence that can be used as a “placeholder” summon for more powerful “traditional” summons, in this case for Kirin because Megaera can be attained and used before one can summon Kirin with two Mars Djinn. Megaera is rarely used at all, though; her power rating is only 2/3rd that of Kirin, and since both Megaera and the second Mars Djinni used for summoning Kirin can be acquired at the same time once the Scoop Psynergy is earned, most would rather opt to just use Kirin for the increased summon power. Megaera’s additional effect of giving the party a physical attack boost of 12.5%, up to a maximum of 50%, is what is meant to make Megaera a viable alternative to Kirin. Megaera can therefore be viewed as a slight Mars attack combined with the effect of the High Impact Psynergy, and since High Impact is not learnable until level 22, Megaera functions as a good replacement for that purpose. Like Zagan, though, Megaera quickly becomes underpowered in the grand scheme of things.

In Golden Sun: Dark DawnEdit

MegaeraIGN

A summon resembling Megaera in every way except for color scheme.

Megaera returns in Golden Sun: Dark Dawn, becoming available to summon once the tablet is collected. Her summoning conditions and effect remain the same, but her appearance is visibly altered, now featuring blood-red wings and four swords instead of two. Her summoning sequence is also heavily altered, as she now uses the swords as remote weapons to form a magic circle around the targets which erupts in a violent explosion.

Cultural AllusionsEdit

In mythology, Megaera was one of the three Erinyes, goddesses of vengeance who pursue their targets relentlessly. One of her sisters is referenced in the Golden Sun weapons, Tisiphone Edge.
