Battle Edit

On their second turn, and every third turn after, they have a 33% chance of using Crypt Dust to turn a KOed party member into a Zombie. Otherwise, they use only normal attacks and their special attack Rib, a stronger attack. Though they know Death and Banish, neither ability exists in its attack script. As with most undead enemies, Fira and Holy are effective against it.

Etymology Edit

Mahadeva means "great God" in Sanskrit. In Hinduism this refers to Shiva. In Buddhism it refers to Gautama Buddha, or to Mahādeva, the founder of the Caitika school of Indian Buddhism, or a literary figure associated with five points of contention in some Theravada works.
