In the fifth chapter, the Secret of Evolution has transformed him into a more powerful being: Baalzack (or "Balzack+"). He is occupying the empty Castle Zamoksva. He is very arrogant, and disliked even by his subordinate demons. His intention, he says, is to enhance his body to be even more godlike than Psaro the Manslayer, but he lacks the Armlet of Transmutation which allows him to use the full power of the Secret of Evolution. With the help of the hero, Maya and Meena are able to finally defeat him.

Remakes[edit]

  • In the NES Version, the Ball of Silence in addition to disabling Balzack's magic also changes his coloring. The remakes remove the change in color.
  • In the NES Version, Balzack's sprite through both encounters is the one used for Psaro's Pawn and Master Kung. In the Sony PlayStation and Nintendo DS Versions, he takes the form of a king until the battle begins and then changes to a sprite resembling his battle form.
