"Free" is a boss enemy in Arknights. It is the main boss of Who is Real.

Enemy description
A monster drawn by Dusk. It has a commanding presence and chilling arrogance, as though taking a page out of its master's book. "The virid beasts. Like range on range. Eleven told. In moon, smoke-flow."

Overview

A monster painted by Dusk. "Weft and Warp": shift Hui and Ming of allies. "Break the Chains": If the shield is not yet broken, deal massive ranged damage.

An ominous and unforgiving draconic Ink Spirit reflecting Dusk's pride, Free is very durable, boasting sheer HP and defenses to back up its respectable ranged Arts attacks. In addition to being subject to the Hui and Ming mechanic as with other Ink Spirit enemies, Free has several other tricks up its sleeve to make it more dangerous:

  • Free starts with the Ming attribute.
  • Weft and Warp: Attacks the closest friendly unit from Free's position who will be marked by an ink swirl until Free is defeated with a cross-shaped ink burst (similar to the Rat King's Singing Sands) dealing Arts damage equal to its ATK to the target and friendlies in the two adjacent tiles to the target, and switches the attribute of Marks of Hui and Ming caught in its wake. Weft and Warp has a cooldown of 15 seconds from when Free spawns and 30 seconds afterward.
  • Break the Chains: Free protects itself with a barrier that absorbs 7500 (10500 at Level 1) Physical and Arts damage, and makes it cannot be shifted, but stops it from moving and attacking for 15 seconds (10 seconds at Level 1); if Break the Chains is not destroyed within said timeframe, Free will release a burst that deals Arts damage equal to 600% of its ATK to friendlies in a radius of 3 tiles around it. Break the Chains has a cooldown of 30 seconds (50 seconds at Level 1) from when Free spawns and 70 seconds afterwards, but Free will only use it if at least one friendly unit is within the burst radius.
  • When Free's HP reaches 0 for the first time, it will survive with 1 HP and revives itself by fully restoring its HP over 5 seconds, during which Free is invulnerable and disabled. Once revived, Free enters the second phase (indicated by a red aura around it) with the following properties:
    • Invulnerable for 10 seconds, indicated by a yellow aura surrounding Free.
    • Free's attribute is switched.
    • ATK increased by 5%.
    • Free's attacks can hit two targets within range at once; if there is only one target, it will attack them twice.
    • Free will use Weft and Warp against both the closest and the furthest friendly unit from its position at the same time.
    • Break the Chains' damage absorption is increased to 9000 (12000 at Level 1), the burst damage is increased to 800% of Free's ATK, and it will use Break the Chains 40 seconds (60 seconds at Level 1) after entering the second phase.
