"The Big Ugly Thing" or simply "Big Ugly" is a boss enemy in Arknights. It is the main boss of The Great Chief Returns.

A rebuilt Big Ugly named "Raging Ironhide" also appears as the walker/mech which takes Eunectes' place when her Skill-Eunectes3.png Iron Will is active.

Enemy description
Zumama's magnum opus, a massive mechanical monster piloted by the High Priest. It can strike both in melee range and from a distance, capable of easily destroying Giant Mushrooms and Stumps. Normal engineers cannot even fathom how a machine slapped together haphazardly like this even move, but move it indeed does.

Overview

A massive mechanical monstrosity, driven by the High Priest. Able to destroy Wooden Stumps, and will eject the driver and self-destruct after being destroyed.

Big Ugly boasts very high HP and DEF, though its ATK is sub-par and its RES are on the lower end. In addition, Big Ugly has both a melee and ranged attack, as well as various abilities to demonstrate the creation's capabilities:

  • When not blocked, Big Ugly fires its cannon from a medium range at the target which deals splash damage affecting friendly units in the surrounding tiles to the target.
  • When blocked, Big Ugly strikes at the blocking friendly unit with its buzzsaw, which deals 3× (3.5× at Level 1) damage.
  • Destroys a Giant Mushroom or Stump on a radius of 1.8 tiles around the Big Ugly with the buzzsaw, prioritizing the one closest to its position, with a cooldown of 30 seconds. If a Giant Mushroom is destroyed this way, the Stump that would appear in its place will be destroyed as well.
  • When its HP reaches 0, Big Ugly ignites and blows up in a massive explosion after a delay of 2.17 seconds, dealing Physical damage equal to 150% of its ATK to friendly units in a radius of 3 tiles around it and Stuns them for 16 seconds (25 seconds at Level 1). After the explosion, the High Priest will be forced out of Big Ugly (who is invulnerable until he recovers in 10 seconds) and moves along its path.
    • The High Priest has the same HP as Big Ugly but with 1200 (1700 at Level 1) DEF, 50 (60 at Level 1) RES, and a speed of 1.3 tiles/second. He also does not attack, cannot be blocked, and takes 1300 True damage every second.
