Syntax, at the start of the boss fight in Thermal Base

Syntax is one of the antagonist in the Freedom Planet Series. She (or it) is a floating Robotic AI (Artificial Intelligence) who assists Lord Brevon in his schemes, such as brainwashing Prince Dail following the death of his father, the King of Shuigang. Syntax has the ability to change into different forms to help protect Brevon and his assets.

Boss BattleEdit

Spider Mode Edit

Syntax's Spider Mode is the Mid-Boss of Thermal Base. She will convert into this Mode and attack the player in a room with lava walls and spike floors on both sides.

Attacks Edit

  • Lava Cannon: Syntax will walk from one side of the room to the other, sucking lava out the side and firing it at the player,. She can even change the angle of the shot, making the player jump over or crouch under it. This attack can also Stunlock the player.
  • Spike Shot: After breaking off its armor, Syntax will move to a rail and start to grab spikes on the floor to fire below on the left and right sides.

Damage from these attacks are avoidable if the player has either a Fire or Metal Keystone Monitors. After being defeated, Syntax will retreat. Then at the sound of an alarm, a torrent of lava will flow into the area and the player character has to outrun it.

Squid Mode Edit

Syntax's Squid Mode is the Endboss of Thermal Base. Syntax will once again engage the player at the end of this Stage using this Mode. Unlike real squids, this Mode only has two tentacles, instead of the average six to eight.

Attacks Edit

  • Lava Cannon: Like with her Spider Mode, Syntax will suck up Lava an fire it at the player, whether in a full burst or in a rapid fire that inflicts Stunlocks. Also, the lava will heat up the metal flooring, damaging the player if they're standing on it.
  • Spike Balls: After soaking up enough damage, Syntax will descend into the lava, and launches three Spike Balls from the right, left and middle of the room. She will do this twice throughout the Boss Fight.
  • Circular Saw: After being damaged and using the Spike Balls a second time, Syntax will transform into a giant Circular Saw, which will roll around on the edges of the room.

Milla is able to obtain a Water Shield before this fight by digging in the soil underneath the Tao Stone.

Cancer Mode Edit

Syntax's Cancer Mode is the Boss of Schmup Stage, an Extra Stage that takes place before Battle Glacier. Syntax will change into a giant crab-like robot to attack the Holodragon or Shang Mu Tanks.

Attacks Edit

  • Laser Blast: Syntax will fire massive laser blasts from her pincers, tracing the player's height before firing. This attack is easy to avoid if playing as Lilac.
  • Laser Shots: Syntax will spray fire Laser Shots from her pincers at the player character in multiple directions.

Unlike her other modes, Syntax's Cancer Mode has a health meter. Once it's depleted, Syntax will be defeated and the player can then proceed to Battle Glacier.

Morpher Mode Edit

Syntax's Morpher Mode is the Endboss of Final Dreadnought (Round1). Syntax will attack the player with her most powerful mode, which can take on the following forms:

Phase 1 Edit

  • Tank Mode: Syntax will turn into a Tank and shoot a pair of lasers vertically. She will move along the ground and even the ceiling, shooting lasers at the player. This attack is easy to avoid and to attack Syntax whenever she pauses briefly.
  • Train Mode: She will turn into a train and absorbs the laser's energy shooting 3 energy blasts that move right, down, and then left. The attack can be dodged by moving backward and jumping forward.

The same cycle repeats until Syntax has taken quarter damage.

Phase 2 Edit

  • Pogo-Stick Mode: Once she's taken quarter damage, Syntax convert into a Pogo-Stick and jump in all directions, creating shockwaves on the ground. Lilac's Dragon Cyclone can avoid this and hit Syntax.

Phase 3 Edit

  • Circular Saw Mode: Once taken half damage, Syntax will change to Circular Saw, She goes forward, up, backward, down, and forward. Use Lilac's Dragon Cyclone, Carol's Bike Spin or Milla's Puppy Float to avoid this attack.

Phase 4 (Final Phase) Edit

  • Plasma Mode: Once taken maximum damage, Syntax will take her final form, she goes through the right side of the screen, shooting plasma energy balls that move up and down while moving to the left. Moving and jumping are meant to avoid this attack, but Syntax is easily vulnerable to attack while it is in this mode. Alternatively, Milla can reflect the energy balls with a Phantom Block.

When playing as Carol, there is a Gas Can that can be picked up by her before this fight. However, the player may choose to run past the can and fight Syntax on foot. Once defeated, Syntax will get hit and disintegrated by the laser.


Trivia Edit

  • Syntax has sharp spikes on the end of each of her arms, which she possibly used during the brainwashing of Prince Dail.
  • Syntax is one of the villains from the original game to make an appearance in Freedom Planet 2.
