- "Guardian of an immortal pharaoh."
Ramses is a Summon sequence of the Venus element. When two Djinn of the Venus Element are on standby, the Ramses Summon sequence can be activated. It resembles an animated monument styled as an Egyptain pharoah raining down boulders onto the enemy and then launching its right fist into them in an explosion.
Ramses has a base Venus power of 60 and also does additional damage equivalent to 6% of the enemy’s maximum HP. Ramses is exactly the equivalent to two usages of the Venus summon sequence, with no actual bonus to put it ahead of Venus aside from using the equivalent of two Venus summons in one turn.
The desert background seen in the Ramses summon sequence is unused anywhere else in the original Golden Sun. In The Lost Age, however, it is also used in overworld battles in the desert area in the northern part of the continent Hesperia.
Ramses reappears in Golden Sun: Dark Dawn. Its summoning conditions and effect remain the same as before, though its appearance and summon animation have been altered to feature Ramses bursting out from within a pyramid. This version of Ramses also features a gold faceplate that slides over its mummy-like face during the attack animation.
