Parthenon (パルテノン神殿 Parutenon shinden) is the 15th sub-chapter in Stories of Legend. It is available in ★, ★★, ★★★ and ★★★★ difficulty modes.
This is where the true difficulty of Stories of Legend finally starts to rear its ugly head. The sub-chapters after this are devillishly hard. The hardest stage in this sub-chapter is Labyrinth of Hades, because it has a Kory and Bun Bun Black. In Labyrinth of Hades you have to meatshield sparingly until Kory is dead; normally, you should meatshield because of Bun Bun Black destroying your front line, but you also shouldn't meatshield because of Kory producing wave attacks.
This sub-chapter introduces two new enemies:
- Metal One Horn: A Metal-type variant of One Horn, with insanely fast attacks, slightly longer range and an extremely small increase in speed (One Horn has 3, Metal One Horn has 4).
- Bun Bun Black: A Black/Floating variant of Teacher Bun Bun with more health and damage than the original, but slower movement.
List of Stages
This sub-chapter contains 6 stages.
