There were several changes to this battle in 1.2.158. Please read the spoilers to see what has changed
In this document, I will be making references to several locations and mobs.
- Throne Room (TR) = The place where you fight Pink Bean
- ML or MR = Middle Left or Middle Right (Hawk statues)
- FL or FR = Far Left or Far Right (Scholar statues)
- Ariel (C) = The center statue above Pink Bean. I sometimes call it C for center because Ariel is the center statue.
- Pink Bean (PB) = Duh, the guy you fight. There are two forms of him that I refer to, PB(W) (Weak) and PB(S) (Strong). I'll go into more detail later.
The nature of this battle is not as it seems in many images shown through Insoya so far. Let's have a look at the image that they showed us:
In the TR, you will face a series of six stages, each with increasing difficulty. Here's the order of battle:
STAGE 1: FL PB(W)
STAGE 2: FL PB(W) FR
STAGE 3: FL ML PB(W) FR
STAGE 4: FL ML PB(W) MR FR
STAGE 5: FL(2) ML(2) C PB(W) MR(2) FR(2)
STAGE 6: PB(S)
The (2)'s in Stage 5 is because they get slight upgrades at this stage. I'll go more over this later.
PB(W) refers to the other form of PB. In this form, you cannot hit him and he cannot hit you. All he does is sit on the throne the entire match, taunts you (hilarious animations too), and buffs up the enemies. PB(S) refers to the form of PB with 2.1B HP and does nasty attacks and has 23k touch damage. After you defeat Stage 5, PB(W) disappears in a puff of smoke and reappears in a flash of light and begins letting all hell break loose on you as PB(S).
So, let's go over this as total HP:
STAGE 1: 300M = 300M HP
STAGE 2: 300M + 300M = 600M HP
STAGE 3: 300M + 450M + 300M = 1.05B
STAGE 4: 300M + 450M + 450M + 300M = 1.5B
STAGE 5: 300M + 450M + 600M + 450M + 300M = 2.1B
STAGE 6: 2.1B = 2.1B
Add all that up...
300M + 600M + 1.05B + 1.5B + 2.1B + 2.1B = 7.65B HP
In the following, I won't be giving out pure animations. There are over 1000 frames to go through and well... I don't have a script to make GIFs like that (if only I did).
Pink Bean (W)

Hawk Statue (ML)
