BullhornEncyclopedia.png

The Bullhorn (ふしぎなメガホン Mysterious Megaphone) is an infinitely reusable item, which only can be obtained once in the game, which is from a present in Queen Mary's Castle. When used in-battle, the one using it will shout "Your mother is calling for you!" to one of the opponents, which can result in one of two stat-affecting changes; it either decreases the enemy's fight by making it believe what was said, or increases its offense by failing with convincing it, and thus making it angry.

The Hippie is the only enemy capable of using this item.
