|Type of Character||Enemy|
A Magician (マジシャン) is an enemy that occasionally appears when breaking open a chest. This enemy fires a small round projectile surrounded with very small star-shaped objects in a circular pattern, which can be a major inconvenience when in the middle of battle, as it can temporarily transform the player into a helpless entity such as a baby, old man, village girl or frog, which can get the character killed.
When transformed, Arthur usually can't double jump or attack. In Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts, the only form that retains the double-jumping ability is the bee, whereas the worst possible form one can get turned into is a baby, as he is slow, gets briefly stunned after every jump and can't attack.
