Juggernaut (ジャガーノート, Colossus in the original game) is the Fifth stratum boss in Etrian Odyssey II: Heroes of Lagaard and its remake. He is fought on 23F (A Crazed Black Beast).

This creature is the Overlord's guardian, his last stand against the heroes. He is one of the Overlord's creations, and one of the strongest ones. He was living somewhere in the labyrinth, but was relocated by Overlord, in order to guard his castle, leading his army against the heroes. He is said to have been an veteran explorer when still human. In Story Mode, after listening to the party's desire to destroy the Calamity, the Overlord pits the party against the Juggernaut as a means for them to prove their strength, and to determine whether they are worthy to meet him.

This absurdly powerful beast is possibly the strongest foe the heroes will face during their journey. This giant behemoth somewhat resembles a cross between a dragon and a bull, with red mane. big horns and spikes coming out of its body and a spiked tail. When attacking, he doesn't follow a real pattern, it simply goes berserk until nothing stands against it, which, not surprisingly, works extremely well. He can also reflect spells back to the caster and use a putrid breath attack. This is, truly, a formidable opponent.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • A popular fan theory from Etrian Odyssey II: Heroes of Lagaard is that the Juggernaut was, at one point, Hrothgar of Guild Beowulf - this was implied by the similar hairstyle of the two and Juggernaut's impressive natural defenses. This theory was disproved in Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold: The Fafnir Knight, as Hrothgar can survive his initial battle with Chimaera in Story Mode.
  • Before EO2's Untold remake, the Juggernaut was speculated to have been one of the Overlord's closest friends.
