- Takes damage to save time
- Genre: Platform
Mystic Defender is the USA version of the Japanese game "孔雀王2" (Kujaku-Oh Ni, which means "The Peacock King 2"). Except for changing the clothing of the hero and deleting the intro and the names of the stages, everything seems to be the same.

Because Peacock the hero is not a very smart hero, he cannot walk and use his arms at the same time (a common video game character disability). Thus he must jump to be able to use his arms. If he is charging a bigger shot when he lands, he forgets to walk for a few frames, so you cannot charge up a shot too early. It's all very delicate.

This is a 35 second improvement over the previous movie by highness. Much of the improvement comes from an interesting glitch in the last level.

Warning: This movie has been rated PG-13 by the TVRA for Tool-Assisted Violence, Brief Nudity, and Inappropriate Glitch Abuse. Viewer discretion advised.
