Kraken (クラーケン, Kurāken) is a boss and playable character from the Power Stone series.


Kraken is the penultimate opponent in Power Stone, being fought in his ship, Skullhaven. He is the brutal and cunning captain of the pirate group known as King Octopus and has a large artificial right hand that has a variety of attachments. Even after all his men died, he is feared around the world as the "one-armed man" (片腕の男).

Kraken can be unlocked in the Dreamcast and PSP versions of the game after completing the game with all eight standard characters. In his ending, "Revival!" (リヴァイヴ!), Kraken uses the Power Stone to revive his pirate mates, and they obtain control over the seas, being feared by all sailors.

Kraken doesn't appear in the original Power Stone 2, but he can be unlocked in Power Stone Collection by completing the 1-on-3 mode.

Special Moves

Despite his age, Kraken has high offensive and defensive power, but his movements are somewhat slow. He mainly relies on brutally attacking his opponents or acting slyly. His gun and giant claw give him more range and power, and the claw is big enough to hold a person. His claw can also be replaced by other devices, transforming into a drill when jumping from a pole. In the anime, he has a buccaneer fighting style able to defeat his opponents with one knock out blow.

When transformed, Kraken has a ghost-like appearance. His head becomes a skull, his claw is sharp, and his gun turns into a small cannon. In the anime, he is able to summon wild sea animals from the ocean and waters using the Aqua Stone to attack Falcon and his group.

Power Drive
Skull Gun (スカルガン Sukaru Gan)
Kraken fires cannonballs from his gun. In the anime, he uses this ability during his last stand against Edward Falcon at Aqua Land.
Skull Wire (スカルワイヤー Sukaru Waiyā)
Kraken's claw stretches to catch the opponent and he pulls himself to their position. He also uses this in the anime to ensnare his opponent.
Power Fusion
Skull Vacuum (スカルバキューム Sukaru Bakyūmu)
Kraken's head becomes big and he starts sucking the opponent, chewing the victim.
Skull Soul (スカルソウル Sukaru Souru)
Kraken releases several ghosts from his mouth. He uses this as a desperate move during his last stand against Edward Falcon before the latter defeats him with his Power Rocket and Ayame retrieves the Aqua stone from him.
