Dysmorphia is a boss encountered in Fear & Hunger 2: Termina. If not dealt with properly, Samarie will turn into Dysmorphia due to Moonscorch on Day 1 Evening.

Lore

In Samarie's moonscorched state, she assumes the form of a towering humanoid figure, whose skin undergoes a profound metamorphosis, functioning as protective armor. The skin from her face has been meticulously peeled off and stretched onto a rim encircling her head, resulting in the loss of one of her eyes. This rim takes on a resemblance to a macabre halo. With the absence of skin, her teeth are prominently exposed, revealing a smile-like expression that seems fixed on her face.

As the word dysmorphia reflects a mental health condition centered around excessive self-consciousness about physical flaws, her moonscorched form could symbolize her intense self-loathing, perceiving the monstrous appearance as a distorted "perfect form" in contrast to her true self. Her repeated claims of being "radiating" support this interpretation, suggesting she believes her transformed state exudes a perceived ideal version of herself, despite its grotesque nature.

Location

Can be found in the Rher dimension in the Church of Alll-mer, accessible through the pre-drawn sigil in the church's basement.

If spoken to after Day 1 Morning, she will transform into Dysmorphia after a short conversation. If Marina is being played as or is in the party, her dialogue will be longer and different.

On Day 3 Evening, Samarie will moonscorch and turn into Dysmorphia.

Strategy

Fear & Hunger Mode

Dysmorphia requires a decent amount of preparation before the fight starts - it is recommended to get extra turns to take her out faster by reaching 16 agility or by using Pep pills, and getting as much otherworldly damage resistance as possible to survive her devastating Hurting spell, using armor like Yellow mage robes, a Death mask and/or a Soul devour necklace. Using a Purifying talisman before the fight will also give a huge boost to otherwordly resistance, if you're unable to get any of these other equips or if you want to absolutely avoid dying. Limb protection accessories and the Beheaded wizard are also very good if you're able to get them.

The most efficient strategy to kill Dysmorphia is by having the Diplomacy skill, which will make Dysmorphia hesitate and skip 2 turns at the very start of the battle when persuaded. If you have more than 1 party member, extra turns, and/or any relatively good piercing weapon like an Iron spear or Rifle, then you can attack the head several times (since it has very little evasion) - this will not remove her hesitation on the arms so you will be safe focusing on the head.

  • The best ways to deal damage against Dysmorphia are Otherworldly skills or weapons like Black orb and Blood sword, as she takes 20% more Otherworldly damage. If she happens to use Necromancy, the ghouls can be dealt with quickly using Fire damage.
  • The best skills to use against Dysmorphia are Diplomacy and Mischief of rats, to make her skip turns.
  • The cheapest way to kill Dysmorphia is by having multiple party members equipped with weapons that stun like Meat mallet, Pipe wrench and Rusty pipe and then going all out on the arms.

Masoχ-S/M Mode

In Masoχ-S/M mode Dysmorphia is the hardest moonscorched contestant to fight, and it's best to leave her for the end game until you have good skills that can counter her like Diplomacy, Black orb, Mischief of rats and/or spice forge. Double turns, limb protection, Otherwordly resistance, good armor and most importantly Ghouls are a must in this fight. If you don't meet these requirements it's better to leave her and return when stronger, as even just one cast of Hurting will inflict bleeding, limb loss, and take out most of your health.

Alternatively, if playing as Marina, it is actually possible for Samarie to appear in Masoχ-S/M mode when sleeping at the Mayor's Manor, Book Store or Abandoned House. She will interrupt Marina while sleeping in these locations (which will also stop time advancing, preventing moonscorch), and she can be fought here as a human. As Samarie is generally much easier to deal with than Dysmorphia in this mode, it is strongly advised to deal with her in this way whenever playing through Masoχ-S/M as Marina.

Trivia

  • Dysmorphia, also known as body dysmporhpic disorder (BDD), or more simply body dysmorphia, is a mental disorder characterized by immense, obsessive dissatisfaction with ones own body, often to such a degree that flaws may even be imagined, rather than actual.
    • This could be in part due to Samarie's own frailty, with her seeing her own body as something weak or disgusting, leading to said dissatisfaction.
  • Dysmorphia's head vaguely resembles a radiating star in shape, similar to Logic.
    • This may be due in part to them both being alternate forms of Radiant Soul bearing humans, being Samarie and Reila respectively.
