Mataneko-kone-Magnificat, also known as Rancid the Sergal, is a boss encountered in Fear & Hunger 2: Termina.


Rancid is a native of Vinland who has come to Prehevil for unknown reasons. He is a foul-mouthed creature who appears to be looking for a good fight.


The first encounter with Rancid the Sergal happens in the Altar of the One God, after going through the Mausoleum Alley. He will escape the fight after having his torso or head health depleted, or having one of his arms removed where the player will be rewarded with a Sergal spear.

The second encounter is optional and takes places in a hidden path in the Maiden Forest, where Iki Turso resides albeit now beheaded by Rancid. To initiate the fight the player must interact with Iki Turso's dead body on Day 3, where Rancid will appear and talk to the player before fighting. Killing him will reward the player with another Sergal spear after the battle.

Rancid can also be seen killing a Bobby in a manner similar to an execution in front of the Church of Alll-mer, after which he will quickly jump away from the area.

Fear & Hunger Mode

Rancid can be a challenging foe, even with a full party team, as both of his arms have a lot of health. He has two normal attacks, Spear swing which deals 38-58 slashing damage and has a 15% chance to remove an arm, and Throwing spear which deals 48-72 slashing damage. This can be avoided by destroying an arm or his torso in the first turn, or by stunning his arms. If the player cannot avoid the damage, then it is recommended to equip any armor or accessory that offers immunity from arm loss.

At the end of turn 5 and every 5 turns after that, he will perform a coin flip, which if failed does 38-42 slashing damage to all party members and has an 80% chance to cut arms.

As mentioned above, Rancid will run from the first fight after one of his arms is taken off, meaning the player doesn't need to focus on attacking the head or torso. If the player damaged Rancid's limbs in the first encounter, they will remain damaged in the second encounter.

Battle start

  • Rancid the Sergal: “Mataneko-kone-Magnificat. That is my name. The last name you hear before heads start to roll! My blood is rushing WIIILLLD!”
    • If player is O'saa:
    • You hear voices echoing from the beheaded wizard...
    • Nas'hrah: “This creature is a sergal. Usually they appear more intelligent, but I've heard of cases where madness slowly deteriorates their sanity in certain circumstances. This lunatic must be one of those.”
  • If encountered for the 2nd time:
  • Rancid the Sergal: “Round 2! See this spear? It's the very same that beheaded that half-god over there! What do you reckon it'll do to soft human skin!?”


  • Rancid the Sergal: “Let's howl while we slice each other to pieces! A sergal never backs down from a chance to bask in euphoric mutilation!”
    • Player: [PERSUADE] “I'm not a warrior, there is no challenge to be had here!”
      • Rancid the Sergal: “Not a warrior? With that much begging and pleading you're just a spineless worm! No matter - a warrior or a worm, both falter under my spear. Let's get this over with fast then!” The sergal became reckless. Looks like the beast is trying to finish the fight fast now. (+Reckless)
    • Player: [INTIMIDATE] “I don't deal with animals, but this once I'll put you down.”
      • Rancid the Sergal: “Animal!? ANIMAL!? A bald, testicle looking ape here dares to call me an animal!? That's the first mistake, the last mistake!” The sergal became furious. (+Furious)
      • If repeated:
      • Rancid the Sergal: “Animal...? Preposterous! Filthy hairless monkey!”
    • Player: “I don't want any part in this!”
      • Rancid the Sergal: “Nonsense! You'll feel the blood rushing soon enough! It's intoxicating!”
    • Player: “What are you even?”
      • Rancid the Sergal: “What? I'm from the proud race of sergals of course! We live to die on a battlefield. I do not blame you for not having heard of us. Not many live to tell the tales.”
    • Player: “Let's see how much you enjoy it once we're done here.”
      • Rancid the Sergal: “That's more like it! The blood will spill wild!”
    • If encountered for the 2nd time:
    • Player: [PERSUADE] “You're missing real battlefield at the town!”
      • Rancid the Sergal: “What are you talking about? The town? I don't step inside those filthy human cesspools anymore. I saw enough!”
        • Player: “I thought you were looking for the ultimate challenge?”
          • Rancid the Sergal: “... That so? I say fuck it! Let's get this over with fast then!” The sergal became reckless. Looks like the beast is trying to finish the fight fast now. (+Reckless)
        • Player: “You're missing out on all the battles.”
          • Rancid the Sergal: “... That so? I say fuck it! Let's get this over with fast then!” The sergal became reckless. Looks like the beast is trying to finish the fight fast now. (+Reckless)
  • If player persuaded Sergal:
  • Rancid the Sergal: “Enough talking! Let's get this over with!”

  • The Sergal spears are a reoccurring weapon from the first game and a homage to the Youtuber Neco the Sergal, who was one of the first people to do a full let's-play series of the original Fear & Hunger, and one of the people who first brought the game into popularity.
    • The developer of the game, Orange~, has stated the enemy itself is not based on him.
    • The enemy design may been inspired by the Vilous setting, instead.
  • Due to a bug, throwing Glass shards at his head does not do anything, so the player should use Black smog or throw the shards directly at his arms.
