The first dragon that's ever stood up against the dragon chief, Nine Spirit, who was the former ruler over Minar Forest. Horntail assembled an army of evil dragons to create an evil force that instigated the historically-known Dragon War. Horntail seemed to be the more powerful one at the beginning, but Nine Spirit's longstanding experience and wisdom as a leader seemed to overpower Horntail's inexperience. In the end, Horntail broke the Pact between the dragons and Halflings and attacked the Halflings' village, stealing the egg of Nine Spirit which they were protecting. This was a crime that no dragon known as the guardian of order should have committed. Ultimately, Horntail overthrew the reign of Nine Spirit, and the forest was conquered by the demonic servants of Horntail. Since then, no traces of true, honorable dragons could be found in the forest. Horntail, who has three heads and, subsequently, three different minds, is currently hiding in a cave to heal his wounds, and plotting to rule the regions even past Leafre using the egg of Nine Spirit.
Horntail is one of the strongest boss monsters in Maplestory and is the final boss of the Riprey Party Quest
- The fight is divided into 3 parts:
The Full Body
- The final dragon has multiple body parts, each with their own stats and abilities, much like the first part of the Zakum fight.
- The parts include:
- Horntail's/Horned Tail's/Soul Tail's Left Hand
- Horntail's/Horned Tail's/Soul Tail's Right Hand
- Horntail's/Horned Tail's/Soul Tail's Legs
- Horntail's/Horned Tail's/Soul Tail's Wings
- Horntail's/Horned Tail's/Soul Tail's Tails
- Horntail's/Horned Tail's/Soul Tail's Head A
- Horntail's/Horned Tail's/Soul Tail's Head B
- Horntail's/Horned Tail's/Soul Tail's Head C
- Only a handfull of people have managed to kill this monster. When a party does manage to kill it, a message is sent to all players in the current world saying, "To the crew that have finally conquered Horned Tail after numerous attempts. I salute thee! You are the true heroes of Leafre!!"
