Vermillion Coronatus, one of the many Coronatus battleships

The Coronatus are recurring bosses in the Darius series, usually appearing as final bosses. The Coronatus are flagships of the Belser, acting as commander ships and, much like many of their battleships, are based in the original Thiima battleship. They are all shaped after a seahorse.

The Coronatus are fast, versatile ships, having various weapons hidden in their body. The head is their weak spot. Their tail can be used as both offense and defense, being able to deflect attacks and to redirect the Coronatus own attacks. All of this comes at the cost of low defense and durability, as they can be taken down easier than other commanding ships.
