He hides in an underwater city, taking the power of the Water Crystal. Once you make it through the city and find him, he awakens, reveals that he is one of the Four Fiends under Chaos, and promises to make the shrine their tombs. and fights the Light Warriors. After being defeated the heroes release the power of the Water Crystal, helping the city of Onrac return to normal, and the Mermaids that live in the Sunken Shrine to live in peace once again. The Kraken is fought once again on the third basement floor of the Chaos Shrine, where he appears each time the player wishes to proceed to the fourth basement.
