The Glowing Mask (in-game name Hohtonaamio) is a rigid body–type enemy that appears in the Magical Temple and The Tower. Like other rigid body enemies, the player and other creatures will collide with it, making it somewhat obtrusive to movement. Despite being relatively easy to dispatch, it can quickly deal a large amount of damage if it gets close. Its bright green eyes and noisy movement make it easy to pick out, so attacking from a distance is recommended.


Hohtonaamio appear as a blueish-grey statue of a mask, with bright green glows trailing from their eyes. The glow, which is visible in darkness, along with the audible noise they make whenever they move, makes them easy to spot even in the darkness of the Magical Temple.


Hohtonaamio are capable of flight, and will patrol their location until encountering the player or other creatures they are hostile towards. They move rather awkwardly and often bump into terrain, but will attempt to approach any creature they target.


When close enough to a target, hohtonaamio will begin firing radial bursts of green plasma shots at a rate of approximately twice per second for as long as the target stays within range. These bursts consist of 8 projectiles, evenly spaced around itself, that will move outwards and rotate in a counter-clockwise direction.


This enemy used to be known as Patsas until the introduction of the new Patsas in version 1.0. At one point in time there were two separate Patsas enemies in the game at once.
