The Gold Mask is one of the four masks in the Graveyard in Yuri's mind in the original Shadow Hearts. During the Europe portion of the game, it will appear as a regular enemy when the Malice meter peaks.
If the player seeks to obtain the good ending, they must defeat the four masks in a certain order (after defeating Albert and Amon in the Nemeton Basement, but before entering The Float).
The Gold Mask must be defeated second.
If the player has obtained the Oath Grail from Joshua in the London Rat's Hideout in London (which also details the order in which the masks must be fought), it will drain the Gold Mask's power when you fight it.
Dark soul waiting for the moment the dark world opens up to the world at large. It represents the harmonixers greed.
A dark soul that represents the harmonixers greed. It lost against the harmonixers consience, but defeat made it stronger.
The Gold Mask can only be damaged by using special skills so make sure that your MP is up to the max on this fight.
Another problem with this mask that it will use the curse Popping Shoot which can cause some problems since the Judgement Ring will somtimes get random bursts of speed.
But if you fight them in order by using the Oath Grail that ability of his will go away. Other than that watch out for the ability strike which is the strongest earth enemy skill. But if you have your level up high than he will be a piece of cake.
"*Pant*, *pant*...You brats!"
Having already been defeated by Yuri, he is pitifully weak and will go down in less than two hits.
As the four masks relate to Tarot cards, the Gold represents Coins (sometimes known as Pentangles), which is the symbol for Earth, as well as having the face of a a lion/wolf/horned creature hybrid.
