When encountered, Horda Gardia is a giant mechanical droid, shaped like a disco ball with spikes, that fires random bullets at the player. Each of the triangular pieces of it's body and spikes is a target which must be destroyed. After they're destroyed, it turns into a Cranassian Crystal, but continues shooting until the player finally destroys it. It then loses its powers, turns back into a normal Cranassian Crystal and flies off into deep space, ending the first part of the game.
