Behind the scenes information

The Hexaquin is the first boss in Ty the Tasmanian Tiger 3: Night of the Quinkan. It is a large Quinkan with six legs (hence the name), a tall spiked head, black skin with two glowing purple eyes with little definition to the rest of its body. It has the ability to split itself in two and fire lasers from in between it's body segments.When it dies, it's corpse stays behind.


He guards a gate Ty needs to get through.


  1. The first stage of the fight, all Ty can do is run away from the Hexaquin. When he runs through an open doorway on the path, wait for the Hexoquin to come through the open door and hit the button next to it to drop the door on the Hexaquin. Repeat until the next stage.
  2. The second stage, avoid the rocks being spit. When the Hexaquin splits, it will shoot a laser between the halves. Jump over the laser until it disappears, then hit one of the halves. The Hexaquin will reform and repeat.
  3. The final stage, the Hexaquin will try to stomp on Ty, creating a shockwave. It will then split in half again and they will spit rocks. When they stop, hit one of the halves. Repeat until the end.

Any Stone combination will work in this fight.


  • The Hexaquin closely resembles the titular final boss from the Metroid Prime game.
