Cygnus is a boss that requires completing a series of prequests in order to unlock and be able to fight the Normal Cygnus boss. There are two versions of the Cygnus boss, Easy and Normal modes. You can only defeat Cygnus once per week despite what mode you choose.

The benefits of defeating Normal Cygnus is that she drops better loot, including in Reboot World a Condensed Power Crystal that sells for 43,000,000 Mesos. She also drops a Soul Shard, which is considered one of the best ones in the game.

Easy Cygnus does not require you to complete the prequest and can be entered by using the boss queue system.
