In gameplay, the Big Foot Type A carries Gatling Guns, allowing it to shoot high-speed bullets that can travel great distances at Shadow. This enemy can be easily ignored since the player must be in a close range to it to make an attack, although this is not always the case. Like other enemies in the game, the Big Foot Type A automatically walks and attacks without spotting a target. Its walking range is limited though, being less than the Big Foot Type B. It can also fly, but very slowly.
A Big Foot Type A takes nine regular hits with the Homing Attack to be destroyed. It awards 500 points when destroyed and will drop its Gatling Gun as well. Damaging a Big Foot Type A will also fill up the Dark Gauge.
