Don't use the new blue puddle yet, because it goes to a boss battle. Instead, go into the Dark Space to heal and save. You can transform into Shadow to do the most damage in the next battle. Freedan is also a good choice because the Dark Friar ability is very effective in the later stage of the battle. Don't go into the battle as Will unless you want a challenge.

When you are ready and have healed up, transformed into your desired form, and saved the game, go out of the Dark Space and use the puddle in front of the hieroglyph room to go to the boss's chamber.

Mummy Queen

During the battle, you can step on a blue puddle to go from the lower floor to the upper floor, and you can jump down to the lower floor from the upper floor.

Hit the mummy queen and she will turn into a blue ghost. Then she will split into eight ghosts that move outward in the compass directions. Be careful to stand in a spot where a ghost won't hit you. Then the ghosts wander around toward you. Use a puddle or jump down to avoid the wandering spirits. Then go back to the queen's level and hit her again when she appears. Avoid the large energy orb that she shoots from her staff. If the queen causes an earthquake, use Aura if you're Shadow, or go to the lower floor to minimize damage.

After you have damaged mummy queen enough, her attack pattern will change. When she splits into eight ghosts, they will no longer move outward in the compass directions, but will instead spin slowly and move around the room. You have to hit the non-flashing ghost in order to make her reappear. If you're Freedan, you can use Dark Friar to quickly get rid of the non-flashing ghost. After hitting the ghost, hit the mummy queen when she reappears. Repeat this until she is gone.

After the battle, watch the cut scene.
