[BUG & Suggestions] Evil Robot Boss
« on: September 08, 2015, 08:38:06 PM »
Yesterday, I replayed the campaign boss fight VS the MM8 final boss, the Evil Robot.

-Bug report :
Came the moment when the mighty foe casted Giga Thunder Claw and spun and spun and spun. And then there were none : the boss wouldn't stop spinning, making the fight impossible to win. I've replayed the fight several times to make sure I wasn't imagining this and I can now confirm that Evil Robot won't stop spinning with Thunder Claws selected.

-Suggestions :
There are exploitable safe spots in Giga Tornado Hold and Giga Flame Sword.

Giga Tornado Hold : You just have to stay in a corner of the arena as tornados can't reach these corners
Giga Flame Sword : You just have to not "fly". Standing still and not flying up/not holding down the jump key will result in the boss dramatically missing his 4 swings.

These safe spots don't require any effort from the player. They make it too easy to "dodge" these attacks and they don't feel like they were intended to exist in the first place.

Yeah, the thunder claw glitch has happened to me too.

I guess the Giga Tornado Hold/Flame Sword safe spots were made for limitations or to compensate for the oother strong and/or almost unavoidable attacks.

Can confirm all of the above. Especially the Giga Thunder Claw bug.

Spoiler for Hiden:

gif is a bit poor in quality but it's clearly shown here. Also worth noting that I didn't take any damage prior to the attack, so yeah.

I experienced the thunder claw bug several weeks ago and completely forgot to report it here.

Thunder Claw bug was solved a while ago: viewtopic.php?f=26&t=9785.

I'll leave the topic here to see if others have input on the other suggestions.

Personally I think Tornado Hold is fine. It's underwhelming when it's by itself, but when paired with any other Giga attack (Astro Crush and Ice Wave especially) standing in the corner instantly becomes super unsafe. I like the duality when Tornado Hold is paired with other moves, as it makes a dangerous area for most other attacks into a safe reprieve from the twisters; Tornado Hold's "safe spots" help the other attacks become much scarier, in a way.


The Flame Sword one's just dumb.
