beating the final boss (SPOILERS)

So I'm at the part where you have to fight LSP. I'm not very good at shooters so I keep running out of HP at the part where she starts shooting around 5 stars at a time.

How much longer do I have to fight her after the "5 stars" point? Maybe if I knew how long the battle takes and/or how roughly how much HP she has, I'll be able to outlast her better.

I'm not TOO sure, but I think she has about 2500HP in normal and 5000 in NG+. Since Rainicorn's attack always does 25 damage, it means 100 hits (200 NG+).

The problem is that if the stars hit ANYWHERE on Rainicorn (even the part behind Finn and Jake) you'll still take damage. You can't use items either.

Just keep trying, you'll get the hang of it eventually. In NG+ I've beaten her 3 or 4 times and I still can't do it without losing less than 3 full hearts.

I just beat her yay! Turns out beating her wasn't very far past the point where she shoots 5 stars.

If I remember correctly, LSP moves in this order:
1. up and down - slow
2. 2-3 stars at a time
3. up and down - fast
4. 4-5 stars at a time
5. up and down - fast
6. defeated!

I think she changes it up a bit as you get her lower. I know she moves to the middle of the screen at some point.

I've never lost to her before so I didn't know that there's essentially a "checkpoint" when you start the battle. That's a nice touch.
