I'm trying to beat Boss Battles Hard, but practically every single time I get to Pit's Body, he kills me easily. Even if I go in with full health.

I know the drill... Keep the camera on him, dodge his attacks, melee combo him, step back, and repeat. And I have beaten him once or twice here, once even while taking very little damage. But, usually, he'll catch me off-guard and land 3-4 strong hits before I can even get back on my feet. Or, he'll break out of my combo with a dodge or a counterattack, and then hit me with his own melees.

I really hate that they put this boss in here, without transferring powers, weapon mods, anything. It's the one boss I consistently have trouble with, and yet there's nothing I can do about it. The last attempt, I had 3 drinks left and only 8 more battles to go, and then I died. It's just annoying.
What a fuddy duddy.

I think one of your problems might be stepping back. When I fight that douchebag, the only approaching I need to do is the initial; once I knock him down, I attack as soon as he gets back up.

Occasionally, yes, he does hit me with an arrow as he stands, but he doesn't get far, and I'm already in mid-swing by that point, so he inevitably is sent onto his ass again.
An infant sea turtle is actually capable of killing an adult African bull elephant. It does, however, require a substantial amount of surprise.

Huh... I figured that he would get too many invincibility frames while he was getting up for that to work. Well, it's certainly worth a shot!

Maybe I'll play Ch.18 again to try it. I was kind of starting to miss the dog, anyway. :P

Important: do not try to attack him if the arrow icon does not appear above his head.
