    Section 2 - The Bosses [AAAD]
    ----------------------
    2.01 - Nitros [AAAE]
    ---
    a - @ Bomber Star
    
    The first battle against Nitros will not challenge you very much. His attack
    pattern mainly consists of him charging at you, and shooting lasers out of the
    arena floor. Simply dodge his attacks while pelting him with bombs.
    
    b - @ Primus Star
    
    The second Nitros battle is a bit more difficult, due to spinning discs that
    float around the arena. Otherwise, his attacks are identical to the first
    battle. By eliminating the discs, the battle will prove to be no more
    challenging than before.
    
    c - @ Kanatia Star
    
    The third battle against Nitros is no more difficult than before, but will take
    longer due to Nitros being surrounded by a protective shield. To remove it, you
    must destroy the three generators slowly floating around the arena. It only
    takes one direct bomb blast to destroy each.
    
    d - @ Mazone Star
    
    Your fourth battle against Nitros introduces some new attacks. The first, and
    most dangerous, are flaming columns that shoot up out of the floor at random
    intervals. However, during these outbursts, Nitros pauses near one of the
    columns, setting up a very easy target for Bomberman. Nitros now drops a line of
    five red bombs at random locations. Red bombs are more powerful than standard
    bombs, but you can detonate them prematurely by hitting them with your own
    bombs. Finally, Nitros's speed is also much quicker than before, making your
    timing even more critical. As always, Nitros is easy to dodge; it's the lasers
    that you must have caution for.
    
    e - @ Garaden Star
    
    The final battle against Nitros pulls out all the stops. All the traps and
    attacks from prior battles will rear their ugly heads here. In addition, Nitros
    has also learned teleportation, making it very easy for him to dodge your bombs.
    Because Nitros takes more hits than usual to be finally go down once and for
    all, you'll want to make extensive use of the Rolling Bomb attack. The larger
    spray from the bombs is also ideal for destroying the rows of red bombs that
    Nitros will set up as traps.
    
    2.02 - Endol [AAAF]
    ---
    a - @ Bomber Star
    
    The first of the "Big Four," Endol is a crazed humanoid with a love of
    electricity. The battle has two stages. In the first stage, you must jump over
    circling electrical bolts while pelting Endol with bombs. After about five hits
    or so, the second stage of the battle will ensue, where Endol walks around the
    arena and tries to hit you with big bolts of lightning. But because he is so
    slow, it's very easy to hit him on the tail, where he is vulnerable. It only
    takes about five hits to bring him down... for now.
    
    b - @ Garaden Star
    
    While Endol himself is no more challenging than he was at Bomber Star, the arena
    that you battle him in makes this battle tough. It is covered in water, and
    Endol's electrical attacks are stronger and have a longer range. If they hit the
    water, the entire area will be covered in electricity, so be sure to stay in the
    air! Since Endol moves faster than before, you'll want to use the Rolling Bomb
    attack to ensure you can hit his tail, which is still his weak point.
    
    2.03 - Baruda [AAAG]
    ---
    a - @ Primus Star
    
    This battle takes place in the air, using the Bomber Copter. Baruda has a
    piercing laser on his front side and poisonous gas bubbles that shoot from his
    backside. Stay above Baruda and drop bombs onto his face. You will know when he
    is about to fire his piercing laser because he will swell his body up. This
    makes avoiding the attacks pretty easy.
    
    b - @ Garaden Star
    
    The rematch with Baruda is much more treacherous. For starters, the platform you
    battle on is full of holes and very small. Secondly, you can't use the Bomber
    Compter, which means Baruda's piercing laser is much more accurate, and he can
    also charge at you with a fast peck attack. It is when he attempts to charge at
    you that he leaves himself open for several easy shots. It only takes about 15
    well placed bombs to clip this bird's wings for good.
    
    2.04 - Bolban [AAAH]
    ---
    a - @ Kanatia Star
    
    Bolban is an evil sphinx that rules over the Kanatia Shrine. He has quite a few
    attacks at his disposal, including dropping a barrage of bricks, launching a
    tornado from his mouth and a jumping attack. He has two vulnerable spots,
    although they are active at different points in the battle. In the first half,
    you must rid Bolban of the shield guarding the jewel on his head, his weak
    point. Do this by eliminating the transmitters on either side of his shoulders.
    Once they are gone, attack the jewel. After enough hits, he will begin to drop
    massive amounts of bricks, which do serious damage. His weak point also moves to
    his tail, so you must be able to get behind him and hit the tail. The Rolling
    Bomb attack will come in handy here.
    
    b - @ Garaden Star
    
    Arguably, the rematch with Bolban is actually easier, because it's far more
    straightforward. His only weak spot, the jewel on his head, is unguarded at all
    times, and you need not worry about falling bricks or tornado breath. However,
    the linear arena is underwater, and you must battle Bolban with your Bomber
    Marine. However, the battle is easily won by simply hitting Bolban with
    everything you've got. Your torpedos pack such a large punch that all his
    attacks will be easily destroyed. However, your tornadoes pack nasty splash
    damage which can hurt you, so do take caution.
    
    2.05 - Natia [AAAI]
    ----
    a - @ Mazone Star
    
    Natia is the toughest of the "Big Four" bosses. She battles you on a sloping
    rectangular platform hovering over lava. Ironically, the battle isn't so much
    against her as it is against her pet, Mecha-Cronus. She will hover around the
    battlefield and mostly leave you alone. So, ignore her. Attack Cronus's eye
    whenever it faces you. When you can't attack Cronus, it will be busy launching
    missiles at you. Run in circles so the missiles hit into each other and explode.
    Cronus's only other attack consists of a searing laser coming from its eye. Use
    this to your advantage and hit the eye. After about eight or nine bombs, Cronus
    will explode.
    
    However, you aren't done yet. Natia hopes down onto the platform and battles you
    directly. She is quick, and will hit you with knives and whips. However, she is
    vulnerable at all times, so just throw bombs at her until she gives up. This
    part of the battle is pretty easy, and it only takes about seven bombs.
    
    b - @ Garaden Star
    
    In the rematch, you will battle two Natia. Yes, she has managed to clone
    herself. One Natia uses a whip and the other throws knives. All the while,
    miniature Cronus will fall from the sky, but they do little, if any, damage. I
    personally find the Natia throwing knives more dangerous, so eliminate her
    first. Once again, she will be vulnerable at all times, making the most
    dangerous part of this battle the platform. It's very small and easy to fall
    off, so watch your step! Once you defeat one of the Natia, the other will either
    have a whip with longer range or will throw many more knives at once. Just keep
    at it until she goes down for good.
    
    2.06 - Evil Bomber [AAAJ]
    ----
    a - @ Gossick Star
    
    As it turns out, Evil Bomber is the real brains behind all the trouble that's
    been happening. Luckily, he isn't too difficult. The battle is fairly similar to
    the second face-off with Baruda. He will fly around, and occasionally swoop in.
    When he does, hit him with a bomb. And that's pretty much it. All you have to do
    beyond that is avoid his attacks, which consist of razor-like feathers and
    sudden changes in direction that may catch you off-guard. The worst part of this
    battle is the endurance. Evil Bomber takes a good 10-15 bombs before he will go
    down.
