    Some freaky jellyfish thing...
    Than Q's
    Is that freakin' no good #@$#&%@$&# still kicking your
    Einhander ass?! Is that guy too easy to beat, and you want 
    a REAL challenge? Then you've come to the right place!
    This FAQ is loaded with stratagies, Funny Facts, What they
    do at TimeOut and secrets of the bosses. So get ready to kick some
    huge freaky lookin' robot in it's... Um.. where do you kick
    a robot???
    The Greif
    This is the first "giant" robot you face in the game. It carries 
    a spread cannon, a machine gun and a laser cannon. These 
    can be easily dodged, although the laser cannon is pretty 
    Spread cannon- Turn down your speed (L2) and fly through
    Vulcan cannon- Fly around fast and it will miss you.
    Laser cannon- Wait about 2.5 seconds when it's charging,
                             then fly up
    Funny Facts
    In the openning FMV, you can see that The Greif has a 
    number 20 on it's back. In the game, there is a 03.
    It's guns actually run out of ammo
    At timeout, it flies away.
    If you don't do anything and dodge his bullets, when it
    pulls out the laser cannon, it sounds like it's saying 
    something. (Even though it's part of the music)
    Blow up the bottom half of the greif to get the 3rd S. bonus
    The Drache
    The Drache is the only boss with 2 modes of attack. 1 When
    it is walking and 2 when it's flipped around and walking.
    It has Different gunpods, mines, energy ball, purple lasers
    giant lasers, and spread cannons. (That was a lot!)
    Gunpods- If it's a wasp, fly around slowly. If vulcan fly around
                     quickly. If Juno, destroy it quickly.
    Mines- fly to the upper back corner
    Energy ball- see above
    Purple Lasers- Fly around fast (they're slow)
    Giant [butt] laser- Fly up over the body
    Spread cannon- Turn down speed, fly through. Or fly over the
    If you got the 3rd level bonus, you go to the Blue Drache. If you
    wait awhile, a Juno gunpod will come out of it's back. You know 
    what to do.
    If you have a really powerful weapon like a flash or Riot, you can 
    kill this guy before he flips over. When he is recoilling, shoot the 
    bottom of the head (or is it the body??) Soon a flame will fly off.
    He will be dead by now.
    Funny Facts
    I think the people at Squaresoft got a little distracted and wasn't 
    thinking clearly. Just how does a ROBOT make animal noises???
    (The Drache kinda growls or roars when it dies)
    The lights on the Drache turn red right before it dies.
    Time out- Walking mode- falls forward, lights turn off
                     Assault mode- Lock down with a loud clank!
    One of the fastest bosses in the game. This guy has 2 ramming
    moves and 2 weapon moves. These include jumping, spin 
    around, rockets and various shots.
    Jumping- If you were above him before he prepares himself,
                    he will jump vertically. If not, will jump forward.
    Spinning around- He will get really (the only word that best
                                describes it is) "Itchy". Just go up.
    Rockets- fly around, go near the ground, and they will blow up
    Various Shots- Targeted shot- aims at you then fires. Just move 
                             Random Shots- Turn down speed, fly through 
                                                       them, or go above the body
                              Up to down shots- go above it's body
    Funny facts
    Exactly how does a "car" jump???
    Where are the wheels? Or does it levitate?
    When it is timeout it just speeds away
    Blow up one arm to make it malfunction.
    Blow up the arm thats farthest from the screen and it will 
    malfunction closer to the screen.
    Possibly the biggest boss in the game, but yet it isn't very 
    powerful. The arms can be destroyed easily even with
    your machine gun. The many of it's weapons include
    Flame-thrower, vulcan, shots, blue rings, wasp launcher,
    ship launcher, and special ship launcher (only on hard)
    Flame-thrower- when you see the flame, run!...I mean
                              fly away! 
    Vulcan- fly under the actual gun
    Shots- fly around them
    Blue rings- turn down speed, fly through them, or fly 
                       over/under them
    Wasp launcher- Fly around, then shoot them.
    Ship launcher-  Fly under them when shot, and shoot them
    Special Ship Launcher- (only on hard mode) They fly back
                                           attack you. Lure them foward, fly
                                             behind them and kill!
    Funny facts
    Spinne is the only boss with a completely different name
    or code. Compare PGZ/L-03 (spinne's) To SPK-04 or
    SPKB-03 or SS-01.
    You can say that spinne is thick headed. It's head armor
    is even stronger than hyperion's!!! (Took over 10 shots
    of flash on spinne and 8 on hyperion!!!)
    Timeout- Arms go diangonal and stops
    Looks like a spider to me. But yet spinne means spider.
    Gecko has only one 2 moves that does not involve lasers.
    They are ramming, and mines. The laser ones with 
    2 turrets are Blue lasers, Twin Red lasers, 
    Purple Charging lasers,  and Double Car lasers. The
    ones with one turret are green lasers, homing lasers,
    and the Giant blade.
    Ramming- Stay in the bottom left corner, after it runs
                      up and down 3 or 4 times, go to the right 
                      corner. Then back.
    Mines- Get away from the Gecko
    Blue lasers- they do not aim at you, if it shoots at you,
                        move up or down
    Twin Red lasers- Get away from the middle of the screen
    Purple Charging Lasers- They go up and down, stay back
    Double Car lasers- Destroy the car as fast as possible
    Green lasers- fly around, but don't go back to the same 
    Homing lasers- Fly around slowly
    The Giant Blade- Destroy the red car real quick
    Funny Facts
    The Gecko has the biggest core compared to the body.
    It takes up the whole bottom half! Take a look at the
    Drache! It can hold it's core on that tiny arm.
    The Gecko is the one boss to use another guy to create
    a special attack.
    Timeout-stops before it flies into the vertical tunnel
    This guy's my favorite boss. It proves that cool (and
    dangerous) things come in small packages! It has
    Explosive Claws, Flaming Disks (or "yo-yo's")
    Homing Bombs, Ramming, Blue shots, Red Shots.
    Explosive claws- When the claws explode, go near the
                                 bottom and dodge. Or better yet, go
                                 away from where they hit.
    Flaming Disks- They can oly go so far, Just get far away
                              from them.
    Homing Bombs- Go behind him and the bombs will blow
                                up it's face!
    Ramming- Go to the center of the room and go up.
    Blue Shots- these are pulled down, so just move far away
    Red Shots- these go straight, Turn down speed and dodge
    Funny facts
    After the hexagon thing comes down you can see the 
    Gustav come out of another small room.
    The room tills sometimes because the Gustav is so heavy
    The Gustav uses the small room as an advantage. Since
    most of the attacks have some spread fire, you don't
    have a lot of room to move in.
    Timeout- Locks down.
    The Underwater boss. Only boss that swims. The 
    Salamander has 2 modes of fire, but does not
    really transform when changing from one mode to the
    other. In mode one, the weapons are Mines, Shooting
    Bombs, and Flames. In the second mode there are the
    Blue plasma blasts, Homing missiles, "Lightsaber" tail,
    Arm fling, and Grab.
    Mines- fly to the top
    Shooting Bombs- Dodge the bullets and turn down 
    Flames- They go pretty slow, just get out of the way
    Blue plasma blast- when it's charging, fly to the top,
                                  when it fires, fly behind him and
    Homing Missile- Fly around them and fire to blow 'em
    "Lightsaber" Tail- Usually follows Homing missiles.
                                  Go to the top left corner.
    Arm fling- wait for the 3rd swing, then get out of the 
    Grab- shoot the hand to keep it back.
    Funny Facts
    To make the Salamander do a flip, follow these 
    #1 Wait for plasma blast
    #2 When fires, fly around it slowly
    Time out- Uses the pipes as monkey bars and climbs
    Get a hedgehog and fire at it underwater. It will blow
    up the outer shell of the head. Once it comes back up
    it will grab on to the pipes.
    The guy with the coolest sounding name. It was 
    actually pretty cool to have armor fly in and land on
    the boss. Without the armor it has the Grenades, 
    Vulcan cannon, Missiles, Shrapnel Bombs.
    With the armor it has..... nevermind, just look below.
    Grenades-Fly above the grenades
    Vulcan cannon- Either go between the 2 stream of 
                               shots, or away from them
    Missiles- these are not aimed, just destroy the ones
                    that are coming at you.
    Shrapnel Bombs- OH..DEAR...GOD... You can
                                 not possibly dodge these.
                                 Theres one way though, go out,
                                 buy a PAR or GS, look for codes
                                 on the internet, type them in.
    Arched Lasers- go to the left, after the first set,
                              fly forward to dodge the second
    Aimed Arched Lasers- go to the left and move 
                                         forward slowly
    Missiles-destroy them fast.
    Big Missiles- see above only move around
    Grenades- go to the very bottom left of the screen
    Special Tri-polygon- (only if you have separated the
                                       armor) Go to the center of the 
                                       3 polygons. When you see the
                                       chance, fly through them.
    Funny Facts
    Is the Vulcan Cannon friction activated?! When it
    touches the ground, it starts firing!
    To make the Sturmvogel do a flip/backflip do this
    #1 Wait for it's small missile attacks. 
    #2 Fly around him. Slowly.
    Timeout- armor detaches boss, armor flies away
    (I don't know if this is possible without a PAR/GS)
    When the boss (with armor) turns around to fire
    grenades, fly to the core and blow him up

    Shoot it  until it falls down. If he flips to the right shoot
