3) Bosses

3.1) Blossomon
Blossomon is found in Humid Cave and in the Abyss of Grief. As the first boss
she is incredibly easy. Just make sure that before you battle her you have 3-5
alpha level magic disks. Blossomon's only attack is a thorny vine that 
encircles her when you get close. So with that being said stay away and fire 
your first magic attack whether it's Petty Bolt, Petty Ice, or Petty Fire. You
can also use a shot weapon if you are well versed in using them. Just keep your 
distance and keep firing refilling your MP stock when necessary and she should 
go down without even touching your hp.

3.2) Mammothmon
This furry guy is found in Cliff Dungeon and Barbarian Cave. As soon as you
enter his arena and his analyzer information finishes run anywhere but straight
ahead to dodge his first charge attack. At this point if you are far enough
away he will simply do another charge attack. If you are not right up next to
him but not far enough away for him to want to charge you he will perform an
Ice Breath attack which can be very detrimental to your health. If you are
right up next to Mammothmon he will try to swat you away with his trunk. To
battle this behemoth let himdo his very first charge attack and then make him
perform a second one. When he hits the wall stab him once or twice and then run
to make him perform another charge attack in your direction. Just keep
repeating until he's dead.

3.3) Mecha Rogue 04
This guy is found by himself in the X Digimon Lab and there's three of him at
the end of Vine Tunnel. You'll also run into him a bunch as you head for the 
final battle and also in some of the final sidequests so it's imperative that 
you learn how to fight him now. My strategy honest to god is run up to him and
swing away with whatever handheld weapon makes you strongest. The only attack
you really have to worry about when you're that close is an attack where he
stuns you and then shoots you, but if you attack fast enough you won't even 
have to worry about that. If you stay away from him he has a ramming attack
and a laser blast that can cause problems. Just hack, hack, and hack again
until he falls.

3.4) Apokarimon
This guy is called Apokarimon, but is probably better known as Apocalymon, the
big uber-baddie from Season 1. This bad boy is located at the end of Dome Base
and in all honesty I about pooped my self the first time I saw this guy on 
screen. Fortunately he's not as hard as he should be. First before you even 
touch Apokarimon you have to remove all of the spiked balls surrounding the
platform he's on. To stop you Apokarimon has an ice attack can call on flying
baddies and can rain meteors down upon on you. Block as needed and take all of
the balls out. Once they're gone you can attack Apokarimon himself. Just get up
there and hack away healing as needed until he's dead.

3.5) SkullGreymon
The longer you go the uglier they get. SkullGreymon is found in the Sand 
Labyrinth and the Legendary Coliseum. Fortunately Skull's a pushover. Open
your magic window and when this guy starts to glow fire. Not only does this 
hurt him, but it also stops his only attack. Also, for those who started with
Veemon or Dorumon this guy is least resistant to Ice and Lighting so you guys
should have no problem.  

3.6) Scorpiomon
Another ugly pushover Scorpiomon is found in the Ancient Ruins and in the 
Captive Dungeon. Run up and start swinging taking care to dodge the little 
fireballs as necessary. The only time you really need to hit this guy is when
you see him start to charge electricity. You need to hit him and if you fail to
then you need to run like hell otherwise you'll get zapped. Just keep slicing
and soon Scorpiomon will have his data destroyed.

3.7) MaloMyotismon
Season 2's big bad is found at the end of Station X. This guy is also a lot
easier than he should be. He's got two attacks. The first he does after taking
a couple of shots. He flies into the air and fires off an easily avoidable
lightning bolt. Soon after he lands creating a shockwave. He will then fire two
lasers from his shoulders. Go to the right or left edge and block the 
appropriate laser then run up and slash away. There should be no problems at a
high enough level. You know like Level 30.

3.8) ShogunGekomon
ShogunGekomon or "Fatty" as I call him can be found on Geko Path and Item Road.
If you remember Fatty from seasons 1 and 2 of Digimon you know he loves to
sing. Here his singing puts you to sleep and you can't wake up until you're
hit. That said stay away and fire magic or a shot weapon. By the way, when I
say "away" I mean "Put as much distance as possible between the two of you." If
you started with Veemon or Guilmon you're in good shape because this goon is
least resistant to Lightning and Fire. Finally his other attack is a shockwave
which is too easy to block.

3.9) Mecha Rogue 04 x3
I warned you. Go see 3.3 for a strategy.

3.10) Diaboromon
I told you they keep getting uglier. Diaboromon is found at the end of Vein
Dungeon. He's got his claws and fireballs and that's it. Just dodge the claws
and fireballs and attack as you can with melee or magic. This is another guy 
who is easier than he should be.

3.11) Lucemon
Hades Obelisk contains Season 4's big bad and in what may seem a stroke of luck
as soon as you hit the arena Lucemon takes to the sky. This means he's either
going to land and attack or try to blow you up. If he lands he will either
perform a claw attack or spew poison at you. If he throws out the claw block or
dodge and fire magic or a shot weapon at the ball he's holding. If he spews the
poison at you run to his side where you can't be hit and stab the ball he's 
holding. When he's in the air and zooms by real fast you will see targeting 
reticles appear. Move as far away from these as possible because in a second
they will explode and the explosions have a good range. You have to hit the
ball Lucemon's holding until it breaks when it does then you can have at
Lucemon himself. Attack swiftly to make sure he doesn't. Eventually the ball
will reappear and be a bit tougher to break. Just keep breaking it and 
attacking Lucemon until he's dead.

3.12) Mecha Rogue 05
This guy is found at the end of Mecha Nest and in the Cursed Dungeon sidequest.
If you have problems with this one do some serious leveling up before the
Cursed Dungeon because in there you have to face 10 of theses guys in 2 sets of
four and 1 set of two and they are EXACTLY like this boss you are facing. This
guy only has one attack which is an energy swipe that can hit multiple times.
Fortunately, if you block it once it makes it harmless. The problem with Mecha
Rogue 05 is that you can't attack him when he's got his shield active. If you
try to you will take damage not him. When his shield is up he can't attack so
just stay away until he drops his shield and then drop him.

3.13) LordKnightmon
The first, and only, boss to disprove my "The longer you go the uglier they
get." statement from earlier LordKnightmon is the boss at the end of Electro
Mine and Cursed Dungeon. LordKnightmon has three attacks. The first is a purple
cloud that poisons you on contact so stay away! The second is a double claw
attack that usually misses you. LordKnightmon is COMPLETELY vulnerable during
this so run up and hit her hard. Her final attack is to shoot fire and then
flip backwards. She is COMPLETELY invulnerable until she lands from her flip.
Just dodge and attack as you can. She's not that tough, just really annoying.

3.14) Mecha Rogue X Form 1
This final baddie's first form looks like a cross between Yu-gi-oh's Blade
Knight and Duskmon from Digimon. This guy has a swipe attack and a purple blast
attack he uses for distance fighting. Just run up and start hitting him. Once
you've knocked off enough hp the guy starts flying in circles around you. Don't
try to run until you see him become a ball of light. As soon as the
transformation is complete get away from the center of the circle because he's
gonna land and create an explosion in about two seconds. Afterwards heal and
watch for him to appear on an outer platform. The only way you can reach him
here is with magic but take care to watch for a purple light to appear on the
field. When it does run to its center and defend it from the oncoming Mecha
Rogue 04s. You have to fend off three of these guys. The really bad news is
that if one of them reaches the light they become a duplicate of Mecha Rogue X.
If Mecha Rogue X is destroyed while a duplicate is on the field he will simply
transfer his data into a duplicate and you'll have to try again. To avoid this
get one duplicate on the field and lower his hp as much as you can without
killing it. When the original hits the field lower his hp until he's almost
dead. Wipe out the duplicate and then wipe out Mecha Rogue X when you're 1000%
sure the duplicate is gone. Onto round 2!

3.15) Mecha Rogue X Form 2
This form never moves so that's a good thing the bad thing is his two attacks
are very detrimental. First when you see him light up with purple rings head
for the VERY outer edge of the arena to avoid some poisonous gas. As soon as
the gas dissipates, if he doesn't light up again, run up and swing away until
he does light up again. Eventually he will release two drill like objects that
shine spotlights on the field. These drills move clockwise around the field and
their spotlights bind you to your location. Once bound the drills launch mini
drills at you that you have to block. This is the easiest form of Mecha Rogue X
so you should have little trouble.

3.16) Mecha Rogue X Final Form
The last boss and easily the ugliest. When the battle starts head for a spot
directly under the boss's torso or to his side and hack away. If you go to his
side take care to avoid getting trampled as he walks. From his side or torso
there are three attacks that can hit you. One is a pair of purple-black balls
that follow you around for a good bit. The next is an energy wall which you can
either block or run from. He can summon one or two of these at a time so watch
out. The final attack he can hit you with while under his torso or by his side
is his attack where he becomes a ship and zooms away and back at high speed.
This is his most damaging attack so make sure you have full Hp before and after
it by using a healing spell or disks. His other two attacks are lightning bolts
that shoot and spread from his hands and a an ugly purple tongue attack. These
attacks can only hit you at a distance so stay near him, stay healthy, and take 
that rogue down once and for all!!
