    Howdy and welcome to my Boss FAQ for Odin Sphere.  As the file name states,
    this guide will simply list all of the bosses and how to fight them.  The
    bosses are actually pretty unique and some can be difficult to fight so
    hopefully I can ease it up for you a bit.

    -Holy crap, will you just look at the beauty of that dragon?  Belial here will
    be your first real boss here, and if you haven't gotten to the basic controls
    or feel of a battle yet, you may be in a bit of trouble.  While Belial won't
    move very far himself, he'll often make debris fall from the air.  You can
    either try to dodge the debris, block them with your shield, or hit them out of
    the air.  After the debris falls, Belial will start sucking in the debris and
    anything else in its path.  During the battle, fairies will aid Belial, but a
    simple dive attack will take them out.  For Belial himself, the key is to get
    behind him.  If debris starts to fall, try to glide over him and once he starts
    sucking in the debris start attacking him until he turns around.  Once he does,
    retreat and take out any fairies that are around.  Just keep trying to get
    behind him as the debris falls and attack him that way.  It'll take awhile, but
    you'll win eventually.

    -You'll be fighting Velvet this time and boy is she tough if you have no clue
    what you're doing.  Velvet will start off on the ground and she'll usually
    throw a bunch of alchemy potions at you, trying to either damage your directly
    or block your path when you're trying to run.  Your best bet would be gliding
    over all the potions on the ground and dive attack Velvet herself.  She'll
    start attacking with her chain if she gets too close.  Once you hit her enough
    times, she'll jump into a tree and start using more alchemy moves.  She'll
    stand in the tree and release chains that go into the ground and bring up
    cyclones, explosions, or sometimes ice blades.  You want to try to get behind
    Velvet this time.  Once you're able to see her on your radar, jump into the
    air and glide until she comes into view.  Once she does, dive attack her and
    keep running to get back behind her.  Repeat this until she falls out of the
    tree.  Repeat the same process of gliding over her potions and then dive
    attacking her while keeping your distance to avoid her chains and keep getting
    behind her and dive attack her when she's in a tree.

    -You'll be fighting Brigan this time.  I don't know about you, but I'm glad
    that I have the chance to take this jackass down.  The key to this fight is
    endurance and patience, not brute strength.  You'll want to keep dive bombing
    yourself at Brigan while getting on the other side of him once you land.  What
    makes this battle even more annoying is the fact that Snowflakes will come and
    aid Brigan.  Whenever they appear, take the time out to take care of them as
    you'll want to avoid being frozen.  For Brigan himself, here's his attack list:
    
    -He'll simply try to hit you with his hammer.
    -He'll drink some of his drink and breath fire at you shortly or start walking
    forward while breathing fire.
    -He'll jump back once and then charge across the screen.  Jump over this.
    -He'll take a swig of his drink and then start jumping across the screen.  If
    he does this, simply glide away from him and you should be able to outrun him.
    If he's near you when he does this, glide anyways as he won't be able to
    damage you at all.
    -He'll throw some kind of boomerang at you and it'll return to him.
    -He'll throw multiple blades at you.
    -He'll grab you and force his drink down your throat, damaging you badly.
    
    After Brigan jumps around for a bit, another Valkyrie will come to aid him for
    a short time.  Make sure to take breaks inbetween to suck up any lingering
    Phozons or Butterflies flying around.  If you have any spare Psypher points
    to use, use Phozon Burst if you've learned it already (which I'm hoping you
    did) and then back off as he'll probably start attacking.  If you don't want
    to use Phozon Burst, just keep gliding towards him and then at a certain
    angle (usually when you're close to being above him), dive bomb him and try to
    land behind him.  Run away once you land and wait to see what attack he does.
    After you do enough damage, the Snowflakes will no longer help, but he'll
    summon for Valkyries.  The Valkyries usually won't chase after you, so don't
    bother with them if you can help it.  Just keep repeating the process of dive
    bombing it and waiting to see his attack so you can take the correct measure
    in dodging it.  This fight will take awhile to complete.
    
    UPDATE: Apparently when Brigan's plates fall off, he'll summon Valkyries to
    replace them, so if you can, take out any stray Valkyries that come down to
    keep those plates off of him.  Many thanks to the many people that e-mailed me
    this.  Too many of you to name.

    ----------------------------------BOSS-----------------------------------------
    
    -You'll be fighting Demon Lord Odin this time, but it's actually Brigan that
    you're fighting technically.  There are a few things you'll want to take your
    time to notice first.  First off, unlike Brigan, there are no protective plates
    on Odin, so you don't need to worry about knocking anything off to get more
    damage in.  A Valkyrie will often come in to aid him, but she can be dealt with
    easily.  Now for his attacks:
    
    -He'll use a sway of punches as he steps forward.  Avoid this at all costs.
    -He'll pull out a morning star with a blue spike at the end.  He'll often make
    the spike start bouncing across the room.  Avoid this by running away.
    -He'll do a small charge across the screen.  Jump over this.
    -He'll shoot some red beams in two different directions.  They can be destroyed
    by hitting them with your spear, but running away is more effective and safe.
    -He'll jump up and try to land on you.  Back off if you see him jump.
    
    Most of his attacks take a few seconds to charge up, giving you time to prepare
    yourself for it, meaning take that chance to get behind him and start attacking
    him until he turns around.  Dive attacking doesn't seem as effective here since
    it's hard to angle yourself to hit Odin a lot of times and still land behind
    him safely.  Your best bet for this fight is to wait before he attacks and
    either run away or try to jump and get behind him.  Dive attacking to get
    behind him is easy, but he'll often turn around too fast for you to do anything
    effective.  Like with the Brigan fight, this one is about patience, so don't
    rush into any fighting until you're able to get behind him.

    ----------------------------------BOSS-----------------------------------------
    
    -Leventhan is an easy enemy to figure out and because of that, this fight is
    probably the easiest one you've had so far.  Leventhan will fly around for a
    bit and then it'll start shooting either a thin laser out of its mouth or a
    large laser that takes up almost half of the screen.  The best way to deal with
    this little monster is to try to stay close to him but not too close.  If you
    see him getting ready to open his mouth, quickly get behind him and start
    attacking as he shoots out his laser.  He'll also often land on the ground and
    do a small charge towards you.  Make sure to follow him as he does this since
    once he stops, he'll sit there momentarily leaving him open to attack him, so
    use that opportunity well.  If you hit him enough times, his crown will fall
    off which makes him waste a few more seconds getting it back on his head which
    leaves him vulnerable to attacks.  Though his attacks are very easy to predict,
    one screw up with the lasers is all that you need to lose this fight as
    Leventhan does a lot of damage for a new born dragon.  Overall though, this is
    the easiest fight so far in the game.

    ----------------------------------BOSS-----------------------------------------
    
    -You'll fight Mercedes this time.  The thing that makes this fight an annoyance
    are the reinforcements which consists of soldiers AND fairies.  Needless to say
    that a 4v1 fight is a pretty unfair advantage, so once they come into play,
    take out one soldier.  For Mercedes herself, she's not all that hard.  She'll
    usually fly around, sit for a second and then fire some red beams at you which
    can be easily dodged.  From time to time, she'll fire multiple red beams and
    then let loose with a huge red beam.  While she's shooting, take that time to
    get behind her and get a couple of hits in and then back off.  Mercedes has
    the ability to heal herself by sucking up any Phozons near her and if you
    attack her while she does this, she'll quickly retaliate by shooting at you.
    If you're getting desperate, you can always use Phozon Burst.  It takes off a
    chunk of her health and it'll probably take out some of the reinforcements as
    well.  However, there is a good chance she'll suck up the Phozons before you
    to heal herself, so use it wisely.  Basically, whenever she shoots her red
    beams, get behind her and get a few hits in and back off before the soldiers
    or fairy reach you to minimize the damage.

    -You'll be fighting Odette this time around.  You better brace yourself for the
    biggest slowdown in the game so far.  Odette will summon a bunch of small
    skeletons and will often make tentacles come out of the ground to stop you
    from running.  She'll summon so many skeletons that there will be massive
    slowdown no matter where you run off to.  Odette herself doesn't exactly have
    a massive attack arsenal to use, but here's what she's capable to do, or at
    least what she did to me:
    
    -Summons skeletons and tentacles.  If they become a problem, use a Shine to get
    rid of their blue auras.
    -Throws a red double edge scythe.  Run away from this.
    -Pull out two long spider like legs and heal herself for large amounts.
    
    Because of that last attack, Odette can be pretty cheap and it's not a safe
    bet to stray too far from her.  Because of all the skeletons floating around,
    you'll want to be patient in finding an opportunity to dive attack her and then
    attack her some more as she's summoning more skeletons to do her dirty work.
    If you see her getting ready to use her double edge scythe, run away to avoid
    it.  Once she gets low on health, she'll pull out those spider legs to heal.
    What I did was use a four hit combo followed by a Phozon Burst to outdamage her
    healing.  After the Phozon Burst, go back to attacking but keep an eye on your
    POW Meter.  Do another four hit combo while she's low on health and then follow
    that up with another Phozon Burst to damage her some more.  Hopefully the
    second Phozon Burst will take care of her.

    Chapter 1

    ----------------------------------BOSS-----------------------------------------
    
    -Hey!  Remember her?  You should.  You just fought her with Gwendolyn.  Since
    you're not fighting her with Gwendolyn and since you were stripped down to the
    bone when you started Cornelius, this fight is both a bit harder and a bit
    dumbed down.  Odette will summon her ghosts as usual to do her fighting and
    since this is pretty much the first real fight for Cornelius, she doesn't do
    that much damage to begin with.  You'll want to keep attacking her, hoping that
    she staggers.  If you want a fun little method, you can always spin attack
    her over and over again.  If you do that, though, there's a good chance you'll
    lose a chunk of your health.  The only use Cyclone has in this fight is to take
    out the annoying ghosts and tentacles that aid her in this fight.  After you
    bring her down to nearly a quarter of her health left, she'll pull out those
    spider legs and start healing again.  The healing amount isn't as big this time
    around, but there's really no way to knock her out of it, so just keep
    attacking and when she's getting low, mix a Cyclone in there.

    -It's round two with Brigan.  Thankfully for you, he's not all that different
    from the last time you fought him with Gwendolyn.  Infact, he still has the
    same exact moves.  If you don't remember what they are, here are his moves:
    
    -He'll simply try to hit you with his hammer.
    -He'll drink some of his drink and breath fire at you shortly or start walking
    forward while breathing fire.
    -He'll jump back once and then charge across the screen.  Jump over this.
    -He'll take a swig of his drink and then start jumping across the screen.  If
    he does this, simply jump away from him and you should be able to outrun him.
    If he's near you when he does this, jump anyways as he won't be able to damage
    you at all.
    -He'll throw some kind of boomerang at you and it'll return to him.
    -He'll throw multiple blades at you.
    -He'll grab you and force his drink down your throat, damaging you badly.
    
    With the same moves as last time, Brigan shouldn't be that difficult.  Sadly,
    the endurance portion of the fight also remains the same, but like with the
    last battle, you're able to knock off his chest plates to lower his defense.
    Remember to take out the Valkyries that try to put them back on.  Just keep
    avoiding his attacks with the proper procedures and attack him when you get the
    opening and you should have no problems whatsoever.

    -You'll be fighting Velvet (sorta) again this time around.  Just like when you
    fought her with Gwendolyn, Velvet still uses the same attacks: throwing alchemy
    potions, whipping you with her chain, and hanging in the tree, throwing all
    sorts of crap at you.  Start off by getting behind her and get a few hits in
    and then back off.  After you hit her enough times, she'll jump into a tree.
    Run away as she throws all sorts of things at you.  Once you get close to her
    again by running behind her (she'll be facing you, though), jump up and attack
    her four times and run away again and repeat this until she falls back out of
    the tree.  Go back to getting behind her and attacking her until she goes back
    into the tree.  Repeat the whole process until you defeat her.

    Chapter 4
    =========
    
    ----------------------------------BOSS-----------------------------------------
    
    -This is your second fight against a dragon.  You'll be fighting against Wagner
    (sound familiar?) this time and he's much different than Belial since Wagner
    attacks while being airborn.  This fight is actually really simple once you
    figure out the one thing you need to do.  You may not notice it right away, but
    you need to jump on Wagner's head as he flies around and then attack his body
    from there.  However, getting on the head can be a bit tricky with Wagner will
    use three different attacks to kick your ass.
    
    -He'll dive bomb and slide across the ground.  This hurts very much and if
    you're on his head when he's about to do this, jump off immediately.
    -He'll fly across the screen breathing fire out of his mouth.  If you get hit
    with this, you'll be engulfed in a Level 3 Flame.
    -He'll summon fireballs to fall from the sky and there will be several
    whirlwinds in the area to prevent you from running.
    
    The best time to jump on his head is when he's doing nothing at all.  Jumping
    on his head while he's sliding on the ground is suicidal, and jumping on his
    head while he's breathing fire is both hard and dangerous as you can either
    overjump him or underjump, getting caught in the flames.  Wait until he sits
    there for a couple of seconds before jumping on and attacking.  Keep an eye on
    your POW Meter as you attack and once it becomes low or he's about to dive
    attack, jump off.  Repeat this entire process until he falls.

    ----------------------------------BOSS-----------------------------------------
    
    -You'll fight Mercedes this time around.  Just with the Gwendolyn fight, she's
    still as easy to predict as ever, but it seems she's a bit easier as Cornelius
    but I can't really figure out why.  You'll want to take your swipes at her
    while she's flying around the area.  While she's moving, jump up and use a 4
    hit combo on her and keep doing this until she stops moving.  Once she stops,
    she'll shoot those red beams back out again and then might follow that up with
    a red large beam.  Run away when she does this and continue attacking her as
    she flies through the air.  Remember that she has the ability to suck in any
    lingering Phozons to heal herself, so make sure to suck them in first if there
    are any.  Take advantage if there's a Butterfly around the area.  If you want
    a quick and easy kill, hit her four times and then use a Phozon Burst and keep
    attacking her.  Just make sure to keep an eye on your POW Meter if you do that.

    -You'll be fighting Leventhan for a second time, and like with the previous
    bosses you've faced for a second time, Leventhan uses the same attacks, so you
    know this fight will pretty much be an easy one for you.  Like before,
    Leventhan will fly around for a bit.  Once he opens his mouth, get behind him
    and start wailing on him as he shoots out those beams of his.  Remember to keep
    an eye on your POW Meter as you attack him.  Sometimes he'll charge across the
    floor.  If he does that, get behind him and start attacking him once he's done
    charging.  Like I said, it's pretty much the same tactics that you used when
    you fought him with Gwendolyn minus the dive attacking part.

    -You'll fight Belial this time around.  Unlike the Gwendolyn, this fight
    against Belial is much more difficult this time around mainly because there
    will be a Wizard that will most likely summon Floating Eyes to help attack you.
    Because of this, there will be a lot of projectiles coming your way so you
    can't sit in one place for too long.  As for Belial, he still has the same
    attacks as last time which include dropping crap from the sky, sucking in that
    stuff, and eating you if you get too close.  You may need to resort to using a
    Painkiller for this fight as you'll want every bit of protection you can get.
    If you have some Napalms left over, using a couple of those will help you out
    quite a bit in this fight.  Don't hesitate to use any healing items when the
    time comes.  Just keep moving and get behind Belial to attack him until he
    turns around.

    -The game already decides to throw you a curveball by pitting you against
    Belial already.  Belial is still a huge pain mainly because of his ability to
    drop all sorts of crap from the ceiling.  Also, since you probably don't have
    that many HP levels yet, you're pretty vulnerable to dying in this fight, so
    make sure not to rush into this.  Make sure to only attack Belial when he's
    doing nothing.  If he's getting ready to charge or if crap is falling down,
    don't attack him.  Charge shots are pretty useful, but you should have Piercing
    Shot by now.  Use that to get some pretty good damage in.  This fight, like
    always, is about dodging Belial and the crap from the sky.

    -You'll be fighting Oswald this time.  This fight is pretty challenging because
    Oswald is both agile and strong and he can hit you multiple times, so you'll
    want to keep your distance from him and shoot only a couple of shots at a time.
    Soon, Oswald will turn into his Shadow Form which makes him even faster and
    stronger.  You'll want to try to outrun/fly him, but you can't, so you'll need
    to keep an eye on his attack patterns.  If you're flying through the air, he'll
    usually double jump to attack you.  If he does this, quickly land on the ground
    and run the other away.  If you're running on the ground, he'll swing his
    sword multiple times.  If he does this, jump up and fly away.  Even running
    away is difficult because of the two Fairies that accompany him.  After Oswald
    is finished using his Shadow Form, he'll sit there for several seconds.  Take
    that time to start pummeling him with your Crossbow.  If you're getting
    desperate, use Piercing Shot as it'll take off a huge amount of his health.
    The Fairies also tend to heal him when he gets low on health.  If that becomes
    a problem, use a Blizzard to freeze the Fairies momentarily.

    -You'll be fighting Wagner for the second time.  However, unlike when you
    fought him with Cornelius, this fight is much easier because of one thing:
    You're able to fly.  Like before, you're supposed to jump on Wagner's head, but
    he has the same arsenal of attacks.  If you don't remember what they are:
    
    -He'll dive bomb and slide across the ground.  This hurts very much and if
    you're on his head when he's about to do this, jump off immediately.
    -He'll fly across the screen breathing fire out of his mouth.  If you get hit
    with this, you'll be engulfed in a Level 3 Flame.
    -He'll summon fireballs to fall from the sky and there will be several
    whirlwinds in the area to prevent you from running.
    
    If you see him flying across the screen while breathing fire, jump up into the
    twice so that you're flying, and hold up.  Once Wagner comes near you, you
    should be able to land on his head safely.  Start pummeling him then and jump
    off to reload just incase he decides to dive to the ground.  Just repeat that
    until he goes down.

    -This will probably be the most and annoying fight you've had in either a long
    while or so far in the game.  This fight will test your fighting skills.
    Beldor comes with two Axe Knights, and while taking them out eases the
    difficulty slightly, it still becomes a pain when the other enemies emerge to
    help him.  Like with the other wizards, you'll need to hit Beldors swords back
    at him to stun him momentarily and then start rapidly shooting at him to take
    off as much health as possible.  If your POW Meter runs out, find an open area
    to reload.  Beldor is nasty and will often summon poison clouds underneath you
    and a green mist underneath you to turn you into a Frog.  Flying through the
    air will help you avoid these.  Beldor will usually summon four swords to
    surround you if you stray too far and he'll often shoot out a bunch of
    fireballs at you.  Once you see four swords spinning around near him, run in
    and knock them into him and start attacking him.  Repeat this whole process
    until he goes down.

    -Oh joy.  You're fighting Odette yet again.  I'm sure you're pretty much sick
    of her by now, but let's get this out of the way as fast as possible.  She'll
    stick to the same usual tricks, such as summoning flying skeletons to do her
    work for her and she'll whip out those spider legs of hers once she gets low on
    health to heal yourself.  Lucky for you, you're using Mercedes this time,
    meaning you can keep your distance a bit while you pummel away.  If you have
    the Overload Psypher skill, this would be a good time to use it.  Keep shooting
    her and run away when you need to either reload or back off when it gets too
    crowded with the flying skeletons.  Once you bring her down to about half of
    her health or have taken off 3/4's of her health, let loose with a Piercing
    Shot or two to take her out quickly and avoid healing herself to drag this
    battle out even more.

    what to say to you.  What makes Leventhan an easier battle than before is that
    since you're controlling Mercedes, you can hover behind him and pelt him with
    your Crossbow as he shoots out a huge beam.  To make this fight go even
    quickly, use Overload (though it's not a must in this fight) and wait until he
    either shoots that beam out of his mouth and get behind him or wait until he
    charges across the ground and get behind him and start shooting at him.  You
    should be able to take him out fairly quickly this way.  Easy easy fight

    -You'll be fighting Odin this time around.  Just like the first time you fought
    him with Gwendolyn, this fight is pretty predictable and pretty simple once
    you grasp his moves and their radius.  However, what makes this battle much
    more easier is that you're able to fly and shoot at him from a safer distance.
    Odin still has the same arsenal of attacks from last time which include:
    
    -Moves forward while throwing punches.
    -Charges a short distance.
    -Jumps up and lands near you.
    -Pulls out his Psypher and lets it bounce across the area.
    -Jumps up and does a small dive attack to the ground.
    -Shoots out a bunch of red beams.
    
    He takes a couple of seconds to wind up for his attacks, giving you time to
    back away from him.  After he's done attacking, get near him and shoot a few
    rounds at him before backing off to avoid his next attack.  You shouldn't need
    to worry about the reinforcements for this fight, so just repeat the process
    of shooting a few rounds and backing off to dodge his attacks until he falls.

    tactics as last time.  He still those four breastplates that need to be
    knocked off to deal some more damage and if you've learned Phozon Burst
    already, then that task should be a simple one.  Just make sure to keep the
    Valkyrie away that tries to replace it.  If you don't remember what his
    movelist contains, here are his moves:
    
    -He'll do a small charge forward.
    -He'll jump up and land near you.
    -He'll take a swig of his drink and breath fire either standing still or
    walking forward.
    -He'll take a swig of his drink and start jumping around.
    -He'll throw out a few blades.
    -He'll throw a boomerang type of weapon.
    -He'll crush you with his hammer.
    
    As long as you wait for him to finish his attack and then start attacking him,
    you should be fine as long as you remember to jump away while he's jumping
    around and jump over him he tries charging at you.

    attack patterns as the Wraiths do (they're pretty much one in the same, though)
    so it shouldn't be too difficult unless you get pincered between them.  The
    one thing you'll want to do here is attack and keep running.  Staying in one
    place can be deadly.  To give you the edge in this battle, use one of those
    Unlimited POW potions I advised you to make at the beginning of the Chapter and
    use Shadow Form with Oswald.  Start hacking away while keeping an eye on your
    POW Meter.  Once it gets too low, revert back and give yourself some distance
    while your POW Meter regenerates.  Once it's full, revert back to Shadow Form
    and start attacking again.  By the time the Unlimited POW Potion wears off, one
    of the Haljas should be dead or near death.  Finish it off and fight the last
    one the same way you'd fight a Wraith.

    now.  If you have a decent HP level (maybe around near the teens), this fight
    shouldn't be as difficult as it was for Mercedes and Cornelius, but it's still
    quite possible to get your ass handed to you.  Like with the previous fight
    against the Haljas, use an Unlimited POW Potion and turn into Shadow Form to
    get this fight started.  As the crap is falling from the sky, try to jump
    behind Belial and start wailing on him until your POW Meter is almost gone.
    Once it is, revert and let it regenerate before reverting back.  Make sure to
    step away if you see Belial in a crouching position and/or backing up and jump
    over his charge and avoid him when his head is straight up in the air.  Other
    than that, keep getting behind him and keep wailing on him in Shadow Form.

    but since you're playing as Oswald and not as Mercedes, you can't keep yourself
    at a safe distance while hitting him.  The first thing you'll want to do is
    use an Unlimited POW Potion and turn into Shadow Form.  Get near Odin so that
    he's ready to wind up into an attack and then jump behind him once he does and
    start hacking away at him.  Once your POW Meter becomes low, revert back and
    give yourself some distance to let your POW Meter regenerate.  Once it does,
    turn back into Shadow Form and get back behind him as he winds up for an attack
    and keep attacking him.  Once your Unlimited POW Potion wears off, he should
    have more than half his health taken off, so take off the rest of his health
    in Oswalds regular form.  You already know his attack pattern by now, so dodge
    them as they come.

    -Wagner will be your opponent this time around.  This fight is pretty much the
    same as your previous fights with Wagner, meaning that he has the same attacks
    as before and summons Snowflakes and Fireballs to help him out.  Because of
    this, it shouldn't be too difficult to take him down.  Don't bother using
    Shadow Form for this fight as you'll want to be alert at all times and not be
    a sitting duck if your POW Meter runs out.  Once Wagner gets close, jump on his
    head and only hit Wagner THREE times each time.  If you use Oswald's fourth
    attack, he'll jump into the air and fly off Wagner which can be dangerous if
    you're on him while he's breathing fire, so avoid using a normal four hit combo
    and stick with a three hit combo.  It's more effective than flying off him and
    trying to get back on constantly.

    too far off, so if you want to try to keep this fight between you and Skuldi,
    try to avoid moving around too much if you can help it.  The way to damage
    Skuldi is to knock his swords back at him and start attacking him then until
    he disappears.  After he reappears, he'll throw a few rounds of fireballs at
    you and then some more swords will appear, so simply hit the swords back at him
    and keep attacking him.  Repeat this process until he falls.

    -Well, Onyx sure does look a lot bigger up close.  I blame steroids.  Anywho,
    Onyx is a tough fight and you'll want to be prepared out the ass for this one.
    Onyx has only a few attacks, but all of them are just as deadly.  He'll do one
    of the following:
    
    -He'll shake a little bit and whip out some flame whips and wail them around.
    Simply keep your distance to avoid these.
    -He'll shoot out numerous fireballs from his back that'll stick around once
    they land on the ground.  You can take them out with a hit of your Belderiver
    though.
    -A fire arc will come across the screen.  Learn its movement and position
    yourself to dodge this.
    -He'll engulf himself in fire and charge across the screen and jump across the
    screen.  He usually does this two or three consecutive times.
    
    The last one is his most used and most deadly attack as it'll do a lot of
    damage, no matter what HP Level you're at.  The best way to avoid this is to
    try to jump over him as he's nearing you and just hope he doesn't decide to
    jump at the same time you do.  A Painkiller is a must in this fight and use an
    Unlimited POW Potion while you're at it.  Using Shadow Form is up to you, but
    having to revert back will leave you defenseless for a few seconds and that's
    all it takes for Onyx to pound you into the ground.  You can also use
    the Psypher skill Invincible to dodge his charging attack,  but again, that's
    up to you.  This fight is surely a hard and long one, but once you learn his
    attack pattern and movements, you should be able to dodge the majority of his
    attacks without sustaining near death damage.
    
    Alternatively, you can simply use an Ooze on him.  Since he's so damn big and
    an Ooze is so small and moves back and forth slowly, Onyx won't be able to do
    a damn thing except watch his HP go down as you start wailing on him.  Use this
    tactic if you're getting your ass handed to you over and over again.

    -You'll fight Odette this time again.  Since she's the first boss for Velvet,
    she's not entirely too powerful, but unfortunately for you, you're not either.
    Odette still has the same attacks which include summoning a bunch of those
    annoying small, flying skeletons and Tentacles.  She'll also whip out those
    sexy bony spider legs of hers to heal herself up once her health gets past the
    halfway mark.  This is where the annoying part comes in.  Since Velvet is the
    weakest character out of all the playable characters, she can't keep up with
    the healing of Odette unless you were grinding out Phozons for several hours.
    Your best bet for this fight would be to get her down to as much health as you
    can and then start spamming Cyclone on her and hope that it can either out
    damage her heal or that it takes her out quickly enough to prevent her from
    healing.  If she still manages to live, your only option is going all out on
    Odette.  Good luck with this one.

    annoyance, so make sure to take her out as quickly as possible.  Get behind her
    and start attacking her.  Once she gets down to about half her health, the
    fairies will start healing her, so take this time to use a Phozon Burst to take
    out the fairies if they're near you and continue attacking her from behind

    smash you with something, quickly get behind him and either jump in the air and
    hit the attack button to wail Velvet's chain around, or stay on the ground and
    use a forward attack.  Remember to take out the Valkyries that come to aid him

    use the same arsenal of attacks which include dive attacking, flying at you
    while breathing fire, and summoning whirlwinds to keep you from running.  Once
    you get a chance to jump on his head, get up there and start attacking him.

    seem intimidating at first, but as long as you focus your attention on one at
    a time and if you have a decent HP level (probably somewhere in the 20s), then
    you should be able to manage.  Belial still has the ability to let crap rain
    from the sky and he can still charge and eat you, so I would suggest taking him
    out first.  The best way to fight this battle is to equip a Jupiter Bangle if
    you have one and use Overload and jump behind Belial.  Jump in the air and then
    start attacking so that your chains start flailing around to damage him some
    more.  Repeat this while getting behind him as he turns around and avoid the
    falling objects and he'll fall in a matter of minutes.  As for Beldor,
    thankfully no enemy reinforcements will help him, so it's a 1v1 fight unless
    he summons a slime or two.  Either way, wait until the swords appear near him
    and hit them back to stun him.  Follow it up with a normal combo or use Phozon
    Burst.  You can also disperse his fireballs with one swing of your chain.

    -You'll be fighting Ingway while he's in his Darkova form this time.  First,
    if you can't realize the beauty of how well drawn this creature is, you need
    to get your eyes checked.  Fortunately, while Darkova might be big, he's not as
    tough as Onyx was mainly because Darkova is rarely mobile, and if he does move,
    he doesn't go very far.  The only time he'll attack you himself is when you get
    close and he'll swipe at you.  He has three heads, and each one breaths fire.
    The fireballs differ.  One will linger on the ground and explode into a line of
    fire.  Another one is a Chakram type of fire that'll fly across the screen,
    homing in your position.  The best way to deal with this fight is to keep
    swinging when you're not attacking.  Since Velvet is invincible while she's
    swinging, it'll save you the trouble of healing.  You don't need to take out
    all three heads to win this fight, so don't be picky when it comes to attacking
    and try to hit as hard as you can.  The best way to attack is to jump up and
    attack his heads that way and then swing away to safetly to let your POW Meter
    recharge.  Repeat this procedure until he falls.

    battle with Darkova, he has a few more nasty attacks, and each head is pretty
    much designed to a certain element. One head will spew fire, another head will
    shoot ice, and the last one will cover the screen in a poison mist.  Thankfully
    though that you can still dodge most of these with ease as long as you can see
    when they're coming.  Once the battle starts, use a Painkiller and an Unlimited
    POW Potion and start attacking him.  This time, you need to defeat all three
    heads instead of just focusing on a single one, so focus on one at a time until
    it goes down.  Sometimes a pillar will come from the ground.  Use this to get
    above the fire line on the ground and jump towards Darkova and start attacking
    him.  Use an Elixir if you get low on health and use a Painkiller and an
    Unlimited POW Potion when they run out and repeat this whole process until he

    Darkova, he has multiple heads that need to be taken down.  Try to keep your
    distance once the battle starts and use a Painkiller and an Unlimited POW
    Potion.  Once you do, get close to him and use Shadow Form and start attacking
    the heads.  Revert once your POW Meter gets low and continue whacking the
    heads.  King Gallon will lash out his tongues at you once you get close and
    he'll often burrow his heads underground and move them around.  If this
    happens, avoid touching his neck while it's moving or else you'll be damaged.
    If you're caught between his neck, stand in the open space until his heads go
    back into place.  Once you take out his heads, his chest will open, revealing
    his heart.  You need to attack this and get its health to zero to win this

    -This time, it's round two with Onyx, except that you're fighting him with

    attacks which include whipping out some short rangle flame whips, spewing
    fireballs from his back, and charging across the screen.  Since Mercedes can't
    really double jump since she flies if you push X twice, it'll be a bit hard to
    dodge his charge if he decides to jump.  Use a Painkiller to start this fight
    and if you can, use Overload to make her weapon even more damaging.  Just wait
    until he finishes his charges to get an opening and attack him.  It's a simple
    procedue, but the fight itself is a pain, so hopefully you have a few Elixirs
    on hand.
    
    Of course, you can juse use an Ooze like last time as well.

    -For Velvet, it's a one on one fight against the Cauldron this time.  Like with
    the fight with Onyx, it's a simple procedure and you'll know what to do once
    you get to the top.  The Cauldron will start off on its side, so jump up and
    take out the arms up there before they start attacking out and then start
    attacking the eye.  Once you do enough damage, some legs and arms will come out
    of it.  Keep attacking the eye until the Cauldron falls down.  I shouldn't have
    to tell you to use a Painkiller and Unlimited POW Potion, but once you need to
    use them again, jump to the ground and drink some.  To get back up, jump on
    the blue arms and legs to get back to the top.  Sometimes during the battle,
    a message will appear telling you to get away from the Cauldron.  Do so.  If
    you're still near the Cauldron once the message disappears, it's an automatic
    death for you.  Once you climb back up, sometimes little sparks will fly off
    and if they hit you, you'll catch on fire.  Some steam will also come out to
    stop you from climbing up, so take your time.  Since Velvet is the physically
    weakest character, this fight might take awhile depending on your Psypher
    Level.  Just repeat the whole process until it finally falls.

    -This is it.  This is the final battle of the game and it's against Leventhan.
    I can see what you're thinking.  Leventhan is much different this time since he
    turned into the dragon from Dragonball Z.  The key of this fight is getting to
    the top of Leventhan and attacking the tiny little crown on his head all while
    avoiding lightning strikes and little sparks that fly towards your way.  To
    reach the top, you'll need to climb on his back not by running across the
    screen, but by jumping on his back.  Sometimes you'll notice another part of
    his body behind you.  Jump on that and continue doing so until you reach the
    top.  When you get near the top, Leventhan will show his head and his scales
    will start spinning around.  Avoid those scales and keep jumping around to
    avoid Leventhan as he'll try to eat you and spit you back down a few levels.
    Once his scales stop moving, jump up and run to the very top and start
    attacking his crown.  You'll get knocked back down to the base of his body
    after enough hits as you'll get struck by lightning, so climb your way back up
    and repeat this whole process until Leventhan goes down for good.  Damn thing
    should've granted me a wish for having to climb all the way up there. *mumbles*
