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.

----------------------------------BOSS-----------------------------------------

-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.

----------------------------------BOSS-----------------------------------------

-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.

----------------------------------BOSS-----------------------------------------

-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-----------------------------------------

Chapter 4
=========

----------------------------------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-----------------------------------------


=========
Chapter 5
=========

----------------------------------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-----------------------------------------


=========
Chapter 6
=========

----------------------------------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.

----------------------------------BOSS-----------------------------------------

Epilogue

----------------------------------BOSS-----------------------------------------

-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.

----------------------------------BOSS-----------------------------------------


=========
Cornelius
=========
(COB)


=========
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.

----------------------------------BOSS-----------------------------------------

Chapter 2
=========

----------------------------------BOSS-----------------------------------------

-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.

----------------------------------BOSS-----------------------------------------


=========
Chapter 3
=========

----------------------------------BOSS-----------------------------------------

-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.

----------------------------------BOSS-----------------------------------------


=========
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-----------------------------------------


=========
Chapter 5
=========

----------------------------------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.

----------------------------------BOSS-----------------------------------------


=========
Chapter 6
=========

----------------------------------BOSS-----------------------------------------

-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.

----------------------------------BOSS-----------------------------------------


========
Epilogue
========

----------------------------------BOSS-----------------------------------------

-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.

----------------------------------BOSS-----------------------------------------


=========
Mercedes
=========
(MEB)


=========
Chapter 1
=========

----------------------------------BOSS-----------------------------------------

-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.

----------------------------------BOSS-----------------------------------------


=========
Chapter 2
=========

----------------------------------BOSS-----------------------------------------

-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.

----------------------------------BOSS-----------------------------------------


=========
Chapter 3
=========

----------------------------------BOSS-----------------------------------------

-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.

----------------------------------BOSS-----------------------------------------


=========
Chapter 4
=========

----------------------------------BOSS-----------------------------------------

-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.

----------------------------------BOSS-----------------------------------------


=========
Chapter 5
=========

----------------------------------BOSS-----------------------------------------

-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.

----------------------------------BOSS-----------------------------------------


=========
Chapter 6
=========

----------------------------------BOSS-----------------------------------------

-You'll be fighting Leventhan again.  Like with the previous two fights against
him, this is an easy fight and if you still lose to this guy, then I don't know
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
though.

----------------------------------BOSS-----------------------------------------

Epilogue
========

----------------------------------BOSS-----------------------------------------

-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.

----------------------------------BOSS-----------------------------------------


=========
Oswald
=========
(OSB)


=========
Chapter 1
=========

----------------------------------BOSS-----------------------------------------

-Oh goodie.  You're fighting Brigan yet again.  Lucky for you he uses the same
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.

Chapter 2
=========

----------------------------------BOSS-----------------------------------------

-You'll be fighting two Halja's at once.  These guys pretty much have the same
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.

----------------------------------BOSS-----------------------------------------


=========
Chapter 3
=========

----------------------------------BOSS-----------------------------------------

-You'll fight Belial this time around yet again.  I hope you're used to him by
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.

----------------------------------BOSS-----------------------------------------


=========
Chapter 4
=========

----------------------------------BOSS-----------------------------------------

-You'll fight Odin here.  He has the same arsenal of attacks this time around
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.

----------------------------------BOSS-----------------------------------------


=========
Chapter 5
=========

----------------------------------BOSS-----------------------------------------

-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.

----------------------------------BOSS-----------------------------------------


=========
Chapter 6
=========

----------------------------------BOSS-----------------------------------------

-You'll take on Skuldi in this fight.  Skuldi is pretty much the exact same
type of boss that Beldor was, except instead of Axe Knights, Skuldi has a few
Revenants to help him out.  However, the Revenants only appear if you wander
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.

----------------------------------BOSS-----------------------------------------

Epilogue
========

----------------------------------BOSS-----------------------------------------

-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.

----------------------------------BOSS-----------------------------------------


=========
Velvet
=========
(VEB)


=========
Chapter 1
=========

----------------------------------BOSS-----------------------------------------

-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.

----------------------------------BOSS-----------------------------------------


=========
Chapter 2
=========

----------------------------------BOSS-----------------------------------------

-You'll fight Mercedes.  Like with the previous fights, Mercedes isn't exactly
hard since she just has two main attacks and she leaves herself open to your
attacks all the time.  The healing fairies will still make this battle an
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
until she falls.  Not too tough.

----------------------------------BOSS-----------------------------------------


=========
Chapter 3
=========

----------------------------------BOSS-----------------------------------------

-You'll fight Brigan this time.  Like with the previous fights, he's still
predictable as ever, and his attacks are easy to avoid but since those armor
plates of his still exist, he still has a lot of defense until you knock him
out of it.  Whenever you see him guzzle down his drink or is about ready to
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
by putting his breastplates back on and you'll do fine.

----------------------------------BOSS-----------------------------------------


=========
Chapter 4
=========

----------------------------------BOSS-----------------------------------------

-You'll fight Wagner this time around.  He's pretty much the same as the
previous fights, but this time, you don't have to worry about flying off him as
you attack since Velvet doesn't jump into the air like Oswald did.  He'll still
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.
Once your POW Meter runs low, jump off to regenerate it and repeat the whole
process again until he goes down.  You shouldn't have too much trouble since
you fought him three times before already.

----------------------------------BOSS-----------------------------------------


=========
Chapter 5
=========

----------------------------------BOSS-----------------------------------------

-You'll take on Odin again.  Like before, he gives you plenty of time to dodge
his attacks as he takes a few seconds to wind up.  While he's winding up his
attacks, jump behind him and either attack while you're in the air to flail
your chain around, or attack on the ground.  Just make sure to watch out for
his Psypher and run away when he pulls it out.  Once you outrun it, go back to
attacking him.  You should know what attacks to expect since you fought him
with almost every character so far (minus Cornelius).  Once his life gets down
past half, follow up your combos with a Phozon Burst to end it quickly.

----------------------------------BOSS-----------------------------------------


=========
Chapter 6
=========

----------------------------------BOSS-----------------------------------------

-You'll be fighting both Belial and Beldor at the same time.  This fight may
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.

----------------------------------BOSS-----------------------------------------

Epilogue
========

----------------------------------BOSS-----------------------------------------

-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.

=========
Chapter 1
=========

----------------------------------BOSS-----------------------------------------

-You'll fight Ingway in his Darkova form for a second time.  Unlike the first
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
falls.

----------------------------------BOSS-----------------------------------------


=========
Chapter 2
=========

----------------------------------BOSS-----------------------------------------

-You'll fight King Gallon in all his beauty.  First off, you may notice that
the floor will shake and the walls will crumble.  This will NOT affect how the
battle goes, so don't worry about those.  As for Gallon himself, just like with
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
fight.  Repeat this whole process until he falls.

----------------------------------BOSS-----------------------------------------


=========
Chapter 3
=========

----------------------------------BOSS-----------------------------------------

-This time, it's round two with Onyx, except that you're fighting him with
Mercedes this time instead of Oswald.  Onyx still retains the same arsenal of
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.

----------------------------------BOSS-----------------------------------------


=========
Chapter 4
=========

----------------------------------BOSS-----------------------------------------

-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.

----------------------------------BOSS-----------------------------------------


=========
Chapter 5
=========

----------------------------------BOSS-----------------------------------------

-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*
