         [2] Raleigh ................................................ [froges]
    Difficulty: Easy
    Episode: #1, Tide of Terror
    Level: The Eye of the Storm
    
    In the first part of the fight, Raleigh is bloated up and is chasing you.
    Stay about 5 steps or a platform ahead of him, but make sure you leave
    room for when he deflates. At that point, quickly turn around and whack
    him. Part two is just the same as part one, but with just one platform.
    Not too hard, just make sure that he doesn't get you and that you get
    him when he deflates. The next part is similar to part one, except when
    Raleigh jumps on a platform, it will fall into the water. Make sure that
    doesn't happen to you. The platform lights up red when he jumps on it,
    except the time he deflates. Look at the lights to know when to jump back
    and guarantee a hit. The last part is like part two in that you and
    Raleigh are on the same platform the whole time. This time you have to
    jump over his tongue like you're playing jump rope. After a couple jumps,
    you'll get into a rhythm and it'll get easier. When he deflates, hit
    him one more time to emerge victorious.
    
         [3] Muggshot ............................................... [baddog]
    Difficulty: Medium
    Episode: #2, Sunset Snake Eyes
    Level: Last Call
    
    The first two parts are nearly identical, so I'll group them into one. You'll
    have to spin around all the mirrors by hitting them. Simple? Not if a crazy,
    trigger-happy dog is running after you. Hide behind the objects around
    everywhere or jump to avoid his gunfire. Ok, part three is evil. You have to
    spire jump across a chandelier. Go towards a mirror and turn it quickly, then
    head to the next one, as fast as possible. Remember to go QUICKLY so you
    don't get shot, because I know you don't want to go through those other parts
    again.
    
         [4] Mz. Ruby ............................................... [voodoo]
    Difficulty: Medium ~ Hard
      ~ Note: If you have the PlayStation 2 version and have an ok sense of
        rhythm, this fight shouldn't be anything to worry about. Although, if
        you aren't very rhythmic or bought the PlayStation 3 version, bump the
        difficulty up a few notches. Much of this fight is based on rhythm, and
        in the PS3 version, the soundtrack has changed, consequently making
        this fight out of sync. Sorry!
    Episode: #3, Vicious Voodoo
    Level: A Deadly Dance
    
    For the first part of the fight, just spire jump up to Mz. Ruby, not getting
    smashed, and hit her when you get there. Parts two through four require a
    series of button taps in rhythm to get to her. Once you get to her, whack
    her. I'm sorry if you have trouble, this fight is very difficult!! Here are
    the button taps:
    
    Part 2: 
     - Square, Square, Square
     - Triangle, Triangle, Triangle
     - Circle, Circle, Circle
     - Square, Circle, Square

     - Square, Triangle, Circle
     - Circle, Triangle, Square

     - Square, Square, Triangle, Triangle, Circle, Circle, X
     - Circle, Circle, Triangle, Triangle, Square, Square, X

    Congrats if you made it this far, this is one of the harder
    fights!
    
         [5] Panda King ............................................. [saymar]
    Difficulty: Easy
    Episode: Fire in the Sky
    Level: Flame Fu!
    
    Move to the right and forward to make it to Panda King while avoiding his
    attacks. When you make it to him the first time, he only has one attack.
    He will say "I reveal" and sweep some fire. Go back a little and jump to
    avoid it. The second time he gets a new attack. He says "arms of thunder"
    and then hits the ground in his least ferocious attack. Just jump. The
    third time he gets his last attack added to his arsenal. He will say
    something like "ooming chop" and chop you. Jump back quickly!! You'll
    have to come back a few more times, but he won't have any more attacks.
    I guess they decided we needed a breather from Mz. Ruby..
    
         [6] Clockwerk .............................................. [wierdo]
    Difficulty: Hard
    Episode: #5, The Cold Heart of Hate
    Level: A Strange Reunion
    
    In part one, shoot the glowing body parts after avoiding his shots. Don't
    worry if you have trouble, it gets easy with practice. In part two, do
    the same, but when the big rings come out, go through the middle of them.
    In part three, use all of your thief skills to make it to Clockwerk's head.
    Take your time, there's no rush. When you get to his head, KILL IT. Omigosh
    this part is so fun!!! Anyway, after that you win. Woohoo. If you're having
    trouble, just remember to play it safe.
