###############################

First off: This is the first guide I've ever made, so don't expect it to be
           perfect.

Secondly: The guide won't get too comprehensive until after a few
           updates. I'm just telling you so that you know what to expect. 

Lastly: This guide contains SPOILERS, so be fore-warned...

Well anyway, welcome and I hope my guide is in some way helpful to you.

Secion 3 (Boss Information)
###############################

***********************************************
Boss Fight #1) The Yawn (first encounter)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
What it looks like: A big-ass snake.

Where you fight it: In the attic.

Why you fight it: It attacks you in the attic where one of the 4 Death Masks
                  you need is located.

Difficulty: Medium

Boss's attacks: A lunging bite (poisonous) and a squeeze attack (has only
                happened to me at low health)

Weapon to use: Shotgun

Strategies:
#1) Well, you don't even really have to fight it. You can go to the back of the
    attic, grab the death mask and run away. This however will make it harder
    to kill on the second encounter but is probably the best decision if you're
    playing as Chris...
#2) Run around and shoot it with the shotgun, or whatever you may have. Never
    stay in one place too long, and keep your distance.

Notable occurences: 
#1) If your Jill and you save Richard, he will come in and help you fight.
    After the Yawn is floored though, it will get up and swallow him. At this
    point you can take his assault shotgun.
#2) If you're bitten during the fight, you will be poisoned.
    Just use serum to heal yourself after the battle. If you took too long
    getting the serum to Richard earlier, you can just use that, but if you
    saved him, you must get more from the drug room. If you're Jill, you just
    get it yourself, but if you're Chris, Rebecca must bring it to you...

***********************************************
Boss Fight #2) Lisa Trevor (first encounter)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
What it look like: A shackled, hunch-backed girl with several faces stuck on 
                   her own.

Where you fight it: In the cabin

Why you fight it: She knocks you out after you get the square crank. When you
                  come to, she attacks you.

Difficulty: Simple

Boss's attacks: Swipe with arms and overhead smash (only happens at low health 
                I believe) 

Weapon to use: None

Strategies:
#1) Run past her and escape. She shouldn't be able to hit you unless you are 
    careless. Do NOT fight her as she is invincible...

***********************************************
Boss Fight #3) Momma Neptune
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
What it looks like: A big-ass shark.

Where you fight it: In the aqua ring.

Why you fight it: It knocks the Gallery Key behind it after the aqua ring is 
                  drained. You must kill it to get to the key.

Difficulty: Simple

Boss's attacks: Before the water is drained she can jump out and eat you. 
                After it's drained I believe she can only hurt you by flapping 
                around... 

Weapon to use: Nothing or the handgun depending on the strategy you use

Strategies:
#1) After you drain the water in the aqua ring, go down to the bottom level 
    where Momma Neptune is. There will be a tiny pool of water keeping it 
    alive. Run carefully through it and board the platform in the back. Push
    the machine on it into the pool and use the controls to activate it. Momma 
    Neptune will be electrocuted to death.
#2) After you drain the water in the aqua ring, go down to the bottom level 
    where Momma Neptune is. Keep shooting it with the handgun (or whatever you 
    have) and she will eventually die.

Notable occurences: 
#1) If you're Chris and you saved Richard, when you enter the aqua ring Momma 
    Neptune will attempt to eat you. Richard will come in and push you out of 
    the way, but will be eaten himself.


***********************************************
Boss Fight #4) Plant 42
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
What it looks like: A GIANT plant with a central core and tendrils everywhere.

Where you fight it: In a room of the guardhouse

Why you fight it: It has the Helmet Key which you need.

Difficulty: Medium Hard

Boss's attacks: Tendril Swipe and Acid Bath

Weapon to use: Grenade Launcher with flame rounds or Magnum Revolver

Strategies:
#1) Run in and shoot it's core till' it dies while avoiding it's constant 
    attacks. Be wary of Acid Bath as it can poison you.
#2) (AS JILL) Make V-Jolt and put it on Plant 42's roots. This will weaken it
    and when you go to fight it, it will grab you nd won't let go. Barry will
    then come in and save you with a flamethrower.
#3) (AS CHRIS) If Plant 42 grabs you and won't let go, you will have to take
    control of Becky and make V-Jolt to put on its roots. It will then let go
    and you can kill it.


***********************************************
Boss Fight #5) Black Tiger Spider
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
What it looks like: A big-ass tarantula.

Where you fight it: In a web-covered room in the underground tunnels.

Why you fight it: It intercepts you when you enter its lair.

Difficulty: Easy

Boss's attacks: Tackle Bite and Acid Spray

Weapon to use: Shotgun/Assault Shotgun

Strategies:
#1) Just keep dodging and shooting. It doesn't take many shots to kill. The 
    only challenge is that it has normal spiders helping it fight.


***********************************************
Boss Fight #6) Lisa Trevor (second encounter)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
What it look like: A shackled, hunch-backed girl with several faces stuck on 
                   her own.

Where you fight it: In a looping corridor in the underground caves

Why you fight it: She roams the tunnels and attacks when you get near her.

Difficulty: Simple

Boss's attacks: Swipe with arms and overhead smash (only happens at low health 
                I believe) 

Weapon to use: None

Strategies:
#1) Run by her and find a switch on the wall. Pull it and go to the locked door
    with the wall-mount next to it. Put the Broken Flamethrower in it and 
    escape. Don't try to kill her. She is invincible...


***********************************************
Boss Fight #7) The Yawn (second encounter)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
What it looks like: A big-ass snake.

Where you fight it: In the library.

Why you fight it: It attacks you as you enter the library and you must kill it
                  so that it will slam into the bookcase and shatter the glass
                  that keeps you from taking the Book of Curse 2.

Difficulty: Hard

Boss's attacks: A lunging bite (poisonous) and a squeeze attack (has only 
                happened to me at low health)

Weapon to use: Magnum Revolver

Strategies:
#1) Shoot, run, and repeat. It seems like it attacks more often this time
    though, so watch out. After a while, it will go down but watch your health.
    One attack can cause you to drop from fine to red caution...


***********************************************
Boss Fight #8) Lisa Trevor (third encounter)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
What it look like: A shackled, hunch-backed girl with several faces stuck on
                   her own, tentacles everywhere, and a giant eye on her back.

Where you fight it: Altar room

Why you fight it: She attacks you when you enter her mother's tomb.

Difficulty: Medium easy

Boss's attacks: Not sure. I defeated her without her attacking me, but she
                jumps around alot, so she seems much harder...

Weapon to use: None or Magnum Revolver depending on the strategy you use.

Strategies:
#1) Keep running away from her and push the 4 statues on the platform off. She
    will yell "MO-THER" and jump off.
#2) Not quite sure about how, but I've been told that you can shoot her so that
    she falls and grabs the ledge at which point you can just shoot her off.

Notable occurences:
#1) If you're Jill, you can give Barry his gun or keep it. If you keep it,
    he dies. If you give it to him, he helps you fight.
#2) If you're Chris, Wesker helps you fight her.


***********************************************
Boss Fight #9) t-002 Tyrant (first encounter)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
What it looks like: A tall pale man with his veins and heart on the outside and
                    a giant claw on his hand.

Where you fight it: In the Tyrant cultivation lab.

Why you fight it: Wesker lets it loose in the Tyrant cultivation room and you
                  must kill it to escape. 

Difficulty: Hard

Boss's attacks: Double Slap

Weapon to use: Magnum Revolver or Grenade Launcher

Strategies:
#1) Keep running and avoid his claw. One attack from him will do massive
    damage. After quite a few shots, he will go down...

Notable occurences:
#1) If you're Jill and you saved Barry, Wesker will tell you how he framed
    him and will hold you at gunpoint but Barry will shoot the gun from his
    hands. Wesker will still manage to release the Tyrant and will be assaulted
    by it and subsequently knocked out. Barry will stand up to it but he will
    also be beaten down.
#2) If you're Chris and you saved Rebecca, Wesker will tell you about how he
    was just using S.T.A.R.S. for his own gain and will shoot Rebecca. After
    the battle you learn that Rebecca was wearing a bullet-proof vest though.

***********************************************
Boss Fight #10) t-002 Tyrant (second encounter)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
What it looks like: A tall pale man with his veins and heart on the outside and
                    a giant claw on his hand.

Where you fight it: On the heliport

Why you fight it: It attacks you on the heliport while you wait for Brad to
                  arrive with the chopper.

Difficulty: Hard

Boss's attacks: Double Slap, Claw Swipe and Lift attack

Weapon to use: Rocket Launcher

Strategies:
#1) Keep running and don't let him hit you. Only shoot him if he is about to
    attack a team member. Normal weapons do nothing to him, but attacking him
    will draw his attention to you. This is good if you don't want your
    partners to die. He can do insane damage and his Claw Swipe knocks you
    incredibly far away, but you must hold out for awhile. After about a minute
    Brad throws a Rocket Launcher down to you. Use it and destroy the Tyrant.
    Sometimes he will deflect the shot, but if he does, just fire again.

Notable occurences: 
#1) If you're Jill and you saved Barry, he will help you fight. You must
    protect him though or the Tyrant will kill him. If you saved Chris, he will
    be knocked out right before the battle.
#2) If you're Chris and you saved Rebecca, she will help you fight. You must
    protect her though or she will be killed by Tyrant. If you saved Jill, she
    will be knocked out right before the battle.
