    --------------------------------------------------------
    i. Introduction: What is BOSS*BOSS*BANG*BANG	(INTRO)
    --------------------------------------------------------
    
      BOSS*BOSS*BANG*BANG is the second-to-last (Or perhaps
    third-to-last) event you will open up in Story mode.  It
    is so completely different from the rest of the game
    that you cannot play it at all in the same manner as you
    normally would.
    
      TO UNLOCK BOSS*BOSS*BANG*BANG...
     -Finish Riddle of the Incan Empire
     -Finish Viewtiful Cartoon World
     -Finish Captain Blue Begins
     -Finish Truth of the Black Film
     -Finish Gulliver's Battles
     -Finish Atlantis: Four Adventures of the Sea
     -Finish Les Acteurs Incroyable
     -Collect V-Puzzles 1-6
     -Finish Riddle of the Incan Empire - Special Edition
     -Finish Viewtiful Cartoon World - Special Edition
     -Finish Captain Blue Begins - Special Edition
     -Finish Truth of the Black Film - Special Edition
     -Finish Gulliver's Battles - Special Edition
     -Finish Atlantis: Four Adventures of the Sea - Special Edition
    
      Sounds like a lot of work?  Well, it sort of is, but
    not really.  By the time you unlock this, you will have
    unlocked, at the very LEAST, Sprocket, Rachel, and all
    six Unhenshined characters.  You'll also have unlocked
    the Special Edition stages for Reels 1-6.
    
      So what is BOSS*BOSS*BANG*BANG?  It's simple.  Your
    single character - ENTIRELY BY HIMSELF (And this is the
    reason it's so unique - no other time in the game will
    you be by yourself) - will have to take on and defeat
    all 7 Major Boss Battles in the game.  You just have to
    win the fights by taking down the boss' health - you don't
    have to score really high or anything.  However, you have
    to avoid dying once during each battle, or you'll have to
    start that battle over again (The 'Don't Fall Down Once'
    condition')
    
      Now, you're probably asking yourself: Why should I
    bother doing all this work, and completing one of the
    hardest competitions in the game?  First off, you will
    instantly recieve a new character: Dark Hero Jet Black.
    You will also unlock the last Special Edition stage -
    the Special Edition of 7-B... Lastly, you will open up
    the last Story competition: 'Red Hot Rumble', after which
    you will unlock Fighter Bianky and Friends.
    
      Besides that, it's awesomely fun!  So pick a character
    and start fighting!
    
    
    --------------------------------------------------------
    iv. Boss Strategies				(BOSS0)
    --------------------------------------------------------
    
    This section covers the information you need to know
    about the bosses in BOSS*BOSS*BANG*BANG, including their
    patterns and the general manner in which you will be
    kicking their asses.  Even knowing this information will
    allow you to perform better against them, whether in
    BOSS*BOSS*BANG*BANG or in actual competitions...
    
    
    
    --------------------------------------------------------
      1-B) Viracocha				(BOSS1)
         Riddle of the Incan Empire
         Treasure Guardian Viracocha
    --------------------------------------------------------
    
    Attacks:
      -He will charge up his swords with electricity.  This
    will prevent you from hitting him without a VFX Power
    or ranged attack.
      -He likes to jump around, but it's fairly easy to
    judge where he's going to jump to.
      -If four Alert markers appear on the ground next to
    him, run away.  He will throw his swords up, and then
    they will land at those spots.  This leaves his swords
    out in the open (See further down)
      -If a large 'DANGER' marker scrolls in a direction, he
    will either charge in that direction, or throw his swords.
    If he does the latter, see further down.
      -He will jump off-screen after throwing his swords, and
    then he will come back and charge them up again.
    
      Basic, isn't he?  The core idea is to wait for him to
    throw his swords.  Then, take them out with any attack.
    When he goes to charge up his swords, he will get fried
    and stunned - this is your chance to deal major damage.
    After that, just retreat and wait for another chance
    to beat him senseless...
    
    
    
    --------------------------------------------------------
      2-B) Hulk Davidson				(BOSS2)
         Viewtiful Cartoon World
         Hulk Davidson is in Town
    --------------------------------------------------------
    
    Attacks:
      -Jumps around.  There's a shockwave near where he lands,
    so be sure to jump yourself
      -A couple Alert markers appear, and then he swings his
    axe.  Just jump over it.
      -Lowers his head, then charges forward.  Jump over him
    and he will charge into the wall, the big idiot, and stun
    himself, just like in the first Viewtiful Joe.
      -Stomps the ground.  The back of the area will open up,
    and a couple missiles will fly towards you.
      -After being stunned, his axe will fall down towards
    him.  This can hurt you.  If you're attacking when he
    catches it, he will throw it at you.
      -If you try to attack him, he will usually block it.
    
      This guy is so easy it's ridiculous.  Seriously!  Use
    the X button to do a normal attack on a nearby Bianky
    or other character, to knock him/her/it into the Hulk.
    He'll be stunned.  Run over and wail on him, until you
    see his axe falling.  Just run and grab it.  If the
    missiles come towards you, hit those, and they'll lock
    onto him instead, hit him, and stun him...
    
    
    
    --------------------------------------------------------
      3-B) Fire Leo & Frost Tiger			(BOSS3)
         Captain Blue Begins
         Super Brothers
    --------------------------------------------------------
    
    TEAM:
      Fire Leo and Frost Tiger switch on and off.  Fire Leo
    goes in first and has the top Life meter, Frost Tiger
    comes in second and has the bottom Life meter.  When you
    take out one, the other will come in, and you'll no
    longer be able to stun them...
    
    FIRE LEO:
    Attacks (On Field):
      -Spits Fireballs at you.  Just dodge
      -Blocks your attacks for a brief period of time.  Keep
    hitting him and the shield will break.
      -Slashes at you
      -When near death/Solo, he'll go to one end of the screen
    and start spinning.  He'll fire off a lot of fireballs,
    so try your best to dodge them.
    Attacks (Supporting):
      -Shoots five fireballs at you.  These can be in a
    horizontal line, a vertical line, or in a circle.  You
    can see them coming, though, so dodge.
      -Shoots up several hot boulders.  Avoid them when they
    drop, then punch them into Frost Tiger to stun him.
    
    FROST TIGER:
    Attacks (On Field):
      -Does a three-slash combo.  Stay away, or jump over
    him.
      -Runs to the edge of the area, flips, and then smashes
    the ground, causing ice to shoot up in front of him
    along the whole length of the field.  Jump when you see
    him starting this move, and stay in the air as long as
    possible.  He'll only do this if he's the last one on
    the field, or near death.
    Attacks (Supporting):
      -Fires in rings of ice either high or low.  Just try
    to keep an eye out for them, as they're hard to see,
    but they don't have a great area of effect...
      -Throws up several snowballs.  Avoid them when they
    drop, then punch them into Fire Leo to stun him.
    
    
    Since Fire Leo doesn't do his boulder-throwing until
    Frost Tiger is nearly dead, you'll more than likely beat
    up Fire Leo first.  Stun him using the snowballs, then
    beat the living heck out of him.  After that, it's just
    a matter of hitting Frost Tiger hard enough to stop his
    attacks before he can massacre you, and dodging them...
    On BOSS*BOSS*BANG*BANG, this is the second-hardest
    battle, as you have two bosses to deal with... To deal
    the most damage to these idiots, use Zoom whenever
    possible.  Just remember to jump over fireballs...
    
    
    
    --------------------------------------------------------
      4-B) Kuwaga					(BOSS4)
         Truth of the Black Film
         Bouncer
    --------------------------------------------------------
    
    Attacks:
      -Teleports around.  Not an attack, but very annoying.
      -He'll jump into the air, and swing around.  Three
    arrows will shoot from straight down to diagonally
    down-forward, and will then explode.
      -Jumps to the center, then Alert markers appear all
    around him.  He'll fire arrows in all directions, then
    all of them will explode.  Go to a bottom corner of the
    map for best protection.
      -Splits into four images.  Three will turn into bombs
    and an item pickup when hit, damaging you, but the other
    is real.  If you wait for a few moments, the fakes will
    dissolve and just leave behind the items.  If you hit
    him as he goes to make the images, they will all shatter
    instantly.  Don't be below them or you'll take heavy
    damage from the bombs, but all the items will instantly
    drop down.
      -Flies off screen.  A chain of Alert markers will then
    appear - he will fly through and grab you along that
    path, so avoid it!
      -After flying in, he will begin to charge up energy.
    He is most vunleurable at this time.  After, he will
    teleport around.  Then a large Alert marker will appear,
    and he will do a super-strong attack with his sword.  Use
    VFX to dodge it, if possible, since it's very hard to
    dodge otherwise.
    
    Kuwaga isn't hard, really, just annoying.  Save a
    Mach Speed power for when he charges up his energy sword
    so you can survive it (it does a ridiculous amount of
    damage...), but other than that, keep following him and
    pound at him.  He shouldn't be too hard, technically,
    but he does a lot of damage... To deal the most damage
    _to_ him, use your Zoom right as he's charging up his
    sword and wail on him.  He'll go down in no time.
    
    
    
    --------------------------------------------------------
      5-B) F-Guardian				(BOSS5)
         Gulliver's Battles
         Spider-Machine
    --------------------------------------------------------
    
    Note: Whenever you knock out the boss's crystal, it will
      change 'Phases' before return to its attack pattern.
    
    Attacks:
      -Normal Phase: Jumps into the background and fires off
    two Sonic blasts.  Though these are slightly large, they
    are easy to avoid.
      -Red Phase: Drops rocks down from where its legs step
    as it walks on the cieling.
      -Blue Phase: Fires out one or two lasers.  Stand under
    it to avoid them.
      -Purple Phase: One side will show lots of Alert markers.
    Run away from that side to avoid the laser.
      -Yellow Phase: Shoots out six webs.  Stand under the
    platforms to avoid it, or stand directly under it.  The
    webs don't do damage, they just stun you and cause you
    to lose Viewtifuls.
    
    This thing is insanely easy on BOSS*BOSS*BANG*BANG,
    because it only does the same attacks over and over again.
    To get it to switch phases, and deal real damage, grab a
    Zoom VFX Orb and pound away at the cockpit for a few
    moments, then wail on the energy crystal as it flies
    around.
    
    
    
    --------------------------------------------------------
      6-B) Poseidon					(BOSS6)
         Atlantis: Four Adventures of the Sea
         Poseidon Avenger
    --------------------------------------------------------
    
    Attacks:
      -Fires laser beams at a single point.  The beams don't
    do any damage, but after they stop there will be a large
    explosion there.
      -Jumps and shakes the screen.  Danger markers will
    appear at four points, then rocks will fall down.  Easy
    to dodge, and you can knock the rocks into him.
      -Swings his trident.  This starts off a flow from one
    of the corners.  Collect powerups there, but avoid the
    boulders and mines.  Don't get caught at the end, either.
      -While the flow is on, he will stomp at about the
    middle of the screen.  Stay away from the Alert marker.
      -His blue orb will float out and start hovering over
    you.  Eventually, it will stop, then fall.  Really easy
    to dodge, and you can knock it out of the air with a
    single hit.
      -Will lean down, then lift up his trident.  Lightning
    will crash down.  I'm not sure if you can avoid this
    without using VFX...
    
    Though you may remember this battle as being chaotic,
    it's very simple.  His attacks are, for the most part,
    easy to watch for and realise they're about to happen.
    Any VFX Power will destroy this guy, but especially Zoom.
    Mach Speed has also been known to knock his head off.
    Yes, if you don't remember, you have to target his head.
    Try using a diagonal attack to kick the small enemies
    around the area into him.
    
    
    
    
    --------------------------------------------------------
      7-B SE) Tsukumo				(BOSS7)
         Les Acteurs Incroyable - Special Edition
         Final Battle
    --------------------------------------------------------
    
    That's right!  It's the Special Edition Final Boss, and
    you have to fight him by yourself!  What does this mean?
    It means that his attacks are very powerful, and you now
    have to actually pay attention to what's going on (not
    just sit around and let the AI finish him off, since you
    don't even have to touch the controller during Les
    Acteurs Incroyable to win...).  Trust me.  He's tough.
    
    Attack Combinations:
      -Stomps and causes a shockwave that travels the whole
    length.  He will then lift up one arm, and charge it up
    with glowing energy.  Various chunks of glowy debris
    will fall down in a line.  A couple Bianky and a VFX Orb
    or two will appear, as well.  Be sure to grab these and
    kill the Bianky - this is the only way to get any power
    ups during this battle!
      -Stomps and causes a shockwave, like before.  However,
    his hand will electrify.  He will then begin to trace a
    line in front of him with the electricity.  A magnetic
    field will be formed that will hold anybody in it in
    place along that bit of the ground, then he will punch
    another shockwave strong enough to do a 1-hit KO!
      -Stomps the ground, but now more platforms appear.  He
    will swing his hand out and grab you, shake some V-Points
    loose, and then drop you, finally dealing damage.
      -Slams the ground with both hands.  Though easy to
    dodge, this causes gravity to lessen for about 15 seconds
    following the attack, making you fall slower.  Rather
    annoying.  This attack may, however, cause gravity to
    increase for about the same length of time.  This is
    almost better, though it can make it a bit harder to dodge
    his attacks effectively.
      -The top half leans back, and a large black hole
    appears at his core.  Stay away from it, but be careful
    of debris that will appear from the edges of the area and
    go inwards.  Use a VFX Power to avoid taking damage here,
    if you can, because it's almost impossible to avoid getting
    hit at least once.
    
    This guy is tough, once again.  The target point to attack
    is the foot that makes the stomp, or the hands smashing
    the ground.  Basically, you'll want to run in, attack, and
    then run out.  Most of his moves take off about half of
    your health (a bit more if you're unhenshined!), so don't
    expect this bastard to be easy!  Though you may want to
    save your VFX powers, remember that another one will only
    appear after using your current one!
    
    And if you're wondering, the single most powerful attack
    you can use against this guy is the VFX SE.
    
    
    
    --------------------------------------------------------
    iii. Beating BOSS*BOSS*BANG*BANG		(CHR00)
    --------------------------------------------------------
    
    The following section gives character-specific info on
    what techniques to use for each character, and the best
    ways to get quick times (Thus, the most effective
    strategies).  This doesn't go into detail on each boss,
    however - for boss patterns, go to the previous section
    and look through it!
    
    
    --------------------------------------------------------
      02) Sexy Silvia				(CHR02)
    --------------------------------------------------------
    
    Difficulty: Medium
    
    General Tips: Sexy Silvia is at a major advantage
    against the bosses because of her great ranged attacks.
    Well, okay, great is stretching it.  You'll want to use
    the Triple Sexy Beam (Direction + X), and not the Charge
    Beam (Hold X) against the enemy, except in those rare
    circumstances where you need the infinite range.  Triple
    Sexy Beam is faster to pull off and hits three times,
    overall resulting in more damage.  She's also very fast.
    The only thing is that she won't do much damage, so your
    battles may be fairly long...
    
    Vs. Viracocha: Silvia can wail on this guy with any
    ranged attack she wants for a while.  When VFX Sound
    Effect appears, use it and wail on him (from a distance,
    or else you punch the swords and the attack just gets
    stopped).  Remember that, if you're quick, you can
    activate Sound Effect twice in a row if you start
    charging up again right after using it once...
    
    Vs. Hulk Davidson: He's not too bad, really.  Nail
    enemies into him, then keep nailing him with Triple Sexy
    Beam.  This will keep you a safe distance away so the
    axe doesn't hit you when it falls.  Or, you can rush in
    and use a VFX Zoom to deal extra damage, or Slow/Mach
    Speed near the end to still deal damage and avoid the
    danger of the large falling axe.
    
    Vs. Fire Leo & Frost Tiger: Because of how slowly she
    takes these two down, Sexy Silvia still will find these
    guys to be a challenge.  However, when zoomed, her normal
    attack has awesome range and should be used to your
    advantage.  Break Fire Leo's shield with Triple Sexy
    Beam, then knock snowballs into him and Zoom, Slow, or
    just attack normally - either way, your goal is to beat
    him senseless.  When Frost Tiger is out, keep jumping
    over him and firing at him from behind with the Charge
    Beam if you can manage it (his 'hit' animation causes
    him to only be hit by one hit from the Triple Sexy Beam,
    and the Charge Beam is stronger).  When Frost Tiger
    starts to go all super-ice-attack on you, keep running
    towards him and nailing him.  Not too hard...
    
    Vs. Kuwaga: Sexy Silvia has this one in the bag as it
    stands.  Her Triple Sexy Beam will take down Kuwaga with
    speed, and when Zoomed, she can pound the living heck
    out of him while he's charging up.  If you can beat
    Kuwaga with any other character, you can do it with her.
    
    Vs. Poseidon: The Charge Beam will come in very handy
    here, since you can't reach Poseidon's head on a
    diagonal using the Triple Sexy Beam, and the Charge Beam
    will hit multiple times.  It even has a tendency to
    cause his head to fall off.  Other than that, just avoid
    Poseidon's attacks and wail on him with VFX Powers.
    
    Vs. Tsukumo: Easy as pie, compared to many short-ranged
    characters.  Wail on him with either the Charge Beam or
    Triple Sexy Beam, use your VFX Slow and Sound Effect to
    enhance your attack abilities, and save VFX Mach Speed
    for evading his black hole attack.  Since you have range,
    if you're quick you should be able to safely stay out of
    danger of many of his attacks and still be able to deal
    out some damage.
    
    
    --------------------------------------------------------
      03) Captain Blue Jr.				(CHR03)
    --------------------------------------------------------
    
    Difficulty: Very Easy
    
    General Tips: The most powerful move Captain Blue Jr. -
    or almost any character, for that matter - can use is
    his Tornado (Hold X).  For attacking targets that are
    out of reach of that move, use either the normal attack
    if you can reach them without jumping, or use Cyclone
    (Direction + X) to hit them if you have to jump at them.
    
    Vs. Viracocha: Get up close and personal quickly, and go
    Tornado on his Incan ass.  Pull away only when he powers
    up his swords, and even then try to keep pounding on him
    with Cyclone.  If you can't finish him off before he
    fires off his swords (And it is possible), take out the
    swords and just finish him off with another Tornado when
    he comes back.
    
    Vs. Hulk Davidson: Knock a Bianky into him with your
    normal attack, then run up and get Tornado going.  Use
    it for a while, then get away before the axe falls.  You
    have a fairly decent amount of time, but it takes a
    moment for Tornado to stop.
    
    Vs. Fire Leo & Frost Tiger: Since you have insane reach
    when Zoomed, use that to your advantage.  Knock the
    snowballs into Fire Leo and take him down in no time at
    all by using Zoom or Slow repeatidly against him.  Once
    Frost Tiger's out, just keep getting behind him or
    attacking from above until his 'hair' breaks, at which
    point keep following him around and avoid his ice
    shockwave.
    
    Vs. Kuwaga: A bit of a pain, but you may be able to
    score multiple hits with your regular attack.  Save a
    Zoom for when he goes to power up his sword, then just
    activate it and wail on him.  If you've done enough
    damage by then, he should fall quickly.
    
    Vs. F-Guardian: Zoom and the upwards normal attack
    will destroy his shield so quickly that he will never
    even get the chance to really attack you if you do it
    right...
    
    Vs. Poseidon: Once again, Captain Blue Jr.'s range
    comes to save him.  When zoomed, you can reach his head
    with ease for major damage.  Also, you can use the
    other VFX powers against him.  There's no good time to
    use Tornado, but Cyclone and Zoom will do the trick.
    
    Vs. Tsukumo: Having Jr.'s range is a major advantage
    here.  Jump a bit and start off a Tornado on the foot
    that makes each stomp, and only run once you know that
    you are in danger.  When he does the lightning grip
    attack, Tornado as long as you can then run a bit away,
    and keep pounding on the foot with the end of your reach
    using your normal attack or Cyclone.

      10) Heroine Sylvia				(CHR10)
    --------------------------------------------------------
    
    Difficulty: Very Hard
    
    General Tips: Heroine Sylvia really suffers in this, in
    all honesty.  Her only powerful move is the Sexy Butt
    Bump (normal attack to either side).  Mind you, this
    does a fair share of damage.  If you want range, you
    will have to bring out her Volleyball (Up+X) and then
    hit it, and it's not even that great.  You'll be relying
    on VFX powers to do a lot of your damage.  If you need
    a quick attack, use diagonal-up Y to strike rapidly.
    
    Vs. Viracocha: Not too hard, mind you.  Run up and start
    beating him senseless with the Sexy Butt Bump as long as
    you can.  Once he powers up, keep avoiding him and wail
    on him with VFX Powers.  When he throws his swords,
    evade and break them, then wail on him some more.  It
    shouldn't be too hard.
    
    Vs. Hulk Davidson: This guy's annoying.  His moves will
    one-hit-KO you.  Sexy Butt Bump into a Bianky to stun
    him, and then SBB him repeatedly, aided by Slow or Zoom.
    Especially Zoom.  Zoom will double the damage he takes,
    and if you get hit by the axe, you've got lots of
    defenses added on as well.  Just be careful regardless.
    
    Vs. Fire Leo & Frost Tiger:
      This is so ridiculously hard that it single-handidly
    makes Heroine Sylvia have one of the hardest B*B*B*B
    challenges!  Seriously!  In fact, this boss strategy
    will even get a special honor of having three paragraphs!
      First off, you have to take out Fire Leo's shield -
    draw him left so that he's out of range of the ice rings,
    then hit him quickly with diagonal-up Y.  This will take
    out his shield very quickly, as this is a fast attack.
    After, use the X-button move to hit a snowball into Fire
    Leo, then run over and wail on him with VFX-aided attacks.
    As for once he starts doing his rapid fireball attack,
    just dodge attacks from him and Frost Tiger for a while
    until he fires off about 4, then rush in and pound on him
    for a few moments.
      If and when he jumps away to bring Frost Tiger out,
    there is a simple pattern to follow.  Jump over Frost
    Tiger so you're behind him, and Sexy Butt Bump him once.
    Then just jump back over and repeat.  This will easily
    take him down enough that he will switch patterns to
    begin using his massive ice attack.  At this point, Fire
    Leo, if he's still around, will begin to fire up the
    boulders.  Hit them into Frost Tiger to stun him if you
    can, or just keep rushing towards him and pounding on
    him with VFX.  It'll keep him out of his ice smasher if
    you're pounding on him constantly.
    
    Vs. Kuwaga:
      This is, again, annoying, but not overly difficult.
    Once again, Kuwaga is vulneurable during his sword
    charging, so use Zoom and wail on him then.  Be sure to
    use Mach Speed as well to get in a couple hits.  This
    guy will be tricky, since Sylvia's only powerful attack
    is too slow to be able to be really effective against
    him.  However, he's still easy...
    
    Vs. F-Guardian:
      Use your Zoom and your Up+Y normal attack to do quick
    damage to this guy and break his shell, then Mach Speed
    or Slow to batter the crystal thingy.  Alternatively,
    you can Slow and Sexy Butt Bump this guy.  That works
    really well.  This is probably one of the easiest
    fights, regardless of character.
    
    Vs. Poseidon:
      This is a bit tricky, but if you use diagonal-up+Y
    attack when Zoomed, he shouldn't be too hard.  Also, use
    it on the little enemies around the area to make them
    fly into him for good damage, as well as the orb thingy
    and the boulders that fall down.  Mach Speed can also
    deal a lot of damage.  If you need health, just avoid
    his attacks until the water starts flowing - you can
    easily recharge your health then.  Shouldn't be too
    hard if you keep at it.
    
    Vs. Tsukumo:
      ...Ow.  Another hard battle, though not quite as hard
    as Fire Leo and Frost Tiger.  You'll need to either use
    the Sexy Butt Bump or Diagonal-Up+Y to damage him.
    Amplify your attacks with VFX powers, since about every
    third attack he does will cause another to drop if you
    don't have one.  Sound Effects is especially powerful
    here, so use it.  If you get Mach Speed, save it for
    defensive purposes.  Remember - run in, strike, and then
    run the hell away!  You don't have an effective ranged
    attack - other than that stuipd Volleyball that takes
    forever to get out - so this may be a fairly long battle
    in comparison to fighting him with some other
    characters...

      11) Young Blue Jr.				(CHR11)
    --------------------------------------------------------
    
    Difficulty: Easy
    
    General Tips: Just like Captain Blue Jr., Young Blue Jr.
    can own most of the bosses using Rapid Yo (Hold X).
    Unlike Cap. BJ, Young BJ does not leave behind a cyclone.
    While this may seem like a disadvantage, it allows him
    to quit the move faster and restart it again without
    waiting for the previous cyclone to end.  He is also
    much faster than Cap. BJ, but is very vulneurable.  Many
    attacks can one-hit-KO this poor kid.
    
    Vs. Viracocha: Get up close and personal quickly, and go
    Tornado on his Incan ass.  Pull away only when he powers
    up his swords, and even then try to keep pounding on him
    with Rapid Yo.  If you can't finish him off before he
    fires off his swords (And it is possible), take out the
    swords and just finish him off with another Rapid Yo when
    he comes back.
    
    Vs. Hulk Davidson: Knock a Bianky into him with your
    normal attack, then run up and get Rapid Yo going.  Use
    it for a while, then get away before the axe falls.  The
    absolute last thing you want is to get hit by this guy -
    you can NOT risk it!  Almost any attack this guy can do
    on you will one-hit-KO you!
    
    Vs. Fire Leo & Frost Tiger: Since you have insane reach
    when Zoomed, use that to your advantage.  Knock the
    snowballs into Fire Leo and take him down in no time at
    all by using Zoom or Slow repeatidly against him.  Once
    Frost Tiger's out, just keep getting behind him or
    attacking from above until his 'hair' breaks, at which
    point keep following him around and avoid his ice
    shockwave.
    
    Vs. Kuwaga: A bit of a pain, but you may be able to
    score multiple hits with your regular attack.  Save a
    Zoom for when he goes to power up his sword, then just
    activate it and wail on him.  If you've done enough
    damage by then, he should fall quickly.  If you don't
    get him down before he uses his sword, do whatever you
    can to avoid it - it will one-hit KO you.
    
    Vs. F-Guardian: Zoom and the upwards normal attack
    will destroy his shield so quickly that he will never
    even get the chance to really attack you if you do it
    right...
    
    Vs. Poseidon: Once again, Young Blue Jr.'s range comes
    to save him.  When zoomed, you can reach his head
    with ease for major damage.  Also, you can use the
    other VFX powers against him.  Cyclone and Zoom will do
    more than enough damage, and you can be a bit reckless
    here, since so many of his moves are easy to dodge and
    even those that aren't don't do much damage...
    
    Vs. Tsukumo: Having Jr.'s range is a major advantage
    here.  Jump a bit and start off a Rapid Yo on the foot
    that makes each stomp, and only run once you know that
    you are in danger.  When he does the lightning grip
    attack, do the Rapid Yo as long as you can and then run.
    This guy, strangely enough, doesn't do much more damage
    then he would normally to Unhenshined characters, but
    that's not to say that you can still afford to put
    yourself in danger.
