    Walkthrough - Ancient Ys Vanished: The Final Chapter (Ys II) (Continued)

    Time Attack

    Time Attack, also known as the Boss Rush in other Ys games, is a mode in which you must face all seven bosses of Ys I in a row.

      • During each boss fight, you will be wearing equipment and be at an average level of what you would have been when you fought the boss during the story. Because of this, you'll most likely have a harder time against the bosses, especially if you did ANY grinding in the main game.
      • If you die, the boss rush ends.

    If you need refreshers on the boss strategies, click the links for each one below, as needed. Or you can just copy and paste the YouTube addresses to watch the boss fight for yourself. The first link is my Time Attack; if that's not enough, the individual bosses themselves are below it.

    A fast-moving hard-shelled monster that bustles about in the abandoned mine. Due to its quick speed within a dimly-lit environment, the Menon presents real danger.

    A monstrous phoenix from the abandoned mine. Why a bird would dwell underground, and why its flames shed no light whatsoever, are both questions without answers.

    A half-bug half-man that dwells in the abandoned mine. Its exoskeleton grants it excellent defense and speed alike. Attacks with chaotic sword-swipes.
