First Boss battle tips.
The first boss battle is surprising hard for the first boss battle in the game. At first it looks like Ghirahim isn't doing a thing to fight back. This isn't so. He'll block you rather easily and if your not careful he'll disarm you and use your own sword against you. If this happens it best to dodge till he drops it. Just keep attacking him till he gets his own weapon out. Now this guy is fast and will doge a lot. Often he'll come up behind you this is when you quickly turn and hit him. Around now he should also be shooting red things at you. Just try to dodge them if not slash them. He'll also knell down when he does it means hes about to hit you with a powerful attack. Run at him and attack before he can launch the attack. Just keep this up and you should beat him. Items I suggest you bring are two fairies if he does kill you before you can heal yourself the fairies will bring you back to life.
