----------------------------------------------------------------------------

3: Bosses


1 Chunks(1/10): He Is CHUNKY

--------------
HP 20  
Att 1 
Thoreau
--------------

The first boss of the game is very simple. I guess that is obvious, anyway
Here is the strategy. He will jump around like an idiot trying to hit you.
Just simply run away from him to dodge it. When he lands pick him up and
Throw him. Now quickly jump on his head. Do this 10 times. Was that hard?

2 Fracktail(3/10): A Robotic Dragon

--------------
HP 20
Att 1
Thoreau
--------------

Again, this is an easy boss. He will come at you from different angles trying
To hit you. Just simply dodge him in 3d. When he starts coming at you from
The right side, flip Mario to 3d. Now jump on Fracktails back. Flip Mario
To 2d. Ignore the enemies and run straight to Fracktails head. Now you must
Pick up enemies and throw them at the glowing part of Fracktails head.
After a few hits Fracktail will attempt to throw you off his back. You can

A: Jump back on Fracktails head right when you are about to fall(tricky)
And continue the ass whooping or

B: Repeat the whole  process if you fall off.

It is not hard either way. He will go down quick. You get a pure heat!

--------------
HP 25
Att 1
Thoreau
--------------

3 Mimi(2/10) A Spider Monster

Phase 1: Run like Hell

Leave the room and continue through the rooms until you come to a dead end.
You can slide through the crack in the floor. Switch to 3d and go up the
blocks to the top level. The rest is easy just keep going  through the rooms
until you come to a room with a big Boo. Kill it by jumping on it numerous
times. Point the remote at the screen to find secret stairs. Go up these
and save your game in the next room. Head into the right hand room.
It is a bathroom.

Phase 2: Attack

After the game show its time to fight her. When she is on the ceiling
she will throw rubees at you. Just simply dodge them. When she is on the
ground jump on her head. Don't stop. Before long, she will expire. Another 
pure heart!

Note: The game show questions do not matter. If you don't know, the real one
have bugs around her.

--------------
HP 20
Att 2
Boomer
--------------

4 Boswer(2/10) The King of Evil in Mario Games

Phase 1: Where Is Bowser?

After the scene run forward jumping on the Koopas. They will have cannons
which are easily avoided. Eventually you will come to a castle with a red X
on it. Remember your first clue about the red X. Place a bomb by it. Kaboom.

Phase 2: One On One

It is time for another Mario/Bowser showdown. This one like all the other
encounters in Mario history and the bosses in this game are pretty simple.
Bowser will breathe fire which is easily avoidable by just getting to the
far end of Bowser. Damaging him is simple, place a bomb down and detonate it
when Bowser is within range. Do this 4 times.

--------------
HP 15
Att 1
Thudley
--------------

5 Tentacle Monster(2/10) Yes, An Underwater Boss

Sigh, another easy boss. Just stay near the top, dodging his tentacles.
Do you see the spots on him? Most of the time they are blue, sometimes red.
Here is the trick. When the tentacle comes up it will be blue. Count the
number of times it is blue. Why, you ask? Every 4th time the tentacle rises
it will be red. When it red get above him and do the butt stomp. This is why
I told you to stay near the top. 3 successful butt stomps will take care of
this overgrown son of a bitch.
--------------
HP 30
Att 2
Boomer
--------------

6 Dimentio(4/10) Finally Something Challenging

Well, this is a little harder than the other bosses. Mostly, it will just
take a little longer than the other fights. He shoots bolts at you, which
are somewhat annoying to dodge. Sometimes he will split in to two. Basically,
just keep jumping on his head. It won't take that long. I will update this
strategy if people find it hard, but I feel it is pretty damn easy.

7 Francis(5/10) One Nerdy Iguana
--------------
HP 40
Att 3
Boomer
--------------

Yes, can you feel this game get harder. For some boss battles, like this one,
I will split the strategies up into characters. I will do this if the 
difficulty is 5 or higher.

Mario: He has stealth camouflage which makes this battle a bitch. When he does
appear for a split second jump on his head or throw those little bastard
enemies at him. Get away when they turn red because(I think) they blow up.
Sometimes he will attempt to eat you. Shake the remote back and fort to free
yourself. Mario is not the recommended character.

Peach: He has stealth camouflage which makes this battle a bitch. When he does
appear for a split second jump on his head to throw those little bastard
enemies at him. Get away when they turn red because(I think) they blow up.
Sometimes he will attempt to eat you. Shake the remote back and fort to free
yourself. Not the recommended character.

Bowser: Okay, letís fry this fat ass. Just use Bowsers fire. It will make
short work of Francis. Kill the other enemies to keep the battle one on one.
Sometimes he will attempt to eat you. Shake the remote back and fort to free
yourself. Bowser is the recommended character. Claim your pure heart.

8 Mr. L(2/10): That Looks Like Luigi
--------------
HP 20
Att 3
None
--------------

This is damn simple. Don't stop jumping on his head. He will use healing
items sometimes, but he is so easy that it won' even matter.

9 Brobot(3/10): Luigi's Space Machine

--------------
HP 50?
Att ?
None
--------------

I was hoping for a boss like this. Too bad it is easy as hell. Just don't
stop shooting. The lasers are easy too dodge. This may take a while, but
it is really easy and fun. Get the pure heart.

10 Chunks(2/10) Again
--------------
HP 40
Att 4
Thoreau
--------------

This is the same exact fight. He will jump around like an idiot trying to hit
you. Just simply run away from him to dodge it. When he lands pick him up and
throw him. Now quickly jump on his head. Do this 10 times. Instead of jumping
on his head use Bowsers fire too make this shorter and easier.

11 Chunks(4/10: Youíre Starting To Piss Me Off
--------------
HP 60
Att 5
Thoreau
--------------

This time he has new attacks. Itís about time this dumbass learned a few
new moves. He will attempt to grab you. If he does get you, you will be thrown
around all over the place. He will throw a big green block at you sometimes.

12 King Croacus(5/10): A Huge Plant
--------------
HP 50
Att 7
Thoreau
--------------

Phase 1: Three Heads
This battle is kind of hard. From the main head are three other smaller heads.
For some boss battles, like this one, I will split the strategies up into 
characters. I will do this if the difficulty is 5 or higher.


Mario: Get on one of the smaller heads and wait until the big head opens up.
Jump on it. This is hard to do. You might need to use a healing item. Another
way is too pick them up and throw them up the main head. Get to the far end
and wait for the head to come down before picking it up. Expect to get hit
a lot. Mario is recommended because of his size.

Peach: Get on one of the smaller heads and wait until the big head opens up.
Jump on it. This is hard to do. You might need to use a healing item. Another
way is too pick them up and throw them up the main head. Get to the far end
and wait for the head to come down before picking it up. Expect to get hit
a lot. I don't recommend Peach.

Bowser: Get on one of the smaller heads and wait until the big head opens up.
Jump on it. This is hard to do. You might need to use a healing item. Another
way is too pick them up and throw them up the main head. Get to the far end
and wait for the head to come down before picking it up. Expect to get hit
a lot. Bowsers fire might work, but he is not recommended

Phase 2: One Head, Three Blades
This is the easy part. Just one big head to deal with. He will send out
blades, but they are real easy to avoid.

Mario: Just run around avoiding blades and when the head opens up jump on it.
This won't take long. If you want to be cautious use Mario.

Peach: 
Mario: Just run around avoiding blades and when the head opens up jump on it.
This won't take long. If you want to be cautious use Peach.

Bowser: Just run around avoiding blades and when the head opens up jump on it.
This won't take long. If you want to be offensive and end this quick, then
use Bowser.

Another pure heart!

14 Jade Bloopers(3/10): 20 Rounds of Fighting
--------------
HP 10-30
Att ?
Cudge
--------------

This is not really a boss fight, but it may give people some problems. For
easy kills, repeatedly use Bowsers fire breath or Cudge. Their main attacks
are just running into you and hitting you with their swords. Like I said
just use Bowsers fire and you will be fine.

15 Mimi(4/10): Stupid Mimicker
--------------
HP 60-70
Att 5
Thoreau
--------------

This battle can get annoying. A rubee circle will surround her. She will also
throw rubees at you. Pick them up and either wait for her to touch you(damaging
her since you are holding a rubee), or throw the rubees at her. I recommend
Bowser, but either way she is going to piss you off and make you use a healing
item or two.

16 Brobot(2/10): Luigi, Join Us
--------------
HP 25
Att 5
Boomer
--------------

Go into 3d and keep placing bombs down near it. You will get hurt, but
he will go down so quick that it won't even matter.

17 Bowser(4/10): Come Back
--------------
HP 40
Att 8
Boomer
--------------

Bowser hits real damn hard this time. The strategy remains the same though.
Bowser will breathe fire which is easily avoidable by just getting to the
far end of Bowser. Damaging him is simple, place a bomb down and detonate it
when Bowser is within range. Do this 7-10 times. Bowser has seen the light.

18 Chomps(3/10): Is This Final Fantasy or Mario
--------------
HP 30
Att ?
Boomer
--------------

Well, this fight reminded me of Final Fantasy. Hell that is how it is
fought. Come in with Bowser as your main character to do heavy damage.
If not, just offensive Pixyls, such as Cudge and Boomer. Thudley is good too. 
This is is not too hard. Piccolo can put them to sleep.

19 Bonechill(5/10): What A Cool Name
--------------
HP 80
Att 8
Thoreau
--------------

Mario: Tons of ice attacks is what he will use. Tons of frustration he will
cause you. Pick up the icicles and throw them at his head. Do this a bunch
of times. This will take a while and you may have to use healing items.
Mario is not the recommended character.

Peach: Tons of ice attacks is what he will use. Tons of frustration he will
cause you. Pick up the icicles and throw them at his head. Do this a bunch
of times. This will take a while and you may have to use healing items.
Peach is not the recommended character.

Bowser: Tons of ice attacks is what he will use. Tons of frustration he will
cause you. Pick up the icicles and throw them at his head. Do this a bunch
of times. This will take a while and you may have to use healing items.
Bowser is not the recommended character. His heavy damage will make it a
little easier.

Luigi: Use his super jump to make this fight super easy and super quick.
This fight will definitely be quicker. I highly recommend Luigi.

20 Chunks(3/10) One Last Fucking Time
--------------
HP 100
Att 9
Thoreau
--------------

Use Bowsers flame breath. Make this bastard crumble and fall before you.
He will attempt to grab you. If he does get you, you will be thrown
around all over the place. He will throw a big green block at you sometimes.
He will jump around like an idiot trying to hit you. Just simply run away
from him to dodge it. When he lands pick him up and throw him. Now quickly jump
on his head. Do this 10 times. Instead of jumping on his head use Bowsers fire
too make this shorter and easier. He is also a lot bigger.

21 Mimi(4/10: She is crafty
--------------
HP 120
Att 10
Thoreau
--------------

This battle can get annoying. A rubee circle will surround her. She will also
throw rubees at you. Pick them up and either wait for her to touch you(damaging
her since you are holding a rubee), or throw the rubees at her. You must
use Peach, which is hard. The blades are easy to dodge. Once she is stunned
jump on her head. This will destroy a leg. Once al the legs are gone, you win.

22 Dimentio(3/10) The End is Near
--------------
HP 80
Att ?
Fleep
--------------

Use Fleep to open the star crack that appears after Dimentio warps away
(refuse to help him, obviously), then hit the blue block to give chase.
Heíll lead you to another screen from earlier in the game; move to the right,
then use Fleep on the crack just above the red door you find. 

Dimentio's not too difficult to beat. In Merleeís Mansion,the crack is just
above the Rubee safe. use Slim to get to it. Underwater, move to the left
and youíll find the crack without too many problems. On the outer space
planet, you have to head to the right and through the secret passage beyond
the green door. In the Crognan land, move to the right and find the crack
underground in 3D mode. In the ruins of the feudal world, move to the right
with Carrie or Dasheel, if you got him in the Pit of 100 Trials, and listen
for the sound of the crack, as it can be easy to miss in the white background.
In the darkened corridor, the crack will be right near the door at the top of
the room. Be sure to grab the shrooms from the ? blocks here if youíre running
low on health. 

When you do finally get to fight Dimentio with Luigi, you should find him to
be much easier than Mimi was. He doesnít seem to have any appreciably new
attacks here; heíll warp in and out of view and attempt to hit you with
spells. Simply jump on him when he appears by himself, avoid him when he
phases in with multiples of himself and get ready to dodge, and use a quick
superjump if he ever phases in directly above you.

!Thanks to the Gamespot guide!

23 Count Bleck(5/10):The Bad Guy(Maybe)
--------------
HP 150
Att 15
Cudge
--------------

What the hell, he is invincible. Damn Hearts. Use Luigis super jump. When Bleck
is underneath you, jump. This will take a while but it is the best option.
His magical attacks are hard to dodge. Play this cautiously.Don't use
healing items because once the true final battle starts, you will have
full health. Don't get sucked into his vortex move, it hurts a lot. When
he makes you slow, I found the battle easier.

Mario: His speed will help, but damage is too weak.

Peach: Her Parasol will help, but damage is too weak.

Bowser: The damage is great, but he is too slow. You can use Carrie
to counteract this, but I like Luigi better.

Luigi: Alright, lets make Count Jackass bow down to us. Use Luigis super jump.
When Bleck is underneath you, jump. This will take a while but it is the
best option.

24 Dimentio(7/10) Final Boss
--------------
HP 200
Att ?
Anything offensive
--------------

200 hit points! Holy cow! Use Bowser+Thudley for double damage. It is not hard.
Dodge attacks and attack. Try and maneuver yourself quick. This will take
a while, but hang in there. Use up all your healing items. Soon, he will
die. Use a combo of all the characters, Mario/Luigi/Peach for moving around
and Bowser for attacking. Hang in there. The homing attacks won't hurt you
much. Just grind it out. Soon enough you will be watching the emotional
ending.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Optional Bosses:

There are 3 optional bosses in this game.

1. Francis
