I was thinking of Paper Mario the other day. Why? No idea. But I thought I’d talk about some of my favorite boss battles from the game.
For the sake of everything, I’m not including Bowser because… well, he’s in everything.
3. Lava Piranha
I’ll be honest, there’s nothing too special about this boss fight other than Kolorado busting in every now and then. The Lava Piranha is found on Mt. Lavalava and is kind of a creepy looking dude, but completely awesome at the same time. Plus, fire.
2. Crystal King
This weird guy is found at the Crystal Palace – not to be mistaken for the breakfast buffet in Disney with Winnie the Pooh and friends. He’s the last major boss you fight before heading to battle Bowser. His move set is cool with illusions and the like. I’ve always liked the music and sound effects for him too. I mean, the music all around is good for the whole game, but this one always stood out to me.
1. Koopa Bros.
The very first major boss fight of the game in Koopa Bros. Fortress. These guys are hilarious. They really add a lightheartedness to the game (as if it wasn’t already). Bonus points, they remind me of the Ninja Turtles.
