So Pinnochio is an "it", not a "he"? :p

I just killed every other enemy, made Gort, Luke, and Gong attack him (I believe she's a "her", isn't she?) up front, and had Anri, Tao, Arthur, Mae and Ken attack from the outside. A few critical hits, and it's done! I believe everyone was level ten (unpromoted) at that time.


I figured it would work, but I don't think your levels have to be that high.

Technically, yes, he would have to be since an item, for lack of a better word, can't technically possess a gender.

I still remember when I used to play this game on genesis over a decade ago. I still remember one time playing through SF1 probably my first or second time through I had the most trouble with Kane. Marionette was the second toughest I remember, but now he's a piece of cake.

back when I was like 10 I was playing with some other kids, they liked watchin me play it. It was on the Kane battle about to give up when the one kid presses his finger on the reset button, but I say wait! And he held it in until I finished, and won! and saved the battle haha. The things we remember.

edit: This was somewhere in the early to mid 90s

Laser Eye pwned me too on my first playthrough, took awhile to figure out how to position my characters away from the beam, I was a kid playing it through.

That circus battle was a hard one too, freeze 3 is a real killer at that level.

I perfectly understand what you mean. Often times things like that are represented as male or female, which is likely what would cause that scenario to play out in that manner. I was just being literal.

He He, i may feel wierd but i personally found the bustoke battle to be a real pain. Skeletons only take little damage early on, and then obv the snipers and mages.

After that prob Colossus. Have given Chimera's a few expletives in the past. LOL

Wow, missed this one when it popped up 2 years ago. o_0

Anyway, I remember the Colossus absolutely cleaning my clock the first time I played through the game. Took several tries to even kill ONE head, much less all 3 of them.

I reckon so.

For me it was the Marionette followed by Chaos (the robot not the Domingo wanabies that every one calls chaos...) Chaos had you surrounded early, and he got into the fight with his minions which is what made him a pain. Having Chaos shooting lasers, Deamon Masters Casting Freeze 3 and Ice wurms using ice breath he was annoying.

Domingo wanabies? You mean mean Colossus?
Anyways, IIRC, if you don't go too far up, Chaos will just stand there until you destroy a few of his buddies.

On my first playthrough, I think the 3 toughest battles in the entire game for me were all in Chapter 2 (on the way to Marinara those zombies messed me up, the Marionette has been well documented, and perhaps the hardest battle of the chapter was Shade Abbey). After chapter 2, it was pretty smooth sailing.

Wait, thats an interesting point.

Domingo and the Colossus do actually resemble each other quite well.

Are Domingo some sort of hidden ancient race that built the Colossus? That is for fans to decide. :excited:

Yeah, I seem to recall the way to Marinara as the first truly challenging battle of the game.

I hated the rune knights early in the game. Then it was Pegusus Knights.

I apologize for the necro post, but didn't this topic used to have a poll attached to it? Because I brought it up in a video I'm currently editing, and wanted to post a screenshot of it to show the results, but it's not appearing for me to do so.
