It is tail strike (what use to be head bash), that you use to finish them. When there is something that will not die, squash it.
Ross Gold Sparx Gems: 2159
#52 Posted: 22:01:41 05/01/2008
Ah! Tail Strike! Ofcourse!

EDIT: Now done that. I got stuck with them both attacking at once so I dished out my Earth Furry on them. I didn't even have to Tail Strike them! Anyway, I beat Skabb, who was not hard at all. Piece o' cake. And now I've just beaten Scurvywings at Pirate Fleet and I've gotta finish my homework.

Read the FAQ. You'll notice there are certain points when he's vulnerable. They include:

1. After successfully dodging all three eye beams.
2. If the tornado attack is successfully dodged.
3. When he's using his "fury" (it looks like bombs are dropped around him).

I know but Even when he's vulnerable he somehow teleports. and I'm using dragon time, too.

This may be random, but I might as well state something here. In spite of HIR's excellent efforts at devising boss strategies here, I can't believe there are still some people having issues.

So, let me say it here and now; I have a video boss guide now underway. Yep, it must have been well over a month since I last approached the game (blame it on Super Mario Galaxy!!) and I thought I'd struggle in the earlier stages once again under a clean slate, but I didn't do too bad; got from the beginning to clearing the ice dream in 90 minutes and did a decent attempt at the Assassin (read: "decent", had to take a set of hits and miss some shots accidentally), recorded for the first part (which will be batched with the Grove bosses).

I'll keep up on the progress as time permits. I'm determined to make sure no one struggles anymore smilie

It doesn't honestly matter. You can whittle away about half/3-quarters of its health while it's warming up.

Except fire is next-to-useless and has limited range. The Skeleton Knights can shoot health-depleting energy balls at you if you fail to hit them. Use Electric Orbs and Electric Spins. Also, when the giant Buffalo Riders appear and are about to charge. Leave the arena. They'll charge off the platform and often die as a result.

Why? Because people keep asking "HOW DO I BEAT TEH [insert boss name here]?! I KEEP DYING, LOL!" Now, we can have strategies in one convenient topic as opposed to scattered around multiple topics!

Stage 1: Dragon Temple
# of Bosses: 1


Stage boss: The Assassin
Difficulty: Easy
Health meter(s): 1
Vulnerability point?: Yes

A very easy boss battle. You can only hit The Assassin when he's down below the platform. When he's up above, use Dragon Time and jump to the side to dodge the Survywing's energy balls. You'll need to jump up to use your fireballs, otherwise they'll just hit the tiny wall surrounding the platform.

Stage 2: Ancient Grove
# of Bosses: 2


Mini-boss: Scurvywings I
Difficulty: Easy
Health meter(s): 1
Vulnerability point: Yes

Use the exact same strategy as with The Assassin... seriously!

Stage boss: Arborick
Difficulty: Hard/easy
Health meter(s): 2
Vulnerability point?: Depends

Round one: Arborick has five different sections that you need to try and hit with your fireballs; the body, two arms, and two legs. The catch is, you have to hit them in a specific order, or the attack will do nothing. Additionally, the arm on the right side of the screen will be too far away to hit with fireballs unless Arborick is attacking. Arborick has two basic attacks; which are mere copies of attacks used by Stone Sentinel in ANB. He will launch the arm on the right side of the screen at you. To dodge, simply activate Dragon Time when his arm appears in front of him, and jump to the side. The most effective way to hit his right arm involves being on the left side of the platform when he's using this attack, then jumping to the right side and shooting a fireball at the arm. His second attack is where he tries to kick you with his foot. When you see him bringing his foot back, activate Dragon Time and jump to the side. Now for the annoying part; once you manage to hit Arborick, you have to hurry to hit his other sections. If you take too long, Arborick will literally spin the fire off of him. Use Dragon Time to dodge the giant fireballs as they rain down on the platform. The thing is, Arborick can only heal two of his sections; so if you already have hit three or four sections, some of him will still be on fire. When you successfully hit Arborick in all five sections in the correct order, he'll spin the flames off again. Dodge with Dragon Time and a short cutscene will ensue in which you're chased to the other side of the lake.
CAUTION: Jump to far to the left or right in this round and you will fall into the purple water, which will kill you instantly!

Round two (note: If you die during round two, you must start from round one): In the beginning of this round, you'll only be able to see Arborick's head. Pelt him with fireballs, while dodging the fireballs he spins at you with Dragon Time. Arborick will also use his punch attack. Be very careful, because it is very hard to tell when he's using his punch attack because his arms aren't visible. After Arborick uses his spinning flame attack twice, he'll disappear. He'll suddenly climb out of the water and stand on the same platform as you (your controller will start rumbling and Spyro will say "NOT GOOD!" when this is happening). Now your goal is to just spam Arborick with fireballs like a madman. You can hit him in either the legs or the body to inflict damage. Arborick has two attacks in this form; he will either try and squish you with one foot, or kick you with the other. If he's using his stomp attack, he'll lift his foot high in the air. Activate Dragon Time and move to the other side to dodge. If he's using his kick attack, he'll swing his leg back like before; so dodge with Dragon Time again. Once you drain Arborick of his health meter, a cutscene will ensue in which you go to the next world.

Stage three: Fellmuth Arena
# of Bosses: 4


Mini-boss: Blunder Tail twins
Difficulty: Medium
Health meter(s): 2 (one for each)
Vulnerability point?: Yes

CAUTION: You must finish off the Blunder Tails with a Tail Strike! Take to long, and they recover half of their health!
Alright, a few notes about the arena itself. If you get too close to the edge of the arena, cannon balls will fly out. The small craters in the ground along the outer edge mark where they land. The arena is also surrounded by swampy green water, which will kill you instantly. Alright, the Blunder Tails must be stunned with a Knock-Up Attack. Positioning is key in this battle. Notice that one Blunder Tail starts slightly in front of the other. Go into Dragon Time to do the Knock-Up, making sure that one of the Blunder Tails is standing in front of the other, then unfreeze time and ground-melee them. If you have a fury, try to knock up both Blunder Tails, then use it. You should be able to get in a good solid four hits on one before it rights itself. DO NOT MELEE IT IN THE AIR! Also, while many people suggest going onto one of the arena's ramps: DO NOT DO IT! If you're hit by one of the Blunder Tails on the ramp, you WILL fall into the water. The Blunder Tails have three main attacks. They will slash you with their claws, slam you with their tails, and if you're far away from them, shoot cannon balls at you. Try to focus on picking off one at a time. As stated above, you must use a Tail Strike once you've depleted their health meter or they'll recover half of it.

Standard Boss: Ravage Rider
Difficulty: Easy
Health meter(s): 2
Vulnerability point?: Yes

The Ravage Rider fights EXACTLY the same as Steam from ANB. When the fight starts, and the Ravage Rider is warming up, chase after it and melee it and use some of your breath on it. Once it's up to full speed, go to the center of the arena and wait. The Ravage Rider will then try to charge at you. It will also do one of two things; A: sprout a flamethrower on one side and try to flame you with it, or B: sprout a cannon and shoot cannon balls at you. Either way, activate Dragon Time and run to the side, preferably the side that the cannon/flamethrower isn't on and unfreeze. The Ravage Rider will start circling again and will charge your once or twice more. Then, it will collide with the wall. Start unloading GROUND melee hits on it like a crazy person. If you have a fury, by all means use it! For the second health bar, the Ravage Rider will move faster, and its cannon will fire shots at you while it's circling around the arena. Next boss, please!

Standard Boss: The Executioner
Difficulty: Easy
Health meter(s): 3
Vulnerability point: Yes (only during his first health meter)

Very easy boss, fights exactly like the Ice and Electric Kings from ANB. For its first health meter, simply stay on the left side of the Executioner. Wait for him to raise his sword, then activate Dragon Time and glide away from him. He'll slam his sword in the ground and it will get stuck, which is your cue to melee him. The Executioner also stomps the ground, and if you're too close, you'll go flying into the air! For the second health meter, his shield will break, allowing you to freely attack him. This time, he'll try and slash you or spear you with his sword. The best strategy for him is to air melee him. After the third hit, use your Comet Dash while in the air to inflict more damage and get away from his counter attack. In his third health bar, he will also try to punch you. If he succeeds, you'll be momentarily flattened, allowing him to use a second attack on you. Use the air melee/comet dash combo on him and you've got yourself an easy win. If you have a fury, use it on his first form, mainly because his shield counters your melee attacks.

I'll put the rest in a/some separate post(s)...


Wierd, I thought that the Exicutioner had only one bar of Hp.

No, that's just Gaul really... and Skabb for what seems like a good solid third of the entire game. The rest are just bosses. With the exception of the Assassin and any Scurvywings, none of the bosses work for Gaul (the Fellmuth Arena bosses work for Skabb and the Elemental Dragon was created by the Chronicler to test Spyro).

What I usually do for Ravage Rider is that I attack the pirate dog who keeps popping out the window. Then whenever it crashes into a wall, I use Dragon Time so I can hit it as much as I can. What I DON'T do is attack it until it reaches it's second health bar after the first time it crashes since it goes alot faster. Depending on how low it's first health bar is, I wait a second time for it to crash into a wall and then I use Dragon Time to quickly take as much of his health (first and second) as I can. If Dragon Time runs out, I keep on attack it rapidly before it starts going fast through it's second health bar.
