Beat Sai’x, Hooded Enemy
Notice: That on this combat we’re given the selection to play as both Sora or Roxas. The decide is as much as you, however you may say Roxas is a bit tougher as you don’t have practically the identical quantity of expertise and talents as Sora. He does have twin wielding keyblades in order that’s neat!
Most likely probably the most tough boss combat on this space, and that’s due to Sai’x’s assaults. His assaults are so random and have such a variety that it’s very exhausting to method him. One other factor that makes this combat extremely exhausting is that it’s so exhausting to stun Sai’x and he’ll maintain attacking even if you happen to’re attacking him. The Hooded Enemy strikes similar to Darkish Riku and there’s not a lot to say, however because the combat progresses a scene takes place and we have now to solely combat Sai’x. That is the rationale we’re solely specializing in the blue-haired demon:
Ring of Hearth: He begins swinging his axe horizontally and creating a hoop of fireplace per swing. This one is actually annoying as a result of you’ll be able to’t stun him whereas doing this assault. You’ll be able to both block every slash as they arrive, or you’ll be able to double leap and begin gliding till he’s performed. He does round 6-7 swings and if you happen to’re blocking them, attempt to counter him to deal some injury.
Downward Strike: He jumps and floats within the air slightly bit, then throws his axe downwards and has it spin in place for a short time. The axe doesn’t transfer so simply don’t be beneath him when he jumps and this assault will miss.
V Slash: Much like Darkish Riku’s assault, Sai’x assaults a pair instances together with his axe after which jumps backwards and throws his axe on the flooring three shockwaves that type a V with the third one taking place the center. Blocking these assaults is the very best since you’ll need to counter him as quickly as he’s performed with the assault. Notice that whenever you see him leap backwards to do the ultimate transfer, you’ll be able to roll in direction of him to keep away from the assault and to be ready to assault.
T Slash: On this one he slams the ground and creates three shockwaves that create a T, then he teleports and throws his axe at you. Notice that he can mix this assault and the V Slash assault, which is fairly related. Nonetheless be ready to dam this assault as you gained’t have time to leap and glide.
After the scene and the whole lot modifications, he’ll even have the next assaults:
Shockwave: He jumps and slams the bottom creating a big shockwave. Very simple to leap over so achieve this whenever you see him leaping.
Star Slash: He does a few V and T Slashes and finishes with a bigger “Star Slash”, the place he thrusts his axe into the bottom and creates a number of shockwaves that journey in all instructions round him.
He doesn’t achieve that many assaults after the scene, however he beneficial properties unbelievable energy and velocity. Critically, his Ring of Hearth assault as an alternative of slashing round together with his axe, he merely glides round and spins his axe creating the shockwaves. Don’t let this idiot you although, he’s nonetheless beatable, particularly due to who’s serving to you however you’ll simply should be a bit extra cautious on the way you’re combating.
Pay attention to the Berserk gauge within the prime left. It begins blue, then turns to yellow and at last it depletes. So long as this gauge is slightly bit full Sai’x could have the blue aura round him and can negate any likelihood so that you can stun him. You’ll be able to nonetheless injury him however you’ll be open to his assaults if you happen to get too shut. When you don’t need to get that damage, await his gauge to deplete and he’ll be shocked for chunk of time. Use this time to do as a lot injury as you probably can as a result of when the yellow gauge is full, he’ll begin attacking you however will nonetheless be stunnable, which is nice for us.
