Miniboss Monday: The Phantom Train

 Today's miniboss has already been covered rather thoroughly by the amazing Chad once before, but that won't stop me from doing a second article about the ridiculous boss fight that ensues. The enemy is a demonic choo-choo train who ca...

Miniboss Monday: King Hippo

What's big, fat, royal, and can't seem to find proper fitting boxing trunks? King Hippo, of course! King Hippo is easily the most recognizable fighter from the original Punch-Out!! on the NES besides Mike Tys-- I mean, Mr. Dream himself. Oh...

Miniboss Monday: Crocomire

Today's Miniboss Monday is one of my personal favorites and is an extremely memorable fight for many who completed Super Metroid back in the day. Crocomire is by no means a difficult or exciting opponent to fight, but what makes him so grea...
