Who was your favorite superboss in this game? I choose Sentinel because he is unique in his resistence to Psynergy.

I want to say Dullahan. I like the feeling of "This fight is your completion bonus, Enjoy it!" And I did.

Almost all were good in concept, but needing in better execution.

Valukar is his own worst enemy.  He sets the party up to take him down.  A better idea might have been to send djinn into recovery instead of standby.

Sentinel's schtick is irrelevant by the time you fight the guy.  At this point, nobody uses attack psynergy anymore.  If the guy was also immune to djinn and summons, it'd be different, but at this point you're either using djinn and summons, or you're using an unleash strategy.

Dully's actually a puzzle boss, but there's nothing in the whole game to really clue you into that.  He follows a strict pattern, unlike every other boss in the game, and yet they player is expected to find it out on their own, even though the things the player needs to stop will wipe them out, and his pattern starts in different places in the sequence.  If you're going to have a boss like this, you need build up.  You need a series of things to read to prepare.  It'll still be hard as balls, but you'll at least go in with a fighting chance.  Without it, players tend to just summon rush out of desperation.

Star Magician I think is the only one that was really any good.  The first two were a joke, Dully was cheap, but Star Magician actually had a legitimately tough, drawn out fight.  It's a shame he seemed so much weaker in Dark Dawn, where IMO the only decent superboss was the Ancient Devil.

Valukar was a joke. I still had plenty of PP by the time I got to Sentinel.

Dullahan was a boss.

I also like Sentinal, he's cool too.
