Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom‘s lion boss is yet another challenging foe that you might have trouble with.
To fight him and win you need to bring your ‘A’ game, as well as your frog form. The frog form is in fact necessary to defeat him.
When the fight starts, quickly use your tongue in frog form to rotate the arena. Being turned upside down will disorient the lion, allowing you to get some hits in.
Eventually, the lion will retreat to the ceiling. Deal with the enemies that he summons on the ground, and then try to reflect the green orb that he throws at you with your shield. If it hits him, he’ll fall to the floor, and if you quickly rotate the room he’ll get turned upside down and become disoriented again. Quickly get some hits in while you can.
In the third stage of the fight, the lion will begin to send out two fan-like projectiles before throwing a green orb. Simply avoid or deflect them before deflecting the green orb back at him. This time, however, he’ll hit the green orb back at you. You’ll need to keep up the rally with the green orb until it hits him, knocking him to the ground. Again, flip the room with your tongue to disorient him and give him a good whacking.
Follow these steps and Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom‘s lion boss will be defeated. You’ll then be able to tun into a lion at will, which is pretty cool.
