Colouring outside the lines.
Figuring out a boss’ weakness and then beating your foe in a fight can be incredibly satisfying, but by their very nature, these encounters in games sometimes have cracks beneath the surface- cracks the developers didn’t intend to be there. Using this we have, across several years and several games, beaten bosses in ways the developers hadn’t intended- in this feature, we’ll be taking a look at fifteen such cases.
GYOUBU ONIWA- SEKIRO: SHADOWS DIE TWICE
Gyoubu Oniwa is the first real boss in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, and while he can pose a bit of a challenge, you can take him out pretty much in a matter of seconds if you want to. Speedrunner Distortion2, while setting one of his speedrun records on the game, displayed a trick that makes Oniwa chase you across the arena, and then fall to his death off the edge of a cliff.
