It was a special request, I'll have you know.

And the title is in reference to Metroid: Other M. Heathen.

Graw! Freaking Octopus boss from Muramasa is so annoying!

Anyone have any strategies to beat it? I've completed all the white challenge areas, am level 99, forged all blades, and seen all 3 endings for both characters, so any combination of equipment will work. I just can't seem to kill all of his legs before time runs out.

I'd post this in the Muramasa forum, but since there hasn't been activity there since February, I was worried I wouldn't get a response before this weekend (which is when I intend to complete this game fully).

I still haven't killed it either, so I'm in the same boat. (ha ha, boat.)

Well, that makes me feel a little better at least. So far the best method I've found is to use the long blades to do an air combo on it near the base, then 3 back and forth running slashes to deal a little extra damage to it on your way back up out of the water. I've killed around 6 legs this way, but I just can't get past that time limit.

Now it's making sense as to why no FAQs have any info on this guy. I have to wonder what item you get from it, though. It's either got to be something truly overpowered or utterly useless.

Read the first SP comic. I don't think I'll read anymore. Not that they're bad, it's just that the movie was REALLY faithful, like most of the dialogue is the same. So I don't think I'll continue the series.

I would keep reading, because a bunch of things did get changed.

It's my birthday!


(not that anyone cares)




And the movie not only isn't that faithful (lots of scenes not related to the first book are gone) and the books get better as it goes on.

And arguably, one of the best parts of the book was how the characters interacted. The 4th book was almost entirely that, and the 5th and 6th books are almost completely different. And didn't he fight the chick before the vegan in the movie? That's another differnece

Did you like the movie though? Because if you did and it's really faithful to the comics, I would think that would be a good incentive to continue reading. Unless I'm mistaken the movie doesn't cover all 6 books, right?

it does. They're so similar that I won't buy the comics for sure, and it's a lot harder to find scans of comics than manga.

Huh. I didn't know that. I though it only covered a couple of the comics.

It's probably easier to find scans of manga because comics are generally easier to get a hold of and cheaper.

No, it's not faithful at all other than key elements and the first book and third book.


Otherwise, pretty different. Dragon Zero has been lied to
