Mic's Advice Edit

"Yeah, it's Mic. I got eyes on Brand, but getting through these nutso cars ain't easy.

This could turn into a fifty car pileup any minute. Hate to ask, but I could use some help."


Boss FightEdit

The fight begins with multiple simple but fast attacks that can whittle down the player's HP very quickly.

Attack 1/2: Brandish leaps into the air, before coming down in 1 of 2 ways: he may do a fast diagonal kick aimed towards the player, which can be dodged by dashing underneath or away from the targeted point, or, he may do a slower vertical spinning attack with his swords, targeting a landing spot like 1, but will not travel as far either. This makes it quite difficult to dodge because of both the need to predict where he will land and because of a larger width of the attack.

Attack 3: A simple horizontal spin slash across the stage that reflects Beck's projectiles. While being quite fast, it is quite simple to avoid by boosting over it. Also, he usually does not go all the way across the stage, leaving a safe zone at either edge. This is where Seismic form comes in. Using this, you can do extra damage to him by stomping on him as he goes past.

Attack 4: After you get him down to half health, he will then use this attack. A blue section will appear, and shortly afterward he will slash through that area. then, he will do this again, but faster and at a different angle. This can become very difficult as the speed becomes almost too great to react properly to.

His sword can be broken by Seismic's form, but this does not deter his moveset by much. His spin slash changes to a sliding kick, low enough for Beck's projectiles to pass above him. He will form his swords back after a certain amount of time passes by or his health passes the threshold to do so.
