Added DiffLines:

* LuckBasedMission: The entire game. Specifically, demons can come out of nowhere, sometimes even basically two in a row, and ruin the pace. That, plus the shop never sells consumables, meaning that the only way to bring yourself to a full stock of Orbs is to get lucky with cards, and the only way to increase your TP is to waste time taunting or using Yes Man Kablaam. End up with low health after a breakpoint? Either let yourself get killed or get lucky with item drops. Hmmmmm.
** The same could be said about the [[BossInMookClothing Trident Demon]]. All you have to do is use the default sweep kick after doing your Square combo. Do note that he has to be carrying his trident in order for this to work. So it is actually better to not "pummel" him when he's dizzy, because if he drops the trident his attack pattern changes entirely (plus, it's even more aggressive than before).

** Belze has a lot of health, a lot of attack power, attacks that are hard to dodge, and, like Dr. Ion, is ImmuneToFlinching when the DynamicDifficulty is high enough. He also moves very, very slowly, and only has one long-range attack (and he can only use it in his second form) which basically means Gene is free to taunt him as much as he likes, filling up his SuperMeter with no difficulty.

Yes Man Kablaam is a single punch that quickly fills Gene's Tension meter at the cost of him slowly turning around with a shit-eating grin and two thumbs up to a cheering audience. Granny Smacker is a slow, weak slap to the face that instantly renders the foe dizzy. Normally these will only cause you to get your ass beat by the extremely tough foes but using moves like Chain Yanker or Ball Buster along with Dodge Canceling can quickly turn the tide of a fight to your favor.
