* SelfImposedChallenge: Some players occasionally go out of their kingdom without their posse. Corobo can hurt enemies with the command action, and doing so makes taking down enemies and bosses ''far'' more difficult than if they're fought normally. For example, Duvroc can be taken down with only Corobo, but doing so turns him into a MarathonBoss thanks to his damage output being incredibly low and needing to be mindful of his attacks and minions thanks to his low health.

to:

** The king wears a brilliant red cape, an expensive-looking medallion, royal boots, a "magic" sceptre, scepter, and his golden crown.


Added DiffLines:

* SevenDeadlySins: It doesn't seem like it at first, but all of the boss kings represent each sin in one way or another. To elaborate:
** As the Onii King demonstrates in his boss intro, he clearly isn't the charitable type, claiming that "what's mine is mine and what's yours is mine" and states that you're taking "his" territory when the kingdom of Alpoko was clearly claimed by you before he issued his challenge. Therefore, it makes perfect sense for him to be the representation of {{Greed}}.
** What King Duvroc wants is nothing more than a good drink, a great party and an undying hope that the world will stop fighting or doing anything just to get wasted and relax their days away; his position as the representative as the sin of [[LazyBum Sloth]] fits like a glove.
** King Shishikebaboo's sin is a no-brainer. He [[BigEater gorges himself on numerous sweets and food]] and thinks almost of nothing else (not even Spumoni, whom he's got trapped in a vase). Being a creature of over-indulgence, it's only natural for his sin to be [[VillainousGlutton Gluttony]].
** Contrary to what many might think, King Omelet, eternal worrywart that he is, represents [[UnstoppableRage Wrath]]. Saint Thomas Aquinas said that wrath can be characterized by either misplaced anger, hasty anger or complete passivity. Omelet's approach to battle and everything around him therefore makes his position as the representative of the sin of Wrath actually makes a lot of sense.
** A hotshot television reporter who enjoys being the center of attention as the premier information network of the world, confident that his geography test will trip you up and humiliate you all on national television... Yep, King TV Dinnah has the representation of {{Pride}} down pat.
** King Long Sauvage represents the sin of {{Lust}}...which might raise some eyebrows at first, especially since there's almost no hints as to why he's represents this particular sin. ...Until one realizes a few things; [[Literature/TheDivineComedy The Divine Comedy]] makes reference to those who are lustful being on top of the mountain in Purgatory, the fact that Sauvage takes great pride in being incredibly tall and having a monstrously long beard (and there's his name, which could be something...[[DoubleEntendre much more racy]] if one replaces the "v" in his name with an "s"...), Sobamanjaro's [[DeathCourse heavily defended state]] indicates a serious lust for power...and then there's the fact that he's the king who's holding [[MsFanservice Princess Ferne]] captive, hinting at a [[DirtyOldMan potentially perverse side]], so all the subtle hints ultimately add up and give Long Sauvage's position as the representative of Lust much more weight. ''New Little King's Story'' makes the connection ''embarrassingly'' obvious.
** King Jumbo Champloon might seem to be a hard one to point out...until you remember that his island has only recently been built and he's new on the scene in the grand scheme of kingdom ruling. Then he sees you rising to the top as a better constructed and far more powerful kingdom than his own, and issues a challenge just to claim his kingdom superior to yours. [[GreenEyedMonster Envy]] is a powerful emotion indeed, and describes Jumbo Champloon, TalkativeLoon that he is, quite well.
** [[spoiler: The Rat King [[SubvertedTrope appears to break the chain]] as it doesn't appear to embody any other sin that hasn't already been covered by the other bosses...[[DoubleSubversion except]] as the '''eighth''' boss, it actually embodies the forgotten sin of ''[[DespairEventHorizon Despair]]''. This actually makes perfect sense; being the representation of Death of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, its attempts to destroy your kingdom by tearing apart the toy stage containing your world and its successful attempt in swallowing the princess you chose to accompany you on the trip to the real world - in addition to any soldiers who die during the final battle - helps represent the feelings of loss and despair very well...both the despair Corobo must be feeling and the despair the player themselves [[PlayerPunch is likely going through.]]]]
