The Highwayman

"Arr! Money's here, boys! Man the cannons!"


"Don't worry... I shall relieve you of your riches, before I relieve you of your life..."

  • All Webbed Up: Can shoot a net-thing at you, this slows you down for a few seconds. He also has a yellow variant that steals your money too!
  • Bandit Mook: Can steal you money via webs.
  • Gemstone Assault: Throws the Hard Light equivalent of gold and jewels at you.
  • Giant Spider
  • Greed: Opens warpholes outside Metaspace to drag rich people in, kill them, and take their money. It also runs the corrupted city for the Defiance. In-game, it steals your money- as if being made of money wasn't enough.
  • Improbable Weapon User: See Gemstone Assault.
  • Kaizo Trap: Subverted. When defeated, it explodes into a near-impossible to avoid shower of bullets. However, you become invincible as soon as you beat a boss- too bad for him.
  • Meaningful Name: Aurum is the latin name for Gold.
  • Sequential Boss: First half has it swinging from the ceiling, second form has it on the ground in a Spider Tank form.
  • Shout-Out: Its first phase has two attack patterns that resembles the attacks of Morph Moth's coccoon form.
  • Spider Tank: The second half of the fight.
  • Wave Motion Gun: Gilded Beam, used in both phases of the fight.

Stage 3: Seduction


"You've come just in time. My tentacles need something to play with..."

  • Anything That Moves: "You're no fun! I'm off to do more pleasurable things". Said "pleasurable things" probably involve using tentacles on his minions.
  • Beat Still, My Heart: It's a beating, dismembered heart-like being.
  • Bloody Murder: Sends out heart-shaped blood cells that try to "molest" the player.
  • Combat Tentacles: May double as tentacles for naughty purposes, given that it represents the sin of Lust.
  • Eye Beams: Which look like a male's reproductive organ...
  • "Get Back Here!" Boss: Appears as the miniboss, then runs away after you beat its four large tentacles. In the Boss battle against it, it will try to run away after its health gets low.
  • Getting Crap Past the Radar: Keeps stating about how it wants to have "fun" and "pleasure".
  • Giant Eye of Doom
  • Lust: Keeps stating about how it wants to have "fun" and "pleasure" with you. Then it attacks you with Combat Tentacles...
  • Meaningful Name
  • Mini-Boss: He doubles as both the boss and miniboss of the stage.
  • Mook Maker: Spawns out the enemies that you fight during the stage.
  • Shout-Out: Could be one to the heart boss of Contra.
  • Stationary Boss
  • The Virus: Has infected a section of Metaspace with an organic virus.

Stage 4: Hunger

Shoop Da Whoop




Void Warp

  • Doomsday Device: Considering that it ate an entire dimension...
  • Gravity Master
  • Gravity Sucks: Attempts to suck the player in!
  • Power of the Void
  • Puzzle Boss: You defeat it by destroying the machines that "feed" it with bullets.
  • Unrealistic Black Hole
  • Turns Red: Once two adjacent generators are destroyed, it starts chasing after you!
  • Villainous Glutton: It ate up most of the dimension!
    • Its ability also fits in with the "wasting" part of Gluttony- it eats the shots that the generators create, but spits them back out as hard-to-destroy black bullets!
  • Yin-Yang Bomb: It normally sucks you in and fires out black bullets, but every now and then it turns into a white hole, pushes you away and fires out white bullets.

Stage 5: Fury




Stage 6: Spite

Fallen Angle

  • Always Accurate Attack: If you get caught in his angle, he will fire out his dark bullets, which will home in on you and kill you if you do not counter them in time. Thankfully, the dark bullets can be countered.
  • Defeat Means Friendship: In the final stage, he gives Arc Angle his shadow powers in order for AA to defeat Xero-Fin
  • Face–Heel Turn: Joins the Defiance just because he was jealous of your war efforts! and also because he found out Xero-Fin's true intentions.
  • Good Bad Bugs: Due to a mistake in the programmer's coding, he only has 12 hp instead of 1250. Cue Curb-Stomp Battle.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: He represents the sin of Envy in this game, and wishes to delete Arc Angle because Arc was treated so well by Xero-Fin.
  • Light The Way: Throws his powers away for darkness.
  • Redemption Equals Death: After his defeat, he gets impaled by Xero-Fin's Vigil Lance. Given that Vigil Lances are based off the Holy Lance of Longinus, he doesn't survive for long. But he manages to tell you Xero-Fin's true intentions before dying.
  • Rush Boss: He has the lowest amount of health of all the bosses, but his attacks can drain away your lives pretty quickly. Plus, he teleports away if there are about 6 or so Holy Bullets on screen, making your holy bullets miss!
  • Teleport Spam: If you counter too many of his bullets at one go, he teleports away, making all of them miss. Grr.
  • The Rival
  • Wave Motion Gun: Of pure Darkness!
