YMMV: Socrates Jones Pro Philosopher
  • Anticlimax Boss: The Final Boss makes many amateur rhetorical mistakes and repeatedly falls into easily-debunked logical fallacies. Half the argument doesn't even require using anything from the idea slate!
  • Awesome Music: All of the debate tracks.
  • That One Boss:
    • Immanuel Kant. His arguments are quite complicated; even the characters complain about how incomprehensible he is. To beat him you need to do something that seems foolish and isn't required anywhere else: use his own philosophy (the first idea he gives you) against him. Even then, figuring out exactly where to do it can be tricky.
    • Which boss counts as That One Boss for the player may, in fact, reflect their own philosophical beliefs. Philosophers they strongly agree with may be harder to take down; for instance, a deeply religious individual may struggle even against Euthyphro. (It's just as likely that being well-versed in their philosophy may allow one to know all the counterpoints in advance, however.)
