** PuzzleBoss. You have to figure out its weakspot first, but actually defeating him from there on is no challenge.
* '''Double Subverted''': But then the demonic cat isn't much of a challenge after all.
* '''Parodied''': ''Alice Adventure'' is based off the RuleOfFunny. When you confront Evulz at the end, [[BondVillainStupidity all he does is talk]], and all Alice has to do is ''lightly tap'' him, and he starts crying out for his "mommy".

** Emperor Evulz steps from his throne as the flashes of lightning cast light on his dark armor. As the dramatic music starts to play, he unsheathes his flaming sword of pure destruction and apporaches Alice... and then he trips over a small rock, which sends him bungling off a nearby crevasse, comically hitting both sides repeatedly before hitting the bottom.


* '''Conversed''': "Wow, Evulz. You're totally weak. I thought you'd be much stronger than that."

* '''Enforced''': The deadline for the game's development was uncomftorably close, so the devleopers didn't have the time to put together an epic final boss. They just had to make do.

** [[TheUnfought There's no battle at all]]. You confront him, and Evulz just tells Alice to [[LookBehindYou look at that demonic cat]] and [[CowardlyBoss runs for the hills]]. You win!

** Evulz has traits of ThatOneBoss. He has a lot of health, and his attacks are tough to dodge. The fight really should be challenging, and it would be... If it weren't for the fact that you're constantly being healed during the fight. And at a rate ''just under'' the amount of damage he does.

Added DiffLines:

** The fight with Evulz is hated for being too [[ThatOneBoss difficult]] and [[GoddamnedBoss frustrating]].

* '''Straight''': At the end of ''Alice Adventure'', it's time for an epic showdown with [[FinalBoss Emperor Evulz]]. However, Evulz doesn't really put up that much of a fight, and he goes down pretty easily. He's also inferior to the previous level's [[ThatOneBoss Shingami boss]].
