DR. TAN

So... here you are. You've certainly had a successful run. You've proven yourself with every crew in town. ...Are you wondering how I know this? I'm afraid I've been... observing your moves.
Of course you've already met my crew... or did you not notice them? I call them: D-CYPHER! They are unbeatable, impossible to intimidate, incapable of fatigue! In short - the perfect dance crew. D-CYPHER will dominate all battles, taking crews out one by one, until none remain!
And then, if they wish to dance, it will be under my discretion. My rule.
But given your recent successes, I'm afraid that we just can't risk having you around, no, no, no... Wouldn't you know it? Another boss to battle? So! Shall we get to it then? Robots, get busy!

  • 0-2 stars:
    • Well... this was something of a disappointment.
    • Oh dear... some nemesis you are.
    • You could have done with a bit more engineering.
  • 3-4 stars:
    • Yes, yes, quite the good look. Dope.
    • Yes... I see minion potential here!
    • Joining up with Dr. Cool-Guy doesn't seem so bad, now does it?
  • 5 stars:
    • Got that funky flavor, no doubt, no doubt!
    • Note how that one got rocked out. Nasty.
    • I must make some notes. I'm cribbing your style.

    You... You've destroyed my robots! And my work...!
    You win, this time. But mark my words, I shall return! There will be no jerking outside my jurisdiction! No krumping that has not been condoned by me!
    There is no dancer in the world who would refuse the rule of Tan!

    • What, what, what, on earth were you doing?
  • 3-4 stars:
    • Huh. Maybe I'll keep you around... as a curiosity.
    • I'm confused... I thought you wanted to impress us.

    • Somehow I knew you'd find yourself comfortable at the bottom.
    • To be honest, I stopped paying attention 'eons' ago.
    • You trying to tell us something? You're hungry? Sad? Lost? What?
  • 3-4 stars:
    • Are you expecting a hug or something? We're not that kind of crew.
    • Hmm, perhaps there is hope for you yet.
    • I dare say, I'm not so embarrassed to be seen in public with you now.
