YMMV / Power Stone

Go To

  • Most Annoying Sound: "OH NO!"
  • That One Boss: Valgas in the first game is brutal. As with Kraken, his first and foremost goal is getting the Power Stones. He doesn't use items often, but the thing is that he doesn't even need them- they're there to give you a chance. He hits like a truck, has massive health, and most infuriating of all, his blows pack so much punch that more often than not every power stone knocked out of you will fly over to him, and if you have two power stones, his grab knocks them BOTH out. And unlike Kraken, his projectile attacks have homing properties, and if you get hit by one of his supers, it's going to hurt.
    • Pharaoh Walker in the sequel is infuriating for one major reason- you have to hit it in the head which is, for the most part, impossible until you break two of its legs to knock it down... Except the people piloting it can still interrupt your attacks with pesky projectiles and they respawn, more than likely ensuring it gets back up with only a short bit of life lost. Even worse is its powerful beam attack, which is the strongest attack it has and nigh impossible to dodge unless you get under itnote . Thankfully, if you can grab its underside and kill the tail driver, you can use its own attack against it for massive damage.

    • Also from the sequel is the final boss, Dr.Erode. Before the fight even starts, you need to fight off strange tofu... doll... things, who wield various weapons from the game, and because you fight Erode right after, any damage taken from the dolls is going to have an impact on your performance. That said, given that they drop money and picking up their items adds it to your total pile available for fusing together, the tofu men wouldn't be all bad... if it wasn't for the fact that there's so many of them that they'll manage to pin you down if they get a good hit in. As for the Doctor himself, he's just plain weird, so it's hard to tell exactly what he's doing. He could spit out homing flies, he could grab you, he could grab some tea and vomit it all over you- Most of his attacks have the same start-up or have little difference, to add to the frustration. And like the Pharaoh Walker, you have to hit his head (at least your characters aim for it this time). The only saving graces are that cake will always spawn if you break certain items and that he doesn't take Power Fusion attacks very well.


How well does it match the trope?
