Boss Battle Gameplay Is Different

Boss Battle is Different

Boss battles differ substantially from regular battles. Instead of using the ring to match enemies, you'll need to use it to create a specific path towards the boss.

Check Out the Battle System Guide

Spin & Slide Rings To Create A Path

Spin & Slide Rings to Create a Path

The boss will be at the middle of the arena, requiring you to create a path for Mario towards it. Spin and slide the rings to get Mario close enough to attack the boss.

Bosses Have Weak Points

Bosses Have Weak Points

Every boss has a weak point that you can use to deal extra damage to it. These can even cause the boss to deal damage to itself.

Summon Bosses After Beating Them


In Japanese promotional material, we saw that Olivia is actually able to transform into the Earth Vellumental boss! She seems to do this in order to solve certain puzzles in the overworld. It seems all Vellumental bosses will become summons/abilities, but the same might not be true for the stationery bosses.
