Skyward Sword: Final Showdown by ruina Skyward Sword: Final Showdown by ruina

PLEASE DO NOT REPOST. I HAVE A TUMBLR. PLEASE REBLOG FROM: ballaquia.tumblr.com/post/2514…





It was getting to the point where I was really sick of working on this, so I'm going to take a step back before I mess it up any further...

My fail gameplay:
I actually didn't know that you could charge your sword too, so my final boss fight wasn't as flashy and cool as it could have been. :( I also ignored all of the finishing blow opportunities after my first attempt was dodged and I got hit instead, so this fight became a never-ending poke-fest... at least until I ran out of recovery items and I finally decided to go for the finishing blow, and of course it worked... yeah, I'm not a really bright gamer. orz

Don't feel bad about the "Raise it Skyward" thing. Didn't know you could do that either when you fought Demise at first. Took me about 3-6 times to kill him.

it took so long because my arm was getting sore from trying the lightning skyward strike, because you had to hold the remote EVEN MORE straight up and still than usual

Aw. D:
My arm started getting sore pretty early on in the game too, until I realized I could just flip the wiimote vertically in my hand. Never raised my arm again. xD;

I agree with you on that final battle. It wasn't so good as it could have been. I mean, you can never duck his attacks whatever you do, you can't charge your sword anytime and many times the wi remote won't feel you hold it right! I got so angry when I tried to kill that ugly bastard looking like a last second made up character who can only talk in circles of how string and evil he is and how he is going to kill you and bla bla...he made me pissed of! I never get that in a zelda game. Not ever that extreme. I ended fighting him and made in ten minutes a comic about link killing Demise for 1000 times in a row and then he decides to make the ending blow 1000 times again and then he says (in my comic)
Link: I will never get tired of this cus this is fun!!

Just wrote and draw  it to get out my frustration. 

Well I cleared him by using a potion of immortality for 3 minutes and  double maximum healing.


The art you made looks fantastic! Link looks strong and confident! Cool too! Instead of getting stabbed and fried all the time...;P

Indeed, think about it guys:

Demise, the one being that caused all these problems, the mastermind behind it all, the asshole who ruined the world was finally withing our reach, and Link was more than eager to show this bastard what we mortals can do when feelings like love or friendship support us.

When Link defeated him and he had the balls to annoy us by stating that he'll be back, Link should've said:

AND WE'LL ALSO HERE TO SEND YOU BACK TO THE DARKNESS WHERE YOU BELONG.

And so the line continues, whenever Demise returns Link will return as well to stop him all over again for all eternity.

this guy made me so mad for my first play through of skyward sword cuz he was SOOO HARD!!!! god i love the game, but i swore so much haha!  m second run through i wanted to go more into the back stories and do all the side quests, which i did. got the "absurdly sturdy shield" proceeded to shield bash whenever he did his crazy charge thing at me.  oh life became so much easier from that point....  rather than dodge his psycho charge, which was scary and difficult, you can shield bash and stun him and get a hit in.  it was a great day lol

This battle may be epic but was also annoying for me. First I also didn't know you could charge your sword with lightning and every time I do so, that asshole would attack me and I always got hit, until I figured out that I was supposed to side jump to doge it. But it was still a pretty cool fight.

Great artwork of the fight! You've done a damn fine job on it with Link and Demise charging towards each other for the final clash :clap: Wonderful job on the lighting and especially on Demise :)

About your gameplay experience: It took some time for me as well before I learned that I can charge the sword. It was not an easy fight, but I liked it a lot. I played it five times in a row :D
