    This is it the final fight of Shantae and the Pirate's Curse.

    The scariest thing about these fights is we are going to rely on our items which can potentially run out while you are standing in the bosses face. If you keep up your speed though there is a good chance your items will end while you are standing out of harms way.

    We are going to rely so heavily on Super Monster Milk, Super Pike Balls, and our Bubble Shields it basically is the key to a perfect run.

    The video below will be a perfect fight of the Entire Boss start to finish.

    First Phase can be powerhoused with some Milk and Super Pike Balls.


    Second Phase you'll need to worry about Guns, Cannon Balls, Scimitars and enemies on bone pillars.

    Cannon Balls can be dodged by standing on the edge of the screen and when one goes over your head just run to the other side and repeat for that side of the screen.

    Guns aren't a problem at all. The Bubble shield will keep you safe. Later on in the fight after the bullets the guns will chase you. Stand in a corner and duck until the guns are gone.

    Scimitars are annoying. Look for opening and stand in the safe area. Later one the blades will shuffle. Keep a close eye on which blades are shuffling and try to keep up.

    The enemies on the bone pillar will most likely die from the Super Pike Ball...this is not guaranteed safety so hair whip them as you jump to the next pillar also.

    Every time you can get into the Pirate Masters Face go crazy and whip away fast fast fast! The second you lose your items effects quickly equip more Pikes and Shields and Milk.


    Third Phase is all about stun locking. You have to press B to fire the gun. The Pirate Master will not sit still for a bullet. You must attack him frequently to get him stuck standing in the same spot enabling you to fire your shot and making a direct hit. Be cautious of your shield and pike as you don't want them running out while you are standing on the Pirate Master as you need to hit him three times.

    PlayUltimate711Thank you for this guide in particular! This was far from the hardest boss to do without getting hit, but it would have been awful without the tips for where to stand for the cannonballs and the guns. Once I looked at your guide and got that it was easy.

    The SharkopathThumbs up. Going to try this soon. Also to note you hit the Pirate Master 4 times with the cannon shots in stage 3. Not 3 times.

    Hi guys ! Here the last guide for the perfect bosses.This is the hardest boss but it's really doable if you follow my guide.Use a shield,a Pike Ball+ and a Monster Milk+ as soon as you can.
    For the 4th (last part),be careful cause the boss can still hit you with projectiles so don't forget to use a shild when you can wink

    To unlock this boss,you'll need all the 20 black magics.

    Here's the vid:



    I really recommand to get all upgrades and at least 5 of each items before starting the True Last Boss.Below there's the video showing you how to get money easily:



    Good luck and have fun guys !

    Don't hesitate to comment my guide if you want to get more infos toast
