    Pike Balls can be dropped from the Skeleton enemies and can also be bought at the store.

    Redjarman confirms that you can use Super Pike Balls.

    They have long durability and you should only need about 2 or 3 depending on speed.

    You can whip the gel enemies and the eyes on the wall but the Pike Ball must be the only thing that touches the Boss.

    Just equip a ball and jump into the eye over and over until he goes into phase 2 and starts flying around. You can't control the ball but if you can get lucky enough to have him strike you while the ball is above he'll stop midattack and back off. Once he lands for the laser you can either duck under it or if he's too low jump behind him. While ducking or behind the ball should just take care of the damage until death.

    New ParalyzerYou cannot refight a boss. I'd say just wait and do this on New Game Plus if you missed it.

    redjarmancan this be done with super pike balls? or only regular ones?

    New ParalyzerThat's one thing I didn't check. I'd have to start the game on a new gamertag as I can't earn it again to see if they count.

    redjarmanOk, just did it and yes, you can use super pike balls. I guess the only catch is that you probably have to buy some as I made it all the way to the save room before the boss and realized I hadn't had a single enemy drop one yet.

    New ParalyzerIt's very possible to get them from a drop before that fight. Just a low chance.

    redjarmanI suppose. Definitely recommend using Super though, that fight was done in under a minute

    I reverted back to my old save right before it to make up for the lost time I spent backtracking to town for the supers
