Inspired by the old Breath of Fire series.

Canvas and swatch count were ti-i-i-ght for a full color mockup (less than half the resolution of the NES!), especially because I misread the color limit as 12 instead of 14 (and boy, would those extra 2 swatches have been useful!).

...but I liked the idea too much not to try.  I imagine this is the kind of boss where you have to take down the heads individually, and the boss was built from pieces with the idea that they could use the kind of simple translation animations the Bof3 bosses often used.

Some fun was had with the characters -- my Ryu is a girl, my Nina is a brunette, and my manillo is green.  I think the woren girl fits right in, though!
