Mega Man X8: Iron Fist Maverick Challenge
« on: January 04, 2016, 03:27:32 AM »
Welcome to the MMX8 Iron Fist Challenge! The premise is simple; defeat all 8 Mavericks using the K-Knuckle. What makes this challenge unique is that the bosses are done chronologically; I'm collecting weapons as I go, which means that I have to put some thought into what order I take the bosses down. This adds an interesting dynamic as the K-Knuckle already has its fair share of limitations. (i.e. Earthrock Trilobyte is literally invincible without Yodantotsu or Ganzahana)

As usual, the no-damage rule applies here.

Makes me think about doing a Layer X Zero K-Knuckle only run. Would make an interesting stream perhaps... I wonder if it would even be doable against the later bosses.

I thought about this; the K-Knuckle has certain limitations since the game wasn't exactly designed around it. Copy Sigma would be near-impossible to hit once he lights the floor on fire, and guard breaking Lumine multiple times in his final phase would be just as fruitless. Stageplay wouldn't be too bad since you can just skip enemies that might be problematic. The hard part would be those miniboss rooms that throw swarms of enemies at you; the K-Knuckle is terrible in the area of crowd control. The ride armor barrage in Pandamonium's stage can get pretty nasty too.

I do think it'd be pretty entertaining tho. Pair the run with some Streets of Rage BGM and you've got yourself a good time!  XD

Yes that is exactly who I had in mind when I questioned it; Copy Sigma. I could always do a mostly K-Knuckle run I guess, lol.
