Still really hate the aeon battles.
Wow... two washouts in a single day! Sorry to end this early. BTW Agent, what did the scan thing say?
Zalamander 8-0 Dark Shiva
These aeons just have no luck! Well, Zalamander does have a reputation to uphold and the game decimated Shiva especially, so no surprise.
Round 1 - Battle 15
It's brother won the second round, and this guy has even more of a legacy. Besides a boss, also a suspect in the Mi'hen case. It seems to have stayed the same thing as in X, story wise, and is the center for a lot of this game's humor. But, despite having all that, it's got a pretty notoriously formidable opponent...
Arguably the toughest boss in the game outside Via Infinito. It's also, for once, and original in this game. This is Bikanel's main antagonist, and all the sidequests leading up to are happen to be among the sidequests that make X-2 good. It's also encounterable earlier in the game but made intentionally impossible to defeat because of it's "Unnatural Selection".
Whether Eater's stomach can handle this thing is questionable. Even CONGRATS won't help this time!
I choose Angra Mainyuu because, aside from the sidequests, every reason I can think of NOT to vote for bosses like Paragon and Trema doesn't apply to Angra. It might have been a hard battle, but it was more of a long epic one.
Also the fact that "Under Bevelle" plays for it is more of a reason.

Oh, and re, the Zalamander, I was thinking of the Hypello-style description on the Oversouled Zalamander -- "The Zalamamander gathers itsh shtrength and then attacks, giving yoo a shtinky time?"

Angra Mainyu. I liked that prior to Chapter 5, if you encountered it on a dig, you could steal Megalixirs from it and keep them even if you flee.
I know I'm probably fighting a losing battle here, but I really hate superbosses.
I had forgotten that there was an actual monster that wasnt in X. Therefore it gets my vote for being an original
Chocobo Eater Cannt stand to see it be white washed like this.
Angra Mainyuu 9-3 Chocobo Eater
Yeah... the Chocobo Eater is practically a runt next to this guy. No worries, though, we still have the Anything Eater moving on!
Anyway I expect to see Angra progress far...
5 more battles to go in the first round!
Round 1 - Battle 16
Meyvn of the Youth League. So far, not a single Crimson member has won... Paine has fallen, Gippal's down as well. But anyway, seeing as this guy is the REAL challenge of the Den of Woe, Noojie-Woojie may quite possible have what it takes to pull it off.
This giant bug from the secret Mi'hen Cave has a name that's actually a hidden reference to FFVII. Wow, Square really loves FFVII... but anyway, he has a bit of an interesting puzzle to get to, so hey.
Also a note, he's the only "Boss" that you can get away with getting 100% in one shot without defeating, probably because of the lack of cutscene. But I'd say the S/M/L Bomb cave is worth it for the items, and you get a pretty sick GG for winning here!
I will have to say... Nooj.
Time for a Crimson/DoW boss to win.
Let's see, really large bug vs. the second-coolest of the Crimson Squad... Nooj, I guess.
Ah well, not a whole myriad of votes this time, but gotta play by the time rules... just for the record, 5 votes maximum (like in the Gippal-Georapella fight) will make me prolong a battle, any more than that and it'll continue.
Nooj 4-3 King VERMIN!
At last, the most badass and mysterious Crimson Squad member gets a win by squashing this giant bug. Score THREE for the Youth League! (Lucil and Elma I mean).
Round 1 - Battle 17
Another aeon, this time in it's rightful place, and concluding the rather fun tourist trap sidequest. This is the one and only Aeon battle which is optional, which is no surprise as it's actually challenging. Unlike the other aeons Yojimbo has an attack that actually threatens you, that being Zanmato which in this game makes everyone's HP at 1. All the other aeons, even Anima and the Magus Sisters, are runts compared to Yojimbo in this game.
This is actually a reincarnation of good old Lord Jyscal Guado. I guess this tells us Seymour never sent him... but anyway, another Via Infinito boss. Surprisingly these have all been dropping like flies, Aranea, Concherer, and even Paragon.
Anyway this guy can be a real jerk if you don't prepare well, and that is for Ultima. But then again it becomes a joke when you learn he has only 9999 HP (Cat Nip), and that CONGRATS works as well.
