Tips & Strategies for Beating Emo Puffer (Boss)

Strategy Checklist
CheckmarkMaintain distance from Puffer

CheckmarkDefeat the Big Noise first

Maintain Distance from Puffer

Due to the spikes that extend out of the Pufferfish's body, it's best to maintain a distance from the 2 bosses. Keeping a distance also protects you from the spike launch, which doesn't cover a great range.

Defeat Big Noise First

Since this boss battle takes place during a Dive Battle, it's best to defeat the purple Emotion Noise first, since it can get in the way of you locking on to and avoiding the Pufferfish. Note that you're also only given 3 minutes to finish the Dive Battle.
