My boss numbers are going to be really weird now, because I decided to fight Lexaeus super-early. Im generally really good at this fight, and that extra Accessory Slot is extremely useful, so I figured this was a good course of action. By super-early, I am referring to the fact that Lexaeus Battle Level is 40. Also, I wanted Oathkeeper and Limit Form, and Lexaeus happened to be in the same place. Since I have Finishing Leap now, I can work it into combos, but I have to start all of my combos off with magic. Fire, Upper Slash, Finishing Leap seems to work well enough. I am really bad at spelling silhouette, which is annoying because Im usually impeccable with spelling. I remember most spellings by pronouncing them phonetically in my head, but SIL-ho-ETT is kind of like saying why as hwy so it throws me off. Attempts: 3 (getting used to Reflects tiny AoE is weird) Difficulty: spelling silhouette correctly/10 FAQ: Q: Why arent you using the X Button? A: To force myself to play differently and examine other options the game gives me. Q: Why not Level 1 No X Button? A: Im not confident Id even finish the run anytime soon. Also, Id rather show something that most players could conceivably do without tearing their hair out. Q: If its not Level 1, cant you just grind to take away all the challenge? A: Nope. Im capping my level at the lowest displayed level of any incomplete world. I will also be fighting Absent Silhouettes at the appropriate battle levels. Except Zexion. Frick Zexion. Q: But you used the X button shortcut! A: Damn right I did. Im restricting myself enough by disallowing the X button. Its really more of a No Command Menu run anyway. No X Button just sounds cooler, even though strictly speaking it limits me less. Q: Which bosses are impossible without the X button? A: As of right now, Twilight Thorn, Axel I, Boat Pete, Luxord, and Data Luxord are all impossible without the X Button. This challenge run was inspired by Pannenkoeks A Button Challenge in Super Mario 64. Go check him out if you like that game!
