Phantoon by Emortal982 Phantoon by Emortal982
Another one of the iconic bosses of Super Metroid.
What a great game :)

he disappeared too often for my taste to make that boss fight fun

You should draw the Metroid Prime. That was a killer boss as well!

Eyeball in the mouth was a great design choice. The ghost part helps too. Great bumps and creases on the forehead (bulb? brain?) part.

Thanks.  There was a lot of loose experimenting with textures while building his general shapes.  I really wanted to keep him grungy. :)

Ah, the current boss I'm facing in Super Metroid, only real complaint I have about Phantoon is that I can't access the save station before his room due the sucker leaching all of the power in the wrecked ship :shakefist: So I always have to hike all the way to him from Crateria every single time *grumbles* He's been fun to fight though, so at least there's that.

I just fought him yesterday, and I all but forgot about how that one went.  The fact that you only have a second to hit him once in a while makes it a bit frustrating.  Half my time was spent rolling to each corner to dodge the circular flame attack, and the other half was spent wondering when exactly he planned on opening his eye.

Mhm, I've had more trouble figuring out how to beat Phantoon than I have any of the others so far, do Power Bombs work on him, or just make Phantoon angry like Crocomire and otherwise have no affect on him? ...'cause if the Power Bombs are superior to the Super Missiles in terms of damage, then I just might try that next time I go play the game.
