I never noticed this thread until there was a date jump from August to December/January. Anyways... Balrog: 6/10 Kinda an "Eh" character. Mainly for me because he was the one that fed Toroko a red flower (and that whole sequence) and that he never goes the heck away, but he does save your hide in the seal chamber, so it KINDA makes up for that. Didn't feel like skimming through 45 pages, so I assume we transitioned from characters to random enemies/items in CS... Um... Notebook that tells how to drain surface robots.
The Doctor: 5/10 - He's like the most villainy villain I've ever seen, 'cause he doesn't seem like to have a clear goal, he just does what he does because he's pure evil. Basically, I find nothing likable about him, nothing which I could sympathize with. I think his character could be more detailed. Though... he still gets 5, because as a villain, he seems to be effective. The good villain is hard to defeat. Without a strong villain, the game would have no meaning.
For all I care, Mr. Little can go die in hole with his nemesis. (Shot to death with Lv.1 Nemesis shots)
Ok, enough of the hate. I just can't use the Nemesis for a challenge. (except for the Nemesis Challenge) Also, I don't really like the Nemesis in general. I prefer the Blade because it's the last thing of King you'll probably remember. (Really hate Balrog for that...)
Anyway... With all that out of the way, I'd say 6-7/10. You won't know where he is unless your really observant, or happened to notice something move. Um... I'd say one of Jenka's puppies, but... Hajime (The dog by Curly and required to make all the other dogs to show up.)
I was going to write a story for Monster X, but... I think I'll just stick to the topic.
A mysterious boss. What is a cat doing inside Monster X? And what becomes of the cat?
X can be a frustrating boss if you let your guard down against those homing missiles! But, the fact that you can ride Monster X adds a lot of fun and challenge to the battle. Don't get run over! xD
