Boss fight sf3
Bosses are opponents with increased health, high damage, and unique abilities in Shadow Fight 3, which are fought at the end of each level. They often have some important roles in the plot. Some bosses have their own unique way of fighting, mainly in their special abilities and to some extent, their battle mechanics that are exclusive to each boss. In some cases, the players will need to change their playstyle and try new tactics in order to overcome certain abilities and mechanics of certain bosses. Boss fights require three rounds to be won instead of the usual two. Defeating them rewards the players with 5 gems, along with other rewards, with some boss fights guaranteeing one fixed card of up to Legendary rarity.

Now, he has become an evil tyrant who is hated by everyone that suffered because of his deeds. Shadow aims to create the world where the late May is alive and well, by eliminating the current one and forming a new one on its ashes.

The final battle with Shadow can last up to seven rounds, in which the player is required to score four victories in order to be declared victorius. This fight is much different than any fights the player has fought, as it features many unique mechanics and cutscenes that takes place whenever the player won against Shadow in each phase.

In the first phase, Shadow fights by controlling a giant robot from the inside. The robot will not recoil from any non-shadow attacks. It has three main offensive abilities: it's hands, energy blades, and missile launchers. The robot can deal guaranteed critical hits with its hands and energy blades.

In the second phase, Shadow fights the player by himself. He utilizes a very deadly combat style, which is a mix of many moves combined into a number of long combos. Shadow also has a shield which protect his health from attacks. Any attacks he receive will reduce the shield instead.

In the third and final phase, Shadow fights in permanent shadow form, using his shadow powers he obtained after fusing with Shadow Mind. He can conjures many weapons to be used against the player, as well as make Shadow Mind emerges to shoot out a devastating shadow energy beam in a huge radius.
