Stuffy the 64th
Stuffy the 64th (referred to as Stuffy the Dolphin in the coffee-table book) is the boss of Episode 8 in Wario: Master of Disguise. He is a dolphin who lives in Blowhole Castle, and is the 64th ruler of the Dolphinian empire. He wears a purple wig and a gold crown. Despite being a dolphin, Stuffy breathes underwater like a fish and gasps for breath if he stays out of the water for too long.
Stuffy the 64th will start attacking by coming out of the water and shooting balls of energy out of his mouth at the player. He will then summon two Fluffy the Dolphins; they will shoot smaller balls of energy at Wario. Stuffy will swim around the bottom in the water three times, and then jump out, landing in an opening on the middle of the stage. If Wario stands on one of the switches, the gap in the middle will close up for a short amount of time. By changing into Genius Wario, the player can hit Stuffy the 64th multiple times to make him suffocate. Landing enough hits will eventually force Stuffy into the next room.
In this room, there is a single platform in the middle, with spikes to the right. Stuffy will once again summon two Fluffys to attack. The player must once again defeat them, causing Stuffy to lunge from the water. The player must then repeatedly attack Stuffy, forcing the Dolphin into the spikes. Once this process is repeated enough, Stuffy will travel into the third and final room of the battle.
In this final room, there is a single platform with a single switch. Stuffy will summon two Fluffy the Dolphins once more. Once they are defeated, Stuffy will lunge out of the water; Wario must hit the switch during this time, causing a gate to open that Stuffy will run into. The player must repeatedly attack Stuffy three times in order to advance to the next episode.
If Wario falls into the water and is swept back a room at any point, Count Cannoli will be waiting for Wario. If he comes into contact with Cannoli, he will be chased out of the boss room entirely, forcing him to restart from phase 1.
The 64th ruler of the glorious Dolphinian empire. It is whispered that he once was known by another name, but all who attempted to uncover it have met a bad end.
