Today is a special day for mothers, but what the heck does it all mean? According to wikipedia, “Mother’s Day is a holiday honoring mothers, celebrated on various days in many places around the world. Mothers often receive gifts on this day.”
Thus, today we celebrate boss fights that involve mummies (hyuk hyuk). Rather than exhaustively research every game that ever featured a mummy battle, let’s break down what these fights always consist of, no matter what.
Flying bandages! Nine times out of ten, a videogame mummy has but one attack: it lurches forward and lets its ribbons fly! This holds especially true for the Castlevania franchise; a series that ain’t afraid to celebrate “Mummy’s Day” every day of the week!
One of the best features of Castlevania games is that you know, at some point near the end, they always run out of ideas and just pit you against all of the Universal Monsters as bosses. Rest assured, folks, when this idea was first pitched, it was no doubt a “graveyard smash”!
What’s that, Pharaoh Man? Fine, fine, go ahead…
