When bosses go big

Kudara, Otogi
Dreamy Xbox slasher Otogi is a magic moment from start to too-early finish, pulling some pretty impressive bosses out of its Japanese mythology grab-bag on the way.

While not quite as daunting as the nailed-down Demon God, it's the early encounter with a monstrous electrically-charged centipede, Kudara, that was truly a boss with the Power of X.

Above: It's the boss equivalent of a game of chicken - don't slash until you see the whites of his tonsils

Encircling his Zen garden graveyard like a homicidal Slinky, the only way to bring Kudara down is by timing a last-minute dive out of the way of his jaws and slapping him upside the head - usually resulting in a shower of lightning for your troubles.
