How to Beat Death Metal in No More Heroes

Death Metal is No More Heroes’ first boss fight. Before you encounter Death Metal, make sure you have already learned the controls. Notably, he will murk you if you allow him because playing No More Heroes is not easy even if you choose the easiest difficulty option.

Since Death Metal is the first boss fight, he would not be using a lot of tricks on you. He leaps around and swings his massive sword. He will use a couple of attacks but all of them are almost similar. What all you need to do is to stay locked on and approach him but be ready to roll to the side then take a run and slap him a few times.

Notably, you will only be able to inflict damage to Death Metal before he gets recovered and as soon as you hear the defensive clashing voice, you will have to take a back step.

Eventually, you will get a new phase for which Death Metal will create two clones. Now, they are three and they will try to cause heavy damage but the two clones he created are not very powerful. What all you need to do is to focus on them because they have low-ish health and they can be easily rush down.

Keep moving and stay locked on as much as you can to make sure you are not surrounded by him. Now, Death Metal will try another move that can only be avoided if you keep moving. When you finally stun Death Metal, try to watch out for the spinning head stars animation and lay off your attack. Once you have managed to stun the boss, you will only have a  brief window to catch them for a wrestling move and the damage you receive is worth the extra effort.

Notably, you will get health and a battery box in boss rooms. Going to grab them will leave you in a vulnerable condition. So, make sure to go there only if you absolutely need them.
