Spider-Queen

okami has the best bosses ever

fucking ninetails who thinks he’s a god and lives on a constantly moving demon island and has the powers of a god

lechku and nechku who are twin demon owls who live on a volcano

a ghost samurai that took over the imperial city by infecting it with disease

a huge spider queen with no face and a flower with fucking eyeballs instead of anthers

a demon skeleton covered in armor that’s fucking covered in fire

an eight headed serpent that’s fucking invincible and controls all the elements

BUT HOLD THE FUCK UP SON THAT’S ONLY THE WEAKER REINCARNATION OF FUCKING TRUE OROCHI

HE’S FUCKING GOLDEN

but wait

of course there’s the final boss

a dEMONIC BALL OF HATRED AND EVIL THAT TAKES ON A SHIT TON OF DIFFERENT FORMS

NOT TO MENTION FIGHTING THEM IS COOL AND HARD AS FUCK

"The Shadow Isles – They say they don’t exist. Mythical islands haunted by ghosts and specters. Tales to frighten children. But I know better. I have been there. When I first set foot there I immediately knew something was wrong with that place. My skin crawled and in the pit of my stomach I felt a terrible revulsion. Life didn’t belong there. But I also knew… somehow, deep inside I knew, that the islands welcomed me. They wanted me."

"As I wandered deeper I saw death all around me. Ghostly trees, grass and flowers engulfed me in their horrifying radiance. It was so quiet and so beautiful. I passed my hand through a spectral leaf fluttering in the wind; but there was no wind. That was when I understood that death was another world and I was at its door."

“Then I heard the song; the spider’s song. My companion cried out in terror and fell to his knees. I embraced him. I told him he had nothing to fear. He was going to a better place. I will take them all to a better place.”
