Cave Story Bosses from easiest to hardest. (no damage)

Today I am ranking the bosses of Cave Story from easiest to hardest. This time, they are ranked on how hard the boss without taking damage.

This is unfinished

21. Balrog (1)

Balrog sucks at fighting.

20. Igor

Like Balrog, but with a lot more health so you have more time to get screwed over. He can't even deal contact damage.

19. Red Ogre

When the mimiga say this is a beast that destroyed their village, you expect something that poses a huge threat that would maul anything in sight. Then you see him in last cave (hidden), you know you're in for a challange. Then you fight him and destroy him with 3-4 spur shots. Pathetic.

18. Ironhead Fun fight, but really easy, the thing that poses the most danger is the debris. Nice that you get the alien medal a…

Cave Story+ on sale for another day ish

Cave Story+ went on sale for $5.09 CDN. I decided not to take any further chances and so I bought it.

This is the moment I have been waiting for...hopefully I'll be able to help the wiki further with official translation bits and such. The extra modes like Curly Story and Wind Fortress are supposed to be in here...right? (I hope.)

Ohhhhh my gosh I'm actually really excited for this.

Hopeful return

I'm alive...hopefully.

Was on a bit of inactivity here, still lurking on and off, but not really editing. I recently finished all my exams, so hopefully that means more time for picking up where I left off here while also doing the tasks I was doing over on Nitrome Wiki.

Eventually I do want to get a copy of the Steam version of Cave Story, but I've been debating whether or not it is a good idea to wait and see if it goes on sale/is included in a future Humble Bundle or just purchase it now. Having a NICALiS port to play would be helpful in contributing to these articles, particularly in the Game Modes and just the Cave Story+ article overall.

Defining our categories

I'm going to assume our categorisation for all items is based on where they are categorised within the game. I might consider writing just general articles about each category. There is already a page for Enemies, for example, but it just lists each enemy.

Arguably I think some bosses in Cave Story do not have health metres and are defined by the necessity to defeat them once the player has started the battle. This would include the Ravil in Grasstown, but I'm up for just using the in-game credits as a basis for categorisation.

Anyways, these are some quick snippets of notes that might come in handy for creating those general sort of articles. Keep in mind that these aren't to be taken as the official definitions, but ones that I have been u…

Battle Tactics

Here you will find tips on battling every enemy and Boss in Cave Story (not counting Wind Fortress) Thus, it will be noted that this may be a spoiler, depending on how far you have made it into the game.

This page is currently incomplete, but I will be working to finish it.

  • 1 First Cave
    • 1.1 Bats
    • 1.2 Critters
    • 1.3 The Door
  • 2 Mimiga Village
    • 2.1 Balrog
    • 2.2 Grave Keeper
  • 3 Egg Coridor
    • 3.1 Behemoth
    • 3.2 Beetle

Before you can fight at all first you will need to find the Polar Star. Once you do, start taking down your enemies. Even though they are all very weak at this point, you only have 6 health, if you have obtained the Life Capsule, so they do pose a threat.

These particular bats only fly a fixed distance up and down, regardless of your position, so they are not dange…

Okay, I said last week that I would start renaming pages this week, so here goes!

Redirects should be placed from the NiCALis translation linking to the AG, unless the item is exclusive to a NiCALis port.

I might set up a Project namespace page for this later, but for now, we'll have to make do with this rushed blog post listing all names that would fall under this category so that in the case the pages need to be renamed again, no one has to go through as much trouble to look them all up.

I also plan on creating templates based on each location, so that I can transclude the location category in them. This should make it easier to edit one template and change the category name within it rather than having to edit every page within a double na…

Busy life

Sorry I haven't really been around much. Many things have been holding me up: school, working on other wikis. I do intend to come back and continue to work on fixing the articles plus (hopefully) improving the wiki's navigation and better ways of presenting the two translations together when we do go forth with the proposed renames.

I never got around to closing that thread XD which I was hoping to do last month. Unfortunately, not as many users have participated in the discussion as I hoped but it seems as though the decision would be to rename all the pages based on the AG one. Still, you have time to voice your opinion on this matter for the time being.

Midterms are this week, so I probably won't be around much at all. However, I do get a …

Getting a bot flag for the wiki

I operate a bot called Dzylon's Bot or DzyBot. I have used it to make many thousands of changes on both of my two major wikis.[1], [2], [3], [4] Repetitive tasks are a breeze when I have control of it; particularly formatting changes. Without a bot flag, however, the bot completely floods both Special:WikiActivity and Special:RecentChanges. Bot flags hide the changes from those two pages; you can only see the bot changes if you look for them in either the bot's contributions or by turning on the "Show bots" option in RecentChanges. In accordance with Wikia policy, my bot may receive a bot flag on this wiki if the community approves of it.

Do you guys approve of it?

Edit: Oh, and the bot's functions would open to the community. If there's anything …

Cave Story Wiki adoption

UPDATE: I just sent in the adoption request today. ~November 16, 2013

Hi everyone who still visits this wiki:

Twelve days from the time this post was made, the last active admin will have been inactive for two months (last active September 15, 2013). Two months (60 days to be exact) is the maximum length an admin can be inactive until the wiki becomes eligible for adoption. Earlier in October, I tried to contact King Marth 64 and Phantom R (who was last active here about 4 months ago). Neither of them have responded to my message, and I don't know if they ever will.

After accumulating over 300 edits on Cave Story Wiki, I have decided I want to submit an adoption request to help the wiki further improve. I had a look at some of the past discus…

So Yeah

Hello Cave Story Wiki, I'm an ancient admin. I like to check up on this place every once in a while to see if anything is happening. I myself have been meaning to return to this place someday, but with each promise I have failed. With that said, I've pushed myself to try again. I see this place looks a lot more lively than usual, which is a great thing and something I like to see. I don't know if I'd be wanted as an admin if I were to make a full return, but can somebody give me some pointers? Like, who are the admins here now? How can I help out?

Also, Message Walls are a good feature. We should consider turning them on.

A Little More Life

Before I begin, if you don't know me, I'm some really unactive ancient admin here. I keep wanting to come back here and edit again, but I haven't played Cave Story in a while though it's my favorite game of all time. However, I do check back here frequently and I'm happy to see this place in great shape with daily editors, thank you all, but what my blog is about is that this place needs a little more life. We may be somewhat small, but I think we could possibly maintain a great community of Cave Story fans here. What do you guys think? Also, active admins, show ye selves!

Cave Story 3DS Patch/eShop version?

According to GoNintendo, Nintendo Power might have confirmed a patch for Cave Story 3D, or an eShop version. If it's a patch, we might get some glitches fixed and some new content, you can leave ideas in the comments. It might also be an eShop version, the game is kinda small.

No Jokes!

I have noticed on this wiki that recently someone has been making edits that are not in any way true. Most of his edits say inappropriate things. I just want to remind everyone to be serious when it comes to editing, and not to joke around. Thanks!

Leave a message on my talk page if I can help with anything.

Death to Second Person

This wiki is plagued with second person. An example of second person is "After you kill Ballos, the walls close in on you." First and second person shouldn't be used in informative writing, as anyone who has taken English classes beyond 7th grade. Instead, replace you with Quote or "the player", or just rewrite the page.

Also, should we add the "location" catagory to Mimiga Village pages? It is a catagory to sub-catagory relation after all...

Hello there, people. I'm the guy who started thos wiki, and I honestly never thought anyone would ever find this. I've long since forgotten the password and e-mail for my old account, but adding a 2 to my username should suffice.

This wiki is in a state of dispair, and I think we need to fix that. I'lee try to spend as much time on this as can, but I have quite a few other projects going on. Anyway, it's good to be back.

Adios for now!

This wiki really seems beyond repair. It looks visually unattractive, and some of the templates are sloppy. Some articles are guide-like, while others are short and informative. However, almost all articles have:

Poor grammar.
Poor spelling.
Poor formatting.
Poor writing.
Inconsistencies with the games.
Outright incorrect information.
Opinionated/biased content.
And so on...

I might not edit a lot, but I do/did try to check back, hoping for a reform of almost the entire wiki. To those who read this, I recommend looking at the top wikis on this page, and trying to learn from them, especially this one.
