Boss Fight: Angelo Agnus - DMC4
February 8, 2008
This is one boss of many in the new game Devil May Cry 4 (DMC4).
Heres a little video I made to show you how to properly take down Agnus.
Name: Angelo Agnus
Sword Attacks: Agnus has a few easily-dodged sword attacks. He'll use them when you're close, but will shift away from them as the fight progresses.
Gladius Summon: Agnus will summon three Gladiuses into the room, which fly about and attempt to zap you, just like they did in the Containment Room fight way back when. As you did then, you should attempt to Snatch these guys and Buster them to shoot them back into Agnus. It can be a bit more difficult to Snatch them than before, though, as your lockon will prefer to latch you onto Agnus instead of one of the swords. If need be, you can wait for them to attempt to spear you, then Buster them out of the ground.
"Your Strength Will Be Mine!": As Agnus shouts this phrase, he'll start charging up an attack, then latch onto you and drain some of your health, feeding his own life bar. You can avoid this by hitting him while he charges up or jumping over him as he comes your way. You can also flip on Devil Trigger after he latches on to you to break free of his grip and restart fighting.
Fireball Attack: Agnus will summon a disc of energy that floats over his head and start shooting fireballs from it. He can't be interrupted during this attack, so just double-jump around and avoid the flames.
"Time To Die!": Another charging ability here, where Agnus will move to the center of the room, charge up his attack, then unleash a powerful ability that will drain your health. The move appears to be unavoidable, so quickly hit Agnus while he charges, either with your sword or with a Gladius. If you're across the room, use Snatch to pull yourself next to Agnus and go to town.
Cutlass Summoning: Later in the fight, Agnus will drop two Cutlasses into the ground, which will then pop up underneath you. Difficult to avoid, but if you keep moving they should miss you.
"I Will Crush You Until You Die!": Agnus will summon two Cutlasses and attach them to his arms. He'll swirl around for a bit, dealing damage to you if you're anywhere nearby, then throw the Cutlasses. The thrown blades are difficult to dodge since they move so quickly, but you can double-jump over them.
n general, you need to keep up the pressure on Agnus during this fight by constantly whacking him with your sword and doing your best to grab any Gladiuses you see and throwing them at Agnus. Most of Agnus' moves are not difficult to dodge, luckily, especially after you attempt the fight for the first time and have something of an idea of what's going on. The main danger here are his life-stealing moves. If you let Agnus pull these off consistently, you will be at a marked disadvantage during the fight.
