The Sumo Rikishi Boss is a robotic juggernaut of strength, able to throw even

cars and machinery as projectile weapons. Attacking at deceptively fast speed forhis size, the massive body of the Rikishi boss hides certain weak points that theplayer will be able to exploit.

Warlod Date Masamune. His origins are a complete mystery – no one knows why he is fighting against the human race, and what powers he possesses.

Transported via a bird-like mount, Date Masamune holds nothing but a similar

laser katana at his side. Wearing a suit of bulletproof plate armor, this will be a

sword-fight players won’t want to bring a gun to!
