He's ra... erm, smashing you with tentacles seeing he wants offspring you dead.

And I never got out of that grip before, better yet, I barely ever get grabbed.

The only way out is spinning afaik, but Alpha's right. Don't ever let him grab you.

But he ate Li, so now that Li is part of him it's a little more okay, right? ^^;

Last time I tried I survived for about 2 minutes before he finally jumped on me. >_<

I also accidentally discovered during his first form that spirit form can eat bullets (hit 7 instead of 8 ), so I did that a bit too. xD

Protip: cling to the ceiling and form 2 can't hurt you most of the time.
I never got grabbed when I first fought him...

I just swam around him in circles when I finally beat him. More fun/challenging that way, anyway. ^^;

Funny how I kept dying on forms 1 and 2, but I beat the rest the first time I tried. xD
I almost ate all my food though... not that it would've had any use afterward. xD

I did the swimming in circles thing, combined with a volcano roll. He... didn't last long.

He lasted quite some time for me because his poison kept hitting me so I had to keep switching back to my singing form to regenerate health. I'm a failure at dodging. And then I remembered the aforementioned spirit form trick. And after switching into spirit, I accidentally went too fast and bumped into one and since I wasn't regenerating I died. xD (eep it's a run on D:)

Amusing how that happened AGAIN for me during his 5th form, when I had forgotten about that trick and I was trying to dodge his giant colorful balls of doom and accidentally hit 7 again. xD

Man, that Metroid (Jelly) costume is handy. I think I spent 75% of the game at <= 50% health. Sure didn't use much in the way of consumables though.

Spirit form + Jelly costume is even more handy, especially if enemies are spewing colorful balls of doom at you. =^.^=

The Jelly costume really makes the game easier, and having beaten the game before I got it using it kinda makes me feel like I'm cheating when I'm playing with (although the present tense is a formality; I haven't played Aquaria in half a year).

That, and it looks weird.

A good way to dodge the poison balls of form 2 is to swim along the wall, away from him. After the last one hits the wall, reverse course and shoot. The same trick works in the final Battle Cosmic, dodge toward him, and the energy balls impact his body.

Also in that battle, you can shoot the blue face with energy form while sitting above where the big beam appears, much safer. And as you can keep a stream of shots in flight, you do not need to get the timing right.

Or just eat the bullets for extra health (and extra peace of mind for a few seconds). ^^

Interesting how the form with the creepiest origin/use provides peace of mind, while the form representing two people joined in Love resonates destruction (which, provided more destruction isn't hurling your way as it so often is, provides peace of mind).
