I still want General Guy to win because of how much chaos it is to fight all of his Shy Guys, and then him in his tank in such a creative boss fight

Sorry Doopliss, you can’t steal my body to look like I’m saving you this time.

EDIT: I’d be really happy with either choice, I just prefer General Guy by a bit.

Congrats to General Guy being the general of this thread! I still agree with this as while I’d argue out of the final two Count Bleck is stronger story-wise, General Guy beats out Count Bleck in terms of having the most fun boss gameplay out of any of these bosses, with a fun, commanding personality.
