Darius, Darius Plus, Darius Alpha, Super Darius and Super Darius II[]

This fight is very similar to Iron Hammer with the biggest difference being that its weakspot (its mouth) is only vulnerable when it attacks. Its attacks consist of small laser shots from its pectoral (lower) fin, four separate thick laser shot from its dorsal (upper) fin and single fireballs from its mouth (this is the only time you can damage it by shooting at its mouth before it closes it)

All of its attacks besides the fireball attack are triggered when the player is positioned in front of the bodypart that launches that certain attack. Hopefully, both fins can be destroyed to neutralize the attacks, leaving only the fireball attack to deal with.

Name's Origin[]

Keen Bayonet is a swordfish like battleship that has a sword like nose and shots projectiles. Exactly the same thing as a ordinary bayonet.
