Blade - 01.png

In his first phase, this robot jumps back and forth to both sides of the screen, kneeling and firing a cluster of bullets from his gun.

After inflicting some damage, the robot changes attack patterns, which begins the second phase. His first new attack consists of charging at the player. His second one consists of disconnecting his upper half, which then acts as a spinning blade that flies across the screen at various heights, before reconnecting. During the second attack, only the disconnected half is vulnerable to attacks. After he is defeated, it is revealed that Deadeye Joe was commandeering the robot.
