The Fifth Finale

WARNING! SPOILERS! This post contains spoilers regarding the Japanese Super Mario World hack, Super Mario World: VIP & Wall Mix 5, the fifth in the VIP series. View at your own risk if you wish to find out for yourself.

If you have played this series of Japanese hacks, you may remember that each final boss is an original boss, meaning they are exclusive VIP bosses. The final boss of Super Mario World: VIP & Wall Mix 4 is considered an original boss, but it is loosely based on the final form of the Seven Heroes, the final boss from Romancing SaGa 2. However, on an interesting note, the final boss of the latest VIP hack is nothing original at all, but rather it is none other than Julius Vandole, the main antagonist of Final Fantasy Adventure. Not to mention, he is located in the game's final stage, Bowser's Castle and completely replaces Bowser as the final boss. Also, the boss's ASM file has been slightly modified from the one in the demo versions. With more arsenal added to two of his attacks and an extra phase, Julius is much tougher to defeat. Good luck!

  1. He is not the final boss, though.
