    At the end of Episode 5 when you have to fight the boss (Alastor), Joe still does not know what he should call himself. Also, Alastor does not know Joe's name yet. However, in the FMV sequence before the fight, Alastor will read the script that tells about their plan, and the cover page is marked "Viewtiful Joe".

    At the end of the second part of Episode 2, after you break the hole in the ceiling with the bombs, you will enter a room with three lasers, enemies, and a big bomb. Kill the enemies, then use turbo and keep hitting the bomb until you turn to fire. When you are on fire, you will light the fuse of the bomb. Hit it to the end of the room where the stone wall is located and let it explode. It may take two bombs to destroy it.

    Immediately before the end of the episode when you have to face King Charles the 3rd, there are four Statues. Use your Mach Speed and punch them to light them on fire. You will catch on fire and can punch the rest. You will get the key to enter the room to face the Boss.

After that, there will be a straight away and enemies will pop up. One will contain a pink juice (infinite VFX power for a period of time). Some enemies will pop out. Start attacking them in slow motion. When a target comes on them, kick them. All the other enemies will get targets on them. Every time you hit one of them, you will get an extra 100 Viewtiful points.

  • Destroy the tank in Episode 5

    When you encounter the tank at the start of the episode, your punches and kicks will not do much damage (not even in Slow Motion or Mach Speed). When it fires a large bullet at you, go into Slow Motion and punch the bullet back at the tank. It will not destroy it, but it will do damage to it.

  • Defeating Gran Bruce

    When you first face Gran Bruce, quickly use Mach Speed and go all the way down where Bruce recovers well first. He will try, and you need to use your Mach Speed and run up and down around that area. He will then get tired. Start kicking and punching him in Slow Motion or Mach Speed. He will then spit bombs out at you. Run around again. He will then accidentally eat one. Hit him, and it will take a lot of health from him. Keep doing this until you defeat him.

  • Defeating King Charles the 3rd

    After you land an attack on him, he will turn into many bats. Jump up and hit as many of the bats as you can. Each bat you hit will take some of his life away.

  • Defeating Rhino Davidson

    Start by Mach Speeding him and he will defend with his axe. Two things may happen. He will either attack you or the axe will slip out of his hands, leaving him open for attack. If he charges at you, jump out of the way and run into the fire he left by for extra fire damage when you punch him. He should be dizzy from smacking his head on the wall, so you can attack him. Repeat those steps to defeat him.

  • Defeating the Boss with guns

    When you smash all of the axes, you will enter a door. Go through it and you will battle a Boss with guns. When he fires a shot, switch to slow motion and punch his bullets. Then, slow motion again and keep punching him.

  • Defeating the Boss with the ship steering wheel

  • Special moves

      Red Hot Kick: The downward diagonal kick is both a great leaping attack and a handy way to collect objects in the air. Use it repeatedly on dazed enemies to keep them flying around at ground level, damaging each other.

      Air Joe: A leaping punch-and-kick combination, the Air Joe is both handy and stylish. Sometimes a plain old punch or kick in the air keeps you up there for too long. The combo makes you an airborne threat instead.

      Sliding: A sliding kick that carries you across the screen, the sliding attack is a great way to link combos. You can attack from a distance and then be in position to smack foes again when they return to earth.

      Ukemi: Attacks that knock you off your feet do the most damage, generally, and the Ukemi move heals your pain. As you fall backward, zoom in before you hit the ground. Your damage will decrease and you will come up ready to fight.

      VFX Turbo Charger: Arguably the best skill your money can buy, the Turbo Charger doubles the rate at which your VFX Meter refills, keeping you in the action longer. You will wonder how you ever got along without it.

      Viewtiful Forever: While dodging an attack in Slow Motion, zoom in. You will strike a pose, radiate energy, and do damage to everyone around you. It burns up a lot of JFX.
