fourth level of the Nediam, Thexder encounters a boss enemy. These boss enemies
are unlike the boss enemies in the sequel
Firehawk. In Firehawk, the boss enemies were fairly unique creatures (see
the picture to the right of the Firehawk stage 2 boss). In the original Thexder,
Uesaka and Godai,
combined many smaller creatures into one large boss. There were four such bosses
in the original Thexder.
