In this Cuphead Grim Matchstick Boss Guide, we have detailed everything you need to know about defeating the Grim Matchstick boss.

Cuphead Grim Matchstick Boss

During Phase one of the fight. You need to make sure that you hop from cloud to cloud to avoid the circular beams. Also, try to parry the last circle so that you can build your EX-gauge. Try to find time in between to shoot the dragon.

Eventually, you will be taking in fireballs which are easy to dodge since their tail does nothing. Keep an eye out for the tail of the boss as it will snap up in an instant and try to stab you. Keep on avoiding all of these attacks and attacking the dragon itself to move on to the next phase.

In the next phase of the fight, Grim will be on the left side of the screen. All you need to do is to watch out for the fire emanating from his nose and you are good to go. It is quite easy to do as all that is required of you is to stay above the nose at all times.

The little flame soldiers that are on the bottom of the screen are much harder to get rid of as they might jump at you at any time. They always make a sound before they jump so watch out for the sound and then get ready to dodge their leaps.

The last section in this boss fight is a little different than the rest in the fact that you do not need to hold down the shoot button at all times. Grim will now have three heads and they will fire bubbles which are filled with flame.

Try to dodge them as that way they will disappear and never come back. If you shoot them, then they will burst and fly up and down which will make it a lot more difficult for you to dodge them.

After an interval, the middle head will send a stream of fire and you need to make sure that you avoid it by staying on top of the screen as much as possible. Keep on shooting Grim until he falls and the fight is over.
