The climax of The Wild West chapter in Live A Live arrives with the fated showdown between The Sundown Kid and O. Dio, leader of the bandits harassing the town. Mad Dog joins you in battle, and it is up to the two of you to save Success. Here is how to defeat O. Dio in The Wild West Scenario in Live A Live.
Live A Live – How to beat O. Dio in The Wild West Chapter
Your strategy for beating O. Dio will depend on whether you used traps and how many. This directly affects the number of gang members that are in combat with him. If you use no traps, you will face the full force of the gang with their boss. If you use some traps, you will face a portion of the gang. Finally, if you manage to place all traps, you will only battle O. Dio.
If you fight O. Dio with either all his gang members or just some of them, you will primarily want to focus on O. Dio. Beating him with all his gang members is extremely difficult but possible. Take out some gang members to prevent them from overwhelming you, but do not kill them all, or O. Dio will use his strongest attacks.
Once you have defeated enough gang members, leaving around three or four, you will want to hit O. Dio with everything you have. Get right on top of O. Dio to reduce his usage of strong attacks and spam The Sundown Kid's Double Shot and Mad Dog's Texas Jitterbug abilities to inflict maximum damage. If either character goes down, use your area healing item to bring them back to life.
The same strategy applies if you fight him alone—get as close as you can and spam those two moves. One thing to note if you fight O. Dio alone is that two boulders appear on the map. Your attacks cannot pass through these, but his can. So do not try to use these as cover. After you deal enough damage, O. Dio will fall, and the town will be saved.
