Is that... is that Toroko? Wait, come back!
Run after her and through the door
Entered Mimiga Village
You get outside and King is standing there.
"Give me the key!"

"No!"
Toroko runs off in a panic, knocking King out of the way. :toroko2::toroko2::toroko2:

A key, eh? Yeah, I should probably follow her.
Run past King and jump down to the bottom level
Run for the shack and enter it

My hair is standing on end? It's almost like someone or something "else"... is in here, but I don't see anyone...?
Snap out of it! I need to patch myself up... Maybe that chest will have something?

Open up the chest in the corner.

The gun shoots small blasts, but it looks like it'll work well against small enemies.
Entered First Cave

Walk up to the center of the shack cautiously

You walk forward cautiously, and then Toroko comes out of no where!
"Why you!!!!"

"Eeeek! Eeeek! Save me!!!!"
....
"Oh! I'm sorry. I thought you were with the Doctor. He's such a mean guy, popping up in our village capturing or killing us. Like my brother. He killed my brother."
She sees the silver locket in your inventory.
"Oh! That pendant! Sue gave that to me. I shouldn't have it anymore... King gets his ears all tangled up when he sees Sue and I getting along. You can have it."

BOOM! BOOM! BOOM!
"HUZZAH!"

"You can't hide, no no! I have the nose of a bloodhound!"

"Indeed you do..."
Another person teleports in!
"The nose, and I dare say the brain of one as well."

"Misery! I found her first!" says the big toaster.

Toroko hides behind you. "You guys are with the Doctor, aren't you?"

Misery: "So you're Sue? The Doctor has called for you."
She casts a bubble and takes Toroko away. :toroko2::toroko2::toroko2:
Misery: "Balrog, I leave the rest to you."
Misery flies away.

Balrog: "What! And here I found her first!"
He looks at you.
"So what's your deal? Are you gonna fight me with that thing?"

YES/NO

Attempt to tell Balrog that Toroko isn't Sue
Agh, I still can't talk when I want to! I have no idea what he's gonna do if I don't fight him, so...
Nod to say yes

Well, shit. Maybe I shouldn't have done that.

BATTLE STRATEGY
Try to get a shot or two in before Balrog gets too close
Once he gets two blocks away, attempt to jump over him, but only if he has already run four blocks by the time I jump. If the jump is successful (as in he doesn't jump and catch me in the air) then turn back to him and spam Polar Star until he starts running again
If he has not run four blocks yet but is still two blocks away from me, run away from him to the wall. If he backs me into a corner, test my luck and try to jump over him. If jump is successful, spam Polar Star at him until he runs at me again
If Balrog is two or less blocks away from me when I jump over him, try to get more distance between between him instead of shooting him

Repeat BATTLE STRATEGY until either Balrog is defeated or I have less than 6 health. If I have less than 6 health, try to get onto the platform by any means possible
(Sorry is that's too complicated. I want to say my strategy for bosses like you suggested, but I don't know if it'll work that well in the future. We can always change it, though.)

Sure, we can do this but break the strategy down into a few things so the boss fight goes on for a little while
You shoot Balrog over and over and avoid him most of the time.
You get him down to 27 health, but now he has you cornered on the left side.
He's about to jump towards you! :balrog:

(Alright. I'm assuming you mean react to each situation when it comes up. I agree, since doing the whole boss in one post is pretty boring in retrospect.)

Wow, this is a lot easier than I thought!
Run under Balrog when he jumps, aiming up at him and firing madly, trying to get in as many shots as possible
When Balrog lands, spam Polar Star at him, caring more about finishing the fight quickly than avoiding him

You hit Balrog a bunch of times, but you underestimated his jump height.
He crashes down on you, grabs you, and deals 2 damage before throwing you into the right wall.

"OUCH!"
Wait, me. Don't get too cocky. It's not like he's completely harmless. Still, I get the feeling he's almost beaten.
Slowly stand up and aim gun at Balrog
Shoot at Balrog rapidly when he runs at me

Fought off Balrog!
