(Sega AM1's universe)
Boss mode is a game mode used in The House of the Dead 2 and The House of the Dead 2 & 3 Return. This mode is specifically for killing every boss in the game in their respective scenarios. As played in Arcade Mode, each boss must be defeated in order (starting with Judgment) before moving onto the next.
After the defeat of Magician, two options will appear: the ability to battle Emperor, the final boss of the game, and "Fight All". The latter option gives the player(s) the choice of fighting all the bosses in a single game with only five lives each.
Like Training Mode, there are five levels of difficulty for each boss. When each boss is completed once, a red star will appear. This can max up to five when all modes of difficulty have been successfully completed.
