Rayman 1

The first encounter with Mr Sax

Allegro Presto

Mr Sax is first encountered in Allegro Presto. At the end of this level, Rayman finds that the vicious wrong notes which have been plaguing him throughout Band Land seem to come from Mr Sax. When the two first meet, Mr Sax blows another wrong note at Rayman, then turns and flees.

Mr Sax's Hullaballoo

The two confront each other again in Mr Sax's Hullaballoo, where the boss starts blowing wrong notes again, which can be punched back to hurt him. Then, he starts chasing Rayman, who can also punch the static wrong notes that stand in his way. This way, he can take take away up to 9 of his 12 life points, making the final battle much easier.

Mr Sax's main attacks consist in blowing wrong notes of different kinds at Rayman. The first type looks exactly like sliding wrong notes, except that one hit is enough to throw them back to the sender. He can blow three of them at a time.

The second type of wrong note are round notes which explode in the air and free eight tiny invincible wrong notes in the shape of the first type. Mr Sax can blow two of them at the same time, making it much harder to dodge the tiny notes.

The third type follow a curved trajectory and explode on the ground. They're the same shape as the second type.

Mr Sax's attacks also include stomping on Rayman, though he is quite easy to dodge. Once beaten, he starts dancing, and appears to be no longer hostile.
