BACKGROUND: Long ago, an ancient demon terrorized the land. It had a dungeon built near its palace and had three pet dragons that flew across the land: Hooktail, Gloomtail and Bonetail. Bonetail was the oldest and most fearsome. Ever since the demon was defeated by four heroes, Gloomtail and Bonetail were never seen since.

OTHER BACKGROUND INFO:
"This is the lowest floor in the Pit of 100 Trials. A zombified dragon named Bonetail used to protect this room. Yuuuuuck. Mario, I bet you're the first person to make it this far! I totally knew you'd do it! Now let's get out of this creepy place and back to the world above, OK?" - Goombella
"That's Bonetail. He's the oldest brother of Hooktail. ...So old he's just bones, in fact. Wow. Now THAT'S old. His body's Max HP is 200, his Attack is 8, and his Defense is 2. He has various breaths that might confuse us or put us to sleep. When his HP gets low, he'll recover... or reanimate, as the case may be. He's probably stronger than the last boss, seriously! Let's do this right!" - Goombella

Attack Pattern: Bonetail will either stomp on you, and attack both you and your partner with his breath. Each colour of breath has a chance of bestowing a different status effect on you. When he reaches half-health, Bonetail will occasionally heal himself 20 heart points.
Basic Strategies: Us your most powerful attacks you have! If you've gotten this far into the Pit of 100 Trials, then you know what badges will work best for you. Save your star power for Sweet Feast, and the occasional Power Lift. Bonetail is actually easier than floors 90-99 of the Pit, and hold nothing back!
Advanced Strategies: To avoid as much damage as possible, use Superguards by pressing B instead of A. If you want, you can use Koops' Shell Shield, Flurrie's Dodgy Fog and Ms. Mowz' Smooch.

The sequences before and after battling Hooktail, Gloomtail and Bonetail look almost exactly the same! The music is also identical.
