"*...that most non-final bosses in the first game, including Toadonpa, Storm Lizard, and Tempest Lizard, are susceptible to status conditions such as instant death, Death Curse, and Deadly Poison, but none of the bosses in the second game are?"
Not true; you are forgetting the warriors fought in Trial Road. I just completed Trial Road, and they just fell asleep after Sheba casted sleep on them. This piece of trivia is therefore incorrect. --184.108.40.206 15:19, 25 June 2012 (CDT)
