Mecha Develon Intro

Mecha Develon is the main antagonist of Bubble Bobble Double. He attacks Rainbow Star, sending Bub and Bob through a vortex into a mysterious dimension in order to try and ensure his conquest goes unopposed. Bub travels through the mysterious realm, defeating the monsters he encounters along the way. Eventually, Bub makes his way to where Mecha Develon resides, and facing off with the being.

Mecha Develon is encountered as the final boss of the game, and attacks by trying to hit Bub with his claws. The player must trap the Zen-chans that spawn during the fight in bubbles and fling them at Mecha Develon's claws to keep them at bay. Mecha Develon will occasionally open his mouth to attempt to suck Bub towards him, when this happens, the player must fling the bubbled Zen-chans at Mecha Develon's exposed mouth, which will damage him.

Mecha Develon Ending

After taking enough damage, Mecha Develon will fall back briefly, calling in Mechanic Zen-chan, who sends Monstas out to attack Bub. Afterwards, Mecha Develon will reappear and continue to attack, now with a new attack utilizing the giant laser cannon inside of his mouth. While Mecha Develon is charging up this attack, the player must fling bubbled Zen-chans at his head to push it over towards either side of the screen, and if Mecha Develon's head is far enough over, he will use the laser and inadvertently fire on one of his claws, which will permanently disable it for the rest of the fight. Afterwards, Mecha Develon continues to attack with his remaining claw and the vaccuum attack until he is defeated.

After Bub defeats Mecha Develon, he reunites with Bob, who has found the exit from the mysterious dimension, and the two return home, having saved the world once again.

In-game, Mecha Develon is referred to as both Mecha Devilin and Mecha Devilun.
