I guess this is also kinda my informal welcome to the community. I was pulling an all-nighter last night to study for a final and do practice tests. I would take intermittent breaks and do a run so I didn't burn myself out. On one of these runs I just entirely whiffed the last jump during the DwtM cut scene skip so going into the mafia boss fight i wasn't taking it too seriously. So i started with the normal hit for his first spin charge cycle (I don't know all the exact community names for things) he then normally went into a sandbag cycle. When he was jumping back on stage I mistakenly jump dashed towards him. I passed under him just missing his character model. When he landed he paused for a second then went straight into his phase change animation and proceeded to phase 2. I was a little surprised so i finished out the fight in the usual method finishing in a quick kill. I stopped the run and started replaying DwtM. I was able to get the same results multiple times. The setup being dashing within about half of a hat beneath him about a single jump above the stage (I know these are janky measurement descriptions) as he is reentering after a sandbag cycle. I am fully aware that it could have been a weird occurrence like somehow being localized to that specific save file. I couldn't repeat it earlier today when i got home but to be fair my brain was so fried from lack of sleep and mental exhaustion at that point i could hardly perform anything. Just thought I'd share with the community as a whole and that maybe those of y'all who are more skilled than I am and with more knowledge of how the game works could use this to figure out if there is something of value there. Even if this never leads to anything i hope to lend somehow to the legacy of this fantastic speed game going forward.
