Macba (or Makuba) is a recurring boss from Metal Slug: 1st Mission and Metal Slug: 2nd Mission.

Character Information

He's a master at hand-to-hand combat clad in special armor. A terrifying assassin who can conceal himself completely to approach his target, he is known to pounce on his prey like a wild animal.

Boss Gameplay

Macba fights on an enclosed room with platforms. Macba attacks by tossing three knives at the character. The knives act as boomerangs, eventually travelling back to Macba. Whenever he jumps from platform to platform, he sticks his knives out in front of him to protect himself from the player's attacks.

Every fight starts with Macba either licking his knives or growling at the player, but the player is able to move at any time. Macba is invulnerable during his introduction only in Metal Slug 1st Mission, so the player can use this advantage in Metal Slug: 2nd Mission to take some shots at him (even taking him out before he does anything).

Arenas

Trivia

  • Tyra Elson's description in Metal Slug's 10th anniversary website is a carbon copy of Macba's (including referring Tyra as a "he").
