Are Witch Bomber and Possessor Herd not bosses? They don't appear with any of the others."We're werewolves, not swearwolves." (KrytenKoro) 21:45, 28 May 2015 (UTC)

They are world bosses but not Raid Bosses. Maybe it's time for a page on this topic, but the mechanics are constantly changing so I avoided to write one until now. Anyway, Raid Bosses are one of the multiplayer components of the game, basically your team and you are defending Daybreak Town a whole day against a Heartless invader which, when defeated, is replaced by another leveled up one (in certain cases a Subspecies) after a short break. Essentially these Heartless don't appear in the "normal" singleplayer part and behave differently stats-wise, that's why I put them in a separate table. --ShardofTruth 09:02, 29 May 2015 (UTC)
So, it's vaguely thematically similar to the Coliseum or Mirage Arena?
In that case, are Possessor Herd and Witch Bomber the only "true" Heartless bosses in the game?"We're werewolves, not swearwolves." (KrytenKoro) 13:45, 29 May 2015 (UTC)
That's a great comparison. The question if these two are the only Heartless bosses is a bit difficult to answer since the game itself doesn't name them like this. The enemies that have to be defeated to move forward in the story are marked with a little book icon that has "story" written on it. These enemies can range from a simple Yellow Opera to an Invisible and will always feature the "Destiny's Force" battle theme. So I'm not sure what to make of it but since the Witch Bomber and the Possessor Herd are unique (they won't reappear as regular enemies) I put them in the Heartless Boss template.
