The Light is an unused mini-boss in Cuphead that would have been encountered in the All Bets Are Off! level. The Light can only be encountered in debug mode. The reason that the boss does not look completed is that it was a simple placeholder drawing.


Like the scrapped boss Card, the Light's design seems misleading to the game's overall style. It appears to be a green frog or lizard wearing a black hat. It has six light rays coming out of its body, and has two Jareeds next to it. He is most likely male, as he wears a top hat and has short to no eyelashes.


There are six blue light beams rotating around the platforms. Three of the lights will turn yellow, red and then back to blue. Red lights will damage the player(s) if they are not avoided. They will get progressively faster throughout the fight. Blue and yellow lights will not do any damage to the player or players when touched. For added difficulty, there are two Jareeds on the platforms that also deal contact damage.

The player would move around the platforms dodging the Jareeds and light rays, while shooting at the boss to defeat it.

This mini-boss does not have a knockout animation. Once it is defeated it will stay as it was in battle.



  • This mini-boss was most likely scrapped due to either it being a placeholder drawing or because the game developers did not have enough time to finish the battle.
  • The Light may reference either light shows performed in casinos or the neon casino night signs.
