Toughest combination of enemies?

Say in the Eternal Legend arena. What do you think it might be for you? Like a Laser Crab, Cat & Slidey fiend?

Oh yeah, that sucks. I hate Dynamo cause like I'm bad so it's a fight that goes terribly 99/100 but that last one goes almost flawlessly.

Say excluding bosses.

I'd vote Bast fiends, Red Ninjas and soldiers. The soldiers will easily nail you down with their shots, red ninjas jump all over the place throwing IS and trying to grab you while the Bast Fiends do the same. Another annoying combination would be Monks, Berserkers and Bast Fiends as an aerial assault is nearly negated by those damned cats.

But honestly it's still doable, just annoying.

I just got back from doing Path of the Master Ninja Phase 02 with the Wooden Sword and have to say those Galla and Gobdeck with Red Ninja were a nightmare too since even attacking a ninja could result in your recovery being grabbed by a Gobdeck for a nice 70% HP loss.

I'm going to disallow artificial difficulty increase from projectile spam. So, I'll say Great Bridge Challenge combination.

In the EL arena, Phase 4. In the game, the GBC on MN.
