Watching lets plays of Cuphead, I ofter see people beat the boss (get the 'Knockout!'), but there are still things that could kill it on the screen.

Can you die after the knockout? If you die after the Knockout, does it still count as a victory or defeat?


Technically, yes. A user on the Cuphead reddit named Edgarska produced this gif showing a knockout at the exact same time as the player death. According to the user, it counted as a win.

  • You can still die, but it seems that your status on the frame the Knockout was pronounced is what is carried over. – Fredy31 Oct 13 '17 at 18:38
