I'd hate to say it because it ruins the surprise but

she does win. I'm trying to balance story and parody, and losing the first boss seems more parody than the story I'm trying to write will permit. Plus, it establishes Gale as a rival to return later, as if the full name, custom armor and personality haven't already given it away.

Also in case you guys haven't looked closely enough, Gale ties his long hair with a ribbon. Before I knew the trope, I had made him the pretty white haired antagonist.
