You can ask Ghegs why.

After seeing the Megadrive replays, I'm wondering if that alternate boss option even exists in that version, simply because Ultimate Tiger, Strike Mantis, and Hunter Snail sound like just such composite bosses. In other words, the Megadrive version "simplifies" matters by letting you take on the composites while inside Danger Seed, without having to let bosses escape.

So basically, Triple Eye, Roller Snail, and Shark Mouth need to be allowed to escape (although that leaves the question of where Ultimate Tiger's snout is coming from, since it looks like Multi Squid's). Maybe these composites award more points than the two relevant normal bosses combined?

Edit: And now, actually getting to see the video, I see that in the arcade, it's only the post-tube bosses you can do this with. Might be worth seeing which is worth the most boss points--Multi-Squid/Shark-Mouth/Twin-Claw, Multi-Squid/Monster-Mouth, Monster-Head/Twin-Claw, or Ultimate-Tiger. Although I don't see any plays that show Twin-Claw being felled, I'll guess that it's worth 80,000, on top of the usual 60,000 for landing the killing blow on an orbit boss. Long story short: The best point payout for bosses appears to be to allow Multi-Squid to escape, but not Monster-Head, and then go on to bring down Twin-Claw. (Popcorn enemy payout may be a different story...)

Awesome discovery. I still wonder how they got all those extra points in the gamest score.

Have you seen this video, guys?

It’s 52,000 points short of world record (would be only 32,000 short with full health after 4th & 8th stage)

Mars -> Saturn -> Neptune route, no bombs used, so I guess that extra 32k is just some more popcorn and boss milking. Fast sections seem to be pretty much optimized.
