You're in heap big trouble!
~ Dark Horse

Dark Horse is the third boss from Sunset Riders.


Dark Horse earned his name by pillaging towns while riding his horse. Due to his crimes, a bounty of $30,000 was placed onto him.


Bounty hunters Steve, Billy, Bob and Cormano learn that Dark Horse is terrorizing a town. They locate the town and confront Dark Horse. He fights them from his horse which is protected by metal plating. They are forced to shoot Dark Horse, himself, and manage to defeat him. The horse leaves while carrying it's dead rider. A moment later, a dancer falls out from a nearby saloon. The bounty hunters enter the building, triggering the next battle.


Dark Horse is very different from most of the other bosses:

  • He is the only one to ride an animal or to be accompanied by one.
  • He is one of the few bosses to have a specific weak point whereas most bosses are entirely vulnerable.
