Perfect Dark Zero Walkthrough and Strategy Guide >
Here we have one of those final boss battles that's fairly tough to figure out, but, once you know what you're supposed to do, it's not that hard to pull off. Before getting started, I suggest you switch out the UGL for your Superdragon at the Mission screen, as I'm a fan of the Superdragon's power and scope. Also, I suggest making the Superdragon your only weapon.
You must do your best to always keep an eye on Zhang Li. This isn't hard to do as he usually glows or sparkles, and leaves a nice light trail when he moves from platform to platform. Shoot him when you can, but realize this isn't how you're going to do most of your damage to the big guy. Watch out when he's on a platform and begins his purple glow. This means he's going to toss rather damaging light projectiles your way. Roll (LB) to avoid them.
After playing the "shoot Zhang Li while avoiding his light projectile" game for a bit, Zhang Li will land on a platform with a pillar on it. Watch as he runs to the pillar and pulls it away from the platform. While he's doing this, try to get a shot into Li. It's not vital, but doing so will break the pillar up before he tosses it your way, which makes it easier to avoid...and avoid that pillar, as you can die from being hit by it.

Once the pillar is tossed, prepare to meet Zhang Li on your platform. He'll land, stand up, and pull his Vibroblade out, creating a shield in front of him. All you have to do is back away from Zhang as he charges you. When the shield goes down, move out of the way and he'll do a little move that ends with him tripping and falling (if this doesn't happen automatically, it can be helped by a melee attack, or even a single shot). When Zhang trips, he'll drop his Vibroblade. Run over it to automatically grab it (or hit "Y" to switch out weapons, which is why I suggested making your Superdragon your only weapon), quickly switch to it, then start swinging at Zhang like a mad lady. Li's Vibroblade is his weakness, and it's what will take him down...however, not in one shot.
After a hit or two, Zhang will return to his world of platform hopping, and he'll suck the Vibroblade away from you. The only thing different now is a move he'll use to try to regenerate some of his health. You can spot it, as it starts with more of a blue glow that emits some nice energy spikes. From here, you'll see some pixelation come toward him, which forms into the bodies of several soldiers. As they surround Zhang, his energy meter will fill up. Stop it at any time by shooting Zhang. However, note, if you let it go, Zhang will release the bodies and one or two will be tossed on your platform with their weapons. This can be a good thing if you're out of ammo, but you'll pay for it in regeneration.
Repeat the attack of Zhang with his Vibroblade one more time and you should kill him. If not, keep trying until you do.
As a final note, when I played through this level for the fourth or fifth time on "Agent", Zhang didn't want to fall and drop his Vibroblade for me, so I never got the opportunity to hit him with it. However, after being hit enough times with my Superdragon, he just died. So, if you're having Vibroblade issues, just keep shooting him until he dies.
Nice work! You're done.
