Mastered!! The nostalgia of the days when I was kid playing this for the first time...these achievements brought those great memories back. Getting those last two achievements and mastering this game felt like I beat it again for the first time.

Mastered! My first of many! This was a great set, the no damage boss achievements definitely required some work, it was a nice challenge and super fun to try! (Blind was the hardest by a good margin)... I do wish there was more to it though (maybe a bonus set), this set is one of those you can master by just playing through the game once, and there's a lot more to the game in terms of secrets or challenges (as well as a lot of powerful glitches that open up a lot of possibilities) that didn't get explored by the achievements.

I submitted a Bonus set with some hard achievements and easter egg achievements that JAM will be reviewing and publishing since I'm retired.

Shouldn’t a lot of these be marked with (M) as they’re no harm bosses? Or something I’m not remembering?

@Kamikoopa right now marking missable as [m] is optional and decided by the developers whether they want it to be included with their achievement set or not but you are correct yes, all damageless bosses aside from Ganon are missable.
