Rock Hard is the first boss in the video game Gex: Deep Cover Gecko. He is a wrestler, and is encountered in the WWGex Wrestling stage. Gex must tail whip him to defeat him. Once defeated, he, like many other defeated enemies, turns to static and disappears.


Rock Hard is the first boss of Gex 3: Deep Cover Gecko and is required to be defeated in order to access Slappy Valley. The fight itself parodies televised American wrestling competitions, especially WWF (which is saying something as Rock Hard is a parody of The Rock and "Stone Cold" Steve Austin). During the fight, Gex dresses up as a wrestler. Gex defeated Rock Hard with tail whips, destroying him.

Appearance and inspiration


Not much is known about why Rock Hard was sent to attack Gex, but it can be assumed that, like the Tiki Brothers, Rez simply gave him the Slappy Valley Paw Card believing Rock Hard could protect it from Gex and Rez would be rid of a possible annoyance if the wrestler failed.


Invasion of the Body Slammers

Just tailwhack his feet and he'll be defeated but just watch out for his attacks. Try to attack Rock Hard when he flexes his muscles, he'll expose himself to attack by doing so (the pre-battle hint says "Muscle flexing can be hazardous to one's health").
