Note about Juggernaut (Wolverine Stage 2):
Juggernaut starts with 24 health, dropping anvils on him deals anywhere from 1-4 hp in damage.
However, Juggernaut will remain at 2hp until the very last pillar before the giant toy bin.

Dropping half to two thirds amount of anvils on him will ensure victory. Slash him at the last pillar
and he will be defeated. Slashing him before this point deals no damage and only serves to slow him down.

Note About Rhino (Spider-Man Stage 2):
Rhino can only be hurt by swinging into him, it will take six or so hits to defeat him.
