In my project, there is a late-game dungeon that culminates with a boss battle against four "Shadows" of the four party members.

The idea is that the Shadows would scale with the player character, and would use spells & skills those characters have access to.

I considered making them generalized, with skills the player may not necessarily have yet. This would be far simpler in terms of design and implementation, however, I still think it would be way more interesting if these bosses were exact copies of your party members.

The thing is, doing something like this is very extensive, and I'm not entirely sure where to start implementing something like this. If anyone has any suggestions as to how to do this, I'd be very appreciative.

Maybe when the characters learn a new skill, turn on a switch. Then, have all the possible skills the characters can learn in the enemy AI thing, and have conditions for them to be useable if the corresponding switch is on

you'll have to make a copy of your characters, as enemies.
it could be coded and made on the fly, but the copy is the most stable way.

Something something.
Dev be like: "I'll make the character goes amnesia so I could explain the world and the lore better and immersive to the players"
Whoever decided that the 5th area of Xenoblade 3 had to be THAT big and be explored in the manner it does needs to be shot. My OCD cannot leave a tiny shard of the map hidden and those controls can go right on and f*** themselves. -.-
