Banjo-Tooie - A very weird stuff about Old King Coal

Today i have played Banjo-Tooie on my Nintendo 64 and i have played all bosses via replay machine. I have noticed that during battle with Old King Coal there is a timer with 150 seconds. Most strange is that there isn't timer during battle with other bosses.

There's a timer because if you spend too long in the heat of the boiler room you die.

No, there's bubbles for that (at least in the original fight there is). The timer IS weird. Can't say I've ever noticed it though.

I thought about it too but it isn't solution - if you will spend too much time in boiler room you will lost all air bubles. Timer isn't needed. Also Old King Coal is one of much easiest bosses so what's reason to give you 150 seconds to beat him?

It could have been left over from an earlier point in BT's development. It doesn't hurt that it's there... much easier to leave it alone than to try and remove it.

I'm not going to speculate that is used for something. It's just pretty weird that i have played Banjo-Tooie milion times and i never noticed it before

Yep i know that after 150 seconds the bolier became fully open. But it's pretty weird to has 150 seconds because:

A - Old King Coal is easiest boss in game,
B - you can die before that "time is left" because lack of bubbles,

A- The timer is there to make the battle more difficult, and it STILL is the easiest boss in the game, even with the timer.
B- Yes, this is the intention of every boss: they want to kill you. Shocking news, I know

I've never understood the timer, mainly because that boss takes the shortest time to beat. The timer simply isn't necessary. And I've never understood the oxygen bubbles on the side. It goes down a little bit, and then it refreshes, and does it over again. Is it even possible to die of oxygen loss in that boss battle?

Coal = Fossil Fuel = gasoline = bad air = you have bubbles...
Timer is weird. What happens when timer runs out? You just die randomly?
