The first of the Fiendish Five that you will face, Sir Raleigh is more of a pushover than he may appear. He will bloat up and then attempt to squash you. There are four stages to the fight.
1st Stage: He will bloat and attempt to fall upon you and/or the platform you are on. The main thing to concentrate on is that he will not be able to take up the entire platform and he falls rather slow, so as long as you wait until he's in the air to move, you could do this on just one platform. Wait until he jumps a few times and then deflates, then walk up and whack him.
2nd Stage: He will drop all of the other platforms than the one you are on, then repeat what he tried to do in the first stage. Just out-maneuver him and then whack him to quickly complete the stage.
3rd Stage: All of the other platforms will return, but this time, they will time themselves before they will sink. The time for it is usually about two of Raleigh's jumps, so if you pace yourself, you can move from one platform to another rather slow. After a bit, he will deflate and will open up for another attack.
4th Stage: A repeat of the second stage with a twist. Instead of him jumping after you, he will now do a roundabout, twirling around with his tongue sticking out. Just hop over his tongue and when he deflates, whack him to finish the fight and obtain the first of five bulk pieces to the Thievius Raccoonus.
