All Time Hardest Boss

Recommended Posts

I know this has been said already, but I have been playing Prime 1 again on hard mode and the only thing that has given me a lick of trouble is Ridley. It is insane how the difficulty jumped from each boss being easy to "OMG RIDLEY STOP FUCKING ME UP". I always expect some crazy rape scene to occur after each time I die from the sheer beatings I receive from the guy. He defeats me that hard.

Don't get me wrong, the guy is a blast to fight, but man is he a pain. Prime and the rest of the bosses in the game are has hard as tearing a piece of paper when compared to him.

Seriously, I second that. I don't think I've gotten back to Ridley as of yet... Correction, I don't even think I've gotten back to hard mode in general.

But anyway, Kefka made me curse for a few weeks before I spent a whole week devising some ass-backward plan that actually worked. I don't remember what it was exactly, but I barely beat him. Sabin (the fists of god) was the only one left standing. My team made entirely no sense, but I beat that son-of-a-bitch.

Dark Force from Phantasy Star 2 made me shed a tear in preventing myself from shredding my Genesis entirely.

Death and Dracula from the original Castlevania... Why was it configured for them to fight for their lives? Still, to this very day, that game is the only one out of that series that I haven't beaten... *sigh* :cry:

I'll tell you a hard fucking boss. Crazy Hand and Master Hand on very hard mode to top off classic. Each at 360%. Retarded. Just retarded.

.......RETARDED!

I'm almost certain that without a walkthough... that game is pushing impossible. Albeit I was around 12 years old when I tried it for the last time... It still makes me angry to think about. I'll pick it up again one day, never.

I'm in the same boat, never beat 2. I own and have beaten 1, 3-5 though!

Death IS a real pain in the ass in 1. I'd like to see how easily the people who do speed runs can beat it without lagging him to death.... death.. to death... err... Anyway, probably not very.

I don't know if you can really consider this a boss, but the song Jumping Jack Flash from EBA must have taken me somewhere around 100 tries to beat on the most difficult setting. Took forever.

<3 my many years experience of playing bemani games, haha. They really helped out a lot.

Despite being a pain, Death is more often then not fun to fight. From the first castlevania to Portait of Ruin, I've almost always looked forward to fighting him. Heck when he double teams WITH Dracula in PoR it was Twice the fun especially when they started to feel like a nasty bastard with nearly instant death attacks.

Now if they would only up the deadlyness of Dracula and Death...

You can beat him. It took a hell of a lot of reloading saved states and mentally kicking myself for not just giving up, but he doesn't always do the sneeze attack early enough to save himself.

Good Lord how long ago did I post that?

ITS CUTMAN!

He's a little android man, born without a heart! Without that voice of reason.. he'll CUT YOU APART. :(

MORE LIEK CUNTMAN AMIRITE

Seriously tho. G Akiha from Melty Blood is a serious pain in the ass. She blocks EVERYTHING you throw at her and every attack of hers causes near-instant death.

For me, getting the good ending to "Clash at Demonhead" (NES) is nigh impossible, but it's a puzzle and not a boss that makes it that way.

As far as a physical 'boss' goes, I would have to say that the final boss of Double Dragon 3 is at the top of my list -- she kills me almost every time. Other notables include Little Ninja Brothers (yay Culture Brain!), and the optional endboss in Demon's Crest for SNES

What, you don't like fighting two already boss-like in their own right mummies before fighting really hard sorceress woman?

Wait a minute, there are actual human beings that have beaten that game...?

A Time Attack? Not that I know of.

As for the topic at hand, I don't know if it qualifies as really a hard boss, but for the life of me I cannot beat the last boss in Sigma Star Saga. For some reason no matter how many times I shoot the bastard he eventually heals himself for an unknown amount of damage (I assume all of it).

Coop...anybody...help!

Maybe I'm just weird, but Jackle from NiGHTS made me cry.

Several times.

It was worse that he'd just laugh at me constantly, and the closer I got to him, the more chance I'd be hit by a card.

I'll type this in tiny, pale text so that no one else reads it unless they want to...

To beat the final boss, try these tips...

- Don't get hit. Sometimes when your ship get hit, he heals himself.

- Stay above his brow line. His eye laser is deadly, so stay level with his forehead.

- Stay away from the holes in the background. Tentacles come out and grab you, holding you in place. This makes you an easy target, so try and stay in the large gap between the left and center hole columns.

- When the screen shakes, a tentacle is about to come either shooting up or down through the screen. The moment the screen shakes, move up close to the boss' forehead. If you stay very close to it, all three tentacles will miss you. Just be sure to get back when the tentacles retract, or you'll get rammed by the head.

- If you have them, use this set up for your weapons...

Blue- 23

Red- 06

Yellow- 06

This gives you fast firing orbs that circle your ship. It makes the boss fights easier.

- Don't use weapon "B". When I use it, the boss heals himself all the time. So try sticking to weapon "A".

Hope that helps, Warmech.

Well son of a bitch, that worked like a charm.

I think the problem was using 'A' instead of 'B' because that's what I was always doing and he would just randomly heal himself. Excellent!

Anyone ever played a game called "DJ Boy" for the Genesis?

...Okay, there's this granny that appears in two, if not three levels. No patterns or anything out of the ordinary, she just violates your space with poorly made combos. Just straight owns you for free. What made this boss so ungodly annoying was for each one of your hits, she smacked you at least three times.

Don't get me wrong, the granny is beatable, but it takes too much work.:evil:

After playing Ninja Gaiden (the original one) again, I have to say that the bosses in this game (except the first two) have high factors of pissingmeoffedness.

However, the one enemy I cannot stand is the eagle.

It takes 3 bars of life on contact (as opposed to a pretty small 1 bar taken by a ROCKET LAUNCHER).

It moves fast.

It has the second smallest surface of the game (the smallest being the slightly less annoying bats)

And since the game is buggy, they can spawn sporadicly for no reason after you killed them. (Apparently, they are generated as you step on a specific tile column and if you do not move from the trigger, the game assumes that since you killed the eagle, it never was generated.)

So yeah, if you are afraid of ninjas, invest in eagles. They will defend your base better than twin hopping statues that spit out brain looking balls of gas.

(In fact, I am convinced that 15 eagles would be harder to beat than the last boss of the game.)

Especially on the next-to-last level. While you're trying to make your way up the temple area they just fly out of nowhere and knock your ass back, sometimes off into instant death.

Luckily I rock at this game.

I never had the appourunity to play the original Ninja Gaiden, since... well, I suck at the XBox version, so I'm not very far through it, and have not been able to aquire the original games in it yet.

It's not a boss, but the part that has me hung up right now is that damned boulder in the underground part beneath the cathedral. Like I said, I suck at this game.
