All Time Hardest Boss

Recommended Posts

Earler, some were taking about the metroid prime. I am a very thorough gamer, and would like to think I am pariculaly skilled, and I did not find the metroid boss battles to be all that hard. I agree that they are amoung the funnest, best done bosses ever, however. Just as Prime stands out amoung games partially because of the visors and cannons still being useful throughout the game, the bosses stand out as truely testing a variety of skills. All have patterens, and most become harder a time goes on (old school, and very fun, and they made it work.), but they still involve you using your variety of techniques more than almost any other first-person game I can think of. Against the Metroid Prime, for example, you obvoisly need to jump and dodge, but in the first stage you need to keep switching weapons, and plenty of incentive is provided for you to use your combos, and even the morphing ball is neeed to dodge its body slam. In the seond phase, your visors get plenty of work, and possibly your beams (personally, I usually power bomb or phazon beam the fission metroids). Super Metroid's ending (and I don't just mean the credits - I mean everything after you get the space jump) was one of the most emotionally drawing I have ever seen. Prime's may not be as much, but the idea of samus getting an ultra-powerful beam is used here well. Now, you need to actually do something to get it (it's not automatic) and once you do it does not gurantee that you will win, you need to get it more than once. So, you still get all the excitement and sense of accomplishment you get from such a great-looking, sexy beam, plus you need to keep on your toes. A great idea.

Mind if I get even more off-topic to graphics? Am I the only one here who thinks the graphics in the fial battle of metroid prime to be some of the best ever? The environment is the perfect, disgusting (that is a GOOD thing), well-textured place for such a fight, and the metroid prime is modelled well in both forms and has nifty looking attacks. In the second phase, the visuals may be even better. Prime looks neat in all visors, and in your combat visor, you may agree with me the metroid prime may very well be the neatest, nifftiest transparency ever!!!! The luminesence and lighting effects in this game are great as well, and the metroid prime's body and attacks - not to mention the utterly orgasmic-looking phazon beam - are also some of the best lighting I have ever seen.

The last boss of the first disc on Legend of Dragoon. I dont care what anyone says. That Emeperor -jackass- totally destroyed me. And I fought him for over fourty five minutes. Yea, maybe I suck at Legend of Dragoon, but he was hard as hell. He killed -everyone- on my team (Rose, Lavitz, and Dart) except Dart. And by the end of the battle, Dart had 3 hitpoints left. No healing items. No reviving items. I was -fuxored-. But I won. But thats not the point. He was hard as hell.

-Doug, who's going to go cry now.

If I remember correctly, I beat him with Dart with 6 HP as my sole survivor. HAHAHA! I'm better than you!!!!!!!!

I'm not reading through all these pages (I never took the time to check out this thread), so this might've been mentioned already. But the Chrisophinx in Chrono Cross, THAT FUCKING BITCH! It's a secret boss, guides say he has 13,000 HP, but that's total bullshit :evil: I was fighting him for like 5 hours, fell asleep WHILE FIGHTING HIM, then tried for about 1-2 hours after I woke up.. he wouldn't go down.. Still haven't beaten him :evil:

not that it really matters in this thread but one of the easiest FINAL bosses ive ever faced (without cheating) is megaman juno in megaman 64. :?

all i do is hold the z trigger, run around in circle, shoot at him, and jump over his attacks. it may look unskilled, but it's easier and not a cheat.

I've seen these kinds of threads so many times.

Anyway, the hardest boss I've ever faced ...

That DAMN OCTOROK MINIBOSS IN THE JABU JABU THINGY IN ZELDA 64. First time I faced that little b*tch, I died. And the second through tenth times were pretty much a repeat. Now that I've long since beaten the game, he's easy, since I know what to do and stuff. But he had me in a corner for quite a while. Maybe he wasn't hardest, though...

[sarcasm]There was always that tree in Kirby.[/sarcasm]

I submit any final boss from SaGa Frontier and the Egg from SaGa Frontier II. I swear, they made those things CRAZILY hard to beat. The only final boss from SaGa Frontier I actually managed to beat was Genocide Heart, and THAT was an accomplishment. Doubt I'll ever beat Egg, though. Good freaking grief...

SA-X is fun to toy with, the first time you actually have to get chased by her. Keep making her spin back and walk to the pillar youre hiding behind by firing consistently. Im sure X have feelings of frustration.

But then she totally kicked my ass. I guess X have feelings of vengance as well.

Damn SA-X. Always ruining my flower bed. I'll get the hose ready next time.

SA-X is kinda hard on Fusion. She just down right scares me. The scary music comes on, and then SA-X comes and chases, shoots, kills. I beat the game though. The last boss was not very hard, died on him once. Fighting SA-X was not very pleasent, but when she turned into the monster thingy it was simple, of course the X virus then fought me with the shooting plasma beam and I died on the Friggin' X. It pissed me off.

Great Game though.

Personally, I'm currently stuck on the part in Sector 2(?), TRO, where you have to actually run from her. Well, this is the second time you have to run, the first time was with the power bomb ... or if you were stupid enough to reveal yourself when she walked over that tunnel ... but it's really tough. She's gone from "Scary clone who walks by eerily" to "Psycho B*tch".

The SA-X's X core beat you? :lol:

Use screw attack and it'll drop all these x Parasites on you. I had almost full energy after doing that.

I think the hardest boss ever is the final boss from Legend of Dragoon. You have to beat all four of its forms (if I remember correctly) and it keeps getting stronger. The fight takes over a hour even if you are doing well! There is nowhere that you can stock up potions or anything before you fight it and eventually it starts just eating your characters, then spitting them out at another character, which hurts a lot. It usually eats your healer, too. Damn it!! I never finished the game.

Eh, he's not that tough if you give Miranda that ring that regens 10MP a round. Free all heal spell every other round! If I had to name a toughest boss, it would have to be Emerald Weapon. Yeah, there's a way to beat it, but it mostly relies on your luck. Blow that!

Hardest part I can remeber for a boss would be right at the end with Sonic and Knuckles running after Robotnik and trying to outrun the falling platforms because I hate it when you bounce off him and when you get the last hit in you find that you die in the pit of no retrun.

I HATE THAT >_<

I kept getting so tensed that anyone who bumped me made me jump and all which scares the S*** out of me...

I literly jump out of my seat sometimes while playing DooM also...

Oh yeah, I almost forgot:

The last boss of SaGa Frontier 2. I mean, geez, the rest of the game was a breeze and then all of the sudden you have this really tough last boss.

Also, this isn't a boss but the Battle of South Moundtop was INSANE.

You are SO right! The egg was an insane boss battle. And the battle of south moundtop. A pain in the ass

I have to make my own little hard boss battle up here. Anybody remember Indalecio...the last boss on Star ocean 2-the second story. Most of the bosses in the tower were tough but damn. That was tough unless you really really prepared! alright ill think of more bosses :twisted:

wow, i thought this thread had died, but since it's still alive and kicking, i'll throw in my 2 cents:

i'm having a helluva time with kingdom hearts. i think i read somewhere on these forums that the more rpgs you play, the more your reflexes turn to mush since all you have to do is select battle commands. so me and my mushy reflexes are finding kingdom hearts kinda difficult. it took me about 20 tries to beat ursula in that second form. and i won't even go into what a pain in the ass sephiroth is. anyway, my 2 cents has been thrown and i'll shut up now.

The unlimited version of Indelcio from StarOcean the second story is hands down the most difficult boss of all time.

He moves 3 times as fast your characters, can cast spells while moving, and most of those spells are 1 hit kills to everyone in the party.

I have to say, that I think the worst Boss of all time has to be Dr. Willard in Tomb Raider III. Not only is it rather intimidating to have to face a giant, otherworldly, spider-thing--but he's invincible, too! You have to run all over the damn place picking things up while avoiding his instantly-fatal acid spray and not getting trampled. Not to mention the pools of acid surrounding his happy little bubble. Damn bug.

Dude you know i agree. I mean hes the last boss, does all this crazy shit and has like a million freaking hit points. But I have to bring up the secret dungeon on Star ocean 2. Remember the last boss in there :D oh and i have another, the last boss in Valkyrie Profiles dungeon. :twisted: It was maniacally evil!
