All Time Hardest Boss

Recommended Posts

I'm going through Metriod Prime on Normal. This is my first time through. And the battle with Meta-Ridley is only the second time the camera has completely failed me. Dodging his charges is asinine and tedious. If you don't figure out how to do it, he just compounds charges and wastes you. Not pleased. I finally figured out what to do and when to hit him, and the constant "dash turn lock dash turn lock" made my thumbs hurt. Finally, I lost it and died hardcore. Eventually I'll go back and win. But for now, I'm frustrated.

But so far I'm impressed. I'm nearing the conclusion and so far the camera has only let me down twice.

You know, what you could do is get the Wave Buster, dodge him until he stops charging and starts shooting, lock on, stand in front of him and blast him with it (just wait until he opens his big mouth, though). When he opens his mouth, you get the chance to shoot him in the face, making him recoil, stand up, and expose his weak spot. If you hit him with the Wave Buster there, his energy will slowly be depleted until he brings his head back down. Usually when he does this (like 99% of the time), he'll open his mouth again, leaving himself open for more punishment. Basically, all you have to do once you've hit his weak spot is keep hitting him with it. As long as you have a really healthy supply of missles (~170), you should be able to take him down with minimal effort. Hope that helps. :wink:

For those of you who have played AMerican MEgee's Alice, The Jaberwock is immpossible to beat w/o saving after each hit. Anything could go wrong. You are basicly running in this very large area

(())

-----0------

-(())--

with heals at the (()) and the 0. He flies above you with firey breath that kills you in 2 hits and crawls on the ground. He's faster than you and can breath it out for 15 secs max. Its too easy to die

Neo-Exdeath from FF5 -- only because you needed EVERYBODY ALIVE to get a good ending -- at the end, Butz was dead and, for some reason, unrevivable, and Faris was stone, dead, and a frog. Grr...

Running shoes, my friend. Running shoes. I beat him 15 levels lower than by brother, at level 45.

OK, hardest boss ever. Hmm...

Megaman 7's Dr. Wily, second form. His attacks were *this* close to being undodgeable, and a full charge shot inflicted a single damage on him, if you could hit him at all.

Honorable mentions:

Angband: Morgoth. 20,000 HP when you never really do much more than 600 damage per round. His regular attack causes small, localized earthquakes.

ADOM: Andor Drakon. Invisible, stat draining, insta-kill, summoning, you name it. Death by courruption. Praying for divine intervention, which normally heals you in that game, instead summons hordes of Greater Balors. Almost impossible.

Zande from ff3j. The first time, my battle went like this:

Round 1: He scans us.

Round 2: Meteo. We all die.

Zeromus in the japanese version of ff4. Just big and bad and tough.

Well, feeling the urge to go a bit retro, I started playing Doom II on my PC. You know what I found out? That I forgot about probably one of the single, most unfair bosses out there. The Demon on the final level :evil:

Jesus Christ is that thing is brutal. You get no clues as to just where the hell to hit it, BIG TIME monsters like Arch Viles, Revenants, Mancubus' and Pain Elementals are popping up all over the place (damn those Arch Viles for making Revenants like they were going out of style), and there's a tall elevator to ride on... that way you get killed at varying heights instead of just ground level.

To say it took me a while before I figured out what to do is would be misleading, as it took a gamefaws to figure it out after watching my guy get splattered so many times, Jackson Pollock could have used him for one of his paintings.

How do you do it? For those who have yet to play, I won't ruin the "fun".

I alwa s considered the final bosses in the Megadrive/Genisis Sonic games to be nasty little moth*******ers

But the worst one is the "finger and nose mech from sonic 3"

Maybe it is 'cause i suck but I can do the fingers with no problem then you have to run from the mech whilst hiting it's stomach and the Master emerald Beam gun and if that wasent enough you had to avoid the nose flame-thrower and at times it seemed convient that the thrower would let the flame go just as you were going for the hit.

The worst part is that when you die, you go the finger part with NO rings. I meen that's around 20 or so hits with out yourself gering hit once...

Megaman Juno from Megaman Legends always gave me a little trouble....

I hated her... SO damn much...

But I still have to say that Mecha Sonic from Sonic CD was the hardest. I tried for days to beat that little shithead... but after a while i just gave up. To this day i still havent beaten him. It was just the stupid, "try to beat the boss with NO RINGS" thing.

Sephiroth in Kingdom Hearts. Jesus christ..

i second that!

lvl 90 and i can still barely hurt him

Good lord dude. I killed him at 85. And I was taking away fairly large chunks of his HP's per hit (A couple pixels a hit, about a fifth of a HP bar per full combo). Are you sure you're not being fooled by his 6 HP bars? I know he has two purple HP bars layered on top of each other, so until you run the first of those down it doesn't look like you're doing any damage to him. Try fighting him again and just stick with it, keep hitting him.

Of course, having the Ultima Weapon was probably a large factor in my victory, so maybe you should go for that too if you don't already have it.

Ghouls & Ghosts... one boss that is so cheap it's not funny. The BIG fly that your have to fight before you enter the chamber and battle Loki... Beelzebub(sp).

They should have made this little putz the final boss, as Loki is a cakewalk compared to Beelzebub. This huge fly foirms from dozens of little flies, then begins to float about the room for a short time spitting green larva eggs that spin end over end. Then, it changes back into the little flies... and God help you from there.

I've watch Aurther get reduced to pile of bones so many times on this part, I could scream. Those little flies go anywhere... randomly. There's no pattern to avoid, and if you're on the lowest part of the floor and these flies stream across the screen at you, there's a 90% chance you're getting hit... twice. You can't avoid it as the stream is too long to jump over and a wall stops you from running any further. All you can do is get hit.

This part just hands you your ass so readily...

Right now, I'm going through FF7 again, and this time I'm building up my materia (I have 2 mimes and 2 final attacks now =D) As soon as I get everyone up to level 99, I'm gonna go and kick some major Weapon butt! (And, I'm also gonna see what each of the characters has for their final stats so that I know which characters will make up the best team, and also so I know which characters are best to use in subsequent playings of the game.)

So far, I haven't been able to beat Emerald or Ruby Weapon in FF7, so they are my two all time hardest bosses.

When I saw the topic for this, the first thought that immediately came to my head was Culex from Mario RPG. 8O

And then I remembered that I faced him when I was approximately level 13. :lol::lol::lol:

Didn't go well for me...

Anyways...I'm the boss of Battlefield 1942, and I'm more or less unbeatable. ( :P ) Does that count? 8):wink:

also the dracula in castlevania sotn was way to easy i mean all you have to do was get two crissagrims and have a good level. i had him dead in abotu a minute.

I didn't think two Crissaegrims would make it any quicker, I just kept hitting the button, dodging from left to right from his hands.. pretty quick death.

And as far as "Hardest boss" goes I'd have to saaaay...

Lumina - Brave Fencer Musashi.. It took me forever to figure it out.. I guess it wasn't hard after I did though.

Nah... Blood Cape and the Cross and you're set. Blood cape gives you basically infinate hearts. Just keep crossin' him and healing when your HPs get low.

Regarding Brave Fencer Musashi... gotta love Misahsi's comments on the last boss: "What a dumb looking wizard"

Yeah. I finally did it. But now Meta-Ridley is killing me. Over and over.... I've figured it out, I just have to survive the charges long enough to end him.

First Omega Pirate now Meta Ridley?

Omega Pirate was kind of hard... but super missles rape the shit out of him

as For Meta Ridley.. i had no problem.. then again i also had 1599 health when i fought him.... but still.. i only lost about 200 not even

Well, I finally did it. I figured out how far away you have to stand to keep him from charging. Then I took out the Metriod Prime rather quickly... and let's say that the ending was less than stellar. But the game was amazing. Kind of like every other Metroid.

As for a hard boss... you're all going to laugh, but Bowser at the end of Mario 3 is the only time a Mario boss has actually given me grief EVERY SINGLE TIME. I always end up beating him, but it takes me quite a few tries.

What about the original Metal Gear for the NES?

At the age of 6 - 10 I don't think small children understand that the commander in Metal Gear would follow you into a different room and when in that room that is the only time you can hurt him.. also that game to my knowledge didn't have a health meter for the bosses.

As for the Metal Gear itself you had to have around 300 missles to kill it because of those doors opening and closing (the doors of course when closed would cause your missle to blow up)

Don't know if anyone's mentioned this one (sorry, but the 44 page count is kinda turning me off to searching the entire thread), but Star Ocean 2 had the biggest b*tch of a boss I've ever seen. It only appeared when you played the song of evil, and it was the "dark" version of the end boss of the Cave of Trials...if I remember correctly, that is. I used GameShark to power up my characters, so I went into the battle thinking "piece of cake" and came out of the battle thinking "God, I hope I saved recently." The kicker was that there were only about 7 seconds gone by between those two statements. Mopped the floor with me. An acquaintance of mine who has actually beaten this boss said it was one of those "Hit...RUNRUNRUNRUNRUNRUNRUNRUNRUNRUN...hitRUNRUNRUNRUNRUNRUNRUNRUNRUN...hit againQUICKRUNRUNRUNRUNRUNRUNRUN!" kinds of battles and it took him about 15 minutes straight (real-time battles where things can happen pretty quickly) to finally beat it. Thank Goddess for bunny shoes and Mirror Slice.

Hardest boss I've actually beaten? Real Eve at the top of the Chrysler Building in Parasite Eve 1. Took me about 20 tries, she was such a pain in the ass. Ultimate Being was nothing, NOTHING, compared to that.

By the way, with regard to impossible bosses, there is one that I know of, but it's a trick. Any who have played Phantasy Star IV and acquired the Megid technique know what I'm talking about. Chaz fights the Anger Tower guardian...ALONE...and it can only do one thing-use Megid on him for about 250 damage each time. I tried everything against it-Rayblade, Nathu, Crosscut, but between healing and attacking there was no way I stood a chance. I'd like to try hacking a save state on a ROM and perhaps see if it's even possible to beat him with normally-impossible stats. Would definitely be interesting.
