All Time Hardest Boss

X or Zero?

As X, use Rising flame during the first form just as Sigma appears, if timed right he will not get an attack off, do this two times, when he disappears, hightail it to the main top of whichever wall is closer, and stay there until he follows through with his screen slash, repeat until form two. In this form, Sigma throws his scythe in a half circle of whichever direction he's facing, run behind him and blast him, then jump on the wall for the next attack, he will throw his scythe whever you are, which is a bad thing if you're on the floor, as the attack is near impossible to dodge. If it sticks in the wall, however, you can shoot him while dashing to the wall behind where he jumps and fires those dual lasers from his eyes, blast him after the laser stops and prepare to repeat the process, once you learn the patterns and timing, you should take no damage for the first two rounds, therefore saving your energy tanks. Form three has five attack styles actually. If attacked by the red head, he homes his shots at your position when he fired, so stay put for the first two against the wall where the Blue and Yellow heads are, after two shots, scramble to the top for the next two, then drop down before they hit. The blue head is easily dodged, just jump on top of it or jump to the top of the far wall. The yellow head is the only one that should have a chance to hit you, Rising Flame it as soon as it appears to minimize attack. The Sigma head on the floor will either try to suck you in or blow you into a spike wall. Dash in opposite direction until wind stops, then hit it with Ground Hunter, it will fade after a few hits then one of the heads will attack...dodge accordingly. Laser Gun Sigma is vulnerable in the face. If he is just shooting random shots then dodge them before the spread out and try to land a few shots on him. If he says "The End" then scramble to the top of the Heads Wall to the left quickly, else you will feel pain...lots of it. Either way when this form fades you will be attacked by another one of the heads again. Repeat until finished. Both heads need to be destroyed before victory.

Zero has an easier time with this. Sigma's first form is still weak to Flaming Uppercut (Forgot the name of the attack), and same attack pattern still applies, hit him twice then climb a wall until his screen sweep is done, repeat. Form two...same. Form three, Flaming Uppercut the Laser Gun Sigma head when opportunity arises, mostly in his Non-The End attack pattern, and use Zero's Ice Attack on the Ground BOund head. Also, the Flaming Uppercut is useful on the Yellow head when it attacks! Hope this helps you!

Last weekend, I got in the mood the play through Clive Barker's Undying again. It'd been a while, so I figured what the hell. I played through and made good progress, making it to the final boss of the game without any real trouble from the other bosses. And that's when I was reminded of what a pain in the ass the game's final boss was.

I won't say it's name, as that would wreck some of the surprise. However, it's big, it's worm-like, and it has a weak point that I still don't know exactly where it is. Besides having very large tentacles in the water that can swat you dead in two hits, you have to blow off a few things from it's body. This part's very easy, as it only takes a few blasts of dynamite. However, what follows is both simple, and seemingly impossible.

Now it's gut opens up and tries to suck you in. A quick shot from the gun and that's done. Then it leans down, and... something opens on it's head. Here's the hard part. You're supposed to hit it somewhere, but I've never figured out where though. So while you're trying to hit that mysterious weak point, you've still got tentacles trying to swat you, and the gut that tries to suck you in if you don't hit the weak point after a certain amount of time.

Now, I've beaten the boss, and I've seen the ending. But, I still have no clue where it's weak point is. As such, it turns into an endurance test to see how long you can go before you either win, or run out of health and healing items. So much of it's easy, but it's that last bit of info that winds up making it tough.

Something tells me though, if I ever do learn where that spot is, it'll be like the final boss in [i}Quake where it becomes so easy to win, it's sad :lol:

A quick seach on GameFAQs revealed That you're supposed to shoot a charged Skull Storm into the opening in it's head, then he opens his lower body again and the pattern repeats itself.

I'd have to add in a character that I doubt has been put on this list, which is a shame, 'cos he's a real beast, too.

The level 200 Zenothlee at the end of Grandia Xtreme. First of all, a pain in the ass because he's level 200. But he's also at the bottom of a 100-floor dungeon. Plus, he's resistant to quite a bit of magic, and has insane defense and HP. Not to mention the backup of four different floating crystals(think Culex, but meaner), and the crystal regenerate after you defeat them.

The battle itself will take forever, especially if you factor in the time it takes to get to the bottom of the dungeon and the time it takes to level up enough to not get killed in the first five minutes, and to track down enough equipment to survive and do damage to him.

Stupid Zenothlee.

I'm currently stuck in Burnout 3: Take Down. Now while it's true that there are no "bosses" persé, there is a final race... or at least, a second to final race.

I have everything done but two events in the USA section. I've unlocked most of the cars, earned all the money-based ones from the crash events, and overall, I've done well in the game. But this final part is just... almost cheating. The second to last event is Grand Prix race of four tracks in a row, and holy hell is it hard. You're stuck with the Formula 1 car, which is quite fast. Sadly, it's also extremely squirrelly in the rear, and it steers like a brick once you get going. It's so light, that as you gain speed, you're almost floating just off the ground, making maneuvering a real pain. No only that, but the course is littered with traffic (moreso than usual), and the other cars seem to have this uncanny ability to stick to the road like they have super glue on their tires... despite having the same type of car you do.

It's the type of thing that makes racing games feel cheap, and it's a shame this game resorts to this kind of bullshittery right at the end of an otherwise great and very fun game. I've been trying to beat this damned race for a week now, and the best I've done is fourth place over all. I'm almost scared to see what the final event will be, if this is what they're throwing at me right before it.

With all the posts abot FF7 and how to beat some of the bosses, I just might get this game. Combine my little knowledge on RPGs with your guys' superior smartness, I'll pwn that game in no time. But provided that it's a Final Fantasy game, I'll except long hours and minimal sleep. :?

I didn't read all 160+ pages but I saw lots of FF games. Did anyone post about FFX? The fight against that one tank thing on the ice lake and the fight with that one dude with blue hair and a girly voice. He was a bitch. I tried leveling up so much but he whooped me big time. I'm might get FFX again just to beat him. Any ideas?

Seymour? Which version of him?

And it sounds like you didn't even see any of the extra bosses in the Arena, and Nemesis.

Yeah Seymour. The form with the strong summon. The undead dude that shoots crap out of his eye. I can get to the summon but then 2 two hits and I'm down for the count.

Sigma, X4.

I'm actually looking for a cheat for that bastard, because form 3 kills me.

I remember that... Are you talking about defeating him with Megaman or Zero? I haven't played X4 in a long time, but I recall Zero's final battle to be tougher, with the whole limited range thing...

Also, Colonel seemed very tough with Zero at the time...

Summoning Shiva (???? in Yuna's summon menu) should be enough to vanquish Seymour's summon. If not, summon another aeon.

You must be seriously under-levelled then, or your strategy isn't working. Shiva should be enough to at least take Anima down to near-death.

K, if you want a REALLY hard RPG boss, Yaksa Meganada from Digital Devil Saga 2 has had me levelling up and learning skills for the past 4 hours of gameplay, and I still can't beat him.

He starts by being immune to physical attacks and using nothing but physical attacks. Then, after he's been dealt about 2000 damage, he's begin using a powerful, multi-hit move that can kill your entire party and is unblockable. At about 3000 or so, he'll change to his magic form, and get at least 4 turns every round. If he exploits a weakness, he'll get more. Oh, and he's now immune to all magic save electricity, which he absorbs.

At about 4000 damage he'll use a lightning move that WILL kill the entire party unless blocked. He'll also use status magic, meaning if a certain character is in your party you're gonna get raped.

By the way, he's got 9000 hit points. I basically need to find and learn Debilitate on the skill grid if I want to avoid getting slaughtered every time.

Wow. This game's final bosses are a pain.

I've been playing Shining the Holy Ark again for a while now, and I finally reached the end. It's been a few years since I last played and won, and I'd forgotten how this final section is a bitch. It's one of those endings were you don't fight a boss, but rather two bosses... one of whom has helpers.

First, you fight Rilix who summons a pair of very large armored Evil Vampires to her side. Besides her pounding on you with top level Freeze spells and various attacks like Poison Claw and such, you also have to contend with her large helpers... who have all sorts of attacks and magic of their own. Once (if?) you manage to make it through all this, you win right? Wrong.

I won't say who or what is the final boss (I won't ruin the fun), or even what you have to beat on the thing. But know that it's big, powerful, and not only does it do plenty of damage with it's attacks, it has one spell that can bring the game to a fast end... Soul Steal. If it hits, that character dies right on the spot. So you go from being pummeled by three different powerful monsters, to being killed instantly by one. Granted, there are spells and such that can bring characters back to life, but magic points run out, and so do items.

Having tried several times to win, I think I'll be doing some leveling up before I try again.

Edit: Damned spelling again...

i would say the atma weapon from FF3. or maybe masa&mune from chrono trigger.

i've always thought fighting bowser the third time in mario 64 was rather tough, but i've also met people who think i'm either stupid or just a pansy for thinking that.

wtf is wrong with you? That boss Atma was an easy win. That is if your level 40....

There was also the Vanish/Doom trick that worked on almost every boss.

Okay, any Dragon Quest VIII players out there?

What are your thoughts on the bonus dungeon bosses? GOSH DANG THOSE GUYS ARE TOUGH!

the pumped-up version of Indalecio from Star Ocean 2 is bloody impossible.

I'll second that. I went through the entire extra dungeon, got all its absurd items, decimated the boss, beat the extra boss in the trumpet, and assumed Indalecio++ would be easy. He destroyed me.

Once you get Bahamut and the ability to make Trio of 9999, FFX's normal bosses are way too easy.

Grand Summon Bahamut, Mega Flare, Mega Flare, dismiss, Trio of 9999, Blitz Ace/Whatever Tidus's second move is called. Bring in Auron and Wakka to clean up.

I've still never managed to beat Ballos in Cave Story, namely because I can't make it through Hell.

Hahaha, I think I quit on the SPOILERS

Dragovian Trials after the...I think it was the third version he went to decided to just kill a couple of party members in one turn. END SPOILERS

With the game having been so easy up to that point, I just decided it wasn't worth screwing around with.
