Boss Time!

Postby Shade » Mon Oct 31, 2011 11:48 am

Music is just one thing that can make a game awesome. Another thing is memorable boss fights.

In this thread I want to see what video game bosses you guys think kick ass (or ones whose ass you enjoy kicking). Try to find a video on Youtube or something if at all possible.

I'll start off with Cerberus α from Mischief Makers. What other boss can you fight where you can ride a missile while riding a cat?

I love the final battle against GlaDOS in Portal 2. No vid because Spoilers.

Treasure always makes the best boss fights. Case in point - Seven Force from Gunstar Heroes

Fun Fact: Margaret Moonlight has the same voice actor as Twilight Sparkle.

Here's my favorite boss from the Metroid Prime Trilogy: Quadraxis.

Ugh, I've gotten through Deus Ex: Human Revolution recently and it kind of proves the OP's point - it's a stellar game and its largest flaws are the world's most uninteresting boss fights. Granted, I hear they were outsourced, but that's no excuse.

At any rate, I loved the boss fights in Okami - Orochi, Ninetails and Yami come to mind.

Oh my! That game was pretty awesome.
Which it was available on the Virtual Console.

Anyways, one of my favorite boss battle and boss battle theme was Ganon from Ocarina of Time. It was such an epic atmosphere and music.

Time to give a shout-out to my favorite boss from Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow; Gergoth

This thing is just the right amount of gross and disturbing, yet awesome and fun.

Speaking of Castlevania and gross bosses, how do you guys feel about Legion?

I remember him from Portrait of Ruin. Castlevania takes the cake when it comes to grotesque bosses.

Yoshis Island! I remember playing that in a friends SNES years ago.

I love every final boss from Metroid, specially the Metroid Queen in Metroid II.

Personally, I was disappointed by pretty much every boss in Metroid Prime 3. The final boss especially was way too easy, it made the end feel kind of anti-climactic. Don't get me wrong, I love the game, the bosses were just a bit of a let-down. Except maybe for that battle with Meta Ridley near the beginning, that was pretty cool.


But I digress...


This is probably my favorite boss in the Zelda series: Goht, from The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask.
