The Time Devourer.
Metroid Prime's second form.
God I still remember how hard it was. Especially since I had most of my health gone from her first form. I had five health left when I beat her, god that intense.
You can only save once before you start the battle, and if you die while battling any one of his four forms, you go back to the beginning. His attacks are unbelievably powerful, and his final form can only take one point of damage, no matter what gun you use. You just unload on him until another character decides to give you the right gun. :bang:
Then, just to make things worse, when you think you've finally beat him, you have to outrun him, trying to get to the boiler room. Then, when you overload the boiler and say an epic line, you have to outrun him again. Doesn't sound to hard, except for the fact that if you make one wrong turn in that maze of a battleship, he'll catch you, kill you, and you'll start... before the boss battle ever began.
Don't believe me? Look at this.
How the hell does the picture keep disappearing?!
In Kingdom Hearts, I had a bitch of a time beating the final boss. I even forget his name, 'cause I've played KH2 so much I only remeber him as Xemnas' Heartless.
Definately Psycho Mantis, never has a boss screwed with my gaming until the boss fight...
Melbu Frahma from The Legend of Dragoon (Best rpg ever imo). Took me around a whole hour to beat and had cool battle sequences (sweet music doesn't hurt either).
And pretty much any boss from the Parasite eve series, they are very intimidating
This isn't the overrated boss thread.
The only thing that made Giygas 'good' was the subpar art made about it. The actual boss battle is a pretentious shitfest made to cater to the lowest common denominator of people who think vague and boring = deep and intriguing
I only wanted to be loved
Puzzle quest, this guy can kill you with 2-3 moves, drain all your mana, health, and all the skulls on the grid.
The worst boss of all time comes from the most intimidating game ever: Kingdom Hearts... it is the dragon you have to fight at the last 'world' (well, on the map...)... I spent, ohhh 24 tries at killing it before I gave up for a week, came back, 30 more and I beat it!
The coolest boss I think is when you beat starfox the impossible way and the final boss is not a robot, but a floating brain! (yea, so far the only person I know who did it that way was my dad... and it is real, I watched him do it!)
The worst, even worse than the worst boss was from that game where you get infected and then get that glaive throwing weapon type deal... there is a robot, with miniguns, and rocket launchers that kill you in 1 shot, 50% of the time you are shot behind cover you die anyway, and there is 1, seriously, 1 cover object!
EDIT- just saw the hand from Super Smash Bros. that is a good boss, man the N64 has the 2 coolest bosses of all time!
Fighting Saren in Mass Effect. I hadn't been as excited about an ending for awhile as I was about Mass Effect's ending.
Most bosses from Titan Quest and Immortal Throne. Charon scared the fuck out of me the first time he shot water up through the bridge.
I bet nobody knows what I'm talking about. D:
I really loved the Ocelot fist fight in MGS4 due to all the nostalgia it induced.
Gruntilda what a bitch
Every boss from Phantasy Star Online I had a lot of fun with, but the final bosses always were the most epic. Episode one was nothing compared to the horror of the being from Episode two, though.
Episode Two: (Yeah, no good pictures; found a doodle instead.)
http://www.imagenic.net/images/gi1b25afaie38vx8fk5z.jpg^Was the real bad-ass.
Came with epic music too.
Also was I the only one that was heavily reminded of the battle with Wesker in RE5 during the fight with Vamp? In both cases you give the boss an injection to weaken him (or in Vamp's case, make him "mortal").
III was painful to play.
IV I actually really liked. Dunno why, but it "felt" just right. Still not as good as I (in my opinion) but pretty damn good.
Cerebulon, Destroyer of Worlds! (War of the Monsters)
I just found that to be boringly simple, had no trouble with it at all and even less in co-op.
Good game though.
