Inspired by the topic about boss grief in PEve, and by this article on TVTropes, I thought I'd chuck this one out there.


What bosses are the ones you have struggled with most, across any game you can think of?

I seem to remember Final Fantasy VII's Red Dragon, followed by Demon Gate close after, being a real pair of bastards. You just about survive the dragon and its ridiculous attack power (through judicious use of Fire Rings) and then you get hit by that non-elemental bad boy which just loves to rape you in a manner previously demonstrated by Edward Scissor-dick. Absurdly powerful all-ally-hitting attacks and no real discernible means to mitigate the damage. God, the amount of Game Over screens I got against him...not to mention the Dock Loader later on. That robot was just plain nasty. He'd grab a character and just take him out of the equasion until you destroyed the arm that was grabbing them. And he had two such arms. So he could grab two characters. After taking out both arms, the boss had one (count em: 1) attack. That attack was called Lapis Laser, and it did 1400+ damage to everyone. Cue Game Over screen rage...


Then we come to Cuchulainn, one of the espers of FFXII. Constant super-fast health degeneration which was unblockable, plus super-fast health-degrenerating status effects, plus poison, blind, silence, etc, and a stack of health absurdly long. Oh, and some nigh-unkillable little mates in the boss arena...

Those are all I can think of offhand though I'm sure I have more. Share yours :)

I find all of FF13's bosses frustratingly hard, like...difficulty that wasn't needed, it was just there to extend game time. I struggled so much against one of the bosses at the top of a tower on grand pulse.

and when I was younger, I really struggled with the Nemesis.
Hmm...I'll update this post when I think of more..^.^

Well, Sephy in the Kingdom Hearts series was a totally fucking bastard. I only ever managed to beat him once and I had to be drunk to do it.

I find most of the Persona 4 baddies to just be annoying, hence I hate having to grind through them. And Dr. Robotnick just freaked me out.

Firstly, thank you for calling Dr Robotnik by his proper name. None of this Eggman bullcrap.

Secondly, yeah he did have a couple of nasty boss fights. The worst was probably the big robot of Sonic 2...no rings, had to hit it 13 times, and get -just- between his arms and his nose or else die because you had no rings...


Dragon Age 2 had a few nasty ones, especially if you ramped up the difficulty. Hell, even on Easy I got party-wiped by the Arishok a few times! Wasn't so much him as his motley band of 400 troops including those freaky mage characters. And High Dragon...f**k you. Just f**k that noise.

I think it was 12 times >.> I used to call the big Robotnik robot "big boss" xD

I just remembered, this isn't a boss battle that i hated... it was one I really enjoyed because it was a huge challange.
I played Devil May Cry 3 on Dante Must Die mode (thee hardest difficulty) and the second battle against Vergil was the hardest I've ever done. He's way faster (ontop of his already present teleporting skills), kills in around 2 hits and is impossible to dent once he's in his demon form...and even then he gets an extra power and speed boost from the transformation as well as the ability to automatically heal himself xD so it takes AGES to kill him.

Demon Gate in FFVII I hate that boss, took me a bit to beat it on my first playthrough x.x;
and Odin in FFXIII :/ (so far seeing this is as far as I`ve gotten)
and one boss I remember in FFX that I thought was hard Dx and I cant remember the name for it.... x.x;
that`s all I can think of for now...now I`m off to see if I can beat Odin this time! xD

I managed to skill my characters just wrongly enough that I can get to the very most final boss in FFIII (oldschool, yes) and then he kills me in two rounds. Every time.
