Top 10 Hardest Boss Fights

First of all, I AM following the Play Before Put rule on this list. NO EXCEPTIONS.
Secondly, It's not enough that I've played the game, I actually have to have faced the boss.
Thirdly, it has to qualify as a boss for one of these reasons:
1. Considered a boss by the community
2. Declared a boss officially, despite not being one prior.
3. Is a boss right out of the box.
Lastly, I'm only going to put ONE boss per franchise, so don't expect to see Jinpachi and Azazel to both be on this list.

Bosses. You have to have fought at least one, and odds are you've lost a couple of times. These aren't necessarily the ten best, but they are the ten hardest. Just clearing that up to avoid confusion.

10: Slash (Guitar Hero 3)
I haven't played Guitar Hero in a while, but I do remember this: The battle against Slash was HARD. Were it not for the incentive of unlocking "Welcome to the Jungle" after beating him, I probably would have just given up after 10 tries. The reason he only makes it to 10 on the list, is because after I beat him the first time, I never lost to him again, until I tried on Expert.

9: Headless Horseless Horsemann (TF2)
There are two reasons the boss only makes it to #9 on the list:
Firstly, you can only fight him during the Halloween event, so he's not that easy to get to fight in the first place.
Secondly, how hard he is really just depends on how good the other players are, since if you have 19 horrible players (or battle Medics :razz:) and yourself on the server, your chances of winning are extremely low, while if you have 5 good (or at least average) players fighting him with you, your chances of victory are great, if not excellent.
It was kind of hard to place this boss on the list for those reasons.

Re: Top 10 Hardest Boss Fights

8: Dr. Von Buttnick (Retro City Rampage)
Retro city rampage was probably the most ridiculous game ever, combining 80s references right and left, with the feel of playing an overhead 8-bit version of Grand Theft Auto (that in the true spirit of 8-bit, was greatly reduced in realism). Anyway, this list is about hardest bosses, not greatest parodies.
Von Buttnick's fight was the most annoying in the game, giving you only 3 chances to win, otherwise it would start you over at the beginning of the fight. You have to dodge several bombs, several vehicles, all while trying to shoot at a giant mechanical robot ship thing that I don't even have a CLUE how to describe. The boss fight actually looks harder than it is though, because his health bar is 25 blips long, but it only takes 5 hits to win.

Re: Top 10 Hardest Boss Fights

Just something to say: until GTA IV came out, GTA was never that realistic.
Common misconception.

Re: Top 10 Hardest Boss Fights

7: Lu Bu (Dynasty Warriors 5, possibly before)
Lu Bu is probably the most difficult fight in the entire game, but even so, for seasoned players and maxed out characters, it's no real challenge. Lu Bu doesn't really count as a boss, yet at the same time he does. Pretty much any character you can play as qualifies as a boss in that game, and you can play as Lu Bu. Lu Bu's fight is unique in the way that not only does he regenerate health when you walk away, but he also somehow gets his horse, Red Hare back. EVEN IF YOU STOLE IT. Yes. Lu Bu is able to break logic by duplicating Red Hare. Plus, he's the only character that you fight that can use Musou Rage.

Really? I thought Slash and Lou were pieces of cake! I HATE the Tom Morillo battle though. I ALWAYS fail at it every time. :X

Re: Top 10 Hardest Boss Fights

6: Mike Tyson/Mr. Dream (Punch-Out)
First of all, I've never even come CLOSE to beating Mike Tyson in Punch-Out. Not even remotely. At the beginning of the match you have to be incredibly quick and have insanely fast reflexes to avoid being knocked down by those uppercuts. One hit, and you're down. The only reason this isn't higher on the list is because it's Punch-Out. There are only 8 things you can do in this game that have any effect whatsoever. Dodge left/right, Left/right Jab/Punch, Block, and Star Uppercut. It's a simple boss, but at the same time extremely hard.

Re: Top 10 Hardest Boss Fights

5: The Enemy Paddle (Pong)
First of all this doesn't really qualify as a boss, or even so much as an enemy at first. But when you think about it, the enemy paddle from pong does pose as the only real challenge without going multiplayer... Still. The enemy paddle moves somewhat quickly and always knows what to do next. That's what the AI of games back then was like. Back in the 80s it was button-reader AI, and come the 90s it became AI that can wind up making the enemy try to walk through walls to shoot you. Which brings me to the next point I have...

Re: Top 10 Hardest Boss Fights

4: Heihachi Mishima (Tekken)
You all saw this one coming. Back in the 90s, SOME AI was the walk through walls type. This held true to the button-reader mechanic. Unfortunately, Marshall Law wasn't a boss, or he'd be taking this spot instead. :razz: Heihachi's moveset is very similar to that of Kazuya, but with one major difference: He's a bit slower, much more powerful, and has a few crazy throws and such. I'd put the Tekken 4 variant here instead, but I've never played Tekken 4.

#6: Actually, only the very first uppercuts are 1-hit kos. After the 1st minutes, they do just as much as super macho man.
#5: I didn't expect that.
#4: Unfourtanetly, I've never played Tekken. What's Kazuya's moveset like?

Re: Top 10 Hardest Boss Fights

№ 3: Anti-Music Aliens (Elite Beat Agents)
Now, keep in mind I haven't played this game in a while. Let's just say I need a new can of contact cleaner. :oops:
Anti-Music Aliens. While this isn't exactly a boss because you don't actually fight them, it still counts since it's the final stage of the game. So really I'm rating the difficulty of the song "Jumpin' Jack Flash". One word: Hard. It took me at least 12547 tries to get it even half-right.

Re: Top 10 Hardest Boss Fights

Huh. Looking back I want to replace Slash with The Beast from Warriors of Rock. Oh well. Too late now.

№² [The Negativitron {Little Big Planet 2}]
Again, it's been a while. Anyway, the Negativitron is he second hardest boss I've faced in any video game to date. It's a mulit-stage battle that uses the controllinator, grappling hook, and grabinator in each part respectively. While it didn't take as many tries to beat this as it did to beat the Anti-Music Aliens, It was much longer.

Re: Top 10 Hardest Boss Fights

I still say the collector from the first was harder.

It was so hard, the community made a joke that the reward you get for beating him perfectly [yellow head] was a myth since it was impossible to beat him perfectly.

Re: Top 10 Hardest Boss Fights

I just realized that this countdown was never finished. :duckface:

Until now...


I: Yukari Yakumo (Perfect Cherry Blossom)
Yukari. I'll bet that when this countdown was originally being made, none of us would have expected this, or seen it as a logical decision at all. :twiface:

Still, if I really need to say more, Yukari is basically Ran's fight, made to be harder. That's it. So while it does disappoint in that way, at least it's explained by the fact that Ran is Yukari's shikigami, and to a lesser extent by the fact that this was the first (and so far only?! ZUN. WAT ARE WRONG WITH YOU?) time a Phantasm stage was made in a Touhou game. Still, it's easier to link a video than to explain the fight in full detail here, but after about 30 seconds, you'll see what I mean when I put this at #1.


(At about 3:30 the battle starts.)


18:43 - "You have thirty minutes to move your car."
18:58 - "You have fifteen minutes to move your car."
19:15 - "Your car has been crushed into a cube."
