Kingdom Hearts, from my own experience is known to have the hardest optional bosses. KH3D's Julius, I have yet to beat. And the Mysterious Figure on Birth by Sleep I never beat as well.

the tempest boss on insane... so annoying and frustrating.

Don't know....so many bosses I faced were hard.

Soloing General RAAM on Insane on Gears 1 was pretty intense.

Ugh, there's quite a few but none really coming to mind now. Must've been some dumb escort mission or something.

Just about any Metal Slug boss on the hardest setting.

Last boss in Ecco the dolphin, he gives the definition "hard" a new meaning :cry:

KH optional bosses, DMC3 Vergil, and the Star Ocean 2 final boss.

recently mgs 1 when i had fist fight with liquid it took me like 6 attempts maybe because i was tired but that immunity after a punch was annoying as hell. i beat him by hitting him once and hurried and ran in a small circle and repeated that like 20-30x and finally beat him.

Ugh.. my previous Boss at a plastering company... I swear he hated everyone but the manager.

#18 Posted by CanYouDiglt (7607 posts) -
I guess some of the Everquest bosses. We would have around 2 1/2 raid groups sometimes.

Yeah. Damn good fight too.

Demifiend (SMT: Nocturne protagonist) in Digital Devil Saga. I never beat him because it's almost impossible unless you're incredibly lucky and have all the highest gear.

The one that I actually beat is probably Yiazmat in Final Fantasy XII.

Red Baron from Jak 2

All In in Starcraft 2 on Brutal if it can be considered a boss. It's a half an hour long battle where your base is constantly swarmed by raging swarmlings and any minor mistake can easily snowball into a loss.

I managed to finish by the skin of my teeth, with my base completely razed and three ultralisks plus Kerrigan beating the sh!t out of the artifact. The damn thing had 6% hp left, if it activated half a second later I would've lost.

Doesn't Yiazmat just take awhile because his high HP, not necessarily difficult.

It was hard because I almost lost my mind due to boredom lol it's so tedious.

#26 Posted by sandbox3d (5130 posts) -

Not sure, but mind keeps wandering towards Ninja Gaiden when I think about it. 2d or 3d, NG has had its share of crazy bosses. There are a few tough bosses in the older CV games as well.

Ah yes, that's what I thought. I imagine you can just set some gambits and leave it down lol.

It's fine in the International version where they take out the damage limit and you have the fast forward option.

Well, looking forward to that fight then. Also gonna try to beat Demifiend, once I get around to DDS. Nocturne doesn't have any extra bosses does it?

Nearly every freaking boss in Super Empire Strikes Back, cheese and rice that game was hard.

#31 Posted by Grawse (4342 posts) -
The Queen at the end of Gears 3 on insane. With 3 randoms it took us like an hour, I did so much swearing lol, would never do that again.
#32 Posted by justiceturtle (437 posts) -

Not the hardest boss, but the Boost Ball Guardian from Metroid Prime 2 always got to me. It's overpowered and you're constantly taking damage from the environment.

#33 Posted by Sword-Demon (7001 posts) -

in recent memory, NG+ 4 Kings in Dark Souls.

no other boss in the game has given me too much trouble, and I beat the kings easily on the first playthrough, but every time I fight them in the 2nd playthrough, I get my @ss handed to me

I had too for the longest time until I downloaded it recently. I beat it as a kid, can't get past the second level now, I'm such a casual -_-

Fighting Kerrigan on Brutal difficulty in Starcraft 2. Dagrai Dai on Master Ninja in Ninja Gaiden.
#39 Posted by madsnakehhh (14923 posts) -

I don't know, way too much to remember now, however at the top of my head and from this gen i think it has to be Ornstein and Smough...such a difficult yet amazing boss battle.

I find a lot of games are like that when I play them now. I was recently playing Street Fighter 2010 The Final Fighton NES. I thought it was pretty easy as a kid, but now I'm getting my ass handed to me.

Most games were designed to murder us back then. Most games today are designed to hold our hands. A good balance would be nice.

Final Fantasy X had a secret boss you could fight, I don't remember the name but it was really hard.

No joke, I've beat NSMB like three times in the last year. I just beat Super Mario Bros. a few months ago for the first time since i first played it in 1991.

I still can't beat this boss on Insane. Everyone I know who has beaten it has done it through co-op. Did you ever beat it? Alone? Or with someone else?
