That asshole Gnasty Gnorc from spyro. What a bitch
Any game in which the final super uber-doober boss is a little worm in a fishbowl. And you just break it to win. I remember one of Sven-Coop's levels had one of these bosses. Very epic.
Emperor Ing in Metroid Prime 2. One of the hardest bosses I've fought in all the games I've played, and Metroid Prime from Metroid Prime. Or basically any boss in the entire Metroid Prime series.
Most bosses in Metal Slug. The real bitch one I think is from Metal Slug 4, the one that has the robots.

[QUOTE=Tugger;16730214][img]http://www.beefjack.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/04/shadow_of_the_colossus_ps2.jpg[/img] all of them.[/QUOTE] There should be more games like this where you have to properly interact with enemies to kill them. Shadow of the Collosus is awesome, because there's no monsters other than the Collossi. And how you don't just hack and slash your way to victory; you have to climb up the monsters, get them in weak points etc.
[QUOTE=Evil_Toaster;16730326] Yami from Okami. 5 phase boss battle of epic proportions. [img]http://okamiworld.com/wiki/images/thumb/5/54/YamiTrue.jpg/725px-YamiTrue.jpg[/img] [/quote] Hell yes. The music is partly what made that fight so awesome. [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VZxK58tPU4I[/media]
[QUOTE=seek;16731654]I liked every boss from Kingdom Hearts.[/QUOTE] Agreed, but the last part of the last battle in KH2 is a fucking bitch. I couldn't do the bit where you're surrounded with lasers then my card broke :'(
[QUOTE=Warriorx4;16748997]Might I inquire the source?[/QUOTE] That would be Suikoden II. Awesome game in general. One of the few JRPGs that I've found fun.
The Time Devourer. [img]http://i13.tinypic.com/68jj4uo.jpg[/img]
Metroid Prime's second form. [img]http://media.giantbomb.com/uploads/0/6828/334988-metroid_prime_s_core_super.jpg[/img] 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.
[highlight]Ultimate Being.[/highlight] [img]http://www.gamedepiction.com/media/pe-mutate2.jpg[/img] 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 [b]one point of damage,[/b] 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 [b]outrun him[/b], 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 [i]one wrong turn[/i] in that maze of a battleship, he'll catch you, kill you, and you'll start... [highlight]before the boss battle ever began.[/highlight] Don't believe me? Look at this.

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.

[QUOTE=PirateMax;16733882][img]http://chocolate.szm.sk/data/images/diablo2.jpg[/img] Diablo in Diablo II.[/QUOTE] I remember he scared the shit out of me and I would only play it on co-op with my dad, I was so young haha.

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).
