• The Most Epic Bosses in Video Gaming History
    293 replies, posted
I wouldn't call it one of the most epic in gaming history, but I really loved the bosses and how they were portrayed (compared to original Greek mythology/the book) in Dante's Inferno. Especially King Minos and Cerebrus.

[img]http://i.imgur.com/HdM6U.jpg[/img] theres a long list of demons/dark souls bosses that are amazing, but the vagina dragon wins on visuals :D
never got the nickname on that one. Guess it was named by virgins who are afraid of women.
Most of the Magicka bosses

Marauder Shields.
hitler from sniper elite V2 if only because you can shoot his nuts off with xray bullet cam
The QuinKing from Ty 3, mostly because I didn't expect it to be a goddamn T-Rex [IMG]http://images.wikia.com/tygame/images/e/ec/Quinking_image.jpg[/IMG] And Overlord Zetta from post game in Disgaea 2-4 [IMG]http://www.nisamerica.com/games/MK/images/zeta-main.gif[/IMG]
[QUOTE=Evil_Toaster;16730326] Yami from Okami. 5 phase boss battle of epic proportions.

It had platforming, it had surfing, it had shooting, it had one damn atmospheric level with some very memorable sound design. Also he's wearing the same crazy hat as the creator god of the universe and isn't afraid of anything.
Since this was bumped... [img]http://shrines.rpgclassics.com/psx/ffix/Pics/image3267.jpg[/img] Necron from FF9 and all the bosses from the last dungeon in the game. They all have this sureal presentation and arena, and then this asshole has Grand Crossing that inflicts a shitload of status hailments on you. Before him, you have Trance Kuja full of Flare magic and Curaga, which then blows everything up with Ultima, and before him you have his pet, Deathguise. And before all that, you have 4 elemental bosses to kill and one optional boss. Also, Ozma.

Thirteen'th collossus, "Phalanx" [img]http://niggaupload.com/images/cSXJ.jpg[/img] Holy shit this battle was epic. Then again, sixteen battles in Shadow of the Colossus were epic beyond everything else.
[QUOTE=Marden;35819780] Letho of Gulet from Witcher 2: [IMG]http://images.wikia.com/witcher/images/c/cd/Tw2_journal_Letho.png[/IMG][/QUOTE] His first battle was ridiculous, but why would you ever fight him at the end, he is by far the most interesting character, both in writing and design, in the entire game. Maybe Roche comes close but not really.

Maybe Roche comes close but not really.[/QUOTE] That's why he's such a cool boss, you don't have to fight him. Also, I forgot one more boss but I don't want to spoil anything: [sp]Clayface[/sp] in Arkham City.

[QUOTE=Im Crimson;35821849]A monstrous battle indeed, until you find out his weakness... [sp]He is not immune to to the Paralyze status[/sp][/QUOTE] You should have told me that 12 years ago.
this guy was the longest and most enjoyable boss battle ever. [img]http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20061203174241/uncyclopedia/images/f/ff/Mgs3-end-cobra-unit.gif[/img]

Of course every boss battle was fucking awesome. [img]http://shufflingdead.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/06/Water-Temple.jpg[/img] Also I'm just gonna include water temple as a boss its own, there is something about this temple that always fucks you up and leaves you running around forever. But also specifically for Shadow Link fight. [img]http://www.zeldawiki.org/images/d/d2/Dark_Link_OoT.jpg[/img] some of the coolest shit ive ever witnessed, the shadow link fight wasnt necessarily super hard, but it was just incredibly badass.
