Topic: Your Favorite Boss Battles in video Games

Posts 1 to 20 of 33


Exactly as it sounds.
Now, leaving aside the fact that my gaming diet hasn't consisted of much, I still came across a few gems.

My favorite is Dingodile's battle from Crash Bandicoot WARPED. A great soundtrack, a funny character, that penguin, and great battle

Other than that.. idk. Maybe bowser, but he's not one I actually go back to fight just because.

I know this list is pretty haphazard, but I do like these bosses.


  • SMW Bowser (mainly nostalgia as the first final boss I've ever beat)
  • TP Ganon
  • KH Sephiroth
  • Nightmare (Link's Awakening)
  • Nightmare (Kirby's Adventure/Nightmare in Dreamland)
  • The Sorrow
  • The End
  • KH Ansem
  • KH: DDD Ansem
  • KH Xemnas
  • Volvagia
  • Twinrova
  • Stallord
  • Kurt Ziza (probably misspelled that)
  • That optional phantom boss in KH

Probably many more that I can't think of, lol.


Currently Playing: Hitman GO

Recently Beat: Castle of Illussion: Starring Mickey Mouse, Lara Croft GO, Front Mission Evolved


Another one, he's always been a favorite since I was a kid. Ripper Roo from Crash Bandicoot series. Not much of a challenge anymore lol
As for a specific bowser battle. I don't know. He's just, well, bowser. It's not really about the battle, though SMW was the best.

It has to be Gannon in Ocarina of Time as it complimented the story perfectly.



The frog from Yoshi's Island
Bowser in 3D Land
Bosses with music/ rhythm involved in fighting (like the Pinchin' Pirates from DKCR or Gooper Blooper in PM:SS)
And i like fighting Eyerok (SM64DS) as Yoshi, even though i'm not that sure it's possible to actually hurt him. But it''s also hard to get to him because you're supposed to be one of the humans to get in.

Mr. Freeze in Arham City.
Seriously, no other boss fight ever even comes close to the epic awesomeness there.

Egg Robo from Doomsday Zone in Sonic and Knuckles and for some reason I really liked the last Bowser battle in World 8 from Super Mario 3D Land.
Edit: I also loved the last battle against King K. Rool in DKC, Baby Bowser in Yoshi's Island and The Shadow Queen from Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door.

Someone else on here actually likes Crash Bandicoot! Yeah!
I can only think of a few right now.

  • Scorch from Spyro: Year of The Dragon - As a child, he was literally nightmare fuel for me. He lives in the skeleton of a dead beast, the dungeon you fight him in, and he's a mutated version of a regular enemy. To some extent I'm still scared of him. It's really his home that does it for me and it's probably the scariest location in concept and design I've encountered in a video game, just because of my nostalgia with it.
  • Medusa from Kid Icarus: Uprising - I love seeing a serious final boss with a personality like this and I honestly wish Hades hadn't usurped her so much. She should have stayed in the game for longer and I wish she had been the final fight at the very end because as much as I like Hades Medusa is simply much more awesome. She's Palutena's sister driven by jealousy, she's simply an old trope... Done fantastically.
  • Fawful from the Mario & Luigi series: I HAVE FURY!
