Ddddddd-duel time

The list of the hardest boss fights is definitely flawed. I certainly haven’t played every video game, and I haven’t faced every boss battle in the video games I’ve played. there is played. I am also only human and can only speak for my own experiences. I’ve watched other players blitz through boss battles that took me hours and vice versa. By its nature, this list is subjective and very personal.

Still, I’ve played a lot of video games and faced a lot of bosses. I may not be able to come up with an objective, definitive list, but I think I can offer a pretty good one. With that in mind, I’d like to take a trip down memory lane to revisit some of the most frustratingly big baddies I’ve ever had the displeasure of fighting.

10. 50/20 – Last Special Night

Last Special Night Acts as something of a digestif for the period directed by Scott Cawthon Five Nights at Freddy’sof. The game features 50 stealthy enemies whose behavior can be adjusted by the player. Setting all 50 enemies to level 20, maximum aggression, allows you to try the most demanding single night, 50/20. Five Nights at Freddy’s Clay history. That’s pretty tough.

FNaF, at best, is a series about balancing spinning tiles, and playing 50/20 means balancing a truly incredible number of tiles. All 50 enemies require different reactions, and each of them is almost impossible to keep up with at its most aggressive. It’s an unconventional “boss fight”, but a really tough one.

9. Thunderblight Canon – The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

I’m not a big fan The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wildthe battle of The game is a nice physics sandbox, but I’ve always found it a bit lacking as an action RPG. I don’t like the game’s combat as such, peaking in the ridiculously frustrating Thunderblight Ganon fight. The other three Divine Beast Ganon fights are reasonably forgettable, but this one is memorable for the difficulty of crushing the controller.

Thunderblight Ganon is incredibly fast and incredibly powerful. Getting shocked in the first phase is basically a death sentence, so running and rushing are pretty much the only viable strategies. Later stages are even more irritating and insidious. This is one of those boss fights that is both very hard and very annoying.

8. Sephiroth – King of hearts

Speaking of tough and annoying…

King of hearts Another combat related action RPG that I just don’t mind. The action is poor and the camera is absolutely pathetic. These problems aren’t generally too hard to overcome in the main game, but the optional bosses are downright annoying. Sephiroth is easily the most difficult of these, requiring the player to learn all the ins and outs of a difficult combat system.

7. Star Tower Radahn – The Elder Ring

Yes, of course FromSoftware is on this list. Not to spoil too much, but FromSoftware is actually on this list a few times. The studio’s latest game, The Elder Ring, full of obscenely difficult boss encounters. Many will doubtless wonder how I could leave out the legendarily difficult battles with characters like Malenia, Miquella’s Blade, or the Beast of Elden.

To be honest, I can’t include those fights in this list because I never got around to them. I’m stuck with Starscourge Radahn, who likes to destroy my beloved steed without a second thought. I’m sure there are tougher boss fights The Elder Ring, but I’m not sure when (or if) I’ll run into them. So Radahn takes his place.

6. King Dice – Kobokbasi

There are very tough boss fights Kobokbasi, but the penultimate opponent, King Dice, has to be the hardest. That’s because King Dice isn’t just an insanely challenging enemy – it’s somewhere between four and ten.

King Dice Battle is essentially a boss trap of randomly selected mini-bosses. There’s an outside chance you’ll get lucky during this fight and only run into easy enemies, but you’re more likely to get destroyed over and over again, forcing you to start over. The final battle Kobokbasi pretty tough, but this second-to-last battle is one that really tests you for the skills you’ve developed up to this point.

5. Sans Genocide – Undertale

This list contains several optional bosses, enemies that you will have to seek out for yourself. Several bosses are as optional as Sans. You have to kill every enemy to face Sans UndertaleBy doing the Genocide Run, this route is more difficult (both in terms of gameplay and emotion) than anything else. Undertale.

The capstone of this incredibly difficult run is the last incredibly difficult battle. Genocide Sans is a very difficult task. If it has the philosophical weight to remove every attractive character in it Undertale Not enough to dissuade you from Genocide Run, Sans might. Undertale‘s “combat” is mostly about running, and Sans throws an incredible number of obstacles your way at incredibly high speeds.

4. Ornstein and Smough – Dark Souls

I told you FromSoftware was coming back. “Dark Souls” is practically synonymous with “tough boss fights,” and the doubleheader featuring Ornstein and Smough might be the toughest boss fight in the entire series. In the first stage, you will challenge two absurd powerhouses at the same time. After hitting one of them, the battle becomes even more difficult, because the surviving enemy becomes very powerful in the second stage.

Ornstein and Smough are one of many chokepoints Dark Souls. This is where tons of players bounce back because they just can’t get ahead (unlike Starscourge Radahn, I’m happy to announce that I actually beat those two). Once you get past this point, you’re really ready for anything Dark Souls can be thrown at you.

3. Yozora – Kingdom Hearts 3

I promise a great presence King of hearts This list is not the only result I am interested in the series. Some of these boss fights are truly amazingly difficult. Yozora, the final boss Kingdom Hearts 3 Re: Mind DLC is one such duel.

Original Kingdom Hearts 3 it’s ridiculously easy. The game’s impressive combat system is held back by the fact that there are very few engaging battles in the campaign. Thankfully, post-launch DLC offers plenty of great opportunities to flex your Keyblade mastery. Yozora is lightning fast and his crossbow attacks do a ton of damage, making this one of the toughest boss fights ever. Also, he is voiced by Dylan Sprouse in English. It’s strange.

2. Gabriel, Judge of Hell – Ultra kill

Ultra kill, a super-fast, super-fierce indie darling FPS, has plenty of memorable battles. The most memorable has to be Gabriel, the Judge of Hell, the final boss of Act II. Gabriel is another super fast high damage dealer that requires you to max out your toolkit.

Thank goodness you have a tool kit Ultra kill it is huge. Taking down Gabriel by making the most of the weapons at your disposal is extremely satisfying – but you indeed you have to know what you are doing to get to this point.

1. Work, Holy Sword – Ax: Shadows die twice

Bring it on for FromSoftware’s third and final appearance on this list! Ax: Shadows die twice It might be FromSoft’s most challenging game yet, and the final boss, Sword of the Holy Job, is the perfect climax to the game. Ax it really asks that you meet it on its own terms, and Ishin exemplifies this philosophy masterfully.

This struggle requires a thorough understanding Ax‘s combat, Mikiri Counters curbs and lightning turns. This is what all good final boss battles should be: a test to see what the player has learned. Remember: hesitation is defeat.
