The Contenders: Page 2XW

21Shodan (System Shock)

Haha, I just learned about System Shock a few minutes ago. Sounds to me like SHODAN and GLaDOS would be great friends. Somebody make a crossover! :P

22Porky Minch (Earthbound Series)
23Dr. Wily (Megaman Series)
24Dracula (Castlevania Series)
25Master Core (Super Smash Bros. 4)
26Toroko (Cave Story)
27Terramorphous The Invincible (Borderlands 2)
28The Amalgamates (Undertale)

I am not sure if this can be classified as a boss. Can someone check Undertale Wiki and see?

2902 (Kirby 64)

This critter's boss theme is amazing, and from what I can tell, is very easy to make a good remix of. There are so many good arrangements of the boss theme I've seen.

30Nightmare (Metroid Fusion)
31The Hydra (God of War)
32Jenova (Final Fantasy XII)
33Kefka Palazzo (Final Fantasy)
34Donkey Kong (Mario Series)Donkey Kong is an arcade game released by Nintendo in 1981. It is an early example of the platform game genre, as the gameplay focuses on maneuvering the main character across a series of platforms while dodging and jumping over obstacles.

Not as iconic as Bowser, but definitely very iconic.

35Albert Wesker (Resident Evil Series)

And I'm the only fanboy here doesn't recognize Dr. Albert Wesker? He's really iconic in RE4 and RE6! Dr. Wesker should be in the Top 20! - JomartheGreat

36Bob The Killer Goldfish
37Sephiroth (Final Fantasy)

Ah yes, the fangirls just love him.

38The Spider (Limbo)
39Majora (The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask)
40Meta Knight (Kirby)Meta Knight is a fictional character from the Kirby series of video games owned by Nintendo and HAL Laboratory.
