Hardest Video Game BossesLucasMota
The Top Ten
Some people can beat Tabuu with no damage even on intense difficulty but Queen Larsa is super harder and I don't think anyone has ever beat Queen Larsa without using continues, but at least a few people defeated Queen Larsa even on ultra mode.
Tabuu was pretty tough, but Larsa makes him look like a walk in the park. She will paint the screen in 3 colors; purple (the millions of bullets she unleashes on you), red (the blood that explodes from your body when you get), and clear (the tears you shed after losing once again for the umpteenth time). This is a boss where it's not a matter of IF you get hit, but WHEN. Unless you're Neo, expect to lose days of your time trying to win against this one.
Queen larsa is the most hard boss ever, Tabu is easy compared to her, All bullets are "ONE HIT KO! " and there are swarms of them..
Compared to everything, the spiritual version of her, is impossible.
(Note: All the bosses from Mushihimesama Futari are hard, but compared too queen larsa, they are just cute puppies)
I didn't have to play it. It's obvious that nothing else compares to this.V 26 Comments
I literally beat Tabuu in an hour at best. Mike Tyson, however, took me a span of a MONTH to beat. You have to be almost perfect in this fight. People can't beat Tabuu? Learn to dodge. Can't beat Iron Mike? Dodging leaves a narrow window of success, much smaller than Tabuu's. Half of his fight can leave you on the mat from a single blow, and unlike Tabuu, you get THREE TRIES to avoid being knocked out before having to fight Super Macho Man again! Sure, Tabuu was "hard", but he's not #1 quality.
Tabuu in SSBB on Intense is brutal, but Tabuu can simply be turned down in difficulty, Mike Tyson, the final boss of the 1987 NES game Punch-Out! On the other hand is brutal no matter what, from impossible patterns to those infamous one-hit KO dynamite punches, making matters worse is that not only are the fighters before Mike tough as it is, but Mike Tyson is eons harder than all of them, sorry Ruby/Emerald Weapon, Sephiroth and Tabuu - you've got nothing on the final boss of Punch-Out!, nor do most players, I can only imagine how many gamers conquered the entirety of Punch-Out! Back in the 1980's only to never take down the final boss fight with Mike.
This boss is not only hard for kids, but for adults as well. The first 1:30 are 1 hit kill uppercuts that give you just barely enough time to react. After that, his punches stop knocking you down in 1 hit, but Tyson becomes much more erratic, mixing up his patterns with uppercuts, jabs, and these punches with no animation frames whatsoever. Plus he blinks and then goes into this fast flurry of jabs that I have no clue how to dodge. Good luck beating this guy.
Combine every boss on this list and mike tyson is what comes out.V 17 Comments
You gotta be kidding me I beat tabuu on intense difficulty 3 times in a row and more times just for fun. You guys need to learn to dodge attacks and stuff haven't you seen the NO DAMAGE INTENSE DIFFICULTY videos? At least learn to play wisely before you vote for a slow, predictable boss
Just impossible, took me a long time just to complete, I was so happy when I beat him!
It took me 5 week's to beat this one guy! I kept trying and trying and within 5 weeks I found and unlocked him, and then in 5 more week's, I finally beat this guy! This guy is seriously hard to beat. By the way, When I won, I used Kirby, and Zelda the most cause sonic sucked a little
The part where he has his wings always kills me instantly no matter what percentage or difficulty I'm at - Azurin13V 47 Comments
He will cut off his opening speech to attack you, he will falsely give mercy to you, and his attacks are some of the hardest to dodge in this game or many bullet hells in general.
This entire battle is hell. Not because it's unfair. Not because it's unpredictable. Not because it drags on for the longest time. No, it's because, deep down, you know you deserved the beating from the start.
Sans is not only hard to beat because of his tormenting powers, but also because he plays mind games with you. Falsely giving you mercy, telling you about the resets. It's hard to focus when you know deep within you deserve this beatdown. The only way to beat him is to memorize his attacks and ignore his mind games.
I've actually fought him, and it took me about a month just to memorize his attack patterns. He is now the hardest, most complex-feels giving boss I've ever fought. Thanks Toby foxV 77 Comments
I'm kinda torn between this and brawl to beat him as a heads up have the ultimate weapon which can be synthesized after synthesizing all other items and have your items be all epoxied if he uses the move that pits a halo in your head go to your items thing the second he strikes immediately use an elixir and along with taboo sobic is normally a bode I am training to be awesome with Zelda because she's awesome but sonic dies because taboo is capable of inflicting high damage and extremely powerful launch attacks since sonic is a relatively light character genus afflicted terribly compared to others so is lucario which sucks because him sobic Zelda and captain falcon plus yoshi are my only good people gannondorf probably rocks he is extremely slow but has the same special moves as captain falcon bit he's super hard to launch because he's so heavy hope this helps you
Holy wow this guy is insane! I feel very proud of myself for beating him even though it tortured my soul. Just keep trying guys and you will feel a great deal of accomplishment when he is defeated.
This guy is number 1, because it took me 3 years to even get CLOSE to beating him. Still never beat him.
At level 100 with the ultamite wepon, with cure being at its very best and some of the best armour on Sora, he's nothing more than a pushover!V 18 Comments
Shao Khan should be much higher here. He was strong, powerful and almost unbeatable. I said "almost" because I beat him 3 times in MK 2. I used Kitana, Mileena and Scorpion. It looked like real Holiday cause he seemed so strong - Magnolia
Wow #34 This Should Be Like In top 5! I Us Kitana and Mileena I love them they're powerful and I kept dying because of his strength
Shao Kahn is unbelievably tough and should be much higher. It took me almost 50 tries when I first got the game!
In the old days he was very hard too beat.V 7 Comments
Whats really frustrating about it is you have to fight Metal Sonic in order to get to him and you have no rings which means all it takes is one hit and you die and then your forced to fight metal sonic again.
We can all tell that The Death Egg is a blatant ripoff of The Death Star from Star Wars.
What makes him so hard is that he does instant-kill attacks. One moment of bad aim, and you have to fight him all over again.
My first game was Sonic Classic Collection. It took me a while to get to the death egg zone, but I had no idea what I was in for. Took me about six months to actually beat this guy. Once you memorise how to attack him, it’s easy. I can now beat the whole stage in under 1:40.V 5 Comments
With all the attacks she has, she stumped me for a long time. Her having health absorbing hands didn't help.
The devil's reincarnation in video games is this monster. She has a ton of deadly attacks, and grows hands! The hands can kill you. Plus, she has a huge arsenal of attacks, and has two forms. Altogether she has 300 HP! The second form is invincible for a few turns. AGH! I hate this creep!
She gave me lots of hard times as a kid. But then I played through the game again got to the Shadow Queen and I was able to beat her first attempt!
How is the Shadow Queen above Cackletta's Soul? - gakiguruV 4 Comments
Realistically, Cackletta's Soul would be harder than many of the people up there. - gakiguru
Hard but should be much lower on the list
Queen Larsa IS harder, but this should be 2.
1hp per bro, and Cackletta deals the first hit. The question is, are you really prepared? If not, you have to redo the Bowletta fight, just to get to this point again. An endless cycle of futility. Are you ready?
Masked Devil is rather easy, but then the Jaquio. HOW I HATE THE JAQUIO. He spams homing fireballs, and then there's the TRUE final boss. You CANNOT HOLD BACK AT ALL.
And if you die against ANY of them, you have to go back to Stage 6-1. - MasterH
I witnessed these before being battled. If you lose, you have to go ALL THE WAY BACK! - gakiguru
Totally agree but mainly for the fireball shooting jaquio
The Jaquio was absolutely ridiculous. Jashin is also challenging, and if you die on either of them you need to go all the way back to 6-1!
Maybe it's not the hardest but I am adding it because it is extremely difficult and took me and my brother playing together like 3 years (not an exaggeration) to beat - TheInsomniac
266?! WHAT?! ALL THESE SONIC FANBOYS AND CASUALS RATE THE EASIEST BOSSES KNOWN TO MAN AND THIS GETS 266TH PLACE?! Let me elaborate this further. First off, you have a very fast and hard-hitting Knight, then you have a slow and even harder hitting executioner. You have to keep your attention and eyes on both of them or you're screwed. That's not the worst part: after one dies, the other gets buffed and fully healed! Any boss from Dark Souls deserves a spot in top 10 (save for Moonlight Butterfly, that was easy).
WHAT THE. THIS SITE IS INSANE a stupid cut out of King k rool is harder than these to. THis isn't the only time this site has been DUH there the weirdest games Superman 64 is number 1 Japan world cup hello LSD dream emulator I am bread
O&S are actually hard bosses, unlike a bunch of bosses in the top 10.
Any casul that thinks your average video game boss is hard, battle these Gankers.
I remember my first battle with this dynamic duo... third hardest fight I've done in gaming - SpiralcoreV 3 Comments
Not that hard if you use stone but if you get killed you must replay the true arena over to get to him. And you have limited healing items
Right after a hard boss and this boss starts with a black hole and then who knows what he will do next?
Hard and right after galacta knight as well, so if you fail, you go all the way back to the start of the true arena. And there is very limited healing supplies so it's even harder to get back to where you were. - CatsOMG
Very, very easy! - Mariomaster63V 4 Comments
Just getting to this boss is hard. You have to kill 2 knights (9 whips each), while dodging an army of Medusa heads. Once you get past them, if you're not already almost dead, you have to fight him while dodging all his scythes. Goid luck with that.
So annoying as hell
He's a pain, but try beating Galamoth without the lightning absorbing circlet or the talisman with a crap load of luck. Unless we're talking the death from the PS2 castlevania, then he was hell. So were some of the LOS bosses, especially the final DLC boss.
Actually to me this was a really easy boss, I think Smithy is harder, and he's still not that hard, just be all level 30, take down the crystals by weakness, I usually do lowest HP to most HP, but he's not that hard if you do it right.
THIS SHOULD BE ON TOP 10 IF NOT THE TOP 20! - Doge4lifeGaming
He has 12000 hp. Now use the logic.
Epic boss theme though.
YOU THINK THIS IS HARD? THE TRY FIGHTING WINGIL AND PRESA FROM TALES OF XILLA! JUST WINGUL ALONE HAS 22000 HP!
Tough ass and long fight... Had to get the comb regenerator ability to be able to beat this thing... Took me lots of tries aswel
Sorta hard, but Mr Patch and Weldar are harder.
Are you serious. I beat her on the first try. Without the comb generator. If you’re struggling, just get that.
Inbachi is what I consider to be one of the hardest, if not the hardest boss in video game history. Her attacks are nearly impossible to dodge, making most hardcore veterans having to use multiple continues, just to beat her. I'm actually surprised that we have a boss even harder than Queen Larsa (Mushihimesama Futari).
By comparison, it is (barely) possible to beat Queen Larsa without any misses (and maybe bombs used).
So, we all know that Tabuu (Super Smash Bros. Brawl) is like an easy opponent in comparison with Queen Larsa. Well, Queen Larsa is just like a tricky opponent in comparison with an insane boss known as Inbachi.
So, if Queen Larsa is extremely difficult, if not almost impossible to beat, then Inbachi is very close to being impossible to beat, which is why I consider her to be (one of) the hardest boss(es) in video game history.
Difficulty: Nearly Impossible - SamHalls2015
Inbachi and many other bosses from DoDonPachi SaiOuJou are nearly impossible. And many shooter hell games are, well. A gamers hell.
Inbachi, Queen Larssa, Zatsuza are to me the hardest bosses of all time. But I vote Inbachi because I want to help her beat some of the others higher on this list. - felispasta
OH MY GOD! HE IS THE HARDEST BOSS EVER! HE TOOK ME A YEAR TO BEAT! I BEAT HIM ONCE AND NEVER TRYING AGIAN!
Are people on this list dumb?! Most of the bosses here are cakewalks, especially this one.
Nothing compares to this boss in the Sonic franchise. Next to impossible.
One word... DifficultV 5 Comments
The hardest Gym Leader... Ever... Especially annoying if your strongest Pokemon is a Male an your other Pokemon are weak...
Her fat Miltank keeps rolling over my Quilava
Any moron who thinks this fight was easy obviously has never heard of the original Gold and Silver.
Heracross's Brick Break
Bayleef's Poison Powder + tons of potions
Arcanine's Sunny Day + Flamethrower
Goldenrod Store filled with OP TMs
Annoying, sure, but hard? - TheDancingGhost
So many hours of gameplay to kill it... It took what seem like forever. I am not going to fight this boss again... Too damn hard!... - Horrible_Username
The Biolizard isn't that hard though, especially when compared to other bosses on this list. - Rangaman
Sorry, but this guy was kinda easy. But still on the hard side
HARD AS HELL, but a good boss. Why is Tabu no. 1? He was so easyV 1 Comment
THE GUY IS EASY
Why is this here? This boss was easy.
This was easy.
Dark Bowser wasn't a problem, but it was fawful who was making me ragequit, with these ton of attacks, and he escapes Bowser in each 10-15 turns!
This battle oh my gawwd
Yep, Ghaleon is very hard, and also very annoying. He attacks twice when it's his turn, and he keeps saying "Time to die" over and over it gets so annoying. His attacks all are bad, but it is possible to negate the instant death spell! When he is holding some purple ball in his hands, he is about to use it, so have Alex use the White Dragon Protect spell (if you have the MP) and your party members won't die from it. And yeah, after the battle, play the ocarina, definitely. - NuMetalManiak
Has a crapton of HP, will constantly find ways to stall you, uses an attack that INSTANTLY KILLS one of your party members, and at the end, pulls an I Wanna Be The Guy. If you didn't have the ocarina and save, you would HAVE TO FACE GHALEON ALL OVER AGAIN. - MasterH
A lot of HP, spams projectiles that CAN'T be absorbed, moves around completely insane, and had an insanely difficult level before it. - MasterH
He is damn hard on normal mode, can't imagine what he is like on hard
Okay who says this boss was hard complete idiots with no sense of hard because I beat him on first try with titan difficulty also vergil from dm3 easy
SO MANY WAYS TO SCREW YOU OVER. he can always hit you, and kills you VERY easily if you didn't get the armor upgrade.
Also this boss is called sigma wolf.
Try it without upgrade and tell me...
Try it without armadillo weapon
Try this withot heart tanks
Whoever made this list has probably made a list out of the bosses in these select games, because what about raid,s or bosses from classic NES games, all of these fights are difficult but, should actually be up in the hundreds.
This battle is so easy
He's easy I only died to him once. - Adambalm
Why did Arisel dremmuur not come firstV 1 Comment
This is a bit like marx soul. But it depends on your level. Marx soul depends on your ability and skill with it.
If you die in this fight, you have to restart the pit of trials all over again
Bonetail is so damn easy. Getting to him, however, may be a bit of a challenge.
Only boss I've never even come close to beating.
This guy is crazy hard to beat
You're lucky if you hit him
Wiggler is mad easy I beat him my first try!
This is best boss
This guy is monstrous. All his attacks can do major damage, while you have very few weapons that can actually hurt him, the best being your fists. When he goes down the first time, he comes back in a matter of seconds and can kill you in one hit now; the only way to beat him this time is to grab the Dip Cannon, equip it, and hold down B to send him flying away. Even with this knowledge, he's a beast, ask anyone!
It took me what seemed like over 1, 000, 000 tries. It's very hard and for those of you out there who are looking for a real challenge, I recommend that you get minecraft and download the Aether I mod to fight her.
I killed her like 1~2 minutes. Not hard to kill at all.
You mean the Daredevil come for this then he is impossible just get this game and try to beat him on Daredevil comet mode
Just try beating him on Daredevil mode... Then you WILL vote for this. I am sure of it...
This guy isn't very hard unless it's a daredevil comet.
Even in daredevil mode, he is easy if you know the strats - TheInsomniacV 1 Comment
If you mess up once you might as well start over
Goro is just brutal he does a ridicules amount of damage it took me several times just to beat him, he was the first in a long line of brutally difficult boss battles in fighting games. - egnomac
A total pain in the ass never been able to beat him.
He's actually pretty easy for me. I just had to work out my strategy.
After 2 weeks I couldn't beat him. So instead I always dodge or jump then attack.
I didn't think it was that difficult. Just stay on the shore and keep spraying.
Why Super Dimentio? He's an easy boss.
! I love the boss and the music! It took a while, but you know what was harder? Count Bleck and Shadoo!
This guy is mind numbingly cheap. Just look up a Worst Bosses list on YouTube, look for one by someone named The Autarch, and the horror and rage will become evident.
This irritating little prick is just plain unfair.
Jaspers window will destroy you
It's been 10+ years since Vanilla, and this old god is still my favourite. I remember how much my guild celebrated once he was hit with the nerf that actually made him beatable, and we celebrated even harder once we actually beat him. 10/10, can't wait for WoW Classic.
