Top 10 Most Epic Boss Battles

The Top Ten

1 Ganondorf - Zelda Ocarina of Time Ganondorf - Zelda Ocarina of Time Ganon (Referred to as Ganondorf in human form) is a fictional character and the central antagonist of Nintendo's Legend of Zelda series. He is a power-hungry Gerudo who possesses the Triforce of Power and aims to conquer Hyrule with the remaining Triforce parts.

How is this not the best? Ascending the castle, hearing ganondorf showing off his organ skills, then an epic cutscene, the guy rips the room to pieces, then crumbles the castle and transforms into a huge ass beast... How is this not the best?

This is by far the most epic boss battle of all time

This game with Farcry 3's engine would be unbeatable. This game is the best in the world already, and with Farcry 3's engine the graphics would be amazing. Making the Shadow Temple much scarier and Ganon look like a minotaur with swords. The A.I. would be much smarter and know when to attack with more precision and block better. - TheGrammarPolice

2 Rawk Hawk - Paper Mario The Thousand Year Door

The best. End of story. - HeavyDonkeyKong

3 Marx Soul - Kirby Super Star Ultra

It was either him or tabu, but Marx takes the trophy.

Marx Soul is my favorite nintendo character along with Skorupi and Pit

4 Red - Pokemon Gold / Silver / HeartGold / SoulSilver

Cool and epic than any video game boss, just listen to his music (The most epic music ever! ). - mewtwo1

Red is number one of the best role playing game bosses and the most epic one

Yes, because it's the best and the most epic video game boss battle ever!

I loved red

In kirby's adventure, he was INSANELY hard to beat, so hard in fact that in the next remake of the game [kirby's nightmare in dreamland] they had to dramatically make his boss fight a lot easier.

You're fighting a god in outer space while he wields the 2 most powerful weapons in the game. If that doesn't convince you, the song used in the fight will.
