The Contenders: Page 2

21 Shodan (System Shock) Shodan (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

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

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

29 Flandre Scarlet (Touhou Series)

Maybe not the most iconic boss of all time, but definitely the most well-known character of the Touhou series. She's adorable yet chaotic, with a catchy boss theme that has invaded so many fandoms on YouTube. Plus, who doesn't love a good bullet heck boss? (Except for the one playing it, I guess.) *walks off humming UN Owen was Her*

30 02 (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.

31 Nightmare (Metroid Fusion)
32 The Hydra (God of War)
33 Jenova (Final Fantasy XII)
34 Kefka Palazzo (Final Fantasy) Kefka Palazzo (Final Fantasy)
35 Donkey Kong (Mario Series) Donkey 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.

36 Albert Wesker (Resident Evil Series) Albert 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

37 Bob The Killer Goldfish
38 Sephiroth (Final Fantasy)

Ah yes, the fangirls just love him.

39 The Spider (Limbo)
40 Majora (The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask)
