The hardest of the hard final bosses. Who you got?

I think this motherfucker right here qualifies. You'll never die to him from having your HP go to zero since you'll fall into an instant death pit long before that can happen.

all those castlevania bosses where way to hard for me. i can remember in 3 that i once managed to get there, i placed maybe one hit before it was all over. Later i learned about second and third form. young me would have had a panic attack if i continued trying. i just gave up. i only beat it later with a rom save state deal.

>> No.2139945

The Wily Capsule in Mega Man 7 is the hardest of all Wily Capsule fights.

Sigma's second form in Mega Man X5.

Necron in Final Fantasy 9 is really hard if you don't have the proper abilities on to be immune to status shit, especially like Frozen and Stop.

The final boss in Tales of Eternia is pretty damn hard, or at least I thought so.

Mr.X in Streets of Rage 1 and 2. I'd imagine there's people here who might have no problem with him, but I always found him pretty hard. It's part of what makes beating the game every time so fucking satisfying. Fuck him and his gun.

Hmm...that's all I can think of for now.

Mr. X wasn't a problem for me when I was a kid. I always had problems with the twins in SoR1 though, took me a bunch of lives to power through them.

Death Bringer in Golden Axe for Genesis was tough as hell though. I played as the Dwarf, so he used the girl's top-level spell and it utterly destroyed me whenever he cast it.

Pic related is one of the toughest I've encountered, though it will be a couple years before it's /vr/.

Why would you not have those abilities though? Almost everything else is worthless, since you'll kill every enemy in 2 hits anyway and every boss in fewer than 10. FF9 had some of the most disappointingly weak bosses in any jrpg. Except for that one boss in the finale that casted LV5 Death. That shit took me unawares.

Yeah, most bosses that are hard in FF are ones that just surprise you with off the wall stuff that wasn't in another encounter. Once you get that surprise, and figure out how to handle it, it's just back to slamming your dick into it's face.

I don't think they had intended for the bosses to be hard at any point, though.

I'm playing FF4 right now, and the only bad guys who have given me trouble were surprise encounters after opening chests. Even then, I just use Stop and mash A to defeat them. Bosses are pretty much the same; cast Slow, mash A until victory. As someone who typically goes to Megaten for my RPGs, it's really different from what I'm used to.

Tyr from the first game is a similar deal. You need the Agni dragon form to even reach her, then use it to wipe the floor with her in a slugfest where you can't really lose. But if you for some reason don't, she's a ridiculously fat HP sponge that is going to pummel you with huge multi-target attacks for two hours until you're out of healing items and die.

Granted, fighting her without using Agni is entirely voluntary (if you've reached her in the first place, you have Agni), but if you choose not to, she can be a beast. The first time I've beat her without dragon transformations was very satisfying in the end, one of the most intense JRPG boss fights I've experienced.

Yep, I believe the trick was hitting him right when he lands on the floor after jumping. He leans down a bit, and that's right when you can hit him with Knuckles, otherwise, Knux's jump is not high enough to reach the mecha's belly, which is the weak point, and you get hit by its claws.

absolute bullshit if I've ever seen it

Zamza, yes, I also think when fighting him you also have to deal with one or two Jet, I fucking hate flying enemies in beat em ups

The actual "boss fight" is just figuring out a rather simple puzzle, but fuck this entire god damn level. So many vores and shamblers, barely any ammo.

Jet's incarnations in SoR2 are absolutely nothing compared to this one. Three flying fuckers on the screen at all times and they can dash up from one plane to the next to grab you at will for unavoidable damage.

Jet's AI is completely erratic, too, considering he can cancel out of ALL OF HIS MOVES, FROM ANY DIRECTION, meaning he never has to commit to a pattern. Pretty much, he'll hit you when he wants to, and if you're lucky, you can get a few jabs in before his goons show up throw you. I mean, fucking look at this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-_0qKC01-9s

It's a challenging boss fight, to be sure, but a maddening one.

When you are a particularly bullshit enemy on a game known for being bullshity as fuck, you know you are doing something right.

The corridor is really easy man, just jump and throw holy water at the knights. If you have III they die in one hit.

Well of course the fight is maddening when you use the bullshit version of the game that makes all enemies 10x harder, AND you use the weakest character with the worst moves in the entire series.

Zamza is easy. Do a back jump when he stands up, and he will try (and fail) following you with an uppercut. Then wail on him immediately.

>most of the difficulty there comes from the fight being three hours long though
Took me five.

I did it when I was a kid. Jesus, as Sonic you can just hit him anytime his arms are lined up, but as Knux you gotta wait until he's crouching and hope you don't fall into him and die.

Didn't knew it. Every character should have their clothes ripped off if the fight ends with a special, it's a nice touch AOF had, like the faces getting injuries while the fight goes on.

That video perfectly expresses why I hate SoR. What I really hate is not exclusive to it, but all beat em ups I think do this, is you're confined to the screen but the enemies can drift off-screen at will yet still hit you and you can't even see them. I hate when games play cheap like that. If I'm stuck inside invisible walls they should be too.

Having shitloads of HP =/= difficult boss

Sure it takes ages to kill Yiazmat but he isn't exactly hard, need any notable preparation and you are aware that you can actually leave the area, restore your HP/MP at the save crystal and return to continue the battle afterwards?

Ahh, Breath of Fire.. This brings back many good memories.

I read many years ago that Tyr IS Myria, and Evans is her son.

It was something like this: After Tyr is defeated in BoF I, she gives birth and begins a five centuries long hibernation. One or two hundred years after her defeat, Habaruku, a high ranking psychic demon, founds a religion and uses his powers to manipulate and spread his religion around the world, brainwashing all of humanity, until nearly everyone is worshipping "St. Eva". As we know he succeeded and this was all a major plot to use the energy from all the worshipping, prayers, devotion and sacrifices to nurture Evans, turning him into a mighty god and bringing him from the bottom of abyss to take over the world for the demons, but the plan ultimately fails and Evans is destroyed. A few hundred years later another deity, under the name of Myria and the form of an angel appears out of the blue and promising eternal peace she begins taking control over human hearts, turning them against the dragons and starting a war. In this war, many human lives are lost but the deity's plan succeeds and the dragons are now extinct... or not. Myria, is none other than the Tyr, who awakened and returned to the mortal realm, thirsty for revenge against the dragons.

I read this in a very dedicated Bof website and i don't dismiss this theory as it has very valid points and evidences.

That only happens in SOR3. In SOR2, you can damage off-screen enemies too - either directly, or by throwing stuff at them (weapons, other blokes, etc).

The mid-bosses for Tekken 2 are real pains in the ass. Its like pressing an attack button equals pressing the duck button for the computer as they dodge pretty much everything leaving you open to get lit up.

SNK bosses are just the devil incarnate.

Do you mean from FF6? Cast life3 on everyone you don't want to die, and kill him dead. The only bosses I ever had issues with in FF6 were Punaba(or whatever his name was) and the tentacles inside Figaro castle. And that's because my characters were all horribly underleveled and the characters(except Edgar) were all almost completely spell-less.

Triple Shot Cross or Axe work surprisingly well. Grab one or the other and farm upgrades off of enemies. Best place to farm would probably be right outside his room, off the medusa heads. I have yet to beat him with the dagger or whip only.

Hardest RPG bossish battle is the 64 Demon Lords or whatever they are called in Might and Magic 2. I've never been able to beat them. I don't know of anyone who has. They all have spells that not only kill your people, but eradicate them, which can only be cured by a trip to the local temple, which you won't be doing until you finish the battle. There is no way to prevent their spells from hitting, even with maxed out stats. I have edited my save file to have the ultimate party. They killed 27, then died. I don't know if they can be beaten.
