What's the most difficult/frustrating boss you've ever faced in a video game?

Does it count if the frustration comes from having to watch a cutscene every time you lose?

Pernicious 3243601

Recently it would be Tomomo from 100% orange juice on her level where she is allowed to cheat.

This bastard from DK64. I hear they're re-releasing DK64 on WiiU April 16th so I can try going after him again.

Can't think of anything specific, but bosses in character-action (hack-and-slash) games where the boss has an infinitely regenerating team of baddies to help him/her fight you. I'm just speculating, but it almost feels like the developers spent all this time develop this boss, and then when they were testing it they went "uh oh, this boss we made isn't very difficult is it? Throw some minions in there as a distraction, that'll be good enough". Just seems really lazy to me.

I'm not 100% sure but off the top of my head, this motherfucker right here comes to mind.

Not that guy. I got him first try.

I'm going to say Justice from the original Guilty Gear.

>Not that guy. I got him first try.

Calling bullshit unless you somehow knew you were only supposed to use the batclaw and strike three times.

I mean you literally can't counter some of his attacks in the final phase and he is faster and stronger than you even on the lower difficulties, how could you be prepared for that on the first try?

Batman is prepared for everything.

But Toybox, Sweetie is not Batman. He(she?) was PLAYING as Batman in a VIDEO GAME.

can't think of any off the top of my head honestly and yeah i agree Deathstroke wasn't that hard, he was challenging but i still beat him on my first go

Jetstream Sam.

But then I managed to beat him eventually.

Now I just need to work on Armstrong. I pretty much got him figured out, it's just I can't seem to line up my blade right when he throws parts of EXCELUS at me. Otherwise I'd tear him a new asshole.

Gill from Street Fighter Third Strike
Jupitar King from Metal Slug 3
Duke Nukem 64 Final Boss
House of the Dead 2 - Magician Boss
The Binding of Isaac - Gurdo
Marvel vs Capcom - Onslaught
Resident Evil 4 - Saddler worse boss fight ever

Ornstein and Smough - Dark Souls
King K. Rool - Dankey Kang Cauntry
The Ten Commandments of Moses - Metal Slug 3
Megaman X - Sigma Battle
Turok 2 - Mother Boss
Resident 4 - Verdugo Boss Aka Sadler's Right hand
Brutal Legend - Doviculus

I remember it was close, but I got him. I play on normal. I do remember he liked to counter a bunch, but he wasn't that bad. Honestly, it was awhile ago... I remember something I was doing kept getting me hit, so I stopped doing whatever it was. He'd go into some counter pattern, but I could counter all his counters too, so it was a bit like dancing. And there was something about not fighting him on the edge of the room, because he'd throw you or something. I just kept trying different things until I found what worked and then turned the fight around on him. Is he honestly supposed to be hard? I thought it was just a cool little fight.
I had marathoned the other Batmans leading up to it, so maybe I was just on or something, counter and dodgewise.

Also, Sweeties don't lie, sir. That's very important. Honesty is an element of harmony.

>Megaman X
Oh, what about X3. There's one that gave me nightmares. Tiny little hitbox jumping around....

Heavy Mole 3246088

Some of the bosses in Zelda II get pretty insane if you play it on hard mode. I think I had a fight with a blue iron knuckle that lasted over a half hour.

Heavy Mole 3246090

That was a weird difficulty spike in that game.

You know what will take care of a small hit box? A sword.

Most annoying Mini-boss fight was dark link in ocarina of time. How many bosses do you know that will make fun of you by standing on your sword?

I never liked X3 as much. Just didn't like the boss rosters.
X4 the terrible voice acting aside. Had more interesting bosses.
The final boss being a bit frustrating with the scythe bs

Probably some King of Fighters end boss bullshit. SNK Boss Syndrome is a term for a reason.

Deadpool from Xmen Origins: Wolverine.

It was a pretty good game up until that point.
