The damn nameless king in dark souls 3 when I first found him gave me so much trouble. So many people had trouble with other souls bosses that I flew right through, but this guy and the scholar of the first sin in dark souls 2 were my kryptonite. I actually had to ask Pluto I believe to come help me beat the scholar of the first sin.

Nameless king I beat by myself but I had to switch my characters stats around twice to find a build that worked for me against him.

Edit: oh.. And ornstein and smough

Probably Mannimarco in Oblivion.

Anyone who has played Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines will cringe when I mention Griffith Park :D

Don't you mention that game or I'll have to play it again for the 100th time!

I found out the werewolf could be defeated though, the last time I played it. The first time I didn't even try, being a malkavian and all. I figured hiding was the wiser choice :laugh:

Now I remembered another character that wasn't exactly a boss but kicked ass just as much, if not more. Anyone who has played Dynasty Warriors 4 may not remember some of the characters, but will surely remember Lu Bu at the battle of Xiapi :)

Ah yes, here's a guy worth mentioning.

The boss in the sewers (Area 2) and I think Area 10 as well in Bionic Commando : Rearmed on Super Hard. The fast flashes of light combined with the memory pattern and requiring precise inputs to counter made this guy easily one of the hardest (definitely top 3 for me) bosses I've ever faced. Truth is, I gave up and never beat him.

Yeah, he svcks to fight.

If I wasn't so freaking stubborn I probably would've too. But I really wanted the satisfaction of beating him and I'm really competitive. I must have died at least 20 times. It was partly such a cheap fight with how many times he could attack in a row and when he'd use his most powerful attacks.

I wasn't too invested in the game but would have liked to beat it. After 10 times losing (several times only getting off one attack) I gave up and went to another game. It was a friends so I never got to go back to it.

Faust from legend of dragoon. He's an optional boss that you need to gather all 50 stardust to even fight (stardust are collectable things scattered across the game hidden in the background of the maps).

I've never beat him in over 15 years. I'm doing another playthrough right now and am all set up to fight and beat him this time. I've focused this whole playthrough on beating him.

I remember he used to kill my team before I even got a turn to move. This time I've grinded so hard, I've got everybody's final addition (you need to max out all their other additions to unlock it) and collected some magic resistant gear to beat this guy.

Definitely Mannimarco from Oblivion.

If anyone remembers the old NeoGeo arcade cabinets, those fighting games had some way overpowered bosses that could keep a large crowd busy pumping quarters trying to beat the boss. King of fighters was notorious.

Interesting how many of these "bad bosses" are from older games...

Just a small "fyi", FF XII characters will be "gimped", because you'll have to choose a specific class for every character. Meaning, we don't get to cast reverse, shell, protect, haste, curaga, brave, and berserk by any character we want to, and those who will be able to will then be locked to specific weapon types, like staves. :D It'll be fun!

For me it was Dark Souls' tutorial boss. :P In my defense I didn't play any Souls games before that, and I didn't realize he can (and should) be avoided the first time around. XD
