    OK so there's a game villain tournament thread but I don't see it as the same thing. Especially since you're not supposed to post e.g. comic book villains that appear in games there etc.

    I searched "Boss" but didn't see any thread about this.

    So yeah, what are your favourite boss battles in any game?

    For me, many of the boss fights in Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions are up there (Electro, Hammerhead, Juggernaut, Goblin) as well as Anti-Venom in EoT (though I haven't played it :/ )

    Also, the boss battles in the first three Crash Bandicoot games are some of the best too (Cortex in any game, Tiny in any game, Mr. Trophy etc.).

    Same goes for the God of War bosses (Ares, the fat Medusa in GoW2, Zeus in GoW2, the Sister of Fate, the Colossus of Rhodos or what he's called, Poseidon, Hades, Hermes, etc.)

    There are many more but these are the ones at the top of my head.

    I don't really have any boss battles that stand out to me. I've honestly never been the biggest fan of them. I know that may seem weird but everytime one appears it's sort of like: Great, here we go.

    I do enjoy them though, it's just something I have no problem living without.

    Every single boss battle in Ultimate Ninja Storm 2. So damn fun.
    Every Colossus in SoTC.
    Every giant boss battle in the God of War series.

    But my favorite is still Dante vs Vergil in the rain, at the top of the tower, in DMC3.

    Am I the only one who circled around until Vergil and Dante met in the middle?

    Yep, i agree.

    Altho one that does stick out for me, was the battle with "Darth Maul" in The Force Unleashed. Some of the animations were really cool during that battle. I also love QTE's so that helps.

    I probably did that. Trying to make the fight more climatic.

    Raining atmosphere and theme do take their toll, this one is a major favorite
