    Ever had that one boss you could never beat, or took ages to do so? Here's the place to rant about them, and maybe tell an epic tale of how you overcame them (if you eventually did)!

    For me, the nightmare was Tabuu, that final blue death angel boss from the SSBB Story Mode. This was back before I got into competitive Smash, so I had no idea how to avoid his instakill attacks properly. I spent half a day trying to beat him and eventually got lucky after using a bunch of heavy characters that could survive the damage/knockback Tabuu inflicted. Many years later I came back with a vengeance and thrashed him. It felt good.

    The boss that annoys me the most is the one I'm stuck on in Dark Souls. Ornstein and Smough. These two are your basic combo of small and fast + big and slow, nothing special. But this is Dark Souls, so of course Ornstein throws lightning at you, and Smough has a very difficult to dodge attack, and the best part? When one dies, the other goes super saiyan. Ornstein gets bigger when you kill Smough, so do not kill Smough first because now he's big, powerful, AND fast. Smough gets lightning. That's it, but it makes his butt-slam an aoe. Still have to overcome these two.

    Two annoying bosses I hate dealing with are Plague Knight (boss) ad Shovel Knight (boss). Plague knight will never stop jumping around, and Shovel Knight loves abusing the hell out of the Phase Locket and Chaos Spheres.

    Sans from Undertale. And Tabuu on intense mode from Super Smash Bros Brawl. Those guys are seriously hard. Especially Sans. One would think that a guy with just one hp would be easy to beat, but that no.

    Ghetsis, It took me sooooo long to beat him, either I lost against N or him. I beat N a few dozen times, but I only beat Ghetsis twice, and one time my game cartridge came out. It was a regular old 3DS

    Captain Brineybeard from Cuphead. I can get to his last phase but it gets to the point that there's so much going on it's nigh impossible to avoid some of this attacks when you're crouching underneath that laser.
    It doesn't help that I'm going for a run of all A minuses or above.

    If you don't max out your damage to at least 9999 in Final Fantasy X, then you're going to have the worst time ever with Sin's mouth. I believe it one shots to the point of a Game Over even if you have Auto-Life if you take too long to defeat it.

    Thank goodness I did!

    The 6 man Destiny raids all end with a boss battle that I find can be difficult. Everyone has to work together and be on the same page otherwise it goes back to the beginning. Pretty easy to get over early in the fight, but when you're about to finally defeat the boss and someone slips up...yeah it can get pretty frustrating. It's a good thing the loot and rewards for beating the raids and raid lairs are well worth the trouble.

    Most of the time it's not the boss that makes it unbeatable, it's the team coordination, communication and a lack of understanding the mechanics. The raid bosses difficult for me are those ones that require a lot of teamwork as I often find myself with teammates who can't do their job and my own job is specific that I can't multitask on my end.

    Destiny's raid boss that I found to be overly difficult due to the mechanics and few competent players who could complete them was: Oryx the Taken King in the King's Fall raid.
    Destiny 2's raid boss proving troublesome right now is Val Ca'uor, the final boss of the Spire of Stars.

    Probably one of the most infuriating bosses I've faced recently is the final boss Cackletta's Soul from Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions. I mean, I was aware of how hard this boss was gonna be before going into it, but she still gave me a really hard time. Especially with her rotating arms. Ugh...

    The Mystery dungeon games are known for their difficulty, but so far, nothing compares to Darkrai from Explorers of Sky. I fought him and fought up to him so many times that I can't remember. It started to get to the point where I was ridiculously over-leveled and still couldn't beat him. In my playthrough of Explorers of time, I gave up on beating him and used cheat codes to max out my health and continuously replenish it. With those cheats, it took me 7 tries before I beat him.

    The actual fight is pretty hard but not that hard if you know what your doing. What makes it so hard is that the entire level is an escort mission where you have to escort Cresselia all the way to the top and have her fight with you. The problem is, she isn't a partner but a guest making everything way harder because she doesn't gain levels and can easily be one shot by anything super effective. Over my time trapped in the dark crater, I learned of the IQ system and tried my best to raise it.

    After over ten years of not being able to beat him I finally beat him two days ago. I only managed to defeat him while using quick seeds, while being horribly over leveled and being lucky enough that Cresselia's health went into the red and my BodyGuard IQ went into effect and I took all of the hits for her. Once that happened, I just hit the Pokémon with health recovery moves like giga-drain and synthesis and won the day. Let me just say it. I hate escort missions.

    One boss you'd hate: Twin Princes.

    They are the current bane of my Dark Souls game as the first prince teleports and also hits with the force of a tanker. In the higher cycles you'd be lucky to get a hit in as he rarely stays still

    In Kingdom Hearts II, I maxed out Sora's level and the levels of all his drive forms plus had good equipment and whatnot. Then I challenged Sephiroth and it still took me will over a dozen tries before I managed to luck out and beat him. And I still haven't been able to last more than a few seconds against him in Kingdom Hearts I.

    In Sonic Advance 3, the 5th Zone (Twinkle Snow) had me stuck for years. Instead of a side scroller like most of the Sonic Advance bosses, it was a vertical scroller. Upper platforms would stay temporarily before falling onto Eggman's robot. If you fail to get to a new platform in time, you'll fall with the broken one and sometimes even instantly die (if you don't hit Eggman you'll fall straight down). And during this Eggman would shoot out a large spiky ball/mace that could reach the top of the screen. I'm pretty sure I ended up using Tails to just constantly fly up out of reach.

    Just... bosses in Megaman Zero... good lord the difficulty on just the first bosses is high. I haven't been able to get past the second boss so far, and I've barely even progressed through the game.

    For me there's this one boss in Lair I could just never beat no matter how many times I tried, I don't even remember the boss' name anymore I just remember the fight being ridiculous since and the boss always getting me in the end. Didn't help the motion controls on the PS3 worked against me the entire time.
