Default Your most HATED boss battle

I'm just wondering aboout anyone else. I don't mean necessarily mean the hardest, the one that got under your skin the most. I just ran through Farcry again (man that game still rocks ) and fighting crowe at the end of the boat level just makes me want to slam my head into a wall to get out of the misery. It's not THAT hard! Just...well, how about everyone else?

Dead or Alive 3 final boss... cheap, unbalanced and just stupid.

But If I had to choose due to being just plain tough (and not cheap) it would have to be Lavos in Chrono Trigger. That MFer was hard as hell even compared to RPGs today.

Well, probably just getting to Noob Saibot in Mortal Kombat (the original).

Double-flawless + fatality AFTER you have played one time through. And you can't use block even once during your round or you won't win

But, that was the ultimate goal wasn't it

Goro sucked compared to Noob Saibot in the game.

One of (maybe the last?) bosses in the PS1 game "One" was just ridiculous. It was a pretty large creature and you basically had 2 upper platforms and a lower platform to stand on. The annoying thing is that his "health" system was the same as yours, where he recovers health when he hits you the same way that you regain health when you hit enemies. So basically, most of the fight is spent as a tug-of-war with your health going back and forth, but later on his fights get so cheap and he begins fires lasers along one of the two platform levels that are almost impossible to avoid causing you to take damage AND him to recover. I mean really, I don't mind a challenging fight, but it just got aggravating.

I'm lucky I don't have a wireless controller for my PS2, because Dante must Die mode would really push me into putting the thing through a window.

Although I'm not at Virgil 3 yet in DMD, having to fight the 3 bosses in a row in the demon world is quite evil.
