Hard [optional] bosses rock!


lucifer.jpgYou gotta love optionally hard bosses. For some magnificent reason, a majority of optional bosses turn out to be harder than the game’s actual final boss; and sometimes there isn’t a reason behind it. Some of us who love a good challenge like nothing more than to embrace these hard bosses not only to see how difficult they are but also how far we can get in those fights.

Ian C. of QJ.net wrote a blog about eight optional bosses that we hated so much yet loved to fight. It’s an interesting read that warrants your attention, but there is one boss he mentions that I particularly didn’t find hard at all, that boss being Culex. For some reason, I found Culex in Super Mario RPG to be pretty easy; but I guess that’s because I was sort of strong in the end-game and had most skills for Geno, Mario, and Peach. The rest of the bosses I agree whole heartedly with him, especially the Behemoth from Blood Will Tell. I literally had a field day spending about two hours executing that 48 hit combo perfectly…what memories.


As for what boss Ian should have really mentioned, Lucifer from Shin Megami Tensei and Penance from Final Fantasy X International say hello. Read the blog and determine whether you agree or disagree. Also, which eight optional bosses would you consider to be the hardest in the many games you’ve played in your lifetime?
