Top 10 Most Epic & Amazing Boss Fights in Modern Gaming


Opening our list of Whatoplay’s Top 10 Epic
and Amazing Boss Fights is Omega Flowey from Undertale For a game that lets you take control of a
kid under the confines of the Underground, you expect to see a gleam of innocence and
hope in the game’s story. Then you encounter a friendly flower, teaching
you the basics and what the game is suppose to look like as you progress deeper into it. Little did you know this Flower is insane
in the membrane. It’s either killed or be killed as this
demonic little flower serves as the game’s main antagonist on both Neutral and True Pacifist
ending. He transforms into an even more horrendous
form with his Omega Form and boy, oh, boy it’s not beautiful to look at…and, oh
my god, it’s insanely difficult. With the help of your friends, he gets defenseless;
he even tries to break the fourth wall by breaking the game. But it doesn’t stop you from putting an
end to this crazy flower once and for all. Kill or be killed, right? He just can’t understand. On the 9th spot is Liquid Ocelot from Metal
Gear Solid 4: Guns Of The Patriots You know you’re a big Metal Gear fan when
all you think about are the memes that this boss fight delivered. From the brother-to-brother fight to the screaming
men with no upper body clothing injecting drugs to their bodies… This is the one final battle to determine
who is the best Snake there is. Albeit with a bit of an awkward feeling. The sins of their father has led them to engage
in a bloody hand-to-hand skirmish. In one final showdown, two of the greatest
characters in Metal Gear history have stood together to create one of the most memorable
scenes in gaming history. It kinda reminds me of that epic anime fight
between Spike and Vincent in Cowboy Bebop: the Movie. With flashbacks after flashbacks, quotable
quotes and a couple of iconic songs from the franchise. It is an epic conclusion between these two
characters that have been fighting for decades. Number 8 in the list is Olgierd von Everec
from The Hearts of Stone Expansion of The Witcher III: Wild Hunt (Ol-geerd von Evereck) In the Witcher’s first expansion, Hearts
of Stone, he is tasked to find a man named Olgierd. A man so mysterious and full of swag that’s
on par with Geralt’s. Most players miss this boss fight if they’re
not angry enough to act on what this guy did to that poor guy’s house. For raging players who made a terrible YET
crazy choice, they are pitted in a grand swordfight against Olgierd. He’s agile, crazy and he’s really, really,
powerful. The sight of a burning house, good background
music, and his entire band of brothers watch you two engage in a clash of badasses. Luckily, or through sheer grit, Geralt deals
a blow, then a slash that nearly decapitates Olgierd. That should have ended the duel… but nope. Olgierd is immortal. He grabs for his severed head and snap it
back in place like a Lego. It’s one of the game’s twists that leads
to a series of even more beautiful insanity. In 7th place is Xemnas from Kingdom Hearts
II (Zem-nas) We’re talking about Zebra Xemnas. His ultimate final form. This boss fight is a perfect balance of fast-paced
action, quick time events and those oh so familiar grand metaphysical speeches. With the help your BFF Riku, defeat this boss
and keep him from achieving his final goal to make Kingdom Hearts a reality. In this glorious battle against one of the
most memorable antagonists in Kingdom Hearts’ history, soar above skyscrapers, dodge his
red laser beams, and team-up with Riku. Xenmas’ dual lightsabers are a pain in the
ass. This boss fight marks the beginning of the
end of Xehanort’s goal of ridding the world of light. Number 6 is First Colossi from The Shadow
Of The Colossus For a game that has Boss Fights in every scenario,
we can’t get enough on how Shadow Of the Colossus presents their towering titans. Among the 16 colossus, we had to pick one. You start off as a lone wanderer with your
trusty steed and a dying girl at your hands. This sets the game’s story and you are tasked
to eliminate these giants in order to save the poor girl’s soul. The game’s ending reveals a shocking twist
but we’ll keep that surprise just for you guys. Okay, the first boss fight is, by far, one
of the most memorable experiences to PS2 players. It not only introduces you the scale of what
this game offers, but it also gives you a good feeling that it’s gonna be good. You scale throughout the body of this monster
to find its weak spot, and give him a good stab in the head. This has wowed players due to its stunning
graphics and emotional story. Number 5 is Vergil from The Devil May Cry
Series We’re trying to point out that this part
of the list contains two versions of one spectacular boss fight. First, we talk about the battle with this
dude on Devil May Cry 3. The Sons of Sparda are two crazy brothers
in a sibling rivalry that happens to affect our world. The insane bloodbath between these two immortal
demons is eternal, no one wins and no one dies. Bullets fly around every corner and swords
spark like fires from the depths of hell. Coupled with a one good soundtrack, it’s
a brilliant boss fight to play and watch. Now, to the rebooted DmC, less-edgy Dante
and Vergil ends the game with a battle of differing views. After teaming up to defeat the evil Mundus,
the siblings show their sickest demon forms to finally stop the mess they’ve put the
world into. #SiblingGoals
Fourth is The End from the Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater We were a bit conflicted on who to pick between
Snake’s encounters with the Cobra Unit. The Fear was good, The Sorrow was weird, The
Pain was stingy, The Fury was fiery, but The End? The end gave us hours and hours of sneaking
and crawling into the soviet jungle. What’s funny is that there are numerous
ways to finish this game with little effort. Gamers can use these tricks to end the mission
quickly but let’s talk about the REAL BOSS FIGHT. The End is the greatest Marksman of the Cobra
Unit and yes, this old man is in fact deadly. One little move around the bushes and you’re
good as dead. To defeat this guy, track his heat signatures
and sneak behind him to seize him. Or you can engage in a Sniper fight. If you’re up for it. Third is Senator Armstrong from Metal Gear
Rising: Revengeance This game had some of the best boss fights
we’ve ever played. The Desperado are a group of slick mercenaries
that tries to rid the world of philosophy by using war as a business to end war as a
business. It was difficult to pick between them so we
gave you this guy… These baddies are led by the fictional Senator
of America: Senator Armstrong. His campaign to become the next President
of the United States takes him to a whole new level of batshi* craziness. With a speech that clearly sums up America’s
culture and making America Great Again (Sounds familiar?), Raiden gets pissed and faces this
guy head on. In an explosive final fight, The Senator uses
his powerful NANOMACHINES to stop Raiden from ruining his plans. The fight did end with him sliced and cut
to pieces. Poor guy. Second in the list is Poseidon from God of
War III Kratos’ ascend to Mount Olympus is blocked
by the Great God of the Seas: Poseidon. Climbing together with his newfound Titan
allies, it’s an adventure of doom and gloom as the Olympian God summons his pet monster
to stop Kratos from reaching the top. Looks like he underestimated Kratos. With the aide of the leader of the Titans,
Gaea, Kratos outmaneuvers Poseidon’s tactics and stole his protective body from him. As a result, Kratos beats the mighty God to
a pulp and finally poked both his eyes out. With the death of Poseidon, floods and raging
waves engulf the planet because duh, he’s the God of the Seas. Did we mention that this was the game’s
first boss? That’s good placement right there. Before we reveal the number one, here are
some worthy boss fights that deserve mentioning: 11 Dragon Slayer Ornstein and Smough (Dark
Souls) Plan your moves carefully and decide who to
kill first because these two creatures are a pain in the ass. 12 Archdemon (Dragon Age Origins) Your first adventure in the world of Dragon
Age ends with a life-changing battle between Man and Destiny. 13 Jubileus (Bayonetta) This gigantic deity faces its most challenging
enemy yet. 14 Gehrman, The First Hunter (Bloodborne) This NPC turned boss fight can shake your
patience to the very core. 15 Cronos (God Of War III) One of the biggest boss-fight in gaming so
far. How do you even fight a titan? And of course, our top pick of the most EPIC
and AMAZING boss fight in modern gaming history is Mr. Freeze from Batman: Arkham City Let’s face it, it’s not everyday you see
a chilling boss fight like this one. The last one we’ve had was Psycho Mantis
from Metal Gear but that was a long time ago. We’ve seen towering giants that can easily
be fallen over once you strike their head, we see ghosts being defeated because of some
magic spell, but we haven’t seen a battle that encompasses what you’ve learned about
the game. The boss fight with Mr. Freeze is different
to most encounters. It’s sooo cool! (Get it?) It allows the player to think twice before
engaging head-on. Both Batman and Victor have an above average
IQ and a clash of fists isn’t enough. Players must adapt to various gameplay mechanics
Arkham City have. Make use of Batman’s gadgets and his wide
array of stealth skills to take down Mr. Freeze in an advanced Cryo-suit. Trap him, sneak behind him, throw your batarang,
shock him, etcetera. Make sure you change your tactics because
this guy with a cold, cold, heart changes his methods too! How about you guys, what’s your favorite
boss fight in modern gaming? Share your thoughts in the comment section
