** ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneySpiritOfJustice'' has one of the most intense BigBad confrontations yet: [[spoiler: Queen Ga'ran Sigatar Khura'in, who not only prosecutes the final trial due to being a former Justice Minister, but also literally writes the laws of Khura'in, and has no qualms [[ScrewTheRulesIMakeThem changing them in her favor.]] JudgeJuryAndExecutioner in the most literal sense, as both a prosecutor ''and'' final culprit she's amazingly satisfying to take down.]] Think what the lawyers accomplish in previous games is impressive? In this one [[spoiler: ''[[DidYouJusrPunchOutCthullu you put a dictator behind bars!]]'']]

** Earlier in the final chapter, there was Miracle Fassad. The fight starts out as a powered up version of the New Fassad fight in which Fassad uses all of his new technological enhancements on the party. However, he later goes OneWingedAngel and reverts to his New Fassad form. At this point, he reveals a little secret: [[spoiler:he can use PSI. Fassad goes berserk at this point, using PSI shields and using the Omega form of Freeze, Fire, and Thunder, as well as PK Starstorm. In short, a two part fight that tests both physical and special abilities and renders your physical shields worthless at the halfway point.]]

** The titular FinalBoss of ''Mike Tyson's Punch Out!!''. Hits hard, especially at the very beginning where it's 90 seconds of nothing but OneHitKO uppercuts. Beat him, and he [[GracefulLoser congratulates you on your]] [[BreakingTheFourthWall finger]] [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments speed]].
** The Wii version's BonusBoss: [[spoiler: '''Donkey. Freaking. Kong.''']] What makes it even better is the sheer difficulty of this fight. He's constantly taunting you, he offers few opportunities to get stars, he hits hard, and his patterns are hard to predict. A truly epic battle from [[spoiler: a character from the ''Mario'' universe, of all places.]]

** The boss fight with Olgierd Von Everic in the ''Hearts of Stone'' expansion. The atmospheric setup: a duel in the middle of a thunderstorm, with the backdrop of a burning manor house and cheering mercenaries, and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mVKPvspyyyQ "You're... Immortal?"]] playing in the background. And the battle itself: a high-speed sword duel with an incredibly skilled and fast opponent. Olgierd doesn't use any fancy tricks or gimmicks like the Wild Hunt warriors do; instead he's just nightmarishly quick, using a sort of demonic FlashStep to get in close to Geralt, and attacks with unrelenting combos. The only way to beat him is just to be as quick and skilled as he is, dodging, parrying, and countering his attacks. It makes for one of the most spectacularly intense duels in the entire series.

* ''VideoGame/OdinSphere'''s final book is basically a BossRush [[BestBossEver of awesomeness]]. Bonus points to Leventhan, who is his own stage, and Darkova, for being such a tearjerker.
** In terms of gameplay (in the remastered version), King Onyx stands above the rest. Unfortunately, not when you fight him as a character you ''should'' fight him with in the final book, but when facing him before, in Oswald's story, he's one of the most enjoyable bosses in the game - his pattern is hard to avoid even after you've learned it, and he doesn't rely on wearing the player out by being a damage sponge, and/or on summoning hordes difficult-to-neutralize mooks, like other hard bosses, like [[spoiler: Gallon]], The Cauldron and Wagner do.

** Mr. Freeze, who COMPLETELY averts BossArenaIdiocy by making sure that once you use a strategy against him once, you can NEVER USE IT AGAIN. He's completely invulnerable to head-on attack and can kill you in under 5 seconds with his ice beam. Beating him requires that you utilize every stealth-based attack you have used, since once you have used one trick on him, he'll put up a defense that prevents it from working again. For example, if you try to attack him by gliding off of the top floor rafters and kicking him, it will work at first, but then Freeze will fire his beam into the air, making the air denser which ices over Batman's cape and and making gliding impossible. On NewGamePlus mode this will go UpToEleven, where you won't just have to use five or six tricks, you will have to use all of them due to his increased health and general [[BadAss Badassery]]. Oh and on top of that in NewGamePlus if you're the kind of player who abuses Detective Mode by turning it on and leaving it on? Freeze will punish you for that too by jamming it into uselessness unless you turn it off for extended periods of time much longer than the duration you left it on in the first place. Have fun having to actually track Freeze on your own.

* ''VideoGame/EverythingOrNothing'': Escaping [[BigBad Diavolo's]] villa -- and, to unlock a new cheat code, you have to do it ''unarmed.'' It's NintendoHard in the very best sense -- damn near impossible, but the crazy awesome GoodOldFisticuffs make it ''way'' too much fun to be frustrating. And the BadAss [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic Spanish bullfight-style music]] barling away in the background doesn't hurt, either.

* Lou from ''VideoGame/GuitarHero 3'', if only because you feel like the world's biggest BadAss after beating him. And you fight to "[[SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic the Devil Went Down to Georgia]]" and they bleep out the cuss word. And when you beat Lou, you get to play a minute-long solo whilst he just stands there, utterly defeated and reduced to name-calling. Then, at the end, the game utters these final words: [[ThePowerOfRock "YOU ARE A ROCK GOD!"]] As if that wasn't enough, you fly up to Heaven on winged motorcycles and play Music/DragonForce whilst the credits roll.

* Sheltem from the ''VideoGame/MightAndMagic'' games is probably one of the most {{Badass}} bosses ever. He gloats about being unstoppable, and he's basically right. [[HopelessBossFight Your party cannot kill him.]] If you try, he calls you fools, waves his hand, and you all die. Even if you get around this, you still don't fight him.

* ''VideoGame/{{Turok}}'': Thunder is a genetically engineered bio-mechanical TyrannosaurusRex, armed with rocket launchers, flame breath, giant teeth and claws, shockwave stomp, and '''a freaking photon cannon on its head.''' That [[TurnsRed gets faster as you damage it]]. And can survive not one, not two, but '''[[MadeOfIron all three shots from your]] [[NukeEm fusion]] [[{{BFG}} cannon]].''' {{Badass}}.

** [[spoiler:Draco Cantus]] is pretty awesome. It's [[spoiler:the only one-player fight in the game, because your partners are ''part of it'', and once you get its health down to zero, [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome Neku and his partners do a four-way fusion, at which point he summons a giant Player Pin symbol and fires a]] WaveMotionGun [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome from it.]]]] The aforementioned boss also fires [[BeamSpam so many fireballs]] that the DS literally ''lags'' a bit trying to keep up. You feel a bit BadAss just having beaten it... unless you eventually get frustrated enough to hit "retry on Easy" since switching to Normal would have meant fighting [[SequentialBoss the two preceding boss fights]] again.

Special points go to the FinishingMove performed at the end of the fight: [[spoiler:shoving the BFG-9000 into her mouth and ''[[YourHeadAsplode blowing her entire head apart]]'']].

** The confrontation with [[spoiler: Ambassador Quercus Alba]] in ''VisualNovel/AceAttorneyInvestigations''. Unlike past games, all the cases are related in some way, and thus all the tragic events, such as [[spoiler: Oliver being Amano's scape-goat and having to abandon his daughter, and the death of Kay's father]], can be traced back to him. And God, does he put up one hell of a fight. No matter how many flaws and circustances you bring up pointing at him, he will always throw something back at you. Notably, he's one of the few non-lawyer, non-prosecutor characters to have his own '''OBJECTION!''' sound clip, just to drive home how powerful he is. Thus it is ''incredibly'' satisfying when he finally comes down.

** The same game also has Dolan, God-Beast of the Moon. You get to the very top of the tower and hear music unique to this boss. The boss doesn't appear right away, so you have some time to apply stat-ups. Then the tower shakes and two big hairy arms rise up and the battle with this wolf-beast {{kaiju}} begins. As GameFAQs' boss guide put it, "Now THIS is a God-Beast!"

* ''VideoGame/NocturneRebirth'' has the BonusBoss battle against [[WolfpackBoss Main, Tae, and Serena]], who can use gimmicks such as {{Combination Attack}}s, a barrier that allows individual members to revive after a few turns, and the ability to [[InterfaceScrew hide the ATB gauges]]. The rematch against them is even harder and is balanced for a max level party, but the player no longer has to hold back their characters' growth now that they don't have to worry about Brave Clear levels.
