* ''VideoGame/TalesOfHearts'' has the gloriously chaotic fight against Chalcedony, Peridot and Pyrox all at once. Noteworthy in that while most Tales games have the rival character you will have a one-on-one battle with, Hearts puts you up against an entire rival team all at once, resulting in an incredibly fast-paced and frantic fight where managing your party members is more essential to winning than it ever is in any other fight in the game. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4FPHtv9Mz9U The music is spectacular too.]]

** The FinalBoss is an epic, three-stage ([[spoiler:four if you count the last part with Tear singing the Grand Fonic Hymn]]) clash against one of, if not ''the'', best-written antagonists in the whole series. The music is some of the best in the franchise, [[spoiler:MichaelMcConnohie]]'s voice work is just ''[[LargeHam tremendously]]'' [[LargeHam glorious]] and the fact that every character gets their own special take on the scene if they're the party leader is just the icing on the cake. It's a wonderful way to end the game and, in hindsight, it's a beautiful sendoff to the [[WellIntentionedExtremist morally grey antagonists]] that the series became loved for during the GC/PS2 generation.

** And if that fight really wasn't good enough, maybe one of the game's many {{Bonus Boss}}es are. Specifically, the cameo battle. ''Tales'' fans must have been wondering when a character from the Gamecube / PS2 generation (i.e., ''Symphonia'', ''Legendia'', ''Abyss'') would show up as an extra boss in the main series. Such a character was finally chosen for the boss fight at the end of the optional Labyrinth of Memories. That character? ''[[{{Badass}} Kratos]] [[TheStoic motherfriggin']] [[AntiHero Aurion]]'', the only character to ever beat out [[VideoGame/TalesOfDestiny Leon Magnus]] in [[PopularityPower Tales popularity polls]] (besides Yuri himself, ironically), voiced by Cam Clarke as the original was, using all the same powerful techniques, including the first appearance of his [[LimitBreak Mystic Arte]], Shining Bind, on Western shores. Clashing swords with him is just as awesome as it was back in Symphonia, if not more so.

** Team battle mode in the coliseum of the {{PS3}} version. Your chosen party of four will fight [[spoiler:Schwann and his brigade (Leblanc, Adecor, and Boccos)]], then [[spoiler:Clint, Tison, and Nan plus a helmeted Karol]], ''then'' [[spoiler:all four previous Tales cameos - Barbatos, Shizel, Dhaos, and Kratos]]...and ''then'', just when you think the awesomeness has already overloaded, [[spoiler:''the rest of your party'' comes in to fight the four you chose]].

** Without a doubt, the most iconic would be [[spoiler:Luke and Asch]]'s [[DuelBoss final duel]], with the brilliant [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-SHM-7qMiDs "Meaning of Birth"]] as BGM. Not only it's an exciting duel to play, but also it has an amazingly cathartic scenario, since [[spoiler:Luke and Asch]] finally settle down the score and give closure to their respective arcs. [[spoiler:Both characters finally stop defining themselves based on the other one, Luke completely overcomes his CloningBlues and Asch acknowledges once again his identity as the original Luke fon Fabre]]. The final battle, although it does provide a SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome in its own right, actually pales in comparison to the emotional impact of this duel. One of the most unforgettable Boss fights ever seen in an EasternRPG during the 128-bit era, if not ever.

* Whatever you may feel about the ContestedSequel ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphoniaDawnOfTheNewWorld'', it's hard to deny how awesome the final boss fight against [[spoiler:Richter]] is. Firstly, the party gets down to business after a relatively short conversation, a welcome reprieve from the villain going "JustBetweenYouAndMe" for ten minutes before any action starts; second, as they're fighting him, the party tries to [[TalkingIsAFreeAction talk some sense into him]], reminding him of his {{catchphrase}} and ideals; third, the boss is [[IncendiaryExponent on fire]]; and finally, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lr23K-m2bng the battle theme, "The Wilderness of Sadness",]] is one of the most badass final battle themes ever. Seriously, the game is probably worth it for that song alone. And also, [[spoiler:the two fights after that if you got the true ending.]]

* ''VideoGame/TalesOfPhantasia'' had the battle over Midgard. For [[SequenceBreaking players who had bought a Mecha-Halberd well ahead of time]], being demoted to the Gungnir was a bit of a letdown, but ''flying into the sky riding Pegasus'' surely wasn't. The whole thing culminates in fighting a hell of a dragon boss in midair. Seeing as how the game was right in the middle of shifting into high gear here, this fight was nothing short of sweet.

Once Sekundes is below 50%, if you manage to hold him off long enough, Keele or Meredy will recite the incantation for Indignation and hit for 100,000 damage.

* Anytime in the series where you can go to an arena for a pleasant BonusBoss experience, but the one that comes to mind is ''TalesOfTheWorld: Narikiri Dungeon 3''. The arena there is all five ''Tales'' heroes in the game (Cress, Stahn, Rid, Kyle, and Lloyd) in sequence, one-on-two versus your matched pair of OriginalGeneration kids. All of them have their full spread of attacks, outrageous HP, unmatched tenacity, and their signature [[LimitBreak Hi-Ougis]]. But the true win comes if you fight your way through all five of them - and meet up with Stahn's sister Lilith, who will proceed to kick your ass by ''channeling lightning through a frying pan''. And if you beat her? You get the ability to dress your heroine up as her and gain all her attacks. '''Thunder Sword!'''
** This was a real treat for the hardcore Tales fans, considering she was DummiedOut of the original ''VideoGame/TalesOfDestiny'' and the remake had not been announced yet.

** Nebilim in ''Abyss.'' She has the best Strike and Fonic artes in the game. She has absurdly high stats. She also sports a plethora of Mystic Artes like Big Bang, Mystic Cage, Rending Saber, and Innocent Shine. She also brings a brand new Mystic Arte that will horrendously slaughter anyone caught in it. Prepare to die over and over and very painfully each time, especially when Nebilim uses Indignation or Fragmented End.

** Cameo team battle in ''Abyss.'' You fight [[VideoGame/TalesOfEternia Reid]], [[VideoGame/TalesOfPhantasia Mint]], [[VideoGame/TalesOfDestiny Philia]], and [[VideoGame/TalesOfDestiny Nanaly.]] The battle is basically a mirror fight; Reid is the sword-user, Mint is the healer, Philia is the black mage, and Nanaly is a hybrid of melee/caster. The cameo team can and will revive their teammates and use their own Mystic Artes, including Reid's trademark LimitBreak, Aurora Wall, which will revive all dead party members and kill anyone caught in it.

It's just different.

* Whatever you may feel about the ContestedSequel ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphoniaDawnOfTheNewWorld'', it's hard to deny how awesome the final boss fight against [[spoiler:Richter]] is. Firstly, the party gets down to business after a relatively short conversation, a welcome reprieve from the villain going "JustBetweenYouAndMe" for ten minutes before any action starts; second, as they're fighting him, the party tries to [[TalkingIsAFreeAction talk some sense into him]], reminding him of his {{catchphrase}} and ideals; third, the boss is [[IncendiaryExponent on fire]]; and finally, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wmz7XUtx8ns the battle theme, "The Wilderness of Sadness",]] is one of the most badass final battle themes ever. Seriously, the game is probably worth it for that song alone.
** And also, [[spoiler:the two fights after that if you got the true ending.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/TalesOfDestiny2'': The PSP remake has the [[spoiler: Leon]] fight in the BonusDungeon, using a fairly similar moveset to the one he has in the remake. It's tough, but fun, and is made even more epic if Judas is in your party.
** The final fight against Fortuna also qualifies, simply because you're facing off against a ''goddess'' throwing spell after spell at you.
