* SNKBoss: Absolute Virtue goes far beyond simply being ThatOneBoss. While his access to every 2-hour ability was bad enough on the whole, a poorly timed Benediction could effectively reset the fight, in one infamous instance after battling for '''30 hours'''. Not to mention that it isn't TheComputerIsACheatingBastard, it's the Developers that were Cheating Bastards. Whenever anybody found a strategy that would allow them to beat Absolute Virtue, the devs would patch the game to either buff AV against it or nerf the strategy altogether. The devs never allowed Absolute Virtue to finally go down until the level cap was raised past 75 years after its released, at which point the level difference allowed players to simply muscle through it.
