** Let's not forget Doom/Death Gaze. Let's see, he tries to pull a TotalPartyKill a la Level 5 Doom Spell the moment the battle begins, occasionally cuts off shit-tons of health with Aero, can randomly cast Level 1 Doom Spell to kill one of your party members, and hightails it after less than 8 turns. Oh, and he can appear the moment you take flight in [[spoiler:Daryl's]] airship, where he's likely twice your level and can kick your ass faster than you can say "what the hell was that thing?!". Oh, and when you _do_ plan on fighting him and he flees, it can take ''forever'' to find him again. And don't think he'll just decide to stick around the second time around. Or the third. Or the fourth.

*** The Son of Sun. You can't attack it directly, instead you have to pick one of five targets that orbit the darned thing to damage it. Pick correctly and you inflict a set quantity of damage; pick wrong and it counter-attacks. It's completely [[LuckBasedMission Luck-Based]] which one is the right choice, and he shuffles them around regularly with no hope in hell of keeping your eye on the right choice. He doesn't hit very hard if you're adequately leveled so there's no real danger of it beating you but battling it essentially adds up to attacking blindly and hoping you damage it every now and again, which you're going to be doing for a while so [[ProductPlacement grab a Snickers.]]
** Should you recruit [[spoiler:Magus, you can use his Black Hole tech]] to consume up to 2 of said targets (albeit one at a time), and make the fight much less troublesome. The thing is, [[GuideDangIt the game never tells you this.]] Also, if you're reading this after deciding to [[spoiler:fight him in the Dark Ages for whatever reason, [[KilledOffForReal you're shit out of luck.]]]]

** [=GutsMan=] may have been a WarmupBoss in the previous 2 games, but in Battle Network 3 he [[TookALevelInBadass becomes a fair bit more challenging]] past his first fight. He moves a little more erratically, starts carrying Area Grabs to regain ground, gains [[ImmuneToFlinching Super Armor]], and holds a ''Program Advance'' as a DesperationAttack if not defeated quickly enough.

If you see that last attack, kiss your S-rank goodbye as it lasts several seconds and you cannot damage him in the meantime.

** [=ToadMan=] in the second game is made difficult through his incredibly obnoxious attack pattern. You will constantly have to dodge the tadpole torpedoes fired by his lily pads, often dodging the paralyzing song note that Toad will fire at you (which can shift rows to home in on you), and if ToadMan catches you in his row, he'll spring over to his other lily pad, two rows above or below him, requiring you to chase him.

Added DiffLines:

*** His reappearance in the fourth game trades the three clouds for a single larger cloud that circles the perimeter of the battlefield, but this time it can shoot lightning balls up and down in addition to left and right whenever Mega lines up with it. Stand in the wrong position at the wrong time and it can briefly stunlock you.
