* [[spoiler: Richard's]] first fight. He is the first boss to possess a Nova aura and you're down several party members for the fight. To make matters worse, he goes after your healer first.

** Normally, a HopelessBossFight is, well, a foregone conclusion and therefore not really rage-inducing, but [[spoiler:the first fight with Kratos]] is overtly sadistic about it. You don't get the slightest hint beforehand that you're not meant to win; he's even rather merciful initially, giving a HopeSpot to provoke you into taking it seriously and doubling down. First time through, you're probably blowing your entire wallet's worth of gels and life bottles with nothing to show for it, and Gods save you if you were reflexively resetting...

* In the PS3 version, to some extent, [[spoiler: Duke]]'s second form and his third form. Unlike the Xbox 360 version, Big Bang can kill, instead of leaving everyone with 1 HP. Since it deals thousands of damage on all difficulties, you're basically looking at an easy [[TotalPartyKill one-hit KO ]] on everyone. Better pack Rebirth Dolls and have that Ressurect skill ready.

* In Tales Of Graces F (the PS3 port) there is a boss that you fight in the events of the game's story after the ending of the Wii version. This boss is [[spoiler: Little Queen]]. Or rather, it's your party against a total of TWELVE [[spoiler:Little Queens]]. They aren't all out on the screen at once, probably only because the game would experience slow down. Small comfort that is. The problem with this fight [[spoiler: and said problem escalates in the second battle against her]] the boss can do your characters in in one hit(combo in the case of the physical attacking one, there are two other versions, one with nothing but projectiles and another with magic.), two to three if you're lucky and have amazing equips on Evil or Chaos difficulty. God help you if you bought DMG x5 or x10 in the grade shop. [[spoiler:The insanity of this fight escalates the second time you fight said boss]], because in the previous one, when you kill one, another takes its place until you beat all twelve. The [[spoiler:second time]]? You kill one, TWO appear to take its place. This just leads to the fight being [[NintendoHard seemingly impossible due to not even being able to attack]], because if you do, 2 or 3 of them will just RIP AND TEAR you from the side or behind; and in the [[spoiler:second round]], they have [[LimitBreak Blast Calibers]] too. Also they can seemingly ignore Cheria stopping time -- at least their bullets, spells, and [[LimitBreak Blast Calibers]] love to. Also, if you're unlucky enough to kill two or three of them at a time... [[ZergRush let's just say it won't be pretty.]]

* Jiao in the Sapstrath Deepwoods. He's the first boss you encounter after getting a proper [[TheMedic healer]] onto your team and you'll ''need'' her. Jiao is very bulky to begin with, with a lot of HP to whittle down and he's difficult to stagger. In turn, he can easily combo you and because he's TheBigGuy and uses a hammer he can, and will, cause a lot of damage to you. Elize will have her hands full healing your party. Jiao also likes to call some underlings - Wolves or Birds, which aren't tough in the general sense, but more minor annoyances because they like to trip your party up when you're trying to focus on Jiao. And defeating the underlings first merely results in Jiao calling more. It's not uncommon for first-time players to need to retry this battle at least once.



* '''Every''' battle against Chronos. Later battles give him the ability to ''reset'' the battle, if you [[TimedMission take too long to defeat him]]. He lacks this abiltiy in the first encounter with him, but that battle is no laughing matter, either. He starts off with a being strong to Dark, [[GuideDangIt which is the element of the first weapon for Ludger you could create and likely did, at this point]], and also changes his weaknesses/strengths at times. Chronos also has Chronos Corridor, which can deal quite some damage to everyone in a good radius around him and has [[ThatOneAttack Tetra Spell]]. It's basically Rock Trine, Splash, Wind Lance and Fireball ''at once'' and getting full-on hit by it spells instant [=KO=] to your character, at this point in the game. He also casts ''Haste'' on himself, meaning his casting time for Tetra Spell is lowered, giving you even less time to dodge it. When you've got him to low HP, he starts using [[TurnsRed Tetra Assault]] with an annoying frequency, making it difficult to hit him or get a Linked Arte going.

* '''Every''' battle All battles against Chronos. Later battles give him Chronos could count, but the ability to ''reset'' the battle, if you [[TimedMission take too long to defeat him]]. He lacks this abiltiy in absolute worst is the first time you encounter with him, but him. Problem number one: due to plot events, your party is stuck as Ludger, Jude, Leia and Alvin. While Leia is a CombatMedic and Jude has his own healing arte, neither of them is that battle amazing and Leia is no laughing matter, either. He unlikely to have Resurrection at this point. Problem number two: Chronos starts off with a being strong to Dark, resistances towards Darkness, [[GuideDangIt which is the element of the first weapon Custom Order sword for Ludger you could create has as its attacking element and the player likely did, at this point]], created and also changes his weaknesses/strengths at times. equipped because it's stronger]] ''and'' was actually helpful against the previous boss. And that's just the disadvantage placed on the player to begin with. Chronos also has himself is fast and hits very hard physically, he will frequently use Chronos Corridor, Corridor which can deal quite some damage to everyone in a good radius attacks every member around him and has knocks them back. Worse is his [[ThatOneAttack Tetra Spell]]. It's Spell]], basically Rock Trine, Splash, Wind Lance and Fireball the four first-tier elemental spells ''at once'' and getting once'', which ''will'' kill whatever character is hit full-on hit by with it spells instant [=KO=] to your character, at this that point in the game. He also casts ''Haste'' on himself, Oh, and he likes to cast Haste onto himself multiple times, meaning his casting time for Tetra Spell is lowered, giving will be faster and leave you even less time to dodge avoid it. When you've got him to low HP, he starts using [[TurnsRed Tetra Assault]] with an annoying frequency, making it difficult to hit him or get a Linked Arte going.Retrying this boss more than once is no shame.

Added DiffLines:

* Of course, the DuelBoss between Ludger and [[spoiler: his brother Julius]]. As with most duel bosses, the player only has one character to use and this game's battle system does not allow a not-linked character to use their [[LimitBreak Mystic Arte]], though Ludger can still use his Myste Arte for his [[SuperMode Chromatus]]. The biggest problem with this duel boss, is that he has, and likes to use, Moonlight Assault. It's a rather hard-hitting attack, can easily keep Ludger in place for a while and, because it's Light elemental, cause ''Confusion''. Confused characters are not controllable and cannot use items, so if Ludger gets hit with it, there's a pretty good chance that he'll be uncontrollable long enough for the boss to kill him. And the Confusion Ward accessory only cuts down the potential of Confusion hitting by 50 percent.

Added DiffLines:

* Exoplasma for the Elite Monster hunting. Talking to [=NPCs=] reveals that nothing really hurts it ''and'' it can multiply itself as often as it wants. Indeed, Exoplasma has no weaknesses and close to three times the amount of HP that Elite Monsters or Bosses have at that point in the game, coming in at over 500.000 hit points. Its defense is really high, so most attacks won't do much damage, anyway, even with his many strengths. Exoplasma also multiplies itself into 3 or 4 copies. The copies all take a bit of its HP off and only have a 'small' fraction of its HP (around 20.000) themselves, so they could technically be dealt with easily. Except they like to really gang up on you, especially on your medic, and they have the ability to hit far, inflinct some nasty debuffs like Burn or Paralyze onto your party and they can hide in the ground and attack from below, making it difficult to combo a single one of them. Oh, and they can also hide in the ground during Chromatus.
