Quotes / That One Boss


"It shoots fire from its mouth and bleeds acidic lava! Run for your pathetic lives!"
Red Mage, 8-bit Theater episode 455

"That's a good strategy, this boss is really clever!" "Perhaps, too clever."

"It's a good thing Destro couldn't actually do this in the show, or the Joes' mission would be moot."

"The battle with Wily's UFO is marked as the toughest in the entire series, with even the devs and playtesters confessing to be unable to defeat him without using at least one E-Tank. The doctor appears in the air, launching hard-hitting, homing elemental balls of death and is naturally weak to the most convoluted and difficult to fire weapon in the arsenal, the Wild Coil."'
Neil Foster on Mega Man 7, Hardcore Gaming 101

"In my opinion, [Skeith is] the hardest boss out of all four games. Also in my opinion, the perfect last boss. It feels as though you're fighting a force of nature, not a boss, but there's still enough personality for it to seem personal. The fight keeps you on your toes constantly, no matter what level you are. As long as you stay active and attentive you won't lose, but one slip up and it's very easy to lose. The kind of boss that once you beat you feel you really earned it, even though you may not have been all that close to losing, because you FELT like you were a hair away from losing constantly. I'll say it. I respect Skeith. And fear him like I fear the devil."
Naka Teleeli, on Skeith, final boss of .hack//Infection

"Um...I gotta be honest with you right here. I recorded this fight earlier and I frickin' lost. No, I don't—I don't mean that it was a close fight. I mean that I got my ass handed to me. This guy...was ridiculous."

"What, that boss? I beat him on the first try, lol."

"Where's the fun in this?"
Xaldin poses a good question, Kingdom Hearts II

"...this horrible fight forces a restart for every screw up until you've generated enough raw hate to resurrect Vigo the Carpathian's whole extended family."
PC Gamer's Richard Cobbett complains about the mole boss from No Time to Explain

"In Baten Kaitos, there are some bosses that are harder than others. Some spoken about in hushed tones, and never at night. Bosses used to scare children into submission and fill the proud with terror. And of those bosses, one stands out above all the rest."

"This is the Holoholobird."
Overrated Sage on the notorious Baten Kaitos boss

"Ordinarily, you'd expect to deal with a boss like this after fighting your way through a dungeon first. In this case, you're just walking into a castle to have a friendly little chat with your new pal's father — and then BOOM! THUNDERING DEATH FROM ABOVE!"

"Okay, if he pulls a dragon out of his ass, I'm leaving."
Varric Tethras during Corypheus boss fight, Dragon Age II, "Legacy" DLC

We are That Boss!
Yes we're all That Boss!
The one that you hate!
Because we are annoying!
We are That Boss!
Yes we're all That Boss!
Really frickin long
Or just breaks all the rules!
We are that Boss that you hate
We will grind you all up into paste!
One hit kill moves, Tedium Personified
Or just a massive spike in difficulty!
Takes too long to show weak points!
Mission failed, you have died, won't matter how much you've tried.
We're here to show you just what it means to fight with all your might.
Not meant to be this hard, but we are, so everyone better get ready!
—Sung to the tune of Super Smash Bros. Brawl's main theme

The End: You try to hide?

Snake: (sneaking up on the parrot)
The End: Right in the face.
The End: And if I'm feeling a bit down... (Low HP) ...I say a prayer to the forest... (Recovers HP)
Snake: WHAT
The End: ... And THEN I shoot you in the face!

"Well, here's a better question. Do you wanna have a bad time? 'Cause if you take another step forward... you are REALLY not going to like what happens next."

"Wait, wait, wait! I know this guy! ...Yeah, we are screwed."
Terror Mask, Splatterhouse

2097: the number of deaths it takes to beat the first boss... It's like, you're naked in school, and you have to fight 1986 Mike Tyson.
