Current That One Boss(es) and That One Level(s)?:

 1 Tsunde Ray, Wed, 8th Sep '10 12:50:29 PM from Santa Clara, California
HOORAY!
As in, bosses and levels you're currently stuck on.

  • The Typing of the Dead:
    • Chapter 3 and up. Damned axe zombies. Maybe once I figure out how to switch boxes they'll be way less stupid.
    • From the same chapter, Tower. It's a bit hard to answer the questions right when I'm on a short time limit and the answer boxes keep moving around. And heaven help me if the second phase is in the sand pit instead of the pool...
    • Surprisingly, I don't hate The Magician that much. For a difficult boss that demands letter-perfect typing for the first phase, he's actually quite fun and a good test of typing ability. Probably because I read about the first phase before so I knew what I was getting into.

From Advance Wars: Dual Strike:
* Mission 21/22/23/24: Pincer Strike. Tons of enemy units, one of the armies is blockaded by artillery and rocket units, the other one gets a battleship, a bunch of tanks, and AA units breathing down their neck, and it starts raining after three turns. I hate fog of war.

Gengetsu and Flandre Scarlet. For added stinging, they are both Bonus Bosses.

Making be fight Babel's second form with only my weak little humans? That's so not cool. At least it's easy to grind at this point.

@Comic: Are you on a subsequent playthrough?

For a long time, it was Gurresby Purrvis from DQIX then I grinded and beat him.

Now I have to beat him again in the rematch sad

Problem?
  • Knights in the Nightmare: The Fight against Ganzer/Gunther. It went like this: He is able to kill my light knight in one hit. I guess that I should have been more defensive than I ever was, since my playstyle is being on the Offensive... I think I'm not playing this right...
  • Eden's Aegis: Stage 3 is just one big HUGE Difficulty Spike, and that is all I'll have to say.
  • Freespace 2: Proving Grounds. Out of all the levels, this is the one I hate the most. First, these annoying Stealth Fighters nearly destroyed that hull for practice! Then, I have to deal with Shivans in the fog, with a cruiser at the end, while I keep my own escort target above 50% Hull! And the best part? YOU'RE IN THE FUCKING FOG. I hate that mission.

Big Blue Boss from One Slime. About seven years and I'm still unable to beat it.
 
^^^ Yeah. I'm just going to grind my guys up a handful of levels and stuff some physical buffs and an addition healing spell or two on 'em. Should work out. I actually did manage to get Babel down to a third of his HP before my last guy was wiped out on my second attempt.

I've already gotten the "good ending" and the "worst ending" in Valkyrie Profile: Covenant of the Plume, so now to unlock the bonus dungeon I'm aiming for the "bad ending." Unfortunately, I have one more of this game's godawful escort missions to complete, and this one's the second half of a two-part battle, so every time my charges get killed I need to repeat the first half (and I need to do perfect on it, too, since getting the best possible reward for the first half gets me two upgraded weapons that I desperately need.) It wouldn't be so bad if I hadn't already read the spoilers and I didn't know that the people I'm supposed to be protecting die in a cutscene immediately afterwards. Damn you, Square Enix, for not letting me save between fights (and for making this the angstiest game I've ever played, but that's another issue.)

EX-Alice, who I've pushed into the penultimate phase of the fight three times and promptly eaten shit.

Even when I finally beat her I'll feel like I cheated a bit because that phase and the cards throughout the level lag me noticeably (doesn't handle big bullets well).

On the upside, 7/9 has gotten a lot easier once I realized the popcorn is all aimed.

Also, I just know the time I eventually beat her will have a score about 10 million lower than some of my attempts that didn't even hit the last third of the fight, just because of how Dream Bonus works tongue

Columbia is tired of your s**t!
Greedy in Ristar. Even with pointers from folks online I have been unable to beat him. I got so fed up with my inability to beat him, I went ahead and checked online to see what the ending looked like. And this from someone who beat Kid Chameleon without cheating. Once.

That One Level? One of the desert levels in the Sega Genesis version of Bubble And Squeak, which appears to be impossible to defeat without cheating. From looking online, it seems the springs in the original Amiga version had more “spring” in them. Whoever programmed the Sega port didn’t alter the level architecture to allow for this, rendering this one level effectively an impassable brick wall. D’oh

There is no easy way to bring down Greedy. The reason all those videos show the player sweeping his last phase in about ten seconds by perfectly intercepting every teleport is because that's actually the only way to kill him.

I actually brought him down on Super once. Heaven only knows how, but it's quite fortunate that difficulty gives infinite continues.

Also, scratch EX-Alice! BOOYAH

A-HYUK!

Red from HG.

I'm so scared of him. His pokemon are in the 80s and my Pokemon aren't even to 79. He's going to pummel me if I don't take this seriously.

For a level, it has to be the level in Mario Kart DS where you play as Wario and you need to kill 20 of those mole things with a star. You need to get a star at least on all six to get the bonus 7th levels.

Try to steal that Light Ball from his Pikachu, if you can. Very useful.

^^HIS SNORLAX IS EVIL.

I fear his Snorlax and his Lapras. I've got an antitank strategy but... damn. Not to mention Red will likely use full restores. Thank christ I've got 7 max revives.

If you can take the Snorlax, he's as good as down. He's well worth a Ghost-Curse sacrifice.

Block 8 in Super Castlevania 4. The rest of the game is amazing so far, but I can't seem to play this pile of shit stage for too long, and I am currently stuck on it. I hate the many cheap instant death traps. I hate the enemies. I hate the platforming. I hate the fact that I have to go back to the beginning EVERY. FUCKING. TIME. I. DIE.
