NO RPGS (Action RPG is OK)
NO MMO's
BOSSES ONLY
FINAL DESTINATION

This will be an open discussion. When we get enough posts, we'll discuss about each and everyone's post on The Official Apocalypse Tribe Podcast. So what's your favorite boss fight? And why?

This is tough for me, so I'm gonna choose three then decide from there.

No RPGs? No MMOs? Bosses only? This man fits all the criteria. In the episode where Tony and Samantha fight. best boss fight imho.

Monster Hunter is not an MMO, as 4 players do not count as massive, so I choose Wyvern hunting in Monster Hunter.

We would tag the Wyvern with paint, then run from zone to zone, tracking the moving blip on the map. We set up a pitfall trap and sounded the horn which would bring the Wyvern crashing down on our location. One player was elected to be the bait and stand in it's path in front of the pitfall. When the monster would storm in for the kill, the bait rolled out of the way at the last instant and the giant creature tumbled into the pit where we had also placed explosive powder kegs. The Gunner would alternate between firing damaging rounds into the beast, and firing healing shots at the team, reloading ammo each time. The giant swords and axes would sometimes catch an errant teammate and send them flying through the air. It was some of the most technical team based situations I have encountered, and ultimately the most fun boss fights.

Man those were intense moments. Setting up the trap and seeing everything unfold (right before we start attacking with our weapons) was the best part. Once the barrels exploded, it was a "Fuck yeah!" moment.

The Rathalos fight was always crazy, it was even crazier when you did the Masters of Sky and Land quest where fought both Rathian and Rathalos at the same time. Still though, Gravios was my favorite wyvern to fight in particular. He had the crazy Shoryuken beam breath, the sleep gas which would knock are melee'ers in the vicinity out and usually was up to the gunners to wake them up. Plus he was just so massive.

I was just on my way to post here, and someone beat me to the punch! Monster hunter also takes the cake for me, except for me it came down to the Akantor fight. Akantor is a dragon, about half the size of Lao-Shan Lung, except with one big difference from Lao; He's not a slow moving piece of shit who doesn't attack!

In this little video, you'll see why my Akantor card trumps (Literally) AC9's Gravios card!



I will say though, with the release of Monster Hunter Freedom Unite, Yama-tsu Kami is a really fun fight too.

You guys should definitely get in on the MHFU action! The new shit is really crazy!

What is it that makes a boss fight great? Like when we think of boss fights we only think about modern games from the past 10 years but how come none of us have mentioned any 8 bit 16 bit or even 64 bit bosses? I mean Megaman games are like a boss buffet and contra games are like boss on bosses!
