From what I've played the Peace Walker Custom battle was a tough one.

Hitoshura is definitely a contender

Matador, Dante, and several other bosses from Nocturne

Elizabeth in P3

Elizabeth in score attack P4Arena

The hardest boss I've fought is The Mysterious Figure from Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep.


No offense, but....really?

My hardest would have to be Elizabeth from P3.

And for those ppl who are having trouble in dissidia..L2D. All attacks are perfectly dodgeable/blockable.

the people saying FF bosses arent very good at FF games... the only real tough bosses from FF games are Ozma if you dont find all the friendlies, Ruby Weapon if you dont know how to stop quicksand, Emerald Weapon if you cant figure out Aire Tam, and Neslug if you dont know how to break his shell... EVERY other boss in FF games have very simple strategies to win, just beat the crap out of them... those 4 require you to do something unorthodox to win, a side quest, start with 2 dead characters, unequip most of your gear, or use ultima (which cant do 99999 consistently)...

however, id say the hardest bosses ive faced are Grunty in Banjo-Kazooie and Banjo-Tooie... they definitely fit the title of "final boss", they are BRUTAL...

Abyssion from Tales of Symphonia. One of my friends and I spent an entire afternoon in the fight against him. Only way to survive was to use an item that halved all damage dealt by your party and the enemy.

Say what you want about the game FF13 bosses were quite a pain. They have so much HP. Notably, Bartandelus, The Skyhawk, Orphan, hell even the encounters could be tough. If you don't know how to work that stagger bar or what role does what and when to use it, you're pretty much screwed, the game doesn't really do a good job of explaining it all.

More recently, Atelier Ayesha optional bosses. Why? Because in Atelier games they cap your level (In Ayesha it was 50) you can't grow further, it only gives one or two stat upgrades per level. Not to mention you only have 100-150 HP depending on the characters. Whats more, the bosses have like 2-3 moves in a turn. A single turn! Anyway, it was a while before I got creative enough with my alchemy to take on these guys.
