What is your favorite Final Boss battle in a Super Mario game? (Spoilers)

I would've created a poll, but there are more than 10 Super Mario games.

Super Mario Bros. -- Bowser on a bridge
Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels -- Bowser on a bridge
Super Mario Bros. 2 -- Wart
Super Mario Land -- Tatanga
Super Mario Bros. 3 -- Bowser and the weak floor
Super Mario World -- Bowser and his Koopa Clown Car
Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins -- Wario
Super Mario 64 -- Bowser and the breakaway arena
Super Mario Sunshine -- Bowser and Bowser Jr. in a huge hot tub
New Super Mario Bros. -- Bowser and Bowser Jr. on a bridge
Super Mario Galaxy -- Bowser's Galaxy Reactor
New Super Mario Bros. Wii -- Bowser on a bridge, then running to escape giant Bowser
Super Mario Galaxy 2 -- Bowser's Galaxy Generator
Super Mario 3D Land -- Chasing Bowser to the bridge, then running to escape Bowser
New Super Mario Bros. 2 -- Bowser on a bridge, then climbing to escape giant Bowser
New Super Mario Bros. U -- Bowser on a bridge and Bowser Jr. in his Koopa Clown Car, then using the Koopa Clown Car to defeat giant Bowser

My favorite is Super Mario 3D Land. Everything about it felt so theatrical and spectacular. Running up to the castle doors in the rain was awesome, and then actually chasing Bowser down was really cool. My only complaint is I wish the music would've stopped after you break the first bridge and he falls. It would've made it seem like you'd won, until the music started back up after he jumped back up on to the platforms. Other than that, though, it was near perfect. It might be my favorite boss battle of all time.

I haven't beaten every single game yet, but my favorite boss is definitely Super Mario World. I always had fun with it.

I enjoy the bridge battles, though 64's is probably my favorite.

This. It's always fun. And it's one of the first real showdowns between Mario and Bowser, as opposed to just an "avoid/escape" fight like SMB1, SMB3, 3D Land, etc.

^This. Hands down my favorite too.
Don't hope for a new GOOD Megaman game. In the end it's only going to get cancelled.

Yoshi's Island was a fun one. NSMBU was also fun hijacking the kid's vehicle.

Super Mario World's boss is my favorite since I'm pretty sure it was my first one and it was the most memorable

Tie between Super Mario 64 and Super Mario 3D Land.
