Sonic the Hedgehog - 10 Over The Top Boss Moves We Did Not See Coming
bosses are meant to have exaggerated movesets and do things that you would never see a regular enemy do, but some of them are so over the top that it's worth putting them together and having a look at them. Hi folks, it's Falcon, and today in the game he ranked 10 over-the-top boss moves.
Cronos - god of war 3
The set pieces, the combat, the level of violence and scale of the boss fights, it's all about as crazy as an action game can get.
Picking just one boss, let alone one attack for this list, was a tall order because there are a lot of options here. The scene where Hades tries to steal your soul almost made this list, but we decided to start with something more suitably bombastic, namely, the fight with Chronos. Goes to 100, right from the start, with this gigantic titan trying to crush Kratos between his thumb and index finger while the camera zooms out to really give you a sense of scale, just telling you hey, this guy is that much bigger than you, like you're not even an ant compared to this guy.
He's basically messing with you at that point, though. When he gets really serious, that's when he just straight up tries to crush you flat with the palm of his hand (which is obviously not good enough to stop Kratos, of course, but pretty impressive ).
Final boss - guardians of the galaxy
And number nine, the throwing of a planet under attack by the guardians of the galaxy. I don't know about you, but I did not expect the Guardians of the Galaxy game to escalate as fast as it did or as far as it did.
The final boss is the closest thing we've seen to a JRPG boss in a western action game based on a comic book that we've ever seen. It's totally nuts. After the faked out ending, it's revealed that the true enemy of the game is Magus again. Perhaps a funny coincidence, in that it's kind of the inverse of the chrono trigger, where Magus wasn't the actual bad guy, but he took control of Adam Warlock, which basically means he has infinite power, and if none of that makes any sense to you, just remember it's comic books.
You kind of have to roll with it, but you battled this guy floating on a platform in space where he summoned shadow enemies to fight you while trying to pelt you with projectiles. For most of the fight, it's nothing too wild, but get far enough and he suddenly whips out an entire planet that he sends crashing towards you.
The only way to survive is to reach the shield that Nikki generates; otherwise, you're just dead. It doesn't get much more over the top than using a planet like a snowball, but believe me, it's the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the top attacks in article games .
At number eight, Asura's wrath, Time stops ass kicking the fairlack of a better word. The true final boss in Asura's Wrath, the one that we're contractually obligated to remind you that you had to pay money to actually see, is one of the most over-the-top final encounters in article game history.
If we're just talking about scale, this would probably be the number one out of all of them. In the lead up to the fight, this guy doesn't just throw planets at you, he throws entire solar systems at you. You blow up the sun while trying to kill him. The scale is insane, like it's also so over the top that regular gigantic things get thrown at you, like they almost feel mundane.
I mean, it doesn't, but when your main guy is suddenly as big as a planet and the final boss is bigger than the galaxy, these kinds of attacks stop being as impressive. So instead of just talking about big things getting thrown at you, I want to talk about one of the crazier boss attacks out there.
He pulls this time stop ability on you and he generates his orb, so if you're in it gets frozen solid and he takes advantage of that by giving you this insane beat down. Even if you manage to avoid some of his attacks, he still taunts the hell out of you by teleporting in your way and just staring at you like you're nothing. It's probably one of the most Dragon Ball Z style teleport spam beat downs, but taken to the next level, and you basically have to be on the receiving end of it .
Kirby and the forgotten land
And number seven is a psychic meteor attack from Kirby in the forgotten land, looking at the little cute puffball. You'd assume that a Kirby game would probably be one of the last types of games where you'd see insane, over-the-top bosses, but you'd be wrong.
Some of the most wild stuff of all time goes down in the Kirby series, but then again, the game is about a little fluff ball that can absorb basically anything and steal its powers, kind of like a cute vacuum. I don't know, it's weird enough to expect some weird stuff, but still, you don't really expect devil may cry level bosses.
But then you get to the final boss, and this goes for basically any Kirby game, but in this case, the most over-the-top attack in the game happens at the end of the true arena, the final challenge of the game. You get to the end, you take on the chaos alphalus, the ultimate form of the regular final boss with an entirely new second form.
He was basically already a Devil May Cry boss with some pretty impressive attacks, but in the ultimate form, he goes to the next level. When you get to the second part of the fight, that's also when the stops really get pulled out, it catches on fire, and the skies turn red. It starts causing explosive debris to rain down from the sky.
In action, some of it falls down in piles, and the only way to avoid the next attack, a massive deadly shock wave, is to platform up the debris to avoid it. It doesn't sound that crazy, but in action it's actually pretty tough and insane looking. Kirby in the forgotten lands actually has some pretty wild bosses other than this, but obviously the chaos alpha list tops all of them .
Final boss - elden ring
And number six is the old beast. A grab attack from Alden Ring We had to mention at least one Souls game boss here, and while most of the bosses in these kinds of games are more down to earth with less blasty attacks, this guy is anything but.
The Elder Beast is the final boss of the game, where the fight tag plays in a suitably epic environment. A lot of its attacks are over the top. It's got a massive sword that generates holy explosions. It fires homing projectiles that shoot out dozens of additional homing projectiles. It flies into the air shooting stuff at you, and it's an all-around weird fight that's a little more abstract than what you're used to seeing in these kinds of games, where the standard boss is usually just a guy with a sword.
Of course, its most over-the-top attack has got to be its grab. If you've seen it, you know exactly what we're talking about. If you're unlucky enough to get caught by this thing, it literally crucifies. He puts you on the elden ring just like America, then impales you with multiple magic spears before blowing you up in a massive explosion.
