As the title suggests, do you remember the hardest boss fight(s) you ever fought in? What were they? Do you still fight those bosses today? Are those boss fights still as hard and aggravating as you remember back then? Did you enjoy the challenge? Feel free to post any other thoughts here.

Oh god MGS is notorious for this. Not they are hard (maybe they are the first time?), but annoying, challenging to figure out and frustrating (and awesome)? Hell yes. I'm already dreading what I'm gonna find in MGS1.

I remember.. in Persona 4, Yukiko shadow was really tough for me.

Another was Eirin in Touhou : Imperishable Night.. 3:<

In Dante's Inferno I had some trouble against Lucifer since his cross spamming attacks kept me from getting close, also Orphan from Final Fantasy 13 really made my blood boil due to how long it took to kill that thing and by the end of the fight its attacks were stupidly strong to say the least.

I've had rough times with Shadow Yukiko too. D:

Another boss I've had trouble with was Smog from Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages, only because I didn't figure out his "pattern" first, nor did I realize that you can only hurt him by putting him back together. When I try to, it's a real pain; he certainly doesn't make it easy.

I almost always have trouble with Experiment 626 in Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep... the electric thing that Terra fights in Deep Space. Usually the fights that gave me trouble in my regular playthroughs became really easy (since I already knew the strategy) in my level 1 playthrough of that game but that one stayed infuriating, haha. Didn't have any trouble with it in my most recent playthrough a few weeks ago. (Hardest fight in my LV1 play was probably Ven's boss in the same world because it was timed.)

Last boss fight I got frustrated with was the last Ansem battle in Kingdom Hearts Final Mix the other night. I forgot to get Curaga because I'm an idiot and had also faced poorly against the previous Ansem, using all my items... so I must've tried about 50 times before my roommate pointed out that I was still using Cura and that all I had to do for Curaga was talk to something. I nearly cried at my mistake and decided to go get it. Had no problems after that. <_<;;;

I'm generally pretty good with bosses. If I'm finding them too frustrating, I'll just go level up (since I mostly play JRPGs). I struggle a fair bit with bosses in shooters and whatnot since there isn't a level-up system but I can't think of any bosses that absolutely infuriated me or anything. It's usually parts of the levels that are aggravating for me in those kinds of games rather than any particular boss.

Dunno if many of you have played this but in Yu gi oh world championship 2009 Alpha,Beta,Gamma,Delta aka your clones were extremely hard.
You had only 8000 HP while they had a combined of 32000.
I ended up beating them with arcana force deck(For those who dont know Arcana Force is a deck solely based on luck)

I also have to say Lavos from Chrono Trigger.

The first boss, Demid Panfilov, in Infinite Space.

Mainly because the in-game tutorial doesn't explain **** about the battle system. This guy was the bane of a lot of first time IS players.

Additionally, the stock random encounters in area right after beating Panfilov. Depending on how (un)lucky you are, you could be facing a fleet of three armed pirate vessels... With one ship which is little more then a cargo vessel with a couple of guns welded to it.

Surprised no-one has said this yet...

In Majora's Mask Gyorg is the reason I hate playing the gain Temple bay temple. I hate it if he catches you he can take four hearts at once. That happen quite a lot of the time, and today I still find him tricky to beat. He still annoys me today if you can tell.

You gotta love wake-up call bosses ;D

Let's see...I guess I could list off a plethora of bosses from Touhou Project, but of the ones I've fought...

Reisen Undongein - She's not incredibly hard once you get used to her, but she's still pretty hard. The good part of it all is that her power of illusion actually makes the game easier...but that's not to say that she doesn't put your private parts in a Salad shooter.
Reimu Hakurei - I've beaten her more times than I've beaten Reisen, but that's not at all to say that she's easy. And she's not. She can go through walls, has some of the strongest spell cards in the game, and...she's Reimu.

...Actually, if I listed them all, I'd be here all day. Just play the games, you'll see.

This boss is still the hardest boss I've ever faced because his attacks can be so unpredictable. The falling and moving rocks are the hardest to dodge.

The last boss of Ninja Gaiden I... You have to defeat all 3 of his forms without even dying anyways you restart the level. I always hated that game because of it's extremely difficult levels. Last boss didn't even help much..

I always have trouble with Tatara Kogasa for some reason on lunatic mode. Even though she's only the second stage boss..

Touhou : Unidentified Fantastic Object.
