Great list, automatic thumbs up for having the Nameless King in the top spot

Man crowmerax for real that dude/abomination was so easy by the time we got to him in our play through

What about Mephisto.... Diablo was damn easy compared to him ...
Meatloaf Elite (22 days ago)
Leftsouthstrike paw lister the tormentor the giant skeleton dinosaur thing you fight immediately before Baal was a nightmare too. I really really hate that thing.
Leftsouthstrike paw (23 days ago)
Meatloaf Elite yeah...now I remember..that two timing snake was such a pain...

Duriel was the most annoying to me because you can’t escape if things go south and his frozen aura can’t be prevented meaning you’re always frozen. Plus you’re usually between lvl 18-24 and you don’t have your best skills yet.

The Nameless King, oh the nightmares. that boss is harder then all other bosses in DS3 combined. i beat him, but the difference in difficulty is insane
Firby V (1 month ago)
I was about to say “How about you guys try to beat the Nameless King form DS3 first before making this video”and then I saw that he was on this list and was like “NVM”

Why is Yiazmat from Final Fantasy 12 never on any of these lists? The amount of stuff you need to do to unlock him then be locked into a 3 hour duel if you want to do it in 1 foul swoop is a much more satisfying feeling than anything on this list.
Ya know im surprised to hear Jules, who's a persona fan, didn't put the velvet room attendants in there. Especially Margret because you have to face her by yourself

Anyone else agree that Moon Presence at the end of Bloodborne should be here?

The Nameless King above Rodin?! Hahahahahahahah no.

if you're talking about dark souls 3 hidden bosses then talk about midir not little bird boi. nameless is legit one of the easiest bosses as long as you're not above playthrough 4 and are scaled properly I am very unsatisfied

The Storm Fortress...oh lordy lordy donut waffle fucking lordy. many hours of holding in a raging nerve to destroy that bastard of a ship, despite its reward it's like someone telling you at work "Hey mate i'm dealing with idiotic customers and i'm called for an important meeting so you'll be on your own, however you'll get a 10% pay rise. that 10% being 20,000 gold in game the customers being the inconveniant bastards of what you would believe is the final leg. need I say more?

Defiled Amygdala in the Bloodborne Chalice dungeons was it for me. I KNEW it would be hard but that was one of the few bosses that really taught me how to "get good".
Drayko Wolf (1 month ago)
I prefer more along the lines of old school secret bosses myself. Dark souls? give me a break. How about secret boss Lapis from Legend of Legaia? Now there was a tough as nails boss fight.
I love you xxxx

Abyssion, from Tales of Symphonia. Hooooooly crap.

The Radiance fight made up for the fact the story was pretentious garbage. That fight was hella satisfying. Side note though, I thought Nightmare Grimm was a much harder fight and he too was also optional.

Every time I tried to fight the storm fortress the damn thing would eventually sale off so far I could not find it.

My #1 would be the secret boss battle after the credits in Shining Force 2. You have to beat most of the game's toughest bosses including Zeon in the same fight.
HentaiSenpai9000 (1 month ago)
Also in addition to the Radiance. You have to defeat the Hollow Knight right before. Assuming you survived the White Palace.

Oh, Rogue, thought it was just Black Flag. Was sitting here thinking 'Shite did I miss one?' Also, I'll admit to cheesing the Nameless King.. he charged at me and got stuck in the doorframe and I figured 'Screw it, he's killed me a good ten times already, Ima enjoy this.'

“Beats off”...was there really no better wording to say you get defeated? Lol
TheGamingGrimReaper (1 month ago)
all i want to say... is lingering will (terra) from kingdom hearts 2 final mix or mysterious figure in kingdom hearts 1 final mix or really any of the final mix technical super bosses in any of the kh games...lingering will was just a pain on critical mode and i mean A PAIN...

Zarg At Home (1 month ago)
Wow I can't believe you fucking noobs didn't put the nine Valkyries from the new God of War. Seriously, they are the cheapest cheating pieces of shit I have ever had the pleasure of whipping the fuck out of. This list needs a Redux

Tyler Hogan except, if..ya know...you were wrong. But it's all good, bro. Have you gotten the Plat for GOW yet?
Zarg At Home (1 month ago)
Tyler Hogan If you’re talking about this video, it was published on May 13, 2018. God of war came out on April 20, 2018. So, yeah, I’m completely lost and confused by your comment.

Laurence from Bloodborne The Old Hunters? I think he is one of the worst optional bosses in gaming.

I'm not sure SANS counts as a "secret" boss...
Nameless king is hard af. But not to be placed #1.

AshenTycoon (1 month ago)
I would have put Midir in the place of Nameless, but after beating him twice (solo no less) on two different characters on the same day dying a mere three times in total. I have to agree with Nameless, though I did beat him on my first try of the day that I beat Midir twice. In fact on the second character I beat Midir on that day I died twice, I died more times to IUDEX GUNDYR that playthrough thanks to chosing the Thief class and not being used to having only a dagger as a weapon (when I went Herald I didn't die to Iudex Gundyr on my 5th playthrough). That was my thrid playthrough as well.
Ernie the Quiet Doom (1 month ago)
Emerald Weapon from FFVII and Sephiroth from Kingdom Hearts.

A boss I have to say to beat is Omega in FF15 a 2 hour slog of chipping it's Health little at a time
kylesenior (1 month ago)
Emil from Nier Automata should be on the list.
Nick Fedorov (1 month ago)
He's probably on a same level as any of Rodin fights.

Lingering will from kingdom hearts 2 final mix should have been here
JLCBubba (1 month ago)
The Final Fantasy series has three better optional bosses than most of those - Ozma in IX, which has the potential to flatten your whole Party in one attack, and attacks often. Penance in X, which is a pain to fight even at max stats (or you can cheese and Yojimbo it). Yiazmat in XII, which has so much HP, eventually reduces your damage cap to under 4K, and can potentially wipe out your whole team with Cyclone.
JLCBubba (1 month ago)
Yeah, the Weapons in VII were good too, if I remember them right, one had a time limit, and the method to beating the other was to use only one Party member.
Nick Fedorov (1 month ago)
Let's not talk about Weapons. Especially Omega Weapon ;-)
JLCBubba (1 month ago)
He's totally random with some things, you can actually avoid some of his spells, or cause him to waste attacks with the right equipment, but that Meteor is the nast one, it can wipe out everything potentially, and most times I only ever had one or two alive at best after it used it. The key is making it waste attacks.
Brandon Johnson (1 month ago)
JLCBubba Ozma is such a weird fight to me and my uncle we're stuck on him for a while on both if our saves. One day I decided just for the hell of it, I'd right ozma using auto float ...this somehow caused him to miss enough attacks that I would up beating him, it didn't work as well for my uncle though which made it even weirder.

Kye Bloom (1 month ago)
Slave Knight Gael or Midear are far far harder than Nameless King.
Nick Fedorov (1 month ago)
Gael is not optional. And totally not secret.
MrJechgo (1 month ago)
Depending on whether or not Japan-exclusive games/versions are allowed, I'd give a spot to the Spiral Draco from Tales of Vesperia (on PS3, only in Japan) - Secret boss - Insane amount of HP (1 million on Normal, 2,5 millions on Hard and 5 millions on Unknown) - Devastating attacks - Fell arms, or secret weapons that can be ridiculously powerful the more you use them, deal 1 point of damage to it. - Each body part is a separate target (1 main head, 2 secondary heads, body, and 2 tails)... *and the main head revive the fallen body parts* Speaking of Tales games, the Golden Mage Knight from Tales of Xillia 1 is something: - Secret arena boss, only accessible after you acquired the Devil's Arms. - Starts with one Knight, and then splits in two... and then in three... - Basically, each Knight mimics one of the playable characters.
