I was hoping he'd have mentioned Omega 2 from Final Fantasy. It's such an OP end-of-the-end game monstrosity that it doesn't even drop LOOT. It just gives you this badge thingy so you can prove to people you actually figured out how to kill it.... Seriously, it has stupid amounts of HP, is immune to or reflects almost everything AND has the ability to force party members to leave your team mid-fight. It takes a lot of skill simply to have any hope of killing the giant mechanical spider
Update dragon quest 11 where you save the world go into post game go back in time to save a companion to fight the dark Lord again beat him again. Only to find there's a little black blob that's the real final boss I think haven't fought him yet lol.
I feel like (and this is likely just me) Persona 5 kind of fits this. I get to the palace with a big bad boss with 5 different stages, who is no push-over, and then I realized afterwards, as the story kept going, that it isn't over, there is one final boss who was bloody irritating, and I was over-leveled compared to others that have beaten it.
I have one. In FNAF world you battle against purplegeist, later on in the fight he is squashed by the real final boss: chica’s magic rainbow! A ridiculously hard enemy with mini rainbows. You have a timer too, and if you don’t kill her in time, a devistating rainbow cannon blast destroys you!
I am not sure if they count since they are optional, but DS3's main story leads you to the Soul of Cinder who is considered even by Fromsoftware to be the final boss of the story... but then they added a bunch of optional and much harder bosses, like the Nameless King (the real prize to beat), Sister Friede in the first DCL, and Slave Knight Gael and the monster called Darkeater Midir in the second DLC.
There's apparently a hint to him existing, but it's a lot earlier, and it's not obvious who or what they're talking about (I read it was when Doctor Tot questions why the different crystals were separated) that it seems like he appears out of nowhere.
You just said you don't play Nioh so why are you acting like you're playing it 25 seconds later....JUST FOR THAT I unsub....oh wait i still haven't subbed....here we go...double click...and presto....unsubbed
Huh, I expected Kid Icarus Uprising to make the list. Medusa is built up so well and they make everything seem climatic. Come on, you've defeated her four commanders, gone to the underworld castle of all places, slain the reincarnated commanders and made it all the way to the end, if that's not climactic I don't know what is. Even the credits roll once you beat her, and everyone's like "Yay Pit you saved the day whoop de doo". And then Hades shows up.
Mergo's Wet Nurse was never meant to come off as the final boss though, any From fan knows that. For starters the fight wasn't in the final boss arena that Miyazaki is known for. Didn't know who the last boss would be but definitely knew there was more after the Wet Nurse. I totally should have seen Gehrman coming though.
Volgin and shagohod from MGS snake eater
And Luca Blight from suikoden 2 (pretty obvious actually, due to we haven't complete 108 stars of destiny at that point) but still i thought Luca was the main villain
valkyrie profile 2 led you to believe the final boss to be Oden, but as you defeat him a teammate of yours named Lezard takes Oden and jumps through a portal. Lezard's plan is to absorb Oden's power and make a closed off Yggdrasil so that time will never end.
Dmc 2 had you fight a creature that was a combination of all the bosses Dante fought in the game, but after you defeat it another boss appears from within it.
Dmc 3 told you hey the jester/man is going to be the final boss, but after you defeat him you end up fighting Vergil.
I have 2 to submit.
First is a somewhat cheat but bear with me it is the Growlanser games (at least first 3); the thing is the stories have no temporal seperation amongst them rendering all the series as one game with a lot of "DLC". game one results by the actions of game 3's story, and game two immediately follows the first by starting a little before the first games conclusion. the third games story half way through has you sending people connected to the first games story to an alternate reality/different planet that is where game 1 and 2 take place. Then guess what you continue through to face the evil group killing the planet by robbing itslife energy... except if you think about the F'd up timeline of events game two takes place after the end of 3 and after the end of 1 and it does not have a real end of problems last boss meaning that there must have been one I did not fight or yet again it is resolved in titles 4+ that I did not play.
Second title was Grandia extreme... So you half to calm the 4 elemental pillars (tower/dungeons) so the planet does not litterally tear it self apart, alright lets go... Earth then fire then water and now we reach wind and... why did they just introduce a new character; oh thats right because now we have to go to the moon like all the other grandia titles. amazing it was actually the Star temple that had 2 or 3 seperate mini dungeons within it so clearly this is the end... Whats that the Joker (Mark Hamil playing a part of a character) wants to take all the power for himself OK. So we beat him and now there is some sort of God like being and his dungeon and... wait the Joker was the story lines end boss? It continued so fluently that the "Last" boss felt like an intermediary one. I stopped playing at that point for the most part because I did not want to find more. Double check but I think there was actually one last even after the God.
