The bald psycho from Altered Beast: 'Welcome to your doom!'.

He changed into an eyeball flower and a head-tossing doggy. Wins on sheer imagination.

Oh yeah, the guy with the white coat in Michael Jackson's Moonwalker always raised a smile.

"Ha Ha! You'll Never Catch Me!" He shouted as he casually walked right in front of you, and then off-screen. 8)

That skeleton-like boss at the end of level 2 in Disposable Hero. Scared me first time round, with it's laser-firing eyes and blisteringly fast movement! It would later then breathe fire at your ship! Nice!

Mr Big in NARC. Wrong on so many levels! Is that what happens when you take drugs? :shock:

The bomb-throwing rat with sunglasses in Super Mario Bros. 2 is not only my favorite boss, but also my own personal representation of '80s pop culture in general. It sticks out to such a great extent that my girlfriend and I find a way to interject "rat with sunglasses" into our lexicon as much as possible: "Rat with sunglasses!"

Emerald Weapon, for the smug feeling you get when its finally dead.

Colossus #6 (the beardy one).

Robotnik's big feckin' suit thing in Sonic 2.

Mars in Forgotten Worlds.

And the dragon from Level 6 in Rastan, twas a big screen filling dragon. Impressive in its day.

Viewtiful Joe had a few good un's. Gran Bruce for being hilariously stupid and Hulk Davidson for his Mr T style banter ^_^


Some great images of the characters in this link.

Panzer Dragoon Saga's continual bust-ups with Atolm were brilliant as well.

Image link to Atolm

I really enjoyed the fight with Twinrova in Zelda:OoT. Really great fight especially when they both merged ^_^


That's it from me!

Banjo Kazooie - That final battle with Grunty was fantastic, especially when the jinjos came in to help!
