Just been looking around on other forum and notice an interesting one based around memorable Bosses from games.
So I thought why not do one here but in a retro sense.
You can use current systems if you want.

The boss that I've always loved was M Bison from SF2. The amout of time and pocket money I spent on continues just so I could see Ken's ending. Mind you it was a let down after beating Bison as Ken's ending was really crap. Nevermind though it was money well spent.

The boss at the end of Thunderforce 5 on Saturn is awesome, especially if you get to do it all right on the harder difficulty settings...The big flying robot dude with transparent wings flying up through the tunnel. It's a great ix of fantastic music and brill graphics.

Ash (Not the forum member!) from Bare Knuckle III. Very satisfying to beat the crap out of 8)

Favourite boss for me is..your best mate!
In Double Dragon,when,after battling together through to
the end of the game,you end up facing off against each other for the affections of Maria

Also defeating Le Chuck at the end of MI2

Also Psycho Mantis in Metal Gear Solid on PS2-(you had to use joypad in port 2 to beat him)

Sega F.C. - Virtua Striker 2 arcade

The Space Battleship from Radiant Silvergun. Just one of my favourite sections of a game full stop. For a start it's dramatic as hell with a truly epic sense of scale (the continuous waves of enemy craft coming at you at the start, and the giant missiles), but that moment where the outstanding music hits an overture and the whole ship starts rotating around you, with you desperately avioding attacks from every angle - it really does give me goosebumps.

Batwing and The Machine from Turrican 2 - two ABSOLUTELY HUGE beasties.

Have to agree with you about Psycho Mantis - that was cool
