Gaming isn’t gaming without a bit of spice, and bosses bring a gaming experience more challenge, excitement, suspense, and strategy. 

To give you some insight, Bosses have always been an essential part of adding challenge/obstacle to a game; it helps the game reach a new level of fun. Furthermore, bosses are a great way for players to test their skills and knowledge about said game, thus it tests them on how well they know the game, and how good they are at the game.

Video game bosses each have their own unique personalities, traits, characteristics, and abilities that allow them to distinguish each other. 

Difficulty in bosses is a very nice feature in video games, but history has shown some bosses to be brutally hard, ferocious, and annoying. In this guide, we will cover the 10 bosses that make us rage quit.

10. Sobek – Assasins Creed Orgins (2017)

Sobek Assasins is one of the most infuriating boss fights in Assasin Creed Origins, this monster of a beast is located at the northernmost point of the Nile river, right where it meets the Mediterranean sea. The huge crocodile is the ancient Egyptian god of the Nile river; that title alone makes Sobek quite the intimidating, and difficult opponent. 

You should probably wait until you become higher level, before fighting Sobek since he will probably be time-consuming if not careful.

9. Dark Link – Legend of Zelda II (1988)

A blast from the past, Legend of Zelda II is quite notorious for being “different” from the original game, and thus the game mechanics are now more RPG-Like. All of the battles are side-scrollers, so you have to pay very close attention to your surroundings, and your combat style. Overall, I would say that Zelda II in general is a difficult game, especially for players who are new to the Zelda franchise.

The final boss “Dark Link” Is basically the evil version of Link, and oh boy is he tuff. He will usually block, and counter your attacks, so your best option is to just spam the attack button, and hope it lands. His speed is quite infuriating, so you should try to time your attacks to ensure a hit. This is a boss battle that you will probably not get in one-go, so most likely you will be practicing a lot with this boss.

8. Shao Khan – Mortal Kombat II (1993)

Shao Kahn is the infamous Emperor of the outworld. For the longest time, he has dominated the realms, trying his best to rapidly expand his empire. Most people really enjoy this skin, and critics often claim the design of Shao Kahn to be “brilliant”.

Shao Kahn as a character is awesome, but Shao Kahn as a boss is brutally hard. He can combo you, and attack you at insanely fast speeds making it very hard to predict his next moves. Overall Shao Kahn has always been quite the tough opponent, so be prepared.

7. Mike Tyson – Mike Tyson’s Punch Out! (1987)

Ah yes, the final match. This match is like no other, you fight the final boss of Punch-Out, Mike Tyson. This boss fight is insanely difficult and requires the utmost strategy, and precision to win.

Don’t be surprised if you end up losing to this guy several times, heck you might even land a few controller throws. This boss isn’t something you can instantly beat without knowing what you’re getting into, so I would recommend practicing, and knowing his playstyle, before taking this insane challenge on.

6. Liquid Snake – Metal Gear Solid (1998)

Shortly after Liquid Snakes’ birth, he was sent to the U.K to join the S.A.S. Indeed this character is a very interesting, and key character in the story of Metal Gear Solid. Most gamers tend to struggle with his very difficult playstyle, only a few have been able to beat him off. Certainly, it isn’t impossible to beat him, but you need to be experienced, and know what you are doing if you want a chance at beating him.

It may take several attempts before you can finally beat him. Most gamers struggle with this boss, but it isn’t impossible to beat, it just takes a lot of practice and effort.

5. Yellow-Devil – Mega Man

Yello-Devil makes an appearance in multiple Mega Man games. Yello-Devil has a very interesting gimmick that allows it to form into smaller pieces, and move his pieces around. Sometimes in the heat of battle, you will have to jump over these pieces, as they could hurt you if you let them.

Although some Mega Man games are easier than others. In general, Yellow-Devil is a brutally difficult fight if you aren’t careful. The most optimal way to win this fight is to avoid every one of his attacks, and I mean EVER ONE of his attacks. Then you need to find the right opportunity to attack. If you follow these steps properly, then you might have a chance at beating the Giant yellow robot.

4. Nameless King – Dark Souls 3 (2016)

The Nameless King is thankfully an optional fight. When you first fight him, his initial name will be the “King of the Storm”. Once his wyvern is killed, he then becomes the “Nameless King”. 

The Nameless King is a stupidly hard boss that is insanely difficult to beat. Trying to beat him will be very challenging, considering he has so much speed and overwhelming power. This factor alone makes him one of the toughest bosses in all of Dark Souls.

3. Red Falcon – Contra (1987)

Red Falcon Contra is one of the hardest bosses in the entire Contra franchise. This boss is insanely difficult to read, predict, and attack. His attack speed and difficulty make him a worthy contender of the hardest bosses of all time.

Good luck getting this boss on the first try, because I myself couldn’t even beat it until like 15 attempts. This isn’t a fight you can just speed through, and win. This fight requires a lot of skill, and I mean a lot of skill!

2. Emerald Weapon – Final Fantasy VII (1997)

Final Fantasy has some tough boss fights indeed, but none compare to the dreadful Emerald. To make matters worse, this boss fight takes place underwater, and Emerald is like no other opponent.

Beating Emerald will require a lot of patience, and skill in order to prevail over it. All I can say is beating Emerald will not be an easy task, he has a lot of health and can be quite difficult for first-timers.

1. Queen Larsa Mushihimesama Futari (2006)

Mushihimesama Futari was originally a japan exclusive game until it got realized internationally on IoS. Exclusive or not, however, this game is still worthy of being one of the hardest bosses of all time. Queen Larsa is the final boss of the game so it would make since for her to be difficult, but this insanity takes it to a completely different level.

Oh boy, this fight is brutal as hell, I can’t describe how insanely difficult this fight was, it’s incomprehensible. I can’t even give a realistic strategy to this fight, because really the only way to beat her is with pure luck. There are like 1 billion laser beams that shoot out per second, so if you think you can defeat that, be my guest.


Hard bosses are always a brutal experience for many gamers. Throwing the controller, rage quitting, and frustration are all caused by your desperation to defeat the boss.

 While a difficult boss in a video game sounds really annoying, in retrospect hard bosses allows the game to give the player the utmost challenge, or the “ultimate test”.
