Top Ten Video-Game Bosses
So in the video game world there is always gonna be a hero, or at least someone you play as so yeah. In any case the hero's usually have to go on a long ques to to defeat their enemy, they will not stop nor go fishing till they rescue the princess or end the world of evil. As always the list is in no order so please sit back and enjoy.
#10, Bowser. Bowser or King Koopa is the reoccurring enemy of Legendary Plumber Mario. Appearing in the first Super Mario Bros in 1985 the tyrannical titan of turtle toughness has been a thorn in the plumbers side for decades. Bowser is a powerful sorcerer, commander of hundreds of gunships and thousands of soldiers, Physically dominant and a good strategist yet somehow always manages to lose. In the more newer Mario games he is depicted almost like a High school Jock, strong but not exactly smart. While newer villains may have emerged in the Mushroom Kingdom Lord Bowser always manages to be one of the biggest threats in the Mario world. All Hail King Koopa!
#9, Handsome Jack. Appearing in Borderland's 2 in 2012. Jack is the head of a major corporation who comes to the fictional planet of Pandora in order to open a vault to unleash a great warrior. Jack comes off as a very sarcastic and egotistical prick. While his constant onslaughts of taunts and insults may appear funny at first it gets very old and very quick. Jack has an army of powerful robots at his command and also a very big spaceship in orbit that he can shoot lazer's out of. Jack doesn't go in brawling instead he likes to send in his goons to attack, only later in the game does he actually fight you but he still keeps his distance and uses the two wrist mounted guns.
#8, Pyramid Head. The Egypt monument loving antagonist debuted in Silent Hill 2 in 2001. Pyramid Head is the manifestation of the main character wanting to be punished, a rather twisted want if you ask me. Pyramid head usually has grey-ish skin and a skirt like clothing around his waist. The sounds of his large sword scraping against the ground is usually one of the signs he is coming. Voted one of the most iconic video game characters in the world I doubt Pyramid Head is going to be going anywhere anytime soon.
#7, Brock. The Rock Pokemon using Gym Trainer appeared in Pokemon Red and Blue in 2004 for the Game boy advance. Brock is one of the toughest Trainers in the Pokemon world and a little more so since he comes out very early in the game. Since his Pokemon are immune to electric damage Pikachu one of the starters you can use aren't entirely that helpful. In order to stand a chance you need to acquire some random Pokemon then train them till you can rival Brock's team of heavy defense hitters.
#6, Inferno. The living soul inside the sword known as Soul-edge Inferno is a monster in the battle field. If whoever wields the sword falls to an attacker Inferno can pull the attacker into his own realm and proceed to do battle with them. Like Charade Inferno is capable of switching weapons and causing all sorts of mayhem. Being the final boss of Soul Calibur 4's arcade mode Inferno has shown he is a threat for a reason.
#5, The Boss. The Boss appeared in Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater in 2004. The Boss is a legendary american female soldier who founded the Cobra Unit, a special task force. She is also known as the mother of The U.S. Special Forces. Biological mother to the revolver wielding Ocelot and mentor to the eye patch wearing Naked Snake. A master at hand to hand combat and with firearms as well. She defected to the Soviet Union under the command of Colonel Volgin in an attempt to steal a treasure known as the Philosophers Legacy. During the end events of Snake Eater, Naked Snake is tasked with defeating his former mentor in combat and is then given the name of Big Boss. While The Boss may have been known for the rest of history as a monster and a traitor a select few know she did what she needed to defend her country.
#4, Organization Xlll. Organization Xll are reoccurring bosses in Kingdom Hearts. Each of the members are powerful Nobodies, each with a powerful ability such as fire manipulation or control over the winds. The main purpose of the Organization was to create Kingdom Hearts, a massive heart shaped moon in the sky supposedly able to give back the Nobodies hearts. However in the end all 13 members were defeated by the main protagonist Sora.
#3, Kefka Palazzo. First appearing in Final Fantasy Vl this court jester quickly skyrocketed and became one of the most dangerous and evil beings in the video game world. In creating the apocalypse and calling himself the God of Magic Kefka is a dangerous man. Since not only had he destroyed the world but also gained god like powers to do so. Strange enough even with all of his magic and earth altering abilities he was ultimately killed in the ending of Final Fantasy. Although he may be dead the memories of his actions and the path of death and devastation he laid out before him will not be forgotten. This is why you don't trust clowns man, now we still have the Joker and that clown from IT to deal with.
#2, Maleficent. Maleficent has been around since Disney decided to make one of the most evil characters in cinema history. I mean come on she cursed a baby, who does that? Maleficent is a powerful dark fairy with strong ties to magic, usually using her cunning to trick and fool she does her best to get what she wants and when you can turn into a giant fire breathing dragon I feel you have the right to take whatever the hell you want. Maleficent has appeared in movie, shows books and tv and as well as Video Games. In Kingdom Hearts 1 she is one of the main threats and in Kingdom Hearts 2 while she may not play a huge role she still has her mind set on taking what she wants.
#1, Darth Vader. Darth Vader has appeared in video games, movies comics and is one of the most recognizable fictional characters in history. I don't honestly know what to say about this one since so much has been said already. Vader commands legions of troops, has a strong power over many Force abilities and is one of the best lightsaber duelists in Star Wars History. Being a both one of the main antagonists of both The Force Unleashed both 1 and 2 we have seen what Vader can do and what he will do to achieve his goals.
