Who do you think is the hardest final boss in video games?

My vote would have to go toward Robot Ridley from Metroid: Zero Mission (GBA).

There's an interesting gimmick to this fight: If you have not collected 100% of the item pickups in the game, this fight is an absolute joke, even on hard mode. However, if you have collected everything, kick your heels behind your head and kiss your ass goodbye, especially on hard mode. One of his attacks can take off 300 of your 699 units of health. The attacks themselves aren't too terribly hard to dodge, but it is extremely easy to make a mistake or two while dodging, usually resulting in getting hit by one attack and chained right into the attack that hits for 300.

Discuss. Who do you think is the hardest final boss?

I would imagine the Tohou like games would have some of the hardest final bosses. Those games can be insane.

Out of the games that I beat the final bosses for, I would have to go with...

Great Redips - Mega Man X: Command Mission

Shit goes down in this fight. If you use the wrong parties, you are fucked. If you get unlucky, you are fucked. Part 1 of the fight is all about survival and stealing a Super Force Metal. Part 2 comes along, there is another Super Force Metal to steal and you get to actually try to win.

The party issue...you CAN NOT, and I mean CAN NOT have X, Zero, and Axl in the first part because Hyper Modes are NEEDED to survive or else you will get fucked over by statuses. Marino is needed in both parts to steal the Super Force Metal. But wait, there's more...you have 6 characters in the party due to a certain plot twist, how nice. That means that in order to efficiently use Marino in part 2 to steal, you need to have Gain Hypers in your inventory which are easy to find. And Part 2 is no pushover, you need to beat the Super Force Metal on Great Redips in order to efficiently deal damage (or else he can heal and the Super Force Metal can also attack you), which means it's not just attack said boss like in most RPGs.

Then there are the statuses. Deux Ex Machina can inflict EVERY status in the game on all characters. The ways to avoid getting the statuses? Force Metal, Hyper Mode, and getting lucky.

And before you say "So it's all statuses?", Great Redips isn't a pushover when it comes to damage either. It's basically a fight that runs completely on luck, and even when you are prepared you can lose easily.

I've had less trouble with BFA in FFX, Sephiroth in FFVII, hell even the final boss of KH when I didn't know what I was doing.

Braskas final aeon was a chump. Hardest boss for me personally was ultimate Rugal in capcom vs snk2. Shin akuma was hard too but he didn't have a move that filled up the whole screen pick you up hit you 3 times and knock you down again. He had massive priority amd you woud be lucky to get in and hit him without him winning the draw and fucking you up.

Those ameabas in megaman 9 and wily himself. Hard as hell only just beat them this year.

Wait, wait wait. So if I don't pick up every power, I can defeat Robot Ridley easily? How the fuck that make sense, I mean, how could I miss like half the powers up in the game and somehow beat him, yet, when I get him all, he can kick the living shit of me. How does that make sense?

More or less, yeah. I guess the game decided, "Oh, you went out of your way to get everything? Then how about we turn it up a notch?!"
