    What is THE greatest Zelda boss?

    Post by Cephalo the Pod on Sun 26 Aug 2012, 10:44 pm

    The Legend of Zelda franchise is notable for its consistent series of good bosses. Seriously, name one game with no good bosses. Which raises an interesting question; which of these bosses is the all-out greatest?

    Discussion about specific Zelda games is an option for those without significant knowledge of the whole franchise. Personally, I've beaten only six games (PH, SS, TP, OoT, WW, ALttP), so I don't exactly have a complete opinion, but so far:

    (Oh, by the way, I think we should consider final bosses a separate category. They tend to consist of multiple bosses in a row. It feels unfair comparing regular bosses to the likes of these climatic beasts).

    PH: Dongorongo. A excellently monstrous beast with multiple excitingly intense phases. I liked how it got up close to you to attack you directly. And you got to play as a Goron for part of it.
    SS: Koloktos. It's between this and Scaldera. Koloktos was scary. Not just disturbing. Koloktos is a very frantic boss, what with it frantically waving its massive schimitars around. And then you get to hit it with the SCHIMITARS FUCK YEAH.
    TP: Stallord. You know it. But I'll explain anyway. Huge, tactical, heat-pounding action. Very thematic, and the arena was HUGE.
    OoT: Bongo Bongo. It's freaky. I like that. It's fast, aggressive, and FREAKY. It's also big. And fre-
    WW: Gohdan. The second biggest boss from this game (I didn't enjoy Molgera as much). And it fired lots of bombs. And you beat it with bombs. Bombs? I want it.
    ALttP: Helmasaur King. Or Trinex. Or Helmy K. Or...you know what, I'm finalizing on Trinex. It's a three-headed turtle dragon. But what makes it special is its snakey second stage, where it homes in on you.

    Absolute favourite? Trinex. Favourite final boss? The one from OoT.

    Looking back at Minish Cap's bosses, they're honestly mediocre. You have two generic enemies, A Chuchu and an Octorok, just big. Mazaal is just a Gohdan rip-off. Gyorg Pair, has an interesting concept on how to defeat him, but it doesn't look cool. Gleerok is the coolest looking boss, (besides the final boss), but he's nothing special.

    Huh. I guess I'll have to play Minish Cap then. Or maybe not.

    It's definitely still worth playing. Besides it's lacklustre bosses, it's possibly my 2nd favourite 2D Zelda.
