10 Most Anticlimactic Boss Fights

Some of the most famous moments in gaming history involve a climactic boss encounter; from Bowser at the end of Super Mario Bros, to the mothership in Phoenix. As well as being the climax in terms of gameplay, these fights are also intrinsically linked with the game’s story. The boss will often have been a main antagonist that’s been hyped up throughout the game, with the resolution of the plot tied in with their defeat.

Occasionally though, boss fights can just feel… anticlimactic. Discovering that the big bad you’ve been fighting towards for 20 hours of gameplay is a pushover can cheapen the whole experience. It can also be the case that, while the gameplay was fun and challenging, the victory was ultimately pointless with regards to the story.

This list takes a look at the most anticlimactic boss fights from gaming history, the encounters that, after a ridiculous amount of build up, left players asking “Was that it?!”.

I don't agree with Fallout 3 or Demon's Souls. Both of those games are in the top 10 greatest of all time.

I'd add the first Fable's boss in there for sure.

I'm surprised Seymour is on the list, but not Yu Yevon.

I know that the "true" final boss of FFX is Braska's final aeon and that the Yu Yevon battle only exists for story purposes, but I still couldn't help feeling a little disappointed to go straight from an epic boss battle against a creature the size of a sky-scraper who pulls a sword directly from his own chest....to a battle against a floating flea. :/

Notice all the bosses listed appeared imposing. Yu Yevon was an anticlimactic encounter, but the boss itself wasn't anticlimactic as it appeared weak and WAS weak.

It was supposed to be weak. That's the whole point of Sin. The armor used to protect itself.
