The final boss of the video game medium defined all of our hopes and fears. They defined the last obstacle before we attained out ultimate goals. They defined what would be in store for us at the end of our long adventure. They sometimes even haunted us in our dreams (like when I was dreaming of running away from Bowser as he was spitting fireballs at me. It actually turned out to be my dog breathing in my face). In this list, we will go through the most memorable final bosses of the video game medium in hopes of rekindling some of these haunting phenomena. We just hope they don't haunt us now like they did when we were 12 years old, but we're honest enough to know they probably will, since we haven't grown up.
