Spoilers ahead, so be warned.

Shao Khan from MK9 needs to be on the list of worse boss fights ever.

Scorpion rapes him everytime with his teleport attack.Teaches Shao Kahn a lesson with his CHEAP hammer throw,tackles,and almost 1-Hit KO X-Rays. Shao Kahn is a real b*tch to fight with characters without ranged attacks. I'm not so good with the other characters, just Liu Kang and Scorpion.

I don't doubt it (Scorpion is a monster and is my favorite character), but I'm talking about Story mode Shao Khan, and they force you to use Raidan -.- It's disgusting :(

Radec from KillZone 2......that cheap, good for nothing, four flushing sack of shit! Apart from that I loved that game :)

Worst boss battle in history is Vader in Feces Unleashed II.

First of all, you fight him 3 hours into the game. I thought it was just an introductory meeting where I wouldn't be able to kill him till the end of the game. Sadly, that was the end of the game!

Secondly, he starts warping around the dam room and you can't attack him and it was the most horrid, depressing boss battle in the history of gaming.

I'd rather play Adventure on Atari for 40 hrs straight.
