The Most Notoriously Difficult JRPG Bosses

GamesRadar - Japanese role-playing games love to serve up boss fights in three distinct flavors. The mild ones provide a tough - but fair - challenge, testing your abilities without going too far. The sour ones are usually just some mook with a massive health bar who's defeated by spamming the attack command. And then there are the DIVINE bosses who transcend such feeble, man-made classifications to exist in a pantheon of encounters destined to break mere mortals like waves against stone.

Yiazmat wasnt hard. He just had a huge amount of HP. I mean 50 million HP, Come on!

Omega Mark XII in FFXII was much harder in my opinion. Getting to him was seriously effed up.

And Lingering Will in Kingdom Hearts 2 Final Mix was tough but if we are talking extremely tough, then Lingering Will or Mysterious Figure from Birth By Sleep were much harder.

I actually put Final Fantasy XII as the thumbnail to catch YOUR attention, and it worked. lol

Thanks for that. FFXII was indeed amazing and deserves more attention overall especially from the Final Fantasy community. Its an under-appreciated Masterpiece.

Hopefully the FFXII HD isn't far off. I cant wait to get back to that beautiful world again :)

I would have to second that motion, indeed. I absolutely adored FFXII on the PS2 and I truly hope that the remaster isn't too far off. This is a completely personal opinion, it was quite literally the last Final Fantasy game that I truly enjoyed. I never really cared for FFX for a host of reasons, and never tried FFX-2 as I didn't care for the prequel. I never tried FFXI as I don't care for online games. I didn't care for XIII and as such, I never bothered with it's sequels either. I do believe the reason I loved XII is because it was done by the same team that did the wonderous Final Fantasy Tactics back on PSX. As such, I also preferred FFVIII to FFVII, even though I would agree with many as saying that VII was the better game. :)

Omega Mk. XII was more brutal. His attacks were just broken

Bless the Demi-Fiend. I wish Atlus made him a recurring hidden boss in the main Shin Megami Tensei series. It would be even scarier if he recruited protagonists in past games to aid him in battle (which is quite possible.).
