    Dun think I can nail it down to one, matey. Though Emerald Weapon from FFVII did ruffle me sails quite a bit.

    Humm, maybe Final Fantasy boss cameo in Mario RPG.
    I'm sure I met a lot of hard boss battles, but currently I can think only about Mario RPG on Snes.

    Well, a boss can be hard by its power (you always die instantly and can't do a thing), or by it's battle length (that's the best boss battles for me! not too hard but requiring a lot of time and tactics to defeat him).

    I remember the Dark Aeons in FFX being a bit scary. Also Long Guis from FFXIII although technically they're not bosses.

    The higher-level GameGuadias in Guadia Quest are so challenging that I couldn't beat them, even with the Guadias from the Heaven Tower-thing on my side.

    Tales of Vesperia's secret boss.

    I remember beating it with 0 items, 3 dead teammates, and Rita with about 14 HP, being thrown up in an attack seconds before taking damage, one of her spells hit the boss and it died.
    It was the craziest most insanely fun fight i'd ever gone through in any game. I still remember that fight quite fondly even though it was a while ago.

    Well that was the hardest/funnest.
    Straight hardest was Lucifer on Devil Survivor. Fuck that asshole.

    Well, I've played way too many RPG's, but from the recent years the hardest one was the Star Ocean: Till the End of Time for me, including all those bosses I had to kill on the way (lucky me managed to get all the bosses in the way before the final boss battle... T_T)

    Why you may ask?
    Because I had only water type abilities on me which didn't do shit on him. Then, a little after I beat him, I unlocked ignite. The most frustrating boss I have ever fought.

    When you fight Bowser for the 3rd time in Mariko & Luigi Bowser's inside story.
    So difficult,when you can't do xp at this moment.

    He interrupts most abilities anyway IIRC, I beat him by just spamming shield and countering. The hardest RPG boss.. Not sure, I don't really play many RPGs. Bowser X from Bowser's Inside Story was pretty bloody hard, though. And the second, purple Lavos, I suppose. (I think it was an optional boss)

    Do you mean Freya? Given the right strategy she's not massively hard...i'd say that something like Nebilim from Tales of the Abyss would be more challenging, at least i found her to be. (that's having beaten both).

    Well, on Tales of the Abyss I managed to beat Nebilim in all difficulties since I just love the combat and stuff (and I wanted the outfit you get as reward for beating her), although it took a lot of time and effort to do it. .-."

    i dont knnow if it is hard but, in fossil fighters champions,i got stuck at the part where you fight against a guy that have 2 dinosaurs and one nautilus named parapu, it has been almost 1 year without victory, because i ever tried to kill the first 2 dinosaurs, then the parapu .
    he ever used his bewilder beam , that takes 80% of the hp of every dinosaur on my field and put them into a confuse status.
