What's Your Favorite Boss From The Metroid Series?

Postby Xan Kriegor » 07.26.10 3:57pm

Admin Edit: Merged topics. Please use this thread for "Favorite Boss" discussion from now on.

I think that the first form of Metroid Prime is the best cause there's so much build up to this creature and it ends up being a fun boss fight.




What are your favorite bosses? 8)

I really enjoyed fighting the Hunters in Prime 3. Good old dodging and shooting... and oh my god the music... I wish they would of had more of these types of bosses in the Prime series as opposed to the more puzzle oriented ones (though Quadraxis was awesome).

I pretty much liked all the boss fights from Fusion too. Some of them were really tough the first time through. Not too big a fan of the bosses in Metroid or Super though. Much too easy.

Gandrayda from Prime 3, hands down. Tense music, sexy character, and an attack pattern that requires you to keep changing as she does. I almost never use Hypermode when fighting Gandy, so that I can savor the feeling of fighting her.

On the flip side, Rundus dies in less than two minutes (assuming you play your Hypermode onslaughts well). At least Gandy and even Ghor have more involving fights, but Rundus felt like a joke, even for an early-level boss.

:metroid: = Ultimate Warrior
8) = Ultimate Warrior
Therefore, 8) = :metroid:

Now you know why they call it Metroid.

I guess I'm the opposite. I prefer bosses that require you to perform a complex series of actions in order to damage them and that require a certain number of hits to kill, rather than bosses with big health meters that you just shoot a lot (not to say that those can't be enjoyable too when done correctly). Zelda bosses, basically. But to each their own.

Oh I love the "puzzle" bosses too. To be honest the Zelda team should be looking more closely at the bosses of the Prime series. Zelda bosses are weaksauce for the most part (there are a few exceptions), offering next to no challenge.

I personally like the bosses that look big and menacing and pose a challenge.

Favourite boss... Well, I'd have to conclude with Dark Samus 2. Awesome backdrop, improved Dark Samus arsenal, and her 'death' scene is pretty epic. That is all.
I have little imagination when it comes to signatures. >.>

Dark Samus. People always talk about how Samus moves like a tank in the Primes, but fighting Dark Samus makes me feel like some kind of Super Saiyan Dragonball Z character. I move my fastest and am the most aware of my surroundings when fighting her.

She means more to me as an enemy than SA-X simply because of the fact that she's a whorebag version of Samus, not just a shell of Samus at her stongest. Dark Samus became a character; she wasn't just an enemy that wanted to kill you. Hell, she didn't care. She had an agenda of her own that didn't include Samus. If you'd have just left her alone, she wouldn't have personally taken issue with you, but if you got killed in passing, then whatever. Dark Samus is a powertripping heifer and I love that about her. :dark:

And then the aftermath when fighting her the first time - you get to revel in the fact that you and your doppelganger just shut down EVERYTHING like Madagascar during a pandemic.

I Loved the Dark Samus fights aswell.



They were so, "Epic".

I just loved to move around fast and dodge Dark Samus's attacks.

What's YOUR hardest Metroid Boss? & what's your favorite?

Postby R9WiLdShOt » 08.12.10 7:44am

There's no right or wrong in this. I just never posted a topic with anyone at all agreeing with me on anything! Converse about what your hardest Metroid Boss was and your top reasons for it. Then, tell us all what's your FAVORITE Metroid Boss.

My hardest Metroid Boss:

Metroid (NES) - Kraid:

-This guy was hard to even GET TO.
-Once you're there, you die sooner than you can even damage him.
-I couldn't beat him without using the NAR password.
-I thrashed my gamecube controller from this boss.

My Favorite Metroid Boss:

Metroid Prime 2 and Metroid Prime 3 - Dark Samus:

-It's cool to fight somebody evenly matched to you.
-She was a psycho phazon loaded enemy.
- She wasn't "nigh impossible" to beat (other words, challenging and not pissingly-hard).
-SHE HAS AN AWESOME SONG.
I didn't really notice until now, but when did you become a furry?
OH MY GOD HE'S TRANSFORMED INTO ONE OF THEM!!

My favorites are as follows in no particular order:
Dark Samus (especially the final one in Prime 2)
Omega Ridley (also any version of Ridley because he's that epic)
Rundas (he was easy as hell, but he's my favorite Prime 3 Hunter, and his boss music can't be beat)
DEATH COMES RIDIN' ON A MIDNIGHT TRAIN

My namesake. No matter the difficulty, or how badly I'm screwing up, he's a blast to fight.

From the 2D games, Torizo was crazy fun to fight as well.

Now, I just need to check my e-mail more often, so I notice these things
