Sometimes, in an otherwise mediocre game, there is one boss that is just several leagues better than anything else in the game. For me, that boss is Stallord in The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess.

A giant skeleton that you have to hit by basically skateboarding into him? Super rad. His 2nd phase is the most fun Zelda boss battle, hands down. Riding up a giant pillar on your "skateboard" and jumping into him, just smacking this fool in the face.

I have a separate save file right before this boss so I can replay it over and over.

What are your favorite bosses? The most fun, the most memorable, the most difficult? Lay it on me!

The final end boss of Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice. It's such an emotionally rich closure to the story and Senua's journey. It really resonated with me!

Do MMOs count for this? Because if so, Barbariccia in Final Fantasy XIV is the most fun I’ve had in a long time, and not just because Final Fantasy IV is one of my favorite games.

Spoilered because it’s brand new content.

Definitely Emerald and Ruby Weapon in FFVII. They are optional but I was grinding hard to prepare for those battles and I failed several times. It was really sweaty and so much fun to figure out strategies to stay alive in those fights.

The Nyx Avatar battle at the end of Persona 3. Nyx's design is fantastic and the end of the game is so perfect.

The boss fight with the Guardian in Darksiders 2. You're on a horse, which is always fun, and the music that plays during this fight is incredibly epic. It's just a well crafted and satisfying encounter.
