Today’s Question:

Day 4: What was the toughest boss that you had to face?

There have been plenty of tough bosses in the realm of video games. My first experience with the Dark Souls franchise quickly showed me that the world is a horrible and dark place for gamers lol.

Scorpion Robotnik-

I remember playing Sonic Spinball as a kid and getting to the Scorpion Robotnik boss. I was sooo angry because I could never beat him. I’d either  die from the poison he would spray or fall all the way back down to the beginning of the level. As a kid this really made me mad because I couldn’t beat it so I did the only thing I could think of.. I called my older brother to beat the level for me lol. Sure enough Kenny made it easy by jumping inside of the Scorpion Robotnik and hitting him in the core. Pretty soon the boss’s tail broke off and it was a matter of time before I was propelled to the next section.


Elite Four Pokemon Fire Red –

The Elite Four were hard for me to beat in my youth. I would try and beat them without using any revives or portions which didn’t work out too well in the beginning.


Jack of Blades-


Jack of Blades in Fable was a boss that took me a while to beat. WithFable, you can’t move as fast as you would want so when you are in the midst of a combination move, the only thing to do is try to dodge if you miss your target. I would miss and get chopped up by Jack forcing me to rethink my strategies.


The boss I’m selecting for the hardest in my gaming career has to be Shao Khan from Mortal Kombat 2.

Fighting games are super fun but I have to admit that I am not good at them. When you are facing the final boss in Mortal Kombat 2, I choked and could never beat him. As with previous mentions, I simply passed the controller to my brother who finished off the villain for me. I think my problem is that as a kid I used to just press buttons to find out how to do moves. I would remember the pattern of buttons that I would press and those would be my default moves. I never took the time to go to practice or exercise modes which show you the moves list. As I got older, I started going through the tedious task and became better at fighting games. If I can take on Shao Kahn now, I’m sure I would be the victor!

Tomorrow’s Question:

Day 5: If you can have a video game weapon, which would you choose?


What was the toughest boss that you had to face? Have you ever beaten them? Am I the only one passing the controller to my brother lol? Let’s talk video game bosses!

  1. The boss I remember giving me the most trouble was Omega Pirate from Metroid Prime. It just kept killing me, but I finally took it out. That was the best feeling ever, haha.

    1. Definitely! Overcoming an obstacle gives you such pride. As a gamer, when I completed Fable completely by myself, it was the first time I didn’t pass the controller to my brother. Probably why I have such fond memories of that game. Thanks for sharing and welcome back!

  2. I can’t remember many sticking out from my memory, I know there has been plenty! But most recent one, the Valkyrie Queen in God of War. She took me hours to defeat 😪

  3. I remember my sister would always give me the controller when it was her turn on Super Mario Bros 3 and she got to bosses! I was too stubborn to do the same (though I’d always ask for hints in frustration!)

    1. Haha I’m sure I’d pass the controller for Mario as well. I didn’t become an independent gamer until my middle school days! Thanks for sharing!

  4. Haha that’s awesome that your big bro was there to help you with Sonic Spinball. That was one of the Sonic games I never got into because I just couldn’t get the hang of it. I sucked at it. lol
    I really should try to re-play it sometime now that I’m older and see if I could get the hang of it any better. 🙂
