I haven't seen the topic appear yet, so.... Anyone ever fight a really hard boss? As in, one that can totally stop you from beating a game, whether it
Remember the Most insane bosses thread back on the old forum. That was awesome so let's bring it back. The idea is simple this is a place to discuss bosses that give you trouble and why.
I'll start us off with Adachi from Persona 4. Persona 4 has plenty of bosses that could make this list whether it be Shadow Yukiko or Shadow Mishio to arguable Shadow Naoto. Actually yeah Shadow Naoto is a candidate with her ability to silence and drain SP at the same time. There are plenty of others who could qualify but for now I'll be talking about Adachi. At first glance he doesn't seem to hard with Vorpal blade dealing a large amount of physical damage and Zio/Garudyne to hit hard with Lightning and wind damage respectively. Then you realize he has Heat Riser. A move that boosts all his stats and Dekunda which negates any debuffs you can put on him and more then one way to preform instant kills. The first is with Mudoon which is a dark attack with a 50% chance to instantly kill the target. On the bright side if you have a Persona with a resistance to dark attacks like Izanagi the main character is safe. Which is a good thing because if the main character dies at any point it's game over. But that won't do jack against the combination of Evil Smile and Ghastly Wail! Evil Smile is a move that has the chance to inflict fear on all party members. Fear in itself is a big problem as it has a chance to completely immobilize anyone afflicted with it (I hope it didn't happen to immobilize your healer). Then add on Ghastly Wail. A move that instantly kills anyone suffering from fear and completely bypasses resistances. the only way to stop this is if you have a Homunculus but those a very rare in 4 and will only stop one instant kill attack. So the fight quickly becomes a race to kill Adachi before he can pull off a Ghastly Wail on the protagonist. At least he doesn't have that much health. BUT IT GETS WORSE! Right after you defeat Adachi you have to fight Ameno-Sagiri who has much much more health hits harder and can move twice and it slowly dawns on you as to why Adachi doesn't have more health. EVEN BETTER! You don't get healed after the fight with Adachi. Meaning not only do you have to beat him before he instantly kills you now you have to do it using as little SP as possible. ♪HAVE FUN♪. He may not be that difficult to beat but he sure is a pain in the ass.
Sad thing is. He's not even in my top 10 hardest bosses. not even close.
