>>462290405benantoka is always god tier
>secret boss is from a different game
>>462291210I never knew Chronos cast Doom because of this very thing. PQ has to be the only game in existence where status effects are infinitely more effective than actual damage.
>use almost all of your mana/items fighting a hard boss>finally win>he transforms in a cut scene>the fight resumes
>>462291441>secret boss is from a different game>gameplay mechanics changes to match their game
>>462291494It is strange isn't it?And all of them are useful as fuck to boot, except Curse. >Poison does fuckloads of damage to bosses and high HP enemies>Sleep is free set up>Panic is the most powerful effect in the whole game and renders everything totally helpless, including bosses>Paralysis is like Panic-lite, not as useful but not worthless>Instant Kill makes random encounters basically stop existing, ending battles in one move>all the binds are stupidly goodIt makes it so even if you take a garbage party of magical attackers instead of phys bruisers, you can still trounce bosses, but much slower.

>>462290250Apart from the ghost navis in Battle Network, what games even do this? >>462291149Reminds me of the Shadow Realm in 7D3. The electro-jellies are strong enough to justify only going in with a repel active.

>>462292002This would be cool but also would inflict a largo amount of butthurt from normalfags
>>462293684The Puyo Puyo boss at the end of Chemical Plant Zone in Sonic Mania already made normalfags cry and 9/10 times Eggman will kill himself if you just wait and don't even actively try to connect puyos.

>>462293243>what games even do this?Dog Legendary hunting, at least as I recall it in Gen 2, not sure about the others.While not great for catching them, it actually made fighting them pretty interesting since you were either ready or not depending on what you were up to before they ran into you. Granted you also had a general idea of where they'd generate so you could avoid or engage as you like, but sometimes you might not know for sure.
>>462293243Breath of Fire III technically. They're only in a super specific spot, but they still are technically "random" encounters.
>Final boss is a sorcerer with 18 buffs that you have to dispel off him to make him stop being a cunt to fight>Most classes have no in-built way to dispel these buffs and instead have to rely on using a specific type of item>Characters that took an oath to fight against arcane forces cannot use said type of item because it's arcane powered

How would you guys define a superboss? What distinguishes it from just being called a hard bonus boss? Most of the ones I know are from JRPGs too, is it mainly used for turn-based games bosses?

>hidden easter egg is a trans pride flag
>>462307378This shouldn't be allowed in any game.
>>462307601That's not even that bad when you compare it to truly stingy games. Pokemon players take it as a point of pride to hunt shiny Pokemon in games where the rates are ~1/8000 as opposed to newer ones where you can mitigate this somewhat.
>>462290250>Superboss is a random encounter>In a game where you can see the enemies in the overworldFucking romhacks, man.

>>462293004All the loli ones, his female adults look weird.
>>462301724I love this fuck. The "oh shit" factor when he shows up in 3 because you've been dawdling too long on a floor makes you sprint toward the stairs if you're still low level. Feels fucking great when you eventually kick his ass. I just wish that he appeared sooner or would chase you across floors for a while so that he was more of an imminent threat.

>>462310726The Kancolle one and the demon one were alright looking
>Superboss has a specific set of rules>Instant kills you if you break any of them, no matter what
Super boss is the main character of the first game’s credits theme song changes into the last stage of the first game becomes an ally in the 2nd game when you beat the secret boss of the regular enemies become hidden enemies and are totally useless MYSTERY levels in the fifth play through of new game+ is the final boss of the tutorial love interest animated by a porn artist
>>462310815It's EOIV, Warped Savior without weakening chemicals. People figured out that if you prepare 5 force gauges outside of combat, you can use one otherwise fairly useless skill (too costly with a minor effect) to stun him on that turn with priority, meaning he wastes the effect of his eye opening instead of wasting your party with it.
>>462310182I know this doujin game Proto Sphere has you fight this chick named Sora from a game with the same name. She has her dash (which makes her immune to plenty of things) she has free flight, being a shmup character, and one of her phases has you fight inside a circle, just like a spinoff of the series she's from.Eggman's Puyo match in Mania.I can't think of any other boss that does it to such a degree.
>boss fights you as if they're the protagonist of their own game
>>462311145Even better>boss doesn't tell you these rules ahead of time so you have to learn them all by trial and errorElizabeth is a fucking nightmare blind. The optional bosses of DDS2 on the sun are pretty nuts too. Shiva and Vishnu have weird patterns that will fuck your shit if you don't get them down.
>If you taunt the boss he taunts right back at you
>>462294094What? How? That boss was fantastic.
>>462311589>final postgame superboss is a the tokusatsu hero who has helped you the whole game, was a major NPC in the two previous games, and fights you because you're about to slay a baby dragon that's the last hope of a dead universe
>>462311907>Boss taunts you as he kills you
>>462311997>fantasticWhat does tokusatsu mean and why would I kill a baby?

>>462312161gg no re

>superboss is a space shooter segment>its the only space shooter segment in the entire game
>>462306593So how old is he? He didn't say
>>462312568Furi was a shit game, but that was especially shit.
>>462312201Like a Power Ranger.He's ascertaining if you should be allowed to decide if the baby dragon lives or dies.I'd have to explain almost the whole general plot of the game to say why you're choosing to kill it or not (I let it go), but in general, it's deciding if you want to let it continue a cycle of suffering in another world, for their inhabitants to handle when it makes them, or to snuff it out and the new world with it.
>>462300694>Ridiculously toughMore like impossible barring extreme RNG or cheesing (which still fucking requires RNG). To this day Demifiend is the only RPG superboss that I wasn't autistic enough to beat....it will never stop haunting me.
>>462290250I kinda regret finished Persona 5 without ever fighting the Reaper. Maybe I'll go back and do a NG+ someday
> super boss is the protagonist of a different spin off series and is at the end of a long dungeons with no rest / save points inside>said boss has attacks with unique mechanics that are never used anywhere else.> said bosses games final boss is fought right after with no healing in between
>>462313406>long dungeons with no rest / save points insideOne part of me loved those 100 floor gauntlets in Paper Mario TTYD and Phantasy Star 0, but at the same time, I have no idea how I had the patience to do a whole 4 hour+ marathon of one dungeon in a single sitting.Especially Phantasy Star 0, 5 rooms to clear/escape per floor.
>>462306245Must be post/endgame and stronger than the final bossIf there are multiple in one game that fulfill this criteria, then it is the strongest one among them
>>462313631It's this>>462312769, 7th Dragon 3.Essentially he wants to know if you should be allowed to decide if the new world should be allowed to have a chance or kill that chance immediately before the dragon renews the whole cycle of slaughter that you just ended.

>>462308730Shinyfag reporting in. My last full odds hunt (1/8192 chance every reset) took me four days. The scariest part is four days of soft resetting is considered significantly lucky. Some people do this shit for literal months.
>>462290250Superboss has ridiclously high HP that even at level 99 the only way to beat him is to spam ridiculous game-breaking cheese tactics
>>462317601You could have at least posted Ruby Weapon. Emerald Weapon is fucking easy. Just avoid getting TPK'd by Aire Tam Storm by equipping less Materia.
>>462317601That's not true. You can fight normally if you're max level with all the best materia.

>Final Boss literally rapes you
>post game superbosses are just stat walls with insane numbers you have to grind past, with no unique or fun or strategic mechanics otherwiseFuck FFX's post game was awful. You just had to sphere grind for days until you had enough HP to not get one shot, then do nothing but spam wakka's limit because it was the only thing that did damage in a timely manner. Over and over for every post game boss
Name one game OP
>>462319445>>post game superbosses are just stat walls with insane numbers you have to grind past, with no unique or fun or strategic mechanics otherwiseSo all Square superbosses?
>>462291210Wait what? Etrian let's bosses be affected by ailments and that game's still very difficult. Why's PQ easy?
>>462309424based Bible-thumper putting w*iter scum in their place
>>462320052Because in PQ, it's extremely easy to inflict ailments that totally disable the boss, and so reliably that most bosses literally cannot do a single thing over the course of a fight.Take for example the Ur-Devil. Very powerful, very hard to beat without hypercheesing it, but still able to be poisoned (and I think one other ailment) and suffer leg bind I think. Then take the Reaper or the Clockwork God in Persona Q.You inflict Panic on these bosses, and the fight's as good as won. They will sit there hitting themselves for as long as you can stick the ailment.
