I don't think it's so common
ball things are more common

It's how you make the final boss big, monstrous and impressive while still retaining some sort of beauty.

People associate a big ugly brute as being stupid, and villains aren't supposed to be stupid.
>>
maybe in final fantasy, but not really a lot of jap games.

I hope that you think this is a really funny joke that you are making and that you aren't really this retarded

Eyeball monsters are the shit. I haven't grown tired of them yet.

Because of Evangelion. Meaningless religious imagery always amazes Japan no matter how nonsensical.

Because the final boss needs to come accross as godly, divine and all powerful.

Typically biblical representations give that impression off the easiest.

>>322731221
Go Nagai had that concept covered way before Evangelion

>God is the main antagonist

>>322731417
this, it's the end of a game, can you think of anything stronger to fight than the concept of a god?

The Japanese think Christian Mythos is the craziest shit
