Cynthia the champion on Diamond/Pearl. I know it's weird to mention something from pokemon but holy shit I have never struggled that much in a video game in a long time. It was kinda my own fault because a looooot of my team was weak to ground type so her Garchomp was able to practically 1 shot everyone with earthquake. I eventually beat it but that was from the constant leveling from failing at her and going through the E4 over and over again.

This fucking faggot right here, annoyed the ever living shit out of me on my latest play through of Nocturne which I have mostly been breezing through easily.

But this fucking faggot took a dozen tries because first turn he would just confuse my whole party and then RNG would shit on me and make me waste all my turns so I can't do shit and die. Repeat loading my save a dozen times until his skill misses a few people on the first turn then it was easy.

Fucking faggot.

I never lost a fight as the Old Monk and I just used the Kilij and none of my broken as fuck builds.
>>
>>323656512
I dunno, mang, Prime bosses always felt like an elaborate game of "I Spy," where your health was your time limit and you were able to stack it to such ridiculous levels that you'd never lose.

It was always a mix of
>shoot everything to see where there's a response
>failing that, wait the boss to see if something changes periodically and shoot that
>failing that, switch weapon type
>failing that, look for something related to the latest item pick up (IE, morph ball)
I'd always get there eventually. I've taken 20 minutes on a boss before (fucking Prime 3), but I can't recall ever dying to one. Always too much health to worry about that.

Aztec Falcon is pretty much the ultimate casual filter for Megaman Zero.

He's not necessarily the hardest boss in the game, but he's definitely the one who turned the more casual demographic off from playing the Zero series.

easy, seriously before the rebalance in princess you can just rape everyone with double geiser or w/e your jam is. Played as warrior and things get a lot harder. Still I was pretty diligent in slowly attacking harder enemies and ended up overleveled.

It was a fun fight, especially with that music blasting on, but honestly didn't even loose any health to him as he telegraphs his moves quite a lot and after the first pattern you can predict what he is going to do.

>>323648384

>>323658738
His last stage can only be damaged by aerial attacks, and whenever you ground stomp to get out of the way of the inevitable incoming attack you land on his freaking knee and gets hit by it anyway.

Doing the freaking thing with literally zero magic reserves was hell.
>>
>>323658738
He is hard pretty fair outside of that last phase, yes. It's not that the aerial combat is that shit (I never really liked aerial combat in any slasher game). It has that quick jump down move, the problem here is that you can often get stuck on his knee if you're too close, and that can fuck you over on the last phase.
>>323661915
Oops, this anon said that already.
Anyway
>with literally zero magic reserves was hell
That's what focus is for.
>>
>>323662080
>That's what focus is for.
On the last stage of the fight you simply don't get many opportunities to reliably utilize focus, however, because blocking and dodging are simply not available for you because of The Knee. It's basically a game of pinging at it until it dies.
Would be an excellent boss without the weak spot nonsense.
>>
>>323662218
You can exploit the AI quite easily. Bait him into doing a long range attack like the flail smash or those javelin rockets and get a few hits in. Then he does some close range AoE, you get some distance and bait another long range attack etc.

I could only play this on the 360, which for some reason, didn't get the patch that fixed the framerate AND upgraded the models and textures, so it was absolutely miserable, there was no strategy to the fight, just spamming zero-shift and praying I didn't get hit, which accounted for almost 30 retries

The absolute final battle in the core is just as shitty, because no one bothered to notice that all of the particle effects and small debris models were dropping the framerate to embarassing lows, that fight ALSO called for a fuckload of retries, since the input lag was unbearable, and dodging shit was yet another luck-based ordeal

Konami pretty much abandoning the 360 version while calling the semi-fix the PS3 got "good enough" was a good indicator that they were starting to really fucking suck. I don't know how someone fucks-up a decade-old PS2 game that bad considering how the MGS HD collection fared
