Tropedia

  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Boss battles are the hallmark of almost all video games. Oftentimes players will discuss bosses that are the most difficult, in an attempt to gain advice and possible strategies to use against them. Other bosses are complete jokes, and fade into obscurity, unless they're made fun of. However, some boss battles are incredibly fun, and it's a joy to face them regardless of difficulty. It can be for a number of reasons, ranging from the uniqueness of the boss itself, to the scenario, or in some cases, just for having an awesome song to go with the battle. Beating said boss often comes with a significant ego boost, and may even cause some players to create extra save files just so this boss can be fought at any time. This may overlap with That One Boss for those who love challenges.

This is quite obviously a Subjective Trope. Also see Awesome: Video Game Levels.

NOTE: Personal stories about beating an awesome boss unusually quickly or using an unconventional yet effective method should go on the Troper Tales wiki or in the forums rather than on the pages in this index.

Examples of Awesome Bosses/Video Game include:
