    Not a fight per se, but the whole Stardust Speedway Act 3 in Sonic CD wins for me.

    Of what I've played (I'm not a big gamer):

    1.Tabuu from SSBB (VERY hard sunuvabitch to beat in story mode, but that made his death cutscene ALL the more worth it:ev: )

    2. That cyborg dude from Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. He was fun to fight, and I loved discovering I could freeze the fuel gel pools he spilled out and make him slip 'n slide all over!:lol 

    3. Both bosses from the Temple of Time in LOZ: Twilight Princess (the mini-boss black knight dude was awesome to fight in both forms, and the spider boss was priceless half-way through the fight if for nothing but Link's expression when you learn the fight's not over!)

    4. Both Bosses from Arbiter's Grounds in LOZ: Twilight Princess (that dude with the huge-ass sword had an epic death scene, and it was fun playing psuedo-pinbal with the boss)

    5.Shadow Queen from Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door. She was hard as hell to beat (that sixth star power is WORTHLESS against her), but oh so satisfying to finally vanquish!

    1. Last set of bosses in FF6
    2. Last set of bosses in FF8
    3. Shadow Of Colossus (the game, just like Prowlcharger said)
    4. Liquid Ocelot in MGS4. Totally epic battle.
    5. Vergil from Devil May Cry 3. Honestly, everytime I fought him, it was a rush and it brought you into the game.

    1. Nightmares - Link's Awakening - Probably my favorite Zelda boss ever, in my favorite game of all time
    2. Kefka - FF6 - He gets it for presentation alone
    3. Queen Metroid - Metroid 2 - There's nothing quite like a boss who takes up half the screen, requires over 100 shots to kill, and can eat you
    4. Bowser - Super Mario World - The clown head was awesome
    5. Mike Tyson - Punch Out - He gets it for being brutally difficult, I love to hate him

    1. Old Snake vs Liquid Ocelot - MGS4
    2. Chris & Sheva vs Wesker - RE5
    3. Party vs Necron - FFIX
    4. Chris & Sheva vs Wesker & Jill - RE5
    5. Snake vs Liquid - MGS

    Close runner up was the final fight against your rival at the end of Pokemon Blue/Red. So much nostalgia.

    SOOO difficult.

    I dunno if they qualify as best, but they are definitely my favorites:

    5. Abomination (Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction) -C'mon, you had to fight him and F-15 fighter jets simultaneously, and then jump up to the jets, catch them in mid flight and toss them into the Abomination to beat him. How can you not feel like a bad ass after that?

    4: Chernabog (Kindom Hearts 1) -The music alone was enough to send a chill up your spine. This guy was a beast!

    3: Ganondorf (Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time) -Light arrows are the shit! Nuff said.

    2: Sephiroth (Kindom Hearts 1) -No active time battle system this time with an overpowered team, just you and Sephiroth, mano y mano...or sword against sword. Who didn't want that?

    1: Meta Ridley (Metroid Prime)
    [​IMG]
    -First you have to shoot his damn wings off and then you get to fight him head on on the ground. I always wanted to see a full 3d fight with this classic villain, and it didn't disappoint at all!

    Ooh, I like this thread.

    5) Omega Mark XII (Final Fantasy 12) - I hate this asshole, but it was a fun fight.
    4) The Great Mighty Poo (Conkers: BFD) - Come on, he sings!
    3) Quadraxis (Metroid Prime II) - He made me almost flunk math, long story
    2) Bowser (Last Fight/Super Mario 64) - Pretty epic for me as a kid.
    1) Ganon/Ganondorf (LOZ: Ocarina of Time) - Most fun boss fight I ever played I think.

    Final battle with Ganondorf - Zelda Twilight Princess
    Twinrova - Zelda OOT (maybe not "epic" but one of my favourite fights)
    Stallord - Zelda Twilight Princess (winging around on the spinner is epic)
    Tabuu - Super Smash Bros Brawl SSE (still haven't beaten this guy)

    I don't play many video games.... so these are the four that come to mind. I don't really have a fifth.

    Seth (SF4) for being a bastard punk cheap ass son of a bitch.

    And Ultimate Rugal from any KOF game he appears in for also being a bastard punk cheap ass son of a bitch :D 


    Seriously though Psycho Mantis v Snake (MGS1) is a great battle especially for being very original at the time with the whole switching controllers.
