Favorite Boss?

So who was your favorite boss in Skyward Sword? I didn't see any other polls asking about your favorite boss, sorry if there is one! Personally my favorite is Abyssal Leviathan Tentalus.

Re: Favorite Boss?

Koloktos is easily my favorite boss in Skyward Sword. I like the whip and I think it's a little underused in the game so this lets the item shine for a moment. It's packed with action and it's not interrupted by unnecessary cutscenes or waiting for the boss to make a random move to expose his weakness (at least if you know what you're doing). The battle also brings back one of my favorite mechanics from the Wind Waker - picking up enemy weapons. It's kind of weird that they designed something like that merely for one boss fight. The boss is also graphically the most interesting looking, it's got the best boss music in the game (although it's shared with Moldarach) and even the name Koloktos sounds pretty cool when you pronounce it.

Re: Favorite Boss?

Kolotkos was just epic, but, once you fight him and figure out how to beat him, I recognize his patterns too easily and the fight gets too easy.

So then after that probably Ghiriham V2 and Demise.

Re: Favorite Boss?

Either Ghirahim V3, Koloktos or Demise. I liked the challenge and how they actually felt like fights. The rest of the bosses felt pretty lame in comparison being the generic "3-hits and dead" brand of boss. Thought, the battles with The Imprisoned with Groose helping you out was pretty cool. I'm surprised how seamless and fun a co-op boss battle in a Zelda game was.

Re: Favorite Boss?

Tentalus is my favorite. The battle is very easy, but it was fun and the boss design was just very neat.

Re: Favorite Boss?

Hard to decide. There are several good bosses. The later bosses were veery nice. I liked Demise. I also liked the fights leading up to it. It seemed really epic. Kolocktos was good. The later Imprisoned fights are good.

Bilocyte seemed more like a miniboss than a big boss.

Re: Favorite Boss?

I liked Tentalus, but Kolotos is #1.

The joy I got from using its own giant sword to chop off its limbs and mangle its inner core is on an entirely different level.

Re: Favorite Boss?

Koloktos is awesome. Using its sword against itself was very Wind Waker-esque (remember how you could pick up enemies' weapons in TWW?).

Re: Favorite Boss?

It's a tie between Ghirahim or Demise for me.


I'm leaning more on Ghirahim's side since his battles were just too fun, and difficulty definitely exists. He doesn't have the usual Zelda "weakspot" of shooting an eye or some obvious part of the body.

Re: Favorite Boss?

Ghirahim. He looked the best, was the most difficult and you actually had his character build up and develop, which made it all the more meaningful when you beat him to the ground.

I would have liked Tentalus more if he didn't look like something out of Monster's Inc. The same goes for Scaldera. I feel Demise is somewhat overrated but each to their own!

Re: Favorite Boss?

Whenever I go to fight something at the thunder dragon I keep selecting Demise, so I gotta go with him. Ghirahim would be my choice if he wasn't so darn easy. Once you figure him out he's one of the easiest bosses in the game.
Demise however remains the most difficult for me to predict even as you understand how his mechanics work.

Re: Favorite Boss?

I liked Tentalus because of the sheer awesomeness of the sound effect that plays when he is vulnerable, but I had to go with Koloktos. Grabbing your foe's swords and hitting it with it is a fantastic concept and I hope it gets used more in future Zelda games.

Re: Favorite Boss?

Ghirahim round 3. Nothing quite as viscerally satisfying as nailing him with a charged stab to stun him.

Demise is a close second. The first time I beat him, I didn't even think to copy his lightning trick, and had to do it the hard way. Whoo, that was a battle.

Re: Favorite Boss?

Currently, my favorite would be Scaldera. It has really been the only boss who I had some fun fighting.

Koloktos was kinda fun though. But I guess I didn't enjoy it as much at first because half of the time I had no idea what to do. <_< It took me awhile to realize that I also had to slash its legs off in addition of its arms.

Re: Favorite Boss?

Koloktos for sure. He was tough, and kept you on your toes.

I liked the third fight with Ghirahim the most. Mostly because he finally looked somewhat menacing and not so.... blah.

While the set up and playing field for Demise was cool, he felt something like a push over compared to some of the Imprisoned fights. But still an enjoyable conclusion to an awesome game.

Re: Favorite Boss?

I loved all the fights with Ghirahim, but round 3 was most definitely my favorite.

It was similar to the other two fights, but still unique and challenging in a different way. I felt so epic jumping down from the platform with a final blow. When he made that BIG ASS zweihander appear near the end of the fight, I nearly wet myself.

Others I enjoyed fighting were Koloktos (though not initially) and Scaldera. It took me forever to figure out you had to throw a bomb in Scaldera's mouth. I felt so stupid after, because it was an obvious reference to King Dodongo from Oot!

Re: Favorite Boss?

As soon as I saw him sucking air I knew, though at first I didn't know I needed to follow him down when he rolled to the bottom. I liked those fireballs he spat. It was a good boss. Even when he's stunned, he can still move that eye around, which was a first I think.

Re: Favorite Boss?

My favorite "boss" is the hoard battle right before the third Girahim battle. That wasn't an option, so I just chose Girahim :/

Re: Favorite Boss?

Well the game considers it about the same, since it's an option in the desert dragon's lightning round. That horde battle was epic.

Re: Favorite Boss?

Koloktos. Because you just beat the Hell out of this guy with his own weapon, you can completely dismember him and have no mercy on this guy at all.
