    Lucifer - Ghosts 'N Goblins. Also a terribly difficult guy to even get to. And you have to beat the game twice to actually be credited with beating the game. Also it's the only game I know of that starts with our hero (Arthur) apparently basking in the afterglow of a cemetery blowjob.

    Super Metroid was SNES.


    Gotta go with Ghost and Goblins as well. Too fucking hard to get there..

    First castlevania and goddamned Dracula and his 2 forms. If you don't have the boomerang and the 3x with a lot of hearts, you are screwed.

    As a kid I never beat many bosses, I never made it to any bosses either, I wasn't very good at video games. Although I did beat Donkey Kong Country 1 & 2 on Snes, and Banjo Kazooie on N64.

    I don't wanna be greedy so early in the thread so I'm limiting myself to two in the early goings.

    Dark Queen - Battletoads. The hardest game I have ever played. I think one of the things that made her tough was the pressure of knowing that if I failed I'd have to again slog through the nearly impossible to get back to her.

    This guy was the hardest of the 3 final bosses of Ninja Gaiden. The elusive Jaquio.

    I was the first kid in my class to defeat Ganon in The Legend Of Zelda. Hard as shit. It was the spring of '86.

    Nothing better than watching some pimple-faced kid beat an NES game (that took me months to beat) in ten minutes on youtube

    Very tough. The first form is not bad but that metal thing that emerges is really hard. I did manage to win though. Once.

    I also said Gaiden. I have the second game which uses the same engine as the first. Also very hard game.

    Yeah, it's a real test of patience.

    IIRC, you had to duck and dodge the entire fight until the last minute and then you could take Mike out

    For the 1st round the first 1:30 he throws the mega punch which knocks you down in one shot. If you dodge fast enough you can get in 2 quick jabs per dodge. After that he does the eye wink punch and "purple flash" punches. He's pretty easy after the first 1:30.
