7 Unwinnable Boss Fights You Can Beat If You're Good Enough

  • Published on Jul 18, 2019
  • If a game really wants to put you in your place, the easiest way is to drop you into a boss fight, usually early in the game, that is unwinnable. This reminds you that you, the player, are a worthless scrub who will have to go on a hero's journey before you can defeat the big baddie.
    Except sometimes those bosses aren't quite impossible to beat - whether that's through cunning, skill or just sheer bloody mindedness. These seven bosses might seem like they're just a delivery vector for a humiliating story cutscene, but you can actually defeat them.

    I dont think nemesis was meant to be unkillable. But after the first one left me completely drained of green herbs and .9mm's i just ran from then on.

    My first playthrough of KH1 i reloaded about 15 times and redid the encounter to win. Although its mostly a cosmetic change(squall also aknowledges the encounter in the optional arena later) the huge xp boost on just sora makes twilight town and wonderland a lot easier suprisingly.

    Leon may win either way in that fight but it is far from unbeatable and isn't even in the top ten of hard boss fights in KH. Tales of Symphonia has a boss fight about halfway in and consists of three separate fights/bosses. The first one is fairly average but the second is HELLISH and the story will continue if you win or lose. The fight AFTER is entirely unbeatable without a New Game+ file and even then requires multiple play throughs and/or serious grinding as this mad man is literally doing max damage with every attack.

    I remember watching a speed run of dark souls and the guy ran into the archdukes library, jumped off an elevator the wrong way, and skipped the unwinnable fight against seethe, running straight to the arena where he could be killed instead

    14:10 when i see a girl with a greatsword and a bunch of archers that's happened:
    me, as a powerful girl magician: what do you think you going for?
    her: well...arrest you?
    also me: *spam powerful aoe of fire*
    Wynne: *spam powerful aoe of ice*
    stan: *rush into the melee*

    after this fight, no one left standing, except me and my friend (anora flew the battle lol)

    and some people whining about these archers, me i say pfff...

    Guys.... I just realized that the Dragon Age: Origins fight is SUPPOSED TO BE UNBEATABLE. It’s the main reason why I didn’t replay the game (I thought it was mandatory) and didn’t want to go through that battle again....

    Shenmue had one of those fights. But if you won well you actually won the fight. I always like those types of boss fights.

    Wait.. what about 'Gades - 1st encounter' in Lufia - Rise of the Sinistrals? Yeah.. you have to be much more skilled and you should have some (approx. 20) more level-ups... but hey you can win this...

    Really, including Resident Evil 3: Nemesis? That isn't an UNWINNABLE fight, you're bloody MEANT to fight him for the custom weapons parts. Stupid list.

    There's also Doku in Ninja Gaiden which can one-hit kill you with a specific attack, but if you manage to kill him you immediately unlock the next difficulty level instead of after the whole playthrough.

    Omega MK. Xii from Final Fantasy XII. WITHOUT reverse+decoy bullshit, or other lame tactics. Only normal combat, & that's the hardest battle of any game for me. Can be done, & managed to do so at level 75 or so, but it's REALLY challenging. MGS2 on Extreme difficulty had some nasty parts too.
