Top Ten Dragon Quest Bosses-- Suggestions?
Posted 13 April 2012 - 03:07 AM
As some of you know, I'm a member of the Chaos Theatre, a forum of people like Joshscorcher and the Autarch of Flame who make countdowns.
I've decided to throw my hat in the ring with "Top Ten Dragon Quest Bosses"
However, you guys get to help me with suggestions!
*Spin-off series bosses are allowed
*One per game limit
*Criteria to be met is uniqueness, (If they have one) the music, and the overall feeling of the battle.
Can't wait to see what you guys have to say!

I'm also going to nominate Bishop Ladja from V. I have never hated a boss more then him. Not because he was overly tough (which he was the first time i fought him) but he made it so personal that i wanted to see him die. You see everything he puts the hero through, killing his dad and forcing him into slavery, turning you and your wife to stone for several years unable to watch your kids grow, and when you finally find your mother, he pretty much kills her. Killing him off left me with such so much satisfaction. It also takes a bit to outshine the actual last boss by being that much of a dick.

That being said:
#1 Kandar!!! - DW3
#2 Ruin - DQ8
Those are the only two off the top of my head before I scramble to work right now

On to mine
Dhoulamagus- DQ 8
Dhoulmagus didn't really do much to help my distaste for clowns after Kefka. Before the game has even begun, he's destroyed your hero's homeland, cursed the King and Princess, and is now running about causing hell. He gives every one of the characters a genuine reason to be after him for his deeds, unlike other games where it sometimes has a "because destiny says so" feel to it. You can never catch on to what he's doing, but you know there's some reason behind it, and you don't want him to succeed.
So after almost 15 hours of gameplay, you finally catch up to him, and begin what is arguably the hardest boss in the game. The first form has you having to deal with 3 enemies at once, all with the same powerful moves. There's a few tactics here, either take out the center one first, or defeat the clones to reduce damage.
Then, without a chance to heal, he transforms and you get a second phase, which is pretty rare for anything other than the final boss in an RPG. This form makes it almost mandatory to have multiheal to cope with the rather high, often multi member damaging moves he throws, and this time, there's nothing to do but tough it out since it's just one enemy.
Honestly, if the story had been drawn out longer, I could've almost believed Dhoulmagus himself was the final boss. It didn't have the same feeling of "he's the famous threat, but not the biggest threat" like I kinda got from Baramos and Murdaw.

I'm a Brony and damn proud of it.
Stop them from ruining a fan favorite.

A Mafia Boss. The best part is he can turn into a dragon.

Estark from DQIV/V/IX - He's the ruler of the underworld, and is a reckoned with in pretty much all of his appearances.
Corvus from IX - He is so powerful that he actually shattered God and made heaven his own twisted home.
Nokturnus from DQVI - He is the demon god, he even manages to make easy work of Mortamor.

Malroth (DQ 2) - Looks cool, has fitting theme music, is one of few (assuming any other exist) sudden surprize bosses, has cool entrance (screen flashes and shakes, damage appears on floor tiles, I imagined as him smashing up the place to get at the heros inside, this seems shared vision by makers of Battle Road Victory after viewing finisher animation), is under appreciated, is very simple (destroy stuff because that all he does, no interest in causing suffering or enjoying cruelty).
Khalamari (DQ 8) - Never seen this battle, but I love Khalamari. One of few awesome sea monsters in DQ.

Orgodemir - he killed God/Numen or at least defeated him. I was also a little surprised he was God in disguise since usually DQ games throw you a curve ball on who the final villain is (Hargon wasn't the last DQ2 boss, Baramos in DQ3, Estark DQ4). I would have picked God just because it's God and he is really powerful plus his stupid jokes always work , but in a fight, Orgodemir beat him and you said 1 per game.
Malroth - having Healall should put him on the list. Makes him far more difficult. He also takes up half the screen.
Dragonlord - the game is called Dragon Quest or Dragon Warrior. Only time when the final villain is in fact a dragon . Also pretty powerful in the game, pretty much had to heal every other turn.

Now that that's out of the way...
My suggestions for some top 10 DQ Bosses:
Corvus (seriously, the background story of his that ultimately leads up to DQIX's final battle helps you understand just what drives this guy and gives you an idea of just how important your victory in that fight is.)
I fight, I liberate, and I move on to the next battle.
Villains fear my power, heroes admire my strength.
Whenever evil arises, I'll be there to fight it.

1)Ladja - everyone already summed this up pretty well
2)Malroth/Sidoh - He's a god of destruction! One of the toughest end bosses (casts HealAll!). Great boss for a great game.
3)Baramos - Duh! Great mix of physical, breath, and magic attacks. Threatened to eat your corpse if you died, destroyed whole villages, cursed people throughout the land, AND made his castle inaccessible to all but flight.
4)Dhoulmagus - such a pity that he gets replaced by a giant ball of fat.
DQ3 GBC - Solo Hero Lv. 45 - Beat Baramos and finished the "Light World"
Harvest Moon: Animal Parade - Fall, Year 1 - Working on Purple Bell
Legend of Zelda: Oracles

1. Green Dragon. While Dragonlord is the obvious choice, the Green Dragon at mid-game sticks out as a miniboss. It's something different. It's tough. And you know something is there past it.
3. Zoma - Wait, the game's not over?
4. Balzack (original) - You know this guy is bad news in the first go round, but once you're at this point in chapter 5, you know it gets much tougher from here on out.
5. (remake) - Ladja - Gema in the original, but the update made this guy nastier as an individual.
6. Mudo. One of the toughest bosses out of all the DQ games.
7. Tough picks here. Hellcloud's my achilles heel and sticks out on pure combat. Gracos, Deathpal, that boss in Dharma, not to mention Demon Lord and God.
8. Marcello. You just knew you're going to fight him at some point.
