Top Ten Longest Boss Battles In Recent History

The boss battle has been a staple of gaming since its inception. Whether it be as far back as the dragons in Adventure, or the huge set-piece battles in a modern FPS, boss battles are often the spectacle that can make or break a game. We’re going to be looking a quantity rather than quality though, in an attempt to bring you a list of the ten longest boss battles in recent memory. This list may contain mild spoilers.

    “I wanted to avoid using MMORPGs for this list.” No you didn’t, not with 3 FF bosses before the article’s even done.

    Pandemonium Warden* AV was never defeated pre-level cap increase without using an exploit. PW was the reason scathing articles hit SE in the face, criticizing their “Do not forget your friends, family or work” disclaimer that players had to agree to every time they logged in. After the SE-bashing commenced, bosses were re-written.

    PW was now able to be defeated. AV, still not so much, but you had a 30% chance of locking one of his 2 hour abilities by using a third party tool to use yours simultaneously, which locked his insta-wipe abilities (Meteor, Chainspell + Comet, Drake + Mijin/Astral), but still didn’t address his crazy MAB in bracelet mode. So, to my knowledge he was only ever defeated through an exploit or KC zerg pre level cap increase, or a SMN zerg post level cap increase, at least while his drops were still relevant.
