If there’s one thing we’ve learned about video games through the decades, it’s that all of them are eventually beaten. It may take some time but ultimately, the player is supposed to win (most of the time, at least). While some bosses lay down and die, others go out in a blaze of glory. Then there are others that fall in violently epic ways because a simple death is too good for them. Let’s take a look at 10 of the most epic video game boss deaths in history.

Metal Gear RAY – Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance

Armstrong’s death is constantly brought up as one of the more epic boss deaths in video games. Don’t get us wrong – it’s a great choice – but there’s also the massacre of Metal Gear RAY at the start of the game. Essentially, Raiden goes one-on-one against it, systematically taking it apart. As the music builds and he dodges lasers and gunfire.

He then proceeds to toss it into the sky before dicing it apart and splitting it right down the centre before it explodes all around him. If any sequence could leave such a huge first impression, it’s this one.
