The last decade or two of gaming has seen its share of tough boss fights, for sure. However, the 1990s presented some of the toughest challenges in gaming yet and are still infamous to this day. Let’s take a look at 13 of the toughest bosses during that era.
Akuma – Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo
Did you think that M. Bison from Street Fighter 2, one of the toughest bosses in any game ever up till that point, was a wuss? Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo’s Akuma is the fight for you. Accessible only by reaching the last stage quickly without any continues in Arcade Mode, Akuma will appear and waylay Bison, then replace him as the final boss. In terms of abilities, he possesses the Zankuu Hadoken (which fires two Hadoken in mid-air), a teleport for quickly closing the distance, and very quick combos that take off chunks of health. Hilariously enough, his playable version isn’t as powerful but was still considered broken enough to warrant banning from tournaments.
