By their very nature, bosses are meant to be intimidating foes that test every skill you’ve picked up as you’ve played a game. Some, however, turn out to be much more unsettling than you’d expect. Every so often, you’ll come across a boss in a game that isn’t exactly a horror experience, but will still make you shudder in your skin. This is a feature dedicated to fifteen such bosses.
NYX (PERSONA 3)
Persona 3’s final boss is a force to be reckoned with for several reasons. Not only does it look absolutely terrifying, it’s also the mother of all boss fights, with Nyx taking numerous forms throughout what might be one of the longest boss fights you’ll ever experience. Persona games have always dealt with darker themes, of course, but very rarely has it done so on the same level as it did with Nyx.
