during the latest meeting favorite boss was deemed not specific enough and it was decided to change it to boss battle to make things more specific

feel free to suggest nominees, but it has to be a specific boss battle, and not a character in general

Favorite Boss Nominees: Kamek, Rawk Hawk, Jr. Troopa, Bowser Jr., Midbus, Boom Boom, Macho Grubba, Koopa Bros., King Kaliente, Francis, Goomboss, Motley Bossblob

well you could say you fight him twice cause when youre running around the mansion castle and he runs up to you all you can do is flee but then you fight his heart in the windmill
so idk if that counts or not

you fight him twice if you count the heart and body as separate battles, but tbh they were only like 5 minutes apart and one was significantly more difficult than the other. other than that you dont fight him again (and no i don't think the unwinnable one counts)

how do people feel about the shrooboid brat, tb or someone brought him up and now that i'm thinking about the fight more i thought it was pretty cool

I'm gonna throw in Phantamanta and Super Dimentio. Both are really intimidating bosses size-wise, the scenery/locations are great, and the music (especially for Super Dimentio) are pretty great, imo.

And I agree with Tubba Blubba and Shrooboid Brat. i am so happy you did not say elder shrooboid or i would have murdered you
 

BEEEEEAAARRRS

how about a rousing game of pool
TIME TO LOOK THROUGH ALL MY GAMES

The big boo in smw that you had to kill with throw blocks

I dunno I liked the Popple fights with Bowser, but there was two so I'd say the one in the basement because of their bro move

Rawk Hawk cause hell yea youre in a stadium n everyones cheering n shit

final Bowser battle in sm64, because you're in limbo on a giant star made of like, rotten obsidian and there's epic organs playing

Smorgs cause hell yea youre on top of a moving train n shit

Shrooboid brat ditto rawk hawk

Elder Shrooboid was cool too for some reason. I dunno, like the fight wasn't AMAZING WOW, but the atmosphere leading into it was great. I always thought star shrine was a pretty shady place, and then suddenly two people die right in front of you after he bursts out of a damn wall and its like "woah" "shit"

Phantamanta in sms was super fun just because you got to hunt down all the little ones at the end, and you could decide how much of a panic you wanted to make the fight

Mecha Bowser on the roller coaster was hella (the balloons later on in the roller coaster kinda sucked but whatever)

also Belcha because he was pretty scary to a five year old me


I might think of more later but I doubt many of my suggestions will make it far lol

I remember the atmosphere and how I felt in the fight rather than fighting the boss more often than not

Hm, I'll give my opinion later but before I do can I assume that dk/wario bosses count as well?

Kamek in Mario & Luigi: Dream Team and Super Princess Peach. He's so vital in so many boss battles in so many games but when will he get his due credit :'(

Ok, super late, but here is my opinion for Best Boss Battle. This is all from memory so I'm likely missing stuff. I've bolded them for convenience.

-I'm going to third Packy and Toadbert with the nomination of Phantamanta and second Toadbert's suggestion of Final Bowser SM64.

-Kaptain K. Rool from dkc2

-Final Bowser (SMG)

-Grodus or Magnus Von Grapple 2.0 from pm:ttyd

-Brobot + Brobot L-Type from SPM

-I'll second Tubba Blubba from Paper Mario

-Elder Princess Shroob from PiT

-Antasma from dream team

-Tower of Yikk from BIS

-King Boo from Luigi's Mansion

-If we want a boss from recent games on there, I won't be opposed to Hisstocrat from sm3dw or Bashmaster from dkctf.

-Golden diva from WL4

-Poobah the Pharaoh from wmod

-Zero Two from Kirby 64

If anything else pops into my head, I'll post it here.

While I don't know about bosses from all of the games, I do know that Hisstocrat and Motley Bossblob are both fought three times in SM3DW, with varying difficulty.

A male Hisstocrat is first fought in World 3-B. Then a female appears in Bowser-B that spits fire. Lastly they both appear simultaneously in Flower-12.

Motley Bossblob is first fought in World 6-C. Then he appears again in Bowser-A and Flower-12, emitting shock-waves when he jumps, and in the latter being twice as big in Blob form.

Put up a poll to fill the award with any last minute nominees. Feel free to argue for or against any option.

Is Grodus really a good boss fight? I remember it being super annoying, what with him constantly hiding behind a shield that needs to be destroyed every turn.

I guess it really depends. I nominated Grodus mostly based on his battle music and the fact that you're fighting the (supposed) main villain, although I can completely understand why one would dislike that fight because it could get really bothersome with the shield minions.

Edit:Also, i'm not seeing zero two the final bowser from mario galaxy on the poll even though it got one nomination. Was it mistaken for the Bowser in the Sky perchance?

i think option 18 is too graphic, wasnt really a favourite by anyone. personally i say we should rethink the situation because many people found this boss to not only be menacing, but the amount of exposure that this had on the public was pretty devastating because i heard a lot of people got angry about it, and there was even a news article about it but i can't dig that up right now. im just saying this will probably be the most least picked option and i dont think thats what we're really going for. maybe some of the other options like option 7 would be great. i feel like removing option 18 would be wise and the best thing to do right now as this probably wont get as many votes (i think someone accidentally voted for it like 7 times) and having it on the award could deter the community, or maybe even future ceremonies.
