You Are Reading :10 Craziest Boss Fights In Capcom Games Ranked
As long as the company’s been in business, Capcom has never shied away from the bizarre and wacky. While their games have varied in terms of quality, no one can deny if one is looking for an uber-serious experience in a Capcom game, they’re kinda looking in the wrong place.
Look no further than the boss fights in the company’s games. Whether the game is acclaimed or otherwise, there tends to be at least one really bizarre boss fight that awaits gamers. There are a lot of good examples, but here is a good sampling of how oddball they get.
10 The Mad Midget Five (God Hand)
God Hand is not a conventional brawler to say the least. On one hand, you have a staggering plot that deals with a man with the hand of God battling a demonic society, and on the other hand, you have evil little people dressed as The Power Rangers.
Inspired by Super Sentai, The Mad Midget Five (that is sadly what they’re called) are among the many weird bosses protagonist Gabe encounters, but The Five take the oddball tone of God Hand to a level that is outright baffling. God Hand itself is fairly underrated, but The Five are a good example of the humor that lies within the game.
9 Wyzen (Asura’s Wrath)
If there ever was a game that went from zero to one-hundred at the first boss fight, it would be Asura’s Wrath. A game with a plot that’s dirt-simple to digest but nearly impossible to explain, Asura’s Wrath is basically Kill Bill if it were a bit more anime, with a protagonist so angry he makes Kratos seem calm and composed.
Wyzen, the first of many deities that Asura battles in the game, starts off pretty big, then grows to the point where he could wipe out whole countries with just the tip of his finger. Sounds intimidating? It is, however Asura is so overpowered that he murders a Galactus-sized god by punching it until it explodes. In terms of establishing a tone, this game gets an S-rank!
8 Bob Barbas (DMC)
Devil May Cry has a lot of bizarre boss fights to its name. From the possessed helicopter in Devil May Cry 2 to Devil May Cry 4’s Savior, the franchise has many boss fights with their tongues planted firmly in their cheeks. Yet above all these, the boss fight against Bob Barbas in the reviled reboot DMC takes the cake for insanity.
Essentially a demonic version of Bill O’Reilly, Bob Barbas turns out to be glitchy, trash-talking demon who gives a more My Chemical Romance-tinged Dante a good workout. The fight is the closest DMC gets to the Devil May Cry spirit and is the best part of a pretty dull reboot.
7 Dr. Wily (Mega Man 7)
What puts Mega Man 7’s Wily boss fight above the rest in terms of craziness isn’t the fight himself, but more how it ends. For the first five entries, Mega Man fans had seen the same ending where Mega Man stops Wily’s evil scheme, only for Wily to escape, with the exception of Mega Man 6 where Wily was arrested.
Mega Man 7’s Wily fight starts this way, but finally ends with Mega Man aiming his arm-cannon at the doctor’s head with every intention to put an end to Wily’s life. While circumstances lead to this not happening, the fact that Mega Man came close to finally killing Wily makes this fight insane.
6 Q-Bee (Darkstalkers)
Not a boss per se, but Q-Bee from Darkstalkers is an oddity among the rest of the cast. Whereas most of the fighters of Darkstalkers are classic horror archetypes, Q-Bee is a bee person, which isn’t something you think of when you imagine things that go bump in the night.
Q-Bee’s background is that she is the leader of The Soul Bees, which sounds like a band, but is actually a race of humanoid bees that are part of the Darkstalkers universe. With a love for devouring souls that conflicts with her cute design, Q-Bee is one of the few Darkstalkers characters that will make people go “what?”
5 Ultron-Omega (Marvel Vs. Capcom: Infinite)
Marvel Vs. Capcom: Infinite was a step in the wrong direction for the Marvel Vs. Capcom series, with merging Ultron and Sigma being among the many head-scratching choices for the story. Though the whole story is ridiculous, Ultron-Omega takes the cake.
At the end of the story campaign, Ultron-Sigma gets an upgrade becoming Ultron-Omega, which is basically Sigma’s head with Ultron growing out of it. This single boss fight was the definitive moment where Marvel Vs. Capcom jumped the shark.
4 Ramon Salazar (Resident Evil 4)
Resident Evil is a shoo-in franchise for conversations about weird, cheesy moments from Capcom games. While many of the franchise’s boss fights come to mind, they all cower beneath the sheer lunacy of Ramon Salazar’s boss fight from Resident Evil 4.
A Napoleon-esque convert to Los Ilumenados who merges with the queen Plagas, Leon Kennedy’s battle with Salazar takes the madcap, B-movie tone of RE4 and dials it up to eleven. To top it all off, Leon uses a rocket launcher to finish Salazar off.
3 Gran Bruce (Viewtiful Joe)
The moment a game console reads the disk for Viewtiful Joe, it becomes apparent that the game doesn’t take itself very seriously. While all of the bosses of Viewtiful Joe are part of an eccentric bunch, Gran Bruce is top-tier in terms of strangeness.
A shark-man hybrid with a voice that sounds like Bender from Futurama doing a pirate accent, Gran Bruce is forgetful, abnormal, and totally in line with Viewtiful Joe’s style. If one were to line up every Capcom villain, Gran Bruce would be among the villains that would prompt a double-take.
2 Gill (Street Fighter III)
Standing next to the likes of Sagat, M.Bison, and Seth, Gill is the Street Fighter final boss that sticks out like a sore thumb. Serving as the main antagonist of Street Fighter III: Third Strike, Gill is a cult leader with overwhelming ambitions for a utopian society.
Gill’s name may not match his intimidating visual, but don’t be fooled by his somewhat regular name. Gill is one of the most frustrating, difficult boss fights in the history of Street Fighter boss fights, giving the most skilled players a real challenge.
1 Lord Burroughs (Clock Tower 3)
Clock Tower used to be gaming’s equivalent of slasher films like Friday The 13th and Halloween. However, when the series’ developer/publisher Human Entertainment died off after Clock Tower II: Ghost Head failed, Capcom picked up the franchise, hiring Battle Royale director Kinji Fukasaku to direct Clock Tower 3.
The result was one of the most bizarre horror games on record, with the final boss fight with Lord Burroughs feeling like something out of a fever dream. With the plot going full Sailor Moon by this point, protagonist Alyssa Hamilton uses her mother’s Rooder powers to save the day.
