    This list needs Evrae Altana from Final Fantasy X. It's a boss you've already killed before (in a fairly grueling fight, for most), and now it's an undead monstrosity that you can only fight using the three party members who can swim. Oh wait, did I say "undead"? Use two Phoenix Downs on it and it's toast. Pretty much any RPG zombie boss (that can be hurt by curative items/abilites) is a good example, but Evrae is by far the most famous.

    Soulcage from ff9 is another good example. Although in that battle they don't actually tell you that it's a zombie.

    The Warrior from Borderlands 2. Seriously, there's such a buildup to it being an all-powerful Eridian beast, and then......shoot the glowing massive weak spot until death -_-

    Diablo from Diablo 3

    Don't know what metroid it is from, but i remember a giant metroid, inside a ship, which you could kill with one shot of the x-ray gun. I accidentally had the x-ray equipped, prepared for a tough battle and then just "oh wow" and i skipped along

    I think that in fable lost chapter is really easy to kill first soul of Jack of Blades :)

    For Dark Souls II, I say either the Covetous Demon, or the Demon of Song, both are pretty scary looking, but very easy to beat. The last time I fought the Demon of Song, he didn't even hit me once.

    those little dudes are pain in FF VIII where you have to kill 20 of them to make Tonberry King appear

    Whoops? One comment too high, haha.
  • melekeddine - July 10, 2014 12:30 p.m.

    WTF?? I wasn't supposed to reply to you ! Anyway i agree that the Demon of song is easy to beat but the way to reach it is a pain!
  • Shayz - July 9, 2014 1:41 a.m.

    Has GamesRadar already made an article about bosses/enemies that are actually much more hard to defeat than you think they would be. Like the Tonberry from FF games. Little green dude with a dagger and a of the hardest to defeat enemies in the game.

    The Sword from Super Mario RPG The thing that LOOKS like the ultimate boss... Oh Geno's third special does 9999 to it....nice
  • evanicafan - July 8, 2014 6:32 p.m.

    What about Leader from the Incredible Hulk for SNES/Megadrive? I mean, he's the last boss, but it only takes a single uppercut to beat the brain out of him.
  • TurkeyOnRye - July 8, 2014 10:54 a.m.

    You didn't mention the fact that Electrocutioner goes out like a bitch too. Joker kicks him out of a window for being too busy playing games on his phone. Batman's response? "Ooooh, gloves!"

    Personally, the various forms of Ridley in the Metroid series have been EXTREMELY easy for me... It takes me no longer than 30 seconds whenever I run into him.
  • cgriff63 - September 6, 2014 1:42 p.m.

    First Meta Ridley battle in Prime 3. Super menacing. Ridiculously easy
  • SnakeinmyBoot - July 8, 2014 4:08 a.m.

    Ah Tentalus. I was expecting to fight the Kraken while it tore the ship a part, maybe Jack Sparrow would be there to give me a hand (or toss me a jar of dirt). Instead, I got to fight a 5-year-old's crayon drawing of Davy Jones' and Medusa's love child, which was only hard when the motion controls decided to act up. Why didn't you mention how the Metroid Hatchers could be skipped until the endgame (even the first one can through minor glitches/sequence breaking). Then you could come back with the x-ray visor and Nova Beam and one-shot them. Very relaxing after having to aim at those feet then fighting the nun-chuck's accelerometer to finish off a limb. "God, I love therapy!" I thought the Golem Overlord ran away if you didn't put it out of its misery fast enough, taking its sweet EXP with it.
  • Griffin_Vacheron - July 8, 2014 8:45 p.m.

    I've heard that Golem can run away! But I haven't experienced it myself. Always just pummel him until he goes down. As for the Hatchers, that's awesome -- I wish I had known that as a young'un. Even though Tentalus is pretty weak, I did enjoy his visual design. He's awesome looking IMO. Like, if you think about how scary that would be in real life - damn. For some reason the moment when he roars and his tentacles go all cray (like in the GIF just gives me the chills). It's pretty immersive, just not challenging in the least (which of course takes away from that)
  • mafyooz - July 8, 2014 12:58 a.m.

    The Tower Knight in Demon's Souls fits this bill for me. I thought I was gong to get stomped into goo when I first saw it but it's pretty easy to defeat in melee combat. And if you take a ranged/magic approach you have to be really sloppy not to do it without so much as a scratch.
