    I want to say that the Resistance series had some pretty obvious weak spots for enemies, but I don't remember. Metroid Prime was another one, but the weak points were only obvious after you did something, or triggered an event.

    I think the most ludicrous weak point is those vehicles that expose the pilot like the Metal Gear Rex. I mean why spend money in a bullet proof cockpit and not just expose the pilot in case of a malfunction.

    "To Whomp King's credit, he (she?)-" Am I the only one who notices a lack of logic in this sentence!?

    In the Gradius entry, you call it a "boos" fight, not a boss fight. And doesn't the Konami code in Gradius power you up, instead of giving you 30 lives? I've been playing PS3 since pretty early, and I'm not sure I've ever even seen Genji in a store, let alone played it. Maybe it only exists in the minds of people writing about games on the internet.

    In the first Gradius, it gets you everything except a speed up, and double/lazer if used while the game is paused, and you can only use it once. In Gradius 3 using the same code destroys your ship. The writer could have been thinking of the similar 2 player co-op game Life Force, in which the code gives you 30 lives.

    FF8's boss on disc one, right before you get the flying garden [effectively, the airship], was blatant enough to brag about how the process worked...not only for the weak spot, but also for how to prevent it from attacking. Probably the best one of the modern era though is Borderlands (entire series). It's almost as if the whole planet's evolution had selected for giant glowy squishy bits ripe to being blown off with a gun. [Terramorphus' tentacles, Krawmerax, Leviathan, Destroyer, Warrior's giant gaping magma-dribbling chest wound], etc.

    Surprisingly there were not heart related weak spots. But well even the Tyrant from RE was immune to be shot "TO ITS EXPOSED HEART". I think the most ludicrous weak point is those vehicles that expose the pilot like the Metal Gear Rex. I mean why spend money in a bullet proof cockpit and not just expose the pilot in case of a malfunction.

    I loved how in the Metroid prime games there were bosses you would use certain visors on to see their weak point.

    Gotta love them boss battles. As far as Zelda goes, Koloktoss is like the only boss who actually takes note that your hitting his weak spot and decides to cage it, except it doesnt work well when your destroying it with his own swords. Also in Title Defense, King Hippo literally tapes a sewer lid over his bandage to cover the weakspot.
