I was mentioning Rapid Hero to a friend a bit ago, and this made me remember the ridiculousness of the mech-suit guy you keep fighting in it.

Dude whistles for backup, goes super saiyan, and gets revealed as a giant ninja that fights you in space.

So I thought, surely there must be some other bosses or even regular enemies that were just ridiculous to face.

Perhaps you can name some? Aside from the aforementioned Rapid Hero, I always found the original Hibachi downright ridiculous. It's the wall of engrish that ruins the whole thing, or rather improves it by making it incredibly amusing.

Yup, first thing that came to mind. I think this one takes the cake.

I remember laughing my back off the first time I encountered this gangly ninny in deathsmiles 2 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qyc38MnFhYQ&t=11m4s

"Mehhhhhhhh!"

I'm reminded of that boss in Espgaluda 2 who has a screen of him just laughing at you, only to pull up more screens of him laughing at you the more you damage him

I remember an entire forum collectively announcing the death of Cave.

One of the midbosses in Strikers 1945 stage 7.
An alien child hip-dancing, followed by an old dude in trench coat shooting patterns when he's flashing at you.

No mention of Catspider from Guwange? I always thought that was pretty goofy.

Everyone knew that the first on the list would be that Cho Aniki boss, right?

Anyway, I like that Santa Claus from Boogie Wings. Personality crisis version.
He keeps turning evil and trying to shoot you, or being his nicer self and giving you presents.

Kiwami Shooting the best.

Dimahoo's final boss makes everyone laugh the first time they fight it.

Level 5 boss from Gynoug. Kind of a precursor to the Choaniki games.

I don't know any shit funnier than a good number of the Bakuretsu Breaker bosses.

Yes, it is indeed a digitized attack helicopter in space.

Explosive breaker is A+ quality material. I can't believe I forgot about this thing.

Rather obscure one, but the final boss of Sol-Feace/Deace emerges from a wall and starts harmlessly flailing its limb-thingies as you gun it down. It is a completely anticlimactic ending and looks wacky as all hell.

Thanks for reminding me about him! He's really funny indeed. :mrgreen:
From CAVE's output, I am also fond of Pink Sweets' final boss endlessly shouting "BOMBA!" and "HADOOOO-GUN!" like a madman.

I am partial to the freaky salaryman with devil wings, though the stage 4 boss' underwear-clad last form gives it a run for its money. :lol:

Yes! Especially because Deathsmiles is otherwise grim and gothic, and totally thematically consistent -
then, out of the fucking blue, there's a giant cow.

Yay for reviving a thread that's been dead for years, but how did no one mention Toilet Kids for PCE? The bosses are all literally some variation of giant asses, penises, or toilets that fire poo/pee bullets at you. They really did a number on this one

It has it's issues, but it's a somewhat fun game on it's own, except a few of the bosses requiring you to get in their face to hit certain areas with your ground bombs.
