Whats your fav boss fight (spoilers)?

#1 Posted by chickdigger802 (502 posts) -

For some reason I really enjoyed that fight in the hotel. Probably the only boss that ever wiped my team out ={
 
Stupid lucky move that charmed the entire party =(

I haven't had any problems with the Full Moon bosses. Maybe I just over level. It's always the sub bosses in tartarus that give me any trouble. Favorite was the full moon boss that is fought in the underground area. Splitting was a pain at first but it wasn't actually too difficult.

Nyx of course. Probably one of the most interesting boss fights I've ever encountered in a game. Awesome music too. I'm trying to beat Theodore but that's pretty impossible so far.

I'm pretty partial to the love hotel boss fight myself -- especially in the FeMC route if you take Akihiko.
 
And also, Nyx.  Even though I've always been overleveled for the Nyx fight and it's always a bit easy, I've always thought it was interesting.

The Chidori boss fight, just because it was so hilariously easy no matter what mode you play on.

Nyx.  For just Full Moons, Fortune and the one you fight with it.

My favorite one is the Roulette Wheel. It was fun to use that thing for an easy fight.

While I didn't think it was easy, i liked the look of it. Fav boss, but I've not reached nyx yet, so I'm sure once that happens Nyx will steal the show.

Nyx, of course, is my favourite boss.
The Arcana is the means by which all is revealed... etc etc. Really, I thought Nyx was a great final boss, even if it wasn't too challenging. Maybe I was overleveled? It did get difficult near the end, however, Night Queen made things pretty ugly...
Also, the music was Goddamn amazing. Holy shit do I love the music that was playing.

Nyx, nothing more satisfying than dealing the last hit, sitting back and watching the awesome scenes that follow.
 
The hotel was tough too. And the one with the tank.

I totally just did the Hotel one on Rush mode. I only stopped once to to take charm off of Yukari, the whole fight took about a minute XD

I think I just rushed into the second fight without taking time to fully heal since I didn't expect it :P
It charmed half of my party and then took me out before I even got a chance to strike D:

Nyx for me. One of the better bosses of encountered.

Owch.
 
I'm kinda a wary player, I try and over level myself (i was near 30 when I went in) and then I just rushed it once I saw how much damage everyone can do with the boss having no reflect or anything I just went to it. I think it helps in P3P with having those people you have to save it gets you back int he dungen nice and frequent to make sure your lvled up enough.
 
Is that exclusive to p3p tho? I haven't played FES yet...

Yup, that's not in FES. I haven't played P3P, so some of the bosses probably differ in difficulty as well.
 
I get what you're saying about overleveling though. I spent about 5 or more hours grinding before the final boss fight. If only I had known about the monad block, I could've have done all that grinding in minutes, but I guess that's not fun. :(

I had more trouble out of that boss in easy more of P3, i'm on normal on P3P and the battles very (seem a little harder) so i'm leveling until it becomes to hard to do so or until the shadows fear me too much to attack. (always a good sign)
 
Oh man, I just found out about Monad about 3 days ago. The door randomly appeared and i kept daring myself to go in thinking it was a hidden boss or something. (well it kinda is a hidden boss XP) I've got everyone at level 89+ and myself 95 so monad has been a DEFINITE help in getting them that far that fast. I've never actually beaten P3, i got to the last month and became a coward and put it down XD
 
So I'm actually finishing my first play-through and i'm on my first play-through in P3P as well as the female. I'm about 13 days from the end int he consol version and I'm last minute leveling. What level were you when you beat the game?

I was level 73 I think. I was trying to fuse Metatron for the last battle thinking I had to be LVL 74 to fuse it, then when I checked it was actually level 77, so I just said screw it and went on the final fight.  I think a lot of that battle has to do with luck, and I was fortunate enough to only have to try it twice. 
 
You should have no problem at all in your current level.

I heard luck might be a factor in the fight, i've been scared to go in and finally face Nyx XD I guess it's just the finality of it all, it means the game ends, which makes me sad. But there is always FES with new game +
#19 Posted by SpiralStairs (1007 posts) -
@Catolf:  Oh man, I know how you feel. I was sad weeks before I even got to that fight because I knew the game would have to end at some point.
 
But it's totally worth it in the end, because the game's ending is excellent, and probably the most memorable part of the whole game. I beat the game like at 2 in the morning and I couldn't go to sleep because I just kept thinking about it for the rest of the night,.
#20 Posted by Catolf (2653 posts) -
@SpiralStairs:  I've been dreading getting to the end. I've managed to keep myself mostly spoiler free on what all goes down so I can live in the moment. I do know about what happens to Minato (hard to avoid that one, i tried really hard) but I refused to look it up on youtube because I wanted to do that moment myself.
#21 Posted by SpiralStairs (1007 posts) -
@Catolf:  To be honest, that's not really much of a spoiler. The original intro pretty much hints at it several times. I knew about it way before I got to that point.

I didn't think it would happen, so I was unbelieving until I heard that it did, I was sad.
#23 Posted by SpiralStairs (1007 posts) -
@Catolf: That sucks :(
 
But still, there's much more to the ending that just what happens to the MC.

which is why i'm not watching it on youtube, imma do it soon.. hopefully.
#25 Posted by TayIor (25 posts) -
@Catolf:  I had that spoiled for me too, and at first I was disappointed, but like Spiral says, there's much more to it. It's a great way to end the game, I personally really loved it, a lot. I even used to replay the last few days just to see the ending again. I've been meaning to play through the game again, this time as the Male MC considering it's the canon route, but that was a solid 70 hours or so I put into the game. 77, iirc. I got P3P the day it came out and beat it in two weeks, God damn do I love that game.
#26 Posted by Catolf (2653 posts) -
@TayIor:  You beat it faster than me XD I've got about 130 hours in this game and 4 days left. I'm slow XD
 
But I've been dreading and fighting my excitement knowing that fight is close at hand, and if it's as good as you say I might be doing that fight more than once!
