My favorite was Sephiroth in Final Fantasy VII. He took so long, and it was an intense battle. I also enjoyed the final boss of Twilight Princess, who was also Gandanorf, but in several different forms. That was a long, grueling battle too.

On a side note, I think this would belong more in "Outside Interests"...

Hmm... *Strokes invisible goatee* I'm gonna have to go with Dessan as my favorite boss, from Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast. He's a bitch to beat, but can be beaten... It just takes some skill and some cheap shots. :roll:

Oh yeah. Contra kicked butt back in the day. It was ridiculously difficult without the "Capcom Code", but it was always a blast to play.

The Butcher in Diablo. First time I saw him I crapped myself and my dude ran, ran, ran. It was the big fat f**k with a cleaver.

The first *pinky* I met in doom 2. Again scared me silly. Loved it.

The marshmallow man in the C64 game Ghostbusters. I always got squished trying to run through his legs.

Ok...this is going to task my memory from how long ago it's been since I last played some of these games, but:

The head creature from Super C

Andross - Star Fox

now, I never played either version of the original Punch-Out!!, but, of course, Mike Tyson

They never mention the head character, but Pitfall - The Mayan Adventure

Moving on to Computer games:

ok, I give up on this head boss - Alien Syndrome (I know the C64 has a version, I played the Amiga 500 one)

Devlin - Cyberia (finding out you have a mini-nuke implanted in your head...yeah, it'd give you a slight wish to take this guy out)

Prince Thrakhath - Wing Commander III: Heart of the Tiger (WC II: Vengeance of the Kilrathi was good, but the Angel Death scene and the lost cutscene explaining Hobbes' role made this version legendary)

Sephiroth indeed. I also like how most of the Disney villains came out in Kingdom Hearts.

Ultimately though, Rufus Shinra from Final Fantasy VII came out. The whole Shinra villain is well done, and all the Turks within it are good villains with pretty cool personalities (except Elaine). Rufus though is just well put together as the quintessential bad-guy, and he manages to break free from that label in a number of ways while still holding true to it. If that makes sense.
