How far have you gotten in the Final Fantasy VII remake? Whether you have just begun or are already pretty far along, chances are good you've run into some bosses that have given you a run for your money at least a couple of times. Some Final Fantasy 7 Remake bosses are definitely easier than others, but if you need a little guidance to help you move further in the game, then this is the guide for you. 

Right from the start, you have to go up against the Scorpion Sentinel. It may be the first boss, but it's by no means a pushover. Just like in the original, you have to employ the right sets of strategies to win, which means you can't simply hack and slash your way through like you could with all the guards at the beginning of the mission. It's a pivotal moment when you realize exactly what kind of battles you can expect further in the game, and many of them only get tougher. Which FFVII Remake boss was your favorite to do battle with? And which ones had you cursing at Shinra over and over?

Vote up all the hardest FF7 Remake bosses so other gamers can see what to expect next. And fear not: we've included some tips and guides for each boss, as well as their weaknesses and immunities so you can go into each battle prepared, plus what kind of loot you can swipe from specific bosses.
