The Easiest Boss Battles in Video Game History

Easy video game bosses can either make a game fun or ruin it altogether. Boss battles in video games are meant to be a challenge, to make the player think a little, but if a boss is too easy it could mean that the player will just write off the game. 

This list compiles video of some of the easiest boss battles in video game history. Just because the boss battles listed here are easy, doesn't mean that they are bad. Most of the time, easy boss battles happen near the beginning of the game and serve as a warm up for the player, like "Flash Man" from Mega Man 2 or "Gohma" from Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. Others happen to be the final boss battle and it turns out to be so easy as either a joke (Like in "Portal") or if you have maxed out your character to the extreme ("Final Fantasy VII)

No matter where these boss battles take place, there is no way that they can't be considered some of the easiest boss battle in video game history.
