In terms of both story and gameplay, the final boss is an adversary that is highly-anticipated. Commonly the main villain, their threat has been seen throughout the course of the game, whether it’s in a constantly-falling moon or the onset of twilight. As a major event that has been built up over a considerable amount of time, the final bosses of Zelda games are not without their challenges.
It can be especially frustrating to be so close to finishing a game and not be able to signify it by defeating the final boss. For me, it was Ganon in A Link to the Past, as I died a lot before figuring out patterns and timing. Even then, there were some pixel-perfect moments I’d rather not have to do again. But, I also remember the long process of finishing Twilight Princess and the four phases of a Ganondorf that was determined to win no matter what. But, perhaps other fights stuck out to you, like Majora in Majora’s Mask or Ganon in Ocarina of Time.
