10 Biggest Boss Battles In Video Game History - Ranked By Size
5. Adamantoise (Final Fantasy XV)
Approximate Size: 320 metres
The mountain-sized side-quest which initially terrified Final
Fantasy fans with the rumours of a 72-hour boss fight is a slightly
controversial entry for two reasons.
Firstly, the actual size of the
mega-tortoise isn't officially listed anywhere (that I could find, at
least), making the 320m length something of a guess based on how it
compares to both Noctis, and the other entries in this list.
Secondly, its hard to tell which is bigger: Adamantoise, or
Leviathan. Both beasts are labelled as a category 5 size in the
official FF XV wiki, though we get no more detail. It might well be
that Admantoise is bigger in terms of weight, while Leviathan is
Ultimately, Adamantoise beat Leviathan to the list not only for
its superior HP and strength, but because it is, quite literally, a
mountain. Both boss fights are immense and make our hero feel
insignificant in scale in equal measure, but while the Leviathan
battle offers some of the most epic music in FF XV, there are few
reveals more imposing than when Adamantoise first stretches out his
neck from beneath the enormous rock on its back.
Writer, aspiring author, and I won't stop travelling until I've seen it all. Whilst I might take a break now and then to rant about politics or muse over philosophy, I'm not afraid to roll up my sleeves, buckle down, and spend some solid hours gaming!
