9. Top Man – Mega Man 3

Granted, it won’t be a massive surprise to many Mega Man fans to see any of the games appearing in this list, because they’ve always had boss fights that are, for better and for worse, a little on the weird side. This reaches an almost unbearable apex for even hardcore fans of the series when facing off against the ludcriously-monikered Top Man, who spends most of the level spinning around a lot and firing objects at you. Strangely for a Mega Man game, he doesn’t appear to have an obvious weakness you have to seek out for victory, also making him one of the easiest bosses in the entire history of the series; in fact, it’s so easy you’ll almost be thinking the game is tricking you, setting you up for a fall when Top Man suddenly kills you or something.

But alas, that’s not the case; he’s just a ridiculously easy, oddly simplistic boss, and you get rewarded with one of the oddest weapons in gaming history; the Top Spin (which is activated by jumping and spinning around).
