17. Fighting The Root Pack - Cuphead

There's a sense of slackjawed wonder to just seeing Cuphead in motion, but the Root Pack boss battle is easily one of the most visually impressive overall.

Combining three brilliant hand-drawn designs into one battle, first you'll battle a supremely stressed out potato, then a shower-crying onion, and finally a mind-frazzling carrot, all brought to life with Studio MDHR's phenomenal animation.

Called the "Rubber Hose" style (in reference to the gangly limbs and sporadic movements often given to these things in motion), Cuphead not only has the most unique graphical style in gaming history, but navigating and defeating these three is delightful to see through.
