Prime series Bosses

This thread is for anything you want to say about any of the bosses in the Prime series.

For starters, I think my favorite bosses were in the original Prime. Echoes had some bosses who were great in terms of difficulty, but I thought that overall they lacked design and creativity.

Corruption definitely had the worst bosses, though. They were too easy and not very inspired at all.

I think I'd pretty much have to agree with this summary.

The first MP's bosses felt classic in a way, and even reminded me a bit of TLoZ: OoT's boss battles.

Emperor Ing was a b*tch to beat, but I couldn't help but feel disappointed that this large blob-ish thing was the final boss. (I don't count Dark Samus, since it survives)

Corruption's bounty hunters were the stupidest, most generic characters I've ever seen.
Because of them, I will never play MP: Hunters.

The problem with MP3's bounty hunters is that they didn't have much backstory. In fact, I think Ghor was the only one with any real backstory at all, and it only served to make you feel terrible about what happens to him. Hunters has much better bounty hunters. You have an ex-Space Pirate general who was nearly killed and now resides in a body that is mostly machine (like Ghor), a mysterious human-like creature who wears stolen Federation armor, uses stolen Federation weapons, and rides a stolen Federation ship, someone looking for ideas as to what happened to his race (he is the last of his kind), someone created in a lab, which he then destroyed (he is the first and only of his kind), someone so obsessed with justice that we will destroy anything that stands in his way (including you), and someone sent to find new planets for his race to conquer.

There's plenty of other reasons to avoid Hunters, as you fight the same three bossess multiple times and the controls are terrible, but the new bounty hunters were great and their weapons were truly unique. Check out the hunters here.

I could see that for some of them, but to each his own. Even though I think some of the new hunters are awesome, they still don't save hunters from being a mediocre game.

Anyways, who wishes Kraid was in Prime, as was originally planned?

Would have been nice.

Also in Prime 3 when you fight the Aurora Unit, that boss looked so BA, then it just sucked and was probably one of the easiest bosses in the game. Come on its the predecessor to Mother Brain 2.0.

The end bosses to Prime 3 were terrible. There was so much build up to get to them, but the final planet was just a huge disappointment and super linear, and then you fight two bosses in a row that require very little strategy. Dark Samus should have offered up more of a challenge, especially because she's Metroid Prime and you've basically been fighting her for three games.

I would have liked Kraid in Prime, but did anyone see the model they planned to use? It looks terrible, and Kraid has some weird helmet thing on his head. I'd like Kraid, but not as he looked. Maybe that's why they left him out.

Kraid for Other M!

No doubt Kraid will be in the Other M. I've been thinking about that game, what if its just a game of flashbacks?

It won't be. Search the thread for my link to the interview; the main dude says it's supposed to tell the story of what happens between Metroid 3 and 4. But if it was just a rehashing of, say, Super Metroid in 3D, that would be perfectly fine with me. Either way, there looks to be a lot of flashbacks in the game. Unless we fight Mother Brain as she blasts a giant infant Metroid which is shielding us before we blow her away with a huge super-powered blast again.
