Despite the buildup of their threats and dread they can go down with less effort you can imagine to put. When have you played a awesome game that was really hard but had insultingly easy bosses that were so pathetic to defeat?
Battlefield 3's final boss, in a way. Compared to Bad Company 1 and 2, it was just flat-out disappointing. At least in BC, you got to go through gameplay to get to the "boss", and defeat him. In BF3, you run through a street, have a brief fight with button-press events, then brick him in the head. Just felt like a let-down to me.
John woo Stranglehold
Mark Echo's getting up
Crash Twinsanity (It was fun but too easy compared to the other bosses)
Ninja Gaiden 3 The whole game sucks, but by god using a reskin of the first boss in another game with hardly any challenge and making it the final boss of this game......
@TheGoldenOne said:Tornado from Superman Returns.That "boss" was just sad.
Great description of it.
Ah... yeah, sadly. Though UC2 at least had a real boss battle (though I found Lieutenant Draza to be harder on Crushing)
- Cesare at Assasin's Creed: Brotherhood (I know, he's just a Human, but give him some weapons that makes stuff go Boom.)
- Xemnas at Kingdom Hearts 2 Final Mix+ (I wiped the floor with him)
- Any boss of any Lego game
- Despair Embodied at Devil May Cry 2
Killbane and Kia in Saints Row the Third. The first fight with him was a fairly simple. In the Killbane Ending, there is not even a fight, you straight up execute him in a quick time event. At least the final confrontation with Cyrus makes up for that. As for the Save Shaundi ending, Kia is defeated the same way as Veteran Child in Saints Row 2, if you throw smell bombs at her repeatedly, you can just blow her way with a fully-leveled shotgun. You can eventually face Killbane again in that ending too and he is a bit more challenging fight than before, but then again, I consider the Kill Killbane Ending canon anyway...
The humanoid Reaper from the end of Mass Effect 2. It wasn't exactly "built up" because it was supposed to be this shocking reveal at the end of the game, but it was very easy to defeat in a game that actually had more challenging combat than its predecessor or successor. Also Saddler from Resident Evil 4, I swear the Verdugos and Iron Maidens were harder to beat than that guy. And Maynard John from Hitman: Blood Money. "Ah, 47, let us duel to the death! Only the best assassin will win!". I literally just fired three shots blind into the distance and he died.

Yeah, it should've resembled the battle in ME3 the Reaper on Rannoch was pretty fantastic and it wasn't even the final battle.
Halo 4. The Didact. Friggin' 343 tried to copy the endings of recent CoD games and made the fight a QTE that was about 7 seconds long.
There was plenty of build up to fighting the Didact from the first time you meet him to the final mission. He is menacing and probably the most superior to the Master Chief in physical strength and technology. I couldn't wait to find out how the Master Chief was going to take him down. Such great potential for a game I wanted to play for such a long time. :(
