    Default Video Game bosses as D&D characters

    EDIT: If there's a recurring boss in a game series (i.e. Bowser), please specify which game in the series.

    If you are going to list more than one boss, please list the bosses in the format:
    • [Boss name] ([Game])

    Taking a new line for each boss.

    If you complete a boss as a character, please post its full character sheet. Assume you have exactly as much money as you need for the purpose of acquiring the items.

    Some bosses I'd like to see:

    -Lavos (Chrono Trigger)

    -Bowser (Mario)

    -Kefka (Final Fantasy VI)

    In a few days, I may create some of these myself.

    Also, this may be best suited in the homebrew forum.
    Have you had enough of unreasonably high LA's and unplayable monsters in 3.5? Then check out the LA-assignment thread! Don't hesitate to give feedback!

    Ok...Hm. Video Game bosses I'd like to see would be...hmm.

    >Kuja from Final Fantasy 9
    >Either Yami, Orochi, or Ninetails from Okami
    >Emperor Griffin from Dark Cloud 2 (Dark Chronicle)

    If you want any help with these I'd consider assisting.

    EDIT:

    Also, this may be best suited in the homebrew forum.
    Only if he intends to create stuff specifically for these builds. If he intends to build using already-existing materials, then this may be the best place for it in the same way that the Iron Chef, Zinc Saucier, and Junkyard Wars competitions are explicitly creating new builds from currently existing materials.

    You could even say that these "build concepts" are being Optimized here.

    All help is welcome, and no, I'm not creating anything. I'm using already existing materials.

    The main thing I'll need help with is Gohma Vlitra, due to the sheer fact that it's basically a planet.

    Ganondorf should be easy depending on which game he's from. The version from Ocarina of Time, for example, would likely be a desert half-orc (based on body design and coloring) with primarily sorcerer or maybe even wu-jen levels.

    The game each character is from is listed next to them, the version I'm going for is the version from Twilight Princess.

    Same as above, but now a martial class who can turn into a boar.

    PsyWar maybe? He did possess Zelda.

    Atropos is actually from the Elder Evils book. A planetoid destruction entity.

    Hmm. As far as Ganondorf goes, if it's TP we're going for, less sorcerer. That version of him would be probably PsyWar. Maybe Bear Warrior, with Bear refluffed to be more boarlike.

    Or, as another thought, perhaps a Shapeshifter Druid whose Freaking Awesome Form is that of a gigantic boar. I could see that coming out of a desert half-orc, and from an optimization standpoint would be slightly less MAD.

    When I get to my books later, if I'm not busy with something else, I'll start building Ganondorf. I'm most familiar with him and I think my previous posts will probably give me the build needed. I might even have gotten some inspiration for a bit of template stacking from his previous incarnations.

    Could you list them in the format I did in the original post? It makes it easier for me to add them, and I can't think of the entirety of Organization XIII off by heart, nor do I remember in what games each one is an enemy. Roxas is a protagonist, so he doesn't qualify as a boss.

    Could you please specify a game for Bowser? His powers vary depending on what game he's in.

    Also, I'm incapable of doing either of the other two, but they have been added to the list in the hope that someone else can.

    Yes, but given how the hero takes them all down hard, I don't think their omnipotence is all it's cracked up to be (I'm not even sure which character you're referring to, really; plus you already had Lavos on your list... )

    Noncombatant and Poor Reflexes

    Invocations:
    Least - Darkness, Devil's Sight, Eldritch Spear, Entropic Warding, Miasmic Cloud
    Lesser - Fell Flight, Voracious Dispelling
    Greater - Repelling Blast, Wall of Perilous Flame, Warlock's Call
    Dark - Dark Forsight, Eldritch Doom

    Emulating Gannondorf:
    Stopping farie-boys from z-targetting you - Miasmic Cloud.
    Making the place darker during a musical performance - Darkness invocation. Dismiss it when the fight starts.
    Flying around like you own the room - Fell Flight.
    Keeping arrows off of you - Entropic Warding combined with the deflect arrows feat.
    Evil Ball of energy - Eldritch Blast upgraded by the Beshadowed Blast invocation.
    Lots of Evil Balls of energy - Invocking Darkness followed by an Eldritch Blast upgraded by the Repelling Blast, then dismissing your Darkness.
    Wacking the central pillar when some duffuss farie-boy tries to get under you - Blast upgraded by the Eldritch Doom invocation.

    "I have the Craft Construct feat?" you ask? Do Iron KnucklesTM grow on trees? NO! You make them. Now you're asking "I have the Craft Contingeant Spell feat, too?" See below

    Crafted Contigeant Spells: If my HP is equal to or less than 0, cast the Daylight spell. When I die, cast True Resurection on me. 20 seconds after the True Resurection contigeant spell goes off, transform me into an ogre by casting Polymorph on me. (Triplet)When I transform into an ogre, cast Bull's Strength, Bear's Endurance and Eagle's Splendor. If while in ogre form I am reduced to 0 or less HP, cast Flase Life on me. (triplet)When the False Life contingeant spell goes off, cast Expeditious Retreat, Haste and Iron Body on me.Other Things you need to do: Set up a trap that goes off when subjected to bright light, such as that from the daylight spell. The trap is a timed delayed colaspe of your entire fortress. Make two longswords sized for an ogre, and call them "Hrarr" and "Kwoo-eer". Cast Arcane Mark and Drawmi's Instant Summons on them from scrolls you've made. When you start transforming into an ogre, call your swords too you. Surround the ruins of your fortress with Wall of Perious Flame invocations. Go crazy and kill something!

    With all this, no fancy-pants farie-boy is going to bother you and live to tell about it.

    That Ganondorf is OoT and this one is supposed to be Twilight Princess, so it doesn't really match up.

    It's sad though. The links don't work anymore and now you can't find anything there.

    Ganon is in-progress by Kazudo, so that should help a lot. That's the OoT version whereas I'm looking for the Twilight Princess version.

    I'll mark Bowser as In-Progress by you, though.

    I'm adding all contributions to the list regardless of what they are, I don't know who half of them are due to the fact I've never played the games. And taking down an omnipotent character in D&D is maybe just a little different to taking them down in their respective games.

    In fact, I can take King Vendrick, though he will probably suck.
