    I've always wanted to see, but have never been able to figure how to do, the Sinistrals from the Lufia series, specifically as they appear in Lufia and the Fortress of Doom. Bonus point if the build can also incorporate some of their powers from Lufia II: Rise of the Sinistrals.

    • Daos, Sinistral of Chaos (Terror in sequels)
    • Amon, Sinistral of Terror (Chaos in the sequels)
    • Erim, Sinistral of Death
    • Gades, Sinistral of Destruction

    I'm afraid I don't have any experience with the Lufia series. That said, if I can get a list of their abilities, I'll give it a shot.

    Is there anybody willing to give a non-psionic Sephiroth a try? I have a build for a high crit range if we want to say he crits on every attack, and the spell Harm (Cleric 6) from the Spell Compendium (pg. 5) could do the trick for leaving the target with 1HP. Well it's more like 1d4 HP, but basically the same thing. Monkey Grip (Or Wield Oversized Weapon) on a +5 Masterwork Keen Speed Large Greatsword, and I read somewhere that he could be classified as a Half-Giant for the fact that he - like Cloud - is a super-soldier.

    As for the one-winged part and the being able to fly straight with one wing, I have absolutely no clue. I'll leave the heavy damage to you guys too.

    Spoiler: If the high-crit guide is needed.

    • DoD levels grant Iron Power +2
    • Weapon Master Kensei grant Ki Critical
    • Improved Critical
    • Keen kinda takes care of the rest of it

    This build was made for what I like to call the Feral Critgun (A Feral Gargun that wields Colossal Scimitars and crits on a 1-20 with Lightning Mace for infinite attacks and henceforth infinite dablage).

    I can currently think of two ways of handling Sephiroth. One is as some kind of Divine Mind/Ardent/Anarchic Initiate, while the other is as a Binder/Warlock/Escalation Mage/Hellfire Warlock.

    Just some thoughts. I don't think I'll actually begin work on him, since the only experience I have is from the Final Fantasy Tactics spinoffs.

    If you decide to give it a shot and are looking for a guide on his attack patterns, I have a guide for defeating him in which his attack patterns should be derivable.

    And, if the differences are deemed big enough:

    I'm not much for creation, but a lot of these seem pretty complex. I respect anyone with the creativity to work with these character. I'd also like to make my own submission, that of M. Bison (Street Fighter 4 Series) and Juri Han (Street Fighter 4 Series). These two are some scary individuals, but I feel they'd be simpler to make than, say, Jubileus, given they are just fighters. Please and thank you :D

    Okay, so Mewtwo has been shifted over to the anime thread, but he/she/it is a boss in Pokémon Red/Green/Blue/Yellow, Stadium, FireRed/LeafGreen, HeartGold/SoulSilver, X/Y and Mystery Dungeon Red/Blue. Aka just about every game it appears in as capturable/recruitable, and Stadium.

    In Mystery Dungeon it appears at the end of a mega dungeon and "speaks" about waiting to fight anyone strong enough to reach it. So how about he/she/it be requested here?

    Mega Mewtwo Y (Pokémon series)

    While we're promoting soul-ar power, these three.

    Shao Khan (Mortal Kombat)

    Jan Rosencrantz (Vagrant Story)

    Would it be possible to have 2 or 3 versions of the boss, for different ECLs. For example, if you plan to make a level 15 boss, could you see about doing a level 10 one as well. Since you can easily increase the ECL by adding minions, the priority should be to have a weaker version rather than a stronger. I'd suggest 6-8 levels weaker on average.

    You could always just increase the ECL from what is given of your own accord.

    Reaver doesn't count as a boss.
