Majora's Wrath always fascinated me since I was a kid.

Majora was some kind of awesome, Lovecraftian-cosmic-horror, and it was the first Zelda boss that really freaked me out.

^ The "eyes" on Majora's Mask are actually boobs. Cannot unsee.

Majora is a feminine deity, the Internet convinced me and now there's no going back, you can fight me on this.

Majora just has big nipples

Now that I think about it, Majora is a good design in many ways. I like the idea of flesh and body growing from something that should be inanimate.

Plus you have its (available) backstory: a tribe used the mask for dark rituals, and somehow a consciousness of sorts formed. Did it arrive there, or was it born there?

Can I just say that I really love Death Sword?

Image

Everything about him is great. When you first enter the room, all you see is a lone sword thrust into the floor, bound by ropes and paper wards. He looks horrifying and has a ghastly howl as he floats around the room. And when he dies, he dissolves into a swarm of insects. He's all-around awesome and creepy and is part of what makes the Arbiter's Grounds such a memorable dungeon.

Totally forgot about him. All of TP's mid-bosses are really well done as well.

I liked General Onox's dragon form in Oracle of Seasons.

I just thought it was a simple but aesthetically pleasing dragon.

^Dude, good pull. It was pretty ballsy for OoS to make the final boss a side-view fight. Almost felt more like a Megaman X boss than a Zelda boss.
