That's a list of EASIEST bosses, not hardest, unless you're making a joke, or our skill sets are really THAT different. :|

The hardest bosses in each NES game for me are:
MM1: Elec Man (without exploits)
MM2: Quick Man
MM3: Shadow Man
MM4: Ring Man (though competes with Drill Man and Bright Man for the spot)
MM5: Crystal Man
MM6: Tomahawk Man

And the easiest are:
MM1: Cut Man
MM2: Flash Man
MM3: Top Man
MM4: Toad Man (or Dust Man, if we're talking bosses without taking the stage into account)
MM5: Star Man or Gyro Man.
MM6: Wind Man

The hardest ones for me would be:

MM1: Ice Man, because of all of the precision dodging
MM2: Wood Man, see above
MM3: Hard Man, no pun intended
MM4: Bright Man? Never played MM4
MM5: Never played this one either, but from watching let's plays, I'd say Charge
MM6: Tomahawk Man. Definetely.

Hardest:

MM1: Ice Man
Hits hard, tight timing to dodge, slippery floors.

MM2: Wood Man
I find dodging the falling leaves to be difficult due to the zig-zag patterns, the MASSIVE LAG doesn't help either.

MM3: Needle Man
I always struggle with him for some reason, not sure why.

MM4: Bright Man
Blind player's worst nightmare.

MM6: Flame Man
Lacks adequate telegraphing.



Yes, I skipped MM5 intentionally, all 8 Robot Masters have "dumb as rocks" AIs, and the player's Charge Shot is so overpowered, it makes all of them kind of a joke.

Okay, here's my list:

MM1: Elec Man or Ice Man
MM2: Wood Man
MM3: Either Shadow Man or Needle Man, cause i remember not having any trouble with the others.
MM4: Bright Man
MM5: I don't remember any of them being hard.
MM6: In my last playthrough the one i had more trouble with was Tomahawk, but it may be cause i was doing a no-hit run.

If you don't struggle with Charge Man in Mega Man Maker, you won't in Mega Man 5. Crystal Man is way harder.

If you stay close to Crystal Man, he will be way less likely to fire Crystal Eyes, if he can even fire them at all, and that makes the fight way easier.

From the let's plays, it seems like Yellow Switch Palace is the hardest level in Super Mario World.

Here's my real list :

MM1 : Fire Man
MM2 : Metal Man
1: Exploitable.
2: He's so easy I feel you're still joking.

HARDEST:
-1 Ice man. I like this fight, just wish he didn't kill you in 3 hits. The Ice slashers are really compacted and if you don't hurry up he'll speed up greatly.
-2 Wood man. The precise dodging (especially going under him) is painful.
-3 Needle man. I don't think I need to comment. I HATE THIS FIGHT.
-4 Drill man. I got good at dodging Pharaoh man, but never Drill man. The only hard part is dodging him when he spends long amounts of time above ground but that's still enough to do it. THIS FIGHT IS SO TEDIOUS.
-5 I guess the hardest would be maybe Wave man. I mean... none of the bosses in 5 are very hard.
-6 Flame man. Needs better telegraphing.

EASIEST:
-1 Cut man. Takes 10 hits from the buster and can be pushed against a wall easily being killed with little fight back from him.
-2 Crash man. It's more of a tie between Crash man and Bubble man. They have way too easily exploitable A.I.'s to bring any challenge.
-3 Top man. Do I need to give a reason.
-4 I'm not even going to say his name. You already know. We all know.
-5 Stone man. just a "harder" version of the last one that we don't talk about...
-6 Plant man. Just camp in a corner and fire away at him. Hardly any skill needed.

While I'd had some good experiences here, it's quite mortifying to reflect on how immensely immature I've acted in the past. Retaining this sentiment, I'll mostly remain inactive.

Ok, beat MM without the pause glitch and say Fire man is exploitable again lmao.

Metal man is just the hardest in MM2. Not a particulary hard boss though. Harder than Wood man, which attacks are easily dodgeable imo (the only tricky part being when he walks towards you), harder than quick man, which is kinda the same and you can easily beat him with crash bombs, harder than Air man, which some of his attacks are hardly dodgeable but doesn't make that much damage and so on.

I don't think your opinion is better. I can easily beat Drill man or Ice man without getting hit, so I could say it makes me sad too but whatever.

I don't think he's talking about the pause glitch. If I remember correctly, you can exploit Fire Man to make him shoot while you're jumping at full height, so that you'll dodge both the fire wave and the small fire that gets created.

I meant you can just jump and shoot at the same time when he attacks and he'll never freak out, a known exploit. You assume a lot of things.

You're telling me you think one of the easiest bosses is hard yet some of the hardest is easy to you?

Ice man can be killed instantly with elec beam and drill man is quite predictible and take much damage when hit with charge shot.

I wouldn't say they are difficult in that regard.

But everyone plays differently, everyone has different skills.
