Video games have become an essential component of contemporary entertainment. Over the years, players have sought to traverse multiple challenging levels and complete various missions, all in an effort to defeat the ultimate final boss.

These evil characters frequently represent the most difficult challenges in the game, necessitating the player’s use of every strategy and instrument at their disposal to defeat them.

The final boss is usually the most formidable foe you’ll encounter, packing a host of mind-bending skills that can make them nigh impossible to beat.

Think Dark Souls’ Ornstein and Smough, Legend of Zelda’s Ganon, or Street Fighter’s M. Bison. To bring down these demigods, you’ve got to put your all into using every skill and tactic you have and dig deeper than ever before.

It all comes down to putting your skills to the ultimate test and proving your mettle.

Similarly, the worlds of sports and entertainment have real superstars that may as well be larger-than-life final bosses. These are the people who have risen to the pinnacles of power and achievement in their specialized industries.

They are frequently regarded as unbeatable, with a wide range of skills that make it challenging to fight with them.

In this article, we will take a different look at final bosses than our readers are used to, exploring the characteristics that make these individuals so challenging to defeat. We will see how they embody the same sense of toughness, resilience, and determination as a video game final boss, and how they have been able to dominate their respective fields.

With their exceptional skills, unique backgrounds, and long-lasting legacies, they truly represent the toughest of the tough in the worlds of sports and entertainment.

Jon Jones – UFC Heavyweight Champion

Is there anything more intimidating than an unstoppable, undefeated mixed-martial arts world champion? We don’t think that there is, and the UFC has its very own final boss sitting at the top of its heavyweight division. And what’s even more intimidating, this fighter in particular can freely take three years off and still be just as dominant as ever.

That’s exactly what Jon ‘Bones’ Jones did prior to his return to action earlier this year. And what’s more, Canadian UFC betting providers knew exactly what was to come.

They made the former light heavyweight king a -182 favorite in his return against the number one ranked heavyweight in the world, Cyril Gane, and Jonny Bones didn’t disappoint, dispatching his opponent inside the opening round and looking as good as ever before.

Jones has beaten everyone that there is to beat in the Octagon. Household names such as Daniel Cormier, Alexander Gustafsson, Chael Sonnen, Vitor Belfort, Rashad Evans, Lyoto Machida, Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson, and Maurício ‘Shogun’ Rua have all fallen before the Albuquerque, New Mexico native, and his 15 years of dominance show no sign of slowing up, despite him now being at the ripe old age of 35. And if that wasn’t impressive enough, the only blemish on his record is a disqualification loss for the use of illegal elbows.

Is there anything more intimidating than a final boss that isn’t afraid of breaking the rules in order to inflict even more pain on their opponent?

Roman Reigns – Undisputed WWE Universal Champion

Before we go into the mind-bobbling facts and figures behind Roman Reigns, we just want to say this. His character in the recently released WWE 2K23 video game is a perfect 99 out of 99, the best rating any active WWE superstar has had in any WWE video game ever made.

If that doesn’t say “final boss,” we don’t know what does.

The reason that the Tribal Chief has obtained such a reason is that he is currently in the midst of the greatest title reign the world of professional wrestling has ever seen.

His current stint as champion spans over 1,000 days and is the fifth-longest title reign in the 70-year history of WWE.

He won the Universal Championship back in August 2020 after aligning with perennial bad guy Paul Heyman and over the course of the last three years, formed the Bloodline faction alongside his real-life cousins Solo Sikoa, Jimmy Uso, and Jey Uso, and they have been instrumental in him clinging on to the gold ever since.

At WrestleMania 38 inside Arlington’s 100,000+ capacity AT&T Stadium last April, he successfully unified his Universal Championship with Brock Lesnar’s WWE Championship, and he has been dominant ever since.

The likes of John Cena, Goldberg, Cody Rhodes, Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn, Drew McIntyre, and many others have stepped up to the plate in an attempt to usurp WWE’s resident final boss and each and every one of them has been sent packing.

Just like the aforementioned Jon Jones, Roman Reigns isn’t afraid of breaking the rules in order to ensure that he clings to his title and defeats his opponent. He uses every weapon he can get his hands on, as well as installing dirty tactics and using interference, ensuring that his opponents are never involved in a clean fight.

And he may well just have the greatest “final boss” entrance music ever created… check it out on Spotify, it’s a banger.
