We now start Week 2 of the popular new series, Best In Series. (Of Mario) I've decided we start a new one ever Sunday. Now we began. What Mario game has the best final boss battle? It's recommended you don't say WHO the final boss is directly, just the game.

Week 1(Best Attacks): Mario and Luigi: Super Star Saga


BEST FINAL BOSS BATTLE:
Super Mario RPG (1)
Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door (1)

Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door (anyone else who's beat it want to agree in spoiler tags?)

Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door I agree.

Yeah, the music was awesome for both fights, and the fact that the first form was basically Peach was cool (of course, they kinda took that idea a little and used it when you fight Puppet Zelda in Twilight Princess, but hey).

Super Mario RPG.
That was a joke.

Call me old-fashioned, but I've gotta go with SM64... Even though it's not that old.  Still, please call me old-fashioned.  I kind of consider it a compliment.

Super Mario RPG contains the best final boss battle, even though it's not my favorite (that would be the one from the first handheld outing).

Other than the fact that after level 40 it loses its challenge entirely, I'll go with Superstar Saga.

Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island (though Superstar Saga is a close second)

Hard to say. I'm going to choose SMW2: Yoshi's Island. You know, the battle against Baby Bowser (I called him Bowsie). The second part of the battle ticked me off something royal, but it's hard to top the intimidation of seeing Bowser getting ever closer to the screen. And it's funny that an egg going straight up in the air always hits something flying overhead.

Other favorite final boss battles include the fight against Bowser in Super Mario World (for nostalgia), and the final battle in Super Mario RPG (great music, and the guy looks like a demented Santa Claus).
You didn't say wot wot.

I'm gonna go ahead and say Super Mario 64, although Yoshi's Island and Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga deserve some attention as well (and I see that they are).
