Kingdom Hearts 3
Love it or hate it, Kingdom Hearts 3 has some pretty good boss fights. In particular, the fight against Aqua or Anti-Aqua stands out as one of its most memorable.
The lore behind this fight tugs right at your heartstrings especially since we were meant to save Aqua from the darkness only to find out that we arrived too late to save her.
Like 10 years too late but whatever
It’s a bittersweet fight that you don’t really want to fight because that’s our girl Aqua.
Add that in with brutal attacks, fast hits, and the fact that you can control
my husbando Riku and then our golden boy Sora, it turns into an exciting and unforgettable fight.
