Armadillo Boss — Ninja Gaiden II (Microsoft, Xbox 360, 2008)Ninja Gaiden II
contained plenty of bad bosses, which ran the gamut from too easy to too hard. But by far the worst offender was the giant armour-plated Armadillo from Chapter 7. Unless you block at the right moment, this guy will kill you by self-destructing ... after you’ve already beaten him
. Talk about low. This has to be one of the cheapest tricks we’ve ever seen from a video game boss. Why not just punch us in the nose, pour beer down our trousers and steal our girlfriends while you’re at it? The next time we see a real-life armadillo, we’re dropkicking it onto a highway. Just try and stop us.
