Boss meter

Video game concept

A variety of elements that pop-up for boss fights, possibly even prior to them starting out. Commonly stating the boss name at start, health, and in some cases some other (possibly useless) information.


The first video game about Boss meter was released on December 12, 2002.

Capcom, Yacht Club Games and Devolver Digital has published most of these games

Fairly common thing, so it might be more interesting to mark cases of boss battles where this is missing rather than the ones where it is present.
