If you think the bosses in Zelda have been getting kind of lame lately (no offense, Stallord) and think you can do a better job, here’s your chance!

The Design a Boss contest is back this Fall to let users share their ideas and compete to prove who can design the greatest boss of all time. Design a Boss | Lupus is offering the grand prize of a Nintendo DSi and will also award the leading designers with many other prizes. The contest started November 15, 2009 and will conclude January 10, 2010. Hop on to the boards this holiday season to unleash your imagination.

The rules and details can be found in this thread in our Future Zelda forums. So get on there and make the best boss you possibly can. I would enter, but all I can think is Ganontrain and I don’t feel comfortable crushing the competition with such an awesome boss.

    I really should put my drawing skills to their full potential here if I want to win. And I will draw my best even if it kills me. Not literally, though.

    I was going to ask the same question only that my ideas or on paper. And I have a good number of boss drawings. So… What do I do? And if someones drawing gets picked, will that person get credit for submiting the drawing/sprite/3-D model?

    Hey, guys.

    Drawings are good and all, but they won't help your entry beyond helping the judges to visualize whatever you drew. All the points come from what you type.

    Check out the thread for more information (more rules, PRIZES, PRIZES, entries that have already been made, judging criteria, PRIZES…)

    yeah like double a said, its all written. you can give a drawing if you want but all things will be judged based on what is written. (im a judge on ns2)

  • This seems cool but i have a question if you will anwser. I have a great idea for a boss but sadly i can only design flat sprites. Will those be acceptable?

    • Ozzie

  • ChainofTermina

    type? wait you mean its about how Link will fight the thing? not what it looks like?
