    Your favorite "first boss" in a jrpg?

    Caruban in Legend of Legaia There's nothing special about him or his fight in terms of mechanics, but as a first boss he feels super threatening and kinda unsettling, and that unsettling, almost horror-y tone is an important part of the game's identity I guess compared to a lotta other JRPGs...

I have a screenshot from my Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild fan remake:
I wish I'd been able to take a photo of the kittens at work. I love working at the pet shop... also those kittens just wanted my attention all day, but I had to stock the cat food and stick stickers on pet beds.
Of course, I did make some time for those sweet little kitties. They just wouldn't stop meowing!
