Top 10 hardest boss fights

I have always wanted to do a top 10, and now, thanks to the forums, I can!
But sadly, to make a top 10 list, I need to have experience with multiple types, on all of the game's bosses.
I have gotten up to Cool Ranch pt. 2 on a Witchdoctor, and Monquista with a Swashbuckler.
So I am asking for YOUR ideas. Who is hardest, in your opinion?

Criteria for posting a top 10 on this forum:

Clarify what types you have done each boss on
Clarify how far into the storyline you are
Clarify whether a boss is main story or side quest
You may not post bosses you have not fought

You may include a bit about what makes the boss hard too.

So if you want to post your number ten as The Brass Monkey, you might post it as

10. Brass Monkey, Main story, fought as
Watch out for the Monkey's traps when playing melee.

This is just an example based on my friend's experience of the fight.

I can't wait to hear your opinion. Who did you find hard?

Trippin' down Memory Lane,
Recallin' days of woe and pain.
The Ten who caused such disaster,
Only made me level faster.

10. Chumbawumba level 10, Witchdoctor and privateer had the most trouble
9. Gortez level 13- 14, Wd and Priv. most problems
8.Monkey City Drains, level 16-17 SWB, Priv and WD had most problem.
7.Hidden Valley Ranch level 18-19 all classes had trouble here
6.Frank and Jesse Cranes level 25 SWB ( learned my lesson - DON'T go in there under level 32! However I did it! )
5.Deaon, Motherload Mine level 38-40 Musketeer and Wd had the most problems
4.General Tso level 48 all classes had to fight final battle at least twice.
3.Beachhead ( all parts ) level 58-59 Wd have an especially hard time, due to Bishop
2.Wreck of the Victory level 59-60 WD should not directly attack Rooke!
1.Hydra level 60+ all classes.

Now my head hurts

Maybe I should have included The Presidio, but Chumbawumba was the first boss we face that had a cheat, and I should include Fort Basset, which I faced as a Sw at level 52. I didn't include Fort Basset, because after figuring out a strategy for the Commander Davis battles, it's not very difficult. My criteria to make the list had 2 requirements; it had to have defeated 2 or more companions and have sent me to a life fountain at least once.

I'm doing Top 8- these are the only battles I ever struggled with on any character- two level 65's, a 29, 25, and 20.

8. Scylla, Main Quest, Aquila, beaten on
If you don't have the biggest ship possible, you're going to have a bad time. Also, that battle in the middle is pretty tough- second chance on a battle where dodging is critical is very, very annoying.

7. Deacon, Main Quest, Cool Ranch, beaten on
A tough, fun battle that has a very unique set-up: but it's easy to deal with.
6. General Tso, Main Quest, Mooshu, beaten on
By all accounts, this battle should be easy- but it's not.
5. Fin Dorsal, Main Quest, Skull Island, beaten on
Bear with me- he's actually kind of hard when you're learning the game- if you don't get lucky with him, you're losing a companion. No heals, few attacks... Fin can hit pretty hard.
4. Bishop, Main Quest, Marleybone, beaten on
He has a lot of cheats that can really hit you hard if you aren't prepared to deal with them.
3. Frank and Jesse Cranes, Side Quest, Cool Ranch, beaten on
Can you say difficulty spike? If they appeared a little later they'd be dead in a giffy- but they don't. They just kill you.
2. Rooke, Main Quest, Marleybone, beaten on
The reason Rooke is so far up here is for the poor Musketeers. By the way- don't use musketeers. Just in case you were wondering.
1. Hydra, Main Quest, Aquila, beaten on .
Everything about the Hydra is hard. EVERYTHING. I've never beat him on my first try, and on my buccaneer, I actually needed help from a friend- the only battle in the game I needed help with.

Although there are certainly more, I do have to say that Captain Blood and the Maruzame Metal Guardian gave me a good run for my money.

Pain and sorrow,
Misery and pain,
As we take a trip down memory lane.
Many fights, many deaths,
Filling my heart with dread,
Giving me nightmares as I slept in bed.

Pre-note: All of these were done on my musketeer.

10. Deacon: Overall, a really hard boss that can heal and strike at long distances. He was easy, but he was still memorable.

9. Chumba Wumba: Trying to get all of the totems without getting killed made this fight hard and fast. It was a nightmare for me back then.

8. Kirigi: This ninja pig made getting Monkey King's armor all too difficult.

7: Dopplegangers: Monkey King's dopplegangers were TOO hard back in the day. I died many times.

6: General Tso: It took 2 tries, the second one having help. He is HARD.

5: Captain Blood: The whole 2 hour dungeon made you tired of fighting, leaving you vulnerable to making mistakes when fighting this demon and his undead minions.

4: Gortez: ALL TOO HARD. He is deadly powerful, and it takes a lot of hard hits to bring this beast down. However, beating him 25 times gets you the chance to buy the Goronado companion, which is worth the pain.

3: Antinous: EXTREMELY HARD. Bring an all Swash team.

2. Rooke: Rookochet made him all too difficult on my musketeer. Keeping him away from Nelson was a challenge.

1. STORMZILLA: One word describes this legend: NIGHTMARE. I died almost a dozen times.

All these bosses,
All these foes,
Bringing death, misery, sorrow and woe.
Prepare for death, ye of strength,
As ye've made your last mistake.

Well I'm currently at a level 55 swashbuckler, but i can do a top ten anyway.
10. Fort Basset. I barely made through the three wave battle!
9. Beachhead Central Core. The final battle with Bishop took an emergency friend call to complete.
8. Chumbawumba. I beat him with like one health point left.
7. Presidio. After dying a few times, I took the hint and leveled up.
6. Gortez. Another one health point win.
5. Fin and Armada. Just pulled through after defeating the Armada captain with no companions left.
4. Governor Nakamura. The final battle destroyed me. Being new to Mooshu, it was extremely difficult at first.
3. Old Chirp Place. I went through this battle like fifteen times before winning.
2. Motherlode Mine. Hardest. Battle. Ever.
1. Wreck of the Victory. I may not have done it yet, but the rumors I've heard are terrifying.

In final battle with Rooke DO NOT use musketeers or Witchdoctors! Best bet - go with your best Buccaneers or swashies!

You were in the twenties when you fought Deacon? I was level 35, or 36, or something, and got DESTROYED.
