One particular and UNIQUE feature on the Darius series is their many fascinating bosses, which are almost always based on Aquatic life. In all Darius Series, when an encounter with a boss is near, it shows a message like:

                                  A HUGE BATTLESHIP.
                  (insert "CODE Nº" + boss' code here if avaliable)
                               (insert boss name here)
                                 IS APPROACHING FAST

The following is a list of bosses featured in the Darius Series, ordered by game. The list is always prepared to be updated when a new Darius game is at hand. The bosses marked with * are NOT based on Aquatic life forms.
