If you are saying ludwig is harder Bowser I was stuck Bowser on for 10 days you hear that!

Um don't mind the previous comment Ludwig is really hard and that was 3 years ago when I had bad grammar so yeah... - Enderspark2791

Very hard you are on three tiny platforms and he shoots like five fireballs at a time

I found wendy's battle harder

23Blizzard Midbus - Mario & Luigi Bowser's Inside Story

Oh, that thing. At least 2 months it took me. Still not as bad aa Dark Bowser, who I've been trying to beat for over a YEAR. NO KIDDING.

I don't get it. Everyone acts like blizzard MIDBUS and crystal king are the hardest bosses ever. I beat both on my first try ith out any retry clocks or life shrooms. They're both pushovers if you know their trick which are both pretty obvious.

This boss makes you wanna throw your 3ds or ds out the window

24Bowser - Mario Party 7Bowser or King Koopa is a video game character and the primary antagonist of Nintendo's Mario franchise.

Fun game in my opinion though in my opinion though! - HeavyDonkeyKong

Mario Party 7 is one of the worst Mario games anyways. This game gets an 12/100 score.

25Shadoo - Super Paper Mario

You MUST be prepared! Each have 100 hp, with 10 attack, but mario's hammer, Luigi's high jump, and bowser's attacks all are 20 attack each. AND you have to go through the flopside pit of 100 trials TWICE.

The game was the best, the music was the best, the story was the best, and the bosses were the best. And by that I don't mean that they were the easiest.

It is easy if you use Bowser and use your flames to knock them back and use barry to defend yourself the annoying thing that you have to do the pit twice. I had 90 hp, and 34 attack with Bowser, and it was not too hard, and it was pretty easy when I was flaming at it.

26Huff N. Puff - Paper Mario

I'm surprised he's so low on the list(and after the crystal king). This boss was a pain to beat, because it had strong attacks and healed over and over again. The worst part is when you mash A, and you know no matter how hard you try you will always take two hits. Fighting the boss left you with sore thumbs.

Hard but much easier if you use bows outta sight ability on his electric attack


I was trying to beat him just now. I quitted playing Paper Mario because of that CURSIN' cloud but I might go on playing it again sometime. Anyway, he is VERY hard because, as many times you damage him, Ruff Puffs come out. And, he can eat up all the Ruff Puffs to gain more HP, like 4, 18 or even 20 HP. AND, he gains a electric attack after a few damage which deals...12 damage! You read that right, 12! He also gains another electric attack which deals 10 damage.

This guy is just HECKING HARD.

27Giant Bowser - New Super Mario Bros. Wii

It's hard because you have to dodge attacks and do plat forming and make sure not to fall in the lava. How to make it harder: Don't use the Propeller Mushroom or bring along a friend or 2. Or 3.

This is only hard in multiplayer and not single player because you have to flee from him. 2 other players make it a nightmare

Difficult, very difficult, took me 53 tries to beat ( I AM NOT JOKING)

Try it with 4 players aka living nightmare

29Elder Princess Shroob (Form 2) - Mario and Luigi Partners in Time

30Chakron - Mario and Luigi - Bowser's Inside Story

A boss that is literally INVINCIBLE. The only weak thing is that he falls if you get an excellent in snack basket.

HE's NOT EVEN A BOSS! THEY JUST GAVE HIM BOSS MUSIC FOR SOME REASON 9 like in paper Mario here every once in a while a random small horde of enmies attack you and it says it's a boss but there are normal types of enemies that are harder than that

Get an excellent snack basket and no prize?!

This guy surely wants to end a diet

31World 8 Bowser - Super Mario 3D Land

He could be a pain in the butt sometimes but he is easy for me

32Bowser Jr.'s Boomsday Machine - Super Mario Galaxy 2

This boss is so hard! It took me five tries to beat it. I think it is the hardest boss in the Mario series! This guy should be at least in the top 3.

This guy could have been made harder but it wasn't hard, it just took time.

This took me ages. Don't get me started about the daredevil comet...

REALLY PEOPLE?! This boss was easy as heck!

33Bowser Memory MLX - Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story

This boss is just pain. First I had to be level 34. 2 I kept running out of coins. 3 I hadn't found falling star.4 I didn't have very good gear. 5 stupid lx healed mx like five times FIVE TIMES.6i kept running out of turns. 7 I had 2 1 up mushrooms 3 super syrup jars and 6 super mushrooms.

Attack Lx with falling star until he runs away, then use falling star on Mx till he comes back. Reapeat process and your done with the battle.

35Dark Bowser & Fawful - Mario and Luigi Bowser's Inside Story

I've been stuck on Dark Bowser for over a year. Seriously, I'm not exaggerating. If it's taken me THIS long, only to get that far, I'm never going NEAR Cackletta's Soul.

High attack, high defense, moves that mess with your mind and take advantage of your instincts, and a timed 4th phase. This boss is hard. - JFought

Two bosses in one wow you see me most likely to defeat fawful first

36Boolossus - Luigi's Mansion
37Antasma - Mario and Luigi: Dream Team

He keeps eating those dark balls which makes her stronger at every turn. How is that not hard?

If you get damaged, you fall asleep and end up in an nightmare skipping a whole turn!

I hate how he sometimes turns the screen upside down. It's the part I always die on!

It's a him not a her

38Gloomtail - Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door
39Count Bleck - Super Paper Mario

He's easy! Not hard at all! I could beat him with my hands tied to my back!

If you are using Bowser's fire power and Carrie, he is a piece of cake

He's easy! Use Bowser and carrie the whole battle and he's dead in only 3 minutes

Easy is easy I used Mario and jumped on him and it was easy
