Hardest Video Game Bosses


The Contenders: Page 3XW

41Phantamanta - Super Mario Sunshine

I didn't think it was that difficult. Just stay on the shore and keep spraying.

42Steel Mechorllia - Mother 3

This guy can hit like a truck, but he isn't too hard. - MKBeast

43Horseback Ganondorf Fight - The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess

Ganondorf and his horse will run into you over and over and over again plus it's hard to hit ganondorf and his horse because of how weird the controls are

I actually thought his final phase was the hardest, this one being the easiest.

44The Yellow Devil - Mega Man

Okay, seriously, compared to the Wily Capsule from Mega Man 7, Yellow Devil is a joke. Honestly. - xandermartin98

ANNOYNG AS HELL! (but awesome music) - LucasMota

There's a difference between difficulty and annoyance. - MKBeast

You can beat him with no pausing

45Wizpig - Diddy's Kong Racing

If you mess up once you might as well start over

46Boolossus - Luigi's Mansion

It starts off easy but as I got to the final boos they become almost impossible to capture. - egnomac

47Red Falcon's Brain - Contra 3
48Galacta Knight - Kirby Super Star Ultra

Marx Soul has nothing on this guy. It is literally impossible for me to beat it without stone... And EVEN THEN it's EXTREMELY HARD! It's really hard because of how FAST he is. Because Meta Knight wasn't hard enough...

49Yunalesca - Final Fantasy X


50Henry - No More Heroes

If you want No More Heroes, be careful of his Instant Kill attack.

51Zero - Kirby's Dreamland 3
52Red - Pokémon Heartgold/Soulsilver

I had to get help from my brother because red kept hurling hail and charzard killed me

This guy has got to be the hardest boss I've ever faced. All of his Pokémon are at least level 80 with overpowered moves, not to mention there's hail (which hurts all Pokémon on the field, making it a double-edged sword), which his Lapras is immune to. I've only beaten Red with a Mewtwo, A.K.A. the cheater's Pokémon, and even then I only won because the hail killed his last Pokémon. He's much harder than in the Gameboy Color version; there, his Pokémon were 10 levels lower, there was no hail, the moves he could use were different, and he had an Espeon instead of a Lapras. Red is evil, no doubt.

53The True Arena - Kirby Super Star UltraV1 Comment
54Ballos - Cave Story

This boss is RIDICULOUSLY hard! I couldn't even believe it, when he first attacked he rammed into me and knocked off half my health and then flew around a bunch and stomped on me. He did this for a while, and then summoned lightning. Instant KO.

I died.

55Emerald Weapon - Final Fantasy VII

Seriously?! This is only #64?! It should at least be #10!

56Merasmus - Team Fortress 2

Super hard when the other idiots on the server won't let you kill him, but some servers have a truce function these days, so that changed it up a bit.

Out of my 5 years playing tf2, I have never once defeated this guy. He chucks bombs at your face, and there are always those people who have already beaten him and don't let you.

57King Dedede - Kirby Air RideKing Dedede is a fictional character and the primary antagonist of the Kirby series of video games owned by Nintendo and HAL Laboratory.
58The Elite Four - Pokemon Emerald

The Elite Four was so annoying with my Blaziken, because Blaziken turns into a Fighting type, he gets A LOT more weaknesses, making him a bad pokemon in the end. Personally, I love him though

The hardest elite four in my opinion. All the other elite fours are super easy in my opinion.

4 Powerful Pokemon trainers simultaneously without going to a Pokemon center to give your Pokemons chance to rest. Now that is hard.

60Junker X - Mario and Luigi Bowser's Inside Story

I never even beat the game because of the non-optional version of this fight.
