Top 10 Scariest Video Game Bosses

Have you ever had that one boss that traumatized you as a child? See if he's on the list here!

The Top TenXW

1Giygas (Earthbound)

This guy is crazy. the fetuses, the screaming face shape, the fatally wounded music... only thing more creepy is sonic. Exe, and I'm not scared of them anymore but they were so SCARY AT FIRST

Giygas and sorrow both take the number 1 spot because they both have 14 percent the reason giygas is number two is because sorrow was there first

Yeah, yeah. Giygas is so scary right? Not really so if your mad just go make your own top 10 list. - MegaLucario58

Giygas is total nightmare fuel no matter what, I mean hell, they used his bloody background music for SONIC EXE!

2Sorrow (Metal Gear Solid)

By far one of the creepiest, and most interesting, boss fights. The worst part is that you suffer longer if you killed a lot of enemies throughout the game, so your past decisions come back to haunt you.

When you battle him you see visions of the soldiers you killed. And, one of his moves is a screamer. - MegaLucario58

3Zero Two (Kirby 64)

Blood, in a KIRBY game. It's also so unexpected. A dead spirit, that you killed, and did I mention this is a KIRBY game?

Just the fact that it bleeds out of it's eye when shot is really creepy. - MegaLucario58

Not only kirby does not look like a kid game, Kirby's Dream Land 2 is the most unkiddish kirby game. It had a naked woman.

Marx soul is scarier because he has a very loud scream. WARNING THIS GAME HAS JUMPSCARING LOUD SOUNDS BUT NO FLASHING LIGHTS!

4Pyramid Head (Silent Hill)

You hear a slow scraping along the floor... Like metal grinding on Metal. As you look towards the sound, you see a massive man in a bloody smock walks out. At his feet are hundreds of cockroaches, piling over each other in an effort to get to you. As you scream in terror, he turns towards you, and stops, motionless for a few seconds. Then he starts his slow walk towards you, as once again, you hear the sound of his massive blade grinding on the metal floor. You race down the corridor, fearing for your life at the hands of this monstrosity, this abomination of a creature. You come to a door, and in it, you see salvation, a way to get away. You turn the handle... and it's locked. Slowly your flashlight peeters out, as you collapse to ground sobbing. Suddenly, a powerful pair of hands grab you and start dragging you away. "This is the end" you think, as you scream your denial, not accepting your impending death. Suddenly, your dragged into a room, and the metal double doors at ...more

Everyone loves a pyramid-wearing blade murdering freak! He has made several appearances throughout the Silent Hill series and others as cameo like I Wanna Be The Fan Game and others. - MegaLucario58

5Andross (Star Fox 64)

It's just a giant gorilla head with two heads and shoots at you... WAIT. When you destroy it's shell it turns out to be a BRAIN with VEINS and EYES. It seems like Nintendo really messed up on a E-rated game. - MegaLucario58

6Omega Flowey (Undertale)

Be honest, the first time you saw that, thing, you freaked out like a little girl. I MEAN IT WAS A FLOWER AND NOW THIS FREAK OF NATURE? Thanks Toby.

The "Omega" upgrade on Flowey makes him look like he took steroids and even when he gets mad at you he looks like he took meth

This battle is inspired by the Giygas battle. Only with Save Scumming, Art Shift and Sudden Gameplay Change.

Am I the only one who thinks he look more funny than scary? He looks so ridiculous - BlueFrostOfThunderClan

7Little Sisters (Bioshock Series)

Children possess a natural creepiness that has been tapped into for thousands of iconic horror movies, fiction thrillers, and everything that the Olsen Twins have ever done. Their presence in this groundbreaking first-person shooter, however, makes Little Damien's evil ways seem harmless enough to replace Jonathan Lipnicki in Jerry Maguire. They roam the diseased halls of Rapture with the menacing Big Daddy and when they spot you, they order their drill-bit toting protectors to rip out your guts and feed them back to you. If you harvest their "Adam," they turn into wiggly little slugs. If you save and release them, they grow up to get their own reality show on MTV. - MegaLucario58

I guess it's the big daddy's daughter?

8Bitores Mendez (Resident Evil 4)

Remember that tall guy or "the Big Cheese? " That is Bitores Mendez. If the boss battle isn't worse enough with him just all fine until you blow his legs off. HE BECOMES A CRAZY SPIDER THINGY! - MegaLucario58

9Blizzeta (The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess)

Okay imagine this. You walk with your girlfriend to her house. She looks into her mirror and then... NOT TAKE MIRROR

When I saw the "Not take mirror" part, I almost did a front flip over my chair

Oh, it's just a little helpless thingy I forgot it's name. NOPE.. When it looks into the mirror it will probably make you jump if you weren't expecting it. - MegaLucario58

10Ansem (Kingdom Hearts)

That guy that is almost naked attached to a giant fleshy ship thingy? That's Ansem. I suggest you level up a lot before doing this. - MegaLucario58

The Contenders

11The "Phaze Destrortur" (Radiation's Halloween Hack)

"At the time I didn't know why I was so scared. Now I know why...
That machine was a death trap."

The backstory behind this thing makes its appearance even more terrifying. - xandermartin98

12Nemesis (Resident Evil 3)

Its nemesis, enough said

13The Amalgamates (Undertale)

"Welcome to my special hell."

14The Masked Man (Mother 3)

You're fighting your own brother. He's mutated and evil. He beat up your dad. He's mindless. He's heartless. Your dead mother is speaking to you. The music is extremely unsettling. If you lose, the world is destroyed. What can be scarier?

The hole process on how the masked man came to be is disturbing he had all of his limbs eyes and ears ripped off and replaced with robotic parts if that's not creepy I don't know what is.

15Dr. Steinman (Bioshock)
16The Imprisoned (The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword)

Timers freak me out.

17Big Sister (Bioshock)
18Spoiled Rotten (Wario Land 4)

All the bosses in Wario Land 4 are scary! Except for aero dent

When you face him he's so cute but then... The second form


19Hades (God of War III)

He's not really scary. Just intimidating. He's actually not that hard if you've got the moves down.

So badass costume, design. He is the god of underworld. So hard and scary boss fight

20Ballos's Final True Form (Cave Story)
