Best Video Game Bosses of All Time

The Top Ten

1 Phalanx - Shadow of the Colossus
2 Bowser - Super Mario Series Bowser is the main antagonist of the Mario Bros. Franchise. From kidnapping Princess Peach to simply destroying a fun game between Mario and Friends in the Mario Party spinoff series, this king of the Koopas has set up a certain hatred towards himself amongst the large cast of Mario Characters. He first ...read more.

Its not always the same exact thing. There have been plenty of times where no switches whatsoever have ever been involved. In my opinion. - HeavyDonkeyKong

He has fire. Fire is great. - Connor360

Bowser is 1, I think this list is rigged

It's almost the same, run to the switch that destroys the brodge before this turt,e dragon turle dragon turtonator gets you

3 Lechku and Nechku - Okami
4 Twinrova - The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
5 Crystal King - Paper Mario

I agree, he is awesome

6 Ganondorf - The Legend of Zelda Ganon (Referred to as Ganondorf in human form) is a fictional character and the central antagonist of Nintendo's Legend of Zelda series. He is a power-hungry Gerudo who possesses the Triforce of Power and aims to conquer Hyrule with the remaining Triforce parts.

The final boss fight in twilight princess is amazing - Tisme_draGON

7 Dr. Eggman - Sonic the Hedgehog Doctor Ivo "Eggman" Robotnik is a fictional video game character and the main antagonist of the Sonic the Hedgehog series, created by Sega.

I actually prefer Metal Sonic.

8 GLaDOS - Portal GLaDOS is a fictional artificially intelligent computer system appearing in the video games Portal and Portal 2. The character was created by Erik Wolpaw and Kim Swift and voiced by Ellen McLain.

Someone you can't brute force to death. Great character, and fun boss fight. Redirecting rockets, incinerating the infamous cores and listening to her snide remarks beats jumping over a certain boss and hitting a lever.

Eh, she's a great character, but the boss fight wasn't amazing.

Someone from Pokemon is higher on the list than GLaDOS... How?

Differing opinions? I've never played portal though. Sadly though. - HeavyDonkeyKong

Still alive was great.

9 The Great Mighty Poo - Conker's Bad Fur Day The Great Mighty Poo is a fictional character appearing in the 2001 video game Conker's Bad Fur Day. He is a giant, opera-singing pile of feces that appears as a boss in the sloprano chapter.

People like a pile of poop?

10 Bad Girl - No More Heroes

The Contenders

11 Zant - The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess Zant is the usurper king of twilight and is the main villain of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess.
12 Meta Ridley - Metroid Prime

14 Sans - Undertale Sans or Sans the Skeleton is a character in the 2015 RPG Undertale created by Toby Fox. He is a lazy, pun-loving skeleton who is a supporting protagonist in the "pacifist" and "neutral" routes of Undertale, and a heroic antagonist/final boss of the "genocide" route. He is known for his incredibly difficult ...read more.

Great music, really hard and gives Sans a lot of character development. This needs to be much higher.

Prepare to get dunked on

B.A.D TIME TIME - KingDedede

15 Clockwerk - Sly Cooper
16 Asriel - Undertale
17 Cynthia - Pokemon Diamond

This boss greatly from any final boss in video games, this champion is better than any final boss.

Cynthia is from pokemon and pokemon is great, this is saying cynthia is great

I want to everyone to like this boss battle from every okami boss in the playlist!
Because she have an "Spiritomb, Milotic, Roserade, Togekiss, Lucario and Garchomp", This is very likely from all video game boss battles!

Cynthia beating shadow of the colossus by anything. she is so cool. - mewtwo1

18 Gehrman - Bloodborne
19 Dr. Nefarious - Ratchet & Clank

How is Falcone higher than Nefarious? And what is Big Daddy doing on this list? He isn't even a boss

20 Roxas - Kingdom Hearts II
21 Mr. Patch - Banjo-Tooie
22 Del Lago - Resident Evil 4

Although not the best boss in resident evil 4 (verdugo has that position) this is still a damn fine boss. It is tense, makes you feel underpowered, and a challenge seeing as it is so early on in the game. Everything a boss fight should be.

23 Psycho Mantis - Metal Gear Solid
24 Tabuu - Super Smash Bros. Brawl

Do you know that one shockwave attack that is super OP and impossible to dodge unless you have frame perfect timing?

YESS Tabuu! He's a bit easy it he's fun to fight and there's accomplishment in defeating him cause of his hard to dodge move set.

25 Wheatley - Portal 2
26 Gwyn - Dark Souls
27 Poseidon - God of War III

Formerly a mortal man, Galactus is a cosmic entity who originally consumed planets to sustain his life force, and serves a functional role in the upkeep of the primary Marvel continuity.
30 Ballos - Cave Story

Criminally underrated game

31 Vergil - Devil May Cry 3
32 Mary - Silent Hill 2
33 Kingfin - Super Mario Galaxy
34 Big Daddy - BioShock
35 Koloktos - Skyward Sword
36 Master Hand - Super Smash Bros Brawl

It's Easy But It's Epic

37 Carlo Falcone - Mafia II
38 The Phaze Destrortur - Radiation's EarthBound Halloween Hack

Well, there IS the challenge of trying to save up enough restoration items to beat this boss with all three of your party members alive...

What makes this battle great isn't so much the challenge (it's WAY too easy if you happen to know its main weakness) but the incredibly horrifying feel that you get from its appearance and backstory, as well as its disturbing attacks. - xandermartin98

39 The Masked Man - Mother 3
40 Golden Diva - Wario Land 4
41 Metroid Prime - Metroid Prime
42 Disciple Dickson - Xenoblade Chronicles
43 The Amalgamates - Undertale

Literally the entire reason why Alphamalg exists. - xandermartin98

44 Alphys NEO - Undertale

That feel when you realize that this is actually a harder boss battle (and has a better theme as well) than the Sans one... - xandermartin98

45 Mr. Freeze - Batman Arkham City Mr. Freeze, real name Victor Fries, is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics, commonly as an adversary of the superhero Batman.
46 Cleopatra - Double Dragon III
47 Cronos - God of War III
48 King Dedede - Kirby Series King Dedede is a fictional character and the primary antagonist of the Kirby series of video games owned by Nintendo and HAL Laboratory.

Epic theme tune. I loved his attacks in Epic Yarn

49 The Boss - Metal Gear Solid 3

Snake must kill his mentor and spiritual mother, but she died for her country. The last part of the battle where you have to finish her off was giving me the feels

50 Seven Force - Gunstar Heroes
