Best Video Game Bosses of All Time

The Top Ten

1 Phalanx - Shadow of the Colossus
2 Bowser - Super Mario Series 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

No. No no no no no. That’s not right. Bowser not being number one is a sin. He may be a moron with no plot, no development, and appear way to often, but he’s always fun to fight. Video games are meant to be fun, not great at storytelling or in spectacle. And Bowser always finds ways to be fun.

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

6 Tabuu - Super Smash Bros. Brawl
7 Crystal King - Paper Mario

I agree, he is awesome

8 Ganondorf - The Legend of Zelda 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

9 Dr. Eggman - Sonic the Hedgehog 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.

10 GLaDOS - Portal 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

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.

I stream Undertale on YouTube, and I've been doing genocide...and I have three streams straight (two 90 minutes, one over three and a half hours) of me just struggling to beat Sans, and I still haven't. He's given me a bad time for a while now, and I've gotteeenn dunked on. - WonkeyDude98

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

Prepare to get dunked on

18 Meta Ridley - Metroid Prime

32 Mr. Patch - Banjo-Tooie
33 Carlo Falcone - Mafia II
34 Koloktos - Skyward Sword Koloktos - Skyward Sword
35 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

36 Golden Diva - Wario Land 4
37 Asriel - Undertale
38 The Amalgamates - Undertale

Literally the entire reason why Alphamalg exists. - xandermartin98

39 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

40 Kevin Nash - WWE 12
41 Cleopatra - Double Dragon III
42 Big Daddy - BioShock
43 Cronos - God of War III
44 King Dedede - Kirby Series 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

45 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

46 Master Hand - Super Smash Bros Brawl

It's Easy But It's Epic

47 Duon - Super Smash Bros Brawl
48 TV Remote - Cartoon Network Punch Time Explosion XL
49 The Masked Man - Mother 3
