Top 10 Best Cuphead Bosses


The Top Ten

1 Cala Maria Cala Maria

I want to send a message to anyone in the second phase saying, "You have been STONED."

I personally like this one. It's kinda cool in the 2nd stage, when she becomes a naga.

She is awesome

I hate Mugman x Cala Maria shippers. But Mugman x Cala Maria is not my least favourite ship. - TSLMasterYT

2 King Dice King Dice

King Dice reminds me of Rick Sanchez from Adult Swim's Rick and Morty.

King dice is the best because he is sleazy and sly

I can't parry juggle so this guy is hard

He rock

3 Cagney Carnation Cagney Carnation

Watching his dancing has now made me dance like him on a regular basis, also his music is the best in the game. - kempokid

Such a fun boss to fight. The music that plays during this fight is definitely my favorite song in the game!

This boss was hard but fun his design is so different and his 2 stages so cool

My favorite, Music,Boss,and Seed attacks.

4 Beppi The Clown Beppi The Clown
5 The Devil The Devil

I love the devil for some strange reason

I like him

Cala Maria is mediocre. Her first phase can pead to unfair damage if wrong combination. And a freeze attack? Rly?
And I feel as though People only chose Cagney because of his idle animation. Welp, when I make a game, all I have to do is give them cringy idle animations, and I can make them as bad as I want. Yey! Beppi is unfair with impossible sections in phase 3, and can be glitched. Grim Matchstick is... Actually, I can't really argue with it. Pretty good boss. But the Devil is superior. Get this Mickey Mouse dude up!

6 Grim Matchstick Grim Matchstick

He wrecked me - hiphopgod

7 Dr Kahl's Robot Dr Kahl's Robot

Honestly one of my favorite bosses in all of video games, and that's saying a lot. When you first begin, you have to deal with three different attacks that fit well together. Dodging them requires skills from parrying to live, and always preparing what attacks will come at you next. After you beat one section, a whole new attack begins. This adds variety, and allows different players to choose which set of attacks they want to deal with first. All this happens at the beggining of the battle, so you don't have too far back to go if you die. Then the second phase begins. It acts as a sort of minigame relax between the two hard phases. It also demands the use of bombs to make it easier, without making it to hard to normal gun him. Then the final phase begins, where Dr. Kahl gets angry and stops playing games. This phase reminds me of the days of Clown Car Bowser, where the car would to crush Mario in the final phase. Dr. Kahl laughs crazily as projectiles flood the screen, some of them ...more

Holy moly this boss is hard but is very fun, as it seem to be inspired by dr eggman and Dr wily and it's the joy of beating him when its all over, it feel beautiful.

Hardest boss in the game, requires a lot of trial and error.

I agree but he is hard but he is satisfying to beat and lets you have full control over your character unlike cala maria who freezes you

I have a strange bond with this one, after spending many painful hours trying to beat it - s0ramble

I don’t know what to say besides... I just think they look neat.

11 Werner Werman Werner Werman

I just love this german rat!

Should be much higher.

12 Wally Warbles Wally Warbles

Let it be known that he didn’t die. It you look at his eyes, he’s clearly faking the knockout to prevent any further injuries. After they took his contract, he jumped up. Assuming this is true, we all know he can easily overpower the paramedics, who can only spit pills, and are far smaller.

13 Goopy Le Grande Goopy Le Grande

This is the biggest noob trap in the entire game - thunderstar1124

Simple but sweet

Goopy le Grande kill you in the first degree.
Rest In Peace with a boss like me.
Bouncin’ up and down with a cloppity-hop.
I’m a slippery slugger with my boxing gloves.

14 Djimmi The Great Djimmi The Great
15 Baroness Von Bon Bon Baroness Von Bon Bon
16 Captain Brineybeard Captain Brineybeard

He looks like Bluto from Popeye The Sailor meets Sinbad the Sailor. - egnomac

Underrated boss

Who’s the most remarkable extraordinary fellow?

17 Mr. Wheezy Mr. Wheezy

I love his design.

18 Ribby and Croaks Ribby and Croaks

I think this boss fight is super creative, especially when you get to the second phase. I hope you're feeling lucky!

19 Rumor Honeybottoms Rumor Honeybottoms
20 Pip and Dot Pip and Dot

Pip and dot are a wierder creation than king dice and are my 2nd favourite after king dice plus they are pretty easy to deal with. I OFFICIALLY LOVE THEM!

21 Sally Stageplay Sally Stageplay

The second phase with the babies throwing their milk and the rats was a fun addition to make the fight go from another boss to something I honestly found to be really cute. The following weather round and then standing ovation made it feel like I was taking part in a play rather than tearing my hair out over a fight. (I did this right after Dr. Khal's Robot)
