Top 10 Best Cuphead Bosses


The Top Ten

1 Cala Maria Cala Maria

I liKE wHeN hER hEaD fALls oFf

Quite good, she is even a giant foam that can't be knocked back,
she can stone the enemies when transformed, except GOLEM, because it is already a stone, and miner, because he digged down if smart enough.
And the most impressive part is Cala maria as Goblin Giant because she can carry cuphead and Mugman, it means Goblin giant meets Cala Maria, and have a fight with each other (inspired to clash royale)

Best boss ever - Myname2

She's good and she is my teammate you'll see my teammates in this game on my number 1 favorite character.

3 Cagney Carnation Cagney Carnation

I like him because he has a difficult second phase and has a cool dance

Love Cagneys dance moves I have a new dance called Cagney including his dance moves and song lol!

Best thing about cagney is the hand dance he is the dancing queen ( or king)

This boss sucks - Myname2

4 King Dice King Dice

He should be in first place cause he's popular in Deviantart. Hopefully he'll get first place.

Should've been #1

He is AWESOME! I like the moustache (somehow).

King Dice should definitely be number 1. He has the coolest boss fight, an awesome theme song, an interesting role in the story, and he's by far the most unique and developed character personality. (Also, I am aware that he's based off Cab Calloway.)

5 Beppi The Clown Beppi The Clown

Nice penguins and Charlie Horse. - Bertie11

6 The Devil The Devil

I love the Devil, best character in the game

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!

7 Phantom Express Phantom Express

All aboard the ghost train

I LOVE this boss. Blind Specter had a cool design, Conductor Cranium was fun and fairly simple, the Blaze Brothers were awesomely designed and attacked well, and the Head if the Train... was not an animation to forget. LAWL

I just love this boss for some reason. The music fits PERFECTLY and is my favorite, all characters are very simple but together thet are just perfect! I haven't played this boss though, so I will probably tell you otherwise once my but is kicked

I like blind specter :P

9 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.

10 Djimmi The Great Djimmi The Great

The Contenders

11 Hilda Berg Hilda Berg

She is my favorite because shes red and I love red and I love her moon faze.

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

12 Dr Kahl's Robot Dr Kahl's Robot

Dr. Wily Wannabe

It is not that hard. Grim and Honeybottoms were way more difficult

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

13 Captain Brineybeard Captain Brineybeard

I love pirates

Underrated boss

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

Who’s the most remarkable extraordinary fellow?

14 The Root Pack The Root Pack
15 Goopy Le Grande

GOOPY GANG - Dolph63

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.

16 Baroness Von Bon Bon Baroness Von Bon Bon

I like the sheer variety of attacks/mini bosses she has, and I'm a sucker both for mini bosses and the candy theme.

She has a gun

17 Sally Stageplay Sally Stageplay

Don't know but I always love boss battles taking place on a stageplay. Also her attacks from the 1st and 2nd phase didn't felt cheap. (Yes. Including the baby bottles) The 3rd phase takes the cake since the whole thing is a reference and parody to Klefka from Final Fantasy

Sallys actress vibe she always gives me and her best ship is her and her husband cause its actually canon most unique and advanced design and personality

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)

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 Mugman

Um mugman is no boss

The hardest boss in the game

20 Mr. Wheezy Mr. Wheezy

I love his design.

21 Rumor Honeybottoms Rumor Honeybottoms

I love her! No, not that sort of relationship.

22 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!

23 Phear Lap Phear Lap
