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

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)

2 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

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

3 Grim Matchstick Grim Matchstick

I like this dragon - ArcticWolf

He wrecked me - hiphopgod

According to me,the best boss in the game and also the most difficult to fight

He’s hard but fun, too adorable to hate! Expert mode which appeared to be easier made him my favourite boss! I just love how he stutters when he wins! Proving he’s actually a nice and cute boss

4 The Devil The Devil

I love the devil for some strange reason

I love the Devil, best character in the game

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!

5 Beppi The Clown Beppi The Clown

Nice penguins and Charlie Horse. - Bertie11

6 King Dice King Dice

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.)

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

He is my favourite: he gets my vote!

7 Werner Werman Werner Werman

I just love this german rat!

Should be much higher.

This guy is the best rat in the world
Fyi, he kind of reminds of the nazi’s, no offense werner

Nononononono! Why isn’t he in the top ten!? He’s so awesome and hilarious and fun! Move him up!

8 Hilda Berg Hilda Berg

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

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

9 Phantom Express Phantom Express

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

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

10 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.

The Contenders

11 Djimmi The Great Djimmi The Great
12 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?

13 The Root Pack The Root Pack
14 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.

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

I love his design.

19 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!

20 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)

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

21 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!

22 Phear Lap Phear Lap
