Top 10 Best Cuphead Bosses

The Top Ten

1 Cala Maria

She’s so cute! Plus her with snake hair reminds me of Celia from Monsters Inc.

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

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)

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

2 Cagney Carnation

A really fun boss that is the perfect balance of difficult and doable. And there is a reason floral fury is in smash bros.

He has not only the best theme, but his lil nay nay thingie is PERFECT

Fools who attempt to fight this will leave with allergic rhinitis!

So hard to beat, the variety and speed of his attacks are overwhelmingly awesome! His idle animation is the best!

3 Grim Matchstick

This boss is defiantly the coolest in my opinion, not to mention fun

He looks like King Ghidorah from the Godzilla franchise

that's all

Looks like Mecha Dragon from Mega Man 2

Very fun & definitely the coolest character!

4 King Dice

I know king dice is the kind of the easiest boss in the game but he is quite a good boss because you a lot of other bosses

Speaking of devianart, he looks a lot like Father Time from Rebornica's art. And he's hot too.

I’m the person who published king dice and I got to king dice but died a lot

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

5 The Devil

Not very creative in looks but otherwise it is a cool boss

I love the devil for some strange reason

A perfect final boss.

I love the Devil, best character in the game

6 Beppi The Clown

This boss instantly became a favorite of mine as soon as I fought him

I love this guy! He has bumper cars, balloon animals, horses and turns into a yo-yo ride!

Nice penguins and Charlie Horse.

The only clown I like.

7 Phantom Express

looks really cool blind specter? the best looks sick and cool also l liked T bone and also head of train cool design and I love it

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 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

All aboard the ghost train

8 Werner Werman

Honestly, I absolutely LOVE the animation when Werner gets eaten by the cat. It's so satisfying to watch and replay over and over again. The animators did a really great job with that. I also love how when fighting Werner you can see the cat's eye through the wood boards which I think is another clever trick.

A very creative and cool boss that I never get tired of fighting

He’s my senpai I also love his animation death screens and I love doing fan art of him!

I just love this german rat!

9 Wally Warbles

I love this but when his head turns in to a trash can... that just scares me

It's just a really fun boss

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 Dr Kahl's Robot

Many hate this boss due to how tough he is but I personally found him a joyride

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.

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

The Contenders

11 Djimmi The Great

So dope. I just love him. His animations are phenominal and I love his secret phase with Puphead.

Twin of Alladin genie

Geneie gone wrong!

Aladin gone wrong

12 Hilda Berg

Hilda's last phase animation when she transitions into the moon is SUPER satisfying (seriously, you should go and watch that in slow-mo) animators once again doing a really great job with flawless animation.

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

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


13 Captain Brineybeard

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

Underrated boss

I love pirates

A fun boss that keeps you on your toes

14 The Root Pack

LOVE the design of the vegetables! Especially Weepy, the onion, It's creative that he's the one crying since ya know, he's a onion. Also the carrot, demonstrating how carrots are good for your eyesight. First boss I played and most liked boss.

Well designed boss

15 Baroness Von Bon Bon

amazing it's my type just not the part where she rips her head of and grows a new one in 1 second

This boss right here was really cool and I like the third phase.

Her over-the-top facial expressions are hilarious! The angry grimaces whenever you defeat a miniboss, the smug smirks as she fires her rifle at you, that psychotic grin right before the final phase...they make her so entertaining--and the angry fist shakes are the icing on the cake! Speaking of cake, I am in love with the candy theming! It's just so colorful and creative! I also love her intro animation. The decapitation in general was an interesting--if somewhat nightmarish--aspect of her level. For these reasons, I can't help but call Baroness von Bon Bon my favorite boss.

Love the candy theme, along with the mini bosses and the overall sweetness, even though the boss herself isn't that sweet...

16 Goopy Le Grande

This is the biggest noob trap in the entire game

Simple but sweet


its kinda scary tbh

17 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

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

Moosicall peeps!

18 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!

Kermit gone wrong!

19 Mr. Wheezy

I love his design AND knockout animation (where he gets stomped by king dice) rip Mr. Wheezy

I love his design.

Smoke boi

20 Mugman

yeah like cupheads brother is the hardest boss in the whole game like OBVIOUSLY!

The hardest boss in the game

Um mugman is no boss

21 Rumor Honeybottoms

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

She is a good ass boss! one cool bee

honey bottoms XD sorry I had to

22 Mangosteen

Kinda Boring But Pretty Cute

A refreshing break in king dices fight

Best casino boss!

23 Phear Lap
24 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!
