Top 10 Best Cuphead Bosses

The Top Ten
1 The Devil

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!

You agreed to my game and you lost!
You accepted the odds, now you'll cough up the cost!
Don't screw with me kid, or I swear
I'll take my tea from your skull like cheap chinaware!

Best boss of the game. And definitely the best final boss of an indie game next to Asriel Dreemurr via Undertale's True Pacifist Run!

2 Grim Matchstick

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

I just love this fight. It's hectic but fun at the same time!

Very fun & definitely the coolest character!

3 Beppi The Clown

Ah, yes, Bepis the Demented Clown.
Jokes aside, Beppi the Clown was annoying. So annoying I wanted to break my console halfway through the fight.
But what I like about Beppi is his personality.
He was charismatic and kept a smile until his final knockout.
Not to mention he survived falling of a horse and bumper car and had his face split open and SURVIVED (he's right and dandy in the good ending)
Also, on the third phase, he has the time of his life on that horse and I can't get enough of it.
His theme, eh. I don't care for it, but it's not the worst. I'll listen to it, but it honestly creeps me out.
Anyway, at the end of the day, Beppi was just...annoying...but he was a fun clown that I felt engaged in looking at.

Really fun, this boss lets the craziness of Cuphead really shine. My favorite phase is when he inflates his head and has balloon dogs trying to bite you, with the roller coaster coming all the time. 2019 Gaming book says Beppi the Clown is the 3rd hardest boss, which is NOT true. I beat this in 1 hour.

4 Cala Maria Cala Maria is one of the bosses in the video game, Cuphead. Her level is in Inkwell Isle Three on the boss level, "High Seas Hi-Jinx!". Her stage is a side-scrolling shooter level.

This is the best air fight in the whole game! Her design is super cute and pretty. She'll use her ghosts that home in on you, and that's always fun. Her fish cannons are really neat, and I love how she tries to look like a leader when she summons the seahorse, turtle, and pufferfish. When the second phase began, I felt really bad that she got shocked. But then she went from super pretty to absolutely beautiful! The Medusa phase is simple but tough. She'll try to stun you with her stone eyes and then get you with the eels. Her last phase is really hard. She'll lead you through a thin corridor, attacking with eye beams and a lot of spikes. Why did I have to kill her?! The ending is sad, but she will live another day! You know you're a cutie, I don't know if I should catch and release.

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)

5 King Dice

The most interesting fight to me, because he isn't just one boss, but is technically 13 bosses in one. You've got 12 "minibosses" that you may or may not need to fight depending on what you roll (the dice-rolling mechanic that determines the boss you fight is interesting in itself). There was no other boss fight that worked like this one, making the King Dice fight the most unique one.

I just love King Dice. He's challenging but not too hard, he has a really nice music, and it is so fun to parry the cards! and he has a cool knockout animation.

They call me King Dice, cause that's who I am!
A royal pain whose diabolical plan
To close some contracts needs a sucker or two
So come on, Cuphead! Kid, I'm talking to you!
Come shake my hand!
We got a deal?
Good, cause now it gets real…

6 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.

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

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

7 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 parriable. This is where you let loose on your anger with ex attacks. I can't find anything more satisfying then grinding at the last phase, and winning right as you wonder if you're missing something. Did I mention the music and atmosphere are amazing too? Amazing boss. Only complaint is that the tracking bomb radius is a bit too big. More of just an annoyance for me though.

8 Werner Werman

Ah, yes, German Rat.
Jokes aside, Werner Werman, although painstakingly easy, was really, and I mean REALLY fun to fight.
His cherry bombs were fun to dodge in his first phase, and the second phase had me scrambling to not get hit.
THEN POOR WERNER GETS CHOMPED-
and we fight the cat that ate him.
Dodging everything that the cat threw out at you was a challenge but you can end of knocking the cat out in no time.
AND WE REALIZE, THE CAT WAS WERNER THE WHOLE TIME!
I felt so betrayed.
But the fight kept me engaged and I felt as if there was always some new creative aspect in each phase.
Not to mention the theme. It SLAPS.
At the end of the day, Werner is a good way for me to let of steam by satisfyingly flying by him.

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.

9 Chef Saltbaker

He is a really cool and evil boss.

10 Phantom Express

I like how this felt like a mix between a standard boss fight and a run n' gun level. It's unlike any other boss/ run n' gun level in the game. A great way to serve as the battle before the finale of the game with King Dice and Devil.

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

The Contenders
11 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.

This is my favorite aeroplane boss. THe insanity of the boss on Expert makes it even more fun for me.

Sky-high violence-
-is what Cuphead has in store!

12 Captain Brineybeard

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

Who's the most remarkable extraordinary fellow?

Found a lot of fun with this one!

13 Djimmi The Great

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

14 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.

When I started the game for the first time I beat the root pack in like 45 min, I was kind of disappointed it was so "easy." I wanted it to be about Hilda Berg difficultyl. I got this game because I wanted a challenge. It is, though.

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

15 Baroness Von Bon Bon

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...

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

16 Mortimer Freeze

This is deffinetely one of my favorite bosses in the entire game. He's got so many cool attacks. Also am I the only one that thinks he looks kinda like Ice King from Adventure Time?

17 The Howling Aces
18 Ribby and Croaks

Ah, yes, Frog and Toad.
(They seriously remind me of Frog and Toad)
All jokes aside, Ribby and Croaks were so FUNNY.
Their Street Fighter references make the whole thing better, not to mention I love their design as frogs.
The fight itself was fun and engaging. The first phase was easy enough, but it only got more challenging (ahem, tigers on phase three).
But I loved these guys, the fight put a smile on my face the whole time. I found them so amusing.
(Especially frog plus toad equals slot machine)
Not to mention the theme. It's my favorite one. EVERY bit of Clip Joint Calamity is good.
At the end of the day, my favorite fight, hands down.

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

This fight is just fun. No joke. It is honestly just a blast to play against these guys.

19 Moonshine Mob
20 Rumor Honeybottoms

While I call in the cops to come bee support!

21 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)

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

For the rest of his headlining gig!

22 Glumstone the Giant

This boss is very cool looking, and every single phase of his fight is creative.

23 Mr. Wheezy

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

I love his design.

24 Pirouletta

I had a fun time facing her.

25 Mangosteen

Some people say he is FREAKY, but some people say he is CUTE. Correct answer? He's a little creepy. His block minions are cute though.
