Top 10 Hardest Video Game Levels

The Top Ten
1 Aztec - Goldeneye 007

The Aztec is a very hard level. I beat it only once on 00 agent, but I haven't done it ever since. It's still a fun level though and it adds a challenge to the game!

2 Tubular - Super Mario World

*le sigh* This level was ridiculous. I tried my best not to rage, but after over 75 (I was counting) tries in 5 consecutive days. I gave up. The next day, my friend came over and tried Tubular. Beat it on his third try. I'm just gonna smash a couple of glasses now...

So Hard I still haven't beat him! I'm glad this is number one because it deserves it!

This level was so hard that I had never played the game ever again.

3 Turbo Tunnel - Battletoads

Two players make things even worse as if just one of you dies, you both have to start over regardless of whether the other is alive and going strong. Sadistic level along with the Rat Race and the Clinger Winger

Harder level than any level on this list. This level is notorious for being the hardest level in a video game.

This should be #1, as it aggravates more people than any other level. Very few people have ever beat it

4 Animal Antics - Donkey Kong Country 2

This is a frustratingly hard level but how is it 3rd place? I'd rather see it around 16th place since the only hard part was the Squawks section, the rest was medium difficulty...

You might not think it's that bad at first, but then... THAT WIND!

Just beat it. Finally. It's been so many years.

5 Dam - Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

What's better than an underwater level with a time constraint? An underwater level with a time constraint with electric coral that gives you just a pixel's room of error to move through it.
That damn dam...

Might as well rename it to damn. Because you'll be saying it over 9000 times during this level.

6 Poochy Ain't Stupid - Yoshi's Island
7 The Perfect Run - Super Mario Galaxy 2

Just wait and see the darker side of the moon in super mario odyssey. Although the darker side is not as hard with assist mode...

TBH I'm only voting so I can comment. This level really isn't that bad if you're patient and you take your time. Did that and beat it on my first try

This and Champions' Road (that one was even worse) are the 2 levels of hell in the 3D Mario series. Thanks a lot Rosalina

8 The Dungeon - Castlevania

In order to have any chance against Death (unless you're a ninja behind the controller), you need to keep the holy water that you get at the beginning of the stage, meaning you need to do a near perfect run throughout the entire stage. This involves also getting through a hall with knights and medusa heads, which is near impossible.

9 Rusty Bucket Bay - Banjo-Kazooie

I'll vote this cause I like this game.
I didn't find any game to say it is "Hardest"
The most of levels I could finish...
There's some DK 2 and DK3 Levels that's hard, but I think its not this ones quoted here.

10 Through the Fire and Flames - Guitar Hero 3
The Contenders
11 The True Arena - Kirby Super Star Ultra

I've actually beat this biotch of a boss rush. Took me 3 months, but I did it.

12 Water Temple - The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

How is this 16, I get why tubular would be harder but this should at least be number 5 because it's boring and hard, switching your boots every 4 seconds is the worst now it did have dark link and he's semi fun to fight, but I got ticked when I found out after all that crap, I fight a stupid water creature.

This level is pretty much a 100 km maze with three stories and different water levels in order to get back and forth between the levels. It took me a solid month to find three keys. Just jump down the bottom, explore every room, raise the water level, jump back down the bottom, explore every room again, raise the water level again, jump back down and explore, lower the water level, explore every room on the second floor...

13 Stage 6-2 - Ninja Gaiden

Are you kidding me how is this not one of the highest levels in difficulty. This level literally made you glitch it at a certain point just to even think of beating it! SO HARD!

I got past this level in two goes.
The jump on 5-2 was definitely one of the hardest obstacles in the game.

Screw this one. You have to have a precise jump and there's always an enemy that reappears.

14 Norfair - Super Metroid Impossible
15 Death Mountain - Zelda 2

I wish I died when I played this game!

16 Kamek's Revenge - Yoshi's Island

I kinda sorta had to look up a walkthrough to 100% this god forsaken level.

17 Kefka's Tower - Final Fantasy VI
18 Terra Tubes - Battletoads

Oh My Gosh. This level is a God Damn Nightmare. It is Turbo Tunnel ramped up to EXTREME. I haven't beat this level yet. I don't even want to explain how bad this level is. Don't even get me started on Rat Race...

19 Event Match 51: The Showdown - Super Smash Bros. Melee

If you perfectly time Roy's counters, then this event will be a cakewalk.

20 Champion's Road - Super Mario 3D World

If you thought The Perfect Run, Special World-8 Crown, and even Mystery House Marathon wasn't already hard enough, have fun wasting countless lives here

21 Special Circut - Super Punch Out
22 Endless World of Yoshi's - Yoshi's Island
23 Event Match 50: Master Hand and Crazy Hand - Super Smash Brothers Melee
24 Tower of Fate: The Ascent (Second Quest) - Shovel Knight
25 Arnhem Knights - Medal of Honor: Frontline

This is where you had to traverse war-torn Arnhen in Occupied Holland. Throughout you and many British NPC had to fight 4 isolated battles including snipers, tanks and panzer squads.

Probably the hardest evel in the game. This has Panzer tanks, Panzergrenadiers, snipers and riflemen, all attempting to shoot your ass off.

Why are all these easy as pie Nintendo games ahead of this? Arnhem Knights is a REAL challenge in comparison
