Top Ten Hardest Bosses in the Paper Mario SeriesKirbyBros
The Top Ten
I Was On Her Just The Other Day! (I Got Her Down To 30 Heath And...) (She Kills ME! ) (HARD BOSS) - papermario
I tried doing this boss hundreds of times (with save states) and it still took me hours
This was the most difficult boss when I fought her but when I fought bonetail I had over 300 HP
I would advise using any sort of healing item when you need it. Jelly ultra, that bread thing etc. Also keep Vivian's health up so you can take out her hands, do high damage and avoid her ultra powerful charge move. If Vivian is dead, use boo sheets and try and do good on power lift.
Vivian is useless! I hate the Shadow Queen anyways. She looks realistically proportioned. Lame! Tabuu is much better.22 Comments
For me it’s no contest
People voted for the Shadow Queen because if they thought she was hard, then they were probably less likely to have even gotten to Bonetail. Bonetail is statistically the hardest boss. He has 200 HP, higher defense, can do about 8 damage per normal attack, inflict status effects, and can only be dealt raw damage or burned. He can also heal himself for 20. This would be difficult enough, but the main cause of difficulty here is that you have to beat him directly after the 100 trials with no save point. You can heal yourself with any items that you have prior to the fight, but you probably don't have any left because of how hard the trials were. Excellent challenge though, 10/10. Shadow Queen's hands are easy to deal with.
Everyone that voted shadow queen obviously hasn't fought bonetail. You have to go through 99 floors of annoying enemies with no save blocks or heart blocks, which takes at least 2-3 hours to do. And if you fail on one of these floors, you have to start all over again. Bonetail also has more health than the shadow queen, higher defense, stronger attacks, and can heal himself for 20 HP.
200 HP, insane defense and your out of power. Yes it is the mighty Bonetail. It was just luck for me, I leveled up on level 99.32 Comments
I Know it is Like the hardest in Paper Mario
This boss was not only hard, but had an amazing theme!
Let's review Paper Mario games & their scores of how good they are.
Paper Mario (the original) - 16/25.
Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door - 2/25.
Super Paper Mario - 19/25.
Paper Mario: Super Seal - 10/25.
Also, the Bowser boss in this game sure is hard, yet it's always worth persisting on anything that is extremely difficult.
Well, here's how my favorite Paper Mario games are.
My top 1 favorite Paper Mario game is the original Paper Mario due to being classic & nostalgic.
My top 2 favorite game is Super Paper Mario due to being a ground breaker & great animation.
My top 3 favorite is Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door.
My top 4 favorite is Paper Mario: Sticker Star.
Grodus is actually really easy in my opinion. He was actually a pretty intense villain but the fight hardly even made me break a sweat. - Garythesnail
It is taking me days to beat this guy! He keeps on making barriers after every turn!
I laugh at how you guys fail on the EASIEST BOSSES EVER! seriously grodus? Come on!
Guys he's not that hard I admit the first time I died but the second time I won easily. Once you learn how to gaurd/supergaurd him he's very easy. - TaylorD45331 Comment
OP. Nothing else. A minimum of 27 damage per turn, this is easy death. Luckily this is optional. You face him by losing in one of Bowser's Castle's puzzles.
Anyone who doesn't vote this hasn't played this battle
This was definitely a very challenging boss to beat. My friend kept jumping in front of the T.V. and I ended up having to fight them. I was not prepared, I lost all my life shrooms and repel gels. Definitely a fun yet extreme fight.
They just made this boss fight as an alternate game over screen.5 Comments
This is the only boss I actually died to. (Use his to hit him repeatedly and to avoid his attacks, but don't attack with how when this boss has 1 up left, and there are no tuff puffs; or else the game will crash.)
The most annoying part about this boss is when he's down to 6 hp, he makes an earth quake causing 15 damage! I use the berry's but the tuff puffs keep getting me below 15 hp. Hardest boss in Paper Mario. (But I still need too fight The Crystal King. )
This boss is a pain. More tuff puffs more quicker you recieve damage. I'm still stuck on him
Hardest boss in the game other than Bowser4 Comments
HELL NO NEVER FIGHTING THIS GUY AGAIN!
With 400 HP Total and attack of 10, this baddie will probably kill you. Dark Bowser's Attack is 20! The worst part is you have to do the entire pit of 100 Trials Again if you die on this boss. - Chris108beck
Super hard and the culmination of the 100 Trials, Shadoo is nearly impossible to beat without Bowser's help. The perks of beating him, though, are pretty sweet, like infinite 3-D. You also get crazy bragging rights.
All I can say is that he is hard as heck.6 Comments
If you use Luigi, it's not too hard. But with anyone else, I wish you luck. - Garythesnail
You gotta hit like 10 times! The Wrackles don't help eihter. - Chris108beck
It's always worth persistence, though.
Also, Leslie Swan is STILL a great voice for Princess Peach, unlike Jen Taylor (back in old times) & Samantha Kelly & even Tracey Moore, Jeannie Elias & even Mami Yasuke who all voice (d) Princess Peach terribly.
Nonetheless, Super Paper Mario is the best Paper Mario game ever!
This boss I think it's a girl like hooktail and is hard as count bleck. - Sullypwnz2 Comments
God this brings back 2 years of frustration. The ice beam had finished me every time, never ever managed to beat him until 2011.
I know! Good theme though.
I could never time the ice beam block right, and the crystal king ALWAYS healed literally the moment I got one of my attacks in
Defeat using star storm1 Comment
He can be taken out easliy if you have 9 or 10 power rushes, mega rush, simpleifier, and power bounce. (Note you have to have 5 hp or lower for this to work). So he's really easy.
Better hope you have defend pluses, have a good guard/superguard, or have hp over 30 once crump launches his cannons. It does 30 damage!
It may sound very weird, ut I am a raw hater of PMTTYD anyways.
Their health and attack strength is greatly increased, and the fact that Doopliss can copy your partners is pretty tough. Especially if he copies Bobbery... - Garythesnail
This is the only paper mario game I have played and I haven't beaten the pits yet.
Super dimentio looks cool but scary, scary and very scary
Although It Wasn't As Hard As The Shadow Queen. But It Was Still A Difficult Boss.
If you use bowser this boss is very easy4 Comments
My favorite Mario character! Gloomtail is undeniably hard as one of the Chapter 8 Bosses in The Thousand Year Door (wow I made a pun). He has 80 HP, access to most attacks he shares with Hooktail and Bonetail, such as their Stomp and Bite attacks but he has his own breaths and 1 different attack only he can use. He has Poison Breath, and his charged up breath move is his signature move and one of the strongest boss attacks in the game if not the strongest. Megabreath. His secret move he has that none of the other 2 dragons have is his Earthquake attack which is what makes him really unique. Its basically like Magnus Von Grapple 1.0's Earthquake attack where it penetrates your defense, but Gloomtail doesn't bang his feet and arms on the floor like crazy to do the attack. Instead, he jumps up, and when he lands back down it triggers the attack.
Used all my items (I'm stupid for that) I didn't know that the shadow queen was in this game.
His basic attack and charged attack are more powerful than the SHADOW QUEEN'S, he also has the third highest hp in the game
Gloomtail Is Meh In Difficulty In My Opinion.
I beat Shadoo first try. This guy? I'll pass, I think I'd rather defeat all four of Shadoo's forms simultaneously.
The beginning is a little challenging, but after that it turns easy
Hated having to fight brobot
It is 10 times easier than brobot 12 Comments
I did not know this boss was coming in chapter 6, it scared the living life out of me.
This boss took 6 tries for me - dinosaur
Hard as hell until you buy tons of thunder rage from the shop and OHKO its tentacles
SHUT UP THIS GAME IS GOOD!
Grodus was actually pretty underwhelming to me, but this fight was where it really kicked up. I reccomend taking out Kammy Koopa before even bothering with Bowser. - Garythesnail
Man, this game is awful!
Used all my ultra shrooms on this boss, it was my first attempt though, I did beat him on my first try.
He wasn't too bad. Vivian's Fiery Jinx move got the job done pretty well. - Garythesnail
It was very easy when you can easily take down one of his forms in one turn, if you use power lift and some multi hit moves, along with a power plus or 2
I hate Cortez! Man, that dude is annoying! I am a raw hater of The Thousand Year Door anyway. Shouldn't this game be called "Paper Mario: The Millenium Old Door" anyways? Anyways, Super Paper Mario rocks!
How is Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door better than Super Paper Mario?!3 Comments
Yes she is the hardest in super paper MARIO but not the series and people think she's creepy True but scarier Then you think
She is quite challenging because you need to hit the head which is quite high
That whole thing where she turns into a spider and her head spins around is just so creepy. But the boss is hard too lol
Well, I can finish this difficult boss in no time & Super Paper Mario is the best Paper Mario game ever!8 Comments
You end up wasting all your coins on special stickers then find out after he heals and your like I wasted all my stickers on stage one AHH
The bosses in this awful game were like vacuums: You use ALL of your stickers! This guy is no exception.
This games bosses suck they all take away your stickers and you also do nothing else
99 health and a combo attack that does 18 (! ) damage. Please bring some Life Shrooms. - computerfan0
Why is this not higher...
Very difficult boss
This guy's pretty hard, since you can hardly go anywhere on screen without getting hurt. Bowser helps immensely, however. - Garythesnail
Literally couldn't pass this fight as a kid, and it was my favorite back then. Not to mention, the boss himself, and the them and cool as hell
He is the suck
This took me like four days! And what I thougt I beat him, his second form appeared! I screamed!2 Comments
6 defense, 70 HP, takes your partner out for 3 turns, immediately gets back up and attacks after you flip him, and finally can do 10 damage.
Unlike any other boss in this list if you don't know the correct strategy, you will lose.
In short less of a boss, more of a puzzle. The precursor to Stick Star and Color Splash.
This guy is a NIGHTMARE. Be sure to use Lullaby if you want to stand a chance!
I beat him no problem using Lullaby. And you can just pay 100 coins to go past him (I had 101). - computerfan0
Ridiculous defense, 70 hp, and insane power
Stratagy for beating Kent C. Koopa: use lullaby every time he wakes up with mario, and just keep attacking. use FP attacks to go faster, or just use normal attacks to save FP. use mario to focus so you can always lullaby.
Anti guy unit is tougher but in this it is only 1 not 3 and in this if you give anti guy a lemon you don't have to fight him but I would not be any fun
How is he not ranked harder
His attacks are absolutely devastating. I loved this fight, but it was hard!
Took me 3 tries to beat, NO OTHER BOSS in this game took me that many tries, not even Cortez.
Grubba took forever to beat
If you beat him fast, he's pretty easy.
Take your time, however, and he's going to be using your body to wipe up the blood of all the other wrestlers in the Glitz pit. - Garythesnail
Not that hard. I grunt whenever I ge thit but I've never lost to him. Hooktail actually beat me. - HeavyDonkeyKong
I would have lost but both the baby bloopers missed when I was at 1 HP and the big blooper charged. I killed him on the next turn, though. - computerfan0
So fun, I want to play the fight AGAIN AND AGAIN
So do I! Well, you are in luck! Super Paper Mario is unquestionably the best Paper Mario game in the universe as well as the best Mario RPG ever! Man, I love Brobot.
One of my favorite bosses, if not my favorite in the series. - Garythesnail
This should be higher
This is not a boss...?
I died like 5 times.
I know this is surprising, But this took me like 10 tries to beat. IT'S JUST THE SHY SQUAD, STILT GUYS, AND THE SHY STACK REALLY WEAKEN YOU! That's WHY I SAY THIS BOSS IS HARD.
The general of all Shy Guys, why? Maybe we'll find out when the shy guy's masks are taken off
He is to easy for a boss
Oh no, Luigi in a mask. How intimidating... - Garythesnail
It was very hard to beat him. Took me like 20 times to beat him. I had like no items left once I beat him.
This stupid chameleon and his camera gave me so much trouble in my Super Paper Mario Days
It's kind of annoying to jump in the right place when he pops up. - Garythesnail
And he can return in chapter 8...1 Comment
Count bleck is super paper Mario! Not paper Mario
Super Paper Mario & Paper Mario both tie to be the best paper Mario games ever! And I love Count Bleck!
Why isn't this higher he is the final boss in SUPER PAPER Mario, not paper Mario. But this needs to be higher
Super Dimentio is the final boss
His attacks are fast and unpredictable, and he has a good amount of strength and HP. - Garythesnail
Took About 5 Tries since I was doing a no item run..3.
When I first fought this boss I had no idea how to get past his poison attack I ended up using all my things!
They are awesome for sure
In one Hooktail battle video, the person playing the game forgot to put on the badge. So the person had a hard time beating him.
She made me rage like crazy
She hates things beginning with "cr" and ending with "icket". - computerfan0
Ya mean Crystal king? Cause this is not adventure time
Of the reasons that he is hard is because he heals 20 HP twice he can use double team and ice beam
I love this guy.He's so mystical and magical.I love his attacks
This has got to be the hardest boss (so far). I had no idea for the first couple of times that I had to use the fishhook sticker WHILE it was in the water. Figured it out after like the 3rd or 4th time fighting it. Kept having to go back and get the fishhook again and again.
What!? He's a piece of cake! Use luigi and high jump his head and he's dead in no time
Lamest boss ever... - Garythesnail
Really? This is like killing 2 Goomba Kings but only one can attack at a time! - computerfan0
If you don't have the right stickers (Clone Jump Flip Flops are what you really need) this beast will screw you up, and even if at do beat him first try, you probably used all your good stickers you planned to beat Bowser with!
Just slap him in the face with the flip-flops...it's not too hard, to be honest. Bowser is another story, however he's only difficult due to having to backtrack to get needed equipment. - Garythesnail
Literally just putting him on here cause nobody else has. Can be a tough fight if you go in unprepared for the chomps though
My favorite Parer Mario color splash boss
I'm talking about the fight he takes your body he has 4 of your part partners
