Top 10 Hardest Castlevania BossesWe all know the Castlevania series had some pretty intense bosses... now they've been narrowed down to 10. This is... The Top 10 Hardest Castlevania Bosses.
The Top Ten
Like the rest of the game, you NEED to play this in an extremely conservative fashion. It's a battle of attrition, not outright force. You only get a few frames to hit his head for the first form, however his attacks are quite easy to avoid. The second form is ridiculously hard, unless you saved your hearts and knock off a bunch of his health with item crashes.
Oh... my... god... this battle is INSANELY HARD! Not only does he take like thirty million hits, he turns into a devil wearing a speedo, and most of his attacks are almost IMPOSSIBLE to dodge! I know he can be beaten with patience but... wow... just, wow...
This has to be the most badly designed boss battle of all time. Each hit knocks you off a platform, Dracula has way too much health, and the only reliable way of beating him is the most boring. Not to mention the second form after taking forever on the first.
Could not beat this until I was 18, I played this first when I was 7. He is HAAARD.V 2 Comments
Well, dang. This guy is notorious for being impossible. And it's almost true. I beat him TWICE in my lifetime, and each time I was about to die. 4 hits, you're dead. But even worse, the hallway before him is just brutal! 2 Knights throwing axes at 2 altitudes while unlimited Medusa Heads are pouring in hell-bent on killing you! Also the Knights take 9 hits, and Death is none the less.
Well...our boy manny here has sure moved up in the world. THEY EVEN GOT HIM BOOMERANG SYTHES COMPLETE WITH AN ADDED MISSILE TARGETING SYSTEM.
Gotta say...he's the most disgusting boss I think I have fought in ANY game. And I still haven't beaten him. Don't play castlevania. You'll end up more frustrated than when you came in.
He's pretty easy with holy water
Complete BS man. I can beat him now maybe 20% of the time. But that's just from straight spamming triple shot cross and avoiding the scythes. Hardest boss everV 1 Comment
I began playing this amazing game often at age 6... Took me until age 21 to finally beat it. Enough said!
Dracula is easily the toughest boss in any Castlevania game. I chose the original Castlevania simply because it's the original. - evoxpisces
Very hard and annoying two forms of insane Dracula. You have 4 hits to die, he can take infinite numbers of it. Needs patience and steel nerves to beat him! Hardest boss of all Castlevanias in my opinion...
I think all of you know what I'm talking about right here, so I won't explain. Just OH MYY GGGOODD!
This guy is an early boss. So he has really high health, you have low, his attacks are strong, yours aren't. He's a giant crab in a lighthouse, you aren't. But the other nail that seals the coffin is the maximum healing items you could POSSIBLY have is 3 beef jerkys, and those heal 29 health. when I finally got him to the top of the lighthous and brought that spike-rimmed elevator crashing down on him and crushed him on the bottom, I was like "Heck yes! He got what was coming to him. "
I don't understand why no one likes this guy, he's badass, has an interesting stage on which you fight him, and is really not that hard. - kempokid
I have been trying for weeks and can't get by him!
All YOU NEED IS MACIR AND TORPOR TO DEFEAT IT. and make sure you watch its pattern.
You can dodge the flame pillars in his first form by keeping your distance. You wanna have about half the screen between you and him at all times, until the first 2 flames come up. Then get as close as you have to be to hit him, nail him once or twice, and start moving again. If you stick to doing that you should be able to take out his first form without taking damage, or at least minimizing it. Second form is easy, just attack like crazy and throw axes (which you can get at the stairs just before the pendulum room on the way here). Third form, stay to the far right, on the 3rd and 4th blocks away from the wall, jumping and throwing midair axes while dodging his lasers by walking over to the wall. If you're careful you should be fine.
Dracula is hard, but he's all about playing it safe. Worry more about preventing damage than dealing it and he's much more manageable.
You have to make it all the way through the stage! Your telling me I have to make all the way through the stage without any continues or power-ups?
You do get a checkpoint in the room before the pendulums (though you lose it if you Game Over). This fight is still extremely difficult, though.
First, two towers come up trapping you while another one comes up in the middle! How are you supposed to dodge that?
Okay... ugh... THESE GUYS ARE INSANE! They just bombard you with constant attacks. Dracula teleports and shoots fireballs in a 3 5 3 order, then teleports and fires 7 dark infernos at 2 levels, while Death chases you from above and comes flying down in a gigantic ball of firey darkness. Then, when they're dead and you're out of potions, Dracula has a true form. He has four attacks. Shooting in an ark and slamming the ground for an almost instant kill, flying on the top of the screen for another almost instant kill, creating an insane rain of fireballs as he's doing move one, and finally moving to the background to crush the heroes with his wing for an actual instant kill.
This guy makes a return! But, he's hard as heck. Losing limbs, unlimited flies flying at you... strong attacks... I could go on and on, but you wouldn't understand. Pick up a copy, get that far, and see for yourself.
Uhh, I don't think Beezlebub is in Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow.
In Dawn of Sorrow, he is actually called abaddon - kempokid
If you are referring to FRANKENSTEIN then yes, I agree! Very tough.
Hope you brought your holy water. Didn't bring it? Hope you're at full health and have mad jump control.
These guys took a lot of abuse, and their attacks were almost undodgeable. 6 hits, you're out. But there is a whole level with no checkpoints before them, and that one part where the stage keeps moving up and Knights and Bone Soldiers keep coming up out of nowhere, there are tons of falling blocks and the only enemies even more annoying than the Medusa Heads are there. Plus right before the boss you fight respawning Mummies.
The worst part about this boss? This is only the second of FOUR that you fight in this level. Also, the level's WAY too long.
Wow... I have have beaten him 3/150 tries in my entire life.
Unless you use Sypha's electric spell, this guy's ridiculous. Plus, the area you have to get through to reach him is just as difficult.
Okay, this guy takes a lot of abuse and has no pattern! He flys around the room, and you can only hit his head, so you're gonna get hit by a frontal assault, and then fly back into a hole. And there are 3 White Dragons before him, low whip upgrades, and low hearts, and also no health recovery.
This boss is just your typical pushover AND a controller-thrower combined!
All you really gotta do is keep him at whip-length and hit-and-fade. He'll jump back up after he's hit most of the fight and after that it'st just a matter of maintaining distance and dishing out as much hurt as you can.
This boss was maddening, took me so many attempts, so many.
Three words: Worst. Hitbox. Ever.V 2 Comments
This boss was very tough since you have to fight two enemies at once and their both going crazy. But if you get stuck on this my best advice is the crucifix. If you get about 3-5 well thrown crucifix getting several hits on the dragons you will find success.
Although I think Dracula on this game is tougher than these dragons.
If there was only one head with twice the health, this boss would be easier, but much less cool and interesting. - kempokid
Ok so the Adramelech boss before it is also worthy of mention but the dual zombie dragons in this game had me raging.
Very hard boss. Forces you to move through a pattern to be able to do real damage on him and if you manage to get on his back without taking out the crossbows then... Goodluck! On top of that though, He tries to knock you off his back forcing you to start at the beginning of the battle. Most annoying thing though, has to be the crossbows.
Gave me an absolute pain in the ass until I figured out the attack patterns. Forces you to go through a path to kill him, and can kill you easily. Also, the CROSSBOWS.
Well. Name says it all. This (creature/beast/devil) demands maximum respect! And make sure you stock up on as much health/ sacrificial dolls as physically possible. Castlevania lament of innocence. This is not a boss in the usual sense because you're not required to beat him for completion. I loved this game as it is quite intense. No respite on pause menu, if you want power up/health, main weapon, special item, relics item - you have to do it in-play. I am not going to talk about the Forgotten One though, words are wasted on him. Same as about 300lives it took me to clear him in normal mode, let alone CRAZY mode.
Definitely the most challenging boss in the game. Something to note is that he gets a lot harder in hard mode than the other bosses seem to.
This boss has lots of tricks and moves that you may need a few potions to get through him. If you are good this dodging little attacks you will be fine.
You will never see an other boss pull this level of fake-out attacks!
Blackmore is a nightmare. His attacks are hard to predict, and they do a lot of damage, too. If you screw up at any moment, you're prone to injury the next few moments. With all these dark fireballs coming from above and unexpected laser beams, it's a near-impossible task to keep up the rhythm with Blackmore.
Yup... No doubt is this guy a scond last boss... HE IS Crazy!
Ultimate Dracula is what happens when Dracula decides to go Bullet Hell mode on you. There's so much stuff going on screen at once, it's hard to even see what did hit you. Not to mention, he can launch you intto the air and then bombard you with as many attacks as he wants to. AND THERE'S NOTHING YOU CAN DO. There is no pattern, just random attacks coming from all directions. Even his own attacks spawn more random attacks, so good luck trying to play survival with him;you won't last much.
Dracula turns into a Dragon and attacks you with fire dragons and nuclear strikes. Better be all stocked up on pot roasts 'cause you're gonna need them... unfortunately you just fought Renon, Fake Dracula and Real Dracula so...
I HATE THIS BOSS. The level itself is not that hard (despite some sword masters) and is sort of peaceful until you make it to the top, Oh God. The fight starts out with you throwing malphas's eggs back at her which is pretty easy at first. But then when some of the eggs hit the ground malphas's "sons" pop out. Now these enemies would be A LOT easier by themselves but in this battle they are terribly annoying. They breathe fire, block almost everything, and fly. When you finally get malphas down enough she will flash like most bosses leading you to a quick time event loving scene. When this scene is finished you get to attack malphas which sounds pretty easy until one of her godawful sons hits you causing you to miss your chance.
He is so hard to beat. first of all, you fight him right after beating isaac (2nd battle) no chance to heal, secondly he is so damn strong! And I don't even want to talk about how difficult it is to steal from him!
Playing as Alucard didn't make the boss challenging because you could easily have 700 HP due to the leveling system and extreme item bonuses while fighting Dracula. With Richter however, you only get your whip and Richter's moves.
