Hardest Cuphead Bosses


The Top Ten

1 King Dice King Dice

The problem with king dice is that he's entirely chance based. You need to parry the die at just the right time to defeat him, or all your progress will get nuked. - Jackamalio

Actually you can parry at the right time to land the exact amount you want, still doesn't make the fight easier though. - GreninjaGuy

I'm stuck on this level


He’s mr. King die, he’s the hardest in the land

2 The Devil The Devil

He is the devil, the devil himself... - mewtwo1

I hear a lot of people say the Devil is easy.
I say he’s a ’ cheater.
His first phase is very unpredictable and the imps at the wrong place at the wrong time can mess your funky flow.
His second phase is a little easier. Just. Parry. The bomb. Third phase is, in a word, hectic. Fourth phase is easy in concept, but in reality...
But you get the point. The Devil is hard. enough said.

3 Dr. Kahl's Robot Dr. Kahl's Robot

Should be in top three!

4 Grim Matchstick Grim Matchstick

RNG platforms colored WHITE on a WHITE background with fireballs that jump to random locations, fire bubbles that split when shot, and a flamethrower that takes up half the screen. Even with the lobber, this guy is a HUGE pain to knockout. Not only the hardest boss of this game, but one of the hardest bosses of ALL video games.

Basically the only way you can win is with the lob shot. And even then it's still very hard.

Definitely Grim

I think this boss was a bit easy the only hard part is the final phase otherwise it'd be a isle 1 boss

5 Phantom Express Phantom Express

Really hard have died 126 times on him time to give it another go

If you’re bad at the parry mechanic, which this ENTIRE fight is based around, then this fight WILL be a struggle.

Sans is there, so you’re bound to have a bad time.

6 Rumor Honeybottoms

Just the scrolling that's hard

This boss took me forever! For some reason Dr Kahl and Phantom Express were extremely easy for me. - MayorOfStringCheese

The only hard boss that is an insect. This and Turantutor from Yokai Watch.

7 Beppi The Clown Beppi The Clown

Every phase is a nightmare. You need a lot of luck and even then it's still hard to beat this one. This is why I'm afraid of clowns.

8 Cala Maria Cala Maria

I wish that I knew only her head was the weak point.

9 Wally Warbles Wally Warbles

Wally is bang on in the right spot


10 Djimmi The Great Djimmi The Great

It's possible to get stuck behind the pillars, and that is NOT a pretty picture. :/

Regular is hard enough if you’re unlucky, I’m actually going to say he’s far worse than Wally Warbles on Expert. You should’ve know Wally Warbles seemed impossible on Expert. But his moves can be learnt somehow, once you get used to it, it wasn’t all that bad... Djimmi however 1st phase and Last is based on pure luck, he has a total of 5 phases, 5! 4th phase is bullet hell with his hat as a distraction. S ranking him is definitely a bigger achievement than S ranking Wally Warbles...

The Contenders

11 Werner Werman Werner Werman
12 Cagney Carnation Cagney Carnation

This boss has memorization

13 Captain Brineybeard Captain Brineybeard
14 Baroness Von Bon Bon

Me and my brother died more than 170 times on her! For reference, we died on Beppi the Clown only 7 times!

15 Hilda Berg Hilda Berg
16 Ribby and Croaks
17 Goopy Le Grande Goopy Le Grande

Biggest noob trap in the whole game - thunderstar1124

Hardest Boss In The Game


18 Sally Stageplay

20 Honey Bottoms
