Top 10 Hardest The Legend of Zelda Bosses

The Top Ten

Thunderblight Ganon (Breath of the Wild)

Although he has weaker stats than calamity ganon, you fight him a lot earlier, so is probably harder

Warning: DO NOT GO FOR VAH NABORIS FIRST! The hardest boss in the game and the hardest legend of zelda boss that I have beaten. And I have beaten some of the top five on this list and ganondorf twilight princess is not hard (fishing rod). Koloktos, I beat on my seventh try, but thunderblight ganon took me at least 30 tries (and I beat calamity ganon on the first try). And maz koshia may have moves harder to avoid, but by the time you reach him, you will have many skills. I do admit that I only beat ocarina of time through glitch and I have not played majora's mask so I do not know how hard bongo bongo or gyorg is. But I have beaten the original game, a link to the past, link's adventure, spirit tracks, phantom hourglass, oracle of ages, breath of the wild, link's awakening, skyward sword, twilight princess, wind waker, and a few others.

Hardest Zelda boss by far and above. Was stuck on it for hours.

I hate this guy

Koloktos (Skyward Sword)

I hate this boss so much. He has too many arms and is actually one of the few bosses to try and protect his weak spot.

Koloktos was Harder than bongo bongo and ganondorf of twilight princess

This is one hardest boss

Best boss battle and hardest in the games

Moldorm (A Link to the Past)

This was by far the hardest boss. If there are any oldschool Zelda gamers, they will remember this giant worm of extreme annoyance.

It moves very fast! - Pansage654

Vaati Transfigured (Minish Cap)
Gygorg (Majora's Mask)

This boss was such a jerk. I died several times and getting back to him in the Great Bay Temple was torture.

While GYORG (Not Gygorg) is a difficult boss, I never found him to be too much of a pain. I voted for him because he was on this list and all of the other ones were easy. To be fair, I haven't gotten to Koloktos yet in Skyward Sword.

So hard and fiddly

fack dat fish

Thunderbird (Zelda II)

Aside from it's erratic attack patterns, you also have to conserve magic on your way to getting to this boss so you can use thunder in order to even damage him. - MDbs

This deserves way higher. - gakiguru

Calamity Ganon (Breath of the Wild)

I actually liked that you cannot really play after you beat him, because it allows you to fight him over and over and you can ever choose to have limited equipment

This boss is really hard to beat and since there is the option to not get the master sword, you can do this without the master sword, but I don't recommend it. He's super cool but a tough boss to beat.

So. Easy.

SO MANY WEAPONS!

Bongo Bongo (Ocarina of Time)

Seriously, I can't be the only one who had trouble with this guy!
Moldorm was much easier, for me at least!

People say this is one of the easiest battles in the game, but for me, honestly, the easiest boss in OOT was Morpha.
But still, I envy those who say it's easy, because to me, it just ISN'T!

Bongo bongo is one of the easiest one yet so far

This guy took me and my dad 14 times to beat

Twinrova (Ocarina of Time)

Twinrova is the hardest boss to defeat for sure.

fun but frustrating

Ganondorf (Twilight Princess) Ganon (Referred to as Ganondorf in human form) is a fictional character and the central antagonist of Nintendo's Legend of Zelda series. He is a power-hungry Gerudo who possesses the Triforce of Power and aims to conquer Hyrule with the remaining Triforce parts.

Heh. He's not that hard to beat!

Even though in my opinion, he's not too hard, he has too many phases.

The Contenders

Zant (Twilight Princess) Zant is the usurper king of twilight and is the main villain of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess.

Zant was harder than Bongo Bongo, Bongo Bongo was a piece of cake for me.

Dark Link (Zelda II)

I've beaten Dark Link 5 times the real way, and he is much harder than the others.

Takes forever

This should be way higher.

Link vs Link, it is all about luck.

Demise (Skyward Sword)

When he gets to the stage where you have to charge your sword with lightning. he always seems to know when I'm trying to charge my sword and then he gives me a blow to the head.

Great boss unlike The imprisoned

Ganon (Ocarina of Time)

Ran out of magic a lot

NOOB! This boss was easy!

Had to use a restore point on vc

Onox (Oracle of Seasons)

Wolf Sigma clone

Annoying boss in the games of zelda

I hate that thing

Silver Lynel (Breath of the Wild)

I did a no damage fight against a sword lynel but the club ones are so annoying because they are harder to perfect dodge

Why they are harder than the final boss? And why they have only a few moves?

I’ve been farming them for star fragments. I once ran into one for the first time and thought it was a white maned lynel, which I could have handled. It did not go well for link

Especially if it's wielding a club

Levias (Skyward Sword)

Only hard because of a terrible flight controls - Murphdog405

First loft wings then bilocyte

Ganondorf (Wind Waker) Ganon (Referred to as Ganondorf in human form) is a fictional character and the central antagonist of Nintendo's Legend of Zelda series. He is a power-hungry Gerudo who possesses the Triforce of Power and aims to conquer Hyrule with the remaining Triforce parts.
Majora's Mask (The Legend of Zelda Majora's Mask)

This boss is random and infuriating and it's all up to RNG. Hardest zelda boss by far let alone final boss

It is only at this spot because of the stupid firce dietys mask. With out it you will be DEAD

defenatily the hardest

Twinmold (Majoras Mask 3D)

The second phase and Link's slow movement is the reason this fight is hard - MDbs

I hate how slow you are and it recuires magic

This thing doesn’t die

Phantom Ganon (Ocarina of Time)

This is inaccurate - this boss is EASY - gakiguru

The Imprisoned (Skyward Sword)

3 times you fight him... So... Annoying

Big Octo (Ocarina of Time)

I think that he might be Bellum.

Monk Maz Koshia (Breath of the Wild)

I kinda feel bad for people who fought him before ganon because he is much harder and by far the best botw boss and potentially the best boss in any Zelda game. Aside from thunderblight he was the only botw boss dat killed me

He’s probably my favorite of any tloz boss and is really fun to fight. You will most likely die many times if you do not know what you are up against

Yuga and Ganon (A Link Between Worlds)

beat him first try but still hard

so hard
