Top Ten Hardest Mario Enemies

The Top Ten Hardest Mario Enemies

1 Hammer Bros.

I hate these things. You dodge a hammer then jump on one thinking you got 'em, but they barely managed another hammer to kill you. In general very annoying, especially when spammed in Mario Maker (technically applies for every enemy ever, but you get my point). Sometimes they only throw 1 hammer, and another moment they throw 2. If you encounter one deal with it ASAP. - Qryzx

I just know I'm going to die when I see these - wolphert

Ugh, they are so unpredictable. Especially in the original Super Mario Bros. where it would be almost next to impossible to dodge them.

In Super Mario Bros for the NES, the Hammer Bros throw several hammers, trying to trap you. I hate them in that game

2 Lakitu Lakitu, known in Japan as Jugem, is a fictional flying character in the Mario franchise. Created by Shigeru Miyamoto, it first appeared in the Nintendo Entertainment System video game Super Mario Bros., where it dropped enemies called Spinies on the stage.

forget about coins or points... JUST GET TO THE END! - munkee_linc97

It's literally IMPOSSIBLE to kill these guys unless you're on high ground. That is why they're so scary!

Unless you have ANY high ground, there is no chance anyone is going to defeat him! His surge of Spinies are as deadly as three Hammer Bros attacking at once!

Run run run! These guys drive me crazy. "Okay no enemies. Wait where did that guy come from. Spikes!

3 Fire Bros.

It's the hardest out of boomerang bros, hammer bros, and fire bros because you can't climb up stairs when they're at the top.

And of all the Koopa Bros, Sledge Bro wasn't here?

They're The Most Dangerous Of The Bros


4 Chain Chomp

If you ground pound them, they will scape and run around

Ree I hate these things there the worst

Now hears wut I think, if you talking about Mario 64 chomps this would have been number 1 but your probly think of Mario bros wii

5 Boo

These guys are nearly impossible to kill. They freak me out, yet I love them. Anyway, they just slowly stalk you and torment you in their house. It's terrible, haha. The only way you can kill them is with a star, which I only rarely find in haunted houses. What's worse is the giant boos. When I see those guys I'm like, now I just gotta run! In Mario galaxy, when you eat a boo mushroom, its great to be a boo, but when a female one sees you an touches you, your dead meat cause you turn into mario again. Just extremely annoying. - dragonfly99

It's impossible to kill these guys unless you have an almost impossible to get star! I really hated these guys in super Mario bros.

At least we got to punch them in the side in Super Mario 64.

On the subject of invincible enemies, what about Black Nippers? (They're technically tiles, but can never be destroyed on normal conditions.)

You just can't kill these dudes unless you get a FREAKIN STAR! THE DUDES ARE A PAIN IN THE ASS!

6 Boomerang Bros.

No sometimes it's to easy to dodge they suck sometimes!

7 The Sun

Granted I was like 6 the last time we faced off, but I remember being absolutely obliterated by this guy. While he wasn't hard to avoid by himself, all the other enemies plus quicksand and gaps to jump. Who was the jerk who came up with this guy?

Hardest Bloomin' enemy I have faced on any game I have ever played. - maethordhinen

Not the creepiest sun. (That goes to the sun in teletubbies)

The Mario sun is actually kind of cool. The scariest is the Teletubbies one.

This is a tricky enemy!

8 Thwomp

I'm so glad they made super Mario maker because you can protect yourself from these by putting a shell (if shot off a cannon and are no enemies in shells and the shell falls on you) on the head and they just bounce off

you just can not kill the things

Naw, just run and you'll be safe. - TheYoshiOverlord

Almost impossible, only killed with a star

9 Grand Goomba

Tell me why this is here? - TheYoshiOverlord

Totally agree. It's just a bigger version of the world's second-most useless enemy (and the most useless is just a smaller version of that) - computerfan0

Goombas are already annoying but this guy is super annoying

10 Dry Bones Dry Bones is a common enemy species in the Super Mario series of video games since „Super Mario Bros. 3“ (1988). After his first debut as a playable character in „Mario Superstar Baseball“ (2005), he became a fan-favorite and also got playable in other spin-offs of the Mario series.

These things are so annoying just saying even if you kill them they come back I play dry bones in mario kart every time

They keep getting back up even if they, re in the lava

Thank goodness we got the Ice Flower and the Penguin Suit in New Super Mario Bros. Oh, the power.

I know. There so annoying!

The Contenders

11 Goomba Goombas, known in Japan as Kuribo, are a species of sentient mushrooms from Nintendo's Mario franchise.

Jump on them! Duh!

Laugh out loud. Should be #1.

The most annoying enemy in Mario games

Almost all of us got killed by one

12 Bowser Bowser is the main antagonist of the Mario Bros. Franchise. From kidnapping Princess Peach to simply destroying a fun game between Mario and Friends in the Mario Party spinoff series, this king of the Koopas has set up a certain hatred towards himself amongst the large cast of Mario Characters. He first more.

Have you even played some of the games, such as Galaxy 2? Bowser is one of the most famous villains of all times, but I sometimes question Nintendo for designing some of his battles.

Come on! The final boss in most games!

Bowser is a boss not an enemy

He is so hard to defeat

13 Boohemoth

Boohemoth should be number 1! He is extremely sneaky and indestructible. I like how he looks because of its chubby cheeks and his size is colossal. He is the largest boo in the boo family. In new super Mario bros 2, he always crushes me! I think he is the best Mario enemy ever created!

Boohemoth should be number one! He is the only Mario enemy created that is completely invincible.If you stare at him too long he will come after you again. Not even King Boo can do that! He a is so set aside from other enemies. There is no way to kill him. Also he is very rare and hard to get away from. He should be king! He is just the greatest Mario villain ever.

When I get squished between a Boohemoth and a wall, I die! He is also indestructible, but he is one of my favorite Mario characters.

Very rare and tough! They are like a hundred times larger than a normal Goomba!

14 Koopa Paratroopa

They are bounceing freaks I hate them because they are so annony

15 Piranha Plant

Most of this list is inaccurate actually. - TheYoshiOverlord

So annoying every time I jump on a pipe

You can't jump on them

16 Chargin' Chuck
17 Amazy Dayzee

Holy Crap! She is so annoying how she can put you to sleep, hurt you REAL bad and run away from you! The only upside is how she can be valuable. - l9me

I really hate em

She puts us to sleep, hurts us than runs away! Cheeky

OK, how are boos harder than this, it has the most powerful attack in Paper Mario

18 Spike

At least fishy boopkins don't do thst

These guys are annoying. They throw spiked balls at you from a high platform or a flying block so they move around. Those spikes are big so it is hard to jump at the last minute. You must also speed run from the stone Spike. They throw spike balls from the above.

19 Spiny

Guys come on you can't even get a power up to defeat these guys there indestructible but to make it worse people on clouds throw them at you you just can't survive spinys you just die - Marioman

Spiny is what makes lakitu so powerful

Actually, most power-ups, including the Fire Flower, can kill a Spiny, they're technically Goombas that can't be stomped on.

I think you're confusing it for the kind with one needle, which is immune to most power-ups, like a Buzzy Beetle, and can't be jumped on, except these things aren't spawned by any kind of Lakitu.

20 Culex

Yes he is ridiculously hard but he isn't a regular enemy, he is a BOSS so he does not count

WHAT! Don't say you don't remember him. Culex is an optional boss is Super Mario RPG Legend of the Seven Stars, he has Four Elemental Crystals, that all have high defense and attack, and altogether they have about 20,000 HP. It has even HP than both forms of Smithy.

21 Kamek Kamek is a common enemy in the Mario Bros. Franchise. He usually appears in New Super Mario Bros. Games, Super Mario Bros. Games, or other similar games. He also appears in spinoff titles, like Mario Party, in which he is not a playable character but creates an obstacle for the players on their way more.

He wasn't in this list because he isn't a ENEMY. he's a BOSS.

Why isn't Kamek in this list? He's AWESOME. And he's very hard to beat...look at Super Mario Bros. Wii and U. You must run and run for to catch him...

Kamek is so hard because when you jump he disapeers.

Is that Cody from SuperMarioLogan?

22 Fawful Fawful, known in Japan as Gerakobits, is a fictional character appearing in the Mario & Luigi series of role-playing video games developed by AlphaDream.

Mario and luigi bosses?! Why isn't anyone see that they have so much health and can heal themselves. This one is so annoying and in Bowsers inside story, he's very hard and ( I'm talking about him with half dark power) he can heal himself with his vacuum so you have to suck it in then defeat him. Anyone else from these games,POST IT please! Cause they are hard!

23 Cheep Chomp

This thing can Instantly kill you even if you have super star!

They Eat The Player

24 Blooper Bloopers (Often Referred To Bloobers Until Paper Mario, Though Blooper was in use beforehand) are Squid-Like creatures that are found in the ocean. They made their first appearance in Super Mario Bros., and various kinds of them have appeared in the Mario games since, normally as enemies. Mario Party more.
25 Chomp Shark

If you see these things you're only choice is to run! I mean who the hell came up with these guys!

While they are not too hard to get away from but doing so and collecting red coins are a challenge

26 Wendy

Wendy in all games, (especially smb3) is unique. First of all, her attack is very intense, but she also has different motion jump and spell strategies, which I find hard to defeat.

Sends Dry Fish at you and feel scared because she's weak - NOT ANYMORE! Screw Hammer Bro. - spongebobsv1998890

Who voted for this on the list? Sure in SMB3, she was one of the only Koopalings with a different attack, but in the modern era, sure, she was annoying when she flooded the stage, making her invincible to the stomp, other Koopalings were usually tougher, especially Roy and Morton.

27 Bone Piranha Plant

These guy where in new super Mario bros 2

Also known as a mixture between a Buzzy Beetle and a Piranha Plant.
Why did I not say Dry Bones? Dry Bones is immune to much more stuff than a simple fireball.

Not Even Fire Mario Can Hurt Them! 😕

28 King Bill

You cannot defeat it all you can do is run away

These should be mario maker 2

29 Whomp
30 Fishin' Boo

Hey, free 1-UPs here!

31 Anti Guys

What only 30 them and amaze dayzees are ridiculously overpowered enemies, in fact they are the hardest in the paper Mario series

They are overpowered, but they give you lots of expirence

32 Phanto

Oh look a key!
What is that he's coming for me!

33 Ice Bros.

These can FREEZE you!

34 Spiny Buzzy Beatle

You can't jump on these dudes and that's no far

35 Back Cursya

If you even try to hit, or jump on it. You'd be instantly sent back to Flipside, The main hub world of Super Paper Mario. - Chris108beck

Imagine if you are in the pit of 100 trials, and you are on level 99, and you are about to go to level 100, and you fall down a platform, and you accidently toch one and go back to flipside and have to do it all over again. Good thing they are not in the pit of 100 trials

36 Dark Koopatrol

High hp attacks do 5 damage and 2 defense not to mention that you cannot stomp on him

37 Sunnycide

Impossible! Have hit him with boulder. Not dying!

38 Panser
39 Ack - Donkey Kong Country Returns
40 Blurp - Mario & Luigi Super Mario Saga
41 Sharkbone - Mario & Luigi Superstar Saga
42 Big Cheep Cheep

Is this Big Bertha your trying to talk about? If it is I'm with you. You can't kill him, he just swims up to you and gobbles your face

Just try's to eat you.

Big Bertha spawned baby Cheep Cheep to attack you, Boss Bass was the one who couldn't, constantly respawned, and ate Mario more frequently than Big Bertha, even as a statue using the Tanooki Suit..

Big Bertha and Boss Bass are killable with most powerups, such as the Super Leaf, or with blocks and shells, but Boss Bass will immediately respawn after being defeated, while Big Bertha cannot.

43 Meowser

God damn Bowser uses 3 power ups that you can use the cherry one and the cat one

44 Sumo Bro
45 Thwimp

Oh my god. they're even harder than a Spiny!

Every time I see them I know I'll lose my powerup.


46 Lava Bubbles

He is so annoying. He even jumping every where

47 Podoboos

Those pesky lava bubble things that jump up at the wrong moment every single time - LoneShadow379

48 Fuzzy - Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island

"Touch Fuzzy, get Dizzy."
Lesson learned kiddies - Don't do drugs.

You touch one, you get high and your controls are changed greatly, causing you to easily die, and just wait for the high effects to go away.


49 Bullies (Super Mario 64)


50 Ludwig

I added him because he is very very tough
