Top 10 Hardest Sonic Bosses

The Top Ten

1 Death Egg - Sonic the Hedgehog 2

I highly doubt anyone ever beat this boss at the arcade back in the day. I have no clue how you are supposed to beat this without save states. I had to save state over 100 times to beat this boss.

It is pretty hard but thare is labyrinth zone that is harder from sonic 1

I think that the death egg robot is the hardest and most iconic boss in sonic history

Yep, I died 34 times before catching on the Durham of both silver sonic and the death egg

2 The Biolizard - Sonic Adventure 2: Battle

The last phase where you have to float around the orbs is so tense because if you die you have to restart the whole fight all over again

Took me about 4 hours to beat this boss as a kid. This boss is significantly harder than the final boss.

At the first time I did this boss I owned him, literally, but in the second time and so on I got beaten so hard due to his final attack and the water current, you fall in it, you're dead.

If there was a death battle between death egg and biolizard biolizard would crush death egg he's actually harder than the final boss when I fought him I I died so many times I wanted to break my controller

3 Sir Lancelot Returns - Sonic and the Black Knight

This boss is actually harder than the final boss. Still, if you know the strategy, he isn't that hard. It takes a lot of blocking, then when he does a backflip, you hit him 3-5 times with soulsurge.

Lancelot Returns brings the fight back from the beginning of the game with a vengeance. He is much, much stronger in this fight, utilizing Chaos Spear and Chaos Blast whenever you try to attack him. A very challenging boss, but it does become easy when you know how to beat him.

Oh my God I do NOT remember how I beat this. All I remember is that it took me over two years of the the game to actually complete that level

Its really harder than all bosses never expected that shadow have this much power

4 Perfect Dark Gaia - Sonic Unleashed

Yeah before trying this stock up on lives before a game over via bonus temple rooms. Then timing is of the essence. I recommend 8 lives.

Took me over 50 tries as a kid to beat, you have to remember the attack pattern and time it perfectly.

Perfect Dark Gaia is harder than rock. It took me only 2 days but over 500 attempts. It actually took 624 attempts in total. Also, If you run out of lives, You need to go back and The Egg Dragoon and Dark Gaia. In my hard levels, 10000.

Why the hell is the final hazers even in the top ten? He's too damn easy for a final boss but he was fun. Dark Gia on the other hand is really hard and should at least be in the top 5

5 Doomsday Zone - Sonic 3 & Knuckles

I beat it.
With debug.
Insanely hard
You want 70+ rings by the time you see the blue ship.
But yeah I can only beat it like 1 of 50 times without debug to give me rings.

I don't really remember this boss very much, I never actually played this game

This boss is so hard... this was the first Super Sonic boss battle in the franchise. You're constantly slamming into asteroids that can slow you down, and if you don't collect any rings, you're screwed. You then fight Eggman, and you have to lure his missiles that he shoots back to the headpiece. And when you destroy it, you think it's over, but NOPE! He flies away with the Master Emerald, and you have to literally slam into his mech, and pray to God you don't lose all your rings. It doesn't help that he launches bombs at you. Also, NO CHECKPOINTS! You screw up, you start over.

THAT'S hard.

What? this boss is easy as hell. All you have to do is destroy stuff.

6 Big Arm - Sonic the Hedgehog 3

I didn’t appreciate this until I played launch base without using debug to play in hyper form today. VERY hard.

Big Arm, Is obviously needing to be 4, As it's one of the Eggman's Powerful machines. Seriously. How can he knock you out from Super Sonic?

This one wasn't actually so hard for me. In fact, I think it's the easiest, probably because Super Sonic doesn't last me all the way to the boss most times. But there is no variety on his pattern of attacks, and if you practice and know where to jump, it's a piece of cake.

This boss was crazy hard the first time because I had no idea when to hit him, so I had to retry this boss at least five times to memorize his attacks. But in the 3DS version of Sonic Generations, since it was the fist boss in the game, it made Big Arms seem like a joke. The music is also epic.

7 The Finalhazard - Sonic Adventure 2: Battle

This boss was easy for me as super sonic and shadow, but when I first fought him as shadow by himself he was harder

Wait, this is too easy to me.

This should be on sonics easiest boss fights list! Sorry to burst your bubble guys!

Honestly, pretty easy, beat it on my 3rd try as a kid when I was 11.

8 Egg Emperor - Sonic Heroes

I hate that he can hit you while you’re on the booster pad and kill you.

I think this still deserves to be higher on the list. I mean, It's been 3 years since I got this game and I still can't beat him! No matter how hard you try, he just likes to push you off the edge or simply DESTROY YOU.

This one was hard mainly due to how cheap it is. I died from using the leap pads and then he comes behind and hits me making me fall off the stage. I HATE THIS BOSS FIGHT!

This should likely be higher on the list. The Egg Emperor constantly slashes at you, and many people suffer a drastic loss of rings.

9 Metal Sonic - Sonic the Fighters Metal Sonic is one of Eggman’s fastest and most powerful creations. Programed to be better than Sonic in any aspect possible, he can shoot electro balls, shoot electricity downward, do a boost, and make himself invincible. He fight’s Sonic each time he gets stronger, and when he gains enough power, more.

YOOOOOO Back in the day my friends was screaming when I beat this kid

If you put it on hard mode he is so broken

One special attack on Hard mode = RIP everyone. Specials cover half the screen. It's almost impossible to win with someone that isn't a member of Team Hooligand or Sonic.

Honestly not as easy as I would have though, kinda tough.

10 Nega Wisp Armor - Sonic Colors

Relatively not that hard in terms of being a sonic boss. I beat it on my 7th try.

This is by far the best Sonic Boss EVER! I don't care how hard it is because anyone can master it if they learn the pattern it uses. This boss gets my vote for being the BEST BOSS of the BEST SONIC GAME out there!

My God, are you kidding? This is probably the easiest final boss fight of the whole series.

Too tough for me and his attacks need I say more

The Contenders

11 Lx (2nd Time) - Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood

Every time you fight him but the Super Sonic fight.That was insulting.But anyway every other time is SUPER DUPER HARD!

Spam axe kick, beam canon & chaos spear (all level 3) for the win

12 Perfect Chaos - Sonic Adventure

I don't know about you guys but this boss is extremely easy for me! It took me, I don't know a minute or 2 to beat this guy? It's pretty fun though!

He's pretty challenging when you first play against him but he shouldn't be on this list

I Died 20 Times The First Time I Played. Now I Am Very Good At Beating Him

If you can beat this you are extremely LUCKY.

13 Solaris - Sonic the Hedgehog (2006)

Both forms are a nightmare

The only Good Boss fight Of sonic 06


14 Zavok - Sonic Lost World

He's not the hardest... but if people see him at number one they'll think it's true. Trust me, it's been scientifically proven in most people... especially if they haven't played the game before. Also the larger the quotes you put on characters, the more they'll rise up in percentages. That means: ZAVOK FANS SPEAK UP ABOUT HOW POWERFUL AND SEXY ZAVOK IS AND PUT HIM ON ALL THE SONIC LISTS EXCEPT FOR THE WORST ONES! Also, if you read my quotes on Zavok in Top Ten Sonic Villains, don't forget to look under the + comments. Sometimes, even if they're new, they're under there!

Horrible, disturbing, engrossing, wretched vile, pitiful boss fight. All of them. I'm like: "B-but it's... IT'S ZAVOK! Why is he so easy. He deserves better. Maybe even better than better.

Okay, maybe it's not as easy as I made it sound last time. I died like five times in his first fight yesterday.

I'm distracted by his massive...

15 Metal Madness/Overload - Sonic Heroes

Sonic bosses aren't usually hard by any means most of the time,let's face it.That however doesn't mean there aren't difficult ones.Big arm,death egg,time eater,so on and so forth.But this boss takes the cake.The first part is easy,team rose has always been the stupidly easy part of the game.Part 2 happens,now it gets hard with the weakness changing from yellow and blue to red and blue.And the speed power is,just awful in this first phase of this fight.And let's not forget those wonderful attacks this thing carries,like fire,crystals that will make you lose if you all get caught,spikes,and a few others.Then team dark happens.They have it the hardest in my opinion.The deadly attacks happen more often,he has more hp,and his immunity will change to speed,to power,to flight.And once he disables flight,it's a rough ride.
Then the final phase happens and there are a bunch of times where I either got trapped in crystals,or ran out of rings.
Most of the attacks of his only help you,like ...more

Never played but it must be hard because it’s one of 2 bosses that require 3+ super states to beat.

Don't blame you at all. Madness can fire missiles, throw fire, you can only attack once at a time and can seal you in crystal! Overlord can blast you with crystal, throw egg fleet ships, fire missiles seal you like maddens even though you're super, can only be hurt by team blast and perform chaos control

Chuck norris cried for his mama when he saw this boss

16 Erazor Djinn - Sonic and the Secret Rings

Use time break in the head to head. Harder than extra final boss by a considerable amount. (Same hard level, but you get infinite soul gauge charge in the Alf la waya fight)

Why does it have to have hard levels and bosses

17 Antlion - Sonic the Hedgehog 2

This game is for the Game Gear.

Why is there no rings.?

18 Death Egg Robot (Knuckles) - Sonic 2


Well it’s fine I beat it it was easy

19 X Zone - Sonic Advance

The boss is named egg x

His attacks just feel random!

20 Hot Mobile - Sonic & Knuckles

How is this hard? They give you a Fire Shield every time and the worst thing about him is that he hits himself!

21 Alf Layla Wa Layla - Sonic and the Secret Rings

If you don't understand Shara he's impossible to beat.
I didn't know how to beat this scary boss in the beginning, so I looked it up

It's pretty easy when you know how to use Speed and Time break effectively.

First time I beat him easily. Then it was almost like he was evolving to the way I play. Out of the 10 times I fought him I beat him twice


22 Egg Dragoon - Sonic Unleashed

It a pretty op and hard unlike in sonic forces

Way to easy but if you don't have a good amount of life then well yea it'll be hard

In unleashed:I don't know I never played sonic unleashed,in generations:i think its easy

The one from sonic unleshed is fine but this one is really HARD

23 Silver the Hedgehog - Sonic the Hedgehog (2006)

The silver fights from sonic 06 are simple just stay away from him until he picks up tables and chairs and he says how about this after he picks up tables and chairs and says how about this you can hit him with a spinning or homing attack repeat this until he's defeated

Yeah! Who the heck put this here? In the 6 Sonic games I've played, Silver is the second easiest! Run around. "How about this?! " Homing Attack. Repeat until Silver is dead.

It's no use! You just got trapped in a barrel! It's no use! Your dead now!

Still an honorable mention even though I voted for Death Egg Robot.

Its no use take this!.(throws away controller,break sonic 06 disk)

24 Team Dark - Sonic Heroes

In Frog forest as team sonic I beat him once in 40 seconds and got an A or a B

You must be terrible at the game if you can't defeat team dark

Is it in Grand Metropolis of Frog Forest?

Usually (not always) it just takes a long time
Just time
It's not hard

25 Tails vs Eggman 2nd time - Sonic Adventure 2

I hate this boss so much

It wasent that bad
