Top 10 Hardest Sonic Bosses

The Top Ten Hardest Sonic Bosses

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.

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

Why they didn't and rings in the and two bosses and there is just nothing but fight against them trust me there hard bro

2 The Biolizard - Sonic Adventure 2: Battle

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

This boss battle is so hard! But luckily it only took me 2 days to beat him. So I'm pretty damn lucky that I finally killed him. But then there is final hazard. He's less difficult then him and only took me 3 or 4 tries to beat him. - SanicHeghog123

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

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. - CN121

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

I am actually trying to beat that level now and it is hard! I keep running out of lives.

5 Doomsday Zone - Sonic 3 & Knuckles

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

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

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.

Epic. But, with practice and entire focus on the game and not your 9 year old brother jumping up and down screaming all the time because you finally got another EPIC boss, you'll find it not as hard to do, as, say Sonic 2 Death Egg Zone. - ICader

6 Big Arm - Sonic the Hedgehog 3

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. - ICader

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 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.

The only boss that can knock you out of Super Sonic.

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 - trains45

Wait, this is too easy to me. - noo7na7

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

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!

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

I HATE HIM. Everything is annoying about him. Enough said.

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! - SanicHeghog123

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 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

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

14 Solaris - Sonic the Hedgehog (2006)

Both forms are a nightmare

The only Good Boss fight Of sonic 06

15 Zavok - Sonic Lost World

Zavok is the HARDEST boss in the Game plus RIP sonic the hegehog 1991-2013. Killed By Zavoks dragon

This boss is the worst in the game more than the finale boss in the 3ds version. First it's 2d boss the only in the game beside master zik and his attcks like the attcks were he spins around his dragon for about 15 to 20 seconds whiles firing lasers. The only good way to do good damage to him is with the cyanl lazer.

16 Antlion - Sonic the Hedgehog 2

This game is for the Game Gear.

Why is there no rings.?

17 Erazor Djinn - Sonic and the Secret Rings

Why does it have to have hard levels and bosses

18 Death Egg Robot (Knuckles) - Sonic 2


Well it’s fine I beat it it was easy

19 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!

20 X Zone - Sonic Advance

The boss is named egg x

21 Alf Layla Wa Layla - Sonic and the Secret Rings

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

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

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

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. - Edgehog05

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

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

26 Final Zone - Sonic the Hedgehog

This boss really is not to hard but I was low on lives to face it because of that horror scrap brain zone.

27 Devil Doom - Shadow the Hedgehog

I've once was against the devil doom in shadow the hedgehog and he's is difficult

28 Egg Chamber - Sonic Triple Trouble

Why Sega, why?!? This monster is as hard as the Red Falcon's Brain, from Contra III

1-you have no rings and there's lasers on the celing and he goes at a ridicoulasly high speed

29 Metal Sonic - Sonic the Hedgehog CD 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.

This boss is so easy. I beat him my second try. I grabbed the speed monitor and the extra life rolled to not let the three ring boxes stop me and I managed to bring the speed monitor with me. I landed on spikes when I jumped which sucked and Metal Sonic caught up with me. I remained running and jumped over metal Sonic and managed to stay ahead of him and win the race. Really the only challenges are those stupid slopes and Dr. Robotnik's death laser. Rather than trying to run you should just spin dash and jump at the start with the speed monitor. Such a simple boss.

This boss it hard, I died a lot I finally beat it yesterday felt happy that I did and was able to beat the game an hour later or so - trains45

If you fall behind, it's more than likely that you'll be killed by Dr. Robotnik's death lazer mounted on his egg mobile. And you still have to win the race, or else the finish line will close behind Metal Sonic, and then the doctor will kill you.

He is faster than you, if you are behind him he does a powerful electric attack, if you are in front, he does a dash attack, if your to slow robotic kills you

30 Iblis - Sonic 2006

He's just to hard to beat in shadow stroy I hate ibis very much

Come on iblis this time I'll finally stop u!

31 Sky Canyon - Sonic Advance 2

This boss has a attack that kills you in one hit.

The boss is named egg saucer

He's hardest as Sonic, and easiest as Cream? What is going on here?

I did beat him as tails

32 Chemical Plant Zone - Sonic the Hedgehog 2

The boss is named water eggman

LOL this is so easy. 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8. Moving on

I took me 3 times to beat this boss,just because of the platforms

33 Dark Queen - Sonic and the Black Knight

Are you kidding me? This boss is actually the one of the easiest of the bunch. - Sirkinsella98

First time I took me about 3 tries to lean her pattern. Then I just kicked her ass for fun.

Took me 3 times to beat her and I'm a sonic expert

34 Egg Golem - Sonic Adventure 2: Battle

A lot of fun! Especially played as sonic in hero mode.

This boss is hard sometimes for me - trains45

There's a bug in my game and makes this boss hard for me
The bug:
When I press "jump", the character jumps twice (the 2nd jump happens too fast so that there's no homming attack)

35 King Boom Boo - Sonic Adventure 2 Battle

Oh Christ! Who put this on the list? He's easy as pie!

36 Death Egg Mark 2 - Sonic 4 Episode 2
37 Egg Chamber - Sonic 2 GG
38 Time Eater - Sonic Generations (3DS)

I've been stuck on this for ages! I use a 3DS and those stupid rings go so quickly!

It's the time eater fight in the PS3 and Xbox 360 version that is hard

Easy! lol

39 Egg Wyvern - Sonic The Hedgehog 2006

This boss made me rage when I was 6. First of all. I only know a little bit about this boss. I played the game before but I forgot how this boss goes. All I know that sometimes he can destroy the floor you are walking on. - SanicHeghog123

40 Labyrinth Zone - Sonic the Hedgehog 1

It's impossible to defeat him, but all you have to do is go up. I'm not kidding.

The boss is named egg pursuit

41 Prefect Charyb - Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood
42 Death Egg - Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Episode 1

I found this boss much more difficult than its Sonic 2 counterpart.

The boss is named death egg robot

43 Ghost Titan - Sonic Rush Adventure
44 Extra Zone - Sonic Rush

This boss was annoying to fight, especially the first time. But to be honest, I would consider Altitude Limit's boss to be harder, due to the gun shots, giant wind, & you have to beat him twice, just to finish the game?! What is this? Nowadays, I can kill the boss with little to no issue.

Its hard as Sonic. When you are blaze your attacks are so slow.

The boss is named egg salamander

45 Egg Robo - Sonic Lost World Wii U and 3ds

It's hard to hit him because of the horrible lock on system

46 Earth Dragon - Sonic and the Black Knight

Phase 3 is the worst.

bruh beating this guy was the best part for me

47 Admiral Jelly - Sonic Colors

I was never able to get to the bubbles in time!
The DS version was not very challenging.
But this and both of the final bosses were the ones that got me.

48 Time Eater - Sonic Generations

This fight is only hard for one reason.
You can never hit the guy and when you get close he jumps back like 50 feet.
You can't go that fast when boosting.
Your friends are more annoying than the boss itself.
And it's just cheap because the time eater can throw you off of the core
The only good thing about this fight is the music but I can't hear it because of your annoying friends and me throwing my controller across the room out of rage

I got S rank on easy mode and hard mode

I took me more than 6 tries to beat this boss

It is easy if you catch the rings.

49 Sonic - Sonic the Fighters

He can copy your moves and can make defense shelids

50 Doctor Eggman - Sonic Pinball Party Doctor Ivo "Eggman" Robotnik is a fictional video game character and the main antagonist of the Sonic the Hedgehog series, created by Sega.

No one ever heard of this boss, even though it is notoriously difficult, just how?
