Top 10 Legend of Zelda Bosses

The Top Ten

1 Koloktos (Skyward Sword)

Definitely one of the more appealing boss battles of Skyward Sword, Koloktos was a great boss battle, legit was so satisfying to hit him with the massive sword you get from him, he definitely fitted with the dungeon atmosphere (Ancient Cistern). It also uses the newly acquired dungeon item whip to good use as well, overall great boss battle with good theme, the laugh he does at the end is pretty creepy though.

I lone this boss. You beat him with his own weapon. And the fact that he destroys his own minions and doesn't even care. Too bad he was a 6 year old girl all along

Honestly, I enjoyed most of the Skyward Sword bosses, but Koloktos has always stood out to me. I think it may have to do with the location, the Ancient Cistern. It also introduced a new item into the game, the whip. Koloktos also requires a choice of moves because you might have to either fight or run.

This boss is the most epic you kills him with his own weapon and a whip he even is smarter then the rest of those bosses he covers his only weak spots no matter what!

2 Twinrova (Ocarina of Time)

In the second phase all you have to do is target her and hold out your shield and then slash her when she's stunned

I wasn't expecting phase 2! But anyway, here's how kill them.
You simply reflect there attacks in phase one, You hit the ice witch with fire magic from the fire witch and vice versa, on phase 2 you have to block her attacks about 3 times (I think) and when the power is at max it fires a beam onto her, that'll leave her vulnerable for attacks, so just slash away!

This was an awesome fight but wasn't the best.

AWESOME! The creativity is excellent.

3 Stallord (Twilight Princess)

The spinner really isn't the best item but it is a fun filled fight.

Stallord was very fun, especially with a game of ping-pong. I even added him to my made-up game, The Legend of Zelda: Lost Hero. My invented game is only within my papers and mind. Tell what you think of my game. It's lost hero because everyone forgot who Link is thanks to Vaati, Demise, and Ganondorf. Navi, Midna, and Fi will help you on your adventure. It has at least 14 bosses.

Attacking his spinal column with one of the best items in the game was fun, then it all comes down to you riding on the walls trying to destroy his skull.

You get to use the BEST item in the game to fight him... and I challenge you to say the spinner isn't the best item ever

4 Goht (Majora's Mask)

What other Zelda boss is more of a race than a fight?

I love the Goht battle, as I also like the Goht's design. Should be number 1.

Ghirahim Battle 3 is way better than Goht.

Gohtta vote for this guy

5 Bongo Bongo (Ocarina of Time)

The guy is plain creepy due to that sound he keps making until you realize he's THE ONE MAKING THE SOUND. If I could make a final boss this guy would be it.

Why not I mean he's fun and pretty easy

Most Creative boss fight

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

The battle against the Usurper King Zany is my pick for the best in the series. For a start the build up was phenomenal, and if you were anything like me you wanted to slash at him with your sword from the moment you saw him. Seeing him losing it when he fails to get his own way is a favourite moment of mine. At first I found it hilarious but looking back, it doesn't make him a bad villain, but shows that even the calmest people will go crazy if their plan goes completely wrong. Anyway, on to the battle, and is it awesome? You bet it is! It has no less than 6 phases. 6! In the first 5 phases he will teleport you to the arenas where you fought some earlier bosses and minibosses and you have to use similar tactics to defeat Zant as you did for those bosses. But the 6th Phase. Zant will warp you over to Hyrule Castle and goes full-on mental. He will become extremely aggressive and you have block his attacks with the shield and wait until he gets tired to slash at him. Even the music ...more

Awesome. His boss fight is awesome and a great villain! (Ghirahim is better though)

Story wise, this battle was amazing. People criticize it for Zant not being threatening and his change in personality coming out of nowhere, but that's not the case. Zant was a threatening villain, and when he realizes he can't have what he wants, he snaps. He goes insane, running around and doing strange things, but instead of that proving that he isn't that good a villain, it shows how even the most collected and effective people can be broken down, especially by an overwhelming desire for power or whatever it may be. Also, the battle itself was really fun, showing how impatient and crazy Zant is by switching up a lot, and also, it was really fun to go through a lot of the previous battles but with some differences...I just wish the Stallord battle had been brought back, also.

The Zant boss battle was the best in the series in my opinion the music was awesome during the boss fight he warps you to all the different areas in which you had to find out different strategies to take down the boss in each area and in the end it all came down to a sword to sword battle testing all the skills that you've learned so far

7 Ganon (Ocarina of Time)

Ocarina of Time is considered by lots of people to be the best video game of all time, and it all built up to this final confrontation. The presentation of the last stage of the fight was awesome with flame around the stage and lightning in the background. The fact that beast Ganon's body is so dark and you have his piercing green eyes staring you down along with his two giant golden swords slashing at you. Just because Skyward Sword bosses had fancy gimmicks doesn't make them better. Not saying they were all bad, but seriously koloktos just looked kinda like a dopey action figure. Defeating Ganon was far more rewarding and losing the master sword at the beginning was far more suspenseful.

I love how you can attack canon with multiple weapons, and its more of a fight to beat him then a puzzle like other bosses like bongo bongo. you actually get to find any means necessary to beat up canon. wether that be dins fire, the megaton hammer, deku nuts, hookshot, arrows, you name it.

Took me about 12 tries but totally worth it. by the way use the master sword once you get it back because only the master sword works for the final blow. Learned that the hard way.

Looks very difficult to beat, especially if he's the last boss! If has a section of Ganondorf then he must be really strong

8 Majora (Majora's Mask)

I had the Bunny Hood equipped in this battle. Thank god I did!

It's a good battle.

So tough but epic!

This boss is by the far the best final boss of any 3d zelda game.

9 Gohma

She poops eggs out of her cake hole

That's discuting

Ol' Queenie is awesome. She has a cool, creepy look and is the first boss that prepares Link for his journey to become the Hero of Time

10 Dark Link (Ocarina of Time)

Gimme that Biggoron Sword and I'll carve him like roasted cucco

Although not a true boss, he was the most challenging yet fun enemy in the game.

It's a mini boss, but he's FUN!

Dark link is the best boss ever!

The Contenders

11 Helmaroc King (Wind Waker)

This boss was so epic. It has to phases. The first one you just have to run away from him while he is destroying everything in sight. Then you have to use your awesome skull hammer to crush its beak

Your finally facing off with Ganon's Colossal pet bird. Epic!

So darned emotional and satisfying.

It's just fun! I love it

12 Argorok (Twilight Princess)

I love this boss and the way you fight him in my opinion this is a amazing boss

The atmosphere's great, the fight is great, the item is fun, and it's a dragon. 'enough said

He definitely needs more attention

Is that his ass what he slaps?

13 Molgera (Wind Waker)

Really cool guy. Unlike most Zelda bosses, his weak spot is the tounge, not the eye. Plus, the music rocks.

I love it

14 Twinmold (Majora's Mask)

It's more tedious than anything, except long (I started a around 5:00 PM on the final day and It got me to the final 6 minutes. And I still didn't kill him! ). But, this is a cool boss fight. The Giant' mask can be put on here, and it's crazy awesome.

15 Blizzeta (Twilight Princess)

I think this boss is kinda cool... cool... cool... boss... NOT TAKE MIRROR!


Must be in the top 10!

Cool boss, but it even gets cooler when you top it up with its super cool boss theme.

This thing scared me to death

16 Demise (Skyward Sword)

... Why question this epic boss fight that causes all the others. He is like all the bosses combined since he caused the others so, he should really be first!

Said no one ever. Sorry, but Demise isn't the best boss in the Zelda series.

No, Demise isn't Even Worthy of an Honorable Mention.

This guy was intense and the soundtrack made it even better. At least top 5. come on.

17 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.

The sword fight with him was totally awesome

It's the most real feeling battle.

Such an amazing boss!
my favorite in the series!

The thing that truly makes it epic isn't that it’s filled with cataclysmic magic, ancient technology, or crazy transformations, it’s quite the opposite. Ganon has stepped down to the level of a swordfighter. He only needs that. It’s just two men, two blades, one common goal...

18 Ghirahim Final Battle (Skyward Sword)

Best! Villain! EVER! Sound track is awesome and I love skyward sword!

Ghirahim is best Zelda boss. 'enough said.

Come on, this guy is awesome and his taunts are golden. Give this boss some love and vote

This fight is pure gold and the music is epic

19 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.

How is this fight not higher? It's polished, intense, and Zelda actually does something.

Fecking loved this battle

20 Gyorg Pair (The Minish Cap)

Awesome and hard this fight blew away the concept of dingy dungeons and introduced a palace in the sky

It's the only Boss which you fight in the middle of the air, like... No solid soil!?
It's obviously not the hardest. But one of the most unique, along with Goht and Smog (Which is not on the list?! What?! ).
It's the only Boss with two bosses who fight as a pair, instead of two individual bosses together (They connect theirs attacks... He protects her... She protects him... Lovey-dovey couple... Waaah! Why did I kill such a cute couple? ;-

21 Skeldritch (Spirit Tracks)

I love how Skeldritch is a puzzle boss, and not only requires skill with the dungeon item, but some strategy as well. His fight really uses the Sand Wand, the dungeons weapon, well, and he is pretty challenging as well.

22 Volvagia (Ocarina of Time)

I love that the skull lands right next to you. It scared the living daylights out of me!

She was the coolest boss in OoT behind Twinrova! Definitely needs to be higher. Plus it's so fun to do a jumping megaton hammer right into her face.

I shot her crazy head off.


23 Calamity Ganon (Breath of the Wild)

An amazing example of a final exam boss that looked amazing!

Really fun and difficult boss fight

24 Barinade (Ocarina of Time)

Took me about 4 tries when I was 9 but just did it with 2/4 hearts left at the end (no fairies).

I honestly love Gyorg, but Barinade is one of the few sea creature based bosses that likes to show he means business. He should have been the Water Temple boss instead of Morpha.

25 Ganondorf (Ocarina of Time) 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.

Link comes in and goes all like, "Hey! Ganondwarf! Give me back Zelda! " and Ganondwarf goes all like, "You win this volleyball game with and electric ball and you can take her." Ganondwarf is NOT a good loser. Next thing you know, your running out of the castle avoiding falling ash and the castle collapsing. Then tries to kill you as a giant but it is bascically gymnastics class for Link.

I just love how you just use whatever the heck you've got in your inventory to beat him up in the final phase.

Fun and epic as heck. Atmosphere and music are also amazing.

Just repeat Phantom Ganons second phase and your pretty much good to go, but for his final attack use the spin attack.
