Top 10 Legend of Zelda Bosses


The Top Ten

1 Koloktos (Skyward Sword) 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.

The ancient cistern was great and it ended on a high note with this boss

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

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

This is an amazing boss because of just how much variety there is. It's so fun because he's such a long boss, but it doesn't feel TOO long. The batt;e has so many fun moments, which require you to use almost every ability you've learned. I wish more bosses were as good as this one.

... A drunk cat as a main villain? COUNT ME IN!

3 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! - aarond9010

How the hell is twinrova sexy!? - Tisme_draGON

They made her so sexy on the second phase

4 Stallord (Twilight Princess)

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. - aarond9010

Favorite boss Favorite game

Too many zombies...but that 2nd phase...UH! YEAH!

5 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.

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

An amazing boss to finish a truly outstanding game. The whole game was building up to this point and it didn't disappoint.

6 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

7 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 - Lord28

9 Phantom Ganon (Ocarina of Time)

Link: Hey Ganon You wanna play doubles next time?

Hey can we be friends. You have hot jokes, bro

Love his staff that shoots the bolts! Lol

10 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.

Link:oh, look, a feather. There must be a seagull nearby.
Helmarock King: KAW!
Link:holly crap! Nice...seagull?

The Contenders

11 Dark Link (Ocarina of Time)

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! - aarond9010

He's really fun to fight.


12 Gohma

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 - ShuhBanggg

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 Argorok (Twilight Princess)

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?

FRIKIN AMAZING! Best boss in Twilight Princess and the whole series! It's a dragon (which is awesome) and in my favourite TP dungeon and you get to pull it to the ground with iron boots! YEAH!

16 Blizzeta (Twilight Princess)

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

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

This thing scared me to death

17 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? ;-

18 Vaati (Four Swords)

I never fought Vaati because I never had the game but I watched the boss battle and it seemed cool. I added him in my made-up game, The Legend of Zela: Lost Hero. He teamed up with Demise and Ganondorf. Tell me what you think of the game.

I love Vaati! The fact he has many forms is awesome! His backstory also is cool considering you would never have guessed he was once a picori/minish!

19 Barinade (Ocarina of Time)
20 Demise (Skyward Sword)

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.
