Top 10 Legend of Zelda Bosses


The Top Ten

1 Koloktos (Skyward Sword)

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!

Oooh killing him with his own giant sword

2 Zant (Twilight Princess) Zant (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

I was waiting the whole game for this battle. I was fed up with Zant. This battle was fun and funny!

Zant is defiantly better than Koloktos, if anyone from Skyward Sword should be first, it's Ghirahim

3 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

It uses the spinner so well. Shame the spinner wasn't used more, one of my favorite items.

4 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

They made her so sexy on the second phase

5 Ganon (Ocarina of Time)

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

Scary, innovative, and just plain amazing. BEST BOSS FIGHT EVER!

It was the most epic battle in gaming history. Full stop.

6 Goht (Majora's Mask)

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

Ghirahim Battle 3 is way better than Goht.

7 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

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

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.

It's just fun! I love it

The Contenders

11 Dark Link (Ocarina of Time)

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

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.

14 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.

15 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.

16 Ganondorf (Twilight Princess) 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. V 1 Comment
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 Argorok (Twilight Princess)

He definitely needs more attention

To kill this guy you need to swing pillar to pillar with your clawshots, and then grapple onto his tail and start stabbing the gem on his back! - aarond9010

19 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!

20 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.


Must be in the top 10!
