Top 10 Hardest The Legend of Zelda Bosses

The Top Ten
1 Thunderblight Ganon (Breath of the Wild)

Warning: DO NOT GO FOR VAH NABORIS FIRST! It is the hardest boss in the game and the most challenging boss in the Legend of Zelda series that I have defeated. I have defeated some of the top five bosses on this list, and Ganondorf from Twilight Princess is not difficult (fishing rod strategy). I managed to beat Koloktos on my seventh attempt, but Thunderblight Ganon took me at least 30 tries (even though I defeated Calamity Ganon on my first try). While Maz Koshia may have moves that are harder to avoid, by the time you encounter him, you will have acquired many skills. I must admit that I only completed Ocarina of Time through glitches, and I have not played Majora's Mask, so I cannot comment on the difficulty of bosses like Bongo Bongo or Gyorg. However, I have completed the original game, A Link to the Past, Link's Adventure, Spirit Tracks, Phantom Hourglass, Oracle of Ages, Breath of the Wild, Link's Awakening, Skyward Sword, Twilight Princess, Wind Waker, and a few others.

2 Moldorm (A Link to the Past)

This was by far the hardest boss. If there are any oldschool Zelda gamers, they will remember this giant worm of extreme annoyance.

My third ever Zelda boss.
I gave up after five tries.
The hole in the floor is just too much.

3 Vaati Transfigured (Minish Cap)
4 Koloktos (Skyward Sword)

Koloktos is a pretty hard 100/100
Ghirahim is a pretty hard 100/100
Demise is a pretty hard 100/100
Stallord no is that hard 89/100
Bongo Bongo is a pretty hard 100/100
Zant this guy is crazy and pretty hard in you fight final 100/100
Ganondorf Twilight Princess what this is a pretty easy! 50/50
Moldorm is a pretty hard and crazy 100/100
Gygorg hardest bosses in majora mask 100/100
Twinrova What is pretty pretty easyyy! 40/100

I hate this boss so much. He has too many arms and is actually one of the few bosses to try and protect his weak spot.

Is it just me or does this construct never let you whip off its arms?

5 Thunderbird (Zelda II)

Aside from it's erratic attack patterns, you also have to conserve magic on your way to getting to this boss so you can use thunder in order to even damage him.

6 Calamity Ganon (Breath of the Wild)

This boss is really hard to beat and since there is the option to not get the master sword, you can do this without the master sword, but I don't recommend it. He's super cool but a tough boss to beat.

I actually liked that you cannot really play after you beat him, because it allows you to fight him over and over and you can ever choose to have limited equipment

7 Gygorg (Majora's Mask)

While GYORG (Not Gygorg) is a difficult boss, I never found him to be too much of a pain. I voted for him because he was on this list and all of the other ones were easy. To be fair, I haven't gotten to Koloktos yet in Skyward Sword.

This boss was such a jerk. I died several times and getting back to him in the Great Bay Temple was torture.

8 Twinrova (Ocarina of Time)

Twinrova is the hardest boss to defeat for sure.

9 Bongo Bongo (Ocarina of Time)

People say this is one of the easiest battles in the game, but for me, honestly, the easiest boss in OOT was Morpha.
But still, I envy those who say it's easy, because to me, it just ISN'T!

Seriously, I can't be the only one who had trouble with this guy!
Moldorm was much easier, for me at least!

Timing has to be flawless to win.

10 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.

It's honestly just the horseback phase. I spent more time on that than the other three combined, I swear.

Even though in my opinion, he's not too hard, he has too many phases.

The Contenders
11 Dark Link (Zelda II)

I've beaten Dark Link 5 times the real way, and he is much harder than the others.

Link vs Link, it is all about luck.

12 Monk Maz Koshia (Breath of the Wild)

Bruh aint not way this isn't the hardest boss. I played on 5 accounts and beat thunderblight first try on all of them. This boss took me 5 tries.

I kinda feel bad for people who fought him before ganon because he is much harder and by far the best botw boss and potentially the best boss in any Zelda game. Aside from thunderblight he was the only botw boss dat killed me

He's probably my favorite of any tloz boss and is really fun to fight. You will most likely die many times if you do not know what you are up against

13 Demise (Skyward Sword)

When he gets to the stage where you have to charge your sword with lightning. he always seems to know when I'm trying to charge my sword and then he gives me a blow to the head.

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

Zant was harder than Bongo Bongo, Bongo Bongo was a piece of cake for me.

15 Silver Lynel (Breath of the Wild)

I've been farming them for star fragments. I once ran into one for the first time and thought it was a white maned lynel, which I could have handled. It did not go well for link

Why they are harder than the final boss? And why they have only a few moves?

They have more hit points than Ganon.
Enough said.

16 Ganon (Ocarina of Time)
17 Twinmold (Majoras Mask 3D)

Spending over a whole hour straight on the battle before heading to bed and trying again the next day, the second half of the battle was what made this battle pretty hard for me, basically the reason being what another comment said. It felt far too long, since you had to repeat the same thing 4 times, and you could die at any moment, as well as the fact that you have to occasionally get some of those green bottles before you go back to your normal size and get absolutely destroyed in the meantime. Make sure to have some fairies and potions in your pocket because the lack of those was the reason why I lost multiple times, and make sure to keep them til the second half, you need it.
Possibly the hardest battle I had to go through so far. I'm just recently going back to Zelda games since years ago so things could change.

18 Majora's Mask (The Legend of Zelda Majora's Mask)

Here's a detailed opinion on all three parts:
Majora's mask:
Nice music, nice lasers, not nice throwing-yourself-at-Link. Not really much to explain here (unless the tentacles).

Majora's Incarnation:
Music is annoying. Attacks are annoying. Coocoo sound are really annoying. Once the Mask is defeated, it comes back with legs, arms, a torso, and a eye.

Majora's Wrath:
This is insane.

That's good and all, but here's my detailed opinion.
Majora's Mask: Meh. I can easily take him on. Made easier if you have the Fierce Deity Mask.
Majora's Incarnation: OK, now he got possessed by Michael Jackson. He moonwalks and literally says "OW!" when he gets hit, and "Woo!" when he evades your attack.
Majora's Wrath: HELL.

19 Ghirahim (Skyward Sword) Ghirahim is the central antagonist of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. He is an immensely powerful Demon Lord born from Demise's sword. He aims to capture Zelda, the reincarnation of the Goddess Hylia, and use her to free his master, Demise the Demon King.

Ghirahim is one of my favorite characters of all time, not just Zelda, not just Nintendo. He is unique and just not a boring NPC

20 The Imprisoned (Skyward Sword)

First time it was really easy, you only had to hit the sealing spike 9 times. but then the SECOND time it was really really hard, but the third time was pretty much easy too

You beat SS and think you're done with this idiot.

Then you have to fight him in Hyrule Warriors, too.

21 Waterblight Ganon (Breath of the Wild)

This guy has hard patterns and if you aren't prepared you die way too much

22 Onox (Oracle of Seasons)
23 Stallord (Twilight Princess)
24 Queen Gibdo (Tears of the Kingdom)
25 Levias (Skyward Sword)
