Top 10 Hardest The Legend of Zelda Bosses

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

Hardest boss in the world, if you think to get
close to this boss, get darak's shield, and it is easier to fight it inside the castle.

Warning: DO NOT GO FOR VAH NABORIS FIRST! The hardest boss in the game and the hardest legend of zelda boss that I have beaten. And I have beaten some of the top five on this list and ganondorf twilight princess is not hard (fishing rod). Koloktos, I beat on my seventh try, but thunderblight ganon took me at least 30 tries (and I beat calamity ganon on the first try). And maz koshia may have moves harder to avoid, but by the time you reach him, you will have many skills. I do admit that I only beat ocarina of time through glitch and I have not played majora's mask so I do not know how hard bongo bongo or gyorg is. But I have beaten 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.

Hardest Zelda boss by far and above. Was stuck on it for hours.

This probably isn't the hardest Zelda boss, but this one is really annoying, especially in his final phase

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.

It moves very fast!

3 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?

Koloktos was Harder than bongo bongo and ganondorf of twilight princess

4 Vaati Transfigured (Minish Cap)
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.

This deserves way higher.

6 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.

So hard and fiddly

7 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

8 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!

9 Twinrova (Ocarina of Time)

Twinrova is the hardest boss to defeat for sure.

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.

Heh. He's not that hard to beat!

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.

This should be way higher.

12 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.

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 Ganon (Ocarina of Time)

Ran out of magic a lot

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 Twinmold (Majoras Mask 3D)

The second phase and Link's slow movement is the reason this fight is hard

This thing doesn't die

17 Onox (Oracle of Seasons)

I hate that thing

18 Monk Maz Koshia (Breath of the Wild)

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

19 The Imprisoned (Skyward Sword)

Just...no.

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

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

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

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.

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.

This boss is random and infuriating and it's all up to RNG. Hardest zelda boss by far let alone final boss

It is only at this spot because of the stupid firce dietys mask. With out it you will be DEAD

21 Waterblight Ganon (Breath of the Wild)
22 Levias (Skyward Sword)
23 Stallord (Twilight Princess)
24 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.
25 Yuga and Ganon (A Link Between Worlds)
