Top 10 The Legend of Zelda Bosses

The Top Ten
1 Twinrova (Ocarina of Time)

AH. Twinrova ( boss of the spirit temple. Ok here is how you kill them. One is a sorcress of fire and one is a sorceress of ice. The stupid navi tells you that they don't like each others powers or something like that so when Koume (fire sorcress) shoots the fire at you and you have to reflect it to koume (ice sorcress) after you do that a couple of times to each one of them.A and then they turn into Twinrova. My pal is right see does look like the witch from the wizard of oz in a cherry power up from Mario 3d world. She fires at you three times with the same power if you don't see the same power she shot at you the 1st or 2nd time move away if you got all of the same power three times in a row release all the power from the mirror sheild then finish Twinrove with your sword

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!

2 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.

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.

Could the whip have been done with just a button press? Yes, but motion controls just make ripping his arms off all the more satisfing.

Not to mention the cage around his weak spot. At first I thought "have to trigger it to open somehow" Nope! You just crush it with his own sword!

3 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 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 gradually changes to accommodate how insane Zant is during each phase. This is the best boss in the Zelda series and if anything ever tops it I will be very surprised.

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.

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

5 Majora (Majora's Mask)

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

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

It's a good battle.

6 Bongo Bongo (Ocarina of Time)

Honestly, this thing scarred me for life but I love him.

Most Creative boss fight

7 Goht (Majora's Mask)

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

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

Ghirahim Battle 3 is way better than Goht.

8 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.

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

Epic fight final boss just amazing and I like the mechanics. You play tennis with Ganondorf, run out of his tower. Kill Ganondorf(seal him away) and beat the game.

9 Dark Link (Ocarina of Time)

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

Dark link is the best boss ever!

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

10 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.

This was one of the best and most epic battles with Ganondorf. I remember climbing those stairs to reach Ganondorf while his theme music was playing. When you reach his chamber Ganondorf is sitting at the organ piano playing his own theme music. Need I say more!

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.

The Contenders
11 Stalblind (A Link Between Worlds)

Though Link Between Worlds is the only Zelda game I have played thus far, this guy stands as one of my favorite normal bosses. His design is awesome and the fight is even better. I don't want to spoil the fight, which is why I'm vague. Once you deplete a certain amount of his heath, Stalblind catches on to your tricks and outright abandons his weakness, but it gives you the chance to strike him head on, once Stalblind loses more of his health, he "summons" something that will move all over the battlefield that attacks you whenever you're by it. All around, this fight is unique and is by far the best normal boss in Link Between Worlds.

What a beast, and he has some significance to the dungeon, because you try to rescue one of his former theaves, and just when you think you made it, he traps her and then laughs and has some dialogue and then you fight him. The fight it self is terrifying, because stalblind is a ghost skeleton with a sword and shield, but you can merge onto his shield without him knowing where you are and then you can attack him. I thought this was very cool and very fun to do. After he throws his shield away, you can then attack him but he attacks you even harder and can even use a spin attack. Eventually he even throws his head around that spews something out, and his body attacks willy nilly, I though this boss concept made for a cool boss, and you get to see him have some personality. He also has 3 phases, something no other boss in the game has, not even Yuga-Gannon.

12 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!

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

13 Argorok (Twilight Princess)

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!

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!


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

14 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.

15 Molgera (Wind Waker)

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

16 Calamity Ganon (Breath of the Wild)

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

17 Demise (Skyward Sword)

This battle was epic and kind of frustrating at first if you played and beat this game on the Wii. What made the battle so cool yet frustrating was the way you had to use the Wii remote controller. I remember you had to actually hold the Wii remote up high in order the lightning to strike your sword in order to do damage. Then you had to go for the final blow by holding the Wii remote like a downward strike. Once that final blow connected if felt so rewarding.

... 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.

18 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.

19 Blizzeta (Twilight Princess)

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

20 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.

Out of the all the battles I had with Ganondorf thus far this is the best one. Just epic! First you actually fight Ganon first for a change and then Ganondorf. That epic music fighting Ganon was sweet. Finally, Link teams up with Zelda to stop him while riding on horseback.

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...

It's the most real feeling battle.

21 Ghirahim Final Battle (Skyward Sword)

So fabulous! I love the variation of things you do in this fight, with volleying his attacks, destroying his sword and even knocking him off platforms. The plot is also really good here too, with Demise almost revived and Ghirahim revealing that he is Fi's counterpart. The motion controls are really good as well and it warms you up before the fight against the final boss.

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

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

22 Barinade (Ocarina of Time)

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.

He serves as a great early game boss, and a wake up call when it comes to the difficulty.

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

23 Volvagia (Ocarina of Time)

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

I shot her crazy head off.

24 Dark Dragon (Oracle of Seasons)
25 Phantom Ganon (Ocarina of Time)

He looks way cooler than the real ganondorf because of the staff!

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