Top 10 The Legend of Zelda Bosses

The Top Ten
1 Twinrova (Ocarina of Time)

AH. Twinrova, the boss of the Spirit Temple. Here is how you kill them. One is a sorceress of fire and one is a sorceress of ice. The stupid Navi tells you that they don't like each other's powers or something like that, so when Koume (fire sorceress) shoots fire at you, you have to reflect it to Kotake (ice sorceress).

After you do that a couple of times to each one of them, they turn into Twinrova. My pal is right, she 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 first or second time, move away. If you get all of the same power three times in a row, release all the power from the mirror shield and then finish Twinrova with your sword.

2 Koloktos (Skyward Sword)

Definitely one of the more appealing boss battles of Skyward Sword. Koloktos was a great boss battle. It was so satisfying to hit him with the massive sword you get from him. He definitely fit with the dungeon atmosphere (Ancient Cistern).

It also used the newly acquired dungeon item, the whip, to good use as well. Overall, a great boss battle with a 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.

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 a good 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 things up a lot.

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 too.

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 me what you think of my game.

It's called 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.

5 Majora (Majora's Mask)

This boss is by far the best final boss of any 3D Zelda game.

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

6 Bongo Bongo (Ocarina of Time)

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

7 Goht (Majora's Mask)

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

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

8 Ganon (Ocarina of Time)

Ocarina of Time is considered by many 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 flames 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 was incredible. Just because Skyward Sword bosses had fancy gimmicks doesn't make them better. Not saying they were all bad, but seriously, Koloktos just looked kind of like a dopey action figure.

Defeating Ganon was far more rewarding, and losing the Master Sword at the beginning was far more suspenseful.

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!

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, playing his own theme music. Need I say more?

Link comes in and goes all like, "Hey! Ganondorf! Give me back Zelda!" and Ganondorf goes all like, "You win this volleyball game with an electric ball and you can take her." Ganondorf is NOT a good loser.

Next thing you know, you're running out of the castle, avoiding falling ash and the collapsing castle. Then he tries to kill you as a giant, but it is basically gymnastics class for Link.

The Contenders
11 Stalblind (A Link Between Worlds)

Though A 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 health, 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 and attack you whenever you're near it.

All around, this fight is unique and is by far the best normal boss in A Link Between Worlds.

12 Helmaroc King (Wind Waker)

This boss was so epic. It has two 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.

You're finally facing off with Ganon's colossal pet bird. Epic!

Link: Oh, look, a feather. There must be a seagull nearby.

Helmaroc King: KAW!

Link: Holy crap! Nice... seagull?

13 Argorok (Twilight Princess)

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

Freakin' amazing! Best boss in Twilight Princess and the whole series!

It's a dragon (which is awesome) and in my favorite 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. 'Nuff 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 dungeon's 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 tongue, 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 for lightning to strike your sword and 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, it 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!

18 Twinmold (Majora's Mask)

It's more tedious than anything, except long. I started 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's Mask can be put on here, and it's crazy awesome.

19 Blizzeta (Twilight Princess)

Cool boss, but it gets even cooler when you top it off 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 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 while 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...

21 Barinade (Ocarina of Time)

I honestly love Gyorg, but Barinade is one of the few sea creature-based bosses that 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 I just did it with 2/4 hearts left at the end (no fairies).

22 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!

23 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! The soundtrack 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.

24 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.

25 Dark Dragon (Oracle of Seasons)
