Top 10 Scariest Video Game Bosses

Have you ever had that one boss that traumatized you as a child? See if he's on the list here!

The Top Ten

1 Giygas (Earthbound)

This battle... took SO long. You wouldn't believe! He or It's not exactly the scariest boss but I do NOT recommend this to a smaller child. The haunting music and visuals are a bit too much.

For me, part of what makes Giygas so uniquely scary is how he contrasts to the rest of Earthbound and to other bosses. The rest of the game is colorful, quirky, and cheerful. The overall dark and creepy feel of the fight makes it seem so out of place. If this fight was from almost any other game, it wouldn't be as scary. It's almost this element of surprise that makes him scary

I guess that was the reason Earthbound was rated T for the virtual console.

This guy is crazy. the fetuses, the screaming face shape, the fatally wounded music... only thing more creepy is sonic. Exe, and I'm not scared of them anymore but they were so SCARY AT FIRST

2 Zero Two (Kirby 64)

The scariest part about Zero Two, is the bad ending where he possess the Ripple Queen, and gives you that evil smirk that indicates that he's now going to transform Ripple Star into a communist dictatorship.

What freaks me out the most is the vine in Zero Two's underside, I mean how is that even possible! Kirby is my favorite video game series, and I'm shocked to see something this horrifying in it.

Blood, in a KIRBY game. It's also so unexpected. A dead spirit, that you killed, and did I mention this is a KIRBY game?

Just the fact that it bleeds out of it's eye when shot is really creepy.

3 Omega Flowey (Undertale)

Can't believe I'm saying this, but Omega Flowey should be number one! The twisted music and his evil laugh gave me more headaches in one minute, than Lavender Town did in my entire life. I used to be so scarred from this guy, I couldn't look at him for months. And no, I'm not exaggerating!

Omega flowery scared me so bad I pissed in my pants and had nightmares for weeks
I’m not joking guys

Be honest, the first time you saw that, thing, you freaked out like a little girl. I MEAN IT WAS A FLOWER AND NOW THIS FREAK OF NATURE? Thanks Toby.

The "Omega" upgrade on Flowey makes him look like he took steroids and even when he gets mad at you he looks like he took meth

4 Sorrow (Metal Gear Solid)

By far one of the creepiest, and most interesting, boss fights. The worst part is that you suffer longer if you killed a lot of enemies throughout the game, so your past decisions come back to haunt you.

When you battle him you see visions of the soldiers you killed. And, one of his moves is a screamer.

Very fitting...

What about I AM PSYCHO MANTIS AND I CAN READ YOUR MIND!

5 Pyramid Head (Silent Hill)

You hear a slow scraping along the floor... Like metal grinding on Metal. As you look towards the sound, you see a massive man in a bloody smock walks out. At his feet are hundreds of cockroaches, piling over each other in an effort to get to you. As you scream in terror, he turns towards you, and stops, motionless for a few seconds. Then he starts his slow walk towards you, as once again, you hear the sound of his massive blade grinding on the metal floor. You race down the corridor, fearing for your life at the hands of this monstrosity, this abomination of a creature. You come to a door, and in it, you see salvation, a way to get away. You turn the handle... and it's locked. Slowly your flashlight peeters out, as you collapse to ground sobbing. Suddenly, a powerful pair of hands grab you and start dragging you away. "This is the end" you think, as you scream your denial, not accepting your impending death. Suddenly, your dragged into a room, and the metal double doors at ...more

Everyone loves a pyramid-wearing blade murdering freak! He has made several appearances throughout the Silent Hill series and others as cameo like I Wanna Be The Fan Game and others.

6 Andross (Star Fox 64)

It's just a giant gorilla head with two heads and shoots at you... WAIT. When you destroy it's shell it turns out to be a BRAIN with VEINS and EYES. It seems like Nintendo really messed up on a E-rated game.

He's so big!

"I've been waiting for you, Star Fox. With my mighty intellect, the Universe shall soon be mine to command, as I see fit. Opposing me... is truly a death sentence. Heh heh heh heh heh heh heh heh... just ask your FATHER." ~ Andross

I mean, why are people so all about "Star Wolf is the coolest! "? ANDROSS is where it's at. He invaded the WHOLE DAMN LYLAT SYSTEM. And he's literally reduced himself to head-and-hands. Disturbing indeed!

7 Photoshop Flowey (Undertale)

He is Scary and hard at the same time. Oh man. OOH MANNN

I just died

8 Lavos (Chrono Trigger)

I hate Lavos!

9 The Broodmother (Dragon Age: Origins)
10 Mother Brain (Super Metroid)

The body.

The Contenders

11 Little Sisters (Bioshock Series)

Children possess a natural creepiness that has been tapped into for thousands of iconic horror movies, fiction thrillers, and everything that the Olsen Twins have ever done. Their presence in this groundbreaking first-person shooter, however, makes Little Damien's evil ways seem harmless enough to replace Jonathan Lipnicki in Jerry Maguire. They roam the diseased halls of Rapture with the menacing Big Daddy and when they spot you, they order their drill-bit toting protectors to rip out your guts and feed them back to you. If you harvest their "Adam," they turn into wiggly little slugs. If you save and release them, they grow up to get their own reality show on MTV.

I guess it's the big daddy's daughter?

12 Dead Hand (Legend of Zelda)

Gave me ALL the nightmares when I was 5

The Globgabglabgalab's half deformed cousin.

13 Bitores Mendez (Resident Evil 4)

Remember that tall guy or "the Big Cheese? " That is Bitores Mendez. If the boss battle isn't worse enough with him just all fine until you blow his legs off. HE BECOMES A CRAZY SPIDER THINGY!

14 Blizzeta (The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess)

Okay imagine this. You walk with your girlfriend to her house. She looks into her mirror and then... NOT TAKE MIRROR

When I saw the "Not take mirror" part, I almost did a front flip over my chair

Oh, it's just a little helpless thingy I forgot it's name. NOPE.. When it looks into the mirror it will probably make you jump if you weren't expecting it.

That face dough! NOT TAKE MIRROR!

15 Nemesis (Resident Evil 3)

Its nemesis, enough said

R3make's design is just bone-chilling

16 Clotho (God of War 2)
17 Majora (The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask)

The damn mask looks creepy already

18 Elder Princess Shroob (Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time)

Seriously...I had to add this? The first phase isn't scary, but the second is just mortifying.

I give for that "This is scary from the sorrow! And give 13 for this so very scary boss battle!

This Boss is also downright hard too.

WHY, MARIO? WHY?

19 Ballos's Final True Form (Cave Story)

This boss is stange and scary on last form.

20 Ansem (Kingdom Hearts)

That guy that is almost naked attached to a giant fleshy ship thingy? That's Ansem. I suggest you level up a lot before doing this.

21 The "Phaze Destrortur" (Radiation's Halloween Hack)

"At the time I didn't know why I was so scared. Now I know why...
That machine was a death trap."

The backstory behind this thing makes its appearance even more terrifying.

22 The Amalgamates (Undertale)

"Welcome to my special hell."

CUTE

23 Sans (Undertale) Sans or Sans the Skeleton is a character in the 2015 RPG Undertale created by Toby Fox. He is a lazy, pun-loving skeleton who is a supporting protagonist in the "pacifist" and "neutral" routes of Undertale, and a heroic antagonist/final boss of the "genocide" route. He is known for his incredibly difficult ...read more.

Very definite proof that even the most easygoing and fun-loving folks can be frightening, once you pushed their buttons more times, than you should have.

Not scary. But RIDICULOUSLY hard.

NOT SCARY!

😒 Oh so terrifying a skeleton in slippers a tank top and shorts. I’m not sleeping for weeks.

24 Baby Bowser (Yoshi's Island)

The Atmosphere and the music plus Baby Bowser running towards you.

25 Shadow Queen (Paper Mario,The Thousand Year Door)

In other words, instant nightmare fuel.

A Demon Summoned By The Leader Of A Cult Who Is Killed by the Demon,Who Possesses Peach and Becomes the Final Boss,and if you lose,the world becomes shrouded in darkness.
