Best Paper Mario Bosses

The Top Ten
1 The Shadow Queen The Shadow Queen is the overarching antagonist and final boss of Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. She is widely considered one of the most difficult bosses in the Paper Mario series.

The music is amazing along with the entire world giving you their power to defeat the Shadow Queen. Plus you must also fight Peach and use the items you've been hunting down and worked so hard to obtain to utterly destroy her. Plus the lore of the four heroes makes it even better.

Super is my fave game in the series but this is easily the best boss. It's intensely challenging and really keeps you on your toes constantly. Plus it's a surprisingly dark and atmospheric fight, and one of the most intimidating in the series.

2 The Crystal King

Amazing music, and he was fairly difficult, due to him having 2 defense and those 3 ice minions that he can spit at you. Also enjoyed his freeze attack, the ability to heal himself for 20 hp, and his cloning ability.

Bowser wasn't nearly as hard as The Crystal King. Can Bowser freeze you?

3 Super Dimento

Super Dimentio is my favourite final boss, because of his excellent design, personality, intense gameplay (turn based battle systems make it less dramatic because it doesn't flow), the sheer drama of the scene, and the music definitely. He is essentially the pure incarnation of evil power - the Chaos Heart, its perfect host Luigi, and its controller Dimentio. He had enough power to destroy the multiverse and rewrite it in his image. It took all of the heroes, pixls, ancients, pure hearts, Bleck and his love with his minions, to defeat him, and even then he left behind his power to ensure the destruction of all worlds, which could be banished only by Blumiere and Timpani's union. He could only lose to the one force stronger than chaos - love.

People like to complain about how easy he was, but let me just say that if Super Dimentio was actually hard, he would FAR outdo the Shadow Queen. For all of the reasons stated above, he is so much more dramatic than her in so many ways. If he were hard, he would be the final boss to end all final bosses. The only reason why the Shadow Queen even comes close to him for me is because she is more difficult to defeat. Also, use a Gecko code to lower your stats, or if you are not willing to cheat, try to beat him by only using Barry to knock his own projectiles back at him. Problem solved.

4 General Guy

Ha ha. General Guy Is easily the most funniest and happiest sounding boss in paper Mario. Expectably the infantry, the little girl screams made it funny and cool too fight. And the "Where did you get those moves? There... Too powerful! You're breaking the rules of War! " Made me laugh. And I'm like "What is level 15 Mario too hard for you! "

A general who is also a shy guy! What more do you? Wait I know a Starbucks shy guy.

He's the leader of the Shy Guys and how can you not like Shy Guys?

5 Cortez

This dude is no pushover. He's got three forms and can do some damage in each of said forms. Once you learn the tricks to this boss, he's not that difficult, but it's still a fairly challenging and fun battle.

Cortez is probably one of the most intimidating bosses in TTYD. He's a creepy pirate skeleton ghost who can't die and sucks out the souls of your audience. In my opinion Cortez is scarier than the Shadow Queen.

How can you not be intimidated by big bad scary skeleton pirate ghost with 4 arms?

6 Boswer

After a somewhat underwhelming fight with Grodus, you immediately have to have a showdown with a much tougher Bowser and his underling, Kammy Koopa. Easily one of the hardest Bowser fights there is.

I don't know why this is my favorite. Maybe its because your not fully prepared when you make it to him in Thousand year door.

7 Doopliss

Doopliss is a very unique and memorable boss in the Mario series. Why? Because he is the only character in Mario history to have completely stolen Mario's body and name from him.

It's even funnier when you give him a wrong name before finding his true identity.
Let's see. Is your name "PastramiButt"?

He's pretty weak, but also pretty good. 8/10

8 Koopa Bros.

It's the Teenage Mutant Ninja Koopas and they're the coolest of the cool with style, attitude, and an awesome battle theme!

9 Huff 'N Puff

Somehow I loved and hated him. I used Lakilester + Bow, each had their faults. Lakilester took huge damage due to CLoud 9 failing, and BOw attacking only one foe. His attacks were a pain, but the music was epic and the battle was cool.

10 Bonetail

Bonetail is really cool, but tough. The Pit of 100 Trials wears you out a lot, and he's hard to beat even at level 50...

He is tough to get to if you do not invest in Bp, but I beat him at level 30 also the badge he gives you is worth the trip or trips, if you beat him prior to shadow queen it will make her a but easier

The Contenders
11 Lava Piranha
12 Hooktail
13 Count Bleck Count Bleck, true name Lord Blumiere, is the central antagonist turned anti-hero of the 2007 Nintendo Wii videogame Super Paper Mario.

How is this guy so low? He was actually more challenging than Super Dimentio because of the final boss' ridiculous hitbox. Frankly, this is the REAL final boss to me. Also why does nobody talk about HIS music?

Count Bleck defiantly has the best story of any Mario villain by a long shot.

14 Magnus 2.0
15 Mimi

She's original, creative, memorable, and did I mention incredibly terrifying?

16 Gloomtail

Whats not to love about a awesome poison breathing dragon that his design just screams out awesome?

17 Macho Grubba

Backstabbing dude. What a way to end my second favorite TTYD chapter

This fight has amazing music.It's my favorite fight in the glitz pit!

18 Rawk Hawk

Rawk Hawk is so much fun.I was disappointed when I defeated him before he got on the ceiling.

19 Dimentio Dimentio is an evil harlequin magician and the main antagonist of the 2007 Nintendo Wii video game known as "Super Paper Mario". One of his notable features is that he has created his own Dimension, known as Dimension D.

This fight is so good.His design is amazing. Dimento is one of my favorite Mario villians.

20 Tutankoopa
21 Smorg

Cool boss. They should have given him more health, but his chomp attack is 9 instead of 10/11

This fight was really fun.It can be frustrating when the claw comes out and it deals 10 damage.

22 Tubba Blubba

Having Bow slap that "invincible" big guy was just so satisfying. Having him chase you before the fight was also great!

He's a big bad invincible monster that likes to eats ghosts! Not to mention his battle music is also very catchy.

For a guy who's invincible, he's pretty weak. I think the real boss is his heart.

23 Gooper Blooper
24 Lord Crump

I always enjoyed fighting his Magnus Von Grapple robots.

25 Francis

By far one of the funniest characters in the game, and he had some funky music going too. I died laughing at the chatroom scene!

Laugh out loud, I remember this from awhile ago, it was kinda dumb but it was fun at the same time
