Top Ten Hardest Mario Enemies

The Top Ten
1 Hammer Bros. The Hammer Bro is a recurring enemy in the Mario video game series which is a Koopa that walks upright and attacks by throwing hammer projectiles at the player.

I hate these things. You dodge a hammer then jump on one thinking you got 'em, but they barely managed another hammer to kill you. In general very annoying, especially when spammed in Mario Maker (technically applies for every enemy ever, but you get my point). Sometimes they only throw 1 hammer, and another moment they throw 2. If you encounter one deal with it ASAP.

The hammer suit should return in another Mario game, because it lets you be a hater hammer bros! Hammer bros have MLG powers that they probably stole from the toads but with the hammer suit, you can show Bowser what it's like, being trolled all the time with annoying flying hammers everywhere... Just bring the hammer suit back!

I think this is the hardest to defeat. In New Super Mario Bros. 2, go through a golden circle and they will throw coins instead of hammers.

Ugh, they are so unpredictable. Especially in the original Super Mario Bros. where it would be almost next to impossible to dodge them.

2 Lakitu Lakitu, known in Japan as Jugem, is a fictional flying character in the Mario franchise. Created by Shigeru Miyamoto, it first appeared in the Nintendo Entertainment System video game Super Mario Bros., where it dropped enemies called Spinies on the stage.

These guys are literally impossible to get past. Only unless you have a fire flower so you can kill them and take their cloud. Then it's fun.

Unless you have ANY high ground, there is no chance anyone is going to defeat him! His surge of Spinies are as deadly as three Hammer Bros attacking at once!

These things are evil itself incarnated. Forget Bowser, these things should be the final bosses in the games.

It's literally IMPOSSIBLE to kill these guys unless you're on high ground. That is why they're so scary!

3 Fire Bros.

It's the hardest out of boomerang bros, hammer bros, and fire bros because you can't climb up stairs when they're at the top.

These are hard unless you have a power-up, but they are really cute otherwise!

I play Super Mario 3D World and this is very easy to defeat.

And of all the Koopa Bros, Sledge Bro wasn't here?

4 Chain Chomp Chain Chomps, known as Wanwan in Japan, are metal, barking ball-and-chain like creatures that are restrained by Chains and are a main enemy in the Mario franchise.

I am 11 years old and I love NSMBWII, but holy cheez its, these are the WORST! you can only kill them by stomping on the pole, and they make you lose the propeller hat in the progress!

Really hard to avoid them!

5 Boo

These guys are nearly impossible to kill. They freak me out, yet I love them. Anyway, they just slowly stalk you and torment you in their house. It's terrible, haha. The only way you can kill them is with a star, which I only rarely find in haunted houses. What's worse is the giant boos. When I see those guys I'm like, now I just gotta run! In Mario galaxy, when you eat a boo mushroom, its great to be a boo, but when a female one sees you an touches you, your dead meat cause you turn into mario again. Just extremely annoying.

They're not invincible, you can kill them with the star or the mega mushroom, and if you are playing new super mario bros ds you can beat them with the blue shell, that power up is badass.

It's impossible to kill these guys unless you have an almost impossible to get star! I really hated these guys in super Mario bros.

At least we got to punch them in the side in Super Mario 64.

On the subject of invincible enemies, what about Black Nippers? (They're technically tiles, but can never be destroyed on normal conditions.)

6 Boomerang Bros.

No sometimes it's to easy to dodge they suck sometimes!

7 The Sun

Granted I was like 6 the last time we faced off, but I remember being absolutely obliterated by this guy. While he wasn't hard to avoid by himself, all the other enemies plus quicksand and gaps to jump. Who was the jerk who came up with this guy?

Hardest Bloomin' enemy I have faced on any game I have ever played.

This is a tricky enemy!

8 Thwomp

Just run fast.

9 Grand Goomba
10 Dry Bones Dry Bones is a common enemy species in the Super Mario series of video games since „Super Mario Bros. 3“ (1988). After his first debut as a playable character in „Mario Superstar Baseball“ (2005), he became a fan-favorite and also got playable in other spin-offs of the Mario series.

Thank goodness we got the Ice Flower and the Penguin Suit in New Super Mario Bros. Oh, the power.

I like Dry Bones! They are Koopa Troopas that burned up in lava and only their dry bones were left and they are cute.

I know. There so annoying!

They keep regenerating

The Contenders
11 Bowser Bowser is the main antagonist of the Mario Bros. Franchise. From kidnapping Princess Peach to simply destroying a fun game between Mario and Friends in the Mario Party spinoff series, this king of the Koopas has set up a certain hatred towards himself amongst the large cast of Mario Characters. He first appeared in the 1985 popular videogame, Super Mario Bros., in which he was responsible for kidnapping Princess Toadstool (more commonly known as Princess Peach), which was released in Arcades and on the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) Videogame System.

Have you even played some of the games, such as Galaxy 2? Bowser is one of the most famous villains of all times, but I sometimes question Nintendo for designing some of his battles.

In super mario 3D world he is in world one why!

Come on! The final boss in most games!

He is so hard to defeat

12 Goomba Goombas, known in Japan as Kuribo, are a species of sentient mushrooms from Nintendo's Mario franchise.

This should have specified the first World 1-1 Goomba on the NES, it pretty much racked up more kills than most insta-kill enemies, even Boss Bass.

Picture this: running with no care than a goomba pops out of nowhere and than you die! Sooo annoying!

In 3D games, they run at you and murder Mario.

Why is this at the bottom! Their Strong!

13 Kamek Kamek is a common enemy in the Mario Bros. Franchise. He usually appears in New Super Mario Bros. Games, Super Mario Bros. Games, or other similar games. He also appears in spinoff titles, like Mario Party, in which he is not a playable character but creates an obstacle for the players on their way to winning, like mixing up their orbs.

Are you sure you don't mean the Magikoopas, which had the same design as Kamek, except Kamek is a higher ranking member of Bowser's army, such as the Koopalings, or Bowser Jr.

As for fighting a Magikoopa, dear god, I've died so many times to not watching my step, and suddenly, that block is a Koopa! Either it killed me, or, even worse, the blocks would vanish, and make me fall into the lava.

Why isn't Kamek in this list? He's AWESOME. And he's very hard to beat...look at Super Mario Bros. Wii and U. You must run and run for to catch him...

14 Boohemoth

Boohemoth should be number one! He is the only Mario enemy created that is completely invincible.If you stare at him too long he will come after you again. Not even King Boo can do that! He a is so set aside from other enemies. There is no way to kill him. Also he is very rare and hard to get away from. He should be king! He is just the greatest Mario villain ever.

Boohemoth should be number 1! He is extremely sneaky and indestructible. I like how he looks because of its chubby cheeks and his size is colossal. He is the largest boo in the boo family. In new super Mario bros 2, he always crushes me! I think he is the best Mario enemy ever created!

I'm a huge Boohemoth fan! I love Boohemoths! Boohemoths are cute, colossal, and indestructible, but they appear only in two levels. One in each level. I like how they shuffle towards me when I stare at them. They are my favorite Mario character!

When I get squished between a Boohemoth and a wall, I die! He is also indestructible, but he is one of my favorite Mario characters.

15 Koopa Paratroopa
16 Spiny

Actually, most power-ups, including the Fire Flower, can kill a Spiny, they're technically Goombas that can't be stomped on.

I think you're confusing it for the kind with one needle, which is immune to most power-ups, like a Buzzy Beetle, and can't be jumped on, except these things aren't spawned by any kind of Lakitu.

Just spin jump if you don't have a special power up!

17 Blooper Bloopers (Often Referred To Bloobers Until Paper Mario, Though Blooper was in use beforehand) are Squid-Like creatures that are found in the ocean. They made their first appearance in Super Mario Bros., and various kinds of them have appeared in the Mario games since, normally as enemies. Mario Party 8 was the first game to feature blooper as a playable character. Bloopers come in different sizes and colors, though the original variety shown in super Mario Bros is white.
18 Piranha Plant The Piranha Plant, known as the Pakkun Flower in Japan, is a plant species from the Mario franchise which usually appears as a leafy green stalk topped with a white-spotted red or green globe, with a maw lined with sharp teeth reminiscent of piranhas.

You can't jump on them

19 Cheep Chomp

This thing can Instantly kill you even if you have super star!

Getting eaten by them means instant death.

20 Amazy Dayzee

Holy Crap! She is so annoying how she can put you to sleep, hurt you REAL bad and run away from you! The only upside is how she can be valuable.

I got killed by these when I first played this game. First battle in the woods. BAM! 20 damage, insta-kill!

I really hate em

21 Culex

WHAT! Don't say you don't remember him. Culex is an optional boss is Super Mario RPG Legend of the Seven Stars, he has Four Elemental Crystals, that all have high defense and attack, and altogether they have about 20,000 HP. It has even HP than both forms of Smithy.

Yes he is ridiculously hard but he isn't a regular enemy, he is a BOSS so he does not count

22 Chargin' Chuck
23 Meowser

God damn Bowser uses 3 power ups that you can use the cherry one and the cat one

24 Spike

These guys are annoying. They throw spiked balls at you from a high platform or a flying block so they move around. Those spikes are big so it is hard to jump at the last minute. You must also speed run from the stone Spike. They throw spike balls from the above.

25 Fawful Fawful, known in Japan as Gerakobits, is a fictional character appearing in the Mario & Luigi series of role-playing video games developed by AlphaDream.
