Top 10 Super Mario Bosses

The Top Ten
1 Bowser 8-7 - Super Mario 3D Land 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... read more

Bowser Jr. is the Eggman of Mario's world. He builds and uses machines against Mario. The Koopa prince isn't as strong as his father, but he makes up for it with brains.

Bowser Jr. is a more versatile character than his father. You see this in his boss battles.

2 Petey Piranha - Super Mario Sunshine Petey Piranha is a large mutant of the Piranha Plant in the Super Mario franchise and debuted in Super Mario Sunshine. Since then, he has been a recurring boss in games such as New Super Mario Bros. and has also made appearances in sports and spin-off games.

How can Petey Piranha not be on here? The iconic boss from Super Mario Sunshine, with a commanding presence as you finish the first episode of Bianco Hills, reappears in a lot of the spin-off series and is just an awesome character.


What do you think of spraying water in a plant's mouth, ground-pounding fat guts, Piranha plants that turn into weird slime stuff, and fun? Petey Piranha, of course.

3 Bowser Jr.'s Boomsday Machine - Super Mario Galaxy 2

So good! A true challenge with fun mechanics and a good plot. Bowser Jr. typically has the best boss battles over Bowser, in my opinion.

This is my favorite boss, and it is very hard!

Man, what a mean machine Bowser Jr. built.

4 The Shadow Queen - Paper Mario The Thousand Year Door

One of the most challenging bosses and, in my opinion, one of the most difficult bosses!

She looks like an evil version of Peach.

The top one should be a Super Mario 64 boss.

5 Last Bowser - Super Mario Galaxy 2

He has the best battle music in the world. Man, I love this battle.

6 Giant Bowser - New Super Mario Bros. Wii

The music for this boss has yet to return in another Mario game, even though it's one of the best.

Too bad that they milked dry the 'Mega Bowser' final bosses soon after this.

7 Dimento - Super Paper Mario

How is The Shadow Queen number 1? Even though this boss was kind of easy, it was stellar plot-wise.

8 Wracktail - Super Paper Mario
9 General Guy - Paper Mario
10 Dark Bowser - Mario & Luigi
The Contenders
11 Wiggler - Super Mario Sunshine Wigglers are a species of caterpillar in the Mario franchise. They have a segmented body and comically large nose and are yellow slowly moving when happy, but turn red and run angrily very quickly if they get jumped on
12 Cloud N. Candy - Yoshi's Story
13 Cackletta - Final Battle - Mario and Luigi Superstar Saga Cackletta is a witch from the Beanbean Kingdom, and the main antagonist of Mario and Luigi: Superstar Saga. Her name is a pun on the word "cackle".
14 Raphael the Raven - Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island

This might have inspired Mario Galaxy, and besides, who doesn't like ground-pounding pegs to kill the boss?

15 Giant Bowser - New Super Mario Bros U

Instead of running from him like in NSMBW, you actually have to fight him! I also love the music too.

16 Meowser - Super Mario 3D World
17 Phantom - Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle

I learned Phantom's song. He's so good! Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle is my favourite game!

18 Bowser Jr.’s Mighty Megahammer - Super Mario Galaxy 2

Oh yeah, this one is great! I hoped this one was on here!

Fantastic mechanics and fun with Yoshi!

19 Gooper Blooper - Super Mario Sunshine

Not very hard, but it is funny to see his lips getting ripped off.

Lol, pulling off the tentacles!

20 King Bob-Omb - Super Mario 64 King Bob-omb became a recurring boss in later games, specifically spin off games such as Mario Party 9 and Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam.
21 Crystal King - Paper Mario
22 Doopliss - Paper Mario The Thousand Year Door
23 King Bowser - Super Mario 64
24 Bowser - Super Mario Bros. (1985)

Not very hard, he is only kind of hard in 7-4 and 8-4 because he has the hammers but still a classic one!

Classic boss battle, one of the best.

25 Galeem - Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
