Top 10 Best Super Smash Bros. Series Bosses

Who can forget the thrill of engaging in epic battles with some of the most iconic bosses in the Super Smash Bros. series? The adrenaline rush, the high stakes, the frenzied dodging and the triumph of finally defeating a particularly challenging boss - these experiences have become an integral part of our gaming lives.

Out of all the bosses you've battled, which ones stand out as the best in the Super Smash Bros. series? Was it the classic foes like Master Hand, who has been around since the very first Super Smash Bros. game, or the more recent additions such as Galeem and Dharkon with their extravagant battles and powerful moves? Or perhaps, it's the bosses that transitioned from being merely opponents to becoming playable characters that piqued your interest.

One thing is for sure, the Super Smash Bros. series has never shied away from introducing epic, memorable boss battles that test our mettle as gamers. It's the electrifying mix of challenge, strategy, and fun that makes these bosses so endearing, and sometimes, even infuriating.
The Top Ten
1 Tabuu

Tabuu is a tough one. He has a wide range of attacks, but because of how predictable they all are, it's your fault if you get hit. I won't deny this boss is hard, but he's just a little overhyped in that category.

It's so hard to dodge the off waves!

2 Master Hand

I voted for Master Hand. Why? Because he's classic. Original. From Kirby. And also because I've never gotten to Tabuu! I've gotten to the great maze but never to Tabuu! What does he even look like? I'd probably vote for him if I got to him... he is #1 on the top ten hardest video game bosses! Like I asked earlier, what does he look like? My friend said he looked like those purple guys you have to fight in Melee... is this true? Most of you won't know what I mean by "purple guys," but some of you might. Is he blue? I pictured him blue.

3 Crazy Hand

He's much crazier than Master Hand.

4 Giga Bowser

I like Bowser. His design is awesome, and he's been in every game since Melee, which is proof that Nintendo likes him too.

He's a supersized version of Bowser.

5 Master Core

Master Core looks awesome, but it is really hard to defeat because you have only two lives, and if you die, you have to start all over again! One guy took 4-5 hours to beat the 9.0 Master Core.

I can't beat it. It's too hard. Why is it so intense?

6 Ridley Ridley is a villain from the Metroid series and a character from the Super Smash Bros. series. He's Samus Aran's archenemy and has been fighting her since day one with the first Metroid game in 1986. When Samus was three years old, Ridley murdered her parents in front of her. He is a member of the Space... read more

He's only a villain who killed Samus' parents, leads a group of evil space pirates, and only wants to kill Samus. In fact, the only reason he's this far down is that he could even be a character.

If he were smaller, he could be a playable character, but he is quite tough, though.

7 Galleom

He killed all the previous bosses in SSB and is the coolest looking.

8 Metal Face

He's so annoying, but his commentary is hilarious!

9 Galeem

The Galeem and Dharkon secret boss fight is so amazing. I love the boss rush and fighting the clone fighters.

Maybe it's the first time we've had a light side that isn't a good guy. And it created a Nintendo multiverse where different franchises mix up together.

He's better than Dharkon. He's mega super hard. One of his attacks one-shots you, and there's no escape.

10 Dharkon

He's creepier with the choir theme contrast with the "god" is good! And Bayonetta, Crazy Hand is on side.

The Contenders
11 Metal Mario Metal Mario is a character that appears in both the Mario series and the Super Smash Bros, where he made his first appearance in the Nintendo 64 version. He's pretty similar to Mario when using a Metal Cap, but instead of being a transformation, Metal Mario is his own character.

Well, I'm glad that Metal Mario is at least number 7, but he is better than Ridley for sure! I do think that Tabuu, Master Hand, Master Core, and Crazy Hand should be the highest because they are all exclusive to Smash, and I can understand people liking Giga Bowser better, even though I prefer Metal Mario!

He's the only boss from Smash 64 to have a home stage exclusive for his battle.

Metal Mario deserves more than 2 percent. He's the quintessential boss of SSB besides Master Hand.

12 Master Fortress
13 Duon
14 False Characters
15 Fighting Alloy Team
16 The Showdown
17 Fighting Polygon Team
18 Petey Piranha 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.

Okay, so he wasn't that hard to defeat, but he finally makes a boss return since Sunshine!

This should be number 1. Hands down.

19 Fighting Wire Frames

Those purple guys and girls you fight during SSBM's Multi-Man Melee mode. On 100 Multi-Man Melee, the last guy is always tougher than the rest. If you complete this mode for the first time, brace yourself for another tough fight...

20 Meta Ridley

The kick move is a great move. His moveset and the location where you meet him make him a difficult boss if fought in Brawl solo.

Why is this the only Smash Bros boss I suck at?

21 Rayquaza Rayquaza (pronounced "ray-quay-zah") is a Dragon/Flying type Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. It serves as the mascot in the game Pokémon Emerald. Rayquaza can mega evolve into Mega Rayquaza provided that it does not have a Z-Crystal and it knows the move... read more

He's pretty easy but difficult for beginners.

Pokémon for the win! Ray is an epic boss, though kind of weak for the god of the sky.

22 Porky

Many people say that he is easy, but I think he is very hard. His attacks can do a lot of damage and are very powerful. I like his theme so much.

His theme was so catchy, I sat there listening to it instead of fighting! He's a great boss too.

23 Marx

He's a boss in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and to be very honest, I never understood why people wanted him to be a playable fighter. Seriously, why exactly did people want him as a fighter? I think he's better off NOT playable. Something about his design and what he does in the Kirby games feels off to me.

Marx left a great feeling after defeating him. Such nostalgia.

The first final boss I ever fought is revived.
