Top 10 Terraria Bosses

These are my top picks depending on money, fun value, fairness, and look.

The Top Ten

1 Wall of Flesh

You've been anticipating this moment and now you are there. You are standing on your 900 block bridge in hell that you have been building for two hours now. You have your guide voodoo doll with you. You are prepared with molten armor, nights edge, a mini gun, and some other ranged weapon. You're now ready to fight the wall of flesh. This is the final easy mode boss, and once you beat the wall of flesh, you face another problem. Hardmode. Get ready for blood... This is going to be intense...

Lol, great memories fighting this dude. I remember me and my friend just finished building our 3 hour path in hell, and I used the guide voodoo doll just to see how hard it would be, I definitely would not beat it, or so I thought. There I was on my path with my friend, and as soon as my friend looked at it, she fell in the lava, so I was fighting it alone. I was doing decent damage to it. My friend came back to hell. Died again. By now it was well over 3 quarters dead, and just as I was about to land the final blow, I died. But my firmed was so close that he didn't despawn. When she came down, while she was falling, she hit him once. The wof was died. And then she died. We were screaming for about a half an hour. Then, as we were coming up from our tunnel we made, we got killed by a bunch of hardmode enemies. The first month in hard mode was terrible anyway, thanks for reading, sorry for long post

Multiple hungry tentacles to attack you, and even if you kill them, they detach and try to lunge at you at every chance it gets, the annoying lasers and leeches, and if you're on expert mode, a bridge and lightning boots are highly compulsory - amenyoussef

Imagine, if you will, that you (the real you, not your character) are roaming a land of fire in the center of the Earth(or bottom if you think it's flat, whatever). You're armed of course, but some utterly UNHOLY creatures are there too. These include some demons. You notice one is carrying a doll of some sort, almost resembling the Guide. Wanting the doll to see what it does, you kill the demon only for the doll to start falling... And it hits the lava. Suddenly, the ground starts shaking as a deafening roar echoes through the Underworld. You turn around, but you are immediately filled with pure terror. A giant, bloody wall of possibly human flesh with thousands of razor sharp teeth is coming for you...

Yeah, the context and buildup to this boss is what makes it so great. Good fight for its stage of the game, too! Only reason this boss isn't actually my favorite is because the task of building a bridge through the Underworld is very long and tedious.

2 Eater of Worlds

It doesn't matter if its weak of strong but it a awesome boss

I love this boss just because he has what I think is the best boss design in the game.

Your right he is easy but still prepare your self

This boss is really weak. I’ve defeated it like 5 times. But I like it because it gives you shadowscale and demonite. - Hermione_Granger220

3 Eye of Cthulhu

I like this boss because when you first fight him, he's really tough. But later, he's easy. - Garfieldtop10s

It's so easy I think

Bows work best on the eye of cthulhu, just saying - amenyoussef

It’s actually easy to defeat once you have good weapons and armor. I used my diamond staff to kill it. - Hermione_Granger220

4 The Twins

Hardest boss in the game, I can beat skeleton prim pretty easily and with a possessed hatchet planters is no problem, and even the golem is easy, but these guys always give me a big challenge.

These guys serve up quite a challenge even with vampire knives. Very fun but tough fight. - Garfieldtop10s

Awesome Boss. Two twin eyes that shoot lasers and fire! Nothing as awesome as these two! - Victinimon

A: It's fun to battle.
B: They are one of the hardest bosses.
C: The music is pretty lit.

5 Skeletron

Skeletron was a really fun boss to beat and I enjoyed every second of defeating him!

The gatekeeper to the dungeon and a personal favorite of mine. - Garfieldtop10s

He's hard and since I like challenge, he is my Favourite boss, he also looks cool!

When I’m in a multiplayer server I troll people sometimes by summoning it right before 4:30am then he destroys everyone

6 The Destroyer

I like the glowing spots on its body, really let's you know you are fighting a powerful beast. - Garfieldtop10s

It's a stronger version of the eater of worlds

He's so fun fight in my apinion more so than the eater of worlds just my opinion

I really like the Destroyer, personally my favourite boss (on this list). The Destroyer was the one boss that I had extreme difficulty with. I ended up making a massive bridge of wooden platforms and fighting him there, that got him. If you're having trouble but have beaten the other two bosses, use hallowed repeater with jester arrows. Chews through his health.
My personal top 10 (10 being worst)
10: Skeletron Prim (he was easy)
9: Brain of Cthulhu
8: Wall of Flesh
7: Duke Fishron
6: Moon Lord
5: Golem
4: The Twins
3: Plantera
2: The Destroyer
1: BETSY! (Yes, Old One's Army boss counts)
Oh also, apart from the Moon Lord, Duke Fishron is the hardest boss in the game. Hardest non-boss is the Solar Pillar because of those stupidly over-powered Crawltipedes. They deal about 100 damage with tank Beetle armour and all Warding accessories!

7 Plantera

Actually not a very hard boss. I can crush Plantera with my endgame equipment but the Mech Bosses still are challenging. That said, it's an intense fight, especially in Phase 2.

Possibly the toughest boss in the game. I like battling it. It fills me with nervousness and fear, but also power. - Garfieldtop10s

Drops unique and sweet items and is a challenge so it's a Intense and fun battle.

I died in the first five seconds and exploded.

8 Skeletron Prime

Don't know how this guy was on here. He uses plenty of gadgets to try to cut you, burn you, explode you, and countless other ways. - Victinimon

Upgraded version of skeletron. He has more attacks than normal, and is just feeling awesome!

This guy looks like Donald trump

His attacks in normal mode are comedically easy to dodge, where to the point that I can deferat it with Palladium armor - Charmedyeti

9 Moon Lord

It was so hard, my brother and my friend were both playing Terraria, and it was so hard they both had to fight. AND they had cheated and got the best stuff on a server and it was still hard.

Final boss ultimate challenge EXTREMELY challenging at first but easy with post pillar or post moon lord weapons and armour

I have not fought him, but what I seen he is very tough and drops stuff that can kill bosses in about one hit!

I mean come one, it's a killer robot skull with 4 deadly weapons. HE HAS A CHAINSAW!

10 Queen Bee

Only boss I'm sure of about the gender

I think its easily fun like boss who gives extreme( in easy mode) good items.

A relatively easy boss and very fun to battle. - Garfieldtop10s

Just stand in honey
when you're fighting it

The Contenders

11 Duke Fishron

I thought that this was a very unique and challenging late game boss. It will take you a few tries to learn his attack pattern and he drops some of the best items in the game. His design is also amazing. The coolest looking boss in my opinion. I only wish he was a little bigger. That size doesn't make him look menacing enough

This was the coolest boss in Terraria for me and my friends, I personally like the idea of a pig dragon shark hybrid!

The drops are awesome, but it's pretty tough to beat him.

It took so long. Me and my cousin were instantly dying and had to work really hard to get the truffle worms. Until finally one day, fully prepared with terra blade, vampire knives (my personal favourite), spectre staff, and frost hydra. When he went into his second form we were both still on golden hearts. We then quickly got him on extremely low hearts but then I died. So did my cousin. But he didn’t despawn. He flew straight to me and I hit him a few times with my terra blade and he died. We were screaming. But all we got... was a bubble gun

12 Brain of Cthulhu

I like how you have to kill these tiny orb guys before you fight the boss. Very fun fight. - Garfieldtop10s

V 1 Comment
13 Ocram

Once again killed him on the first try - Katekat123

It's like the almighty on terraria

Coolest boss ever, I like doing parkoar stunts to avoid the lasers like a boss, he's pretty hard though

Three Words: EPIC AWESOME OVERPOWERED (I don't care that he's weaker than Duke Fishron.)

14 Goblin Army

Goblins hit like a truck.

This isn't a boss. It's a really easy Pre Hardmode event.

It’s not that hard actually. - Hermione_Granger220

So ez

15 Pirate Invasion

I enjoy fighting this group of scalliwags that serve a plate of challenge. - Garfieldtop10s

16 Lepus

U idiots, tell me straight in the eye that you thing bunny's awesome, even if it's trying to kill you.

It's a fat cute bunny

This boss will be hard if you are very slow at terraria, because he spreads more bunnys

HE JUST WONT DIE! ~Thijminecraft02

17 Lunatic Cultist

Well... this is honestly lower on the list than I had thought. Sure, it's pretty easy. But the fight us FUN. That and it's awesome design make this the best boss for me.

Awesome boss

Best - Orlemley

18 Goblin Invasion

Easy, but super fun! I like how you can kind of control whether you want it to randomly happen, as you have to break a crimson heart/shadow orb to even let it spawn.

19 Lunar Event

I don't play Terraria, but this is how I think it works.
The Lunatic Cultist is killed. Celestial creatures from planets hidden in the Solar System invade Earth as their king's defeat angers them. The Vortex pillar can pull you in, and summons ranged enemies. The Stardust pillar doesn't attack directly, but summons creatures which will summon more creatures. The Nebula pillar doesn't attack directly either, but summons magical, mystical enemies. And the Solar pillar, which appears the hardest, honestly, can shoot meteorites down and summons melee enemies. Each pillar must have 100/150 of their enemies destroyed before being able to be attacked. Once the last pillar is killed, a message says "IMPENDING DOOM APPROACHES..."
Maybe you're wearing your best armor now and wielding your best weapon now, or perhaps you run back home one last time to gather your stuff. Otherwise, once you are ready, wait for the minute-countdown to come to an end. The final boss, the Moon Lord, is here. ...more

Before the moon lord but hard

Best boss ever

Because this is a future boss and you are fighting the moon I think this boss will be as harder than somthing like duke fishron, plantera or ocram

20 Turkor the Ungrateful


21 Golem

He's very easy if you have endgame gear (I expected him to be much harder) but he's still a pretty cool and well-executed boss fight.

He's easier with weapons that you already defeated him with. My possessed hatchet does 154 damage

Pretty easy boss, but hard to beat without friends playing with you.

Nice boss, and soundtrack

22 Pumpking

Not quite my favorite boss, but definitely up there because of a few simple things. He isn't the only thing you're worrying about here, far from it, and when you get far enough in, there can be over a dozen of him!

23 Betsy

Really fun to fight

A really hard boss to fight instantly but it drops my 3th favorite item (
Sky Dragon's Fury) really good combination of the Electrosphere Launcher and the
Sleepy Octopod spining attack and with better and better loot (this is Introduced in 1.3.4 from the game Dungeon Defender 2)

24 King Slime

Fun, a very fun and easy boss. It's a nice surprise when he randomly shows up.

He adorable


25 Frost Legion
26 Pumpkin Moon

A very challenging event but has some great loot.

27 Everscream

Drops razorpine, most op magic weapon pre moonlord

28 Frost Moon
29 Pirates Army
30 Turkor
31 Ice Queen
32 Dungeon Guardian

FUNNEST FIGHT EVER! Ya just whip out a phantasm and an endless quiver, and spend 5 minus in pure bliss. (You have to be decent at dodging though)

He has like 2000 HP and deals 1000 damage per hit. The best time to kill him is before 1.3 update. The best way is to use 3 Turtle Armor equipped players and nothing else to defeat him.

It has so mush defense, every attack does 1 damage (and it has 10,000 hp! )

33 Cthulhu

If that’s the case than would that be LoZ MM? Just asking. (I love terraria! )

Its not actually a real boss, but a boss that was gonna be put in but rejected was a replacement of moon lord

I'm not joking either, the moon falling into the world was gonna be the finale before moon lord came into place

34 Solar Pillar

Maybe this isn't considered a boss, but it sure is hard to fight.

35 Pirate Captain

He can shoot you with a gun and has lots of health. Plus he has lots of pirates with him!

36 Santa NK1


37 Ogre
38 Paladin

He has a lot of defense and health for a dungeon mob,but he drops the best boomerang in the game!
