Top 10 Video Game Boss Themes

tonyb500
The best boss themes from games that I've played...except one cause although I've never played the game, the song's hilarious.

The Top Ten

1 Dark Bowser - Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story

It deserve to be number one, this was the first time Nintendo tried to do a tragic music for the final boss and the result is absolutely perfect!

Its called in the final and it is the most epic song ever!

You just can't deny it

Best song ever.

2 Zero Two - Kirby 64

Gets you so pump. Should be in the top 3 not 6. And for some reason it makes me think about my life. Hmm mysterious.. Any way I prefer this version to the Super smash bros brawl version. This song deserves to be at least 2.

ZERO TWO IS THE MOST EPICEST AWESOMEST BUTT KICKING BOSS IN THE UNIVERSES OF THE LIVING! HE IS JUST PLAINLY PLAIN EPIC! DON'T WORRY ZERO TWO MY FUTURE HUSBAND I GOT YER BACK DUDE NOW STEP OFF IF YOU EVEN ARE GOING TO MOCK ZERO TWO IF YOU DO YOU WILL NEVER LIVE TO SEE THIS DAY AGAIN! THIS IS WAR OVER ZERO TWO SO YOU CAN TURN BACK AND AGREE TO MY OPINION ( WHICH IS A FACT) AND FORGET THAT THIS EVER HAPPENED! DEAL? DEAL! KNUCKLES WHA BAM

Zero's theme is beautiful, but dark. Also, C.R.O.W.N.E.D. from Kirby's Return to Dream Land should be on this list.

This theme is the best. You can hear this theme for hours. This theme should be number 1.

3 Final Bowser - Super Mario Galaxy 2

This song is so... Amazing! It sums up your whole adventure and ends it by fighting a giant dragon turtle flying through space and knocking meteors into his face! If that's not awesome, then who are you

This is the most amazing final boss theme in any mario game, screw that, any NINTENDO game ever.

yes please

4 Dancing Mad - Final Fantasy VI

18 minutes of pure amazement, including great use of the organ, and that Kefka laughter

Better than one winged angel just saying - Trikilla3

Have 4 phases. All of them could be #1! -

5 The Great Mighty Poo - Conker's Bad Fur Day The Great Mighty Poo - Conker's Bad Fur Day

Laugh out loud this song is just really funny. The game's developers clearly had a good sense of humor. Sadly, never played the game but thanks to YouTube I was able to hear this hilarious gem.

I didn't think that many people even knew about this game I love it especally the sunflower that flashes - SexySiren666

I;ve never played the game, but I saw the battle online, and it's just hilarious! - tonyb500

6 Solaris (Phase 2) - Sonic the Hedgehog 2006

The best theme for the best final battle of all saga. Fight with Solaris in the past, present and future with Super Sonic, Super Shadow and Super Silver at the same time is definitively the most epic and dramatic fight.

This game was horrible, but its music was probably the best of any Sonic game. - MKBeast

I cannot believe an overrated game has this music!

Listen to it and be amazed as you fight Solaris as Super Sonic, Super Shadow and Super Silver ^. ^ - Silverbronwyn

7 Megalovania - Undertale

My favorite theme from Undertale. It's epic, fast-paced, it gets you IN THE ZONE! You can tell right from the start that you're gonna have a bad time.

Also from the Halloween Earthbound hack and Homestuck.

This is the most epic boss battle theme I've heard to date

The best boss song out there who won't like it

8 Final Xemnas - Kingdom Hearts 2

The epicness of this boss is so awesome! We have 3 phases of the boss and a few fight in the final fight! The OST with disappeared, A fight to the death, The Darkness of the Unknown are just amazing!

9 Ultimate Koopa - Super Mario 64

10 Shadow Queen - Phase 3 - Paper Mario The Thousand Year Door

Best paper Mario boss theme ever.

The Contenders

11 Jubileus - Bayonetta

The battle was epic and so was the music. - tonyb500

12 Giant Bowser - New Super Mario Bros. Wii V 2 Comments
13 Final Bowser - Super Mario Galaxy
14 Tor - Lji
15 Hopes And Dreams - Undertale

Best Undertale boss theme AND best boss theme ever!

Greatest battle the of all time - izayaorihara

Best Boss Music EVER!

16 A Despair-Filled Farewell - Shadow of the Colossus
17 Gwyn, Lord of Cinder - Dark Souls Gwyn, Lord of Cinder - Dark Souls

This song is arguably the most simple, but effective song of all time. It perfectly shows how Gwyn was reduced from an almighty God, to a hollow shell of one (that said, he's still tough, so don't go easy). This theme plays a very melancholic piano piece as the Chosen Undead faces off against a powerful husk of a god. The icing on the cake was its use in the Soul of Cinder's second phase, as that theme encapsulated the series' bittersweet close, as the Soul taps into Gwyn's power as a last ditch effort to stop you. - MKBeast

18 It Has To Be This Way - Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance

This songs is fast paced and sets a great atmosphere. The lyrics were picked perfectly it is my favourite boss theme.

Senator Armstrong is probably the video game equivalent of Donald Trump

It's one of the best final boss themes I've heard

19 Tabuu - Super Smash Bros. Brawl V 2 Comments
20 Red - Pokemon Gold & Silver

This Song Is The Best Battle In Gaming Universe And Best Theme In The Universe. I Give For That 99.6 Or 100 For This Theme, That's Based Of That Are Champion!
