Top 10 Worst Boss Battles In Video Games


The Top Ten

1 Hawksmoor - Ghost Hunter
2 Alien Queen - Aliens: Colonial Marines
3 Sekto - Oddworld Abe's Oddysee

Before you actually get to fight Sekto you have to battle the two squid like creatures who just attack you relentlessly never allowing you any chance to move out of the way to recover if you actually manage to beat them you fight Sekto which is way easier than the previous fight which is a relife considering how much a pain in the butt the first battle was but still huge let down. - egnomac

Don't you mean Stranger's Wrath? Abe had nothing to do with the game Sekto was in.

4 Jaron Namir - Deus Ex
5 Steroid Joker - Batman: Arkham Asylum

All of the boss battles prior to this were unique and authentic but by the time you get to the final battle the game just turns the Joker into a hulking monster which is just doesn't fit very well to the Joker's character. - egnomac

Just didn't seem like something that the jkoker would do... - HeavyDonkeyKong


6 Rodrigo Borgia - Assassins Creed II Rodrigo Borgia - Assassins Creed II
7 Bowser - Super Mario Sunshine Bowser - Super Mario Sunshine 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 more.

A disappointing battle considering how hard it was to get to it All Mario does is use the the rocket F.L.U.D.D. to send you to the air and ground pound to bring down the arena while Bowser does very little to stop you. - egnomac

And Princess Peach gets very furious at Mario for having a hard time defeating Bowser in this game. Super Mario 64 (N64), Super Mario Sunshine's predecessor is at least the top 2 best video game of all time, just behind Pac-Man World (PS1). I have an extremely strong taste of video games.

It was good, but all you do is use flood. I prefer the other boss battles in te game! - HeavyDonkeyKong

8 Golemech - Star Fox 64

All he does is run away while he summons columns which can easily be avoided. - egnomac

9 Silver the Hedgehog - Sonic the Hedgehog (2006) Silver the Hedgehog - Sonic the Hedgehog (2006)

The best strategy is to stay away from him until he says how about this and picks tables and chairs then hit him with a homing attack or a spinning attack repeat this until he's defeated

"i don't feel like it was designed for me to beat it" words to live by

This AWESOME character was almost ruined in the boss battle.

Silver the Hedgehog is bar none my favorite sonic character but this fight is just OH GOD. when he uses his telepathic thing that makes you float in the air attack you have a 95% of being screwed.

10 Goht - The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask

All you do is roll at him as Goron link as he runs around the arena. - egnomac

The Contenders

11 No, No, No - Radiation's Halloween Hack
12 Uroboros Wesker - Resident Evil 5
13 Queen Slug-For-A-Butt - Earthworm Jim

Aim and shoot, aim and shoot.

14 Spring Man - Mega Man 7
15 Negative Man - Mother 3

He does literally nothing except blind you with his low self-esteem and that does nothing. EASY

16 Mettaton Neo - Undertale

I bet you could poke him with a stick and he would explode.


Just like Mysterio from Spider-Man 2.You expect an intense and epic boss,then when you attack the boss,they just die instantly.This is an Undertale boss you could beat with a blindfold on.

17 Heavy Press - Cave Story
18 Lorithia - Xenoblade Chronicles
19 Polygon Man - PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale

Easy battle, constant dialogue, and an overall disappointing end to a disappointing game. - ConnorTheUndying

Extremely easy boss.

20 Bed of Chaos - Dark Souls Bed of Chaos - Dark Souls

If a boss is so bad that the devs apologize for making it, you know they messed up pretty bad. - MKBeast

This boss, this boss was one of the reasons dark souls 3 is my favourite souls game. There were a few other reasons but this one is the biggest. Terrible design, its almost like the origanal version of the old iron king from ds2. If you never played ds2 or ds let me explain, the bed of chaos's main way of killing you is to swat you into holes in the floor killing you instantly. That is not how a boss should be designed. You know its bad because the devs apperantly acctually appologized for this disgrace of a boss. This boss should have been called ceaseless discharge (aka unending load)

21 Wily Capsule - Mega Man 7
22 Spoiled Rotten - Wario Land 4
23 Balrog (First Fight) - Cave Story
24 Electrocutioner - Batman Arkham Origins

This man goes down in one hit this should be in the top 5. I expected a good fight yet the fight was trash.

25 Mysterio - Spider-Man 2

Holy,He Has So Much HP! This is Gonna Be Such an Epic Showdown--Oh,He's Dead. DAMNIT GAME! I Know I Haven't Played This,But You Can Clearly See How Bad it is By Watching it.One Punch and The Master of Illusions is Down.Seriously This Guy Has Put Up Way Better Fights Than This!
