Top Ten Worst Super Mario Bosses

Mario is not known for strong bosses, but there are downright awful boss characters which exist.

The Top Ten

1 Bowser Jr. (New Super Mario Bros) Bowser Jr., or sometimes simply Jr., is a video game character who appears in Nintendo's Mario franchise as the secondary antagonist. He is the youngest son of the series' primary antagonist, Bowser.

Just spam fireballs at him or ground pound him a few times.

I agree but the most trollest part of it is get the blue shell powerup and literally slide like a koopa shell which stuns him

Repetetive, bland and beated for almost 20 times. - DaisyandRosalina

For the first fight, you can just spam the fire flower! Of course I added this! - DCfnaf

2 Cloud N Candy (Yoshi's Story)

I thought King Bomb-omb was bad...seriously,this guy can't even hurt you! and you defeat him by just standing there and licking him.

3 King Boo (Super Mario Sunshine) King Boo is the leader of all the Boos, and the main antagonist in both Luigi's Mansion and Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon.

Why'd they have to make his design so WEIRD? I like how they make it a casino theme, because it reminds me of Oogie Boogie (from Nightmare before Christmas) but STILL. Also the noises he make are so annoying.

The boss is on a roulette wheel of a casino. King Boo has a slot machine that spits out fruit and you need to throw a red hot chili pepper in his mouth. The fight is long, painfully dull, makes no sense, and is poor. - DCfnaf

My Theory Is That King Boo Was Drunk In Sunshine Even Though The Game Is Rated E - JPK

4 Whomp King (Super Mario 64)

He's basically a Whomp that can be hit three times. - DCfnaf

5 King Ka-Thunk (Super Mario 3D World)

This is a BARELY improved version of King Whomp from Super Mario 64. (As well as Super Mario Galaxy 2, but putting HIM in that game was pointless.) This boss is too simple, it has a lazy design, and it has an overused boss technique: Hitting its back. Aka his weak spot. It's obvious they're running out of ideas for creative bosses...

6 Bowser (Super Mario Bros)

Repetitive, not real boss battle. Apparently Bowser's goal to beat you is put an axe at the end of the bridge and have lava under the bridge. FIRE BOWSER'S INTERIOR DECORATOR! - DCfnaf

7 Boom Boom (New Super Mario Bros U)
8 Megasparkle Goomba (Paper Mario: Sticker Star)
9 Baby Bowser (Yoshi's New Island)

When he jumps up and down, the platforms never go into the lava, so it can't hurt you. Completely pointless.

10 Giga Lakitu (Super Mario Galaxy 2)

You mean King Lakitu

The Contenders

11 Bowser (New Super Mario Bros. 2)


Everything from nsmb2 was lazy. nintendo just gives you all the money they earned from making games.

12 The Big Boo (Super Mario World)

I sometimes forget this boss existed. He doesn't even cause damage to the player.

Lame Secret Boss - JPK

13 Antasma (Tutoria)

Seriously? This fight plays the Semifinal Boss Music! Ugh...

14 Bonechill (Super Paper Mario)

He Was Decent - JPK

15 Bowser (Super Mario Galaxy 2) 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.


16 Bowser (Super Mario Sunshine)

You don’t even get to touch him.
