Top 10 Zelda Bosses
The Zelda series knows how to do its boss fights, but only these ten outshine all the rest!
My experience with the final boss from Skyward Sword was sorta similar to Nicks's in Ocarina of Time since I didn't realize that you too could use the lightning. Instead I beat him up close and personal using timed blocks and careful strikes.
Nick, my biggest problems with your list is that you are using Dark Link who is a) a mini-boss in OoT and therefore should not qualify among the top 10. He should be placed in a top 10 mini-bosses. Furthermore he can be easily defeated with Din's Fire, so that is one reason I disagree with him among the top 10 mini-bosses. Next, I do not think Uncle Rupee deserves a spot because technically he is not from a Zelda game, but a spin-off title. Third, I think you cheated with number 1 because you used 2 bosses and Ganondorf from The Wind Waker is already on the list. I can agree that Ganon from OoT (N64/GCN version is among the most epic final boss fights), but having Ganondorf as well o the list is kind of pushing it. I have been playing the Zelda titles for more than 17 years (A Link to the Past is still my favorite title to this day), and after completing a 3 Heart run on OoT, Ganondorf was nothing but a clichéd battle that had bad camera angles and timing difficulties. Personally I think Majora's Mask would have a better spot as he takes on 3 forms and they consecutive battles. After defeating Ganondorf, you battle a few enemies in between. Also why are Moldarach and Armogohma not on the list? The latter is much more epic than Queen Gohma (who looks nothing like a spider) (i.e. awesome music, and who could forget crushing a spider with a giant stone) statue. Otherwise I do agree with Stallord and Kolktos on the list, but I think it could be better.
But can we talk about how hot Hylian!Vaati is in Minish Cap?
I thought the best Legend of Zelda boss was Zant from Twilight Princess.
I'm not a big fan of the Zelda series, growing up a sega guy. But this top 10 is awesome! Kinda makes me wanna play these good old games.
he is a pretty fun boss to fight
Stallord is my favorite boss of all time
Minish Cap was actually the first zelda game ive ever past, but then my brother got Ocarina of time for the 3ds nd let me play it and past it in 2 days without break (of course i played while the game was charging) Ganondorf/Ganon was one of the few final bosses that felt so satisfying to beat
The Ghirahim fights would have also been nice to see on this list personally.
glad im not the only one that thinks that
no I think navi is more irritating too
i am probably the only person to say this but i think navi is more annoying than fi
Your use of the f-word makes it seem like you are.
Heck no. Twinmold was an awesome boss fight. Not lame at all.
I agree. There should have been more Majora's Mask bosses on here. Many of them.
i like this list except i think gomess from majoras mask should be on it
I agree with this list. All of it.
He desearves more love.
The saddest part is I have yet to play Skyward Sword. Everything else is very memorable. Nice list, Nick.
