Here are our favourite final bosses – a mixture of the most iconic, challenging, and atmospheric fights that brought our favourite games to a close.

1. Bowser – Super Mario Bros.

Although this boss fight may not be the most spectacular on the list, the original Bowser boss fight has a special place in our hearts as the original showdown that sparked one of the greatest rivalries in gaming history.

2. Sephiroth – Final Fantasy VII

The silver-haired evildoer is incredibly tough to beat here as he is capable of inflicting just about every status ailment in the game, in addition to summoning a meteor that destroys every planet in the solar system before landing on the heads of our heroes. Talk about overkill.

3. Gerhman – Bloodborne

After slaying giant werewolves, hordes of crazed spiders, and eldritch monstrosities that even Lovecraft couldn’t dream up, the final boss of Bloodborne turns out to be none-other than the seemingly-harmless old man who had served as your guide as the warden of the Hunter’s Dream.

4. Jubileus – Bayonetta

The sheer audacity of Bayonetta’s final boss earns Jubileus The Creator a spot on this list. This epic battle flings you to the edges of the universe, as you use all your Umbran Witch skills to take down the corrupted deity.

5. Ganon – The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Final bosses - TLOZ

It wouldn’t be a final boss list without an appearance from Link’s arch-nemesis. Calamity Ganon from Breath of the Wild is without a doubt the largest-scale Ganon boss fight the series has yet to produce, forcing the player to utilise every skill and tool in their arsenal to achieve victory.
