Top 10 Easiest Bosses in Gaming

Wait… that’s it? Welcome to WatchMojo.com and today we are counting down our picks for the top ten easiest boss fights in gaming.

For this list, we’ll be looking at the boss fights that proved to be no challenge at all, resulting in some pretty forgettable encounters.

#10: Papu Papu
“Crash Bandicoot” (1996)

Granted, the first boss isn’t meant to be all that hard, more of a way to spice things up and give insight into what’s to come. That being said, Papu Papu might as well be just another generic enemy given how easy it is to take him down. All he does is sweep his stick along the floor in a very predictable manner, leaving Crash plenty of room to jump up and give him a face full of spin. Given how Crash is all about jumping and spinning, Papu Papu was a walk in the park.

#9: Death
“Dante’s Inferno” (2010)

You would have thought that the grim reaper would be rather high on the list when it came to challenging contenders for a boss fight, what with being able to literally snatch the souls out of people and all. Apparently Dante is the one exception, as he’s not only able to stave off Death, but actually…kill it? Is that even possible? Regardless, thanks to his move-set being easy to block and parry, it’s no wonder that Dante was able to steal his scythe and rip him a new one. Worst, reaper, ever.

#8: Shocker
“Ultimate Spider-Man” (2005)

Spider-Man has a huge roster of villains to choose from, doubly so given how many incarnations exist of each one. In this instance, the Shocker gets the rough end of the stick as far as villain incarnations are concerned in both the game and the Ultimate comics. So much so that he gets reduced to nothing more than a tutorial on how to use Spidey’s web-shooters. Throw in the fact he goes down after three shots of webbing and the whole fight is over in the blink of an eye. Thwip thwip (womp womp).

#7: Killer Croc
“Batman: Arkham Asylum” (2009)

Don’t get us wrong, this entire section out of the first entry in the Arkahm franchise was drowning in atmosphere. After getting a prior glimpse to the size and stature of the monstrous Killer Croc, heading deep into his lair filled many of us with dread. It’s just a shame much of that potency was lost after we figured out it only took a batarang to get him off our tail. Given how there’s no actual combat in this boss fight, it’s a simple case of rinse and repeat until the oversized gator is taken down for good.

#6: Old King Coal
“Banjo-Tooie” (2000)

The Grubby Boiler Monarch may look imposing when put up against our favourite feathered and fluffy duo, but then the fight starts, its clear this king isn’t worth his crown. Essentially, if you come armed with ice eggs, then the battle is already won. Even as he fills the landscape with lava, as long as you keep peppering him with projectiles it won’t be long until his limbs start to fall off. This guy is the definition of “all sizzle, but no steak.”

#5: King Dodongo
“The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time” (1998)

Link has no shortage of larger than life bosses across his landmark franchise, so it’s to be expected that over the years there have been a few who have fallen well under par. Our pick of the litter? The infernal dinosaur who doesn’t seem too concerned when you throw an endless amount of bombs into its mouth. With a habit of trying to inhale the Hero of Hyrule, it leaves us plenty of time to grab another bomb and toss it down its gullet. Another king bites the dust.

#4: 343 Guilty Spark
“Halo 3” (2007)

Don’t get us wrong, we were more than happy to blow this little ball of mechanical garbage to kingdom come. Not only was it annoying as hell, but then went all psycho and killed Johnson! You bet we were up for revenge. What we didn’t expect was for said revenge to be so easy. Not only are its attacks weak and easy to avoid, you’re armed with your very own Spartan Laser. Land three charged burst and its goodbye to the annoying little monitor. We certainly don’t feel guilty about ending him.

#3: Gary
“Bully” (2006)

This was it, time to beat the snot out of the sociopath that ruined our reputation and made high school even more of a living hell. As expected, Gary loves the sound of his own voice, piling on the insults and ridicule while praising how much of a genius he is while we made our way to the final confrontation. After so much bragging, he had more than earned a knuckle sandwich, except we don’t get to really enjoy it, since after exchanging a few punches he does down hard. Not that we expected anything else, but come on! At least let us revel in the beatdown!

#2: Big Bob-omb
“Super Mario 64” (1996)

As any seasoned Mario fan will tell you, when you see those sentient bombs starting to shake, you had better run for it because they make quite the boom. Going up against one of such substantial size should provide some sort of challenge, or at least make us worry about the size of the inevitable explosion. No such luck here. All you need to do to end this big guy is flip over him, pick him up, and throw him three times, which will lead to a rather disappointing bang. Wa-hoo indeed.

#1: Cloud N Candy
“Yoshi’s Story” (1997)


If there’s one thing that Yoshi is known for, its letting loose that tongue of his. You’d have thought any enemy with an aversion to said tongue would stay far away, but oh no, not this puffy fella. Stating that it can’t be licked, Yoshi then proceeds to, what else, lick it to death. It’s almost comical that in around thirty seconds the candy cloud fades out of existence after only a few licks. Well, we hoped Yoshi enjoyed his snack, because that was an utter breeze for us.
