Top Ten Worst Zelda Bosses

#10, Calamity Ganon/Dark Beast Ganon from Breath of the Wild: As the big bad of the latest Legend of Zelda game it is unfortunate to say he was not as to be expected of the Great King of Evil. In the first phase you face an amalgamation of all of the former Blight Ganon's, which gives it a nice higher level of difficulty then simply facing just one of the blights attacks but unfortunately it is nothing you haven't seen already. In the second phase you face Dark Beast Ganon, a massive monstrous boar created of pure hatred and malice. But beyond taking a few stops or unleashing a blast of power he does little and instead of an epic last stand with a being who nearly destroyed the entirety of Hyrule it is a step down to a basic archery challenge.

#9, Jalhalla from The Windwaker: Coming from the era of The GameCube, Jalhalla is one of the main bosses of the game, making his domain the Earth Temple. He is the leader of the Poes, a ghost like race. He Is a large chubby figure with a mask who carries a lantern, when stunned using the Mirror Shield and thrown into the spiky walls he breaks down into many Smaller Poes. Being it as you can spam the Mirror Shield and consistently freeze him unfortunately he is an easy boss. Coming from the Earth Temple, a dark pit filled with all kinds of under monstrosities it is unfortunate the big baddie himself was such a pushover.

#8, King Dodongo from Ocarina of Time: The Dodongo's are a dinosaur like race from the Loz Series,making his home in Dodongo's Cavern he is the final boss. He is a massive Dodongo with the ability to breathe fire, roll himself into a ball and crush anything in its path. Despite being a King he is fairly easy to beat, when inhaling for a bout of fire breath just throw a bomb into his open maul and watch it blow him up from the inside. While he can punish you if given the chance his attacks are far too telegraphed for them to be of any surprise, while first glance he is a massive and powerful creature he is still little more then a brutish animal. Easily taken down.

#7, Fraaz from Spirit Tracks: Fraaz is the Master of Icy Fire, two beings with the power of fire and ice combined, usually having several powers increases your chance of a successful win but not when facing the Hero of Trains. When Fraaz uses his power of fire or ice you simply have to use the boomerang to use the opposite power to temporary down Fraaz. When the two pedestals which hold the fire and ice are destroyed you then have to use the fire and ice from the separated Fraaz to deal damage, Twinrova had a similar attack method but they pulled it off with better dodging and more powerful magic. So unfortunately the Master of Icy Fire is not that masterful of it in the end.

#6, Big Green Chuchu from Minish Cap: Sometimes even the weakest enemy can be a large threat when much larger then the protagonist, venturing into one of the dungeons as a Minish Sized Link you must face the boss of the dungeon. A Green Chuchu. A sentient blob of jelly. While normally an easy kill the size difference makes this ordinary blob into a Kaiju sized threat, though it is the same size you have just shrunk. Using the item you received from the dungeon you must vacuum the base of the Chuchu to throw off its balance and then strike it when it falls. Beyond jumping and the like its repertoire of attacks is nonexistent, the only thing making it a threat is its larger size. But when the game is based around shrinking to a bug like size making an ordinarily easy to beat enemy a boss is quite interesting.

#5, Fyrus from Twilight Princess: Fyrus is a corrupted Goron, when searching into a problem in The Goron Mines he was corrupted by The Fused Shadow. Now this creature with rock-hard skin now has the power of fire. Unfortunately it doesn't make it any harder to defeat. With the jewel on his forehead being able to shoot fire and a constant aura of fire on his body one must shoot the jewel on his forehead then grab the chains that had previously bonded him to the walls then trip him. Much like many of the bosses who have power over fire all that was needed was to keep his distance until he could rush in and attack the corrupted one with his blade.

#4,Gyorg from Majora's Mask: Stationed at The Great Bay Temple, this massive fish patrols the waters with only a small platform to keep you out of the water. This fish can spit out many smaller fishes to attack Link when he is in the water or jump onto the platform to try and crush Link. Down below in the water their are mines, when Gyorg attempts to inhale you Link must try and instead get it to inhale the mines. Much like King Dodongo with the bombs. In the Nintendo 64 version there were several ways you could attack. The Zora's Mask, bows and boomerangs but in the remake they dwindled it down alot. Beyond its intimidating size and appearance it doesn't have much going for it.

#3, The Imprisoned Hyrule Warriors: Much like in its Twilight Princess main story the Imprisoned shows up as a giant boss in Hyrule Warriors, though unlike in its main story it is far easier to deal with in Hyrule Warriors. The Imprisoned is a large scaled Kaiju like creature with a massive mouth full of giant teeth. It's only real method of attack is the rays of power it will shoot out of its feet as it stomps around later in the fights. Unlike in Twilight Princess where you must fight it three times to stop it from getting out of its hole in Hyrule Warriors the only main objective is to defeat it. Beyond the shock-waves of energy it shoots out of its feet and its massive size able to inflict damage if it comes into contact with you it is a unimpressive easy boss to defeat. You would think as the power sealed form of Demise a powerful Demon King he would be more powerful and intimidating but alas that is not the case.

#2, Gohma from Wind Waker: Gohma tends to get the short end of the stick when it comes to power since often it is the first boss, but undoubtedly in Wind Waker it gets the best entrance and impressive look. Looking much like a cross between a scorpion and a centipede covered in almost steel plate like armor you must fight it in the center of a volcanoes core. It rests in a pool of Lava and is invulnerable to damage until you use the grappling hook to swing from the tale of a dragon to send the ceiling crashing down upon it. Three times of doing that and its armor is destroyed and you can proceed to grapple its massive eye to deal damage. The bad part is that you can swing from the tale and send the roof crashing down three times without any resistance from Gohma, adding onto the ledges where you can avoid being attacked high on the sides it means that despite its awesome and fearsome look Gohma cannot do anything but watch.

#1, Tentalus from Skyward Sword: The Abyssal Leviathan is a great name, unfortunately it does not live up to it. First attacking the ship Link is on with its massive tentacle it is like the Kraken has come to destroy the ship and drag Link to the bottom of the sea. When laying eyes upon it the first time well, it is a major disappointment. A chubby purple creature with dreadlocks and one massive eye it does not live up to the hype that had proceeded its appearance. Wit a large obvious glowing weak point of the large eye its a fairly simple fight. While the area you fight it on, a ship amidst a stormy sea is an appropriate place to fight an Abyssal Leviathan its looks and simplicity leave much to be desired.
