EXP: ScrewAttack's Top 10 Worst Zelda Bosses

ScrewAttack's Top 10 Worst Zelda Bosses

No franchise is all sunshine and rainbows when it comes to large enemies that want you to die. These are Zelda's biggest offenders!

Odolwa is pronounced 'Oh-Doll-Wah'!! He says it while attacking you, so no excuses for getting that wrong!!

This list fails itself for one very important reason: True Zelda gamers pull a Schrodinger's Cat and deny the very existence of the Zelda CD-i games, thus erasing them from existence.

The real number one is the Blob boss in the Windfish Egg sequence from Link's Awakening. He does nothing, scatters into bits when you hit him with your sword, and gets killed by being sprinkled with fairy powder three times. Fae'est boss EVAR!!!

At least the Chu Chu is not an annoying boss to fight. I would call the imprisoned much more annoying, plus you need to fight it three time! I think I am the only one that didn't really like Ghirahim fights. First time was cool, but I would of rather seen big awesome bosses at the end of the first and sixth dungeon instead of seeing him both times. Maybe if they made him a boss outside of the temples I would have been happier.

So I'm confused, is this primarily a Nintendo channel or is it just the two additional decades that Nintendo has on MS/Sony that lends to its prominent use in top ten game stuff? (I've been enjoying these lists, just wondering if it's supposed to be so Nintendo centric)

His final form doesn't even have an original theme; just the mini-boss theme. So lame.

Also, show of hands: who here disagrees with Moldorm being a bad boss? It was annoying, but much more memorable than "Swat my eyes with your sword/bow" Vitreous or "Just put a bomb where my mouth is while I'm stunned to damage me again" Dodongo Worms.

Now I remember why I don't watch these.

I absolutely agree with the Imprisoned being an annoying boss fight, and you have to fight it three times, or more if you want the Hylian Shield. Moldorm was annoying, but I wouldn't call it bad. I really like the Gyrog fight though.

Oh come ON. The CD-I Zeldas are totally inadmissible for this list, not because I deny their existence (tempting as that may be) but because they are just really bad games. All the other Zeldas were awesome games that still had massive missteps with some boss designs.

You dare bring the CD-i to my lair! You must DIE!

ummmm i find the lack of Puppet Gannon in the list disturbing.

His third phase is like Moldorm but so so much worse. Giant snake with totally random movement just like Moldorm. But THIS time its in 3D and you dont damage him by hitting his tail with your swaord, but by shooting it with light arrows. Better still is that you can't lock on to his week point with the arrows so even if you can get a clear shot you then have to press and hold z to go into scope mode so that you can MANUALLY AIM AT BOSS MOVING 4X YOU SPEED. Oh and did i mention you have a finite amount of mana with which to fire these light arrows. I hate that fight so very very much.

MAH BOI...
ignoring the CD-i games is what all reasonable/sane people strive for D:

also that reminded me that I still need to play skyward sword

I really should have seen the number one spot coming. But I didn't for whatever reason. X(

But yeah, as cool as the Imprisoned fight was the first time, it got old kinda quick the second and third time.

Really? I liked him the most in that game (besides the final fight because that was just epic) because he was the only boss that was even a little bit challenging. I felt like a badass when I was dodging out of the way of that fast moving snake and then getting the bullseye to kill him.

How DARE you insult the greatness that is Tentalus? I have never had more fun in a boss fight then when I fought her. My roommates and I tried to cut her hair in various styles. I made her beautiful. And then I destroyed her.

Also Gyorg is a dumb name but I thought the fight was pretty fun; had to get those dolphin leaps down.

But Moldorm can go die in his own stupid hole. Then climb the stairs and do it again.

Tearing apart the CD-i games is like beating up a cripple, it's not fair and it isn't fun to watch. In fact most people don't consider those canon.

Well it is called ScrewAttack. No actually it's not Nintendo centric, it just features more Nintendo stuff than this site usually does.

Sorry. The CD-I games will be around.

Forever.

They will never go away.

just wondering, where's the NES zelda's. c'mon zelda 2 dark link (super cheap with crouch-stab or merciless without) or Zelda 1 Gleeok (4 heads that turn into ghost heads and you cant block the fire with the magic shield) REdiculous

like that weird stain on the wall caused by unmentionable fluids :C

Gotta say, I really enjoyed some of these bosses. I think you've made an error in implying that A Link To The Past or Majora's Mask have flaws.

can you get someone with a less annoying voice to do these vids? hell get Lisa over here.....dont get Jim to help.
