Super Mario is a well-known franchise by Nintendo. The series is the industry since 1981 and from that date number of games were published each featuring some new characters, good, and bad. Because of the game’s simple premise of defeating the game’s bosses in order to complete them, it had produced many unique and interesting villains.

Not all of them can be disposed of easily, some of them can be beaten by a beginner and some require a skilled professional to do that. Keeping that in mind, below is the list of the strongest villains that appeared in several decades-long history, and for which the players will have to give their best to beat them and finish the game.

Updated on October 17th, 2022 by Hodey Johns: With a few more games and some more time to go through the entire series, this seems like a great time to revisit this list. Originally a top eight list, that number has been bumped up to ten because there are too many difficult and iconic villains to leave out. Additionally, each entry has been made clear which game is in question, since the fight in each one is hardly the same from game to game. Bowser, for example, is much different in Super Mario Bros. (the original game) and Bowser’s Fury. Gamers deserve to know which fight exactly makes even experts on the series slam the controller down in frustration.

GAMERANT VIDEO OF THE DAY

10/10 Antasma – Mario & Luigi: Dream Team

Antasma is an evil bat king that first appeared in Mario & Luigi: Dream Team. In the first battle with Mario, Antasma created a ring of Antashmunschies around him and used them as explosives. Before the attack, she will usually eat two Antashmunschies which will give her an increase in attack power. She can also hibernate to restore her health with the assistance of her minions.

Antasma can also transform itself into a group of bats and attack Mario. Her most powerful attack is to clone herself, doubling the workload. Many awesome things have been cut from Super Mario games, players certainly wish Antasma would have been on that list.

9/10 Cackletta – Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga

Cackletta is an evil witch from the Beanbean Kingdom serving as the main antagonist in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga for the Game Boy Advance and its 3DS remake. The series has been around for four decades, gamers should be happy Cackletta has been dropped along the way.

She possesses powers based on psychokinesis and electrokinetics, and in the first battle with Mario, Cackletta attacked him with a lightning bolt, and after that cloned herself to confuse him. In later games, she uses different attacks such as a fireball. She also can create poisonous bats and mimic almost anyone.

8/10 King Boo – Luigi’s Mansion

King Boo is a leader of the Boos and Ghosts, ruler of the paranormal dimensions, and the arch enemy of Luigi. Somehow gaming has found a way to make adorable insects, but ghosts are still terrifying encounters.

King Boo wields an impressive number of magical abilities such as the ability to materialize objects, teleport, and turn invisible. Also, his power increases when he is in the presence of other Boos. In one of the games, he is also shown to have an ability to grow in size. In later games, he is shown to have new more powerful powers such as the ability to open paranormal portals and create illusions.

7/10 Count Bleck – Super Paper Mario

Count Bleck, also known as Lord Blumiere, is an evil count and former member of the Tribe of Darkness that serves as the main antagonist of the Super Paper Mario game. Mario is a video game character that is at least four decades old, thankfully Count Bleck appears to be a thing of the past.

Count Bleck is a dangerous foe and has many abilities at his disposal, such as the ability to teleport himself, speed himself up, and even slow time itself. He can also feely float without any hindrance from gravity. When in battle he will usually use his scepter to conjure the globes of dark magic and hurl them at the opponent.

6/10 Bowser Jr. – Mario Strikes Charged

Bowser Jr. is obviously a son of Bowser and serves as the antagonist in many of the Mario games. He’s one of the characters that has gone through some style changes as Nintendo switches up consoles, but he remains present to some degree.

5/10 Fawful – Superstar Saga

Fawful, also known as the lord Fawful is a Beaneish character known for speaking broken English and making many food-based metaphors. He is quite intelligent but suffers from extreme fits of anger. As the franchise shifted to 3D, players were worried that Fawful could become an even bigger problem.

Fawful often uses his Vacuum Helmet in fights and rocket jets to go around places. He also uses a laser gun. In Superstar Saga, for example, he shoots green balls at Mario and laser beams with his laser gun. In later games, he has high speed and the ability to utilize dark magic.

4/10 Bowser – Super Mario 64

Bowser, also known as King Koopa or King Bowser, is one of the most recognizable Mario characters. There are hardly any fights against him that are easy, but he’s got a particularly nasty appearance in Super Mario 64 that demands total focus and control.

He has a monstrous appearance with dragon-like elements, a full-throated roar, fire-breathing abilities, a cruel personality, and a beastly, reptilian voice. He possesses a number of powerful abilities such as breathing fire and shooting fireballs, which he can even use underwater. Bowser also has remarkable raw physical strength and power, as seen in a number of games.

3/10 Dimentio – Super Paper Mario

2/10 Culex – Super Mario RPG: Legend Of The Seven Stars

While some video game bosses can be beaten in a single attack, others take luck and massive amounts of knowledge. The fight against Culex is an obscure and optional battle in Super Mario RPG: Legend Of The Seven Stars, but it remains harder than even the final boss of that game.

Players will need to initially skip his secret area, then get gear and level up. Even then, they’ll need to unlock and equip trinkets that hamper instant death. Even with perfect gear, Culex will still wipe out members of the party without anything the gamer can do to stop it, so they’ll have to stock up on items and characters who can reverse death.

1/10 Bowser X – Mario & Luigi: Bowser’s Inside Story

To beat Bowser X, gamers will probably have to spend a week of hard gaming, bringing, and practicing. The time investment alone is one thing, but the element of hand-eye coordination is another. Players will need to be sharp to take down Bowser X no matter how well they’ve prepared before the fight.

Fighting Bowser is a boss fight that changes throughout the franchise’s history. This game may be the most unique fight against the legendary King of the Koopas, but it’s also the hardest. Given practice and unlimited time, the Bowser X battle is never easy.
