Les 7 meilleurs boss de jeux de plates-formes sur Super Nintendo !

Among the most popular genres on the Super Nintendo, platform games feature prominently. And what would a great platformer be without cult boss fights? That’s why the JV newsroom brings you a small selection of the best Super NES platformer bosses.


  • ActRaiser
  • Castlevania Dracula X
  • Donkey Kong Country 2: The Search for Diddy’s Kong
  • kirby superstar
  • mega man x
  • Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island
  • super metroid


Among the exclusive Super Nintendo nuggets, ActRaiser occupies an exceptional place due to its original proposal. Mixing platforming action phases and top-down management moments, Enix’s title had also set the mood with its pretty impressive graphics for a game released early in the console’s life. If you’ve never heard of it, you should know that ActRaiser makes you embody a deity who has lost her powers and who must have the help of a little angel to defeat the demon that terrorizes the Earth. If all of this represents the management phases seen from above, we are occasionally drawn down from the skies to confront the infernal hordes ourselves during platforming-action sequences. that make up the other part of the experience.

It is in these moments when we fight bosses and the most iconic in the game is still Gauntlet, simply the final boss. When you reach the final level, you’re greeted by the faces of all the main enemies you’ve defeated before against a dark, torn sky, setting the mood. So before you take on the final bosses, you need to take on all the ones you’ve already beaten again. Finally, we come to Gauntlet, a kind of demon with a strange design, which we face in space through the stars.. A tough and epic fight that makes the victory even more encouraging.

Castlevania Dracula X

If Super Castlevania IV is still the most cult episode on the console, it’s not him we’re talking about today. Instead, we’ll be focusing on Castlevania Dracula X, the port of Castlevania: Rondo of Blood originally released on the PC Engine in 1993. This time we embody Richter Belmont through nine scenarios with the aim of facing Dracula as always. Moreover, it is this fight that we will talk about, since the latter is much more epic than in Super Castlevania IV.

Here we find ourselves in an arena full of holes in which we must jump from platforms hoping to dodge the count’s magical attacks and try to hit him. But that’s not all, because passes a certain stage, Dracula becomes a kind of giant Lucifer with purple skin and huge red wings that cast even more powerful spells. Suffice it to say that it is not given to overcome it. Therefore, it is because of this metamorphosis and the epic music that this fight is particularly memorable.

Donkey Kong Country 2: The Search for Diddy’s Kong

Very clearly, the first Donkey Kong Country is one of the cult games of the Super NES. However, we must not forget that the title had two sequels, Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy’s Kong Quest and Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong’s Double Trouble, which are just as good, if not better. Thus, It is in the second episode that we will dedicate ourselves as the latter is a particularly nice final boss.

With Diddy and Dixie we face King K. Rool with his pirate costume that shoots cannonballs with his blunderbuss that must be returned at the right time. However, the boss has a total of three phases, with different patterns that you have to learn by heart to get ahead. Indeed, his shots change as we advance in the confrontation. A very nice bossfight, more technical than it seems, accompanied by good music that makes the release of Donkey Kong even more satisfying.

kirby superstar

Kirby’s Fun Pak or Kirby Super Star is a rather unusual game. Actually, it is a compilation of seven more or less long mini-games, among which we found a certain Spring Breeze which is in fact a new shortened version of Kirby’s Dream Land, the first episode of the saga released in 1992 on Game Boy. We could have chosen to tell you about the Revenge of Meta Knight minigame where we take on Meta Knight, as the name suggests, but of course it is the final fight against King Dedede in Spring Breeze that we will focus on.

Obviously, Kirby games are not characterized by their difficulty, quite the opposite. These are relatively easy games that stick to the cuteness of the environments on offer. Nevertheless, the fight against King Dedede remains memorable thanks to various elements. First of all, we find ourselves facing this final boss in a kind of boxing ring, with a crowd cheering around it that increases the pressure. Then, the music of the confrontation is very dynamic and forceful, which gives a unique atmosphere to the moment. As for the specific course of the fight, the latter is quite simple since it is enough to dodge King Dedede’s attacks and return his attacks after having swallowed them. Therefore, it is not because of its gameplay but because of its atmosphere that this boss fight is memorable.

mega man x

If we talk about the best bosses in Super NES games, it was obvious that the Mega Man X series was going to appear in this selection. At the same time, the Mega Man formula relies heavily on boss fights that allow you to build up powers and unlock new ways to play. Among the three episodes released on Nintendo, it is the first that we will focus on today with a particularly cult duel: against Sigma. Since the introduction we know this character who is none other than the great antagonist of the game, after an (inevitable) defeat against him, we are saved in extremis by Zero, the charismatic robot. Throughout the adventure, our objective will be to defeat Sigma’s henchmen in order to find him at the end of the journey.

Once all eight bosses are defeated, we can finally face Sigma in an epic duel. First, we take on her robot dog, which is just the first phase of the fight. It’s only after the big bad enters the scene and takes off his cape to finally do battle with some kind of lightsaber that looks like it’s straight out of Star Wars. After bouncing off all the walls, making him particularly hard to hit, he’s not done. Indeed, In his third form, Sigma fuses with Velguarder, his dog, to transform into some kind of giant robot. that you have to climb on your hands to try to touch his head. A fairly technical phase but satisfying once completed. Sigma will later return in Mega Man X3, but in a different form.

Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island

With its colorful art direction, Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island is already unique in itself. We embody a group of Yoshi in charge of taking care of Baby Mario who transform on his back. Thanks to their long tongues, they can swallow enemies before violently spitting them out. A highly effective gameplay accompanied by a beautiful aesthetic, necessarily gives a cult game.. Therefore, to pay tribute to him, today we will focus on his final boss.

Beyond being the main antagonist of Super Mario Sunshine, Baby Bowser first appeared on Yoshi’s Island as the final boss, and what an introduction! Thus, the first phase of the fight is quite simple since you arrive in a room where you must dodge your attacks before counterattacking. However, once defeated, this is where the real showdown begins. Indeed, we meet outside in the dark, as the sun sets, and we see Baby Bowser in the distance who has grown giant. Little by little, the latter approaches our level until he is defeated. A particularly beautiful panorama for a SNES game and remarkable for anyone who has already done it.

super metroid

Good. It’s obvious that by doing an article on Super NES game bosses, Super Metroid was going to get a pass. It must be said that in the series the bosses occupy an important place, especially in this episode where they are the most memorable. Thus, we think of Kraid, so big that we can not see everything on one screen, or Ridley, the recurring antagonist of the series with the terrifying sound effects of him. But despite this, it is again on the final boss that we will focus on for a very specific reason: the narrative. In Super Metroid there is no text, except at the beginning of the adventure to lay the groundwork. However, the title manages to tell a story., as light as it is, thanks to “scenes” without dialogue. This is exactly what we saw in his final fight.

Thus, we meet at the beginning to face Mother Brain, the final boss of the first game, in a perfectly identical context. Although one may feel disappointed at first when faced with something already seen in the past, this is not the case. After completing her first phase, Mother Brain emerges from his jar to transform into a hideous two-legged monster with a giant eye. At the end of this sequence, Samus is defeated by the creature’s lightning. It is then that she is saved in extremis by the Metroid that she had saved earlier. who proceeds to drain Mother Brain’s energy to give it to Samus. Unfortunately, the monster still manages to defeat the giant Metroid who is instantly killed. Regardless, Samus now taps into the Hyper Beam and easily defeats the monster. A classic boss fight that goes down in history with its simple yet effective storytelling.
