A small note about the lower thirds: We've recently upgraded our video editing software and it completely ruined them when transferring over. So after this ranked video, we're gonna make another custom lower third that's more similar to the older one, but we'd like to spice it up a little bit anyway. Hope you enjoy the video!

One little detail I love about The Rook is that because he's an executioner, that's why he'd be firing heads at you. But that's not all. Notice that when he fires a pink head, it looks kinda shocked, maybe a little scared. But when you parry it, it gains a nasty grin. It's like it's ready to get revenge on The Rook.

another fun fact with the rook, like most of the bosses in cuphead he has a pun in his kill text. ‘Beating you was pretty straightforward’ is a reference to the rook only being able to move in a straight line forwards (or sideways) in a game of chess

Maybe you struggled on some bosses because you used the weakest weapon with an accessory that lowers your attack damage? Just a thought.

I thought the Chef was much harder than the Devil. Honestly, the hardest part about it is getting through the first two phases with enough health to allow mistakes while parrying in the last stage. I spent 3 hours straight on it. Probably the longest I spent on any DLC boss.
I personally think Dr Khal is harder than Grim. Grim is easier when using the Lober shot while Dr Khal is just ridiculous. Then again, Grim was fine for me and I got so frustrated with Khal, I snapped a pencil in 4, so it may be a bit biased

@time2Bcool he probably didnt fight him enough to learn his simplistic Pattern and throught he was way too hard because of that. What's funny for me IS that I didnt play cuphead for 2 years and went back to the King dice fight to unlock the 9 HP points archievement and got him as the miniboss, and I simply beat him not taking a single hit and not even trying that hard. He placing It so high on the list makes me think he's doing It as a meme, Its such a pathetic optional Boss.
RustyTin Vor 20 Tage
The only boss I had a true struggle with was Dr. Kahl’s Robot, which took me more than a day and countless attempts to beat, whereas the other bosses took no more than an hour or two. Also I think Mangosteen is the easiest boss in the whole game, but everyone’s opinions vary.

Im so suprised that the most easy bosses are at the top 10, and the hard ones at the middle. Just a tip nathaniel, there is a second attack that you can use in plane levels so please talk to the person in world 2 to unlock it because wally warbles is easy as hell with the dropping bombs. (edit): another tip, dont use chaser and use some better bullet types like lobber and spread, etc. chaser does no damage at all.

Is Grim really considered so tough, I do see him mentioned as a rage quit boss. Personally I found him to be tough for a little while but I think I figured out his patterns quickly and then buried him. I think I switched to the charge shot and beat him immediately but he's definitely the kind of boss that can get you with a lot of cheap shots at the end.
Jay Vor 15 Tage
I thought Grim Matchstick was actually easier on expert since during the final phase you're moving towards him rather than away. It makes shooting him and avoiding the fireballs a lot easier.

Some mistakes I feel obligated to point out: Pirouletta’s name is pronounced “peer-roo-let-uh” as it’s a portmanteau of “pirouette” and “roulette”. Pip & Dot are not a die, but a domino. You forgot to talk about Bon Bon’s other candy minions: The cupcake who bounces all over the place, and the waffle who launches 4 of their squares in a + and x pattern. In Sally Stageplay’s final phase, you’re not fighting her afterlife; you’re fighting the real Sally who’s dressed as an angel and can be seen hanging from strings. You didn’t mention Hilda Berg’s Sagittarius transformation that shoots homing projectiles. In Captain Brineybeard’s battle, the barrel would be less of a nuisance if you weren’t using chaser, and the squid’s ink isn’t deadly; it darkens the screen.

As some people have mentioned: Lobber and other weapons are extremely not appreciated enough, each boss (outside of flying stages) has a definitive weakness, there's a combination of weapons that will guarantee an easy win granted you know their patterns a bit, this combinations can get even more creative in multiplayer. Point is, for me, both solo and coop, Grim was outmatched by the lobber, and I consider many other bosses to be way more difficult. But that's the beauty of Cuphead, outside of it's art direction, it's actually an amazingly made game, it embraces it's simplicity yet it's variety can be astonishing and everyone can get sucked in into a different kind of play and experiences, and they all work!

I can never understand why everyone struggles to much with grim, to me he’s just sort of mid in the difficulty range But I suppose everyone has their own levels of difficulty with each boss, which is really unique to see, I don’t think I’ve ever seen another game where everyone has such wildly different ideas of what parts are more/less difficult
IgorRoblox666 AKA Bacon Servant
His first and second phases are mostly just warmups for me, his final is kinda hell tho, because his fireballs can come out of 3 places rather than 1, and the way the split in 4 when shot, his flamethrower is kinda what gave me free damage

Hot take: grimatchstick isn't even that hard. With the charge shot his hp goes from stupid to a twig. The first phase is simple just be near the top of the screen and be in the back or the middle to bait the tail in a convenient spot. 2nd phase just keep moving while spamming crackshot and your fine. and the last phase just stay at the top and duck to hit him, and do the occasional jump to avoid fire balls.

Ok can I just say… Ms chalice makes hopus pocus (number 5 on the board in the king dice fight) way harder…at least for me…particularly the attack where you have to pary the suits… unless the one you have to pary in the back corner it is stupidly hard to pary it as ms chalice because the attacks come from below or above and chalice dashing while parying makes it way harder. I’m trying to beat king dice on expert and hopus pocus almost always either kills me or takes me down to 1 hp. (And dodge-rolling through the attack doesn’t work that well if the attack comes from the bottom)

Esther Winchester is the hardest for me. I usually beat most HARD cuphead bosses in a few hours. But I swear, I struggled for 3 days on her. Not 3 full days, but like maybe 10-13 hours. I finally beat her on multiplayer with my friend due to a glitch that caused her to stop attacking in her second phase until she dies.
SPE The Adventurous
Honestly I only found about 3 bosses to be crazy challenging the 3 bosses being khals robot, king dice and esther winchester Also a tip for dealing with briney beards barrel bandy is to look at it every so often and go under it when you get a chance to make it a rare occurrence

Cool video, although I definitely would rank these guys very differently. I personally found Brineybeard, Grim and Werner to be easy and I found Mortimer Freeze insanely hard for some reason. I would also rank the King Dice mini bosses as one, since the difficulty of the mini-bosses you fight directly contributes to how much health you may have when you face King Dice himself. Plus, it’s all classified as one fight. But these are just my opinions.

With the grim boss (and I give credit to jacksepticeye with this use as well) use the lobber. The lobber helps with grim, specially with the second phase. The lobber shots down and can help with a bit more damage to grim and is more efficient when you are up in the clouds (pun intended).

I completely disagree with your list, but its cool seeing what people consider more or less challenging, me personally, I can't stand the DLC bosses, maybe Mortimer Freeze is kinda easy, but every other boss is close to or in my top 10 hardest, with Chef Saltbaker probably being the hardest for me if not 2nd to Dr Kahl.

ok, if im being honest, i saw you using chaser for the majority of the video, and while it ensures it always hits something, it kills bosses really slowly. like for grim matchsticks, its much easier for the second phase to use roundabout or lobber. honestly the best set of weapons to have for most of the fights for sheer combat power, its roundabout and spreadshot

Captain Brineybeard for me was the easiest main boss of the game while mangosteen is the easiest in cuphead. Best shot for most of these bosses is the Chargeshot or the Crackshot. Hardest bost in my opinion is Dr.Kahl's robot. Its crazy how every player has a different view/experience with these bosses just because they use different weapons and stuff. This is why i love cuphead

@Mr banana I mean using the charged bow shot is much better than the trident because the fireballs that the ender dragon shoots split into 4 when shot

Grim Matchstick is one of the easy ones to me because of Lobber and Charge. Trying to beat him with the cursed relic was awful though, because it kept giving me chaser or crackshot and set off the fireballs. All in all He's the only world 2 boss I had no trouble with on any difficulty with the exception of the charm

I cannot fathom Grim Matchstick being the hardest. He's my favorite in the game!
Matar Vor 24 Tage
I feel like the difference in players experiences comes down to your choice of weapon and how you play certain phases. for me grim matchstick wasn't that hard because I used lobber + charge
CritBottle Vor 22 Tage
Agreed. For example, if he used spread shot instead of chaser against werner he would've had a much easier time. I feel like a lot of these rankings just comes to poor weapon choices

The robot was by far the hardest for me. The only difficult stage of the dragon is the final and you can save your invincibility to make it easier.

lol, so we have a completely different list. I find it so cool that everyone can have a COMPLETELY different experience with these bosses. I think its universal that the robot is just... hell. But the dragon? Take the lobber and just stay up top, one of the easiest fights in the game for me. My list of the top 3 (excluding the DLC bosses, haven't gotten to that yet) Are Robot for #1, The FUCKIN Bee for #2, Beppy for #3
In my opinion, a ton of these bosses have been bumped down in my books due to the brand new weapons, charms, and Ms. Chalice. For example, Grim Matchstick used to be a pain to fight because of the way he attacks, but with Ms. Chalice and Crackshot, he is a breeze to play. Also, the ranking of Cala Maria, Mortimer Freeze, and Saltbaker are criminal. Werner Werman harder than the Devil??? 💀💀💀

Lobber makes Grim a walk in the park, not difficult whatsoever. The final phase is intimidating but as long as you stay on the high clouds there is only one thing to watch for

I found angel and devil surprisngly difficult the first time around because I didn't know if I could unequip the relic used to unlock it. Without smoke bomb, it's actually pretty difficult imo.

I've got my strategies down for most of the bosses but Cala Maria I still have trouble on because it's the most luck-based. I've gotten better at Rumor Honeybottoms but still hate her. Esther Winchester is also insanely busy, she and Saltbaker were easily the most difficult for me in the DLC. Dr. Kahl used to be hardest for me but I got enough practice to where I can beat him pretty easily now. Grim Matchstick also used to be crazy hard for me until I found out how fast lobber kills him

King Dice on his own is extremely easy. You can hide behind his hands so you don’t get hit. But the whole boss fight includes the King’s Court fights, which is why people struggle so much to S Rank him. Fortunately, you only need to do 3 Casino fights, then beat up the King himself. Edit: Knight should be way harder than the placement he gets. Edit 2: Carrot isn’t a hypnotist, he’s psychic. His better name is Psycarrot. Edit 3: Demon and Angel (number 23) isn’t canon, it takes place in a dream.

I love that everyone has different experiences with each boss. For me, Briney Beard, Grim Matchstick, and Wally were some of the easiest bosses. But for him they were all in his top 4. And for me, Cala Maria and baroness were some of the hardest.

If you have the dlc by the time you fight the phantom express, using crackshot makes the first two phases drastically easier. All you have to do is stand at about the middle-right portion of your cart for the first phase and fire the crackshot straight up in the air for the first phase, and do the same for the second but this time stand on the left edge of the cart (align yourself with the pink object that makes the cart move)

I find it kind of funny how much of an opposite experience we had, i found your easy bosses to be hard and vice versa, even the phases you struggled with like the music notes in the moonshine mob i found to be the easiest phase

I disagreed with everything. Thats one of the things I love about cuphead. There are so many skills to be good at for each boss, being better or worse at just a few of those skills can be the difference between finding a boss easy or hard
Erin Barry

can we agree to disagree? I think that the 8-ball is probably one of the easiest king dice minibosses while Phear lap is one of the hardest. I also think that Cala Maria was in the harder side of challenging and Werner Werman is one of the easier bosses.
Uki. Vor 12 Tage
For the dragon, you could of used lobber to make the fight much easier as it does a lot of damage, for me, i think the most challenging is cala maria, because there is so much crap you need to dodge in first phase, which makes me lose 1-2 health points.second phase is easier but i might lose 1 health point there as well. (i play as miss chalice) and the last phase is usually where i die. it took me so long to beat cala.

It was quite surprising seeing Grim Matchstick as #1 as personally, he was relatively easy for me. Except the 3rd phase. Maybe it’s because I’m good at platformers idk.

@Omega Egga If I'm going to be honest I agree with that. He is easy to beat on normal mode and extremely hard on expert but the point I was making was that he is still a harder boss than most. Currently on normal mode he is easy but still harder than most beginner bosses.

@Plushy Randomness Well, back from attempting Mortimer on Expert mode. What I’ve gathered is that he’s super easy on normal, but on expert he’s exceptionally harder. The second phase is drastically harder for sure.

4:58 "The only guy I know that can pull a whale out of thin air" Rip Tide from Skylanders will pretend he didn't hear that. By the way, here's a hint for the bullet hell during Wally and Kahl's bosses. Look at your player instead of the projetiles (With the exception of the electric walls in Kahl). That makes it easier to avoid the bullets and no other attack come from behind, above or below, it's all in front of you. It seriously took me less than an hour to beat Dr. Kahl. If I have to choose between going through his first phase five times in a row and the last two phases of Grim Matchstick one time each, I would pink Kahl.

Some tips for those who are having trouble with king dice. -Always aim for the hearts, the pink dice has a very easy timing, spam jump button on the dice to get the number you want. On the last section both in expert and regular, you can stay behind his hand when he's throwing the cards, safe place and free hits.

I've always found it funny how people's evaluation of the difficulty of Cuphead bosses varies wildly. A lot of people have always said Captain Brineybeard is an "easy" boss but, like this video creator, I found him one of the hardest in the game. I must've got killed by that f****** shark alone more than 20 times, it is so easy to miss the cue that it's coming when your eyes are glued to the barrel.

Baroness Von Bon Bon gave me so much trouble, mainly because taking one piece of damage with the mini bosses basically screws you over in the last phase.
With the bird boss, the final phase is really easy if you found the bomb secondary weapon for the plane

Honestly, Mangosteen is the easiest. You only really have to avoid the boxes and the rainbow orbs are so ridiculously slow. Also, if you didn’t know, if you jump into mangosteen, you don’t take damage.

It’s even easier if you use spread shot and smoke bomb. Just dash through the chalk and when a window of opportunity opens up (which happens a lot) aim up at him from the center of the stage. Rince and repeat until you get a knockout. Charge shot works great to deal massive amounts of damage as well. Honestly for me my least favorite mini boss is Mr. Chime. The part where you’re actually shooting at him and dealing damage isn’t that hard, but I absolutely despise the matching card aspect. My memory is utter trash, and every time you mess up he moves faster and faster…

the thing with all the king dice mini bosses are yeah they can be easy if you have the CORRECT items however the problem is once you start you don’t get to change them and then there’s the fact of having to face the other mini bosses with the same loadout, what you did there was give them the best case scenario which is very weird in this instance because of how the king dice fight goes, tbh you should’ve just ranked all those under the king dice fight

My best guess for the carrot boss is that his brand of hypnotism is themed around eyes, with his third eye and all that, and carrots are commonly said to improve your eyesight.

I know, right. The guy is just using the Peashooter and the Chaser most of the time, which isn't bad, but it lacks damage. I like a lot more the combination of Roundabout and Spread myself. Charge and Lobber are really usefull against the dragon and Crackshot is pretty much Chaser but better.
