The 10 hardest bosses in Terraria

See which Terraria bosses are going to give you the hardest to beat.

While the graphics of Terraria might be bright, colorful, and a little cartoonishly pixelated, not everything in the game is as lighthearted as they might suggest. The game is full of bosses for you to tackle and many of them can be pretty difficult. They take the form of many an intimidating creature but all share one similar quality with each other: making you want to rip your hair out. To help you prepare for those battles ahead, we have a list of the 10 hardest bosses in the game and why you should prepare yourself for a rough experience.

This boss comes in the game’s Hardmode and it lives up to that difficulty. You will most likely need to acquire some post-Golem gear to take this guy down. That’s really all the advice we can give you for this boss: get good gear and try to survive. Beating him will net you some great, powerful gear.

Golem

While not as difficult as other bosses on this list, Golem still can pack a punch if you’re not ready for him. He is pretty easy to summon and can be downed with the proper gear and take advantage of his weakness to bouncing projectiles.

Plantera

Once you have taken down three mechanical bosses, you will be able to summon Plantera. This boss deals out a lot of damage and is also very mobile, quickly moving around the battlefield with ease. Be sure to stock up on durable gear before you try to take this monster on.

Wall of Flesh

This is the final pre-Hardmode boss that you fight before the world becomes harder. The goal is to attack his eyes and it’s pretty simple. The key is to build a bridge in order to do so. Without a bridge, the fight can be a real nightmare.

The Lunatic Cultist

This boss comes after you take down the Golem, and while he can pack a big punch, his health bar is relatively small. But beating him is how you can summon the Celestial Towers, which are Hardmode events you will want to take part in.

The Twins

Many view this boss as the hardest of the mechanical bosses you can fight in the game, largely due to the fact that The Twins are basically two bosses in one, as you have take down each eyeball. With two giant creatures coming after you, both relatively quick, this fight will take a lot of concentration and maybe even some luck to overcome.

Skeleton Prime

To beat Skeletron, all you need to do is destroy his head. Sounds easy but it is made harder when you have his four other limbs that can lash out and deal some good damage. If prepare and play him right, he won’t be as difficult as many other bosses on this list, but lose focus, and he can make you rage.

The Destroyer

This giant worm is split up into different sections that all share one health bar. The issue comes when you realize that each section contains a red Probe, a mini-boss that is launched as the boss takes damage. Dealing with these guys isn’t necessarily difficult but it is annoying when you are also trying to take down the bigger Destroyer.

Skeletron

Much like his Prime counterpart, Skeletron just needs his head to be destroyed for the fight to be over. But his limbs can easily take you down with one mistake. You will almost certainly have to destroy his arms before getting to the head and if you get caught in his spin, it’s over.

Easily the hardest of the hardest, this boss will make you have to think about how you play the game differently. It will make you have to build arenas in a different way, craft different potions, and just fight in ways you hadn’t before. As the final boss of the game, it makes sense for him to be the hardest. Put him on Expert Mode as well, and good luck.
