** Ludwig Von Koopa marks the moment the Ting Weakness system becomes more about blocking a OneHitKO or making a boss vulnerable instead of actually attacking them, thus fixing a major problem with ''Sticker Star'' and it's battle system. The battle itself comes in three phases. For the first phase, a Tail card is needed to hit Ludwig's attacks back at him with precision, the second is the moment the Balloon Thing is needed to make him vulnerable and is followed by the third phase where you attack his sub and then defeat him. Also, he is the only boss who can be defeated without taking damage and getting a perfect bonus.

* As a tradition to the series, there is a secret, ultra-powerful boss at the end of the battle ring. In this game, it's Dry Bowser. He attacks by throwing bones in extremely tricky-to-dodge patterns (including his own head!), summoning the koopalings to assist him (two at a time), attempting to inhale you while you desperately attempt to knock away oncoming debris which would otherwise knock you into his hungry maw, allowing him to ''chew you up'' while recovering HP, and summoning thwomps to crush the bros. one after the other while preparing to follow that up by drowning them in fire breath. The fight itself is hectic beyond belief, and you'll need to make use of each and every trick you can muster to get out of this one alive. Good luck getting the S-ranking on the boss medley.

* ''VideoGame/PaperMarioColorSplash'' is controversial due to using the gameplay of ''Sticker Star''; the fact most of the bosses are considered great should say something.
** Petey Piranha (or rather Petea Piranha) is one of the few bosses to not use the Thing Weakness system. The strategy to defeat him changes depending on his battle stance; if he is standing jump attacks are countered, blocking his spin attack makes him dizzy and attacking him when he is dizzy knocks him over, leaving him vulnerable to Jump attacks.

** Wendy is a rhythm based boss set to one of the best boss themes in the game.
** Larry may be ThatOneBoss but in a game criticised for being easy, this is a breath of fresh air for some. He is a FlunkyBoss where every one of the mooks he summons needs to be defeated to let the Toad helping you to make it to the engine room of the train he is fought atop. This stops Larry healing all him HP every turn. Then comes the moment to use the Cork Thing so he can't blind you. This is the moment the battle against Larry actually starts; that's right the Thing does not mark the end of the battle but the beginning and he really puts up a fight with an very unpredictable attack pattern.
** Lemmy is the BreatherBoss after Larry but what he lacks in difficulty he makes up for in sheer fun. He summons mooks to help, uses some clever tricks to mess with your cards and the Things needed to defeat him (the Disco Ball and Ice Pick) are both cleverly hinted at and really clever. All this set to a brilliant theme.
** Roy steals your paint and fires it at you. Not only does this mean you need to think about what attacks you use but the paint has various different effects to mess with you (including changing the timing of attacks and making it so you can only use certain attacks) making for a fight that can be challenging but fair. Also, he uses the Black Paint to blind you, requiring the Washing Machine Thing in one of the only times a Things attack animation is used as the method to make a boss vulnerable.
** Bowser, the Final Boss. Similar to the Shadow Queen he is fought in a small battle where you weaken him until he becomes a HopelessBossFight and then attack him until you get to the moment he is made vulnerable. Like ''Sticker Star'', this moment is the ExpositionFairy becoming an attack to use; unlike with Kersti though, Huey actually participates in the battle. Blocking an attack with Huey out absorbs the Black Paint Bowser throws at you and prevents him from healing. The more Bowser is attacked in one turn the more paint is knocked off and the more powerful the attack. It is also a TimeLimitBoss as Huey can not survive forever. In addition, this battle needs no Things at all, just good old fashioned attacking.

* ''Super Mario World 2: VideoGame/YoshisIsland'':''VideoGame/SuperMarioLand2SixGoldenCoins'' marks the grand debut of Wario, the greedy rival of Mario, and plays the role of FinalBoss. And how does he confront the famed Italian hero? ''By using his own powerups against him''. Even longtime archnemesis Bowser hadn't thought of that until ''much'' later in ''VideoGame/SuperMario3DWorld''.

** As if skating in this series didn't improve IceWorld enough, you get to use it UpToEleven against ''Prince Pikante''. He bombards the area with meteors which you have to gracefully dodge, then skillfully deflect his attacks at him. Really fun and satisfying.

** Like most bosses, Monty Tank is pretty easy, but the ''[[SelfImposedChallenge way]]'' you beat him can be made pretty fun. He lets loose Bullet Bills on both sides, which you have to dodge and can GoombaSpringboard off of to either a) [[BoringButPractical stomp him]]. b) blast him with fireballs, or c) throw his Bob-ombs [[CatchAndReturn right back at him]].

** Everyone and their second cousin knew that the Bowsers would team up for the final battle. Though, during the first phase, it becomes clear that they are competing against each other to see who's better, which is essentially two equal forces seeing who could outdo the other. They do this by breathing metric tons of fire, and hurling dozens of giant spike balls at you. The chaos is disorienting enough, but remember this is just the first phase. After they take enough damage, Paper Bowser uses some untold power to absorb most of his army in a gigantic paper mesh. Then Bowser jumps into the mess. The result is a giant Bowser wearing Giant Shiny Cardboard Bowser as ''armor'', named Shiny [=RoboBowser=]. The armor is essentially a giant shapeshifting papercraft. It can launch massive energy balls via arm cannons, grind you to mush as an AdvancingBossOfDoom, bombard you from the skies and even spawn its own trio move to overpower your own! Bowser himself is no slouch either. He breathes just as much, if not more fire than before and punches hard enough to send a bro flying. To win the battle, you have to grind through the armor to get to the main body. He will restore his armor every now and then, and his ragemode is easily the scariest of them all. Oh, and he's a fully animated 3D model. And the music, oh, God, the music! It just goes to show that you don't fuck with Bowser... especially not two of them!
