** 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]].

** 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.

* 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.

** 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!

* ''VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiPaperJam'' crosses both of Mario's RPG series's in a single action-packed game with twice the Bowser and his army to deal with! This makes some surprisingly memorable battles, especially considering the fact that only standard Mario enemies and characters (from the [=platformers=] exclusively) are in the mix.

** When you finally reach Bowser's castle, you find the Bowser Juniors. They take you on together from inside their respective clown cars while bombarding you with attacks that are nothing short of chaotic, from racing to see who can ram a bro first, to having a Paper Mario/Paper Bowser Jr. airplane flying contest where the loser gets a face full of [=spikeballs=]. It really shows the mischevious side of these guys while providing an excellent battle.
** The bros. are forced to travel the haunted woods and are nigh-instantaneously separated. Luigi manages to overcome his fears long enough to find mario, and they both set out to find their paper friend. After finding him on an unsettling, large platform, something seems off. As it turns out, it's actually King Boo! The bros. discover his ruse fast enough, though. What really makes this fight memorable is when he pulls out the real Paper Mario and threatens the bros. with a hostage situation if they lay a finger on him. Just take care of the boo with Paper Mario to get him back and get ready to kick some ghostly tail!

** Right before the final battle, you fight ''all the [=koopalings=] in a tough, three-round endurance battle.'' The one that takes the cake is the last round, where you fight Morton, Iggy, and Lemmy. Lemmy starts off by leaving... and promptly returning with an impossibly large circus ball and attempting to mow you down with it. Hit him with the boomerang enough times to knock him off, stunning him. Iggy then follows that up by getting an enormous Chain Chomp to come tearing down the aisle... chasing ''him''. He will then try to knock you towards the chain chomp. After doing likewise to him, Morton reatliates by grabbing the nearest thing, ''which just happens to be the massive chain chomp'', and hurls it at the bros. After some masterful rebounding, the Chain Chomp leaves everyone completely debilitated, ready to receive a massive pummeling.

* Once again, we get a wiggler battle. Except in this game, he's friendly and never has any intention of harming you. So why do you fight him? Because Paper Kamek corrupted him over with magic, making him huge and angry. ''All the time!''

* ** Once again, we get a wiggler battle. Except in this game, he's friendly and never has any intention of harming you. So why do you fight him? Because Paper Kamek corrupted him over with magic, making him huge and angry. ''All the time!''time!'' He attacks you by creating barrages of shock waves, rearing to towering heights on his hind legs and chasing a random bro, who is now forced to run for his life while knocking out any monty moles and spear guys who get in the way before Paper Kamek himself charges at you. Knock him away, and he'll bob wiggler on the head, knocking him over. And that's just ''one'' attack! Then, Paper Kamek can spawn a giant ball for wiggler to balance on while chasing down the bros in an attempt to mow them down. Then, when Wiggler is finally taken care of, Paper Kamek comes down to get personal with the bros. If you don't take him out in a couple of turns, he'll revive the wiggler for round two.
** On your way to Bowser's castle, you are cut off and thrown into a dungeon by an army of Chargin' Chucks. Once you make a spirited escape, you eventually run into them again, and they are ''not'' happy about your jailbreak. They take you on as a team of about ''fifty''. That's right: you're pitted against fifty giant, pissed off football players. Granted, they only fight in a group of sixteen maximum. They ''do'' slowly replenish their numbers as you whittle down the team, however.

** When reaching the summit of mount Brr, the bros. finally see just where all the paper stuff is coming from; Bowser set up launchers to spread paper terrain and enemies all over the kingdom. Just as they plan to shut it down, King Bob-omb drops in out of nowhere, initiates the countdown to ''his own detonation'', and challenges the bros. The nerve-wracking sensation of that timer ticking closer and closer to its ultanium is sure to keep you on your toes as he occupies you with a ''ton'' of bombs and Bob-omb minions, and even trying to grab a bro and throw him into another bro as a nice call back to his first appearance.

** First there's Paper Petey Piranha. This may not sound all that impressive, considering how the "regular" version of him was already the first boss. That is, if he didn't start the battle by ''immediately stealing your copy block and making copies of himself!'' Now he has a barrage of tricky-to-dodge attacks to overwhelm you with. Not only that, but he will only die if you take down the original copy, which means that mindlessly attacking the stack isn't going to work out for you. Worse still, his copies never get destroyed; they just stop taking damage when they fall off the stack, then get revived and reshuffled with the rest of the lot. And no, in case you're wondering, there isn't a way to make him fall over and expose his weak spot. You are ''never'' going to see Petey Piranha as a basic boss fight after this battle.
