The bosses in LEGO Star Wars The Skywalker Saga are inarguably the best. Every boss battle is unique in its own way which forces the player to tap into their maximum potential. For example, some boss fights in Lego Star Wars The Skywalker Saga will test your puzzle-solving skills, while others will see how good you are at crowd management. One thing about bosses that Lego Star Wars The Skywalker Saga has copied from the Souls-bourne genre is that it has given some of its bosses multiple health bars or phases you might say. Also, consider reading our LEGO Star Wars Skywalker Saga Easter eggs and secret references.
The phase system makes the fights more endurance-based. That said all the bosses in the Skywalker Saga have been designed with utmost attention to detail while simultaneously giving references to the Star Wars movies multiple times. If the above facts have piqued your interest in the bosses in the Skywalker Saga, then keep reading our Lego Star Wars Skywalker Bosses guide to find out more about all the bosses in Skywalker Saga. While you’re at it, consider reading our LEGO Star Wars Skywalker Saga Trophy guide.
Up next is the Darth Maul. Looking at the epicness of this boss fight, we were surprised that this was not the Final Boss of the Phantom Menace episode. This fight does it all, from making you solve complex puzzles to replicating exact scenes from the movie giving the fans a good ting of nostalgia. While you’re at it, consider reading our The Skywalker Saga: Better Call Maul Challenge Guide.
This boss also serves as a great introduction to the game’s combat mechanics by initiating multiple quick time events teaching you to parry, block, dodge, and throw your lightsabers at the blockhead. Long story short, the Darth Maul ensues a thrilling chase that easily makes this boss a solid 10/10.
Captain Phasma (Capture mission)
You will face Phasma twice in the Skywalker Saga. With one being in the Last Jedi and the other in The Force Awakens, though the latter is better by a mile. You will be fighting Phasma as Han, Finn, and Chewbacca. When the fight starts Phasma will be hiding in her bunker and your goal here will be to lure her out by taking out 30 of the First-order troopers.
After that, Phasma will come out of her hiding. However, the game does not want you to fight her directly, instead, you will be setting up a bunch of traps for her as she patrols the area, and once she gets trapped in 3 of them. The traps may be off-putting to players on the more serious end of the spectrum but they can be a fun way of easing things up making up for some funny moments.
The Acklay, Nexu, and Reek
Here you will be fighting 3 animal bosses simultaneously. The fight starts once you break the chains at the top of the tower to which you are tied. You will get to fight these beasts in the second last level of the “Attack of The Clones” in the geo-notion arena. As long as you are fighting each of these beasts separately, these bosses should not be much of a bother. But they can and will interfere with your other party members as they are busy engaging the other two beasts.
All and all this fight can be pretty fun provided you do not mind the beast’s interfering tendencies. Another mentionable thing here is that the visual effects for these beasts have improved by a mile in the Skywalker Saga compared to Star Wars 3.
Jabba The Hutt and Salacious Crumb
You will be fighting this gross ball of slug and his pet as Leia and R2-D2. The main bulk of this fight will consist of Jabba flinging a bunch of items and his creepy pet at you who looks just as heeby jeeby in the game as in the movies. However, if you can ignore Jabba abusing his pet and throwing stuff at you then this fight makes for a pretty easy yet satisfying experience. As for your efforts during this fight, you need to focus all of them on Jabba and completely ignore the Salacious Cumb.
General Grievous is an incredible boss who stocks most of his moves as a recreation of grievous from “Revenge Of The Sith” making him even deadlier of a death machine. Though it is worth mentioning that his reaction to losing a limb is hilarious when transitioning into the next phase making him more of a cute death machine than a deadly one.
However, something we would have liked to see here happening was to chase him through Udapa while he is fleeing on the single bike wheel thingy. What we found more amazing than the boss fight itself was the hilarious breakdance that General Grievous’s short-circuited body performed after being separated from its head.
Palpatine, The Knights Of Ren & The Praetorian Guards
Now before you say anything we know that the Rise Of The Skywalker was not exactly the best movie but this boss fight is complete 180 degrees of that. After all, this is the final boss of the game so no wonder that they gave it their best shot to make it as epic as possible. During this epic finale, you will not only take on the Palpatine but the Knights of Ren & the Pretorian guards as well.
The fight itself is not that hard but the way they present it is what makes it such a satisfying finisher to your journey across all the 9 movies. And as if all of that was not enough they decided to end the fight with a BB boss battle. You know what? We are not gonna spoil it any more for you and let you enjoy this for the first time for yourself. You will LOVE it.
Kylo Ren (Episode VII)
The boss fight is simply legendary. For a second let us just put the fight aside and look at the area you fight him in. It is on a planet that is about to blow up, you can guess how amazing of a vibe it would give. That said, the fight with Kylo Ren is just perfect. You start by fighting him as Fin who is wielding a lightsaber. Once Fin depletes his first health bar Ren will flee.
Upon catching him and depleting his second health bar, he will initiate another chase sequence. This time when you catch him you will be switched to the girl who came with Fin. And well she kicks Ren’s butt. When you have deployed Kylo Ren’s health bars a cutscene will play indicating the end of the boss fight.
Darth Vader & Emperor Palpatine
Of all the times when the developers have tried to bring this fight into the Starwars games, this one is hands down their best attempt. Saying that this fight depicts the best portrayal of an emotional betrayal would be an understatement. In the first phase of this fight, your objective is to fend off the Darth Vader as Luke Skywalker.
Once you’ve done that, that is where the emotional rollercoaster starts as Darth Vader turns against his master. This is where the real limits of your skills will be tested as you’ll have to defeat Imperial guards who are tougher than the average enemy while simultaneously deflecting Palpatine’s attacks. Just like most of its other boss fights, The Skywalker Saga ends this one too with a satisfying cutscene where Darth Vader throws his master down into the abyss.
The fight with Anakin Skywalker is hilarious, to say the least as the game pokes fun at his eventual turn to the Darkside ranging from his childish behavior to random color changes in his lightsaber. But looking at how heavy this fight is emotional, we are nothing but grateful to the developers for mixing it up with a few light-hearted jokes.
You can just feel the heaviness in the air by the fact that you will be fighting Anakin as Master Kenobi, and the presence of C-3P0 and R2-D2 just makes this sadder than it already is. Long story short, this fight will send you into an existential crisis by the end of it.
With such a petty role in Starwars The Skywalker Saga, it is a surprise that FN-2199 became a meme material for his famous word “TRAITOR”. Although this boss fight is not that lengthy, the game still manages to honor the short-lived villain. Here you will be fighting him as Finn who is the former colleague of FN-2199. What made this fight so memorable for us was the Indiana Jones reference at the end of it when FN-2199 spins his lightsaber like a Shaolin master. We only wish it lasted a bit longer.
Before we continue with more Lego Star Wars Skywalker Bosses, we just want to say that if you have made it to this section of our guide, then you are a true Starwars fan. That said, Luke Skywalker himself is a boss in the Skywalker Saga. The fight involves Rey getting angry at Luke for creating Kylo Ren, that or Rey was just pissed that Luke blew up Chewbacca’s cover while showering.
As for the fight itself, it is nothing but a walk in the park as Luke does not even fight back that much, to be honest, you are just bullying him here. Once you have defeated him a cutscene plays Luke tells Rey why he did what he did. And well the emotional roller coaster of Star Wars starts again.
The initial impression of Jango Fett seems overly friendly, and the reason for that is because he is hiding the fact that he is the assassin Master Kenobi is looking for. As the cutscene ends, you will encounter Jango on a helipad. Jango himself does not pose much of a threat but it is the shooting you need to stay cautious of. Once you deplete the Jango’s health bar, the fight will transition into its next phase where you will be fighting a space battle with Jango from your spaceship. Be careful of Jango’s missiles here.
Jango Fett (Petraniki Area)
This fight with Jango Fett is a complete fish market, the arena is filled to the teeth with the protagonists, beasts, star troopers, and droids. The presence of so many entities at once can seem overwhelming at first, but most of them are nothing but pushovers. On the subject of Droid, why not go through our LEGO Star Wars The Skywalker Saga Droid Factory Frenzy guide.
All you need to do here is to laser focus on Jango and completely ignore everyone else in the arena. To make things easier, Jango only has one health bar here so there’s your compensation for the huge numbers of enemies in the arena. At the end of the fight, Jango will get run over by 2 mobs and then get stomped by the red and silver beast multiple times.
Count Dooku (Episode II)
Starwars the Skywalker Saga never fails to impress us with its hilarious moments and catching Count Dooku with his pants down is one of those moments. To initiate this boss battle you first have to chase Count Dooku, once the chase is complete you will engage Count Dooku as Anakin Skywalker and Master Kenobi.
In the initial moments of the fight, you will be performing the casual hack and slash with Count Dooku followed by a few chasing sessions and occasional power shutdowns by Count Dooku. Once you are through the initial phases of the fight, it instantly picks up the pace when Yoda joins the fray. From here Count gets outnumbered and overwhelmed and well, he escapes after a few desperate and futile attempts to take three Jedis out at once.
Count Dooku (Episode III)
The first encounter with Count Dooku was pretty epic on its own but this one in Episode III tops it. This time you will be fighting him as Anakin only who claims to have his powers increased since their last fight. After depleting some of Count’s health he will summon his super battle droids who are nothing more than a nuisance.
In fact, the hardest part about this fight is not even the boss or the droids, it’s to bear the most unfunny puns we’ve ever heard thrown by Battle Droids at Count Dooku. Once you have completely depleted Count’s health, a cutscene will play where he gets his arm cut by Anakin marking the end of the fight.
The boss fight with Darth Sidious starts when Yoda realizes that the formally known Emperor was Darth Sidious. The fight starts with Darth Sidious throwing a stream of lighting at Yoda which you have to aim and deflect. After that, a sort of lighting force field gets formed around Darth Sidious so there goes your chance to engage him in close combat. Your only option left here will be to throw objects at him using the Force until he tires out and the lightning field disappears.
Now you can deplete his health bar using close combat. After the initial stages, a number of chase sequences begin where you have to catch Darth Sidious. You will also be encountering a bunch of clone commanders during this so get ready. The ending cutscene during this fight is not as satisfying as the previous ones as it will show poor Yoda falling down. While you’re at it, why not read our LEGO: The Skywalker Saga Force Ghost Yoda guide.
The following section of our Lego Star Wars Skywalker Bosses guide will tell you about Dianoga. Dianoga in a lot of ways resembles the hydra from Prototype 2, it’s basically a large tentacle attacking you with the assistance of its minions. The eye of the Diagona is its most vulnerable part so you know where to aim your gun now. During the fight, the Dianoga will occasionally disappear and reemerge from the ground grabbing the closest standing person to it.
So you will have to tackle this by switching to other protagonists. Another thing during this fight that makes it all the tenser is the walls of the dumpster slowly coming together because C-3PO is a total idiot who turned off his communication. But thankfully he turns it on and stops the walls from colliding just before they are about to crush our heroes.
Darth Vader (Cave Of Darkness)
This fight with Darth Vader is more of a tutorial fight instead of a proper boss fight. Here the main aim of the game is to prepare you for the upcoming battle where you will fight the real Darth Vader. Yes, that’s right, what you will be fighting here will only be a hallucination conjured up by Luke Skywalker which thankfully is not that hard to defeat.
Darth Vader (Episode V)
Confronting Darth Vader in Episode V shows what the Darkside in Starwars is truly capable of. You engage him as Luke Skywalker. After depleting some of his health during the first phase, Darth Vader will throw Luke into the Carbon freezing chamber. Thankfully R2-D2 saves the day here by shutting the chamber down.
Once Luke comes out of the Carbon chamber, Darth Vader will escape and hide into the processing vane. You can find him in the last room just before the shutter but we recommend opening the rooms before the last one as they offer some wholesome and funny moments.
Upon finding him you will be back to the casual hack and slash until you fully deplete his health bar and initiate a cutscene. The cutscene reveals a shocking revelation that we won’t be telling you because of spoilers but you will love it.
You will be fighting Rancor as Luke Skywalker and Jubunk. Your weapon here is a bone? Seriously they could not have thought of anything else? Anyways back to the point. Rancor only has one phase but do not let that fool you into thinking that he will be easy. He has a massive health pool so be prepared to fight him for a very prolonged time.
For the rest of the fight, you have to keep attacking Rancor while dodging his occasional slams and smashes. At the end of the fight, a cutscene will play where Rancor gets his head smashed by the giant door that Luke unlocks by throwing a skull at it.
After you defeat the Rancor, Jabba the Hutt gets angry and throws you to the Sarlaac but somehow you end up fighting Boba Fett, son of the Jango Fett. As Luke Skywalker, Chewbacca, and Lando Carlissian you will fight Boba Fett as three on one. this fight doesn’t have any special segments and relies mostly on the hack and slash part. One memorable thing about this fight is that when you have almost defeated Boba, he flies off and you bring him down using the mounted guns at the side of the ship. Other than that, this fight is pretty casual. On the subject of ships, consider reading our Star Wars Skywalker Saga Capital Ships and learn how to unlock them all.
The fight starts when Kylo Ren turns on Snoke and sides with Rey. Snoke as a desperate attempt summons his Elite Praetorian Guards. There are eight of them in total and to win the fight you have to dispatch all of them.
What makes this fight so special is that when you get to play as Kylo Ren, you can literally feel his power with every successful hit that connects. The way he moves so flawlessly during combat is just top tier. The developers did an excellent job of reflecting his dark personality through his fighting style. Once you defeat all eight Praetorian Guards, the battle will be over with a hilarious cut scene.
Just like the previous encounter with Captain Phasma, you will not be fighting her head on here as well. You are supposed to defeat her as Finn and Rose Tico using a bunch of environmental attacks. For most of the fight, she will be standing above you so the previous fact only makes sense.
For starters, you can punish her for badmouthing Finn by dropping the hanging Tie Fighters on her. You can also resort to launching the large metal ball at her from below. Your third option for offense here will be to mount and fire the gattling at her. Long story short, this fight really knows how to bring out your creative side.
Now, this boss fight cannot really be called a boss fight since all you fight here are a bunch of low-level thugs who are no better than the regular block-head enemies in the Skywalker Saga. But you do get a boss card at the end of this fight so that is why the Kijimi Crooks are included in our list.
Like we said before this boss will see how good you are at managing crowds by throwing hordes of enemies at once. Your best bet here is to keep moving at all times to avoid getting cornered and slaying them one by one. Following this simple yet effective strategy will help you defeat this pseudo boss fight in no time.
Kylo Ren (Episode VIII)
You cannot really call this fight with Kylo Ren a boss fight as it’s more of a series of quick-time events than a proper fight. Your hero here will be Luke Skywalker who will be fighting or dodging if you might say Kylo Ren in a holographic form.
Fortunately, Kylo does not realize that he is fighting a projection until it is too late for him. This whole fight is a big joke in his face as Luke not only did not come but also pokes fun at Kylo at the end of every phase. On one side you will be dodging Ren’s attacks while on the other side you will be playing as Finn trying to find a way out of the tunnels. Eventually, Finn finds his way once you have depleted the last health bar of Kylo Ren.
Kylo Ren (Episode IX)
This section of our Lego Star Wars Skywalker Bosses guide will tell you about the final encounter you will have with Kylo Ren. This time as Rey, you might think that your chances of winning here are slim after reading that. But Rey actually does a pretty decent job of overpowering Kylo Ren here.
Here he will have four hearts meaning this is going to be another test of your endurance abilities. The whole fight acts as a really good way for Rey and Kylo to finally communicate their feelings. The outcome of the fight is also very satisfying as Kylo finally comes to his senses and remembers that he is Ben Solo and not Kylo Ren.
The “BB-boss”, quite hell of a name they gave him. You will be fighting this turret as Finn, Hannah, and BB-8. You cannot destroy the turret until you have demolished the exhaust vents placed at its side, so keep your focus on them. During the fight, you will also encounter a bunch of red droids but they are nothing more than a minor distraction. Once you have successfully destroyed the last exhaust vent the turret will get absolutely obliterated and you will win the battle.
