If there’s one thing missing from Minecraft, it’s bosses. Mojang’s popular sandbox game lacks menacing bosses for players to fight and defeat.
There is a final boss in Ender Dragon, which represents the end of the game and is supposed to be the biggest challenge. There’s also the Wither, which can spawn at almost any time and is arguably more dangerous than the Ender Dragon. However, the list ends there.
Mojang curiously chose not to make Warden a boss when they added him in 1.19, even though he is stronger than Ender Dragon and all other mobs.
One way to fix missing bosses in Minecraft is to use plugins or mods that introduce new ones.

CyclopsTek, Mutant Creatures, And 3 Other Great Minecraft Mods That Add New Bosses To The Game
1) Cracker’s Witherstorm Mod
The Witherstorm is one of the most fearsome and strange entities in the entire world of Minecraft.
The mob debuted in Story Mode but is not in standard Minecraft. Fortunately, it can be added to the game, thanks to Cracker’s Witherstorm Mod.
This is how the creators of Cracker’s Witherstorm Mod describe the mod:
“This mod is designed to be primarily a survival challenge mod where players attempt to defeat Wither Storm while running, hiding, and gearing up as they go… One of the goals of this mod is to abstract Wither Storm of the game as much as possible, so that anyone can play.
Cracker’s Witherstorm Mod can be found on CurseForge.
CyclopsTek introduces a new fearsome boss named Cyclops. It is ideal for players who like to play basic Minecraft and want a mod that adds a boss to the game.
The Cyclops is a strong creature. He can slam his stick down with tremendous force or attack from the front and send players flying. He can even fire a laser beam from his eye.
3) Mass destruction bosses
Bosses of Mass Destruction is the epitome of boss mods. Add four new bosses to the game for an awesome experience.
Night Litch sits on towers in cold biomes, while Nether Gaunlet sits in Nether pits.
The Obsidilith is found in rare structures on the final islands. The Void Blossom, on the other hand, lives in a chamber in the lush cave biome.
4) Mutant creatures
Mutant Creatures features upgraded versions of Minecraft mobs, which are bigger and stronger than their normal counterparts. For example, the mod features a massive deformed zombie, which is a nightmare. Each mob drops an item for the player when he dies.
This mod provides many new mobs for players to fight in Minecraft. However, it also honors the game by basing the mods on the original versions.
5) Ice and Fire
Ice and Fire has been one of the most popular Minecraft mods for a long time. Completely revamps the mobs and bosses in the game.
This is what the creators, Raptorfarian and Alexthe666, have to say about their mod:
“Ice and Fire is a mod… hoping to add dragons in a proper way. Currently, dragons have two types: ice and fire. Fire dragons breathe fire and roam most of the inhabitable world, while dragons Ice dragons inhabit the coldest places known to man and freeze their prey to death. Both types of dragons reproduce naturally as adults. And news has reached us of a new discovery: lightning dragons, powerful creatures nocturnal creatures that shoot lightning bolts to kill their prey”.
Here is the full list of mobs that Ice and Fire adds to the game:
- dead worm
- stymphalus bird
- Sea snake
- Fire Dragon
- Ice dragon
- The Queen of Terror (work in progress)
Fire Dragon, Ice Dragon, Gorgon, and Cyclops are the current bosses in the mod. The creators are also working on The Dread Queen as another option.
