Hardest Bosses In Dark Souls


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Slave Knight Gael

The best boss in the history of Dark Souls.

Damn right you are

22 Ceaseless Discharge

This boss can be hard depending on the strategy. Once the fight engages, you can then run back to the fog door and he will jump at you over the edge, holding on for dear life. This is when you keep hitting his hands to get him to let go, and voila! He's dead! - Ornsmoughstein

Even without the fog wall cheese tactic this boss is still extremely easy. All you have to do is be relatively close to him and dodge his attacks then hit his arm when you can. By far the easiest boss in the demon ruins - Ihategwyn310

Even besides the infamous exploit where you can push him over the edge, this fight is easy. If you're by the body where you pick up the clothes, he will do the same attack over and over again. This attack is very easy to dodge and you can get a few attacks while he just rests his arm there. The biggest problem with this boss is its BS hitboxes. If you do die to said hitboxes the fight becomes much more difficult because his attacks reach ALL THE WAY across the arena.

I meant easiest boss next to demon firesage - Ihategwyn310

23 Crossbreed Priscilla

Fortunately, you have to engage the first hit for this fight to begin, so take advantage of this with the most powerful hit you can think of, then keep your eyes peeled, because she turns invisible. This is where it gets hard. Fortunately, you can somewhat get a fix on her position because she eaves footprints in the snow. Don't let her hit you, because she can cause some heavy bleeding damage. Take advantage of attacks when she becomes visible again. - Ornsmoughstein

This boss fight can be quite challenging without a good set of armor and a good weapon. Her attacks can hit hard, and they cause bleed damage. If you have a fast hitting weapon that's what I recommend going into this fight with as it will allow you to make her turn visible relatively easy, after that you can just wail on her - Ihategwyn310

Just watch the footprints, then run up behind them, hit a few times, and run away. Once she becomes visible, her moveset is one of the easiest to dodge in the game. She does bleed damage, though.

24 Gaping Dragon

A loot of people will say this is the easiest boss in the game, and depending on your build, it might be, but jumping into this battle with no strategy will most likely end in your characters death. First of all, this boss has a TON of health. The first few times I fought this boss I got wrecked, and I just couldn't figure out what I was doing wrong. Then I figured out a strategy: When he charges, stand by his side and wait for him to stop. Then get some good hits in his tail, but don't get greedy. So yeah, this is an easy boss, if you know what you're doing. - Ornsmoughstein

For being the holder of the key to blight town I honestly expected a much more difficult fight than this. Though I really don't need to I always summon solaire for this boss just for the hell of it. The only attack you really have to look out for is his walking/charging attack, if you get stuck in the path of that without decent armor you can consider yourself as good as dead. If you do avoid it however, which you most likely will, he just sits there for a few seconds and lets you hit him. Just rinse and repeat and this boss is pretty much a free kill - Ihategwyn310

Dark Bead demolishes this guy.

This boss annoyed me because it chased me the entire time but nonetheless easy but why is it at the bottomoment

25 Pinwheel

This boss is a complete joke. Definitely the easiest boss in the entire game. If you have a good weapon you can literally kill him in 3 hits. The path to this boss is actually somewhat difficult so you can high five yourself once you actually make it to him. - Ornsmoughstein

This is a boss? ha what a joke, this guy can easily be killed in just a few swipes. I also find it funny how his clones are supposed to confuse you but they completely fail at doing so. By far the easiest boss in the entire game. - Ihategwyn310

What, really? He's not at the bottom of the list? - KarmalApples

Why isn't this on the bottom

26 Iron Golem

Again for "guarding" one of the best, and most important, areas in the game this boss is a push over. This boss is easily defeated solo, he's even easier if you choose to summon tarkus to help you. Just remember to take down the giant throwing fire bombs at you in the tower, if you don't do that this boss becomes much harder. - Ihategwyn310

Very slow, but powerful boss. You don't want him to hit you. Fortunately, if you're careful, he probably won't hit you. This boss can be easily defeated by summoning the phantom before this boss. - Ornsmoughstein

27 The Fume Knight
28 Taurus Demon

This boss is easy depending on the strategy uses. If you do it right, you can just plunge attack him over and over again, just run back after every plunge to give yourself time to climb the tower. - Ornsmoughstein

This boss is easy especially if you cheese him and just keep plunging off the tower. Also if you're lucky he'll jump back to avoid your hits, and if you're in the right spot he'll jump right off the bridge. - Ihategwyn310

29 Bell Gargoyles

These bosses are almost easier than pinwheel for me. If you can manage to get behind the first one and start swinging away his health will go down relatively quickly. It's even easier if you can kill the first one before the second one comes. Now the second one is a bit trickier because you have to watch out for his fire breath which can do quite a bit of damage if you're not careful. The strategy is pretty much the same though get behind him and slash away.

In addition to this if you're able to summon solaire it makes it very much easier. Though I can see how this boss fight can be more difficult your first play through especially if you don't have help. But if you have good armor, a decent weapon, and solaires help its pretty easy. Another tip, NEVER play defensive. Their fire will make the fight very difficult if you can't press the fight and end it as soon as possible.

30 Champion Gundyr
31 Demon Firesage

Easiest boss in the demon ruins. If you have a good set of armor, good shield, good weapon, plenty of flasks, and a good strategy this guy is a push over. My strategy for this boss is to stay close to him swing away, and dodge when he does his butt slam attack, or his weapon slam. I just tanked his explosion AOE attack and healed afterwards. It also helps if you can use the grass crest shield if you have heavy weapons or armor. - Ihategwyn310

For being so late in the game, this boss is kind of a joke. You've already fought two bosses almost exactly the same as him, and really, all he has that's different is more fire attacks. He can easily be killed if you know how to kill the Stray Demon. - Ornsmoughstein

This guy took me so long to beat I do not know why he is easy but I am bad at these kinds of fights

32 Moonlight Butterfly Moonlight Butterfly

A relatively easy boss, because it leaves itself completely vulnerable when it comes down to rest, letting you probably get about half of its health down in one rest. The tricky thing is, low-health characters might have a tough time with this boss, because its magic can be a one-hit kill. Luckily, his magic can be easily evaded. - Ornsmoughstein

This boss is a easily killed if you have witch beatrice summoned, if you have your own magic, or a combination of both. Even without the help this boss is really easy, just avoid her magic attacks and attack when she comes down to rest. - Ihategwyn310

When it comes down destroy it only hard part lasers

This guy is a cakewalk, especially with the NPC summon. - MKBeast

33 Asylum Demon

Probably the easiest boss in the game in hindsight, but can be tricky for new Dark Souls players, considering it is the first boss. Luckily, you get a free plunging attack which will give you a great advantage over him. - Ornsmoughstein

Very easy after your first play through. When I started NG+ I killed him normally, and without even taking a hit. However when I start my next play through I'm going to kill him the first time you encounter him because I want to try out his weapon - Ihategwyn310

34 Abyss Watchers
35 Old Dragonslayer

This isn't quite a hard boss, but if you are a noob it could be a hard boss.
