There has been a lot of criticism surrounding the boss battles in Dark Souls II. Some people think they’re generic while others think they’re the best they’ve ever been. I’m right in the middle. Some of the bosses are really well designed while others were just disappointing and really easy to beat without any help whatsoever. Not every boss on this list was hard to beat. I just really enjoyed fighting them and eventually beating them to a pulp. So let my list of top 5 best bosses for Dark Souls II begin!
5. The Lost Sinner
I can’t think of a better boss to start my list. The lore behind the Lost Sinner is what made me like her so much. She wasn’t an incredibly difficult boss to beat, but I loved fighting her. I even helped random people beat her by leaving my summon sign on the ground just so I could fight her again. This fight is a lot harder on new game plus. Not only will you be fighting her, but you’ll also have to defeat two pyromancers. Good luck with that…
4. Executioners Chariot
This fight was a ton of fun. It wasn’t your average boss fight by any means. First you had to limit his mobility crashing chariot, but in order to do that you have to constantly dodge his high speed attacks while fighting off legions of undead skeletons and mages that can’t die. This was a tricky fight, but by no means a challenging one. I just really love the way this boss looks and fighting the horse was badass.
3. The Pursuer
I first encountered The Pursuer while I was out exploring my surrounding. A giant bird dropped him off right in front of me. All of my attacks did very little damage on him and he killed me with a single hit. I love the way this thing looks. It’s huge and will close the gap quickly to try and deliver some nasty blows to your character. The Pursuer was tough and killed me twice before I finally managed to beat to him. This was one of the funnest boss fights in the game for me. Here’s a heads up to anyone that has not completed Dark Souls II yet. If you don’t want spoilers than please stop reading now. You have been warned.
2. NashandraNashandra is the boss of the game. Honestly she was really disappointing to fight because I killed her on my first try, but the lore surrounding her is amazing and really made her standout to me. I love the fact that she was really the big evil thing in the game for you to beat and not the king. The king is just rotting away in some hellhole. The queen was the one with all the power and the more I found out about her the more I loved her.
1. Every Dark Souls fan should want to fight this guy. This is one of the optional boss fights in the game, but it’s by far the most satisfying one. This dragon packs one hell of a punch and will give you a challenge. His fire breath can one hit you if you don’t have good fire resistance. When I first saw this guy my first thought was to try and kill him because I really needed a tough boss fight and I’m glad that he didn’t disappoint.
Dark Souls II is a really good game. Is it better than Dark Souls though? You’ll have to wait for my review to get my opinion on that. I might write a whole article comparing the two games.
I’m currently working on my list of top 5 most disappointing bosses in Dark Souls II. It will be up tonight or tomorrow morning followed by my official Dark Souls II Review.
