Hardest Boss Elden Ring Rating: 10 Boss Battles That Will Make You Rage Quit

Elden Ring is the latest install from FromSoftware, who are probably the creators of the most challenging games like Dark Souls, Sekiro and Bloodborne. Maintaining the philosophies of those games, this is no stranger to throwing ridiculously cruel bosses at players. The bosses in these games are notorious for being really punishing. Now that the game is up for some time, here are the ten most powerful bosses in the Elden Ring.

The 10 toughest bosses in the Elden Ring have been ranked

Elden-Ring-Glintstone-Dragon-Smarag-Boss- Guide

10. All Dragons

Once you reach the Dragon-Burnt Ruins just east of the starting location, you will see the Flying Dragon Agheel. Stop, it’s a giant dragon that’s flying and engulfing the whole earth with fire! It sounds great at first, but then you realize that all it does is just one snapshot of you. The use of flasks is of no value here. You won’t be able to use it because everything is killing you. Her attack patterns are easily readable, but one mistake goes back to square one. Apply this knowledge when facing the Glintstone Dragons, Greyll, or even Decaying Ekzykes.

9. Guardian Dragon Tree

If you thought Tree Sentinel from the start of the game was bad, wait until you get close to the capital, Leyndell. The Draconic Tree Sentinel is an upgraded version of the regular Sentinel, and features a wide range of magical attacks. Before, you just had to count it running towards you and swinging. Now you have to worry about the lighting blankets, the horse’s firing fireballs, and the worst part ever, the tracking lighting screws.

Astel-Naturalborn

8. Estelle, Natural Born From Void

While carrying out Ranni’s mission, Astel will be one of the last bosses you fight. This is a huge dragonfly-like creature that resides in a huge yard. The aesthetics may be very nice, but it has so many long range and defensive attacks that you have to respect its mid-range area. Get too close and she might explode due to her pink magic or shock waves. Go too far and you’ll explode with a laser attack.

Also, locking the big bosses messes with the camera a lot. In some cases, motion sickness can be caused by its choppy movements and teleportation.

Malekith-the-black-blade

7. Cleric Beast / Malekith, The Black Blade

The head of the story has two parts. First, getting through Crumbling Farum Azula is painful because of all the powerful enemies, including the Draconic Tree Sentinel at the front gate. Once you finally reach the Beast Clergyman, he doesn’t give in for a moment. It charges you, throws projectiles at you and creates a lot of AoE attacks that make it hard to get in without taking damage. Once his health drops to 50%, the fight moves to Maliketh, The Black Blade.

Melketh is more graceful and violent towards you. Now he has more jumping and combo moves where, if you block one, it drains all of your energy. With a broken posture, you’re basically dead. The damage caused by his sword bleeding drains your health in an instant. Even if you use the four stilts in the arena, he can easily fill the gap and in some cases, hit you behind.

Elden Ring - Final - Coach - First Form

6. The radagon of the golden system

This is the first shape of the last trainer on the Elden Ring. Radagon can look pretty straightforward with his short range melee attacks and package projectiles. While that’s true, this boss does have a bunch of slam moves that are a little tricky to avoid the damage from. Since this boss has two forms, it’s ideal to have as many flasks as possible, so when you enter the second stage, there is a higher chance of surviving as it hits you with its own devastating set of moves. Radagon isn’t very difficult per se, but it’s more troublesome to lower the vial count when you reach the second stage.

Elden-Ring-Fallingstar-Monster

5. Fallingstar Monster

For all the mutilated poor who have fallen due to the trap box in the ruins of the Burning Dragon, Fallingstar Beast is a beast that will put many into a swift grave and crush gravity. When you enter her field, it is almost in your face. You have a little time to respond before she attacks you or makes a crazy purple gravitational move. Not to mention, it’s roughly the same size as it lives in captivity. If you get stuck in any of his moves, it’s game over. Unless you’re a strength and back level, this boss is basically going to be a skill test.

4. Crucible Knight

How bad is a knight in giant armor? Well, if you make the unfortunate decision to go to Stormhill Evergaol, you will fight this guy. He doesn’t flinch, so heavy weapons users will feel bad about it. Pair this with his surprisingly devious ensemble. It’s hard to get a few hits on him without bouncing off his shield or getting caught by a random dash of his sword.

Even worse, this simple boss tank has a second stage where it sprouts wings and starts charging at you. Take that, magical users, you can’t beat yourself up about everything with your Glintstone builds.

3. Godskin Duo

Both Godskin Apostle and Noble are annoying in their own right. Their hit boxes are weird and both have weirdly graceful second stages that consist of covering a lot of ground projectiles and shooting. Now, put them together and what you have is a nightmare. Imagine having to run as the noble rolls towards you while the messenger shoots you from afar. You better have the stamina to be able to move the spam to safety, or you’re looking at a fighting headache in Crumbling Farum Azula.

Elden Ring Mog

2. Mohg, Lord of Blood

After the White-Faced Varre mission, you’ll fight an optional boss who will be crucial to getting to the bad end of the Elden Ring. Mohg, Lord of Blood, is the definition of “BS” mechanics in a Souls-like game. His move range is mostly easy to handle in his first stage, but then when you get him to below 50% he will start this evil chant as he will cast this blood spell across the entire screen which can’t be prevented or evaded. It causes fatal damage and astounds you.

You’ll need to get the Purifying Crystal Tear and immerse it in a Physics Wonder flask. If you ever consume this while fighting, the full blood spell in its second transitional form will be completely invalidated. Then you still have to deal with its second winged form. He’s much more agile, literally covering a lot of ground with his blood and fiery movements, and much harder to hit. Blood loss surges are so annoying to deal with, that you waste a lot of vials to recover.

Elden Ring Starskorg Radan

1. Starskorg Radan

The biggest villain in the Elden Ring is none other than a war meadow with a funny little horse. Starscourge Radahn easily takes the top spot for the toughest bosses at the Elden Ring. One wrong move is all it takes for you to lose against the Legendary Half. Since the developers know it is very difficult, it seems that you have to summon all the NPCs from Earth to fight on your side. I can’t imagine how you would fight it without them.

Elden Ring is still a good game, but that doesn’t mean we can’t shout about some of the toughest, headache-inducing bosses. However, that sense of satisfaction after taking down the greatest enemies is unparalleled in a video game.
