Also, starting with this post I'll keep an updated list of how many bosses are left from each game.
Dark Souls- 15
Dark Souls II- 18
Dark Souls III- 22
Dark Souls III
"Ok, there's a creepy looking cup on the table, guess I should interact with it... oh snap, I'm in the Abyss! I'm just gonna walk through slowly... holy crap, giant skeleton boss!!"
That was basically my first thoughts seeing this boss. Wolnir is an impressively intimidating boss, easily dwarfing the player and the fact that he's the only thing you can see adds to the creep factor.
Unfortunately, Wolnir is a bit of a pushover. The method of bringing him down is pretty obvious; hit the three glowing bracelets until they break. Wolnir has a few attacks that I kind of didn't notice, such as slamming his arm into the ground. I recently learned he can summon smaller skeletons and wields a sword. He does, however, have some kind of mist around him that will utterly decimate you if you're not careful.
Ages ago the Lords of Carthus were all brought to their knees by the conquerer Wolnir, who then crowned himself High Lord. He was eventually succumbed to the Abyss and, truly fearing the dark, pleaded to the gods, who gave him his bracelets. After you defeat him he is finally overtaken by the very thing he was afraid of.
54) Capra Demon
Let's be straight up here, the Capra Demon itself is not a hard boss. It has fairy easy to dodge or block moves, and even becomes a regular enemy later in the game.
What does make this fight utter bull is that he is fought in a very small area with two undead dogs. I don't like fighting the dogs at any point, let alone in the middle of a boss fight. The assault from all the three is enough to overwhelm any unsuspecting new player.
Like with the Ruin Sentinels, the key is to divide and conquer. Run up the conveniently placed stairs and get the quicker dogs to follow you. From there if you can take them out, you have a good vantage point to keep the Demon at bay, either with a plunge attack or hitting him when he drops down.
Why is this fight so high on the list? The other fights you've had up to this point have been fairly easy, such as the Taurus Demon and Moonlight Butterfly, and suddenly you're met with one that serves as a reminder to newer players that if you get too cocky (I am majorly guilty of this) something will come along to put you in your place. It is, in essence, what the game is all about.
The fight isn't fair? Welcome to Dark Souls!
53) Halflight, Spear of the Church
Dark Souls III
I never played Demon's Souls, but I know that the concept for this fight originated from that game.
Gwyn, being the paranoid chump he is, decided to contain the Pygmies at the end of the world in the form of granting them the beautiful Ringed City and his youngest daughter, Filianore. Filianore's slumber would keep the Ringed City in a pristine state, and (theoretically) keep the pygmies from ever wanting to leave.
The Spears of the Church were duty bound to protect Filianore's slumber, and a member would be summoned to deal with any intruders. Thus, you then fight Halflight as a regular NPC, and he's not really that hard or memorable.
If you're playing online, you will instead be forced to take on a real player. This means your experience will vary greatly depending on the skill gap between the two of you. And know this, world...
I SUCK AT PVP!!!!
There, I said it. The concept is still cool, though.
52) The Last Giant
Dark Souls II
Remember how I said you went back in time and fought the Giant Lord? Well at the beginning of the game you discover this guy still alive (as alive as anyone in Dark Souls can be) and when he sees you, boy does he get pissed.
The Giant then proceeds to break the restraints that were holding him in place in an effort to fight you. While the opening cinematic is awesome, the fight itself is ok at best. Like most giant fights, your objective is to bite at those ankles til he's done. But remembering that he accidentally left his sword at home, he decides to rip off an arm to use as a weapon. I'm sticking to this guy like glue, not sure why he thought he needed a longer weapon.
I actually enjoy this fight, because it was only the first time to fight a giant in this game (you face like 5 more!) and the lore behind him is awesome. King Vendrick was convinced by his Queen Nashandra to invade the giant's home (of New York?) and steal something valuable from them. Well the giants weren't happy about that and brought war to Drangleic. This guy was their king, and according to his name, the last of his kind.
The player can be such a jerk sometimes.
