Dark Souls II
Ok, hold on a second. Why is this guy not riding a dragon? That's your name, dummy!
These are: supposed to be the loyal knights of King Vendrick, but they kinda suck at doing their job. He's incredibly easy to dodge and gives you plenty of opportunities to dodge his attacks. That's assuming you pull both levers in the proceeding area to widen the arena. If you didn't, and you dodge at just the right time, he'll plummet right off the side, making for an absolutely hilarious sight.
Dark Souls II unfortunately feels like they over padded the game with bosses, and a bunch of them are just armored guys with spears, and the Dragonrider unfortunately gets buried at the bottom of the pile.
This dude is kinda cool I guess. It's nothing special but still interesting. I think the end of the list is a decent place for this guy. To be honest the only reason this guy is even hard is because you have to make the gauntlet run before you fight him.
70) Stray Demon
So I mentioned yesterday that the first game contains three bosses that are just reskins of each other, and the Stray Demon is likely the second you will encounter. You can actually spot this guy at the very beginning of the game just outside of your asylum cell, but it won't be until you return later that you take on this monster.
Stray Demon is probably the least unique of the three clones, but does stand out a little bit by being the one that gave me the most trouble. That freakin' AoE attack will destroy you in seconds if you're not careful. I did manage to defeat it by staying close to it's booty (which would make a Kardashian extremely jealous), getting some hits in, back off a bit during the AoE, repeat.
Another Stray Demon actually appears in Dark Souls III as a mini-boss that seems to be made of some sort of stone or similar build, and will crumble if you hit the same area repeatedly.
Hey let's fight that same guy again! Oh boy! Don't get me wrong he's kinda fun I guess, and pretty challenging. But really? I've already fought this guy 2 other times.
69) Skeleton Lords
Dark Souls II
Let me start this one by saying that I don't dislike the Skeleton Lords. Like I mentioned, Dark Souls II has so many bosses that a couple were bound to be forgettable for me, and these skellies fall into that bunch.
The Old Iron King used to host "undead hunts" and these Lords were tasked with leading these expeditions. Eventually they also succumbed to the curse, becoming that which they hunted.
I do like the concept of defeating a boss only for it to split into more baddies, but this fight wasn't particularly difficult, so I sort of forgot about it. The area you fight them in is pretty cool with all the structures made of bone, so they get points there.
I hope you like skeletons because this boss is really just a lot of them. No really you go into a room and for each skeleton you kill part of the bosses health meter goes down. That's it. This boss is basically the same as any room in the catacombs. Yeah.....let's move on.
68) Giant Lord
Dark Souls II
Remember the giant you fought towards the beginning of the game? Ever wonder why he seemed so pissed at you?
Once you receive the Ashen Mist Heart from the Ancient Dragon (screw that guy!) you are able to revisit moments in the past during the war between Drangleic and the giants. In one such encounter you face off against their king, the Giant Lord.
This fight takes place in the middle of an epic battle. You find yourself on top of a high wall where Vendrick's soldier are duking it out with giants, there's fire raining down from the sky, etc. It's a neat sight.
This is literally the exact same fight as the beginning of the game, with the exception being that the Giant Lord damages you more. You're also more likely to be killed by the fire than this guy though.
Not a bad fight, but it's something we've seen several times in the same game.
Well this fight you have to get sucked into a tree before hand. At least the guys kinda cool. He swings his giant sword down upon you and fireballs rain from the sky. I would say semi decent boss, but nothing super exciting.
