Well, maybe not today's batch. You'll just have to read for yourself!
75) Royal Rat Vanguard
Dark Souls II
And just like that, we're back to DS2, and today we kick off with the Rat King's other test for us. This time it just involves a big group of rats swarming in to a room in the Grave of Saints, and it's up to us to play the exterminator.
Eventually a rat with a mohawk shows up to try and do anything differently than his common brethren, but doesn't manage to pull that off very well.
This fight doesn't really have much to it, but it is kind of fun to go rat smashing for a bit.
Royal rat vanguard:
Every souls game needs a boss that's not really a boss but more of a swarm right? Wrong. This boss is just that though. Nothing special but I guess it's okay. This boss would probably be at the rear of my list.
74) Demon of Song
Dark Souls II
Man, DS2 can't catch a break.
If I thought the Greatwood was the most disgusting boss in the series, Demon of Song definitely takes the cake for creepiest.
You walk in through the fog gate after trekking through the Shrine of Amana (my absolute least favorite area in the series!) to see a giant, frog-like creature with a covered up face across the arena from you. You quickly learn that attacking the outer shell does no damage to the beast.
That's when it pulls the cover back and reveals a disturbing skull face and creepy arms and tries to grab you. No thank you.
Like the Greatwood, this fight isn't difficult, but it's one I want to be over as quick as possible.
Demon of song:
This dude is creepy. And really dark souls 2? This is the guy your going to make me fight after spending hours upon hours of trudging through the shrine of amana? This guy? The one who dies super easy? Wow just wow. I would at least expect something cool after you put me through that awful area before hand, but I guess not. Let's just move along.
I'm not bitter or anything.
73) Champion's Gravetender and Gravetender Greatwolf
Dark Souls III
It's going to be a little bit before you see another DLC boss come up. Most are good, but this one just doesn't do it for me.
The fight takes place in the Painted World of Ariendel (which I didn't particularly enjoy, to be honest) and you fight the Gravetender and a few normal wolf enemies at the beginning. You'll want to take down this NPC quickly because Sif, I mean, the Royal Rat Authority, wait, no... the Greatwolf is headed to ruin your day. But if this is your third Souls game you should have this fight down to a science by now.
It just seems wasteful to me to rehash fights in buyable content, which locks this entry down low for me.
Champion's gravetender and gravetender greatwolf:
Basically they did this fight again, but not as cool. I kinda dislike this fight too. Don't get me wrong. Darksouls is one of my favorite games of all time, but the bosses here at the back of the list......not that great, and this one is no exception.
72) Demon Firesage
And speaking of fighting essentially the same boss three times continues with our final entry for today. This may actually be the bigger offender because you fight all three of these bosses in the SAME game. Hope you like looking at the Asylum Demon, because he's going to keep popping up as a boss!
Supposedly this guy was once a master of the ancient fire arts, but the Witch of Izalith's attempted recreation of the First Flame caused him and many others to turn into demonic creatures. This would have been a good opportunity for them to showcase a new type of demon, but the just went with a fiery reskin instead.
The Demon Ruins and Lost Izalith contain some of the worst bosses in the original Dark Souls game, but at least the other three are unique.
Yep this is the asalym demon all over again....but with fire. At least he's kinda cool. Well cool is being used very loosely here. Just don't get squished by his big butt and you will be okay.
