Elden Ring Hardest Bosses – Top 3!

Elden Ring is full of bosses in nearly every corner of the map, and depending on the player, some are much harder than others. Plenty of the bosses within the game will vary in difficulty based on the level of a player and their build. However, there are some that are objectively challenging to take down, regardless of level and the weapon being used. Below, you can find which bosses are a true test of skill that rewards any Elden Ring player with bragging rights.

Some bosses like Margit the Fell Omen in Elden Ring will be considered hard by most, but if players go back to fight him in a new game or in Journey 2, he goes down quick. The hardest bosses in Elden Ring are ones that seem impossible at first and only get harder with each new journey, even after learning them so well. Their movesets and damage are unmatched, and each one has earned a place in FromSoftware infamy.

General Radahn, Conquerer of the Stars

This massive boss is sure to tear players apart in their first encounter and it doesn’t get much easier with each attempt. The fight is even designed in a way for players to summon five different NPCs throughout the battle. In other words, the whole thing is essentially a raid where Radahn has the capability to take anyone out in one good hit. With plenty of practice, the fight can become much easier, but good luck to anyone who tries this out without using the NPC summons.

Malekith, the Black Blade

Players who are closing in on the end of the game must first take down Malekith, the Black Blade before moving onto the city of ash. Malekith has two different phases, one that starts as Gurranq and the other that is the boss in his full glory. Gurranq uses all kinds of bestial attacks and ranged rock strikes that make evasion difficult. Malekith then does on to use a massive sword with energy strikes and nonstop flips to confuse players. The fight requires intense focus and patience that most other bosses don’t force.

Malenia, Blade of Miquella

Without a doubt, Malenia is the hardest boss in Elden Ring and is even contender for one of the hardest bosses in a FromSoftware game. Even with high levels and a summon, Malenia has the potential to instantly end the fight. Her waterfowl strikes are incredibly difficult to dodge and they are consistent. On top of that, her attacks heal her on every hit, so passive play does not work well. That all sounds bad until she starts phase two where she becomes more aggressive and causes scarlet rot. The good news is that she is optional.

Other Difficult Bosses in Elden Ring

There are a few other bosses in the game that could be argued as some of the most difficult fights, but their subjective difficulty keeps them out of the top three. Mohg and the Fire Giant are two examples of bosses that are sure to destroy players at first and will get more difficult with each new journey.

Commander Niall is another contender due to his massive area of effect ice attacks and the two minions that he has to help him. Like so many other bosses in the game though, there are builds and summons that can make the fight much more manageable in comparison.
