Looking Back: The Absolute Hardest Dark Souls Bosses of All Time

7 of 7

Soul of Cinder

Dark Souls 3

The final boss of Dark Souls 3, the Soul of Cinder is a fittingly difficult encounter.

Starting off with a simple one-handed sword fight, he quickly begins adding movesets to his repertoire. Transforming his sword into a stave or catalyst, his fighting styles quickly raise the stakes.

Fire magic, homing missiles, healing, and a dozen other abilities, the Soul of Cinder easily has the most extensive list of abilities in the game.

And after his first health bar is depleted, he will heal himself and stop holding back. He becomes faster, hits harder, and can use a Sunlight Spear ability that has three different forms.

His typical sword form can be dealt with as with Gwyn from the first Dark Souls but beware his ultimate combo. If caught in it, he can juggle the player with his blows then slam them into the ground with a fiery explosion. This single combo is enough to completely deplete a player's health if you aren't careful.


Now you know the hardest Dark Souls bosses and what to expect, if you can get past the hair-pulling madness of dying over and over again long enough to defeat them, then you can take on anything. But if we have forgotten any of the hardest Souls bosses, let us know in the comments below!
