Top 14 bosses of the Souls Series (and Bloodborne!)

1 of 16

Demon's Souls, Dark Souls, Dark Souls II, Bloodborne. Titles that have become synonymous with exploration, engaging combat, and death after death after death.

From the challenging gameplay to the dark, evocative worlds inspired by Western fantasy and reimagined by FromSoft, Souls and, recently, Souls-like, games have consistently proven their greatness.

Perhaps the biggest cornerstone of the series, though, is the reward at the end of the tunnel. The grand finale to each zone that keeps you wondering: the boss. Often punishing, usually intimidating, the Souls series manages to keep you cautiously guessing about how the next big bad you're going to fight is going to tear you in half.

This is a series that has built up quite a repertoire of iconic battles, but today we're going to try and pare it down to the top 14. With Demon's Souls boasting 19 bosses, Dark Souls 26, Dark Souls II a whopping 32, and Bloodborne at a clean 17 (more if you count those that hide in the hellish grind of the chalice dungeons), this leaves us with 94 bosses to choose from.

Let's get started, shall we?
