Elden Ring is the latest Soulsborne game developed by FromSoftware. For this list, we will dive into the most challenging bosses in Elden Ring. Tread carefully; these enemies will overwhelm you and test how determined you are to defeat them. The upcoming fights with these bosses will be a challenge; it is up to the player to make them bend their knees.

This Top 10 list has been selected from 100 boss encounters in Elden Ring; we will look into the Top 10 Hardest Bosses to provide a general overview of each boss and their location. This list is perfect for players ready to face the deadliest foes. That said, pick up your weapons, as this list will test your patience.

Margit, The Fell

Description: Margit is a mid-game boss encountered before entering Stormveil castle, defeating newbies and veterans. At this point, the difficulty depends on what has become of your game progress. Those grinding for items and attributes before reaching this point in the game may defeat the boss quickly, but most would stumble upon him trying to progress in the story. With his polearm, Margit has an incredible range that will test the player’s skills and the variety of attacks and combos; this boss means business. Aside from the polearm, Margit has daggers that reach you at a distance; trying to heal yourself or regroup to use other items will require you to keep your guard up. When you reach his third phase, Margit becomes more aggressive and introduces you to his hammer, with longer combos. There are only a few windows of opportunity to attack, but that is where the real struggle awaits as the windows open randomly, making it hard to predict.

Location: Stormhill, at the entrance to the Legacy Dungeon: Stormveil Castle.

Starscourge Radahn

Description: This boss’s name, Starscourge, is no joke; he will enter the arenalike a falling meteor. Covered in rot, this is better tackled as a group, but go in alone; he’ll make your life a living hell. If you decide to go one-on-one with this giant, you would need to get in range, and hopefully, your evasion skills are on point as he will throw soul spears and send a barrage of arrows your way. The timing required needs to be on point as the window to evade is very short. Once you are close enough, be aware that despite his size, the speed of Radahns attacks will knock you down before you even have a chance to think.

Location: Chamber Outside the Plaza Site of Grace

Lichdragon Fortisaxx

Description: Similar to Ancient Dragon Lansseax, Fortisaxx is more dangerous than his ancient counterpart. This beast knows to cover all angles on its body, be it from his sides, behind, underneath him, or takes it to the skies. His roars will send personal attacks that shock you and add clouds of death that will stick to your body for a particular time. With their intense speed and heavily aggressive attacks, fighting Fortisaxx will make you run and hide.

Location: After giving Fia the Cursemark of Death, she will move to the Prince of Death’s Throne, talk to her three times and choose to enter the Deathbed Dream.

Dragonlord Placidusax

Description: During the first phase, the two-headed dragons’ range of attacks is similar to Fortisaxx. You’ll be able to have small windows of opportunity to punish the beast, but once you enter his second phase, a dragon of this size shouldn’t be allowed move as fast as it can, but it does. On top of that, Placidusax can teleport during those short windows and dive right into you once it reappears. Making a mistake here will cost their player their life.

Location: Crumbling Farum Azula

Morgott, The Omen King

Description: Morgott is relentless with its aggressive attacks, hunting you down with its sword or spear; you would need to watch his sword closely to avoid his swings. Be prepared for his off-hand attacks as it can throw light daggers and a spear with such a great hitbox that rolling to avoid it will slice you up from the side. Another attack to note is when he uses his light abilities to split the area into smaller sections, limiting your movement when it is already hard to evade his rush attacks. In his final phase, Morgott has an AoE that covers the entire arena floor, which can burst an attack from underneath you if you are not too careful. The Omen Kings’ attacks and recovery are either random or quick, so taking the time to recover may not be an option.

Location: Leyndell, Royal Capital

Mohg, Lord of Blood

Description: The Lord of Blood starts with blood flames and trident swipes, which is challenging but not too tricky until he reaches his second phase. This boss battle will use your blood against you to power himself up by stealing your health and adding it to its health bar. The area constantly spews blood and flames at every turn, demolishing your health bar. His movement and attacks are not as varied as the Omen King, but the health bar drain will put you at a disadvantage at all times.

Location: Mohgwyn Palace

Maliketh, The Black Blade

Description: This beast clergy is not a friendly animal, with Area of Effect attacks with a massive range that requires you to dodge each attack perfectly. Any openings you think are there are immediately followed by faster and deadly attacks. Once he takes off his cloak, this beast spins and twirls bursts of flames from his sword before soaring into the air and bouncing off walls. Not only can he inflict a health bar burn, but he can also even decrease your maximum health bar. Talk about hitting two birds with one stone! Maliketh will teach you to stop thinking so confidently.

Location: Crumbling Faram Azula

Radagon of the Golden Order and Elden Beast

Description: Two final bosses are a deadly duo. Radagon of the Golden Order can attack you with his golden magic at any range. Getting an opening from his randomized attacks isn’t easy as evading is the aim of this boss battle, but if you are lucky enough to dodge these to get some hits in, you would be alive long enough to reach the Elden Beast that follows right after. However, the Elden Beast focuses on magic and attack from any range like Radagon. The Elden Beasts’ blood thirst to kill you will throw a barrage of arrows that will make you run for your life, which seems like forever to end. Some attacks are paired with orbs of light that follow you and come from all sides until you run. Even if they do, it will not deal as much damage. It is a pain to run away from them as the Elden Beast is already preparing for another attack.

Location: Stone Platform

Godskin Duo

Description: It is nothing new that FromSoftware would put two of the same enemies together. Usually, you would be able to isolate one boss for a versus-one match with both being toned down to have each enemy have a different weakness, but these two do NOT have any differences. Both can enter their enraged phase when their health is at 50%. Does it get worse than that? The answer is it does. Once one of them dies, you would think of getting rid of the second Godskin, yet while you are beating the other, the one you just killed will resurrect. Good luck when they are both fully enraged because they will come after you with everything they have.

Location: Crumbling Faram Azula

Malenia, Blade of Miquella

Description: This is the most demanding boss you will ever meet in Elden Ring, which says a lot, as everything we have covered is too terrifying to face. She is a foe that is nothing you have ever faced, as her barrage of sword attacks has a life-steal ability and not one that picks off your health bar; she will drain you and fill up her own by a lot, putting you up against the wall more than ever. Did we mention this was her first phase? Each time her blade slices your character’s body, she regains her health points.

With each mistake you make, the more she gains, the upper hand. Even if you try to dodge as many attacks as possible, she is too quick for you to spam that button. There are barely any openings when she jumps in the air and speedily slashes your entire body. Running away from her in the area is not a strategy either. She will dash towards you from the other side of the area without a sweat. Roll to the side, and go underneath it; whatever you do, you will take some damage no matter what.

She is the peak evolution of all bosses that FromSoftware has ever designed. A godly foe that will take you too many times to adjust your inventory to find the right build to defeat her.

Location: Bottom of Elphael, Brace of the Haligtree

Patience is Key for the Hardest Bosses in Elden Ring!

The bosses in this list are overwhelming, but there are people out there who were able to defeat them. It will not take only one try to kill them; some have even died more than 40 times trying to kill one. Trust in your skills and combat knowledge. All you need is time and practice to become the Elden Lord, but sooner or later, you will get there in the end.
