Elden Ring Hardest Bosses and Enemies Ranked

This guide lists the Top 10 Hardest Boss Fights in Elden Ring and lets you know why they are so tough but worth defeating.

Elden Ring is filled to the brim with various bosses and enemies. In classic FromSoftware style, many of these are very Challenging. In this guide, we will cover details about the toughest boss, the final boss, and list the top enemies you’ll face in Elden Ring.

Who is the Hardest Boss in Elden Ring

There are many bosses in Elden Ring that you can find difficult to beat. But from all of them Malenia, Blade of Miquella is by far the hardest boss in Elden Ring. Malenia is the definition of FromSoftware boss difficulty.

Malenia has fast long combos and incredible speed, and with this, her attacks recover her health. Now we don’t really like it when the boss heals once or twice in a fight, but a boss healing every time she hits you, that’s just rude.

Fighting Malenia mostly turns into a very defensive battle, as any combo she uses will, in turn, heal her prolonging the fight.

Now after you kill her, she isn’t dead and comes back as Malenia, Goddess of Rot. At this point, she shows you how she was able to stand against Radahn on her own and earn herself the rank of the most difficult boss in Elden Ring.

Malenia, retaining her speed and agility, now deals Scarlet Rot, the worst ailment in the game after death of course. You receive so much damage when inflicted with Scarlet Rot and it persists for quite a while, so in a battle where you are already faced with the hardest boss in Elden Ring, you also have to deal with Scarlet Rot.

She even has massive AoE attacks that rapidly inflict rot, making approaching her very very risky. Fortunately, she herself is vulnerable to all the ailments in the game and have low poise, any heavy weapon can stun-lock her to a degree, making the fight somewhat balanced…not really though.

Who is the Final Boss

There are two final bosses in the Elden Ring, First, you have to fight with Radagon of the Golden Order and then at last with the Elden Beast. This final boss fight is split between them.

This fight can also be considered one of the most difficult boss fights in Elden Ring. First, you have to fight with the Radagon of the Golden Order who is the second husband of Queen Marika.

Radagon of the Golden Order is a ruined human boss that is quite a difficult to beat boss in Elden Ring.

This boss is quite difficult, but the challenge comes not from fighting Radagon alone. The really difficult part is the second phase where you must now take down the Elden beast.

The Elden Beast is actually the final boss you are going to face in Elden Ring. It is a gargantuan otherworldly creature that attacks you with powerful golden imbued attacks.

For defeating the Elden Beast, you will be rewarded with the 500,000 Runes, a “God Felled” message and the ability to enter New Game plus.
