When people think of Soulsborne games, the first word that comes to mind is “hard”. Making their mark on the gaming landscape with a focus on precise and challenging gameplay, they’ve come to be known for their punishing enemies and, more notably, difficult bosses. Some are harder to topple than others however, and these bosses in particular are the hardest of the hard.
10. Sir Alonne (Dark Souls 2)
Hardest Soulsborne Bosses
Say what you will about the second installment in the Souls series, but it can’t be denied that some of its bosses posed a legitimate threat to players. Case in point: Sir Alonne, the knight of the Old Iron King who resides within the King’s memory. A wandering warrior from the east, he takes on his opponents with rapid, sweeping blows from a two-handed blade and is capable of parrying blows should player make a hasty attack. As if that weren’t bad enough, players also have a time limit on how long they can fight him. Should they take too long to defeat Alonne, they’ll be forced out of the King’s memory and have to start the battle from scratch, sans any consumable healing items they may have used in the process.
