|Bloodborne Bosses: Ranked|
Stole this list idea from OvDeath because I just bought a Playstation and bear Bloodborne (which instantly became a top 5 GOAT for me). No DLC or chalice bosses included.
The Stage Names
Cleric Beast: Difficulty 2/10, Lore 2/10, Design 3/10
Boss will probably be the firs you face. It's a big beast that jumps and stomps around. Dodge, hit, repeat. Not the easiest boss but he's close.
Celestial Emmisary: Difficulty 3/10, Lore 3/10, Design 1/10
Boss fight is sort of gimmicky but not in a cool way. You fight a horde of enemies (which you've encountered before) until you hit the right one enough for it to become really big. Lore-wise, not much is known at all unless you're really stretching with the implications that he's some sort of midway between humans and the Great Ones. Could be true but who cares?
Dimensions Of Horror
Blood Starved Beast: Difficulty 8/10, Lore 2/10, Design 7/10
I had unusual difficulty with this boss. I spent hours facing him, dying, then having to stockpile items again. The whole process was grueling. The saving grace was the breathtaking arena and very savage looking beast design. All in all the boss was a boring annoyance.

Revival of the Shittest
The One Reborn: Difficulty 5/10, Lore 5/10, Design 2/10
The arena and casters were a nice touch to an otherwise shit boss. The One Reborn was "kinda" tough with "sorta" cool lore. Castlevania perfected (to death) the "monster made up of limbs and bodies" and sent it off to be overused. The One Reborn is pretty underwhelming. Added to that the fight is just running and hitting until you kill it. Being in the worst area doesn't help its case either.
The Great Depression
Witch of Hemwick: Difficulty 1/10, Lore 2/10, Design 5/10
Honestly the Witch of Hemwick was terrible. There's no lore, she can be killed without taking any hits, and her arena is pretty forgettable. However, the area leading up to her was perfect. Charnel Lane was majestic in its dark, brooding atmosphere. It felt like a throwback to the decrepit European town seen in RE4. Furthermore, her fight was gimmicky but it was interesting.
Fire From the Sky
Shadow of Yahrnam: Difficulty 10/10, Lore 3/10, Design 2/10
I hated the forest and I hated this boss. The design was uninspired the snakes at the end were cheap and frustrating. Props to this boss for being the one that made me break my "solo only" rule.
A Blaze in the Northern Sky
Darkbeast Paarl: Difficulty 6/10, Lore 3/10, Design 8/10
Fast, unpredictable electrical skeleton beast. Pretty much sums it up.
Martyr Logarius: Difficulty 7/10, Lore 6/10, Design 3/10
This weird wizard looking skeleton guy was pretty remarkable in some respects. Cainhurst Castlewas pretty cool too. However, it didn't feel like Bloodborne. The whole affair had a Dark Souls vibe to it, standing in stark contrast to the hellish Lovecraftian feel of everything leading up to him. A great boss but definitely caused some cognitive dissonance.
Amygdala: Difficulty 2/10, Lore 8/10, Design 6/10
Big stompy boss that goes down easy. Nothing terribly great but the boss reeks of the nightmarish Lovecraftian influence that permeates the game.
This Is Acting
Ebrietas: Difficulty 3/10, Lore, 9/10, Design 10/10
I love the look of this boss. I love the almost tragic lore of her as well. I beat her by pure luck judging from her status as one of the harder bosses, but it was still a fun ride.
Vicar Amelia: Difficulty 6/10, Lore 5/10, Design 8/10
Really cool fight that stands as the best "big stomping boss" of the game--and maybe the series. She's a tortured wolf like creature who was transformed from a petite girl. The cathedral is beautiful and the bosses mechanics (healing) were very cool.
|12||The Pink Spiders|
The Pink Spiders Are Taking Over!
Rom, the Vacuous Spide: Difficulty 5/10, Lore 7/10, Design 8/10
There's a lot to hate about Rom. She sort of looks like a turd with a child's head. The spiders are annoying too. Oh and she's cheap as hell because getting one-shotted is incredibly easy. However, the level is unsettling and unique which goes a long way in making the fight unique. She has a tragic story too, which ties into the rest of the game. Furthermore, the spiders are a wonderful distraction until you realize that you don't need to fight them. All around a weird but amazing fight.
|13||My Chemical Romance|
Micolash: Difficulty 3/10, Lore 7/10, Design 10/10
God this level was annoying...but rewarding. There's nothing in the game, or series, quite like it. The real clincher in Micolash was how comforting it was to encounter another person. Yes he was deranged and had a gruesome past, but it was refreshing to come in contact with another lucid person after dozens of hours of horrors. I found this to be exceptional, as I felt a loneliness after killing him.
Under the Moonspell
Moon Presence: Difficulty 4/10, Lore 8/10, Design 10/10
Beautiful level, creepy design, and inspired lore make this a winner...despite being a pretty lame fight in general.
|15||Margot & the Nuclear So and So's|
Mergo's Wet Nurse: Difficulty 2/10, Lore 5/10, Design 10/10
Very cool fight and incredible boss design. She's incredibly simple to take down but mixed with the lore and aesthetics she's a good boss. Not fit for a potentially "finale" boss, however, so if you chose the "good" ending she may disappoint. I did forget about her which is why she's so high, but I don't mind calling her one of the better ones.
Gehrman: Difficulty 9/10, Lore 8/10, Design 5/10
Basiclally a hunter fight but cranked up to 10. He's fiendishly difficult and unrelenting. The battlefield is marvelous and his fighting movements are glorious.
Profano Ad Regnum
Father Gascoigne: Difficulty 7/10, Lore 10/10, Design 9/10
Father Gascoigne is everything Bloodborne is: frenetic, gruesome, tragic, and dark. He's the first boss and he's a perfect enemy to cut your teeth on. The close quarters make for a tense and riveting fight as he weaves in and out of tombstone clusters just as you. What's so wonderful about him is his story, which offers an emotionally affecting look at the humans behind the hunt. No one comes close to Father Gascoigne in terms of personality and intensity of the battle.
|Good ass game|
|yeah good choice man|
|I've played through the game 4ish times and I've yet to die to BSB|
|martyr logarius was by far the best boss in the game|
|MOON presence was a let down yeah|
|I was spectacularly bad at his fight (BSB)|
|my fav boss is ludwig from the dlc. when that music kicks in when phase 2 starts, holy shit dude|
|need to add the dlc bosses for sure|
|I don't need to do anything this is my list and if you don't like it I'm going home and taking it with me|
|still really wanna get this|
|top 2 are in my top 3 for sure, gehrman is a perfect final boss|
|Making me want to play this again and I've played through it like 3 times already.|
|I want to finish my second play through but I'm playing DS2 and Dragon Age right now|
|this game is much better than ds2 and slightly better than ds3|
1st dark souls is total money
|So far I'm digging DS2 but not fawning over it. I think I like DS1 better but neither comes close to Bloodborne for me|
|I didn't really dig this game as much as the dark souls games, but yeah it was still pretty phenomenal. Ebrietas was easily the hardest for me|
|Just beat a few DS2 bosses and man the offerings here are pretty lame. Haven't marveled at a single boss yet. The arena for the Skeleton Lords was cool though.|
|posting mine now|
|I want to play this so fucking bad but I really can't justify buying a PS4 for it.|
|DS3 will impress you more in the boss department. DS2 has the biggest shitfest line-up of bosses ever.|
This list is cool but I haven't played Bloodborne so I have a hard time relating to any of it!
|On the topic of boss fights has anyone here played shadow of the colossus? thats literally all the game was lol|
|Agreed. Playing the Chariot boss now and it's the coolest so far but it took a gimmick for me to take notice (it's like a Zelda fight)|
|I just killed the Covetous Demon wtf wast that fight?? Still love the game but damn the fights are disappointing.|
