    Your Idea for the scariest boss ever?

    Post by Razielthemanslayer on Sun Nov 18, 2012 6:21 am

    The nexus just like firelink shrine was sorta like a sanctuary, where
    nothing could harm you (except for yourself mind you), the sole idea if
    being pitted against an invincible beast there with so much to loose is
    terrifying.

    Keep reading the spoiler if you wanna know how I got my dreadful Idea, if not just ignore it xD.

    Spoiler:
    Some time ago I had a dream where I was playing demon souls (with me being the main character) and after defeating allant in the old one, I returned to the nexus... in the dream the nexus was a 3 times bigger than the normal nexus, and everyone there was scared.... I asked thomas what the heck was going on and he could only point into the ceiling...

    In the dark there was a demon with a form I can't describe very well.... I only knew it moved like a spider with the speed of a lightning and the roar 1 thousand dragons.... I tried to buff my weapon, but the demon was so fast in less than a second he killed me by impaling my and tossing me violently into the air just to horribly crash against the ground resulting in an almost instant death... When I respawned everyone in the nexus was dead, and I just hear it's footsteps coming from behind, I woke up almost sweating xD.

    I can feel chills just thinking about having to fight something like that, the idea of an enemy striking when you feel safest. I think it would be an interesting twist in dark souls if after you receive the lordvessel depending on which serpent you placed it with the other's covenant would be able to invade through your bloodstain whenever you die and go hollow. Some of the most terrifying moments for me have been when a stack of humanity and souls are on the line. This would continue until the end of the game or until you find and defeat a hidden boss much like Gwyndolin.

    The final twist being that the boss would have some sort of stealth or range/ supporyt attacks and be significantly stronger against human players, then if a player died againt the boss an invader would be summoned into the boss area, along with the boss.

    Awesome idea! An ambush at Firelink, maybe right after you placed the Lordvessel or some point late in the game when you have gotten used to it being a dependable haven.

    Maybe your first clue is that the music is slightly off key or something like that. Something that makes you casually say, "Is something different?" And then......:affraid:





    On a side note, though not super original or creative, I always thought fighting a giant scorpion like in Clash of the Titans (not the remake!) would be awesome.





    And I'm certain FROM could really make it an interesting fight. Both his tail and claws could be badass poison weapons!

    Perma ultra-scary boss fights: make players drop gear currently equipped on death to soul stain, along with souls and humanity. Yeah, good luck with those mini heart attacks.


    Idea for scary bossy: Abyss-like area with visibility similar to Catacombs. Boss is not visible in this dark place, except for when he raises either of his claws/paws/arms which would turn RED when it would start swinging, and that's all you can see from said boss during the fight. Even scarier: make this area riddled with fall traps.

    I actually had goosebumps while reading about this. I can only imagine a Cthulu variant. *shivers*

    I was actually thinking about this a while ago when I was trying to convince one of my friends to buy Dark Souls. We got into the discussion of some of the hardest boss fights in the game. I don't exactly remember how it transitioned but we eventually started talking about a surprise boss fight at Firelink shrine.

    I think it would be a great idea being caught of guard when at Firelink Shrine. I always thought a fight with a large mutated drake would be a fun fight to do. Maybe it would be mutated with something from blight town? Like a a mixture between a Drake, a sewer rat, and a basilisk.

    You think you're safe then all of a sudden it comes flying in at you spitting lightning/flames and trying to cut you in two with it's claws or it's teeth then you could also have poison build up with it's attacks and every once and a while it would breath a large curse fog.

    I think something like the Predator would be really cool. Only conceptually I mean. Not an alien thing, but something that actively hunts you in a complex area that can blend really well with your surroundings. Imagine an area like the Dark Root forest, but there's a powerful being among the trees that can blend in and out that's trying to kill you. I think that'd be fun. It'd have to hunt you throughout the whole area though. As opposed to just one contained boss fight area.

    I like the OPs idea a lot too. It actually really sounds like something From would do too. Make you feel secure in a specific area for the majority of the game and then strike you with something powerful there when you're least expecting it

    Wow, thanks for the positive feedback guys!.

    There's actually a lot of great ideas in here! I'm particularly fond of the covenant idea by Azurecrow and the predator thing idea by Plastice, man that would be scary!. pitting you against a thing totally foreign to the souls' world would be a heart attack for me! also the abyss like boss sounds great for me although I already suffered a lot because of Manus.

    Maybe we need to send this thread to FROM! Might give them ideas for the next Souls game!

    An empty town. A sudden bell. A sudden scream. A sudden shadow. The End.

    You know would be a pretty scary fight. Aside from his blinding breath he has throwing knives and Chinese Black Magic. Imagine being blinded in a boss fight and then having to hear your character get stuck with throwing knives over and over again.

    A mosquito boss. With mosquitos spawning infinitely.

    Excellent ideas so far; mine?

    A boss fought in an abyss-like area (mostly empty and dark) that would only be visible for a split-second (possibly due to dark night+lightning). As for the boss' actual physical appearance...maybe Pinwheel+Nito...?

    a boss that renders you helpless to it's very being

    your only chance at survival is to run, but to continue to live you must confront

    one which will only appear to those truly alone

    the phantoms must stand back and watch from a distance...

    an abyss like forest, dark with nothing but trees, trees which only camouflage the terror that takes in one blow

    a silhouette of a pale faced... being... with long oily black strands that drag along the floor

    you feel there's something behind you, but are too afraid to turn the camera to attack

    petrified you feel the hair grasp onto you binding you within

    a cool chill creeps from the back of your spine as you feel a cold breath on your shoulder

    your screen turns to static several times, a morbid face revealed in a flash before your eyes

    THEN [insert name of favorite phantom here] RUSHES IN AND SLASHES AT THE HAIR SO YOU ALL CAN RUN TO SAFETY

    running as fast as you guys can, traversing the darkness to try and find a body

    a body of which you must destroy to sever the connection of her astral body from this world...

    with an item of which belonged to it long ago, a bloody knife

    Spoiler:
    with it, you can sever the connection, but the being of the abyss squirms quickly behind you...

    it closes the distance as fast as it can before you do the deed

    as you run the blade through the body, the being stops...

    a line of red coursing through where you cut the body

    tears of blood drip from it's eyes as it's hair begins to reduce to ash in the wind

    the setting begins to brighten, the dark comes to an end...

    BUT IN LAST EFFORTS TO STAY IN THIS REALM, THE SKY TURNS RED, AND THE BALD CHILD LIKE DEMON TRIES TO SLAY YOU

    with sword in hand you and your phantoms attack, the being now tangible

    in the end it falls, reducing to ash, carried away by the wind


    the rest is history
    without it, you are doomed as the being of the abyss squirms quickly behind you...

    hair covering the face in the midst of your face, it screams revealing the face you saw in the flash before

    your summoned phantoms frozen as the black hair burns you all into the black nothingness

    Great thread topic really creative

    My suggestion? A Boss that deals Ice damage, yes...ice damage.

    That would be really cool. Like you have to rely on flashes of light during spell castings or something. I think it'd have to take place before you gain the ability to create your own light, like the maggot or light spells.

    Wait I've got an idea. Okay she's a witch, but you have to be wearing this ring or you die instantly. Wait...nevermind..
