    You as a (mini)boss!

    Post by lalliman on Thu Jan 10, 2013 2:50 pm

    A variation on LunarFog's You as an NPC.

    If you were a boss or miniboss in Dark Souls, what would you be? Where would you be? What would you do? No need to be humanoid, be creative!

    I would be a miniboss called the demon ape! A human-sized monkey with a skull on his head (à la capra demon), who lives in a hidden spot in the darkroot garden. He'd vary between hopping through the trees while throwing dungpies at you, or coming down to the ground and attacking you with a chaos club.
    He wouldn't drop anything special, but would guard a chest with a couple of green blossoms, mosses and pine resins. Cuz ye know... he's a monkey.

    * For anyone who misunderstood my intent, you can be either a full or mini boss. Your pick! big grin

    i could be just Frampt, and get angry when you ally with Kaathe. You have to fight me in the LordVessels chamber.

    Attacks:
    -Warping arround the holes and trying to bite you
    -Eating you, like the gaping dragon and leaving you intoxicated
    -Ear smash (just simple strikes with the "ears")
    -And when im like only 1/5 life, when i eat you random pieces of your inventory just vanish.

    If I was a mini boss I would be a cursed knight if you give him 20 curse stones to break his curse he will aid you in fighting the boss in that area. But if you atk him and he will lose control and the curse will turn him into a black fog that will take the form of a wolf.
    Attacks
    1. Deadly breath: Spits fog that will build up curse metter
    2. Void: corrupts the ground hurting anyone thats in it, also builds curse
    3.Tears of the fallen: when the boss is 30% or below hes will get blue tearstone effect

    Miniboss eh? Probably no killer powers but I would likely be a knight (armor similar to Tarkus but white) hiding in the frozen painted world. I would carry a great scythe and rather than a shield I would have a reinforced left hand gauntlet. I would still only be able to block when one handing the weapon. Only one special attack: After a short charge time I would use my two handed scythe stance to create a blast of winter air. It would knock you down if unblocked or a small pushback if blocking. Getting hit more than once in the same fight would result in the player slowing down as their joints begin to ache from the cold.

    I'm one of the Blighttown fatties (only much bigger and slimier) and I have a series of belching gas attacks and other vile displays. I also have a grab attack that shoves the player into my mouth and after a gruesome few moments they eject from my other end minus a piece of equipment.

    Oh, and my name is Hungry Henry.

    Sorry bout the huge wall of text. wanted to make him awesome

    mine would be a knight-like character, wearing leather armor with metal plates sown on here and there, with a wolf shaped patch on the front of his armor, as well as 2 katanas, 1 regular sized the other short(about half the katana's size).

    he would guard characters like quelaags sister, or priscilla(you've all heard this by now). neutral until angered. he would stand near them, close enough to stop your attack, should it happen. when you do attack, he would use an emit force type spell, but much larger, to carry you into a more open area(you don't get hurt. he'd run over, and start attacking(the path to the one you attacked would be blocked during this). he'd use various tactics, from quick draws to dual wield attacks. at about 75% health he'd say "you're good! lets see how long you'll last!" and gain an increase in speed and power(not much, but noticeable). at 50% he'll say "i've underestimated you! lets see how you like this!" and starts parrying, like oscar, but with no riposte(wouldn't wanna be too OP) and at 25% he'd say "I WON'T LOSE!" and gain a variation of emit force called "emit will". this would shoot his Willpower forward like emit force but with some damage, and can be rapid shot twice or three times in a row, if he misses(he'd cast it about every 20 seconds from the last one fired)dealing about 75 damage, as well as another slight speed increase. when he dies, he'd say, "I guess i couldn't protect them...." and you'd gain his gear, including the weapons, and the "emit will"(acts like emit force but with damage, no rapid fire) miracle. he'd be more like an NPC invader type of thing(but actually in-game, without the invading). if you talk to him, he can be summoned for some bosses. like nito, or seath, maybe 4kings, or even gaping. attacking any of his "charges"(for lack of a better word) not only makes him hostile, but also makes you lose the ability to summon him.

    name would simply be "The Knight"(talking to him prompts him to give you this title as his name). assuming you don't attack him, he may even give hints to various lore bits(probably surrounding the ones he protects, but only hints, not the whole picture) and may even sell you items(nothing big, maybe some grass or a cracked orb or something). miniboss and helpful friend all in one!

    *edit* forgot to tell ya what he'd say if he won! "Do not attack those whom i protect, but if you want to fight me again, come back when you are stronger!"

    I'd be a two-part miniboss.

    Location would be in the area you fight Kalameet after killing him. Go with the calamity ring on and you can activate a special foglike thing, like in darkroot basin, and it takes you to a time even further back.

    My character would be protecting a young Kalameet. When the player approaches, my character signals Kalameet to fly away, then my character runs towards the player, sword held in both hands.

    His attacks would be sort of Artorias-ish. Fast paced, heavy hitters but with a small change. They also do black flame damage, as in have the same properties as Dark Flame. Reach the 75% mark and he starts using his flame wave attack, where he will throw from 2 to 7 waves of flames, kind of like Flase King Allant. Also, his range would be insane with black flames, like sir Allant's. Hit 25% and another cutscene plays, where my character jumps, then runs towards the cliff and dives. A very bright flash of light and up comes a dragon similar to kalameet. however, a bit smaller and MUCH faster. He wouldn't have a tail, seeing as his tail is the weapon he uses in human form. His attacks are like kalameet but more fierce and a lot more long range fire attacks. the calamity grab would be replaced by the calamity ray, a laser resembling devil jin's.

    Upon beating my character, you'd get his soul, which would either give 40k souls or his greatsword, the Ashen Flame Greatsword. It would be an upgradeable dragon greatsword with a weight of 20 units. The base attack would be 300 with a max of 490. the normal R2 would be a slash upwards that sends a fast wave of flames towards the opponent. The 2handed R2 would be a fast 5 slash combo that at close speed takes off quite a bit of damage, and at long range it sends wave after wave of flames. normal r2 takes off 20 durability, 2handed 40. Also, when you are below 25%, if you land a parry, the animation changes to stab and then from the back, a massive blast of red light appears. If it's a killing blow, it launches the enemy but gives the illusion of death, the drops being autoacquired.

    ^ Damn that's awesome xD
    That's more like a whole boss than a miniboss.

    I would be a humanoid Spellsword using Soul Spears and Lightning Spears and what not as melee weapons, spamming OP magic and miracles, and moving around as fast as if not faster than Gwyn and Ornstein do.

    Oh and as for Vow of Silence, Magic Barrier, and Great Magic Barrier...
    Well, I will then pull proceed to pull out my BFS.

    Boring, right?

    Once, I was looking at him, and I realized something. Those "ears" aren't ears. It's a mustache, but made of flesh and not hair.

    Sorry bout the huge wall of text. wanted to make him awesome

    mine would be a knight-like character, wearing leather armor with metal plates sown on here and there, with a wolf shaped patch on the front of his armor, as well as 2 katanas, 1 regular sized the other short(about half the katana's size, a type known as a "kodachi" usually used for both defense and offense,due to their light weight).

    he would guard characters like quelaags sister, or priscilla(you've all heard this by now). neutral until angered. he would stand near them, close enough to stop your attack, should it happen. when you do attack he would block the attack(the one attacked would take no damage, no matter what happens, until he is dead) and then use an emit force type spell, but much larger, to carry you into a more open area(you don't get hurt). he'd run over and start attacking(the area would be enclosed during this, like a regular boss). he'd use various tactics, from quick draws to dual wield attacks, as well as a special "double rush" where he does a quick dash attack, then another one back to his original position, as well as strafing at high speeds(not rolling, strafing). at about 75% health he'd say "you're good! lets see how long you'll last!" and gain an increase in speed and power( no animation, you'll just see an aura appear). at 50% he'll say "i've underestimated you! lets see how you like this!" and starts parrying, less than crestfallen warrior but with no riposte, instead opting to jump back and do a rush with both weapons, with a shockwave that ripples around him, damaging anything in range that he missed(doesn't hit in front of him). avoidable and blockable(if barely). attempting to parry him at this point will cause him to have a chance to pivot and attack you instead of getting riposte'd. At 25% he'd say "I WON'T LOSE!", and a force variant will happen knocking you into the far wall(it hits the whole room, no damage, just a hold) and gain a variation of emit force called "emit will". this would shoot his Willpower forward like emit force but with some damage, and can be rapid shot twice or three times in a row dealing about 200 damage each, though it would have a cooldown between bursts, as well as another increase to his speed. during the force variant, think artorias' power up, but unstoppable. when he dies, a cutscene commences where he stands there, breathing ragged and covered in wounds, using the last of his willpower to stay upright, as he says "I guess i couldn't protect them...." and then drops his weapons and falls over. you'd gain his gear, including the weapons, and the "emit will"(acts like emit force but with damage, no rapid fire) miracle. on winning though, he will say "Do not attack those whom i protect, but if you want to fight me again, come back when you are stronger!". you may choose whether to fight him again or not, as he will not attack you until you do something to anger him. so long as you don't attack him or one of his "charges" again, he won't attack again. pretty much an optional boss.

    His name would simply be "The Knight"(talking to him prompts him to give you this title as his name). assuming you don't attack him, he may even give hints to various lore bits(probably surrounding the ones he protects, but only hints, not the whole picture) and may even sell you items(nothing big, maybe some grass or a cracked orb or something). boss and helpful friend all in one!


    there we go. the boss version of what i posted earlier. i held back a bit on it earlier because i thought he had to be a miniboss XD

    I would be dressed in a white cloak trimed in blue. I would also use something like the Silver Knight Sword and have a staff on my back. I would appear weak at first. I would move slowly, deal little damage, and take a lot of damage. When my health is completed I would die.

    BAZINGA! I suddenly rise and regain my health. My clothes changes to black trimed in red. I whip out my staff in my left hand and say, "Did you think you could kill me? Ha ha ha..." Now I move faster and can dodge. I deal a lot of damage with my sword and staff. I am able to cast fire and lightning attacks. I also take less damage from attacks. If you die, then I will be in my second form when you re-enter my arena.

    When I die a second time I stay dead. You also get my sword and staff, but the staff is a useless blunt weapon. lol!

    I would be a 14-foot humanoid clad in banded steel, with a steel mask covering my face. I would have no shield, and moderate health, but my defense would be unmatched in the game. For a weapon, I would use a ball-and-chain.

    That's right. A motherf*cking ball-and-chain. A big 3-foot in diameter hunk of cold steel attached to a long, sturdy chain. I specialize in broad sweeping attacks and a long ball throw, before reeling the ball back in. I would also pick the ball up and smack you with it if you got too close.

    There is a way to break the chain, allowing you to recieve the ball-and-chain as a weapon. it would be a strength weapon, of course, but with a minimum of 48 strength and 18 dexterity to use.

    I would guard a secret fire-keeper soul hidden in a secret room accessed through the golem garden in Duke's Archives. This fire-keeper soul would boost your estus to +10.

    dude, +8 would be OP enough, plus 10 would make humanity damn near useless
