    Favorite: Orenstein & Smough. Hardest: O&S Solo (I don't have DLC, so i can't speak for those bosses.) Easiest: Iron Golem. Funnest: Quelagg.
    Coolest: Gargoyles.

    Favorite: Artorias. Always was interested from the lore.
    Easiest: Quelagg
    Coolest: Iron Golem. Something about it puts him there. I think it's the design and fight.
    Annoyance: 4kings
    Pathetic: Gwyndolin. Run Mage Run!
    Sadness: Sif. Why you demons!
    Hardest: Tie with Artorias and Gwyn. With Gwyn I was using my first on NG+3 before I knew you could parry him. 20+7 flask, all of my spells (I went warriors mage) gone and an hour of fighting and made it with 100 hp. With Artorias, a 55 dex whose strongest weapon was a chaos uhci barely cuts him. His resistance is quite strong.

    Hardest: Hmm I die the most to Gwyn and withing 10-15 seconds of walking into his kiln so he's pretty dam annoying. Manus also gave me trouble on NG+7.

    Favorite: Orstein and Smough are one of my favorite fights. The noise of Smough's hammer smashing down goes so well with the music and the pillars being shattered around you i awesome.

    Sadness: Pinwheel - no one likes pinwheel : ( we need to start a fundraiser to get Pinwheel better equipped. Maybe some armor or something, you know to give him at least another 30 seconds on the battlefield

    Easiest? Pinwheel.

    Hardest? I've heard it's Manus, but Artorias is currently owning me right now, so I can't get to Manus.

    Best Looking? Artorias

    Favorite? Ornstein, simply because he was the best before DLC and is still pretty awsome.

    Manus is more or less harder than Artorias, but it depends on how you look at it. Manus is more resiliant, more powerful, and his moves aren't really easily identified from close up, which is where you'll be fighting him unless you have 40 Crystal Souls Spears. In my opinion he's just a more aggressive version of Artorias, they're both fun.

    Easiest: Pinwheel and Nito
    Best looking: Artorias and Priscilla

    Favorite-Gwyndolin
    Funnest- Seath the Scaleless
    Hardest- Gwyn
    Easiest- Taurus Demon
    Best looking- Artorias

    Also Pinwheel is NOT easy. Look at PVP and you'll learn he has beaten you more than any boss beyond the grave.

    Who doesn't love getting ganked by three mask-wearing guys who teleport (aka lag) across the room? big grin

    Fortunately, Pinwheel also has about the same amount of HP as most PvP. He could have been a more difficult boss if they gave him more HP, forcing you to actually deal with his illusions.

    Favorite: Maybe the Gargoyles. The movement patterns seem like one of the more realistic and conceptually; from the intro, to the arena, to the lighting (huh? boss fight in bright outdoor happy lighting?) is pretty awesome. Even if they are just a reboot of Hall and Oates (Maneaters)

    Hardest: I think Ornstein and Smough kicked me around the most so probably them.

    Best Looking: Quelaag and no, not because of her upper half....well maybe partly because of that. I think there's a lot of symbolic value similar to Medusa with Quelaag. First off, the lava vomiting spider is just intense looking. The long flowing hair, the beautiful upper body. The contrast between the monster and the fragments of the woman is horrifying.

    Easiest: strictly as a boss I would have to do the popular thing and go with Pinwheel. I summoned Leeroy in NG+ with my main. I went in with a lemon buffed Great Scythe +15 and Leeroy backing me. I don't think he even got to spawn a replica. I haven't summoned Leeroy again because it felt like gang violence and not a battle. Honorable mentions go to the Moonlight Butterfly and the Iron Golem since a summon there means you can sit back and not fight.

    Easy mod = Gaping Dragon (the only boss I don't recall dying on)
    Annoying mod = Bed of Chaos (only because I can't seam to get the hang of doing it all in one shot)
    Coolest mod = O&S (They represented my bromance with the coop 1st playthrew with my friend)
    Throw the remote at the TV mod = Sanctuary Guardian (cutting is tail with my low level solo kind of took it's told on my nerve)
    Hardess = Kalameet in NG+[higher] (friend couldn't remember the playthrew he was on, but it took us a few night to kill him at sl120)

    You may wonder why Gwyndolin is funniest: on one of my runs, somebody put an OSS message "Be wary of great trap ahead."
