SoulsBorne Month: Top 20 Hardest Bosses – #18
Welcome back! Another day another pick for our Top twenty list!
***Level of difficulties we’ll see throughout this list:
Yellow-Orange = Bosses that are not necessarily hard on their own, but hard by either cheap tricks, gimmicks, or location.
Orange = Bosses that are tough on their own, but mainly tough due to a gimmick or trick. The difference here is that the boss may heavily rely on these attributes.
Red = Bosses that are hard to beat in either numbers or skill, truly tough bros.
Maroon = Bosses that are seemingly to near impossible, the god bosses of all bosses!
18. Blood Starved Beast (BloodBorne)
Attacks: Claw Swipe, Lunging Swipe, Lunging Grab, Rapid Slashes, Poison Explosion
Rewards: 6,600 Blood Echoes, Pthumeru Chalice
Rare Rewards: none.
Our Level: Orange
Description: If you were to progress down to the very bottom of the area known as Old Yharnam, you may stumble upon an old church. Within this old church lies quite the gruesome sight. A werewolf-like monstrosity with peeled skin from its back dangling on each side of its body and face, like crimson draped wings. This is the horrific creature known only as the Blood Starved Beast!
On the one hand, the Blood Starved Beast is similar to the other werewolf-like body type enemies in Bloodborne as it crawls on all fours and has quick striking blows with its claws and bites. On the other hand, it is very unpredictable at times. This enemy may even surprise and shock players who are not expecting any of its unique movesets. Very quick and agile, this beast already begins the fight formidably as the beast continuously lunges and slashes at his foe. By the time the beast reaches near half health it gains new abilities, it can now build up slow poison with each of its hits as well as a new array of moves including a dodge away after each attack. Near its end it will gain even more moves, become more aggressive, and begin seeping poison from its body!
This enemy is most notable for giving you the capability starting out your first chalice dungeon (or at the very least, is the first boss to defeat solely for the chalice item required specifically for that chalice dungeon location). The beast is also notable for being weak to Fire, but strong against Lightning and Arcane. But again as stated before, just because you know the easy route doesn’t mean executing that route will be easy. I find that strong and seasonal players still find themselves occasionally having quite the challenge with this guy for how agile and quick he is, which is quite interesting that the Blood Starved Beast is the one that seems to be pointed out with a few others among the large roster of fast enemies within the game. We are glad to have this beast freak of nature at number eighteen, this boss may be optional as a fight, but its a strong optional boss!
Check back for number seventeen of our list in a couple days!
