* ''The Ringed City's'' final boss, whom is the ''final boss'' of the ''trilogy'', has already been heralded as one of, if not the best bosses in the entire series, [[spoiler: Slave Knight Gael.]] First phase he uses his brutal swordsmanship skills, and inhuman speed, before being powered up by [[spoiler: '''The Dark Soul''' itself, becoming even faster, utilizing every weapon at his disposal, including a rapid fire crossbow, the Way of White Corona, and his fricken ''cape''. During the ''third'' phase, lightning bolts begins to pour around the arena, and he starts channeling ''Manus'' himself, and throws around crimson abyss projectiles.]] Described as an unholy fusion between Artorias and Manus, its safe to say FROM saved the best till last.

* The FinalBoss fight is probably the single best boss battle in the history of the series, for no other reason than the fact that [[spoiler:you are basically fighting ''yourself!'' More specifically, the Soul of Cinder combines the power of every Chosen Undead and nameless entity that ever Linked the Fire, and as such it has access to, in no particular order; a straight sword, a greatsword, a curved greatsword, a staff, sorceries, miracles, pyromancies, and the backflip-dodge of the Dark Wood Grain Ring.]] The only thing that makes this fight even better is when you hit Phase 2, [[spoiler:and you hear the three lonesome piano notes of Gwyn's theme as the Soul takes on the move set of the first Lord of Cinder himself. It feels both like a do-over of Gwyn's fight from ''VideoGame/DarkSoulsI'' and an enhancement; no cheesing out parry attempts here folks, you're gonna have to do this legit! Hope you know your way around the combat or brought a couple phantoms in to help you.]] Suffice to say that [=FROM=] pulled out all the stops in making the FinalBoss of the Souls series worth all the effort to get to it.

* No ''Dark Souls'' game would be complete without a proper dragon BonusBoss battle, and Darkeater Midir does not disappoint. Like Kalameet and Sinh before it, the thing is huge and incredibly fast, with enough punch to make you reconsider tanking. Its BreathWeapon, while infuriatingly powerful enough to oneshot players, is also a spectacle to behold, especially if it turns into a black beam of Abyss light that produces a wave of DelayedExplosion across the arena.

* [[OurGargoylesRock The Bell Gargoyles]]. After the trek through the Undead Burg has tempered you into expecting what ''Dark Souls'' has to offer, you find yourself in the Undead Parish, where the first of two Bells of Awakening await you. The final obstacle is a towering gargoyle swinging both its tail axe and its halberd to smash you into the roof you fight upon. And then, when you've whittled down its health to half, [[DualBoss another one joins the fray]], blasting fire at you as you now deal with two opponents. Bonus points for this being the first point you can summon Solaire in the game. This boss was so popular that it was brought back for ''VideoGame/DarkSouls2'' [[spoiler: and they brought their whole family this time!]]

* The Fire Demon encountered in the Catacombs of Carthus, while more like a miniboss, is still memorable for the fact that the player can actually ''[[EnemyMine cooperate]]'' with the friendly neighborhood [[DemBones skeletons]] to take him down - and even with the numbers on your side, the big guy can still put up a fight! It gets even better when you try dragging the nearby Mimic into the war, who will ruthlessly pound the demon into the dirt.

* Despite also being one of the most notorious cases of ThatOneBoss in the series (he's even representing the game in the pictures for the franchise's [[ThatOneBoss/DarkSouls That One Boss page]]), most still agree that the battle against Pontiff Sulyvahn is excellent despite its brutality. It's a fast-paced, exhilarating battle against an incredibly aggressive and nimble boss that will ''thoroughly'' test your dodge-roll timing, ability to quickly react to enemy tells and quickly punish openings. This, combined with his memorable design (basically the [[SinisterMinister Pope]] DualWielding {{BFS}}s), epic music, and [[TheChessmaster excellent]] [[TheCorrupter lore]], made [[EvilIsCool Sulyvahn]] [[EnsembleDarkhorse extremely popular]][[LoveToHate in the fandom.]]

* Farron's Undead Legion of the Abyss Watchers are concentrated {{Badass}} given form, both in the lore and in the fight against them. They're basically a legion of undead designated with guarding against the horrors of the Abyss, and when the time came for them to Link the Fire, they went down there [[BandOfBrothers together to burn as one]]. It also helps that [[spoiler:they are both a CallBack to and were ''founded'' by fan favorite character Artorias]], and it really shows in the fight against them; these bastards are [[LightningBruiser Lightning Bruisers]] to the core, able to cross yards of arena in the blink of an eye and incorporating a lot of scrambling movements and flips into their devestating move set. [[spoiler:It gets even better when you hit Phase 2 of the fight, as the combined power of all the fallen Watchers flows into their leader, activating his/her powers as a Lord of Cinder. You'll be in for the fight of your life as they practically [[FlashStep flash step]] around you and strikes with his/her flaming greatsword.]]

* The Ancient Dragon, who appears at the top of the Dragon Shrine as a NPC and actually gives you [[PlotCoupon an essential item to complete your quest]], if provoked turns into what is possibly the most brutal BonusBoss in Dark Souls 2, if not the whole series. Seeing this ''massive'' beast rise to crush you like the pitiful bug you are compared to it is sure make you wish you could pause the game to [[BringMyBrownPants get some clean underwear]]. This is accentuated by the sountrack, which just screams "[[ThisIsGonnaSuck you have indeed fucked up]]".
