except the dream

bosses

that have real-world counterparts but still the warrior dreams a nightmare King grim because cohesive logic is overrated all footage except flume arm has taken from my first playthrough the game and a fair amount or even first attempt had to start a new playthrough because I lost the episode that bastard was in but regardless were finally here and here we go number one Zoet the mighty it counts that's how you know a boss is the

easiest

one you have to justify its classification he's the boss of being at the mercy of every critter in hallo nest if anything zode the mighty is a joke encounter at the end of a Coliseum battle that was included seemingly to fill us all with overwhelming maniacal joy giving this pretentious old exactly what it deserves number two grooves mother sure you all make jokes about grooves mother how she's easy and a waste of time and a minor obstacle but did any of you ever stop to think that maybe you're actually beating the out of a pregnant woman because you literally are although it can't be healthy for the fetuses to be smashed up and down the floor and roof like that I mean if she's trying to terminate the pregnancy there are better ways to go about it it's probably a little late given that her water broke as she lay dying in her offspring burst forth ready to embrace this new thing called life...

right up until you slaughter them all in front of each other that is this is a horrific tragedy and you deserve maximum punishment get some of those Sparky butterfly swarms and turn that dirt meth bench into an electric chair number three MooMoo can charge that up for you I don't know how a jellyfish has armor that only pill bugs with dad bods can penetrate but here we are you must rely on your friendly neighborhood bug man too far too infrequently pierce through the thick gelatinous nests of uma so you can hit on three is times and then jump around avoiding electric peril until the next opportunity it never gets more complicated than that this guy should help me win all my fights of course we don't to end up like cloth hashtag our IP number for war your dream maar mu this fight is like hitting a ping pong ball with a string attached to the paddle you can mostly just stand in one place and just bat Mar move back over and over again like a domestically abused yo-yo until he finally collapses from the bruising he's basically a homing missile that bounces off walls and that can occasionally create ricochet circumstances but as long as your timing as solid he don't pose much of a threat in any range upgrade terms you have would help even more number 5 nos nos is the Ludwig of jumping onto the ceiling and dropping down on your ass with a full force of his horse bug body the benefit of this fight over that one is here you have two corners to hide in and watch them...

scuttle above your head like an idiot giving you free hits maneuvering between the left and right corners is the best way to avoid damage just don't ever be on the same bottom level as them so we can't trample you to death number 6

hollow

Knight

the titular boss of the game is actually real easy at first you're like ooh he got combos but then you can just dance on his head like Lord Farquaad and shrek fairy tale freak down which was a fighting game for gameboy color where Pinocchio used his arms to shoot laser tumbleweeds in Shrek farted people to death anyway

hollow

knight

is easy because he spends a lot of the fight killing himself for you I mean that takes cutting to a whole new level right there plus you just keep slashing at him it's like a joint effort where you're both on the same team until he starts cascading orange snot blood all over the place and now your foes once again luckily top three bug wife--who Hornet is on hand to autoerotic asphyxiated long enough feed a dream nail and end the fight number 7 false

Knight

the false

Knight

is a big fat fatty whose weight is his downfall get it cuz he falls down eventually genius at first it takes some time to learn his jump patterns and with no - ability at dodging is a little harder but you can hit the debris he makes crumble from the ceiling atom for damage even though do that in this video at all you don't gain spirit from hitting him until you knock it's false helmet off and start using too...

much teeth on its head until they can't take it anymore I'm CIPS himself back up soon I'll have his a4 downfall and then you can just go to town on them till he explodes number 8 Hornet 1 the first time you fight Hornet is one of my favorite fights because it's relaxing but stimulating it requires just enough effort to not fall asleep but not so much that you have to adjust your position in your chair at all it's a fine balance to strike she'll jump around and charge at you but you can always see your moves coming except when she does that lingering will chain whip thing that makes me want to go final form on her ass I'm already launching fire Agha we're halfway there like most

bosses

enough hits will stutter and give you time to heal or you can just keep up the pressure and skip your healing window even when you need it so you can feel like an unrelenting badass number 9 broken vessel the broken vessel is broken in that it doesn't really know how to be a hard boss - attacks are Telegraph jumping is mostly pointless the only real threat is when he starts a solo mosh pit in the center of the room and begins Chuck and his parasitic brain juice everywhere it can be tough to avoid but if you're lucky you can sneak some heal time in there eventually you'll start spawning these orange flavored booze to float after you but they go down in one hit and provide free spirit broken vessel is weird but frail so I didn't have much of a...
problem number 10 trader Lord another fight where you get help from a wonderful AI companion only this one has a more tragic ending now throughout this footage you were gonna see me get hit borderline non-stop because I didn't know the patterns yet but looking at it now I'm like I can very easily tell how to theoretically dodge all this the trader Lord doesn't give you time to heal basically at all so if you keep trying to rush off to do it you're just gonna get followed and heal cancelled over and over again despite this it means he's fairly easy to tank and you have quick slash by now probably so this is a fight where you could completely flounder the whole time and still come away with it because cloth pulls a last ditch of death's door lamb on that dudes head it goes out a hero number eleven crystal Guardian is the first boss that killed me because I had two health and no spirit and I'm like ooh a bench can this fat ass get off police so I can take my much-needed respite but he did not appreciate the insulting what kind of berserk and ended me and I was mad about it but then I came back refreshed and knocked him around crystal Guardian has a few laser attacks that are easy to dodge once you internalize that you should probably be dodging them he's not even good because his yodeling doesn't even stop you in your tracks like it does with other

bosses

so you can just hit him volleys Mountain caroling and make him shut the hell up I know...
there's a second version of his boss because I killed it but I'd combed my whole playthrough for that fight and could not find it so either it was all a bad dream or I've been transported to a universe where the second crystal Guardian encounter doesn't exist regardless when he loses the element of surprise crystal guardian ain't no dying number twelve fluke mom took me five hours in a second playthrough to get here because I'm diligent a fee you're welcome fluke mom's difficulty is directly related to how strong your nail is I have one nail upgrade and fragile strength equipped here so the flying bugs go down in one hit which vastly simplifies things the holes they come through briefly leak pus to show you what's about to go down so you can time your hits to attack both them and the boss at the same time and if you've got the thorn charm that makes it even easier I think what trips people up when it comes to

bosses

like this is the notion that if you get hit once you got to go immediately heal and top yourself back off but when you roughly know how a boss goes you can weigh your HP against theirs and make judgment calls like I don't ever even need to heal that damage because he'll be dead by the time I'm in any danger also steady body against any airborne boss is a must so you don't get knocked back across the room every time you hit something I think it's the most underrated charm in the game it's one notch and...
it never not helps number 13 mantis Lords I think this boss is perfection my favorite fight probably because when you get on a roll and in the zone you feel like an actual once you stop focusing on healing and instead just on dodging attacks you'll play a hundred times better first it's you versus one mantis Lord and you're like oh damn we goin toe-to-toe but once you knock him out they send the other two after you would once and you're like can I even handle this but it turns out you can't because you are bug Jesus they alternate their attacks and your job is to punish each miss with a single tap of your nail until they bow to you out of respect and then you can go through mantas village without attacking anyone because they just bow at you and you better not kill them anyway if you even can because then you're a douche you don't commit genocide on a tribe that is just recognizers strength you douche number 14 warrior dream Ghorab the second

easiest

of the warrior dreams Gorp simply shoots eight-way heavenly nails at you from different locations and as you go along he'll shoot slightly more eight-way heavenly nails at you from different locations staying under him as

easiest

for dodge purposes and other than that there is absolutely nothing to talk about here number 15 a warrior dream elder who the third

easiest

of the warrior dreams elder who puts the hammer down all over the battlefield and well-timed dashes are the key to not getting...
gabbled to death imagine a judge from a crime show being like order order for five straight minutes and that's basically what this is he takes way too long to die if you ask me but that's just old people in general isn't it number 16 warrior dreams arrow the fourth

easiest

of the warrior dreams arrow beats out the rest that have come before because his male action can be difficult to dodge if you don't stay directly underneath them and he flies around like Superman on cocaine so that could be tough without quick focus or something once you start to ramp it up the attack frequency you won't really have time to heal so dodge commitment is helpful rather than getting yourself even more hurt but like most warrior dreams it's still just about wandering around swatting at the same fly over and over until it's finally squashed number 17 soul master so sometimes holla nigh keeps the achievement thing in the corner for eons and while I do like to be told how honorable I am it's kind of a bother isn't it anyway so master's cloak is about two sizes too small Annie's flash and everyone we need to put a stop to it he's a big fan of desolately diving all over the place but his soul balls will seek you out too my favourite attack is when he just jogs towards you all out of breath he has all these magic attacks but eventually he's so frustrated he's just like and come here eventually you destroy him but it's a false flag he blasts...
you through the ground and you must continue the encounter instead of what I do in the video when he's shooting so balls at you you should just run up and take the piss out of him and he'll die for real pretty quick number 18 dumb defender this fights why I'm so honorable because I stood my ground and gave a fair fight despite the disgusting circumstances the dumb defender is anything but a shitty boss his jovial attitude makes you feel bad about slicing his grey pubes off as gross as everything else is you should jump over him when he starts diving up and down towards you and don't be afraid to get up in his face when he starts throwing as long as you mildly back up during the actual throwing or you'll get clipped by the hitbox truly one with poop dumb defender bounces around with his favorite thing and you can juggle him to stop him from landing on you all in all it's fun and nasty rolled into one kind of like anal number 19 the collector I do like this fight you should have enough strength to one-shot any enemy he spawns otherwise he'll probably be a bad time but the collectors short hops around the stage making it easy to get solitaire hits in knowing where he'll land and it's easy to tell when it's jump will end in a swipe even though I don't dodge that even once here I think I have great hindsight when it comes to tactics and boss rankings like just because you don't necessarily see it doesn't mean I don't get it...
you dig the field gets pretty cluttered if you let it so like don't number 20 brooding Moloch I don't know what community consensus is on any of these

bosses

but I've never been one to give a so brooding Moloch is here brooding Moloch is queer get used to it it covers all its bases it's consistently shooting out its mouth making it hard to time jumping over it and you can't camp next to him cuz he goes slash at you watching the footage I'm saying that you should wait until he long is that big blast before you jump over him because he pauses for a second but obviously I didn't do that and instead chose to allow myself to be trapped like a bug rat and get rained on regardless I still struggle so what a OVAs brat number twenty-one Hornet two Hornets faster this time around and all it takes is a change in tempo to completely throw off your rhythm now she has counters and she sets traps up in the middle of the fight like the balls it takes to do that imagine putting a bear trap down in front of a bear and just being like you're gonna walk into this it's only a matter of time so you got to knock that stuff away it's still fun like the first fight but now you're gonna make me try I'm not on board with that number 22 watch her

Knight

I'll be honest I went in here with a tank mindset after the first time I died - this boss because I was like there's a ton of them they all roll super fast and combo me I wonder if I can make a...
setup where I can just sit there and kill them without hardly moving and outlast them and luckily there was I had fragile strength quick slash defenders crest for build up ticks even though smell like isn't usually on my to-do list and maybe starboard shell for more invincibility and as you can see I just stand there and beat the hell out of them in the context of the playthrough I was like can I experiment with charms for a second and because I felt the need to do so I positioned them as difficult in the list cuz if they were playthings they'd be lower and I wouldn't have had to watch her

Knight

is my least favorite boss I think even the name is a lie like it's plural bro ad dad ass number 23 god tamer this is my first attempt and I was so jacked up from finally getting to the end of the last Colosseum I was like there's no way in hell I'm losing this first of all let me sing steady bodies praises once again because look at that I am bullying him make way I'm rolling out my own red carpet and you were not invited once the tamer is dispatched in brutal fashion you're left with the God which is just a big bug that rolls around so I don't know what kind of date he powers he's hidin but he ain't showing him however it's still annoying to fight because right after he lands one of his roles he starts to move it on you if you're trying to hit him like you'll be hit more by this dude's Idol movement than any attack he does...
just be a cowardly and double jump around avoiding him when you need to and you can pull it out after it's a god to a non-believer number 24 radiance at least radiance looks like a god it took me a few attempts to not think this guy was impossible but once you get a grip on things it's really not that bad if you need healing I recommend shape of hoon and sprint masters so you can dart around his vertical attacks with the greatest of ease even though you look like a idiot in the process quick slash is a must for its second phase find the platform directly under him go absolute bonkers on his radiant chin and that phase will be over in 45 seconds then all you have to do is climb the stairway to heaven and bitch-slap them with your black ass tentacles and you've won the game number 25 war your dream galleon too much stuff that's the core of my problem here he's spinning his scythe everywhere and it bounces around following you then throughout he's like yo would you enjoy two more smaller sights bouncing around as well giving you zero opening to heal while I hide an unreachable place is a lot of the time no I do not enjoy that particularly please rescind it from consideration oh well too bad it's already happening hashtag peace I had to have Baldr shell just to avoid otherwise an unavoidable damage number26 troopmaster grim what a fun boss right really though it's a spectacle well done to the devs for this I go back and forth on whether the...
nightmare version of this fight is harder or easier because his tendril spikes are replaced with a flame eruption that leaves them open longer although in this version you can use the spikes time to heal true master Grimm is fast agile has short openings and is real fun to learn it's all overwhelming at first but what a triumph as your education grows and you figure out how to dodge stuff the tensest moment is when he turns his cloak into a thorn a fat ballgown and shoots fireballs everywhere I love jumping around those trial-and-error all the way here number 27 nightmare King Grimm the second

hardest

boss nightmare King Grimm basically forces you to relearn the fight you just got done with it tweaks the moves you've grown accustomed to dodging so that your preferred methods no longer work but the disadvantage as mentioned before is that his flame pillars leave them vulnerable much longer and that's where damage you can see I go for the max health strap because I never saw myself being able to heal at any point get ready to abused the hell out of shadow - to dodge literally everything and his ball gown fire balls are even more cleared and even more tense it's so fun number 28 Grey Prince's ode you I should have left you to die in the jowls of that first big insect anything if I saved you then I should have left you to die in that cocoon in deepness and even if I saved you then I should have finished the job in the Coliseum and murdered your bitch-ass grey...
Prince's oat is the dream of some weird lunatic fangirl bug who believes all his posturing and views him as this big strong man never should have rescued her from fungal wastes either never has a boss pissed me off this much because it's such a blatant insult to make the player struggle against a powered up version of a joke boss this fight offends me zoda's bookending this boss reckon he does not deserve the attention because he's not even like stylish or cool he's just a buff version of the same incompetent prick you run into the whole game he just slams the ground all day and makes tidal waves so ridiculously high they flood all of Japan then he runs around flailing his sword like it's gonna jump out of his hand and he actually hits me with that most of the time then watching him trip after it and fall flat on his face which also sends a shockwave that could hit me it's degrading grape rinses out sucks at fights and he's still killing me I don't know how you don't crease your goddamn teeth after that I hate him with everything I have and it slams sometimes just seems straight-up unavoidable to me like he reacts to my air - and moves to where I'm going and then goes before I can get out of the way again I land but the shockwave is too high for me to jump over immediately and oops me also he's disgusting he spits out many bug versions of himself like zoats spiders and flies I mean it you are you incubating that inside of you do...
they just live in your gullet and skitter around in there waiting to be set free you absolute abomination Jesus Christ this boss so hard so hard gray print zone is the

hardest
