Dark Souls' Bosses aren't your typical videogame boss fodder. They're usually devoid of obvious weak spots, attack relentlessly and will often require cunning, expert strategy and a lot of patience to defeat.

Bosses are the true test of the Dark Souls experience. Some are easier than others, but even the lowliest boss can be deadly.

You ready? Leap into one of the bosses below for more information on each.
