Bosses in The Lords of the Fallen

At the end of your 30-hour playthrough, give or take, you’ll face the evil god Adyr, the Bereft Exile, in a final boss battle showdown. But before you get to Adyr, there’ll be plenty more bosses you’ll need to defeat first, some more powerful than others. Although you’ll find some bosses to take after concept art from Dark Souls and Soulslike games, The Lords of the Fallen manages to slot in a few that’ll blow your mind. 

We’ve compared all the bosses in The Lords of the Fallen based on appearance, difficulty, attack patterns, and more to bring you the best bosses in The Lords of the Fallen for your reading pleasure.

5. Judge Cleric, the Radiant Sentinel

Judge Cleric, the Radiant Sentinel Boss Fight (No Damage) [Lords of the Fallen]

Judge Cleric, radiantly sentinel in appearance, is quite a tough nut to crack. She dishes out showers of radiant arrows and angels that she can summon out of the blue. Dodging them is a headache and a delightful dance at the same time. Still, it’s inevitable to die a few times at the hands of the judge. Hopefully, you had the chance to plant a Vestige Seed just before the boss battle commences.

Furthermore, Judge Cleric doesn’t hesitate to charge at you with her spear headfirst. You’ll mainly have three consecutive combo attacks to deal with, the last one being a powerful slam down with her banner. But as long as you’re quick enough to dodge out of the way, you should have a slim chance to get in a few hits of your own.

The second phase of the boss battle is highly intense. She masters the slyest trick in the book to present such a divine visual spectacle, both in appearance and demeanor. You constantly get warped in her theatrics, which is a joy to watch. But once you defeat her, it’s extremely satisfying and deserving of a pat on the back. 

4. Pieta, She of Blessed Renewal

Pieta, She of Blessed Renewal Boss Fight (No Damage) [Lords of the Fallen]

Pieta, She of Blessed Renewal, looks graciously divine and angel-like as well. It’s perfect that she’s the first real boss you’ll face in The Lords of the Fallen after you ditch the training wheels, and she hardly disappoints. You’ll be tempted to come in, assuming she’ll be somewhat easier to take down. Until it quickly dawns on you that she just might be the most difficult boss you’ll have to face in your early game playthroughs.

Pieta first gives you room to get up to speed using her greatsword as her main weapon. Thereafter, in the second phase, Pieta unleashes her full might as the winged angel that can easily retreat to safety. Oh, it gets better. Once you’ve mastered the skill and courage to beat Pieta, she becomes an ally to summon in future battles freely, boss fights included. She won’t provide the full caliber of fearsomeness she unleashes on you, but she’ll retain her Holy Greatsword, which deals considerable damage output, too.

3. Congregator of Flesh

The Congregator of Flesh CHEESE (No Damage) Boss Fight [LORDS OF THE FALLEN]

With a name like Congregator of Flesh, it’s unsurprising that he makes it to the list of the best bosses in The Lords of the Fallen. Described as an unholy culmination of flesh and corpses, the Congregator of Flesh is hardly easy on the eyes. It's a gigantic creature that makes a squelching noise at every turn.

The boss deals poison damage while attempting to smack you with its giant arms. The poison is the worst because if it gets you, it’ll inflict damage over time. The giant arms, on the other hand, are quick to roll away from. Then comes the attack session, which can get bloody pretty fast, thanks to the sheer size of the grotesque being. 

Make sure to stock up on antidotes before forging ahead to face the Congregator of Flesh. Otherwise, you’ll want to learn the boss’s attack patterns to know the best time to strike or jump out of its way. In the second phase, the Congregator of Flesh moves a little bit faster. However, you’ll have learned the dance long enough to find your way through.

2. Tancred, Master of Castigations, and Reinhold, the Immured

Tancred, Master of Castigations Boss Fight (No Damage) [Lords of the Fallen]

Fighting against one boss can be manageable if you put in the work. But when they come as a pair, that’s when things become a little more tricky to figure out. The Tancred and Reinhold combo is the perfect challenge to learn multi-tasking. Additionally, each boss has a unique, contrasting attack pattern that pushes players to think outside the box.

Tancred, Master of Castigations, is your everyday knight, boasting a formidable wall of armor and health. Reinhold, the Immured, on the other hand, is a quadruple, foul monster that thrives on mobility and agility. Surprisingly, Tancred and Reinhold are brothers, joined at each other’s hips, thanks to a mysterious curse.

You’ll need to evade Tancred’s shield, which he uses to slam into the ground or bash you away. Then, from Tancred’s ashes rises Reinhold, determined to drain every ounce of endurance left of you. He fights in a beastly manner, optimizing violent maneuvers. However, so long as you stick to attacking Reinhold from the sides or back, you’ll be good to go.

1. The Lightreaper

How to Beat The Lightreaper in Lords of the Fallen

The boss battle against The Lightreaper is unique because it comes up during the tutorial phase while you still have your training wheels on. You don’t have to defeat him the first time. However, it’s still the perfect way to learn your play style in preparation for future boss battles. 

Additionally, The Lightreaper continues to stalk you through your journey and appears randomly to steal your Umbral lantern—hence the name. Simply dodge out of the Lightreaper’s dragon’s fire-breather. 

When the Lightreaper dismounts from the dragon, stay put at close range. He’ll be better trained at close-quarters combat, but he’ll also serve as the perfect stepping stone to mastering the art of the sword.
