Elden Ring is a game that brims with a plethora of menacing bosses seeking nothing but the Tarnished’s blood. They lurk in the darkest corners of the Lands Between and put on such an arduous fight where winning requires putting nose to the grindstone.
Despite the difficulty that bosses in Elden Ring pose, over 12 million players find themselves diving into the game’s souls world to seek glory.
While we do not know how many of these enthusiasts faced every notorious foe of the Lands Between, those who did encounter each of them them have been debating who’s the strongest of them all.
According to a poll by Aiswyda on ResetEra, Malenia is the toughest boss in Elden Ring, as out of the 1,273 casted votes so far, a mammoth 977 have been for Malenia.
This means that nearly 76 percent of the Elden Ring fandom thinks that Malenia is the enemy you don’t want to be on the wrong side of.
The second position in the poll was grabbed by the Elden Beast, who received just 145 votes as of now, and at third stood Radahn with 40 votes so far. Perhaps this poll has been a bit unfair to Radahn, as before getting nerfed, he was a contender for the top position.
Those who have fought him in his original state are aware of how destructive the infamous boss can be. It looks like most gamers are lucky to have clashed against him when an update that weakened him was applied.
Now coming back to Malenia, if you are an enthusiast who doesn’t find this formidable foe to be all that and believe the battle against her is overrated, then there’s a mod just for you.
Through the Elden Ring Item and Enemy Randomizer mod, you can turn every living enemy, monster, and wild animal in the game into Malenia. It’ll give you an ego check so massive that maybe you’ll bow down to her.
