Though the difficulty of each boss in Demon’s Souls is largely dependent on your own character build, there is one boss that is a staunch challenge for anyone, regardless of their build – Old King Allant.

With his devastating magical attacks, hard-hitting melee attacks and sweeping AoE (Area of Effect) blasts, it’s somewhat fitting that the king of the realm himself, Old King Allant, is the hardest boss in Demon’s Souls.
