One Elden Ring player makes an impressive video showing their 225 deaths at the hand of Malenia, Blade of Miquella, arguably the game’s toughest boss.
One Elden Ring player finally beats Malenia on the 226th attempt and records their 225 deaths. Elden Ring has many tough bosses, but no one comes close to Malenia, Blade of Miquella. She has a unique moveset with highly powerful close range and AoE attacks that can one-shot even high-level players. Malenia’s biggest strength in Elden Ring is her ability to regain health whenever she lands a successful hit.
Malenia’s health regaining capabilities and devastating moveset make her one of the most brutal bosses in Elden Ring. That is why most players die hundreds of times at the hands of the intimidating Elden Ring boss, only to unleash Malenia, Goddess of Rot, after beating her first phase. In her second phase, she becomes even more deadly and deals Scarlet Rot damage. Now, an Elden Ring fan has captured their fights with Malenia in an entertaining video on Reddit.
Reddit user EntryAxe uploaded a video showing their encounters with Malenia, Blade of Miquella. The video begins with the user entering Malenia’s chamber for the first time, with intense classical music playing in the background. Within a few seconds only, the user experiences their first death at Malenia’s hands after a couple of deadly blows. A death count appears in the top right corner of the screen, indicating one death. Things quickly escalate as the following sections of the clip show the exact moments where EntryAxe died during the Elden Ring boss fight. Meanwhile, the death count continues and rapidly multiplies, going over 100 in a minute.
In most cases, the user dies as soon as Malenia performs her famous Waterfowl Dance attack. Malenia jumps high in the air and unleashes a deadly slashing combo that deals thousands of damage per second. The player didn’t even manage to unlock the second phase of Malenia’s fight until their 210th attempt. Still, Malenia killed the user 15 more times before finally dying on EntryAxe’s 226th attempt. Elden Ring fans applauded the original poster for their video editing skills, while some showed sympathy for dying more than 200 times at Malenia’s hands.
Malenia is one of the few bosses with a rich backstory and plays a crucial role in the game’s lore. Malenia is Miquella’s twin and the daughter of Queen Marika and her second husband, Elden Ring’s Radagon of The Golden Order. She is mainly known for the legendary battle with Starscourge Radahn during the war of the Shattering. Players can access the Malenia boss fight in the Elphael, Brace of the Haligtree region in Elden Ring.
