An Elden Ring mod is pitting one of the game’s most infamous bosses, Malenia, Blade of Miquella, against every other major boss in the game.
YouTube user Garden of Eyes – who also modded legendary summon Let Me Solo Her into Elden Ring and gave Bloodborne a first person mode – uploaded a video of Malenia taking on 25 other bosses.
The fights can be watched as if from one of Elden Ring’s suspicious colosseums through a spectator camera, with Malenia starting with Grafted Scion before later fighting everyone from Radahn to Godrick.

The video is also a great insight into the difference in strength between bosses that seemed impossible early on in Elden Ring and end-game fights like Malenia’s.
She cuts down the Tree Sentinel in just a few swipes, for example, and the poor tutorial boss, Solider of Godrick, is one-hit killed.
We won’t spoil too much about which bosses get Malenia to her second stage and which, if any, manage to defeat her, but the 41 minute video certainly offers plenty of Elden Ring action to take in.
Malenia quickly gained infamy following Elden Ring’s release as one of the toughest bosses in the game, not helped by developer FromSoftware patching out a popular way to defeat her and a crazy glitch making her ridiculously overpowered.
Someone who defeated her throughout, however, was Let Me Solo Her, who would appear in people’s games to take down Malenia single-handedly, and has now done so more 1,000 times.
Elden Ring has proved somewhat of a cultural phenomenon since it was release in February, with players finding a ton of different ways to interact with the game.
Elden Ring has also been beaten in under seven minutes by a speedrunner, completed without taking or dealing damage, and fans are also modding every other entertainment franchise imaginable into the game.
In our 10/10 review, IGN said: “Elden Ring is a massive iteration on what FromSoftware began with the Souls series, bringing its relentlessly challenging combat to an incredible open world that gives us the freedom to choose our own path.”
