    Good list. I'm not far enough through 3 yet so can't comment on them all but I reckon the one that killed me the quickest was the Capra Demon in the first game. It was probably five or six attempts before I could even get a hit back.

    Well I've played the first one to death and absolutely love it. Haven't got round to the 2nd one yet because I just have a ridiculous amount of games that need playing. But Ornstein and enough were definitely my favourites from the first one.

    He's a dlc boss so if you did not buy the dlc then you did not fight manus or artorias

    No offense meant but an edit for the manus part: "...a certain feline companion..." The friend you bring in is most definitely a canine without saying too much. Anyway, really like the list. Loved each boss. As far as difficulty I thought Lud and Zallen from the DS2 dlcs killed me more than the fume knight. Even making it to them is insane so you almost always solo them.

    I loved the Moonlight butterfly, remember my first encounter with that guy, my undead was a melee fighter, didn't see the point in 'wasting' souls on arrows until then, it shaped every Dark Souls run I ever did from there on out, always carry a bow :P

    Great list.

    I'd go...

    1. Smough & Ornstein
    2. Gwyn
    3. Looking Glass Knight
    4. Sif
    5. Sir Alonne

    Good list though.

    I think Nameless King should be higher. He requires you to know his move set perfectly and know when and where to dodge. I agree with the rest, didn't play the DLC for 1 so I can't say about them.
