7 Unwinnable Boss Fights You Can Beat If You're Good Enough

If a game really wants to put you in your place, the easiest way is to drop you into a boss fight, usually early in the game, that is unwinnable. This reminds you that you, the player, are a worthless scrub who will have to go on a hero's journey before you can defeat the big baddie.
Except sometimes those bosses aren't quite impossible to beat - whether that's through cunning, skill or just sheer bloody mindedness. These seven bosses might seem like they're just a delivery vector for a humiliating story cutscene, but you can actually defeat them.

  • If they would have meant the demon in dark souls to be unwinnable, they would not have put an item for him to drop only if you defeat him the first time you fight him. So you can't call him unwinnable because they meant it to be winnable because of the reward.

  • You scrubs chose dark souls instead of demon’s souls . What a shame .... saw the tittle and thought demon souls was a no brainer . Alas, it seems a lot of people are unaware of the best souls game(fight me on this) While writing this I saw you made honorable mention to it, but not good enough. Dark souls fight you can run, demon souls fight you live or you die, much more compelling. Cheers thanks for reading

  • You can defeat Dark Cecil in FF2/4 if you keep pressing your attacks. I did this the first time I played the game because I didn't know I wasn't supposed to fight him. :P (Doesn't actually change the outcome; you still get to keep Paladin Cecil.)

  • In Witcher 3 you can kinda kill that strong ghost by lighthouse at Skellige before that guy lights it up. I also not recommend it, because if you drop him to like 1/12 of his health then he will be invincible and you'll have to load the game because you're supposed to kill him when he's vulnerable to attacks. But that's just fun fact, i did it with my 99 lvl ng+ save with op skillset, mutation and grandmaster feline armor with Aerondight so that quest was like 40 or 30 lvls below (i'm taking a guess) me so yeah...

  • The fact that asylum demon was on this list is incredibly stupid. Especially considering when they said how to beat it they were doing 20% of its health per throw. Not to mention kill the asylum demon with broken straight sword is fairly easy. It just takes awhile

  • I will never understand people who intentionally try and kill Cauthrien to skip the Captured quest in DAO. Why do you want to skip the possibility to see Zevran and Oghren attempt to pass as a travelling circus duo, or Morrigan pretend to be a chantry sister with Leliana? It's such a dumb, fun quest.

  • When I first bought Dark Souls, it had been hyped as this game that was so hard it's practically impossible. I made a level 1 pyromancer, no armor, nothing but a broken sword hilt, and absolute baseline stats, walked into the asylum demon, and thought "Damn, they weren't kidding." So I spent like an entire day but finally killed it with nothing but raw determination, a bit of luck, and a lot of spite. No other boss fight the series had to offer quite measured up to it.
