1. Ornstein and Smough, from Dark Souls

The Souls series is notorious for its murderously formidable bosses, but none are as rage quit-inducing as Dark Souls’ Ornstein and Smough.

This battle pits two bosses against you: the limber Dragon Slayer Ornstein and the lumbering Executioner Smough. Serving as protectors to Gwynevere, Anor Londo’s Princess of Sunlight, these two have the secondary duty of making your life as miserable as they possibly can.

Ornstein is fast, able to dash across the screen, impale you with his spear, and zap you with lightning attacks. Smough is slow, but his immense girth makes him harder to dodge, and his massive hammer will grind you to dust. By themselves, they’re a challenge. Together? This dynamic duo will utterly pulverize you.

But after hours of screaming at the screen, you finally manage to slay one of them. Now that it’s one-on-one, that should make the whole thing easier right? Right?


The survivor absorbs his fallen partner’s power, transforming into a superpowered version of himself. Think Orstein, only bigger and stronger, or Smough, with the former’s speed and lightning attacks.

We’re not kidding: Ornstein and Smough will bring out the worst in you. For that reason, they’re #1 on our list of toughest video game villains.
