Bosses

From Dead Cells Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Bosses are a much stronger variant of enemies and serve as gates to the next set of biomes which are more difficult. They have high health and damage, and use a variety of attacks and combos. They are also partly resistant to status effects: for example, negative effects inflicted on them expire 20% faster than normal.

Rewards for beating a boss is gold, men, random items and on higher Boss Stem Cells scroll fragments. Beating a boss without getting hit rewards a random Legendary item.

There are currently thirteen bosses in the game: the base game has the Concierge, Conjunctivius, the Time Keeper and the Hand of the King.

The paid DLCs aka. the "Road to the Sea" trilogy add an alternate path through the game with its own set of bosses and final boss.

The paid DLC Return to CastlevaniaRtC adds three more bosses, Death, Dracula and alternate final boss Dracula - Final Form.

Through runes and Boss Stem Cells alternate paths to bosses can be travelled and thus the player does not have to fight the same set of bosses every run.

In Boss Rush mode, bosses can be fought back to back without travelling through biomes and fighting enemies. And for players who want even more of a challenge, alternate buffed versions of bosses can be fought as well.

In the Training Room bosses that the player has already encountered can be fought for practice without doing runs.
