Hilarious Elden Ring Clip Shows Scarab Killing Player During Boss Fight

Elden Ring does its best to reuse assets, as bosses who appear multiple times in the Lands Between often still feel unique with each encounter. For example, Elden Ring players will battle many enemies such as Black Blade Kindred throughout their adventure, with the one featured in a clip by Reddit user AEMarling being widely regarded as the toughest – making their deaths all the more tragic.

While they may not be as formidable as Maliketh, the Black Blade, creatures like the one in the Redditor’s clip can be a real challenge to take out. Their attacks are varied and difficult to dodge, with the bosses often changing their attack style during combat to keep players on their toes. The Black Blade Kindred also has a huge health bar, something that often results in players running out of Estus Flasks before the fight comes to an end. This is exactly what happened to AEMarling.

With the Black Blade Kindred still having a fair amount of health left and the Redditor having only a tiny bit of HP left, the chances of success seemed slim. Luckily for the Reddit user, they had a good memory and solid situational awareness, remembering that there were some Cerulean Scarabs near the boss arena. In a last ditch effort to stay alive, the Redditor jumped on Torrent and drove to the Scarabs.

However, the Redditor suffered an unfortunate series of bad luck, as this seemingly smart decision turned out to be their downfall. While he’s still on top of Torrent, the Redditor cuts up the Scarab and tosses it to the ground next to them. However, the Scarab fell close to the Redditor, grazing them as it plummeted to the ground. This slight bump was enough to damage the Tarnished, kill them and end the fight because their health was so low.

It’s hard not to laugh at the fact that the player managed to dodge several attacks from one of the players Elden Ring‘s toughest bosses at the beginning of the clip, only to die from a harmless Scarab. It seems that the Elden Ring community got a kick out of this player’s unique failure, with the post in question garnering over 16,000 upvotes. Redditor’s top commentary OriginalNameNoSteal makes a good point, as they mention that the bloodstain left by the dead player is sure to look incredibly strange.

While Scarabs are usually a great way to recover some from Elden Ring‘s precious flasks without going to a Site of Grace, it seems that players have to be careful not to step directly below them. If they’re low on health, the Scarab’s fall to the ground can be surprisingly deadly.

Elden Ring is now available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
