The funniest Elden Ring deaths so far

Must read

What I remember most from the Sekiro launch is streamers getting pranked by the Woo Guy, an enemy whose howling “woo” prompted players to look toward the sky just in time to watch a flying ninja flatten them like a cannonball. It was a perfect videogame moment. 

Elden Ring is so massive that I wonder if its Woo Guy equivalent has even been found yet. The openness of its landscape also generates new kinds of unexpected You Died moments—my favorite so far is the accidental-looking kill that kicks off this roundup—so I suspect that Elden Ring will keep delivering new kinds of FromSoftware-brand misfortune for a while yet.

Below, find some of the most entertaining ways people have died in Elden Ring so far. (That means there are spoilers for enemies and bosses in the videos ahead.

If you’re also dying in Elden Ring, perhaps in a frustrating way rather than an entertaining way, consider checking out our big Elden Ring guide for tips after enjoying this bit of schadenfreude.
