It has now been a bit over two months since the release of Returnal, though based on the game’s trophy date, only 21.3% of players have defeated the game’s final boss so far.

Specifically, only 21.3% of players have gotten the “Inner Darkness” achievement for defeating Ophion, the game’s final boss (as of this article’s writing).

The fact that not a lot of players have defeated the game’s final boss is likely due to several factors, the biggest of which we believe is the game’s difficulty.

This means you’ll have to endure another trek through the game’s biomes to defeat a boss if you died to it.

While Old King Allant is technically the penultimate boss in Demon’s Souls, he is essentially the game’s final boss given that the actual final boss is a pushover and not much of a fight.

Based on trophy data, 33% of players have defeated Old King Allant – that’s nearly 12 percentage points more than with Returnal’s final boss completion rate.

Plus, Demon’s Sousl is also considered by a lot of fans to be the easiest among Hidetaka Miyazaki’s games. »
