If you ever rage quit during an Elden Ring boss battle, keep in mind that someone was able to beat multiple bosses simultaneously while using a controller and dance pad. That’s what one Twitch streamer did not once but three times with some of the game’s most notorious bosses.
Malenia is a demanding boss. With each strike she lands, she regains a chunk of health. Even after you defeat her, Malenia morphs into her second form, and the fight renews. To say she’s a pain in the backside is an understatement. Imagine taking on this boss fight twice simultaneously while using two controllers, one of them being a DDR-style dance pad. That’s what Twitch streamer Miss Mikka did as part of her Ultimate Challenge Run.
In a tweet from the streamer, Miss Mikkaa states that it took 199 tries to pass this odd challenge finally. Considering that Elden Ring asks more of a player than to hack and slash at an enemy mindlessly, it is an impressive feat to topple two bosses at once. It’s even more stunning that she used a dance pad rather than something like the XBOX’s Adaptive Controller. She initially pulled off the same stunt against Margit and Godrick in mid-December and again versus the Godskin Quartet on December 28th.
In case the Tweet does not load, Miss Mikkaa said the following when posting about defeating Malenia: “2x MALENIA HAS BEEN DEFEATED! After 3 days and 199 tries Malenia is dead in the Ultimate Challenge Run where I play Elden Ring twice simultaneously (with a dance pad & controller). In the beginning I was not even sure if this run was possible. Radagon/Elden Beast is next!”

I BEAT MARGIT AND GODRICK (!!) today on my Ultimate Challenge run where I play Elden Ring two times simultaneously (dance pad & controller). It was really hard but we got it in the end! Very satisfying Margit kill where I walk off the battlefield into gravity in the end. pic.twitter.com/X7ApjnfMEn

EYO! Another W for the Ultimate Challenge Run today! We got Mohg, Loretta AND Godskin Duo! Godskin Quartet was the hardest boss so far and it took a while to figure out a good strat that worked well in this seriously difficult challenge where I play 2x Elden Ring simultaneously. pic.twitter.com/pmbp0iuAzt

I put Elden Ring on hold for a while because of the Malenia battle. No other boss fight in the game was as aggravating to me as that one was. Maybe I need to use a dance pad?[Source: Twitter]
