God of War Ragnarok continues the path taken by its predecessor, giving players new and challenging obstacles to overcome. One such feature that the God of War franchise is known for is the famous boss fights. The latest installment continues to bring us some challenging and varied bosses from the Norse pantheon to beat.
The five hardest bosses to defeat in God of War Ragnarok
5. Christ and Nebula
This dynamic Valkyrie duo will remind you of the previous game and how difficult they were to beat. They use both ranged and heavy melee attacks to fight Kratos. Expect to be attacked from multiple angles here, so defensive play is a preferred strategy. This boss fight will be a two-stage challenge, so it would be wise to gear up accordingly.
Odin is the nemesis in this installment of God of War, and the game very effectively builds into the final battle with him in a heartbreaking sequence that takes place right before. He’s not a brawler like previous bosses in the game, but a real trickster, relying on magic-heavy attacks and tricks to hurt Kratos. There are multiple rounds in this boss fight, the last one ending in his study where you can finally unleash a good beating on him.

Nidhogg is a giant serpent that gnaws at the roots of the world tree, Yggdrasil. Freya, interacting with the tree’s roots, will awaken it and force you into a fight. This fight consists of several phases, the first of which is Nidhogg being stuck in the rift. During this phase he will bite and claw Kratos. Nidhogg is a formidable opponent with unique attacks and can deal Bifrost damage to Kratos, so be ready. Try to learn the attack patterns as soon as possible because he will be much faster in the third phase.
2. King Hrolf Kraki
King Hrolf Kraki is a Berserker King and an optional boss fight in Midgard. To fight him, you must first defeat all other boss berserkers. King Hrolf integrates their attacks and defenses, but is more aggressive. Dodging and pairing are essential during this fight, as the Berserker King will actively attempt to walk through your blocks to deal massive damage. His attacks also include elemental effects like fire, frost, shock, and more. Practice and equip your chosen rune ability before battle to maximize your chances of success.
Valkyries are notoriously difficult to master in God of War’s Norse series, and this installment gives us a Valkyrie Queen Gna and a boss fight to remember. Defeating the Valkyrie Queen will not be easy, even with maximum gear and stats. Players have reported having trouble remembering their attacks, which are very unpredictable. They’re diverse and fairly fast, giving you a small window of opportunity to avoid them, and they’re all very harmful. You can’t block most of them, so you’ll need to memorize them to know how and when to dodge them. The most effective way to damage Gna is to either dodge her ranged attack, or parry her broadwing attacks and immediately retaliate with a quick combo.
