An extremely powerful end-game boss, blocking any escape, possessing monstrous reach, very fast, and dealing heavy damage. After 20 or 30 failures, the player decides to give up and call for help. Then arises facing the wind, the great hero of all time: Let Me Solo Her. A player whose the avatar is only dressed in a loincloth, a pot on his head and two katanas (River of Blood and Uchigatana). As his nickname suggests, he literally took on Malenia solo, taking no damage. Sazed813 didn’t hesitate to share his frustration after such a performance:
He was perfect and put all my attempts to shame. It was very frustrating to see it succeed so easily where I was unable to overcome it in about thirty tries.
