- A modder has uploaded videos of their fights against Malenia and Slave Knight Gael in the world of Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice.
- Malenia is exceptionally easy to deal with in Sekiro due to the game’s deflection and parrying mechanics.
- Slave Knight Gael proves to be a lot more of a challenge compared to Malenia.
Recently, a Twitter User, KentoAmemiya, uploaded videos showing the player fighting against Malenia, The Blade of Miquella from Elden Ring, and Slave Knight Gael, the final boss of Dark Souls 3: The Ringed City DLC inside Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. The mods are currently not available on NexusMods.

Malenia, The Blade of Miquella, is one of the hardest optional bosses in all of FromSoftware‘s Souls games. While Malenia might have given the Tarnished from Elden Ring a fair amount of challenge, she was no match for Wolf from Sekiro due to the game’s distinct mechanics. As shown in the video uploaded by the modder, the fight goes incredibly smoothly as Wolf parries almost everything Malenia throws at him.
Many players have expressed the thought ever since Elden Ring came out on February 25, 2022, that Malenia would’ve been a fitting boss for Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. The Blade of Miquella’s moveset features a lot of quick slashing attacks, including the infamous Waterfowl Dance that can be parried easily by Wolf but are incredibly difficult to dodge by rolling or blocking in Elden Ring.
Additionally, the player can use Mikiri Counter to deal with Malenia’s thrust attacks in both Phase 1 and Phase 2. Malenia might be a demi-god and an empyrean in Elden Ring, but in Sekiro, she’s just another prey for Wolf.

The second video uploaded by KentoAmemiya shows the Wolf fighting against Slave Knight Gael. While Gael might be lacking his enormous 3-Phase health bar from Dark Souls 3: The Ringed City DLC, he still managed to be a lot more of a challenge compared to Malenia, pushing the player to the edge throughout the battle.
It has been a while since Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice was launched in March 2019 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The title then went on to win the Game of the Year 2019 award. The game was a unique work of art by FromSoftware, a lot different compared to the Dark Souls franchise. It still keeps up a consistent concurrent player count even after many years.
