Bosses are enemies in Bloodborne who feature a larger health bar and may be defeated to consider a stage "cleared". They will usually drop unique items. Players summoned to help defeat a host's Boss will be returned to their own game world after that Boss has been cleared. Bosses listed below are currently known and more will be added when data becomes available. It isn't 100% clear if the Root Chalice Dungeons will pull Bosses at random from the game or if it has its own set of them.

        I think the game changes certain things (enemy weaknesses, drops, item locations, etc.) based on the order that bosses are fought and insight. That may be why only certain bosses are required to be beaten to open a new area that advances the main game. But perhaps it's not that. It simply appears procedurally determined in some ways.

          Took me a minute to figure out what the hell is going on here. Turns out the bosses listed as "Great Ones" are separated from the other bosses, despite there being no functional difference between the two. That's just confusing.

            Bosses not using all of their abilities05 Jul 2016 14:55  

            Has anyone else seen this happen? I've had it a few times, but I'm not sure why. It doesn't seem to be a bug.

              Shouldn't it count as a Great One? It's literally the Moon's Presence. But in an Eldritch, abomination form.

                Rom, the Vacuous Spider in Pthumerian Labyrinth05 Jul 2016 14:55  

                Not sure if it's a bug or not, But I got Rom as a Layer 3 boss, with all his tiny spiders. He was strangely super aggressive at low health, spamming me with magic.

                    I have not experienced this first hand but multiple people from Reddit claim they have fought Rom inside a chalice dungeon. It's increasing possible some of the easier/smaller bosses from the story do appear in the chalice dungeon.

                        Don't even know what's going on anymore.05 Jul 2016 14:55  

                        When I first started Bloodborne for the very first time today, I had no idea how to level up as it's totally different from previous Souls' games. Needless to say, the very first boss I unexpectedly faced, was freaking Father Gas and I got slaughtered within 20 seconds. That was when I lost 4k of blood echoes hoping to repair my weapon. But hey, I thought to myself, I can get it back when I face against Father Gas again, no big deal right? Hell, was I wrong. Instead of using the route to Father, I used another route which led me to another superb boss, which is the Cleric retard. Again, I got killed within 3 minutes or so but at least I managed to reduce its health to half, thanks to them molotovs. After getting mercilessly slaughtered, I awoke at the hunter world ( can't remember the name), and only then can I level up. Mind you, during those memorable onslaughts I faced, I was only level 10. Although I was killed numerous times, I did enjoy Bloodborne, even though sometimes it's pretty frustrating when facing certain enemies.

                          The Silver Werebeast can also be a Chalice Dungeon boss. Ran into him in an Ailing Loran Chalice Layer 2.
