Radahn combat has some unique aspects, most notably the fact that a number of famous warriors from the game’s fictional universe are summoned to fight alongside you. This helps distract Radahn, allowing players to sneak up on damage without being instantly hit. It also means that Radahn is built to take on an entire roster. There are also classic Souls moments like the way he disappears mid-air in mid-fight only to crash back down to earth shortly after rain death and destruction.
