Defenders of the Flame by LazyRemnant Defenders of the Flame by LazyRemnant
Since Lord Gwyn, the first Lord of Cinder, many exalted lords have linked the First Flame, and it is their very souls that have manifested themselves as defender of the flame.

Hello, thank you for stopping by. :)

Another love letter to Dark Souls III. :love:
I am seriously in danger of losing desire to play any other (non-Souls) games...

This boss is my favorite of all Souls series so far (the DLC hasn't come out yet and it may contain someone even more badass :pray: ), because he represents everyone who has played Dark Souls. And the fact that FromSoft/Bandai Namco had the guts to use the final boss as the face of marketing and promotions! 

Even if the fight isn't really that hard, it's still filled with awesomeness.... that turns into sadness when phase 2 begins, and ends. Waaaah! 

I know, there's one weapon/style I didn't include there, but that's simply because there are only 4 characters to represent ^^;

I love how you drew it to show that you're fighting yourself from DS1 and 2 and Lord Gwyn.  makes this final boss more impactful if you played the previous 2 games. :D

I love how the Soul of Cinder is made of not just the Souls of those who linked the flame in the past, BUT THE CHOSEN UNDEAD FROM DS 1 and 2!  It's even better if in DS1 you did link the flame cause then that means the Soul of Cinder is using you, the Chosen Undead/Player of DS1, to fight YOU!  Also, If you look closely at the armor of the Soul of Cinder, you see bits and pieces of the armor that the Chosen undead of Dark Souls 2 is seen wearing in the DS2 trailer, Fan art, etc (The Faraam Armor)  

But here's an interesting question: Since its using the Souls of the main character of DS1 and 2.... What Lord of Cinder would we be?  Just a thought.

You don't know how amazed I am and heartbroken at the same time
no, not because your art style is amazing
Not because he parried me in his Obobobo form (he actually does parry, youtu.be/AC83xGXzhmI?t=46s)
And not because Soul of Cinder is essentially us from previous Souls Games, [The fans wanted their previous characters as bosses]
(That aside, where's my ninja-flipping ring-swapping Claymore strats?)
But because when those 3 DAMN PIANO NOTES played just when Phase 2 kicked in, I dropped the controller, and let nostalgia flood in because the old bastard's back for a rematch and with the nostalgia, my parry spamming because boy, did I spam parry back in the Kiln, but it turns out it didn't help because Soul Of Cinder can't be parried

I know he can parry, it's to catch greedy players off-guard, just like in that video.
In fact, he can parry multiple players, although only one will be riposted.

I always took time to bow to him when phase 2 started (and ended), moreso if I helped other players, to show my deepest respect. :)

Straight outta L2 town, I suppose, I remember when people would R1 spam BKGS nonstop, making for easy parries
Double/Triple parries are rare in PvP,  because gankers rarely strike in-sync


It's kinda sad if those players have DS3 for their first Souls game, they'll never know just how much nostalgia's hidden in the game
