This may be a stretch...but is that Baldur knight supposed to be an omaj to Guts?

No but they do look similar now that you mention it. It's the way the Balder set is designed I think, looks similar to Guts' old armor.

Good pic, although I don't know why, but I think The Chosen Undead doesn't get enough credit, I mean, yeah he dies, but death is near meaningless to him, since he can just get back up again, and canonically, he DOES triumph over everyone, even Artorias, Manus, and Gwyn, weakened as the last one is.

While it is undeniably praiseworthy that he killed Manus and the Lord of Sunlight's husk, Artorias was pretty disadvantaged when he was put down. I mean, he *was* wielding his sword in his off hand after all. Don't get me started on his shield (or lack thereof)

Yeah, but chances are Artorias would've been defeated by Manus even if he were at full strength.

Good point. Btw do we actually know if Manus is the one who felled Artorias?

I think the game outright says Manus defeated Artorias. Dusk of Oolacile IIRC says that Artorias lost because he wasn't human like the Chosen Undead because something something Humans are Special or something, I dunno, the game is vague as hell bout it.

Its because the Abyss is born from Humanity. You will not be corrupted by the Abyss, technically you are a part of the Abyss. Artorias is a "lesser god", same race as Orstein, Havel and black/silver knight. Just BE in the Abyss could corrupt Artorias, even with his ring. That's why he had his shield. But to protect Sif, he gave up the shield and the Abyss started to corrupt him. So against Magnus, without shield, his left arm broken and devoured by the Abyss... He didnt have a chance.

And no, he really did not fight you with all his strength. He would be the fucking hardest boss in the entire game. Imagine this boss, with an unbreakable shield, more damage and even more fast movement !

Keep in mind that the Gwyn you fight in the game is a powered down version of Gwyn because he's gone all hollow

who isnīt powered down in the game? artorias is corrupted by the abyss, gaping dragon is corrupted by greed, Gwyndolin is a camper-running-sniper cunt, solarie losted his god powers, gough and seath are both blind, the Fair Lady... well, all the Izamith family is fucked up, ornstein is protecting a booby illusion and needs the asistance of that fat faggot, the golem is bored as fuck, tarkus was so bored that he left his armor near ariamis paint to makes things more challenging, Nito is dead... and needs the asistance of the skeletons when you fight him... the only one who knows the meaning of honor and sanity in dark souls is probably sif, who tries to save you from the abyss...

I don't think they did.  It's more likely that he fell from the rafters after a miscalculated swing with the great sword.  Or they ganked him up there and then fell to his death.

Artorias is quite the badass. I mean even in the dlc that's sorta about him they don't let you fight him at full strength. I mean his shield arm is broken if I remember correctly and either way he's not using it. Not to mention he didn't have the aid of his sword puppy who would later grow to be, an admittedly easy, boss of his own.
