I did that earlier and I'll use it as an example: I was fighting the Guardian thingy in the DLC, and after smashing it sufficiently with the zweihander until it was near death, I ended up finishing it off by tossing a great chaos fireball at it as it was doing an aerial charge towards me, so the fireball collided with it in midair and I just saw the molten eruption of the blast obscure its form and heard it die.

To a lesser extent, I also prefer to kill Sif with one last grand powerful attack that is strong enough to kill him before he enters his weakened state, as a sort of dorky honor thing, letting him die in battle without ever showing weakness. <_< Fire Tempest works well for that.

Speaking of Fire Tempest, on a lighter note re: boss dispatchments, my most recent fight with Iron Golem, I elected to act sort of like a hot-blooded shounen character. So, with power within active, dusk crown and bellowing dragoncrest ring equipped, I basically just charged towards him, cast fire tempest, and threw him off balance, so I cast again then he fell backwards to his death, with such severe health loss that one more hit from a pillar likely would have killed him. The whole fight lasted like 15 seconds and was just RAWWRRGH BURN EVERYTHING and blew him away in a fiery hellstorm of rage.


Ahem...

Well not really cinematic, but interesting,

Seeing as how I got the expansion recently, been running Art, almost every time I've fought him I did it fairly, IE fought him 1v1 as much as possible and stuck to melee,
I should also mention I'm using his armor set, greatshield, and true greatsword.

I like killing bosses with their own weapons.

Bell gargoyles are pretty susceptible to the tail axe, since it so easily stuns them.

One shotting the first Taurus demon after going through the entire game, I was at gwyn and realized I never took him out, so I went back with my zwei +15, jumped down from the archer post and took his full health bar out

I did that in the first playthrough I ever finished. Except I did it while he was still my first boss. Black Knight dropped the BK sword so I went back and levelled for it.

Felt strong mang. used it the whole game.

Even better if you do that when it's buffed with charcoal pine resin.
