There are numerous ways to play through Soulslike titles. These also include some challenges that make the experience even more difficult for the players. The parade discipline here would be a no-hit run, i.e. a complete run through all boss opponents in the game without taking any damage. Although there are always runs in which Elden Ring is played through without damage, not all 165 bosses have been completed. In the summer, for example, we reported on a speed run in which this was done in about 2.5 hours without leveling up. Well, even the absolutely absurd challenge of defeating all bosses in one run without damage has now been mastered by a streamer.
A playful masterpiece
In a nine-hour run, Gino Machino managed to defeat every single boss in the game without taking a single point of damage. Machino has already had a few runs with more or less fun conditions. These include a “normal” no-hit run without defeating all bosses, or playing through the title without weapons or magic.
But this run should certainly be his absolute masterpiece in terms of the Elden Ring (buy now €53.98 / €53.99). It is all the more ironic that Machino describes himself as a “Mediocre gamer” in the description of his Twitch channel. This definition should certainly have been blown up with this challenge at the latest.

More Elden Ring runs
Of course, besides no-hit challenges, there are numerous other ways to experiment with From software play. Complete Elden Ring without running, jumping, or dodging? Has been implemented successfully. Play Elden Ring as a pacifist? Also absolutely feasible, although not necessarily for everyone. But external factors such as the input device can also become the focus of creative ideas, for example if you play through the game with a piano.
