Darksiders Wiki

A boss is an extremely powerful enemy in the Darksiders Series.

There are also many Mini-Bosses which are a bit less powerful than the big bosses. Some enemies that would be considered Mini-Bosses would be the Guardians from the "Black Throne" chapter of the game in Darksiders, and the four spiders (followed by the Broodmother) who guard the seal upon Silitha's Loom before fighting Silitha.

In Darksiders 2, there are Super-Enemies called Not Bosses, (or Nosses for short) they are tougher than normal enemies but aren't mini-bosses or Bosses. But, they can be defeated using similar tactics to the Bosses & are more dangerous than average enemies. The Icebound Giant is one example.

In order for Samael to open the path for War to get to the Destroyer in The Black Throne, War must kill four of these Chosen and present their hearts to Samael, as they each contain a fraction of Samael's confiscated power.

Furthermore both she and Fury both comment that beneath the void they mask themselves with they burn with fire.
