Similar to the Bell Gargoyles encountered later, the Taurus Demon does not immediately appear when the host passes through the fog gate. Rather, the host must travel approximately halfway across the section before the boss appears atop the far tower and leaps down. If there's some range between you and the Taurus Demon, he will crouch down then jump towards you, and bring down his Greataxe in a vertical smash. This attack can be avoided either by rolling backwards or by running towards him, which causes his attack to overshoot you.

This optional boss is located in the Undead Burg. The easiest way to kill this boss is to simply run between his legs, attack him with melee and drive him to the side of bridge, he will fall off and die and you will hopefully still have full health. Watch the video below for tips and strategies for defeating the Dark Souls boss Taurus Demon. At one point during the video, the player uses a jump attack on the boss from the sniper spot. You can do this multiple times. Just run across the bridge to the far end once you use the jump attack on the boss for the first time and when he chases you, run past him and climb the ladder for a second drop attack and an easy boss kill. If the first plunging attack fails to connect, it is possible for the Taurus Demon to become stuck in the crevice between the wall and staircase in front of the ladder.
