James of Twinfinite writes "Bosses in Lords of the Fallen often have some sort of elemental property which they rarely use. The Beast has poisonous abilities which have next to no effect and the Champion’s flame empowerment is nothing more than a damage boost. The Annihilator, Lords of the Fallen‘s lightning-fueled menace – who looks distinctively like the Uruk Hai which blew up the wall surrounding Helms deep – bucks this trend. His abilities are all centered around lightning and his big mace. Think of him as a rather evil version of Thor, only without the blond hair and desire to save Natalie Portman."
