Bosses are powerful and unique computer-controlled adversaries in Destiny, often encountered at the climax of a mission or featured as an integral part of a public event, and tend to be the main antagonist of such events. Bosses are identified by their unique names, such as "Riksis, Devil Archon," and in some instances may have a skull icon instead of a numerical level. Bosses characteristically have large health and deal high damage, usually requiring a group of players to be taken down. Upon death, bosses may drop rare and exotic loot, such as weapons or armor.
