Dragon God is the most powerful creature in the game, probably in the entire series. There is a reason you don't fight him directly and even his breath can kill you. He makes Midir look tame.

That's not how I see it. Dragon God gets literally taken down by two ballistas that anyone could have fired (but the soldiers were too late). You simply zig-zag until pressing two buttons, and that gets the God to its knees, waiting for you to come closer and finish the job. He's like Seath; maybe impressive lore-wise, but an actual pansy when fought.

Dragon God highlights one of my biggest issues with Demon's Souls. It features some of the easiest bosses in the franchise, some as disappointing as part of the Arch Demons themselves.

Would love to see the first you played the game.

He is an easy boss because of those ballistas. Otherwise he is tremendously powerful as can be seen from in game descriptions.

1. God's Wrath

 

Miracle from the Demon Dragon God's Soul

Generates a strong blast of force around the caster.

This miracle represents the power of God against tremendous malice. It is one of the greatest miracles, aiding all who are righteous.

 

2. Firestorm

 

Spell from the Demon Dragon God's Soul

Generates a storm of fire around the caster.

A spell mimicking the raw power of the Dragon God, Sultan of Chaos. Its devastating flame is impossible to control.

 

3. Fireball

 

Shoots a ball of fire and generates an explosion.

Born from dragon bones soaked in lava, this Demon was the embodiment of the power inherent in the colossal flames.

 

He is the only boss that can really kill you in 1 or 2 hits in NG regardless of your soul level. Those ballistas you fire are huge and he still survives 2 of them. He is also called a God and in all the Souls games Gods are the most powerful of their group so I do believe he is the strongest Dragon in any Souls game.

I never died to any of the Arch Demons (excuse the unavoidable cutscene at the start) sans the Old Monk, which during my playthrough, he had players posing as him and made a much more difficult and thrilling scenario. Maneaters, Penetrator and Old Hero were far more hard than "Press X to suicide" Astraea, "Hide behind pillars then press two buttons then smack a horn" Old God, "Spam the special attack" Storm King and "Watch me charging a very powerful attack while you attack me first and stunt me" Fake King Allant (admittely, this last combat holds some merit). Let's just not mention the real King Allant.

All in all, Demon's Souls is fairly balanced, but the majority of the bosses are an utter joke, fight-wise. It's disappointing that most of these happen to be the fabled Arch Demons, as well.

I'm not talking lore-wise, however, which is something I can agree with Dragon God. It's like Seath the Scaleless in Dark Souls, which shares many similarities to Dragon God. They both defeat the player at least once, they're the responsibles for very powerful magic (those spells in Demon's Souls, and Sorceries in Dark Souls), and they are both responsibles of massive cataclisms. In both their battle grounds, you can see the remnants of battles within (dead soldiers with the Dragon God, and cursed knights with Seath). Ultimately, however, they're vanquished by the player in a fairly easy combat. Dragon God goes down with two ballistas (otherwise he can't be damaged), and Seath goes mortal by shattering the crystal (otherwise he can't die).

I wanted an actual battle, vanquishing the giant foe, but that's not what you get, which is what I found disappointing. You get two cutscenes and then a mercy killing.
