Combat Information


Typically remains stationary

Favours magic attacks

  • At medium to long range, pulls free hand back and casts a Flame Toss
  • At close range, Casts Ignite

Occasionally lashes whip horizontally

Or, a quicker vertical strike

Crescent Axe

Favours melee attacks. Will jog towards the player.

  • Swift left to right swipe. Sometimes leads into an overhead two-handed chop, if uninterrupted
  • Strong left to right swipe, which has a larger attack radius than the swift left to right
  • Overhead two-handed chop
  • Jumping overhead two-handed chop. Careful now. The forward hop isn't clearly telegraphed.

If you remain in close proximity, he will cast Ignite for heavy damage

If you remain at a distance, he'll sometimes cast Flame Toss



  • These distinctive, portly, laughing demons appear in Stonefang Tunnel and Boletaria Palace. Look for bad taste in clothing with a funny hat and ugly grin. Slow to move, they instead use their own version of the Flamethrower spell to attack you at long range. With decent defense and high health it can take a while to whittle these guys down. At melee range they will attack with their weapons, usually a flexible metal whip or axe. Sometimes they will use the spell at melee range too. They also have a habit of blockading narrow areas and being a general nuisance. If possible, quickly circling them will let you avoid most of their attacks and get in that critical back stab.

    When possible, lock on to them and try to keep them behind an obstacle but a couple of meters away from you. When they do the flame attack, let it hit the obstacle and dash in for a strong attack before getting into cover again. Rinse and repeat and they'll never cause you trouble again. Don't go toe-to-toe with them unless you're got a fire resistance ring and are quick moving. Since they are slow moving, you can control the distance and use hit and roll or range attacks effectively.

    Also note that works well on them. They continue trying to cast spells, but the spell just fizzles, leaving them open for attack.

      Their set is dropped from these officals. The first three are in Stonefang:

      Gloves, across the broken platform, above the gate lever.

      Leggings, in
      the explosive keg room before Armor Spider.

      Armor, turn left and run past the exploding minecarts in the Tunnel City.

      Hat, in the Inner ward after Tower knight, guarding the gate lever.

        The remake version grew on me over time. The only enemy design in the remake that I can’t warm up to is the Mindflayers.

          I prefer the original appearance and laugh BUT the remake did their halberd swings justice. The attacks are so heavy and the sound design is so good it makes me shrivel when my character gets hit by one of them! If you ask me, bluepoint remaking DS1 while staying faithful to it’s visuals would make for the best souls game to date. The DeS remake has some of the best audio and animation design in the series.

            Just remember, even though he may have kicked your ass all those times with cheap spells, sucker-punched you when you weren't looking, laughed at you as he ganked you with Boletarian soldiers, he's still fat and has type 2 diabetes. And nothing will fix that.

              Why isnt the armor listed in the loot table? I know they drop them the first time you kill them but do they drop the gloves and legs after the first kill?
