Giant Tick is an Enemy in Demon's Souls and Demon's Souls Remake. Enemies have their own behavior and unique attacks, killing enemies provide various drops that reward players with items and souls.


These repulsive ticks gorge themselves on the blood of the dead or dying in the valley of defilement, causing them to swell up to enormous sizes while feeding. They are essentially obstacles to the player, as their bloated bodies will get in the way.

It is in the player's best interests to take them out with ranged attacks as any damage to them will cause their blood filled stomachs to burst, and splatter the player with blood that will inflict poison. This is their only form of attack and they will become harmless after bursting, hopping around on the ground.


Combat Information

  • Their only real attack is the chance of poisoning if you puncture their sack. When they start to hop, they are harmless.



  • Hit them from a short distance away with a long weapon or ranged attack and pop their sack, they shrink in size and feebly try to hop away from you. Take them down and collect your prize.
  • raise your shield and pop them with a spear, the poison will not get to you as the shield will block it.


Item Drop

      It seems like fire damage negates the poison effect? I hit them with fire every time and have never been poisoned.

        Just for reference. You don't actually need to attack any of them in order to continue through the Valley of Defilement or obtain items etc. Simply roll into them and they will get knocked out of the way with no harm to your character.
