Prisoner 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.


Prisoners are enemies in Demon's Souls, primarily residing within the Tower of Latria. Most are generally docile, although their tendency to swarm around the player and hamper mobility is problematic. They will also occasionally punch the player for minor physical damage.

A few, however, are armed and will attack the player on sight; knife-wielding prisoners attack with a charging stab that can inflict poison, but the two spear-wielders are merely hard to reach, being located behind iron bars. All varieties uncommonly drop shards of Mercurystone or Moonstone, or Royal or Widow's Lotus upon death.


Combat Information

  • They will punch you if ignored for too long
  • Some will slash with a Dagger, with a chance of poisoning
  • A large group can be a danger as an obstruction, especially if you're fleeing from a more dangerous enemy.



  • Prisoners wielding weapons sometimes hide among the harmless weaponless ones.
  • Some dagger wielding Prisoners hide in Iron Maidens and will inflict Poison.
  • Some Prisoners are stuck in pots and cannot do anything until released (hitting the pot).

      Gotta love how in NG+, you can be wearing Doran's Armor and these trash mobs can just casually flail their withered arm and take away half your HP.

        Don't want to hurt the non-hostile ones, but they're preventing me from moving, so, sorry not sorry, please die

          The unarmed ones actually never attack you directly, no matter how much you ignore them. They swing in the vicinity of breakable objects - vases, chairs, etc. But their aim is terrible and sometimes they accidentally hit you. Poor shmucks.
