Reaper 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.


They take the appearance of apparitions cloaked in dark robes and wielding harvest scythes.


Combat Information

  • Strong Soul Arrow attack
  • Strong Scythe swipe



  • First off, there are only three of these guys. However, being a personification of Death, they have a Touch of Death attack. So, don't try melee, unless you want to be reduced to a red stain on the floor… Well, you can try melee if you're really brave and proficient. Fire damage dealing weapons, like a Dragon Long Sword, is an effective approach and will kill them quickly.
  • They have the annoying habit of summoning and reviving Shadowlurker.


Item Drop

      The placement of these and their gimmicks are absolute trash, a desperate attempt to create difficulty because every boss in the zone is a joke.

          The Reaper being a killable enemy is symbolic - From is telling you that not even death can stop you if you're determined to win

            Farm these guys for a incredible amount of souls, as the big shadow lurkers will also die when you kill the reapers, giving you all their souls at once. Try having pure black world tendency, ring of avarice, silver bracelet and soulthirst for even higher yield per run. With melee you could consider throwing soul remains (sold by graverobber Blige for 500 each below the adjudicator archstone if you set him free from his cell earlier in the level) to draw their attention away from you while going for the kill. They aren't very tanky, and a couple of solid 2-handed hits will bring them down in no time.
