Short Spear is a Spear Weapon in Demon's Souls and Demon's Souls Remake. Spears are capable of inflicting narrow attacks, dealing heavy damage from mid-range. They work best against enemies wearing armor made of metal and hard scales but can easily be parried by enemies and struggle at breaking an enemy's guard. Players can equip the Spear along with a Shield  to have a balance between defense and attack.

 

A standard spear. Spears function as rapiers with a longer reach.

They have a narrow attack range but deal heavy damage. Spears perform well against metal armor and hard scales in particular.

Howerver, they are easily parried and do little to break an enemy's guard, though they also allow one to attack with a shield raised.
