Brightbugs are restorative items in Dark Souls II: Crown of the Sunken King.

In-Game Description

A tiny bug that produces light. Brightbugs are said to comfort the dead, and are found in the marshlands leading to the Undead Crypt.
By ingesting a brightbug just before death, the moment at which they glow most brightly, one attains great power for a short time. Often utilized as a last-resort for adventurers who have lost their way.
Has no effect in other worlds or for phantoms.


Once the Crown of the Sunken King DLC has been installed, three are sold by Merchant Hag Melentia for 6,000 souls initially. As the player progresses through the game and kills the Old Iron King, Lost Sinner, The Rotten, and The Duke's Dear Freja, she will restock and increase the price for each one slain.

In Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin, one can be found on a corpse after the Belfry Gargoyles boss fight in Belfry Luna.


When consumed, the player will deal 20% more damage and receive 20% less damage. Effects last for two minutes. Brightbugs cannot be used while a phantom is present.
