A mass of corpses crammed into a cage, these enemies lie in wait before ambushing victims. They are not restricted to melee attacks only, and may also throw four Dung Pies in quick succession, although they rarely do this.
- Generally encountered in darkened environments, like those of abandoned houses. Several are found inside the big house at the far end of the open area with the Evangelist and the praying hollows.
- Several are found hanging on the ceiling of the house past the Demon.
- A non-hostile cage madman can be found in the small hamlet past the stables' side path. He sings a vague hint on how to enter the Mound-makers covenant.
- Several are found in the initial cell block of the dungeon, on the first floor of both wings.
Cage Spiders, on account of their cages, are resistant to slash and strike attacks, but vulnerable to thrust attacks and fire. Although they do not inflict much damage, their erratic and flailing attacks can be frustrating when trying to kill them with short-range weapons due to the fact they easily stagger you. They are best fought with spears, throwing knives, firebombs, or pyromancies.
Dormant cage spiders can be easily revealed by locking on to them.
Several are found hanging from the ceiling of the house past the Demon. They will drop and attack altogether if the player picks up the item they guard. They can be identified from dead ones by locking on to them, allowing to be dealt with one by one by aggroing them with ranged attacks.
Hidden somewhere in the Undead Settlement, in the small hamlet past the stables' side path, is the Cage Madman, a non-hostile cage spider. If talked to, he will sing a vague hint on how to enter the Mound-makers covenant.
