The Chained Prisoner is an enemy in Dark Souls, AotA DLC. 


One is found guarding the Oolacile Township Dungeon at the end of Oolacile Township.

Several red phantom Chained Prisoners spawn in the Chasm of the Abyss when the world has been infected by a Gravelord Servant.


A bizarre, swollen mass of filth with legs. It uses a boulder attached to some chains, and a protruding spike as a weapon.


The Chained Prisoner is a tough enemy that is resistant to most attacks. A quick way to deal with it is to either avoid it completely, or use Miracles, Sorceries, or Pyromancies.


  • Like the Fang Boars, the Chained Prisoner is heavily armored, causing weapons to be deflected after each hit.
