Chaos Bugs are enemies in Dark Souls.


Chaos Bugs are found in the shortcut connecting Demon Ruins to Lost Izalith.

General InformationEdit

A total of nine Chaos Bugs are in the shortcut and they have no means of inflicting damage.

A single Chaos Bug appears in Dark Souls II; during the introductory cutscene of the Lost Sinner, one is seen hanging out of the eye socket of her mask, before briskly crawling back inside.


  • If left alone for too long, Solaire of Astora will somehow perish whilst among the Chaos Bugs.
  • Only eight of the Chaos Bugs respawn. The red-eyed Chaos Bug that drops the Sunlight Maggot does not respawn.
