The Dark Hand is a fist which doubles as a shield in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

Weapon that allows its wielder to evoke an art unique to Londor, the land of the Hollow. It is also said to be an ancient relic of a Primordial Serpent.
The Dark Hand mercilessly saps the essence of its victims, and can also double as a special shield. Cannot be used two-handed.
Skill: Lifedrain
Embrace the victim and steal their HP. Can only be used against humans.


Sold by Yuria of Londor for 12,000 souls.


Functions as a shield when used in the left hand, and a one handed fist in the right hand.



  • The Dark Hand is the only base game weapon dealing Dark damage, except for the Deep Battle Axe found in the High Wall of Lothric, which is merely an infused weapon.
  • The Dark Hand's skill is similar to that of its Dark Souls counterpart, although if it lands on a non-playable character in this game, the player will enter a grab animation where they will drain out life from such character in a similar way as Darkwraiths do.


Cannot be upgraded.
