Darkmoon knight

The greatsword wielding Darkmoon Soldier is an enemy in Dark Souls.


The Darkmoon Soldier appears after slaying Gwynevere in Anor Londo. He is located in the main Cathedral hall alongside another soldier.


Possibly a surviving knight of Berenike, he utilizes the Steel Set and Tower Shield, as well as a Greatsword.


The Darkmoon Soldier guards the darkened Anor Londo. He either attacks or aids the player depending on if they're in the Darkmoon Covenant, if the player is summoned to the darkened Anor Londo, he and his companion will fight alongside the player. If the player has killed Gwynevere however, they will be hostile.


The Darkmoon Soldier hits hard, but is slow. He is fought alongside a quicker companion who can be seen as a polar opposite, being quick but not doing as much damage per hit. He often has his guard up until an opening is given, and can thus be difficult to combat while the other soldier is around. As such, it is recommended to take out the quicker soldier first so the player can focus on one at a time. The fight should be handled similarly to the earlier boss fight and successfully splitting up the two leads to a huge advantage in this fight.
