Deep Accursed are enemies in Dark Souls III.


A horrific beast resembling a hybrid of arachnid and lycan, these monsters prowl the darkest areas where Aldrich's followers have gained a foothold. They attack with a deadly breath that causes curse and by powerful body slams. Despite its size, the beast is capable of leaping very high into the air before crashing down onto anything underneath.

Only two Deep Accursed are encountered in the game and do not respawn once defeated.



The first Deep Accursed ambushes the player in the Cathedral of the Deep in a small chamber behind a Knight of the Deep. It descends from the ceiling without warning and can be a challenging opponent in the cramped room. However it is unable to leave the room due to the small archway and can be slain with ranged weapons from a safe distance.

The Deep Accursed in Anor Londo is visible on the ceiling in the grand hall and will drop down when the player tries to reach the switch to open the main doors. The pillars can be used as cover however a safer strategy is to retreat up one of the staircases and slay it from a distance. Whilst the beast cannot reach the player, it will frequently jump into the air re-position itself and can cause damage if the player is too close.
