The Demon's Catalyst is a catalyst in Dark Souls.

Note: The translation of this item was incorrect[1] - see footnote.

In-Game Description

Demon catalyst formed from Izalith molten rock. Can be used as fire weapon. The Demon Firesage was the first demon, and the last master of the original fire arts before the Witch of Izalith was engulfed by Chaos, creating pyromancy.


Dropped by the Demon Firesage upon defeat.


The Demon's Catalyst is the second heaviest catalyst in the game to the Manus Catalyst, which weighs one unit more. It has one of the lowest potential magic adjusts of any catalyst, being the lowest until 40 Intelligence where it surpasses the Oolacile Ivory Catalyst and Oolacile Catalyst. It trades these things for being a powerful melee weapon, dealing Fire and Thrust damage with its strong attack. Overall the Demon's Catalyst should be considered as a weapon that can cast sorceries rather than a proper catalyst.

  1. As stated by Miyazaki in the DS1 Design Works interview: "All demons are born from the fire of chaos, but he [Ceaseless] was the first, born so long ago, when the fire wasn't yet stable. He possesses it, but he can't control it and it burns him constantly. Despite his size, he's actually the youngest of Izalith's children, he stands gazing up at the ruins where his sisters live. The only source of comfort in his pitiful, painful existence is the belief that they are watching over him."
