They have the appearance of giant clams with red spikes sticking out of their heads. Their mouths are littered with blue skulls.
While not particularly powerful, Giant Clams have plenty of attacks performed in quick succession that can knock the player on the floor, effectively stun-locking the player to death. This becomes much more evident when they attack in groups.

- Giant Clams are an easy source of Twinkling Titanite. They can be farmed in Ash Lake, returning to the nearby bonfire to make them spawn as many times as necessary.
- Shooting an arrow into the mouth of a clam will briefly stun it.
- In the Crystal Cave, when encountering Seath the Scaleless for the first time, the fog wall is not present. This allows the Clams the chance to enter the room that houses the boss fight, if the player tries to run past them. Seath's attacks can harm them, but they will still only attack the player, making the fight a fair bit more challenging.
