Giant Hound Rats are enemies in Dark Souls III.


Significantly larger versions of the regular Hound Rats, these giant vermin are stronger and more aggressive.



Giant Hound Rats are often accompanied by several smaller rats and will attempt to distract the player whilst they attack them from behind. Their bites cause rapid Poison buildup, but most of their attacks can be avoid by maneuvering behind them. Despite their intimidating appearance, they are actually less threatening than they appear due to their slow speed and vitality.
