Great Moths are enemies in Dark Souls II.


A large number of Great Moths can be found throughout the Huntsman's Copse, past the Bridge Approach bonfire.

Scholar of the First SinEdit

In Scholar of the First Sin, many non-hostile (and non-respawning) Great Moths have been added to other various locations in the game. Since they don't oppose any threat, their presence only serves to provide the player with their guaranteed drops, as long as they keep an eye looking for them.

A lone, passive moth can be found above Servants' Quarters bonfire in the Lost Bastille.

Two moths can be found near the Shaded Ruins bonfire in the Shaded Woods.

A special Great Moth can be found after dropping into a small room before reaching the Central Gutter bonfire in the Gutter. It appears only as a silhouette, which may render it difficult to see due to area's low visibility.

A couple more can be found perched high on the trees and ruins throughout the Shrine of Amana.

One can be seen on the stalactites in the Undead Ditch, in the long corridor leading to Veldstat.


Great Moths, as their name suggests, are very large, orange moths. They bear a strong resemblance to the real world Emperor Gum Moth.

General informationEdit

Great Moths are generally harmless, remaining stationary on walls or high above on trees. However, they will release a large cloud of poisonous powder when the player is nearby. The cloud inflicts Poison buildup at an alarming rate and only a few seconds of exposure is needed to poison the player. As such, it is advised to keep an eye out for them to avoid being poisoned while exploring or fighting.

Great Moths have very low HP and can be taken out by a single hit from most attacks. However, they are usually outside of melee range, so one must use ranged weapons or magic to fight them.

It can be worthwhile to seek out and kill them whenever they are encountered, as they always drop a clump of Poison Moss upon death.
