Headless Gargoyles, also known as Gargoyle Lancers, are enemies in Dark Souls III.


Giant Stone Gargoyles that guard the Profaned Capital from intruders. There are two variants: one with a spear resembling a lantern and another with a spear resembling a torch, the latter being able to deal Fire damage.

A stronger variant with skull-like head appears later on the rooftops of the Grand Archives.



Headless Gargoyles are often positioned on bridges or rooftops so the player should be mindful of their surroundings when engaging them in combat. They will disguise themselves as regular statues and will spring to life when in close proximity, although striking them with a ranged weapon will trigger them early. Their attacks inflict Fire damage and they can block attacks with their wings. If struck during this, they will retaliate with a shunt that can send the player flying.

Gargoyles will often take flight and attempt to strike the player from above before crashing down on top of them. By running underneath when they jump, it is possible to sprint past them.
