The Key to the Embedded is both a greatsword and a key in Dark Souls II.

In-Game Description

Sword that opens the Embedded's door. Shaped like a weapon, but is in fact a key.
Plunge the key into the Embedded to bring a rhapsodic end to his fate.
The once-human Embedded, realizing that he could never resist the temptations of the flesh, bound himself eternally with chains. Since then, he has awaited the day that somebody will find his key, and bury it within his bosom.

AvailabilityEdit

Dropped by the Demon of Song.

UseEdit

The key is used to free the Milfanito from imprisonment by the Embedded in Drangleic Castle. The cage where she is held can be found by going left from the Central Castle Drangleic bonfire and taking the elevator up. This is the same room where the player originally finds the Key to King's Passage. Upon use, the key will be removed from the player's inventory.

NotesEdit

  • The Key to the Embedded is classified as a key in-game as well as a weapon. This means that even if the player chooses not to use it on the Embedded, upon moving on to the next game cycle (NG+ and on), it is removed from the player's inventory and must be obtained again. Using a Bonfire Ascetic to fight the Demon of Song in NG will also produce a second Key to the Embedded.
  • Strangely enough, the key's description says that the Embedded awaits for someone to find his key and bury it in his bosom. However, upon use, the animation depicts the key placed into his face and turned.
  • The Key to the Embedded cannot be upgraded.
