Not to be confused with Consumed King's Knight.

Knights of the Deep are enemies in Dark Souls III.


Warriors charged with the duty of defending the cathedral from both trespassers and the abominations created within its walls, these knights wield either a mace, greatsword or crossbow in combat.


Found in a few areas of the Cathedral of the Deep; most prominently along the ceiling's rafters and in a couple of praying areas before reaching Archdeacon Royce's burial chamber.


The knights wielding maces are capable of buffering their weapon, which creates small explosive orbs of light and heal themselves when their health is low. Both of these abilities leave them exposed for a few seconds and it is possible to stagger them out of it.

Knights with greatshields will frequently attempt to shield bash the player if they keep their guard up for too long, whilst the variant with a greatsword will use a shunt to instantly break through a block. These moves briefly leave them vulnerable to a backstab.
