Mass of Souls are an enemy and miniboss in Dark Souls.


Two are encountered in lower New Londo Ruins.


Giant, wet mass of decaying corpses forming a large face. They can attack with a very long spear that thrusts out from the mouth.

Can spew the "Slime" Negative Status Effect, coating the player from head to toe with sludge. It greatly reduces movement speed, drains health over time and weakens Estus Flask power.

Can create Wisps at will.
