Painting Guardians are enemies in Dark Souls.

LocationEdit

They are encountered in Anor Londo, in the structure that houses the Painted World of Ariamis.

DescriptionEdit

Painting Guardians are alabaster-robed undead humans that wield dual Painting Guardian Swords, which they use in a circular dancing motion. They use throwing knives as their ranged attack and sometimes switch their off-hand weapon to a Target Shield.

LoreEdit

They have guarded the Great Painting of Ariamis for generations, but their reason for doing so has long been forgotten.[1] Their unique fighting style has been passed down through generations.[2]

NotesEdit

  • They can Backstab for heavy damage.
  • This enemy is found in quantity and can quickly overwhelm the player.
  • Their armor can be found in the Painted World of Ariamis.
