Pilgrim Butterflies are enemies in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

The Dragonslayer Armour, controlled by the Pilgrim Butterfly, lost its master long ago, but still remembers their sporting hunts.[1]



Lothric Castle


Note: This section relies heavily on speculation. Very few facts are offered in game to substantiate most of the information here.

The Soul of Dragonslayer Armour is the only mention of these butterfly creatures. Upon close inspection, they are revealed to be composed of flesh and bone, and they are almost bent backward, with their rib cage jutting outward.

Their name may hint to the pilgrims of Londor, like Yoel, who all died on their way to the peak of Lothric; and just like them, the pilgrim butterflies fly upward to the peak of Lothric as well.


  • While passive throughout the course of the level, Pilgrim Butterflies will attack during the second phase of the Dragonslayer Armour's boss battle.
