The Porcine Peasant is a dark spirit in Dark Souls II.

In-Game Description

A peasant of unknown origins whose soul haunts the ruins of Brightstone Cove.
This enigmatic character carries the peculiar Porcine Shield, but whether this is a clue to his identity or simply a coincidence can only be left to speculation.[1]




  • Players should be careful, as he may end up ambushing them from behind while they are crossing the wooden bridge, making them fall into the spiked floor and alerting the rest of the Undead Peasants.
  • The player may dispatch of him by shooting arrows or crossbow bolts from the balcony on the second floor of Tseldora town, near the right side of the wall where the Porcine Peasant hides, which may make him step into the spiked floor and drain his health slowly.
  • Special caution must be taken if playing a NG+ game, as an another dark spirit will appear behind the right side of the wall to aid in the ambush.
  • Burning a Bonfire Ascetic on the Lower Brightstone Cove bonfire will make him respawn.
