The Rapier Champion is an enemy in Dark Souls III.


A enemy deprived of most clothing, although that does not make him any less dangerous. He can only be summoned by the second Serpent-man Summoner in Archdragon Peak, shortly before reaching the Great Belfry.



Summoned infinitely by the second Serpent-man Summoner in Archdragon Peak, in a room located after the big open area with the second Ancient Wyvern and before reaching the Great Belfry.


A very dangerous enemy that can easily break through the strongest guards. As soon as he is summoned, the player should make haste and receive him with a backstab. Care should be taken, though, as most likely the Serpent-man Summoner upstairs will start unleashing barrages of homing spells. Fortunately, the first of these may be completely negated if caught during the backstabbing animation.

If it is possible to finish the champion after the initial attack, then that should be done; if this is not possible, then the player should hurry in killing the summoner while the champion is still recovering.

While in combat, the champion will constantly perform his rapier's skill, Ricard's Lunge and Press, where he will unleash quick three-stabbing barrages, culminating with a powerful lunge. The player may attempt to parry this attack, but if unsuccessful, they will sustain heavy damage.

Alternatively, they may opt to roll behind him while he is performing this move and, while he finishes, try to backstab him.
