The Scythe is a halberd in Dark Souls.

In-Game Description

Halberd with a large blade. Scythe adjusted for battle.
Designed especially for slicing. However, one false swing leaves one wide open.

AvailabilityEdit

Found in the pit with the Titanite Demons in Sen's Fortress.

CharacteristicsEdit

In terms of base damage, the Scythe is identical to the Halberd, but has a lower scaling with the Strength stat and a higher scaling with the Dexterity. Shares its moveset with the Gargoyles Halberd.

TriviaEdit

The scythe in Dark Souls has more in common with a bardiche or halberd than a real scythe. However, in medieval and early modern times, it was common for scythe users (usually part of a peasant rebellion) to reattach the blade of the scythe to be parallel to the shaft. This makes it easier to use in combat as it meant the blade was less likely to get stuck or fall off.
