The Stray Demon is an optional miniboss in Dark Souls III.

DescriptionEdit

One of the last surviving demons left in the world, the Stray Demon resembles its counterpart from the Undead Asylum, although its body appears to be made of stone and lava rather than flesh and blood.

LocationEdit

Found pacing at the top of the ruined fortress in the Farron Keep, above from where the Old Wolf of Farron bonfire is located.

StrategyEdit

The Stray Demon fights like most demons found in the first game, although it has a couple of attacks of its own. It can spew a barrage of rocks at the player from a distance, or it can grab them and throw them off the bridge, which results in an instant death.

The barrage of rocks have extreme knockback, so it is advised to run behind the demon when it starts using this attack. Its grab is notoriously fast, which makes it very difficult to evade, and is usually performed immediately after a previous attack, often when the player is trying to score a hit of their own. It is then advised to always try to attack it from behind. Care must also be taken in this situation, though, as the demon will start performing backward spinning sweeps with its great hammer or wail its tail in order to deal with enemies on the rear.

The demon may occasionally stop for a moment and take flight, letting itself smash onto the ground for an area-of-effect attack. The area covered by this attack is not too big, however, and the demon will take a couple of seconds to recover, giving the player ample time to score a few hits.

Inflicting enough damage to its legs will cause them to shatter, leaving the demon almost unable to move. Players should not get overconfident, though, as the monster will still be dangerous. It may perform numerous horizontal swings with its great hammer in quick succession, or perform a powerful smash on the ground with it. However, the player may be able to deal enough damage fast enough while in this state, which will stagger the creature and leave it open for a critical attack, which will most likely end the battle.
