The Unkindled Fallen Knight is a non-respawning enemy in Dark Souls III.


A enemy clad in the Fallen Knight Set. Can be very dangerous if he is not dealt with before facing the Unkindled Brigand.

Uses a variety of combat mechanics, including switching between holding a shield and a dagger with his left hand, wielding his weapon with one or two hands, throwing knives, and frequently using his sword's "Stance" skill.


Found near the beginning of the Cathedral of the Deep, at the end of a partially concealed slope to the left of the Cathedral of the Deep bonfire, guarding the Paladin's Ashes. Will attack from behind if the player continues onward, most likely while fighting the Unkindled Brigand.


The Unkindled Fallen Knight can be very dangerous against unprepared players. His fighting methods are somewhat similar to Hodrick's. He dwells hidden at the end of a slope located to the left of the Cathedral of the Deep bonfire and is intended to surprise the player from the rearguard while they are occupied engaging the Unkindled Brigand. Even alone, this enemy can be a major threat due to his advanced combat mechanics and high resilience.

When he switches to his dagger, raise a shield with good stability; upon hitting it, he will stagger and be open for a counterattack.

He frequently performs his sword's "Stance" skill in an attempt to break the player's guard. If successful, he will follow with a riposte without compassion, which in many cases will mean the end of the battle. On the other hand, this attack is the key to easily defeat him. When he approaches with his sword wielded with two hands and pointing forward, lure him into attacking and retreat, making him miss and leaving him open for attack.

He throws knives at the player every now and then, but he is also prone to fall for them, so throw some at him too whenever the occasion merits.

Players prepared with well upgraded weapons should not have much trouble with this enemy.
