Bat Wing Demon (Imps) is an Enemy in Dark Souls.
Bat Wing Demon (Imps)
A relatively small light coloured demon brandishing a Demon's Spear. Your first encounter with them sees them carry you from Sen's Fortress to Anor Londo unharmed, but all other encounters with them there-after are decidedly more hostile.
- 500 Souls
- Demon's Spear
- Forward lunge
- Jumping attack
- Thrown lightning spear
They don't aggro until you're reasonably close, giving you time to prepare once you see one. Once you have their attention though, be ready to fight. Stay too far away and they'll throw their lighning spear, so it's best to get up close for melee, although some are found dangerously near the edge of long drops and a single arrow will can stagger them and make them fall off the edge they're standing beside. Their spear causes lighting damage that can pierce your shield, so don't assume you're safe behind a shield. They are quite quick at dodging melee attacks and can then counter quite quick too, so be careful if you're wielding a slow weapon. If you have magic or pyromancy, cast a spell to pull them and then quickly finish them with melee attacks. Watch out for their two hit combo, as it looks like they are retreating before lunging again.
Like many of the enemies found in Anor Londo, they are very resistant to lightning.
