Giant Humanity

Giant Humanity is an Enemy in Dark Souls.

 

Giant Humanity Information

 Black and white spirits that drift within the Chasm of the Abyss. They look exactly the same as the Humanity item, and seem to be a being coalesced from pure humanity. They come in 3 sizes, the larger they are the more health they have and the more damage they do. Their presence is attributed to their proximity to the abyss and to Manus, Father of the Abyss.

Strategy

Giant Humanities have the ability to pass through each other and the player, and damage rapidly on touch. This means that they cannot be blocked by shields, and that multiple enemies can attack simultaneously with ease. If a player is locked on to a Giant Humanity that passes through them, it can cause unexpected swings of the camera, making rolling in a safe direction difficult. They are quite slow, but can surround an inattentive player.    Weapons with long reach, such as Spears and Halberds, can easily inflict damage on the creatures without taking any yourself. Even better, bows or magic will keep you totally safe, rendering the Giant Humanities almost harmless. They are easy enemies if you have a diverse enough arsenal and are patient, as their strength is in numbers. Keeping your distance is the best way to prevent damage.
They deal purely magic damage, so though they cannot be blocked Great Magic Barrier will massively reduce the damage they deal, to the point that they are almost no threat. Magic resistant armour and Magic Barrier can be used to a lesser effect.
Damaging one will cause it to very briefly stun, however they cannot be knocked down and recover quickly. This can be a hazard when using slow weapons.
