Bat Wing Demon is an Enemy in Dark Souls


Bat Wing Demon Information

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.





  • 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.

      I just realized they share a striking resemblance with ulquiorra cifer from bleach in his final form. Similar weapon choice and use aswell. Kubo must have pulled inspiration from these

        If you notice it, these little guys possess some of Gael's moves, such as the plunging attack and the lunging attack, all from first phase.

          Played the original demon souls on ps3 recently, never realized this but their version of these guys actually have better AI and can’t die to falling off a ledge even though they have wings, I always wondered why that was a thing and now I’m wondering why they didn’t just copy and paste their AI since they are so similar.

            The way the bat wing demons take you from sens fortress to anor londo seems quite similiar with the way the goons in kings quest 4 take rosella to lolottes castle. 1 for each arm and 1 just flying with you

              These ******* are a massive pain on a knife build. One hit knocks them out of your weapon range and they recover quickly.

                The link is broken under the category "Drops: Demon's Spear". Returns "Demon's+Spear+" where it should be "Demon's+Spear" (without the plus sign at the end)

                  Why do all of the bat wing demons vanish in anor lando once the illusion is broken EXCEPT the one that carries you to and from sen’s fortress? Is there a lore reason I missed?
