Chaos Blade is a Weapon in Dark Souls and Dark Souls Remastered.


A curved sword born from the soul of Quelaag, daughter of the Witch of Izalith, who was transformed into a chaos demon. This blade inherits only the chaotic nature of Quelaag, and has a unique speckled design. Blade wielder erodes along with opponents."

How to Get / Where to Find the Chaos Blade

Ascend a +10 katana with the Soul of Quelaag at the Giant Blacksmith in Anor Londo.

Hints and Tips:

The one-handed Strong Attack is replaced by a dashing horizontal slash, and it eats 20 HP with every successful blow.

  • Give to Frampt to receive 1,000 souls.
  • You will take no self-damage while performing a backstab or a riposte.
  • Bleed build up is 36 per strike, and once inflicted will tear 30% of the opponents HP.
  • With 40 Dex and 10+ Humanity, Chaos Blade +5 has an attack value of 450.
  • With 50 Dex and 10+ Humanity, Chaos Blade +5 has an attack value of 455, proving how little of a difference in damage there is after 40 Dex.
  • Its length and vertical slashing motion make this weapon ideal for cutting off tails.
  • This weapon can not be enchanted with spells or items.
  • If using this weapon for a short period of time, Replinishment or Bountiful Sunlight are ideal to counteract the damage you take while striking.
  • Useful moveset (except strong attacks), fast swing speed and recovery with high attack rating and bleed make the chaos blade one of the best PvP weapons.
  • Ring of the Evil Eye and Replenishment can be used for mitigating the health loss.

Caution! With high Humanity and Dex it can dish out good damage, but it eats away at your Vitality with every successful blow (except back stabs and ripostes), and the R2 attacks are extremely slow. Be aware that you CAN die from using this blade - it will not stop draining your life regardless of your remaining HP.

      Ya, I'm working with 120hp sooo... If there was a passive heal rate I'd do it. It's for high level builds. I enjoy tearing apart below 100 people.

        At 46 dex and 10 humanity, I did 328 damage to a hollow warrior with a +5 chaos blade compared to 301 with a +15 uchigatana with the same conditions. So mixed with the self damage of the chaos blade and it's lack of a second damage type and inability to enchant it, it has very little use .

              I made my own style of the chaos blade or invented it, sketched it and colored it. Lemme give you people the details... two meters tall and twenty centimeters in inches. there are four parts of my sword. Note that it is also tall like this the other one. this might not be very realistic, but it has three parts: one is hilt, and rest is blade the hilt is three quarter of a meter and the blade is one meter and a half. The part you hold of the hilt is a quarter meter tall and the safety piece between the blade and hilt is twenty centimeters in width, and half a meter tall going down to the bottom of the blade a bit diagonally, and a quarter meter up diagonally towards the center. Whatever, I will just upload the image on Google. The hilt is polished gold, and the blades shape is a bit odd. Go on the internet and search fierce deity sword. It is a double helix sword. My blade is three times the bottomart of the blade, making the sword two different blades constantly getting farther then crossing. The left blade piece is blue, and the right is green and the sword blades are rigid-wish the colors overlap at the top. The sword could be hollow (to minimize weight), and is taller than an average man besides, I also made up a character to fit with this. He is under a robe hoodie whatever and is 2 meters tall and is only eighteen years and is an arch swordfighter and brawler, his name is... well a basic name for an arch fighter right? Archu (kind of pronounced like R2) (arch fighter-ish name I took month to choose hope you like a name never used EVER) Sorry is this did not interest you but thanks for reading. I will show the art of the sword on Google in the future. k bye

                  I intended to transform a laito into this blade... then I accidentally ascended my primary Uchigatana into it! I'm in so much regret right now...

                    useless, considering a normal uchigatana has only 30 ar less than this at 40 dex and can be buffed+ has better strong attack. Nodachi has better range and similar ar. The fact that it damages the wielder is just LOL. It was op in dk2, where it can be buffed and has way more ar.

                      This seems like it would make for a good challenge run. It's a suicide mission, but it would be cool I guess. Too bad it can kill you.
