Chaos Eater is an Enemy in Dark Souls and Dark Souls Remastered. Enemies are hostile creatures that respawn when players rest at a Bonfire or upon death. Special enemies that do not respawn are classified as Bosses, Mini Bosses or Invaders.

Chaos Eater Description

A sickly yellow, inverted cone-shaped enemy that is covered in eyes. A gaping, tooth-ringed mouth opens at the top and their multiple, suckered appendages make a hollow popping noise while walking.



  • Tentacle Slam.
  • Spits corrosive acid that breaks weapons and armor.
  • Grab attack where it proceeds to eat you. Can be escaped by repeatedly pressing L1/R1 in order with no damage done to you.


  • Fight them at a range or try to attack their backs. These enemies have an acid spray which will rapidly degrade every piece of gear you have equipped. Also have a grab attack similar to the Ents in Darkroot Forest, so watch out.
  • There is an area in Lost Izalith that collapses, dropping you down into pit that is full of them. These enemies are especially dangerous if you fall into the poisonous area nearby, making the fight far more difficult. Kiting is your best option in this instance.
  • The poison swamp pit is maze-like but contains several bottomless, square holes where the Chaos Eater(s) can be made to walk over (and fall into) for an easy kill.
  • Chaos Eaters are very weak to fire and lightning.


  • The Chaos Eater vaguely resembles the transcended Kushan Emperor from Berserk.

      Is it just me or are these enemies not dangerous at all? I don't think I've ever had any trouble from one of them.

        Just got a red slab from one of these a few minutes ago. I was helping sir onion and it dropped from the last one that is out of the pit when you go up the stairs to the right just after getting the one from the chest. It is possible!! Had my 10 soft humanity and symbol of avarice on.

          I had the most absurd thing happen recently with the first one you encounter. Coming from the demon ruins and going back through the area to use the lava field bonfire for the boss, the chaos eater blocked my way in the small temple interior and rather than kill it I decided to let it grab me, use R1 and L1 to escape and hop out the other side to get by it solely for the fun of it but as I was running away I had a sudden urge to go back and kill it which I couldn’t resist so I did and well **** it dropped a red slab ..... I had no discovery boosts active at the time. I didn’t need the slab for that character but it’s a very fond memory nonetheless.

            Either I'm unlucky or the drop percentages are incorrect, I farmed these things for 3 hours at 410 item discovery and got white titanite chunks twice, while I got zero red slabs.

              Did anyone actually get a slab from these guys? Because I have been trying for well over 100 times with gold ring and +10 humanity and the slab still has not dropped for me. I feel like it is a myth that they drop slabs at this point. :P

                  I bought 60 homeward bones to farm these guys for slabs, I am left with 24 with 0 slabs (max discovery), atleast I have 50 red titanite chunks i'll never use haha..h..a..

                    Ran 10+ runs to farm Red Slabs with 10 humanity, gold serpent ring and symbol of avarice with 0 slab drops. Wonder if the drop rates are worse than shown as I've received more white chunks than anything.
