Oscar of Astora (Hollow) 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.


Oscar of Astora (Hollow)

The remnant undead form of the knight who gave you the Estus Flask in the tutorial stage. When you return to the asylum you may see him walking around but beware: he is not the same man he was the first time you met....





  • No special strategy is needed. Engage, dodge, kill. Parrying is easier when he fights one handed. He also is overburdened so whenever he rolls, feel free to wail away

      I don't know why but in NG+ when I left the room where he was he just died, like if he had committed suicide

            If you think about how the game starts it's kinda funny, you are an undead fated to rot in prison until the end of the world, but... It doesn't happen, some random knight drops you a corpse and before you know it you are in Lordran, slaying skellies, maidens and hollows. People say that in DS1 you can parry the world but I believe that he parried the fate itself.

              I believe that the ensuing despair he felt at being unable to even overcome his first obstacle as an undead is what turned him Hollow.

                I went to get the peculiar doll and fight against the black knight, but when I reached the ladder, Oscar appeared out of nowhere and tried to reach me and got stuck behind the black knight. In the middle of the chaos, Oscar backstabbed the knight and passed by him to be backstabbed twice by the tall guy, dying. I just had to R1 the man and get the shield and doll at once, lol.

                  I accidentally killed Oscar after he gave me the items, and he kinda just spirited away, saying "But... Why...?"
                  Did I miss anything by killing him before he became hollow?

                    Upon my return to the Asylum, I was working my (wrong) way towards the Rusted Iron Ring - I think - and had the Black Knight on my tail. I managed to get back towards where the Iron Ball rolls into the wall and, of course, I died. As I went back to collect my souls, I noticed that Oscar wasn't there... He had died. From either the Iron Ball or the Black Knight attacking, or both. I still feel upset.

                      He should at least be spared, hollow or not. It's almost as regretable as fighting Sif. I regret killing both him and Sif on my story. I will use his shield and treasure it as a momento of his death.
