Sunlight Maggot is a Helm in Dark Souls.
Sunlight Maggot Description
"A loathsome parasite that inhabits Lost Izalith. It is completely immobile, yet still lives. When worn on the head, it emanates blinding light, which is why it is known as a Sunlight Maggot."
How to Get / Where to Find Sunlight Maggot
- Dropped by the red-eyed Chaos Bug found in the secret passageway that connects Demon Ruins to Lost Izalith.
- Can be obtained either by using the shortcut from Demon Ruins to Lost Izalith (requires "Chaos Servant +2"), or through exploration behind the Titanite Demon in Lost Izalith (does NOT require "Chaos Servant +2").
- It can only be received once each play-through, since the red-eyed bug will not respawn.
- Sunlight Maggot cannot be upgraded.
- One of three light sources available. The other two being the Skull Lantern and the Cast Light spell.
- Will work in the Chasm of the Abyss, can be useful to light up the path in the Tomb of Giants, or to reveal hidden doors in Oolacile Towship.
- Can be traded to Snuggly for the Old Witch's Ring.
- Can inflict Fire damage if the wearer falls on the target from above.

I AM THE SUN
I'm not sure if this is true, but can anyone confirm if sunlight maggot repels dark sorceries? Had an invader in Tomb of Giants shooting Dark bead at me two or three times and each time it did very little damage. It wasn't at point blank, but still quite close for it to deal significantly more.
keep it until u finish tomb of the giants
it can be used the same as skull lantern but better since its a helmet
after u finish the tomb you can give to snuggly for the old witch ring
btw the ring is only for lore and it's useless if u aren't in the choas servant convenant
Don't worry, don't hurry
Take it easy
Let the good vibes
Get a lot stronger
Gimme just a little smile
That's all I ask of you
(Is that too much?)
does this thing's light stagger freakin' Manus? i had it on my head from traveling around in the dark and when i fought him, he would, rarely(twice in the whole fight) step back slowly with a hand to his face..
Can cause fire damage if you fall on people
Just don’t talk to Solair at Anor Londo. Go and kill the chaos bugs and one of them is guaranteed to drop the Sunlight maggot. Then go warp back to Anor Londo, talk to him by the bonfire and you’ll save him.
Its dark, so dark... :((
Can you get a second sunlight maggot helmet in New game+?
Does the sunlight maggot work in the chasm of the abyss (dlc)?
Any reason to bother with solaire he is toataly unessary you dont even need to go kill him just ignore him and let him enjoy having a magot for a head
Killed Solaire at the bridge. The sunlight maggot was not there
Thank you for giving me a shortcut to this chaos waifu.
If you don't have the spells to hit the maggots, go to Ash Lake and chop off the stone dragon's tail. It won't become hostile. Take the Dragon Greatsword and use the fully charged R2 to hit the Sunlight Maggot through the door.
Can be used to open illusory walls drom dlc.
Failed to kill the maggot in time, went up against Solaire and had to kill him. But didn't get the maggot. Went back to the room the maggots appeared first in and it was back there. With red eyes and all. Just a tips if you somehow didn't get it.
No need to waste 30 humanities. Simply use Poison Mist or White Dragon breath on a middle part of the gate and kill the maggot. If you did it right you'll see maggot's life ticking away. Then kill Firesage demon travel through lost Izalith kill or run past titanite demon on the bridge and pick up your ugly headdress. Anyone who kills Solaire doesn't deserve to live and won't get his help fighting big fire bug . Not like anyone actually need his help but I love to summon him for jolly coop.
Solaire can be saved as you need to kill all of these things and the infestations. By doing so Solaire will introduce you a dialogue of disappointment in his speech and gets depressed. But you'll save him nevertheless. By doing so you have a brother in arm in summoning him for the final boss fight of the game.
Failing to get rid of the infestation for a first run through will result in him getting the helm and going insane and hollowed turning hostile towards you. Not sure if he drops it if you killed him but you will lose him as a buddy to fight with in the endgame.
You simply have to kill it before he gets to where it was in any way. Whatever you do, don't talk to him at the bonfire after the centipede demon fight if you haven't killed it. That guarentees failure!
I'm pretty sure that there is a way to save Solaria, i don't know were i heard it so it might not be true.
After killing solaire I took this thing dropped it, and started swinging my sword at it hoping solaire would come back ;-;
rip solaire :(
Unbelievably valuable piece of equipment when acquire before attempting Tombs. Unlike the skull lantern, the sunlight maggot allows a player to explore Tombs with a constant light regardless of action while playing having both hands free to equip a shield and weapon.. now how cool is that?
