Enemy Names Disambiguation


Dark Souls 2 has two "official" sources for enemy names: the "FarFire" names based on official Dark Souls II Beyond the Bonfire website; and, the FuturePress names based on FuturePress's Dark Souls II Collector's Edition Guide. If a FarFire name for an enemy exists on Beyond the Bonfire, this wiki uses that name. If there is no FarFire name for an enemy, this wiki uses the FuturePress name.

The FuturePress guide has enemy descriptions and also organizes enemies by game area; so, it's really clear which enemies their names refer to. The Beyond the Bonfire site doesn't do either of these things. So, with the FarFire names, we've essentially had to guess which name goes with which enemy. Some are obvious, others not so much. This page represents our best guesses at any given point in time: things may change...

  1. ^ There is a boss of the same name in No Man's Warf. FarFire uses the same name for both.
  2. ^ There is a boss of the same name in Aldia's Keep. FarFire uses the same name for both.
  3. ^ Both FarFire and FuturePress use "Skeleton" to refer to the skeleton in Majula. This wiki simply uses the one Skeleton page for all skeletons in the game.
  4. ^ Farfire uses only one name for this enemy, where FuturePress uses two. FuturePress uses "Old Ironclad Soldier" for the Forest of Fallen Giants enemy, "Ironclad Soldier" for the Iron Keep one.
  5. ^ There is a boss of the same name in Brightstone Cove Tseldora. FarFire uses the same name for both.
  6. ^ There is a boss of the same name in Forest of Fallen Giants. FarFire uses the same name for both.
  7. ^ There is a boss of the same name in Lost Bastille. FarFire disambiguates these by calling the boss "Ruin Sentinel Yahim," "Yahim" being one of the names of one of the Sentinels in the boss fight.
  8. ^ Farfire uses only one name for this enemy, where FuturePress uses two. FarFire does disambiguate between the two, using "Undead Devourer (Large)" in reference to the Brightstone Cove Tseldora version of the enemy. FuturePress uses "Enslaved Pig" for the Majula enemy, "Undead Pig" for the Brightstone Cove Tseldora one.
