The Demonic Foliage is an enemy in Dark Souls.


Demonic Foliage are encountered in Darkroot Garden.


Demonic Foliage are plant-like enemies. Using a Fire, Chaos type weapon, or a pyromancy, is a good option for quickly eliminating them. Caution should be taken when facing them in large numbers, as they will attack the player from afar, and will also try to grab the player if they get too close.

They also have no poise, so every hit will stagger them. Therefore, chain-hitting them will prevent them from being able to retaliate.
