Fists are the weapons in Dark Souls available to the player by default should they have no weapons equipped. Throughout the entire game, stronger alternatives are available, and fists' only effective use are as humiliation weapons or when the player wants to cut down on weight while avoiding confrontations.


Fists are one of the few examples of a weapon that cannot be two-handed. They cannot be upgraded. Also, regardless of the player's Strength or Dexterity, their fists will always have an attack value of 20.

Players that have used the Dragon Torso Stone deal substantially more damage with their fists, which have an attack rating of 400.
