* Depending on the player's chosen endings, the Chosen Undead, Bearer of the Curse, and Ashen One could all be considered Lords of Cinder.
** It is implied that Lothric never actually linked the fire despite being destined to. Instead, he chose to watch from a distance as the fire faded.[1]
*** The Soul of Cinder is a deific manifestation of the previous Lords of Cinder.
