For the Dark Souls variant, see Silver Knight.

Silver Knights are enemies in Dark Souls III.


These ancient knights that served the royal family of the gods guards the ruins of Anor Londo's cathedral and the humble manor inside Irithyll of the Boreal Valley under Dark Sun Gwyndolin's command[1].


Irithyll of the Boreal Valley

Anor Londo

  • Two knights are encountered on the great stairway as one ascends from the Anor Londo bonfire toward the cathedral.
  • A red-eyed knight can be found patrolling the area on the right of the cathedral's main entrance.


The Silver Knights within this game are much more powerful than their Dark Souls counterparts. For example, their Dragonslayer Arrows travel much faster than before, and they also attack much faster, utilizing their weapon arts. Therefore, the knights must be treated with great care, blocking is advised, but rolling away from their attacks is better.




  • The first Silver Knight the player meets in the gallery is actually observing a portrait of Gwynevere.
  • Silver Knight Weapons are unobtainable to the player in Dark Souls III.
