For the Dark Souls II variant, see Soul of a Proud Knight (Dark Souls II).

The Soul of a Proud Knight is a consumable soul item in Dark Souls.

In-Game Description

Soul of a proud Undead knight who has long ago gone Hollow.
Use to acquire many souls.
Souls are the source of all life, and whether Undead, or even Hollow, one continues to seek them.

General informationEdit

Soul items are not lost upon death, so it is useful to keep some in case players lose their bloodstain but need some souls for leveling up or repairs. Souls of Proud Knights can be consumed for 2,000 souls. They can also be fed to Kingseeker Frampt, but as this grants less souls than simply consuming them, there is no good purpose for doing so.


Found on various corpses throughout Lordran.
