Wooden Scarecrow are enemies in Dark Souls, but are only found in the Artorias of the Abyss DLC.


They are the most common enemies in the Royal Wood, and are usually accompanied by other Scarecrows and a Guardian.


Wooden Scarecrows come in two variations, shirtless and those that wear tunics. They wield either a Four-Pronged Plow, or giant shears that inflict Bleed build up. They are quite fragile and have little to no Poise. Wooden Scarecrows are very vulnerable to fire damage.
