"One of the forbidden hunter tools made by Irreverent Izzy.

Borrow the strength of the terrible undead darkbeasts, if only for a moment, to blast surrounding foes back with the force of a roaring beast.

The indescribable sound is broadcast with the caster's own vocal cords, which begs the question, what terrible things lurk deep within the frames of men?"

Beast Roar Usage

  • When activated, it creates an area of effect shockwave that knocks back foes.
    • Deals no damage, but it can provide utility in combat.
    • The most common strategy it to employ this Hunter Tool as an anti-mob escape mechanism:
      • An example of this would be the spiders that spawn from Rom, the Vacuous Spider, or other such enemies that are numerous and swarm the player.
      • Note: Some enemy types are incredibly aggressive and can quickly recover to try and attack you once more.
  • If timed correctly, it will deflect projectiles:
    • It works against all known projectiles, both of physical and magical origins.
      • However, some projectiles that have homing capabilities (such as those summoned via the Executioner's Gloves) are cabable of reaquiring and striking their targets when deflected this way.




Player Notes

  • A popular use of this Hunter Tool is to activate it when you have expended all your stamina from hitting an opponent:
    • Since Beast Roar doesn't require stamina to activate, it can forcefully keep an opponent from retaliating against you while you're exhausted of stamina. This applies in both Player versus Player (PvP) and Player versus Environment (PvE) scenarios.
      • Against particular enemies such as the Keeper of the Old Lords, this can result in an uninterrupted chaining of attacks.
  • It primarily works against small and humanoid-sized opponents. Larger enemies are often unaffected by the roar.
    • As a result, it isn't an effective tool when dealing with larger enemies, such as most bosses.
  • Due to the low Arcane requirement, this Hunter Tool is considerably inexpensive to account for and use in many different builds.
    • It should be noted that the Beast Roar doesn't scale with any Attribute, including Arcane - despite requiring it.
    • It is unique in that it is one of four Hunter Tools in Bloodborne that doesn't have any scaling with Arcane.



  • The Beast's Embrace Caryll Rune grants Beast Claw users a special L2 "Feral Scream" ability that is similar to the Beast Roar, but has many differences in mechanics.
    • The Feral Scream ability instead boosts Beasthood. Both abilities can be employed to strengthen your combat potential.
    • Despite similar appearances, the Beast Roar sound is lower pitched and guttural growl, while the Feral Scream sound is a higher pitched, wailing scream.
