Mensis Cage is a Head Armor/Attire in Bloodborne. It is not a part of a set.

" The School of Mensis controls the Unseen Village.

This hexagonal iron cage suggests their strange ways. The cage is a device that restrains the will of the self, allowing one to see the profane world for what it is.

It also serves as an antenna that facilitates contact with the Great Ones of the dream.

But to an observer, the iron cage appears to be precisely what delivered them to their harrowing nightmare."

Mensis Cage Information

  • Besides Micholash, summonable npc Mensis Scholar Damian as well as several corpses in the nightmare of mensis and in the unseen village also wear this massive helm.




Player Notes

  • You look good pairing it with Amygdala arm and charred hunter armor or harrowed armor. Insane hunter look.
  • It's very strange.
  • Gives shorter hunters that much needed boost in height.
  • Not bad against Ludwig the holy blade, but harrowed hood is better.



  • "Mensis" is a Latin word for "month", possibly deriving from a proto-indo-european word for "moon, measure", as referring to the moons phases as a measure of time. "Menses", or "months" is also the origin of the word "menstruation", which was once associated with the phases of the moon.
  • "Mensis" is the genitive form of "mens", the Latin word for "mind" or "thought". The particular case translates as "of the mind" or "mind's". (Possibly a wordplay on both?)

      I invaded in nightmare frontier and the guy was invisible due the blue elixir, and with the mensis cage i was able to see him D: i don't know if you can see someone using the blue elixis even without the cage equipped.

        I was told a rumor that gherman has some in battle dialogue if you where the cage. I always just sold it immediately after obtaining it. So I don't know. Clarify please?

          If you let an Amygdala (only tested after killing Rom, the Vacuous Spider, with the Amygdala right before the door to Yahar'gul, Unseen Village. don't know, if its possible to do that before killing rom, in the Cathedral ward) catch you with the cage equipped, you will be teleported to the Lecture Building (1st floor) next a Lantern. But it seems impossible at this point to get to the 2nd floor. The door is blocked by Patches the Spider. The only way is to Nightmare Frontier. I don't know if its a shortcut for the game. sorry for my english, i am german :D maybe some one can write it in the wiki in proper english ;)
