False Eyes are eyelike structures found on enemies, blood, armor or within the environment.
Seeing False Eyes often requires looking at them from a certain angle or with extra lighting.

False Eyes are part of a grey area between Easter eggs and relevant lore.
All notes on False Eyes can be assigned to this page.

Though easy to miss, the whole game is teeming with them and they probably want you dead. Keep your eyes peeled.

Note! False eyelike structures can be found in nature as well Bacon Jupiter Girnar Hill, this is due to the human brain, which is always scanning the world for faces.
It can be difficult to discern intentional False Eyes from unintentional ones and I apologize in advance if any mistakes are made.

      This page shouldn't be linked anywhere but the theory page. Unfortunately it's liked everywhere. This wiki is a mess

        I won't deny the importance of eyes in this game, but this is stupid. Whoa, "false eyes" where the eyes of the characters should be. Whoa, a circle, it must be a false eye.

          Umm... what the Hell is supposed to be the significance of these "false eyes"? It seems more like a "false lore" situation. Am I right guys? ;)

            This is REALLY reaching guys. It's called pareidolia. Unless there are false eyes in real life too and we're all stuck in the Bloodborne universe. Random patterns which form "faces" in the human mind are not an easter egg or lore relevant. It's simply your brain doing it's job.

              Damn, they really need to put some warning screen in-game or something, forbidding mentally-susceptible to play it.
              Guy take this "omg lore, deep" thing to close and not only start imagining things and believing in what they've imagined, but also
              write Wiki-articles about this stuff. Creepy.

                Please be advised that we encourage speculation regarding to lore, but ask that speculative elements be kept separate from wiki pages as to not confuse newcomers. An individual new to the game may encounter False Eyes on an enemy, boss or armor page and assume it is an in game mechanic.The notes section is for descriptive and trivia like statements. Such as "Paarl is the dutch word for..." or "this enemy can not fire on you when in the sit gesture".

                  This whole article is ridiculous.05 Jul 2016 14:49  

                  Reading Too Deep: The Wiki Page. Seriously, some of these are really pathetic. Even the ones where eye-like shapes are immediately visible can be written off to random texture variations. Even admitting that it takes certain angles to see certain "false eyes" shows that this is speculative overreach. I mean look at the Master Willem picture. There is just nothing there. And no, a circular design in the texture does not mean they meant it to be a false eye or in any way relevant to the lore. Sometimes, a circle is just a circle.
