Hunter's Mark is a consumable Item in Bloodborne.

hunters_mark.jpg "Dangling, upside-down rune etched in one's mind.

Symbol of a hunter.

By focusing one's thoughts on this rune, a hunter loses all Blood Echoes, but awakens afresh, as if it were all just a bad dream."

Hunter's Mark Usage

  • Used to reawaken, at the expense of your held Blood Echoes. This does not leave a bloodstain to pick up

Hunter's Mark Location

  • Available from game start.


  • You only lose the blood echoes currently held by the character. An unretreived bloodstain from the last death is not affected.
  • Same effect as the Bold Hunter's Mark, apart from the blood echoes lost.
  • Bloodborne's version of Nexial Binding / Darksign.


  • Resembles the Brand of Sacrifice from the Berserk manga series.

      Played through all of the first area on a new character once before going to the dream, cleric beast, all shortcuts and dialogue. Had 9,000 echoes and was ready to cash in so I used the hunter mark. This one, instead of the bold marks Eileen gave me... take care in using whatever you see in your inventory first lol.

        I’m guessing that this is for if you’re about to die on the way to your lost runes? Played through the game with 7 different builds. Never once used this.

            It's a dead hunter hanging upside down with the head cut off because the "beast blood" Goes to the head, sending one mad. The black church "garb" (or garb wearers) in the game was to cleanse the virus before one would become a beast.

              It is "dangling upside down" it is literally an upside down Tolkien rune that I can not find out what it represents I think it is to do with hunting but not sure.

                Did anyone think hangman when they saw this? Pretty sure the sign is to look like that of a hanging man. If you've noticed, in the chalice dungeons, there are a bunch of corpses hanging in the form of the the sign from the ceilings of the dungeons. This may mean that the hunters have existed long before the city of Yharnam, in the time of Loran and Pthumeria
