The Tomb Guardian is an enemy encountered in Chalice Dungeons.


  • Parrying is effective, but at least some knowledge of the guardian's moveset is suggested.
  • Dodging attacks by moving behind him is a good strategy, but this can be lethal in some instances.
  • The variant armed with crossbow will switch between sword and crossbow depending on the player's distance.
  • They are weak to arcane.
  • They're generally quite slow and predictable but they require heavy attacks to stun.
  • Morning star weilding variants once at 50 percent HP will dash backwards and roar becoming more aggressive and dealing increased damage.

      The flail wielding ones do very little damage if you're practically hugging them. You can rally most of the damage theu do easily.

        These enemies are very cool looking, kind of remind me of the Abyss Watchers with how they drag their greatswords around

          What's the lore behind them? Are they Pthumerian knights? Maybe just Pthumerians who played too much Dark Souls?

            I always have the urge to whip out my Holy Moonlight Sword for these guys--just the standard form. It's fun to break up the pacing and have a good old-fashioned Dark Souls -style brawl. If only they didn't die so quickly...

              For some reason, these guys seem to have a major weakness for poison. I came across one of these once, and I managed to poison it with one knife; and it dies with around 3 knives.

                Wielding a Gut's like Great Sword and doing some sick moves. The one where he drags it across the floor is one of the deadliest, hardest to dodge moves in the game. Long delay, can hit tou anywhere from start to finish, perfect incredible 360 dg. tracking on the very final slam of the attack. MY advice, dash back whenever he starts.. don't dash/roll into him! One of the coolest most forimdable foes in the game.
