Bleed is a status effect in Demon's Souls.

General Information[]

Bleed is caused by a multitude of weapons and enemies. Bleeding causes the victim to take small amounts of damage for a period of time. Players and NPCs that are bleeding will emit an audible heartbeat sound and intermittently shed a splash of blood (if the player has the Blood option set to "mild" or "on").


The following weapons can inflict bleed.


The following enemies can inflict bleed.


The following are ways to neutralize bleeding.

  • Characters with at least 15 Vitality can often wait for the effect to wear off (provided their HP was not particularly low when Bleed was inflicted) and heal to make up the lost HP.
