For shields, see Shields.

Weapons are a vital type of equipment in Demon's Souls.

Weapons include any objects wielded in the right or left hand and utilized in combat, including Shields. Whichever weapon is in the right hand is used to attack, while the weapon in the left hand is usually utilized to block or parry, although can be used to attack.

Despite this conglomeration, traditional weapons such as swords invariably have high attack power and low defense power, while shields are invariably the other way around. If a sword is placed in the left hand for example, and used to block, only its damage resistance and stability affect its blocking effectiveness. Also a weapon can either block or parry when equipped in the left hand but not both at the same time, for example the Parrying Dagger can only parry, not block. Different weapons have different movesets depending on which hand they are equipped in.

All weapons have a weapon type that aid the player in determining the basic functionality of that weapon. Weapons of the same weapon type have similar movesets and usually inflict the same type of damage.
