Demon Prince

The Demon Prince is the final phase of the boss fight with the Demon in Pain and the Demon from Below and is in the same location as the aforementioned boss.

  • Attacks
    • Fireball – The boss jumps up and throws a fireball at the player from his right hand.
    • Fiery Swoop – The Demon Prince flies upwards, then swoops down and slashes at the ground.
    • Floating Chaos – Similar to the attack of the same name in the Demon in Pain and the Demon from Below fight. It casts a more powerful version of Floating Chaos at the player and usually leads to a Fireball Shower. This attack is only possible when the boss has been revived from the red Demon from Below.
    • Fireball Shower – Usually cast as a following attack to floating chaos, the boss shoots fireballs in the area where the player was at the beginning of the spell. This is usually a good time to get hits in, but make sure to move out of the way once the boss begins flaring after casting the spell.
    • Normal Moveset – Rarely, the boss will execute movesets from the previous fight with the Demon in Pain and the Demon from Below.
    • Laser Beam – A laser beam the Prince sweeps left and right. Try to get behind the boss when this attack occurs to get in some damage. It usually leads into Laser Burst and can only be used if the boss is resurrected by the orange Demon in pain.
    • Laser Burst – A bean that damages on contact and leaves an area of effect around the Demon Prince’s head. Just navigate to the backside of the boss to deal damage and avoid this attack.
  • Stats
    • Can be parried.
    • Damage to the head can stagger him, leaving him open to critical strikes.
    • Weak to Dorhys’ Gnawing, but bleed weapons plus Carthus Rogue isn’t very effective against him.
    • Mostly resistant to magic.
    • Weapons Strong Against Him:
      • Black Knight Greatsword
      • Black Knight Sword
      • Black Knight Great Axe
      • Black Knight Glaive
  • Useful Information
    • The Demon Prince’s Moveset depends on which demon (Demon in Pain and the Demon from Below) is killed first.
