Elden Ring’s Most Disturbing Monsters

Ring of Elden has a long list of monsters, from giant bears to ulcerated tree spirits. The lands between is host to all kinds of hostile creatures, be they animal, human or undead. However, what fans tend to remember the most are the monsters that bother, and there are a lot of them.

The disturbing monsters of Ring of Elden are found everywhere, not just in dark, dark places. While many are disturbing based on the design, from the visuals to the sounds they make, there’s also the heavy lore behind some of them. Many are commonly found, while others have the distinction of a boss health bar.

Wormface and Fingercreepers

Wormface is a boss that can be found near a Erdtree Minor in the Altus plateau. He is humanoid and masked, and his ominous trait is his namesake: his head is made of worms. It’s not the only one of its kind, there are lesser worm faces that can be found in both the Altus Plateau and the Crumbling Farum Azula. The tradition about them is still unknown.

Creepers are very common enemies in the Lands Between, found at Caria Mansion, Mt. Glemir, the sewers of the royal capital of Leyndell, the peaks of the giants and around Liurnia of the lakes. They are not only disturbing because they are disembodied hands, but they are malformed and move like spiders. They also hunt prey by leaping from above or luring someone into their palm under the ground.

Grave guard dogs and grafted scions

Grave guard dogs are found in many catacombs around the Midlands, and they possess faces that look like something out of a nightmare with sunken eyes, bat ears, and crooked teeth. The way they move isn’t a comfort either, with their attacks being quick and jerky while they can float or walk on two legs. Many fans have called him one of the scariest bosses in the game.

The tutorial boss is also one of the more disturbing creatures, as it is a pure product of body horror. It’s like Godrick the transplant but scarier due to its spider-like way of walking. Game modder and dataminer Zullie the Witch even took off the cape to see what was underneath only to find the grafted Scion grafted ribcages on top of his collection of arms.

The Godskins and Rennala Students

There are different types of Godskins, from nobles to apostles, but they all have the same disturbing thing in common: wearing clothes made of human skin. If examined, it is easy to see that their capes still have full faces. They bother much like the grafted scion, except they have deformed skin instead of limbs. According to lore, these enemies were once left by the dark-eyed queen to slay gods before she was defeated by Maliketh.

Rennala students, on the other hand, do not have skin capes or extra limbs, but their behavior is often considered the most disturbing. Their introduction is very memorable, with them all holding candles, smiling, laughing, singing, and crawling on the library floor. They’re pretty easy to kill, but that doesn’t make them any less scary.

Giant Dogs and Iron Maidens

The giant dogs have been dubbed “T-Rex dogs” by players due to their odd body shape. Their front legs are very small, while their hind legs are huge. They can be found all over Caelid as well as on Giants Peaks and Dragonbarrow. Although their design is fearsome, they are also fast and powerful enemies comparable to the Caelid Crows. and runic bears.

Iron Maidens are monstrous death machines that can be found in Caelid, Volcano Mansion, Caria Manor, Mt. Gelmir and Raya Lucaria Academy. According to tradition, they were originally made at Volcano Manor in the likeness of Tanith. Their designs aren’t the most disturbing thing about them, it’s their grab attack. If they manage to grab a victim and pull them into their built-in cage, the victim is usually killed by spikes like an Iron Maiden torture device.

Royal Revenants and Rykard

Royal Revenants can be found in the ruins of Kingsrealm and Liurnia of the Lakes. They look quite similar to grafted scion, as they have a collection of human limbs but now look even more like spiders. Their faces are terrifying, as if paralyzed in the middle of a scream, and their attacks are also fast and aggressive.

Rykard is a nightmare for anyone afraid of snakes. The portraits around Volcano Manor are all that remains of his human appearance. He sacrificed himself to be one with the serpent devouring god. The snake now has Rykard’s face under its neck, and it seems to not even notice the player until it beats the snake – as if sleeping soundly while the snake controls. He also keeps a sword covered in worm-like veins inside the serpent.

The giant crows and the inhabitants of Windmill Village

Giant crows are very similar to giant dogs, also found in Caelid. They can also be found on top of the Giant Mountains and at Mohgqyn Palace. They are also deformed like dogs, with an oversized beak that has rows of sharp shark-like teeth and undersized wings. They are powerful and intelligent enemies, and they even sometimes feign stagger to lure players into a grab attack.

Then there are the women of Windmill Village. Fans are still piecing together their story, but even without it, they’re incredibly creepy. These blood-soaked elderly women dance and seem to be celebrating. A nearby ghost cowers and begs them not to take his skin. They aren’t always hostile, but when they are, they turn demonic with glowing red eyes.

Ring of Elden is now available for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.
