The Baby’s Nail is a dagger in Demon's Souls.

Description Edit

In-Game Description

A dagger coated with plague. The blade is curved like a talon.
Often used by woman and children for assassination. Among the various unique weapons, this one is especially sinister.



The Baby's Nail is the only weapon in the game capable of inflicting Plague on enemies. This, combined with its fast attack speed and effectively non-existent stat requirements, makes it relatively effective against NPCs, who rarely have significant Plague resistance. Many enemies that can be poisoned can also contract the Plague.
