The Old Hero is a boss in Demon's Souls.


A towering hero of legend, brought to life by the Old One. It wields a massive curved sword made of quartz crystal.

The Hero is blind with his eyes either being covered or removed entirely. As a result he has difficulty searching for his opponent and can be seen feeling around with his left hand during the fight.

Like the Adjudicator and the shadow man on the archstone, the Old Hero does not have lips.


Using stealth-based tactics works well against this boss, as he cannot see properly and will not notice you behind him if you walk slowly. Be warned that attacking him will cause him to roar and charge toward you, so use a pillar as cover if possible. Using the Thief's Ring will make the fight almost trivial.


Trivia Edit

  • If you look at the wall above the archstone, you can see the Old Hero's body.
  • When attacking the Old Hero, the damage sound is more like soul leaking rather than physical bleeding
