This also applies to enemies, some of whom are just not fun to fight. But not an enemy in totality elden ring drew as much hate as the Royal Revenants. Okay, maybe they’re related to Liurnia’s giant crabs – but those are far rarer in the game’s world.
The Royal Revenants are multilimbed, crowned centipede-like creatures. They are hated because they often surprise you by appearing out of nowhere, so you can’t exactly dodge them. They are difficult to stagger and seem to have infinite stamina; They’ll hit you with attack after attack with their flailing arms until you’re dead.
To make Revenants even more annoying, they have the ability to burrow into the ground and pop up behind you after they’ve finished their combo, which can sometimes cause you to accidentally attack other nearby enemies and unnecessarily a few Hit swallows try to reposition – not to mention it’s very difficult to escape.
No one feels sorry for the screaming Royal Revenants, but it turns out they may be in more pain than they cause. Souls modder, YouTuber and discoverer of all things weird in the world of FromSoft games – Zullie the Witch – released a video about these nightmarish creatures.
By removing her clothing, Zullie realized that her – let’s call it “anatomy” – differed from other grafted creatures in the Elden Ring, such as the Scions. Grafting is the process of mixing different parts of different creatures to create a single being, and is often portrayed as a crude process responsible for the birth of horrific misshapen creatures that fail to form the “perfect” shape intended for them to reach.
However, a Revenant’s body shows no signs of transplantation. There is a single set of legs, and despite the large number of arms attached to its body, they instead appear to have grown organically from the creature itself. However Revenants came about, their bodies are made up of multiple torsos, which Zullie likens to a forking tree trunk (another thematically appropriate image).
Interestingly, the Revenants’ AI is referred to in the game’s files as “HorriblenessGrub” (with an ID of C4020), suggesting that a more mature version (probably with an ID of C4030) was planned at some point. Since the latter ID goes unused, it may show up in a potential future Elden Ring DLC. It’s also likely that FromSoft spared us any other monstrosity that could have been a larger version of the Revenant.
Since this is probably the second time you’ve played through Elden Ring, you should consider trying new builds, e.g. B. the very popular bleed builds. If you missed something else, have our Elden Ring guide ready.
