The games take place in a DarkFantasy world, where humans coexists with giants, dragons, gods, monsters, and "[[TheUndead Undead]]", humans marked with a [[MarkOfTheBeast cursed brand]] that grants them ResurrectiveImmortality, but slowly leeches their body and mind till they're a SoullessShell. In each game, you take the role of one of these Undead, who finds himself swept up in a quest to rekindle the flame that keeps the world alight, and hold off the coming age of darkness... that is unless you choose to usher in that age yourself.

* {{Griefer}}: Welcome to Griefer Heaven! One of the more insidious methods is invading someone's game and starting a fight near [=NPC=]s. You can't attack or interact with them, but you can trick the other player into aggroing or killing characters with an errant weapon swing. ''You can trick another player into losing stuff forever''.

Added DiffLines:

* PressXToDie: Using the Darksign "kills" you, warping you back to the last bonfire. Unlike regular deaths, you don't leave behind a bloodstain, which means that all the souls you're currently carrying are lost forever. On the upside the Darksign doesn't Hollow you, and any souls and humanity left by a "regular" death are unaffected, meaning that [[NotCompletelyUseless you can use the Darksign to "reset" your attempts to reclaim those souls with no limitations, until you either succeed or die trying]].

Added DiffLines:

** The Dark Hand is a weapon that creates [[SomeKindOfForceField an energy shield]] that provides no [[http://darksouls.wikidot.com/deflection deflection]]...when used by the player. When the Darkwraiths in New Londo Ruins block with their own Dark Hand, they deflect any melee attack with ease.

Added DiffLines:

* DiscOneNuke: The [[{{BFS}} Drake Sword]] can be obtained very early in the game - [[GuideDangIt if you know how]] - and does disproportionately high damage for its level. As with everything in this game, though, there's a downside: it gets outclassed in the second half of the game, when the player has the stats to benefit from superior customized weapons.

** Some undead manage to [[AvertedTrope avert that]], most notably those residing in cells of Undead Asylum and upper New Londo. While obviously hollowed and insane, they're devoting their time to sobbing or [[HeadDesk headbanging nearest wall]], and pose no real threat to the player, unless he hits them first.
