* VideoGameCaringPotential:
** Yes, the co-op focused Covenants give you rewards if you follow through on their missions, but many players enjoy co-op simply for its own sake, helping other players who are in trouble progress through the game or defending them from Invaders. It's not unknown to find players who identify themselves as Warriors of Sunlight, Darkmoon Blades, or Blue Sentinels because they agree with the Covenants' mission of improving the gameplay experience for others, not just for the rewards.
** Benevolent Invasions are rare, but documented. This happens when an Invader, whose job is generally to kill whomever they invade, instead drops useful items for their target before banishing themselves away. There is absolutely zero reward in-game for doing this... indeed it harms the player who does it, since the items they drop cannot ever be recovered.
** Quelaag's Sister, aka the Fair Lady, is an extremely sympathetic NPC. Despite her monstrous appearance, she's helpless, non-hostile, self-sacrificing, and in terrible pain. Pain that can be alleviated by giving her Humanity. There are records of players giving her ''thousands'' of Humanity items, despite the fact that actual rewards for doing so cease after 30, and cosmetic changes cease after 80.



* VideoGamePerversityPotential:
** The developers ''tried'' to limit this by requiring player-set messages to be assembled from a given list of words. Unfortunately, "need head" is a possible combination. Guess what message tends to pop up the most?
** "[[MostCommonSuperpower Amazing chest]]"

Added DiffLines:

* BossSubtitles: Downplayed and not shown as an introduction, but most bosses (and NPC invaders) who are established characters have a title added to their names atop their health bars. For example: Dragonslayer Ornstein; Mytha, the Baneful Queen; [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Aldrich, Devourer of Gods]].
** This also applies to various [[AllThereInTheManual formal names of NPCs]. Sometimes it's something as simple as their origin (eg. Oscar of Astora), but several more descriptive ones such as "Kingseeker Frampt" or "Big Hat Logan".
