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.

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 themselves 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.

* 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]]"

-> Out of your cell you ran and then YOU DIED.
-> You pause to catch your breath and die another gruesome death,
-> So now you creep around each corner terrified...
