** An odd mix of this and FriendlyFandoms with ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda''. With many longtime ''Zelda'' fans being disillusioned with the series for moving towards linearity, greater focus on story, and lowered difficulty, many of them came to ''Dark Souls'' for an more [[WideOpenSandbox open]] experience with little handholding, a more subtle and mysterious story, more complex and difficult combat. As such, it isn't uncommon for many classic ''Zelda'' fans to name ''Dark Souls'' as "what ''Zelda'' should be."

* BrokenBase: Games from this series no longer seem so memetic difficult, when you realize that every boss can easily be defeated, if you studied the original approach to each of them.

* BrokenBase: Games from this It's not a very good idea to start an argument over which game in the series no longer seem so memetic difficult, when you realize that every boss is the best. All 3 games have their supporters, and arguments between them can easily be defeated, if you studied the original approach to each of them.get quite heated.

* FriendlyFandoms: With ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'', due to the huge influence the manga has had on ''Dark Souls'', whose fans are the developers of the series. The fans are also quite friendly to ''LightNovel/ReZero'', becouse the anime adaptation of the latter was found as a fairly interesting SpiritualAdaptation of the series with it's idea of returning back after death.

* Expy: Has many, many similarities to the Dying Earth Series of novels by Jack Vance. This includes the fact that the Earth is dying, with the sun slowly fading to black, the medieval Europe setting and technology, and Dark Souls 1 and 2 even uses Vancian magic structure invented in that series.

Added DiffLines:

* HilariousInHindsight: Souls love Gothic and Romanesque architecture in all its manifestations so much that any appearance of them after games will cause you to have a strong association with games.

* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy: Intentionally and the authors are proud of this, making each part of the series and side stories as depressing and sad as possible. Fans even called the second game less atmospheric and enchanting, since its plot seemed less oppressive to them.
