  • Dummied Out:
    • Several boss weapons and armours:
      • The Ancient Dragon Halberd
      • Lothric's Scythe, which was replaced by the two swords.
      • The Hammer of the Great Tree, which would have been created using the Curse-rotted Greatwood's soul.
      • The Giant's Set, which was worn by Yhorm the Giant.
      • The Frigid Valley Mask, worn by Vordt.
    • Enemy and NPC armor sets, including some from the first two games:
      • The Footman set, worn by the jug-holding, cage-wearing undead with boards across their backs.
      • The Saint's set, worn by Yorshka.
      • The Man Serpent set, worn by the Serpent-Man Summoners of Archdragon Peak.
      • The Dingy Hood, which is actually the mask worn by the Firekeeper.
      • The Varangian Set from Dark Souls II.
      • The Hexer's Set, also from Dark Souls II.
      • The Golden Dual Swords - aka Gold Tracer and Dark Silver Tracer from Dark Souls: Artorias of the Abyss - even had a mostly-complete moveset.

    • A pendant similar to the Silver Pendant, which would have probably granted access to Farron Keep.
    • Gwyndolin's Finger, which would probably have been obtained by defeating Aldrich and would have prompted a now-cut line of dialogue from Yorshka.
    • Two boss souls - the Soul of a Wicked Spirit, the description of which invokes Ichorous Earth from Dark Souls II; and Soul of the Great Bat, the description of which indicates it would have been fought underground.
    • The Holy Remains, the skull-goblet oozing black smoke that is used to trigger Wolnir's boss fight.
    • The Spirit Amethyst, an online-play item.
    • There are audio files still in the data for the Oceiros fight that are...disturbing to say the least, implying that he killed Ocelotte himself.
    • The Prima Guide features the Pendant from the original Dark Souls as an item. The pendant was going to be in the game and files for it still exist, but it was ultimately cut.

  • Fandom Nod: A common trend among endgame builds is dual wielding Ultra Greatswords. That being said, the Weapon Arts for a couple of the Greatswords involve dual wielding Greatswords.
  • Fan Nickname:
    • Because his magic-imbued swords look like lightsabers, fans have taken to referring to Pontiff Sulyvahn as a Sith Lord. "Darth Sulyvous", if you would.
    • Members of the new Mound-Makers covenant are often referred to as "Purpals" by the community, due to the fact that their summon signs and phantom appearances are purple.
      • "Grapebros" are also another popular name for Mound-Makers, for similar reasons.
    • Naked Sephiroth, coined by Jesse Cox for the Beef Gate, Sword Master Saber, you run into if you take a detour when entering Firelink Shrine for the first time. This is because the dude's a Lightning Bruiser that only truly skilled gamers can take down when facing him right after the first boss.

    • Some players refer to Irithyll of the Boreal Valley as "Christmas in Yharnam".
    • In their LP, Super Best Friends refer to High Lord Wolnir as "Triple H", due to the latter's "King of Kings" gimmick, complete with a crown and a skeletal mask, and christen the Smouldering Lake "Ed Boon's backyard".
    • "Shirley" for the Shrine Handmaid, due to the Easterner's Ashes item description unintentionally setting up a reference to Airplane!
    • The Painter in Ariandel is sometimes called Aria, based on the naming scheme of the previous Painters (Ariamis and Ariandel).
  • Flip-Flop of God: Initially, Miyazaki said Dark Souls III would not be the last game, but mark a turning point in the Souls franchise. Later, he changed his mind and stated that it would be grand finale of the series.
  • God Never Said That: No, it wasn't Miyazaki who said poise was "Working As Intended", that was an unnamed Bandai Namco spokesperson.
  • The Wiki Rule: The Wikia Dark Souls Wiki, Fextralife Dark Souls 3 Wiki, and Wikidot Dark Souls 3 Wiki.
