Dark Souls Remastered Capra Demon Boss Walkthrough Guide

Bosses in Dark Souls Remastered are the cream on the challenging cake. Sure, fighting your way through a new area is no cakewalk, but it all builds towards beating the area boss.

Not only do these guys have an enormous health bar that you'll have to whittle down piece by piece, but they also deal insane damage. So much so that it's entirely possible you could get wiped out in a single hit.

They may even be surrounded by enemies from earlier in the level, or attack you as a duo. Just you wait until you face your first double boss – that will make everything you've faced up until that point easy by comparison.

In this guide, we're going to walk you through how to beat the Capra Demon, which would be a relatively easy boss if it wasn't for those dumb dogs.

How to beat the Capra Demon in Dark Souls Remastered

The Capra Demon isn't particularly difficult to beat – on its own. The main difficulty of this battle stems from the fact you have three undead dogs to contend with alongside the boss.

So your first order of business is to take them out. The best way to do this is to run past the demon on its left and up the stairs. This can buy you a bit of time to take out the dogs before the demon makes it up the stairs. If you kill them all, drop off the platform and put some distance between you and the demon before beginning the fight. If not, drop off and run back to the entrance, bringing the dogs with you. Kill them here before the demon reaches you.

The Capra Demon itself should be relatively easy once you've beat the dogs. Most of its attacks are relatively slow and don't deal an awful lot of damage. Provided you roll or block, you should take care of most of them with ease.

What you need to look out for is its jumping attack, as this can be devastating and take off a massive chunk of health in a single hit – even if you block! Look out for him going into a crouch, as that's the indicator he's about to jump. Wait for the leap, then roll right or left and wail on him.

He also does a swipe attack with both weapons which, while less lethal, still packs a punch. Dodge that, or block it if you really have to.

Other than that, just try and get behind the Capra Demon and hit him as soon as he's attacked. Try and dodge everything he throws at you, and make sure you get the heck out of the way of the jumping attack. Wear armour with the highest physical defence, and do the same for your shield.
