Longfinger Kirk is a NPC in Dark Souls 3.

Longfinger Kirk Information

  • Killable.
  • Invades in Cathedral of the Deep, right as you reach the lower area with water and the giants.
  • Cannot be summoned.



  • You can find Longfinger Kirk at Cathedral of the Deep as an Invader on the ground floor, between the two giants, if the player is in ember form. The Deacons of the Deep must still be alive for him to invade.
  • Corpse can be found in Rosarias Bedchamber, where you can recieve the Set of Thorns, after he is killed.


Combat Information

  • It's best to not underestimate him for he does hit very hard.
  • Rarely heals himself.
  • Wields: Barbed Straight Sword (RH) and Spiked Shield (LH).
  • He will use his sword's skill, Stance, at times to try to break your guard so it's best to back away when he does this and strike at the end when he's open.
  • His sword has a bleed effect so enough successive strikes will cause the player to bleed and take additional damage.
  • His armor set causes damage, ableit a small amount, when coming into direct contact with him as he's rolling.






  • Longfinger Kirk is very similar to Knight Kirk from Dark Souls 1. They are both part of an invasion covenant, and share the same armor and name. (His name "Longfinger" might be referring to him being the Middle finger of Rosaria, which is the longest finger. Ringfinger Leonhard is the Ringfinger, so the short finger and index finger are not named. Possibly could be the player.)
  • Longfinger (or middle finger) can also be a metaphor for a popular insulting gesture. In some parts of the world, the expression "long fingered" has the same meaning as having sticky fingers.
  • It is quite possible that he takes here the same role as in DS I where he was invading others to collect Humanity for The Fair Lady, only here he collects embers or pale tongues for Rosaria, Mother of Rebirth. Even his armour set appears in room where his mistress dwells as in the first game.

      Fun fact: if you have the "Ashes of Ariandel" DLC you can talk to Gael and enter the Painted World, this will cause Kirk to return home. This works as a fail-safe in case he either overwhelms you or if you feel that you aren't strong enough to take him on. He will invade again after re-entering the area. I do not think this works on players, as it didn't work with the Giant Trees in DS2.

        When Longfinger killed me I lost my souls, unrecoverable, and they weren't already on the ground. I think it was a bug but it still sucked.

          WTF!!! he just invaded me in roads of sacrifice/Crucifixion Woods

          definitely darkspirit long finger kirk - had the full armor set sheild and sword - was not a player def AI

          I was up near crystal sage entrance path and then my white soap stone went grey, then farmed a bit and headed back to bonfire. He came at me near the Crucifixion Woods bonfire.

          I even saved a clip to my xbox

          got to be a bug right?

          my setup: sl20, blue sentinels cov, crystal sage still alive, both npc near farron entrance still alive, i summoned hodrick and he died to area monsters

              Invaded a player as a finger of rosaria. despite this, kirk attacked me while there were no giant seeds activated. so i guess he attacks invaders. wonder if this is true for any other npc invaders

                Fun fact: The word finger is censored to other players. If you recreate a character with his exact name it will show up as Long****** Kirk to others.

                  Comparing the trivia of yellowfinger who turns to a slug after you defeat him.
                  Longfinger should be the one you get the red sign soapstone from and that would also explain how his armor is found there just like heysel

                    Don't kill the Giants, after you defeat the first mace knight be sure to be embered then head left then after you go out of the stairs head a little bit to the right, don't go to the field with the giants just head right, he will invade you Online or Offline doesn't matter, (will not invade if you already killed the deacons)

                      He did not spawn, this time around. Which is kinda weird to me, because neither Heysel invaded me. No invasions at all. Yes, I'm following Yuria's and Sirris' questlines, ok, but with a precedent character I did so as well and he spawned. The only thing I made differently, this time, is that I killed the darkwraith in High Wall of Lothric after I unlocked the bonfire next to the Abysswatchers (the one near the couple of Darkwraith outside the boss room, where the Londor Pale Shade's summon sign is located). Could it be because of this, perhaps?

                        i killed the 1st giant up on the high path and had to use a bonfire afterwards before going down on the ground. not just that the giants loot gone missing but i didnt get invaded either.

                          Longfinger meaning middle finger most likely, describes your reaction to almost killing him then dying well

                              Only spawns in online mode07 Aug 2016 13:15  

                              I can confirm he only spawns in online mode. I tried to kill him the last few days and he never showed, no matter which character or how many bosses I killed. I finally just connected my PC to the Internet over my phone just to try it out. My character started right in front of kirk, and he instantly spawned

                                I'm embered, haven't killed Deacons, have explored the entire area, and, as suggested, met Rosaria. Please help me. I've gone as far as I can without killing Deacons now, and every time I return, he never shows up. If it helps, this is NG+. I did offer pale tongues to Rosaria to further an NPC questline in the previous playthrough. I'm also playing offline to prevent other people invading, but I went to a previous area and was invaded immediately by an NPC. Thanks in advance.

                                  He invaded in cathedral and I was out of estus, luckily I was able to kill him because I found a spot in the room before the stairs that lead to the giant room where he would just walk up and down the stairs occasionally attacking the air and I was able to shoot him with arrows when he walked through the doorway.

                                    Kirk will invade after killking boss14 May 2016 16:32  

                                    First I killed the boss, enter the next location and then go back and Kirk invaded me, so do not listen to the guys below. Kirk will invade, it's just harder.
