The Wretch is an Enemy in Dark Souls 3.
Appears in the Irithyll Dungeon.

 

Enemy Description

  • Appears to be a large, sickly pale amalgamation of different creatures.
  • Features a large, gaunt, quadrupedal body with a humanoid head, webbed digits and undeveloped wings.

 

Combat Information

  • Uses Elemental Attacks (Magic) and can deal heavy Durability damage to your equipment.
  • They’re easy to kill when alone. Wretches don’t move quickly, so it’s wise to rush them, attack, and score a fast kill before they can do anything.
  • Against groups, rush in and kill one Wretch. Then, back off, get Stamina, and fight whichever Wretch is the most aggressive about reaching you.
  • Can be Rapported?

 

Notes & Trivia

  • The first one you encounter seems to be a non-hostile prisoner, gripping a wall.

      Can anyone confirm if they actually drop titanite scales?

      I've killed about 50 of them by now with 361 item discovery and haven't gotten a single one.

      No other wiki or source can confirm that either.

        What's the lore behind those? Did they got experimented on, are they some freak accident or are they a result of the pontif eyes corruption, probably like the Sullyvahn Beasts or those dogs with human heads?

          The screaming one in the dungeon is so annoying, it makes me wish for the DS2 mechanic where monsters would stop spawning

            When I first entered Irithyll Dungeon, I already felt creepy. Then, when I fell down and everything went wrong, I just wanted to run from Jailers because I just noticed my HP go nonexistent. And then I accidentally ran into a cell with this guy crawling up the wall, his babyface right into the camera, and Jailers running right after me with their chuckles... I swear to god, I've probably never ever been so scared in a Souls game.

              Ok, been farming the Three at the base of the dungeon for hours to get their dagger. Not a single drop, not even Pine resine.

                In case anyone was wondering, I think I figured out what these things are. They look very similar to statues found in the Cathedral of the Deep, especially their face. Some of these statues have wings, but others have small nubs hidden beneath a robe, which looks identical to the Wretch's wings. The Wretches use sorcery and are related to dragons, and the Pilgrims of the Cathedral also use sorcery and supposedly turn into the Pilgrim Butterflies above Lothric Castle (also called Undead Dragons in some guides.)<br/><br/>There's a lot of connections but I don't know what they mean. I think these guys were clerics of the Way of White who became failed dragonkin experiments and tossed into the dungeons when Aldrich/Sulyvahn had no more use for them. Perhaps they were a part of Oceiros's attempt at making the perfect heir, or perhaps it was their attempt at escaping the Deep that consumed the other clerics. Not sure, but I'm convinced they're related.
