Ghru Leaper is an Enemy in Dark Souls 3.

 

Ghru Leaper Enemy Description

  • The Leaper is the most dangerous of the melee Ghru's.
  • He attacks by jumping and by using deadly grabs that bypass blocks.
  • Ghru's are descendants of the Farron guardians. Some event, likely the presence of the abyss has turned them into goatlike demons.

 

Ghru Leaper Combat Information

  • The Ghru Leaper is fast and aggressive, and can move around both on two or on all four limbs.
  • Jumping gives the Leaper a great potential to dodge and counter.
  • Be careful when blocking, as the Leaper will often try to grab you, a move that ignores your shield.
  • Their jumping stomp attack can be blocked, but if unblocked will cause as much damage as the grab attack.
  • Sometimes the Leaper will pause and it will slowly walk towards you for a while.
  • It also has one or two claw attacks that can be parried.
  • One of the safest ways to deal with them is to dodge sideways, when they run up to grab you, and then punish them from behind.
  • After successfully performing a grab attack on the player, the Leaper will glow with a red aura for some time afterward. This is possibly a buff, needs confirmation.
  • Can be Rapported.
  • Unconfirmed whether luring works or not.

 

Ghru Leaper Notes & Trivia

  • Some can be standing, but some require a trigger to stand up.
  • Their appearance is similar to the mythological creature Baphomet.
  • Environmental fires will damage them noticeably, this can be used if you're low on HP but be aware that sometimes they will avoid the fires.

      I regret saying that hooves are cool, at this guys best he doesn't poison you, at his worst he's the worst chiropractor I've had the displeasure of meeting.

      In terms of his pet score, 0/10 Keep me away from him

        I want five minutes alone with whoever made the final decision to include these in the game.
        And in the goddamned SWAMP LEVEL of all places.

            I invaded as a farron watchdog, and somehow one of these guys started attacking me for no reason, so watch out

                  Fex wiki "lore" written by braindead morons yet again. "sOmE eVeNt LiKeLy tUrNeD tHeM iNtO gOatS bEcAuSe tHeY aRe LiNkEd tO sAtAn hiMseLf."



                  SATAN DOES NOT EXIST IN DARK SOULS YOU DUMB F*CK, are you the type of religious catholic smoothbrain who thinks everything is related to christianity? In dark souls lore chaos demons were born of the chaos flame, the soul of life, and they are literally just a new species that gwyn's gods hated and feared (because they fear literally anything that isn't born of the light soul) and sent black knights to literally eradicate them like the holocaust but worse. Keep your religious dogsh*t out of this, please.

                      I think these enemies are the only ones that genuinely scare the ever living hell out of me in the game. I am always nervous to engage these enemies.

                        These mother****ers killed me twice in the demon ruins by doing the brain suck attack 3 times in a row. That and the Irithyll enemies are the reason I'm probably quitting dark souls.

                          That jump or that grab needs to be patched the **** out. Front is Problematic enough with the constant invasions, slow walking & poison, these guys are just way to over powered for a trash mob

                            No enemy in the game i hate more. First i fought a darkwraith, then i walked all around in deep swamp for 5 min, then i fought the 5 basilisk and somehow survived (not easy when you are reduced to walking speed), as i was about to go up and deal with the second fire, this ****er jumped and one shooted me. Lost 14000 souls. Personly i prefer Blightown to Farron keep.

                              That slow walk is so damn infuriating. Let's say you don't want to deal with their BS grabs and jumps, this is the 3rd ****ing time you are going through satan's swamp ass, you barely manage to break aggro, now you gotta sit and ****ing wait for literally 10 MINUTES for the slow **** to waddle far enough away for you to slip pass without pissing it off.

                                This was the first Ghru I faced and after killing it I was scared **** less seeing so many Ghrus in the swamp. Didn't even think about engaging one and legit quit the game for 2 hrs only to find the truth from this wiki.

                                    i know this is dark souls,im okay with your stupid grab neck snap, but can you at least give me a second or two before you instantly grab me a second time the moment the stun ends

                                      Attack, jump, miss, attack again, jump, miss, proceed to do grab attack, dies to them. Have to equip and spam those ringed knight greatsword combo just to kill them the rest are just easy to deal bruh

                                            My god these crystal meth smoking mofos are are so annoying. They always seem to know exactly when to jump to avoid your attack. Also when they jump, you end up looking up your own ass crack cuz the camera decided to go scuba diving in the ground. And don't even get me started on hit boxes. They'll clearly miss then suddenly I'll teleport to them or they'll teleport to me.

                                                        The trick is to bait them into charging at you with their arms spread to grab you, then roll past them. They stumble afterwards, which gives you enough time to open up an R1 chain and hopefully get them to fuck off. I hated these enemies more than any other enemy in the game until I eventually ran into them enough to stop being retarded and figure out the bait.

These things remind me of the wendigo, a man that was forced out of starvation to eat human flesh, dead or alive. They are consumed by their hunger, and devour anything they can, human or otherwise.

                                                              I literally try my best to avoid these things.

                                                                Hey, remember that Capra Demon guy with the unblockable jump attack? I'm making my own Abyss versions of them.

                                                                • The description says "can be lured". I've seen how dangerous they are in multiple das3 playthroughs on youtube but if they can be lured by alluring skulls why doesn't anybody take advantage of that? My laptop can't run dark souls 3 so I can't test how effective alluring skulls are on them but dark souls 2 has trained me well to use alluring skulls on tough enemies (if they are affected by alluring skulls).

                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                    • Anonymous

Anyone knows if that is a buff or debuff for them (or just afterglow after having just faceraped another poor sod)? Never really waited to find out, just made goat kebobs outta them.

                                                                      • Anonymous

I have 45 vigor and these things still scare me witless. they're like if you took the torch hollows from Dark Souls 1, made them three times as big, gave them a lightning fast grab attack with no cooldown, and put them in the POISON SWAMP of all places. don't fight them. don't even think about them. equip a quickstep weapon and skip the entire *****ing swamp while you're at it.

Golem prisoners, corpse spiders, chitter beasts (ok these were a close second), I have to say that the Ghru Leapers are still the enemy type I'm most scared of in this game. ***** these things. Something about the way they move and stand is completely NOPE to me. Doesn't help that their attacks are pretty much one shots.
