Ghru Leaper is an Enemy in Dark Souls 3.

 

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, probably because of them being a spawn of Satan himself, especially the Leaper ones.

 

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.

 

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 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

                        I came back with a +9 weapon and Fire Enchant miracle just to***** on these *****ers out of pure spite. It took more than an hour before I felt I had enough.

                          I was about to comment that there is no way these things are canonically spawns of Satan, and that this article is misinforming. But then I remember fighting them. They definitely are.

                            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.
