Reversal Ring is a Ring in Dark Souls 3.

Reversal Ring


A divine ring granted to the Darkmoon Gwyndolin in his youth.

Causes males to perform female actions, and vice-versa.

Gwyndolin was raised like a daughter through the aura of the moon, and was said to behave like a sullen brooding goddess.

 

Reversal Ring Effect

  • Causes males to perform female actions, and vice-versa.
  • Weight: 0.5

 

Where to Find Reversal Ring

  • Found in the Darkmoon Tomb in Anor Londo, in a hidden chest to the right of the large coffin altar.

 

Effects

  • When wearing this ring, the players stance and walk/run animations changes to that of the opposite gender.
    • Male stance being slightly wider and female stance being thinner
    • Male walk/run animation being more stiff and female walk/run animation having more swagger/swing
  • Does not affect the player's voice when taking damage or performing gestures.
  • Example image of the stance difference between male and female when wearing the ring:

    Demonstrating the difference between male and female stance.

 

Trivia

  • This is a reference to the child of Lord Gwyn from the first Dark Souls game, as Dark Sun Gwyndolin was born a boy but raised as a girl and was encountered in the Darkmoon tomb where you find this ring.
  • This may also be a reference to how Anri of Astora's gender changes depending on the players gender, as the ring is found in the same chamber where one of Anri's story lines can end. Or it could symbolize being both male and female after getting "married", essentially absorbing Anri into yourself.
  • It has also been speculated that Anri has a female body regardless of your character's gender, and that this ring and the voice is the only difference between Anri's male and female character. Anri's marriage-prepared corpse looks distinctly female for both genders, but it's harder to tell if this is also true for the normal character since the armor mostly hides gender specific differences.

      This ring is nice for making me not look goofy as hell when I wear armor like the Sunless set or the Dancer's armor, but I wish it didn't have to be a ring that sacrifices one of four slots I could use for stats improvements...

          I stare at the coffin, the room where I once felt hope.

          Now...now, I only feel sorrow.

          But, I know that my--our--duty as Unkindled is to fix this mess that has become our world.
          But...even we cannot stop the flow of time.

            It would be cool if the ring also changed the player character's voice.

            I like making cosplay characters and would like to make a lothric/lorian greatsword build that would also function for a Dancer cosplay (my pyromancer chick does ok, but not optimally).

            With this ring I could do both characters in one except for all the grunting and death shouts being awkwardly missgendered (I havent tried it yet so it may switch voices too, though).

              Not sure if this is a reference but this ring is similar in desing to the wedding ring of death used by Wamuu in jojo's bizarre adventure in Battle Tendency arc. The effect is nowhere near the same but the design is very similar.
              Here's link for anyone who wants to find out more about the ring in jojo: http://jojo.wikia.com/wiki/Wedding_Ring_of_Death

                I find this ring most useful when I'm playing one gender but want to cosplay a character of the opposite one properly

                  Also it could be about the coffin from Dark Souls 2 that let you swap genders for free whenever you wanted. This should have been a thing for Dark Souls 3; you make male & female faces for your character, and whatever gender you choose, you get the face you set for the other fender when you switch.

                      The biggest change isn't listed01 Jun 2016 19:03  

                      The difference in stance and walking or running is very small, but the biggest change is the kicking animation. Males have an awkward low-kick they do sideways, and females have a real front crane kick, more elegant.

                        Has ANYBODY tried keeping the ring on for a specific amount of time or a certain number of bosses. Would it be crazy to think that perhaps u can change into the opposite gender after a certain amount of time or bosses. Gwyndolin has tits in Dark souls 1 (confirmed by Vaati) so did the ring of reversal that he wore do this? Over-time changes have been a thing before (Time needed to become a full egghead). This game is essentially a direct predecessor to the ways of Dark Souls 1 (save Poise). For these reasons I don't think it to be to far-fetched of a theory. (Somebody do this for me,I have Finals ;))

                          I think the ring is absolutely pointless, which is basically the point fromsoft is making I believe. Doesn't matter whether you are male or female, you can perform precisely the same actions.
