Notes & Trivia
- Likely to be successors of the Serpent-Men of King's Field and Souls series.
- The Man-Serpents of Dark Souls were likely inspired by the Berserk manga (read more).
- The Ancient Dragon Greatshield conveys that Man-Serpents are the descendants of ancient dragons. Perhaps the true form these possibly former humans sought was dragon. as they populate archdragon peak and breathe fire. All they lack are wings, and maybe horns for style.
- You can farm large titanite shards. Larger snakemen may drop titanite chunks sometimes.
- They drop lightning gems sometimes.
