How to Beat Tower Knight in Demon’s Souls

You can easily beat Tower Knight by attacking at its ankles. After you deal enough damage to them both, it will fall on its back, this is when you attack its head. Depending on your character level and the weapon you use you should be able to beat the Tower Knight in just one or two cycles of attacking its ankles and head. Here is how you need to fight this boss:

  • Start by eliminating the Archers: This fight is only difficult because you also have to deal with all the archers attacking you while you fight. Ignore Tower Knight completely and go up the stairs. Eliminate each archer one by one. Also, wait behind walls after killing each archer as Tower Knight launches a magic projectile. Eliminate all of them and then go down to fight the main boss.

When fighting Tower Knight you need an opportunity for when it tries to attack you. This is when you get behind it and under its legs. This will force the Tower Knight to use the following moves

  • Shield Smack: There are two variants of this attack. One where the boss slams it vertically and the other where it smacks the shield horizontally. Both of these moves have an Area of Effect damage. But the horizontal slam covers a bigger area. So make sure you back off when you see it start to raise its shield.
  • Foot Stomp: Now that you are around its feet trying to slash its ankles. This boss will try to stomp you flat. You can easily dodge that by rolling or running away.
  • Backward jump: If you are behind it for a long time. Then the Tower Knight will jump back. But it isn’t a very high jump. So you can get hit while it jumps to get away from you.

Chip away its health from both its ankles, and after you do enough damage the Tower Knight will fall on its back. When you see it is about to fall run diagonally away to either side. Do remember you can get hit by its huge armor so make sure you get away on time.

Now once it has fallen down all you need to do is come back and lock on to its head. Now unleash all your attacks at its head to deal it massive damage. Keep repeating these steps and you will beat it in no time.

A tip here to speed things up would be to hold your weapon with both hands. This allows you to do extra damage. The reason I suggest this tip is that you won’t be using your shield for most of this fight. Especially if you are going to follow the technique given above. Also, this strategy is mainly for Melee characters so if you use a ranged character that uses physical or any type of magic damage. Then you can also try aiming directly for its head.
