Although it is not designed as a horror game in any sense, elden ring it has its fair share of scary and unsettling moments. The most common of these is the stress and terror created by the game’s intense fights, but elden ring it also has some horror elements integrated into certain locations, enemies, and concepts.
For example, elden ringThe Dung Eater character from is one of the most horrible enemies and concepts in the game. The character’s intro, lore, and questline serve to tell a sickening story that left many players furious with the character and scared of the implications of it. While the game offers the option to carry out the will of the Dung Eater, many players chose to kill the monstrous NPC instead.
In the case of zones, Caelid is a festering wound of an area, filled with scarlet rot and mutated, hideous creatures, not to mention elden ringThe Starscourge Radahn boss that waits at the far end of the area for players to discover. However, perhaps none of the game’s areas are as terrifying as the gardens of Caria Manor, which are dark and filled with mist. As if the atmosphere of the area wasn’t enough, the area is teeming with one of the most terrifying enemies in the game: fingercreepers, more commonly known as spider hands.
While elden ringGodrick’s may have an inferiority complex, he can be sure fingercrepers are nightmarish beasts with zero qualms about their existence. They come in a small size and in a much bigger and scarier form. His attacks are fast and include a terrifying grapple attack that crushes the player with his many fingers. Perhaps the most terrifying aspect of these creatures, however, is that they can be found lurking underground, lying in wait for players like a trapdoor spider. Recently, Reddit user F_M119 was traveling in Azerbaijan and noticed a creepy sculpture that looked exactly like the hidden hands in Caria Manor.
F_M119 noted in their title that they couldn’t even get close to the sculpture due to memories of being snatched up and crushed to death by the hidden hands. These sentiments were echoed by Reddit users, with many making jokes about needing fire to deal with sculpture, as fingercreepers are very weak to fire damage. Other users joked about the fact that creepers often place their traps under items, further luring players to their deaths.
The sculpture feels perfect for elden ring, as it not only resembles vines, but is also centered around a tree, creating a seemingly perfect symbol for the game. Regardless, just like elden ringThe creepy Grafted Scion, fingercreepers, and sculpture give rise to nightmares for any player who has ever made it to the grounds of Caria Manor.
