A Carrion Crow is an enemy in Bloodborne.

Description

Carrion Crows are often found near corpses. They become so fat from their meals that they are unable to fly, forcing them to crawl along the ground. They are highly aggressive and are attracted to the scent of blood.

Carrion Crows in the realm of Nightmares, these crows have the heads of Rabid Dogs, but are otherwise identical in terms of behavior.

They are likely one of the most common enemies found in Bloodborne.

Locations

Strategy

Carrion Crows will either attack from the ground using their beaks, or leap into the air and attack with their claws or feet. They are mostly found on the ground, but will sometimes sit high up and wait to attack an enemy from above.

Carrion Crows can be defeated by a few melee attacks. However, they can be deadly when attacking in flocks or when larger enemies are around, as their attacks are able to stagger.

Notes

  • Though they are classified as Beasts, they are only "Animal-type" Beasts, and thus, are not affected by Serrated damage. They are only affected by Blood Gems that have "ATK vs beasts UP". They are still weak to fire.
  • It is one of the more common enemies in Bloodborne and can be found mostly in high places or hiding in vegetation.
  • They mostly drop Pebbles, but they can very rarely drop antidotes and Beast Blood Pellets, depending on the area and player discovery stat.

Trivia

  • There is a friendly Carrion Crow in Hemwick Charnel Lane, in the area with the lift shortcut, back to the lamp. Take the lift up and look to the left, there will be many crows trying to attack you. However, stay far and let them get to you, then kill the ones that tried to peck at you. The friendly crow doesn't move from his location so he will be in the exact place he was before.
  • The death cry of Carion Crows is identical to the death cry of Crow Demons from Dark Souls 1.
  • While the ones in the realm of Nightmares have rabid dog heads, the rabid dogs of the area have the heads of these crows.
