The Forgotten Madman is a Chalice Dungeon Boss in Bloodborne.


The Forgotten Madman is a former member of the Healing Church that has been driven insane in the Hintertomb Labyrinth. He wears the Madman's attire and wields Ludwig's Holy Blade and Ludwig's Rifle. He is also capable of casting A Call Beyond and Augur of Ebrietas.

During the battle, another warrior wielding a Kirkhammer and Flamesprayer will arrive to support him. This enemy is listed as the Madman's Escort.


The Forgotten Madman fights alone at the beginning of the fight so use the opportunity to inflict as much damage as possible. Whilst his attacks can be quite aggressive, it's easy to trap him in a corner and keep him stunned with rapid swings. It's recommended to keep him at close range as much as possible so that he cannot fire his rifle or use Augur of Ebrietas.

When the Madman's health is below 50%, the Madman's Escort will enter the fight. The player should eliminate the first opponent as quickly as possible before the second enemy gets too close, the two bosses will attempt to gang up on the player otherwise. The pillars in the room can be use to block attacks and separate the opponents. Once the Madman falls, the Escort can be finished off relatively easily, provided the player doesn't get reckless.



  • Both Madmen have a faint bluish skin color, reminiscent of the local Pthumerians.
  • Both Madmen are obviously members of the Healing Church as they use Ludwig's Holy Blade, Ludwig's Rifle, the Kirkhammer, the Rosmarinus, the Empty Phantasm Shell and the Augur of Ebrietas, all high ranking gear used by the elite of the Healing Church, their attire also clearly mentions their ranks. Specifically, that they were once Tomb Prospectors that went mad with the knowledge within the dungeons.
  • The Madman's Escort will mockingly use the Applause gesture when the player dies.
  • Their attire are made covered with some kind of Invertebrates shells . Maybe they caught the phantasm they found in the tomb.
