The Labyrinth Madman is an enemy in Bloodborne.
Tall, thin, and aggressive Pthumerians, the Labyrinth Madmen are always twitching and shaking as they gently pat the weapons they wield. Their mouths are almost always wide open and a few chains wrap around their bodies, implying that they were restrained in some way at one point.
Labyrinth madmen come in three variations:
- Dual Sickle-wielder
Each of them are incredibly aggressive and fast, but while both sickle variants focus on long combos, the Corpse-wielder will deal tremendous amounts of damage with a single hit, and will deal Rapid Poison as an added effect.
Labyrinth Madmen are incredibly aggressive and dangerous enemies, able to cross great distances in a short span of time, as well as inflict massive damage. It is not recommended to attack them head on, as their, speed, aggression, and high damage make it very dangerous to do so. This makes visceral attacks a good way to deal with them, albeit a risky one.
A much safer strategy (but one that can not always be done based on where the madman is located) is to sneak up on them from behind, preform a fully charged heavy attack, and then preform a visceral attack.
- They can be heard from across many rooms due to their constant shrieking and moaning. This becomes especially true when they are alerted to a player's position.
