The Merciless Watcher is a Chalice Dungeon enemy and Boss in Bloodborne.


Watchers are overweight, pudgy, extremely pale Pthumerias who wield a variety of weapons, ranging from firearms to heated blunt objects and lamps. They will sometimes be covering some area in cloth. Wrapped with chains for an unseen reason. Some watchers have face covering cloth and sometimes take the appearance of a hunting party.





This fight involves three enemies; two Merciless Watchers, and one Watcher Chieftain.

One of the Merciless Watchers wields a Cleaver, and mainly uses it to repeatedly jab the Hunter, but also uses a slashing attack. This Watcher can usually be distinguished by a cloth covering his face and will also chase the player down.. The other Merciless Watcher uses a Pistol Blunderbuss at shoots from a medium distance, attacking him up close causes him to use his Lantern. The Watcher Chieftain wields a curved-bone Club and a Lantern.

It is recommended to take out the melee enemies first, while taking cover from the other's Blunderbuss. The Watchers are very vulnerable to Visceral Attacks.

The Merciless Watcher employing the Bluderbuss can be attacked almost risk free as the shots from his firearm glance over the Hunter. After sustaining multiple hits from the Hunter, he will attempt to attack with his lantern. This should be ignored as the games "Regain" system will allow the player to recover any lost health provided you continue to attack.


  • Merciless Watchers are usually encountered as regular enemies, often guarding treasure chests and levers.
