The Merciless Watcher is a Chalice Dungeon enemy and Boss in Bloodborne. The boss can be found in the Pthumerian Labyrinth (Pthumeru Chalice), and drops the Pthumeru Root Chalice when killed.


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. The other Merciless Watcher uses a Hunter Blunderbuss at ranged distance and a Lantern when in melee range. 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 Hunter Blunderbuss 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 can also be encountered as regular enemies, often guarding treasure chests and levers.
