The Undead Giant is a Chalice Dungeon boss and enemy in Bloodborne. This boss will drop the Hintertomb Root Chalice after defeating it in the Hintertomb labyrinth.


The face of this miserable being reveals similarities with both Church Giants and Church Servants, suggesting that all these towering creatures belong to the same unholy kind; its face is the only clue about this connection because the rest of its body is twisted and rotten beyond recognition due to the crude surgery that grafted blades and firearms to its arms. The term "Undead" hints that some strange magic (namely the one that comes from the Great Ones) is the only force that keeps this behemoth alive.

The Undead Giant is a massive humanoid being that has weapons for hands. It has a large, fleshy lumps on specific parts of its body that, when attacked, will burst, causing massive damage to the giant. This may also stagger it for a short time, allowing for attacks on its head an a possible Visceral.

There are three different versions of this boss:

  • Dual Blade: This version has two large blades for hands. It is arguably the easiest.
  • Flaming Dual Blade: This version has two large, flaming blades for hands. It is the rarest variant and appear only in Oil Swamp. Its attack can ignite the oil around, dealing area damage.
  • Axe and Cannon: A second version has an axe attached to its right arm, and a cannon for the left. It is present in Chalice Dungeons as both a boss and enemy that players can find while exploring. Beware it's Cannon as it can frequently one-shot players.
  • Chain Giant: The last version has a club attached to its right arm, and a sword for the left. The large, fleshy lump is around the backside of its right leg, making it difficult to get to. It also has chains attached to its head, these will be stuck at the beggining of the fight, but once unstuck, they will make for a deadly weapon as the giant will flail them while attacking regularly. This version is without doubt the hardest due the damage of the chains.


The Undead Giant is weak against Fire and Bolt attacks.

When fighting this boss, attack once or twice, then move away. Using two-handed weapons or any type of charged attacks are not recommended due to the slow swing rate.

If enough damage is dealt to a leg, he will kneel down, allowing the chance to use a Visceral Attack, but he never flinches from gunfire.

One possible tactic is to stay at a distance and bait the giant's jumping attack, which has a slow recovery animation.

Try to take advantage of weapons with quick and powerful dash attacks. Simply wait for an attack, dash backward then quickly forward using your dash attack.


  • They are weak to Fire/Bolt damage.
  • They have giant tumors that can be burst for massive damage, but should be saved for as long as possible as that means players won't have to deal with the harder phases for as long.


  • These Giants appear to the same as the Church Giants, thus implying that the Healing Church found and enslaved Giants from the Hintertombs. This also makes sense as the naked unarmed Giants can be found in what appears to be a very close to the surface portion of the Hintertombs on the path that leads to Iosefka's Clinic's shortcut, from the Forbidden Woods.
