Darkbeast Paarl is a hidden bronze trophy Bronze trophy.png in Bloodborne. It is part of the base game and does not require any DLC to earn.


Darkbeast Paarl is an optional boss who you may or may not encounter during your playthrough of the game. He is a sub-boss of Yahar'gul, Unseen Village, and he guards the door that connects it back to Old Yharnam. You can encounter him early on in the game (as your 5th or 6th boss) by letting one of the "death eater" enemies who carry sacks on their shoulders kill you. This will cause you to wake up deep inside Yahar'gul, and one of the ways to escape this area is to kill Darkbeast Paarl. However, he is extremely challenging when you encounter him early in the game, so it is recommended that you avoid this if possible.

If you did not encounter him early in the game, you can find him later on by going to the lamp at the bottom of Yahar'gul (where you fought The One Reborn) and backtracks into town a bit. He isn't difficult to find if you search around the lower areas of the village.

To defeat him, stay behind him, under his hind legs, and do not lock onto him. Instead, slash away at his hind legs, and he will eventually fall to the ground. Then slash away at his other hind leg to make him quickly fall again. Repeat this until he is dead. Make sure that you avoid his area-of-effect shockwave attack, as it can instantly kill you at low levels. See the following video guide:
