Amygdala 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.


Amygdala is a hidden boss in the game that many players will not come across naturally. To find the boss, follow these steps:

  • Go to the Nightmare Lecture Building (you will eventually get here naturally as part of the storyline progression). There is one very large enemy standing in a corner, and behind him is a hole in the floor. Drop down.
  • You are now on the first floor of the building. Go out the front door to be teleported to the Nightmare Frontier (if you go outside on the 2nd floor, you will reach a different section of this outside nightmare area). Make your way through this (fairly long and difficult) area.
  • You will eventually cross a narrow bridge that leads into a large, open circular area. Once you reach the middle of this circular area, Amygdala will drop down, and you will fight it.

The strategy for Amygdala is to stay behind it at its tail. Most of its attacks take place in front of it or directly under it (so do not stand right under its hind legs or under its chest). Also, do not lock on, as that will just make it more difficult to target its tail. Just slash away at its tail and heal when necessary, and you should be OK as long as you avoid its frontal attacks.

You will earn Chalice of Ailing Loran (bronze) at the same time as this trophy. See the following video guide:
