  • The giant head will swing four times, usually only dealing damage in the first swing.


  • These occasionally erupt from a Praying Hollow Soldier but can be prevented by killing the Hollow before it happens.
  • When on fire, they will stop what they're doing and wail in terror. You cannot "stunlock" them, however. After recovering from a fire attack, they will not be interrupted again for a few seconds.
  • Their frenzy attacks can damage other enemies, including other Pus of Man.
