Also known as Abyss Guards in the Prepare to Die Edition artbook. Bloatheads were once the citizens of Oolacile, warped by Manus' influence when Oolacile awoke him. With their humanity warped, they have been corrupted into creatures with elongated arms and large heads with many red eyes.

There are two kinds of Bloatheads, normal ones and frenzied ones. The latter dealing more damage (25% before Damage Calculation) and Stamina Damage through block (25%). Frenzied Bloatheads have glowing red eyes and drop more souls.
