Humanity (item)

Humanity in 'solid form' is collected or purchased as a Consumable that will appear in the item inventory. These consumables are not lost upon death and, when used, are converted to Humanity in 'loose form' as an increase to the Humanity stat. Solid form Humanity consumables can not be used directly to revive to human form or to kindle a bonfire - they must be used from the item menu to obtain a resulting Humanity stat point, which can then be spent.

In Game Description

Rare tiny black sprite found on corpses.
Use to gain 1 humanity and restore a
large amount of HP.

This black sprite is called humanity, but
little is known about its true nature.
If the soul is the source of all life,
then what distinguishes the humanity
we hold within ourselves?




Refer to the Humanity Farming page for ways of quickly acquiring humanity.


Soft Humanity (stat)

Humanity in 'loose form' is added to the counter to increase the Humanity stat point. It is referred to as Soft Humanity by the community. This is shown in the upper left corner of the HUD as well as on the Character stat screen. Upon death, any Humanity stat points are lost, along with any souls. Both can be retrieved from the player character's Bloodstain.
