Bell Demon

bell_demon-quick-item-sekiro-wiki-guide

 A demonic spirit sealed within the Iron Bell of Senpou Temple. Possesses those who ring the bell, strengthening enemies around them.

The Bell Demon confers hardship, but perhaps also slightly better spoils.

Using this item has no particular effect, aside from causing the demon to leave.

Bell Demon is a Quick Item in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. It is used to remove a state caused by ringing the Bell near Senpou Temple, Mt. Kongo.

 

 

 Bell Demon Usage

  • This item's presence in your inventory (along with an icon underneath your health bar) indicates that you are under the effects of the SINISTER BURDEN caused by ringing the bell at Senpou Temple, strengthening enemies around you while at the same time increasing the likelihood of enemies dropping rare items when killed.
  • Using this item gets rid of the buff/debuff, indicated by the words BURDEN DISPELLED. 
  • Testing indicates that the "strengthening" effect increases enemies' health and damage to that of the next New Game Plus cycle (similar to the effect of using a bonfire ascetic in Dark Souls 2). Using it at New Game Plus 7 (the highest level) apparently provides no further increase in difficulty. 

 

 

How to Find Bell Demon

 

 

Bell Demon Notes & Tips

  • If dismissed, the Bell Demon can be regained by re-ringing the bell at the Senpou Temple. Unlike the game's other optional difficulty increase the Bell Demon curse can be toggled on and off throughout the game as necessary. 
  • The Bell Demon and its associated "hard mode" debuff does NOT carry over into New Game Plus and must be reacquired upon starting a new playthrough.
  • If the demon is dispelled near one of the Old Hag women they may give you an item (i.e. Ungo's Sugar)

 

Lore

  • The Demon Bell belongs to a longstanding tradition of FromSoftware games including paranormal bells, From the Bells of Awakening to Yorshka's Chime. Often, these instruments were used to communicate with other planes of existence, to summon the dead, or invoke miracles. The bell of Senpou Temple is a Bonshō bell. These bells are used during the Japanese Bon festival to summon spirits from the underworld, then send them back once the festival is over.

      Great item to get early on, if you dont mind the early difficulty. Iron scraps and other crafting items do sell quite for a bit of cash if you dont mind farming early areas.

          After ringing the bell I got a Bulging Coin Purse as a drop from one of the enemies in the Senpuo Temple near the main hall save point. Makes sense, it's an item.

              I just used this to get rid of the Demon Bell curse and boy....it made a difference. I was playing almost the whole game with this on and with only 1 of the attack upgrades and this game nearly made me quit!!! I'm now able to kill bosses I struggled so hard on a lot quicker now!
