The Scourge Beast is an enemy in Bloodborne.

Description

Scourge Beasts were once humans who, after being infected by the plague, transformed into these creatures. They are humanoid monsters with facial features of a wolf. Their bodies eventually become covered in black fur.

Scourge Beasts are known for their agility, acute senses, and a hunger for human flesh. They usually hunt in small numbers of two to three in an effort to overwhelm their prey. When night falls, the citizens of Yharnam hunt Scourge Beasts, and burn their corpses in pyres.

Yahar'gul variant

In Yahar'gul, when the Red Moon appears, a different strain of Scourge Beast is seen: these monsters retain the feral quadruped appearance but are no more werewolf-like, instead seem to be made of raw flesh and sharp bones fused together, showing a ribcage which looks like a maw and a mutilated leg where a tail should be, similar to The One Reborn.

They have identical attacks to their regular version.

Strategy

Scourge Beasts can be dealt with using quick melee attacks. It has a tell animation before it lunges, giving the player time to dodge or interrupt with a gunshot. They are also quite vulnerable to fire, making Molotov Cocktails and Fire Paper combined with Oil Urns useful.

Trivia

  • Scourge beasts have a lycanthrope-like appearance and are most likely based on the werewolf myth.
