Bloodborne Data Miners Find Unused Bosses And More

by Imran Khan on Dec 01, 2017 at 05:00 PM

Around a day ago, Bloodborne data mining programs were publicly introduced on Reddit by user daemon1 after years of trying to dive deep into the game. In the time since, fans of the game have already gone through and found unused bosses and enemies in the game files.

Youtube user Sanadsk, who is well known for videos on lore and hidden content, was given files from daemon of both enemies and NPCs that didn't make it into the final game. Sanadsk was tasked with showing off the cool things that were left on the cutting room floor.

One boss, a golden-furred chimera beast, seems like it also has black fur, spurring speculation that it might have gone gold during the fight. Another boss looks like a two-headed winged demon that doesn't seem to make sense within Bloodborne's world, but would fit in well with Dark Souls. Related to that, a skeleton monster is also seen which is near-identical to Dark Souls 3's Carthus Skeleton enemy, indicating it must have been in Bloodborne originally.

Check out the video below to see everything shown so far, with promises of far, far more in the future.


Our Take
I am eager to see what else didn't make the cut for Bloodborne, as skeletons alone seem like they'd have big lore implications. I am also curious what was originally in Bloodborne that made it into Dark Souls 3.
