Misbegotten is a Humanoid Enemy in Elden Ring. Misbegotten are medium-sized humanoids with varying animalistic traits, such as tails, wings, and vaguely reptilian legs. They are treated as lesser by many, but should not be underestimated.

The spirit of a Winged Misbegotten can be summoned for aid in battle by using Winged Misbegotten Ashes.

The misbegotten are held to be a punishment for making contact with the Crucible, and from birth they are treated as slaves, or worse.

Misbegotten Notes & Tips

  • There are four types of Misbegotten. The basic Misbegotten are flightless and wield Iron Cleavers.  Winged Misbegotten use their fully-developed wings to fly and may attack with arrows and swords. The Scaly Misbegotten are covered in tough scales and carry Longhaft Axes. Those with leonine features wielding Greatswords are the Misbegotten Warriors.
  • Hewg is the only Misbegotten willing to speak to the player.
  • In the Japanese version of the game, internal files relating to the Misbegotten are named “Children of Radagon”. In the English version of the game (patch 1.00), the Winged Misbegotten was called a “Radagon chimera.” This may explain why Misbegotten Warriors have red hair like Radagon and how one managed to obtain the Golden Order Greatsword.

      The axe-wielding ones are utter BS. Hyper-armor out the a**, SUPER delayed attacks for NO justifiable reason. I get they're supposed to be early-game enemies and their attacks are supposed to tell new players that the slower and more telegraphed attacks are, the harder they'll hit so you'll need to learn the timings.

      This is complete and utter b*llshit. Even with 900+ hours in the game, their attack timings mix me up even more than Waterfowl Dance and they can just cancel into an unreactable headbutt slam whenever they want.

      F*ck these guys.

        if you learn only hatred from humans, you learnt to hate ALL OF THEM. Hatred births more hatred.
        look at the cycle.
        nobles hated Misbegotten, and tortured and committed grave acts against them.
        Misbegotten lashing out, and murdering their former slavers.
        The hatred they suffered led to thinking all humans were bad, or out to massacre the lot of them.

        the hatred spreads, and consumes so many, to the extent the afflicted will become worse than what defined them.

          Everyone may hate these guys, but the reason they act the way they do is because they quite literally hate the world for what it has done to them, so they will spite it by killing everything indiscriminately (except their own kind and those that are useful to them)

            Hey Fromsoft, a bit of advice. If you want players to feel sorry for a particular type of enemy then maybe don't make them so f*cking obnoxious and unfun to fight.

            I don't care how tragic their lore is, these Dark Crystal looking motherf*ckers get the Anakin Skywalker treatment anytime I see them.

            • Not only are they repulsive and utterly evil, but their attacks are so weird and clunky it's never fun to fight them, especially the weird delayed swings axe guys have. A disgusting enemy and the only one I always slaughter, even if they don't attack me and chill (while chopping up corpses, yeah). Ugly bodies shape ugly souls, I guess. No love for the wicked

                is there a lore connection between these and the 'redmanes' that served radagon? the claymore weapon art is described as a forward summersault--the kind that these dudes perform. it says that this is the tactic of the "redmanes" who served radagon. Also, the fur on the misbegotten legs is red (red mane).

                a stretch, but interesting to think about.

                  Why so much hate for this guys? There are a lot more enemies worse and unfun to fight. These guys are savage but I find them a good average enemy, not to mention the misbegotten warriors are badass.

                    I think the Misbegotten, Omen and Demi-Humans could’ve been made to wield Occult type weapons as their element like the Albanurics, but rather than an arcane build, they could’ve been made to represent a sort of “dark element” that’s missing from the game. Kinda like how there are elemental enemies wielding fire weapons, ice weapons, etc,. since their overall vibe gives that “repressed and malicious” feel. Maybe they’ll incorporate it into the DLC if there is any?

                          These guys remind me of the Corvians in Dark Souls 3. The half formed creature and the prayer they do at Haligtree.

                                  I think that these were born alongside Radagon, who could have been birthed by Rennalas Amber Egg (it has similar red hair in it). We dont know when these Misgegotten were formed, but since the big Redhaired once have a conection to Radagon, it might be because they all came from the crucible. I know that sounds like dumb dodo, but at least we know for sure that Radagon was first known when he fought alongside Marika and Godfrey against the giants. Radagon btw only became One with Marika when they married, "consorts Bedchamber site of Grace, after Morgott but before Fire Giant" Melina will tell you that.

                                      I feel bad for the Omens and all cause despite the fact that they are a pain to fight, their backstory is really sad and depressing and they were completely innocent yet hated,shunned,tormented and murdered for a curse they were born with that they have no control over, but these ugly annoying little douchebags can go eat a bag of ****s, i'll never feel bad for murking their stupid asses.

                                        There's a mistake under Locations. The Unsightly Catacombs are in the Altus Plateau, not Mt. Gelmir. They're directly beneath Perfumer's Ruins.

                                          Hewg is noticeably less twisted in face and body than other Misbegotten. I believe it’s indicative of him having a kinder heart than the rest of his kind.

                                            Fun misbegotten facts! You can find their eggs/cocoons at the haligtree. This is because they're safe at the haligtree and not treated as lesser beings there

                                                  I noticed that in the area outside of the fort they rebeled at, there is a troll completely unharmed while the soldiers and footmen have all been slaughtered. More evidence that Misbegotten don't kill in an animalistic, unthinking way. They recognized that the trolls are also enslaved and made the decision not to gang up on it and kill it along with the others.

                                                    Castle Morne affected me more than I thought it would. The mound of corpses. The crazed cheering. The hanged foot men.

                                                    The misbegotten seem very monstrous to begin with but if the blacksmith at round table is any evidence: they are people.

                                                    Which begs the question. What could drive someone to murder an entire castle?

                                                      Do they guarantee you to get hit by the flying ones before you can kill them? I have found no way to hit them without getting hit back, but they do little damage. Is that REALLY their idea for them?

                                                        There are some of these in Leyndell at a graveyard, that are not aggressive. Just praying or begging at statues or gravestones, just looking pitiful. This was just sad.
                                                        Then again Leyndell is just generally depressive... with all the citizens just sitting there, looking broken and defeated.
                                                        Didn't kill anybody there that didn't attack me.

                                                          Could be wrong, but I think when all the lore is pieced together down the road, These guys are gonna be at the center of everything. They are humanoid creatures, they have scales, knots, horns, wings, tails. There's multiple "crucible talismans" that refer to wings/scales/knots that used to grown on the bodies of humans but it became increasingly rare. Which ties them to the crucible directly and crucible knights, The Leonine Misbegotten are clearly a more evolved species of them and they have red hair and a more human like face. not to mention the one you find in a cave weilding a Legendary holy artifact sword of the golden order. The one you fight in radahn castle, ALONGSIDE a crucible knight drops the Ruins Greatsword which comes from "a city that was floating in the sky but struck by a meteor". The only other person that has red hair that I know of besides the giants is Radagon. Idk, my brain could just be a tin foil hat in itself nowadays, but there's too many connections to other things in the game that's subtle. It's misbegotten all the way down

                                                              I tought the delay was far too long for me to just wait here and i should be able to land a few hits and still have time to dodge.
                                                              But every time i try that when i see the classic slash startup, they suddenly don't delay it.

                                                              I saw most bosses react to what i do, usually they only continue their combo if i'm close to them in case i try to punish too early, but if you roll back they'l stop earlier.
                                                              But on delayed move on a trash mob? Cmon

I have a lot of sympathy for these little guys. From the way even the ones with tiny mismatched wings struggle to fly during their jump attacks, to the way they stick it to their snobby noble overlords.
