Putrid Corpse is a Humanoid Enemy in Elden Ring. Putrid Corpses are the reanimated dead that roam the Lands Between en masse. Usually found in large groups around graves and catacombs. There are many different variants of Putrid Corpses, often taking on characteristics of their surroundings such as being imbued with poison from toxic pools of water, or developing large blisters full of cursed blood in the Mohgwyn Palace. This allows them to deal different types of damage and afflict opponents with varying status effects.
A group of four (4) Putrid Corpse spirits can be summoned for aid by using the Putrid Corpse Ashes.
Their movements are dull and confused... True death does not come easily for them.

Putrid Corpse Notes & Tips
- There are a few Fungal Putrid Corpses in Miquella's Haligtree that wait behind corners to shove unwary players off the edge of the platform and to their death. This can be avoided if the player checks their corners.
- There are occasionally somewhat taller individual Putrid Corpses that have more health and drop more Runes.
