Its been a while since I have seen one. Saw my first red evil vagrant tonight. If you don't know what they are you can read about them here. The only one I have never encountered is the red good vagrant. And I have only ever encountered the other three once a peace. And those were all in different versions of the game.

Here are what they look like:

Evil Vagrant
Red Evil Vagrant
Good Vagrant (drift item)

I hope they have more odd ball stuff like this in DSII. But hopefully they are more powerful enemies that give better loot. They are not very powerful, and are some what rare. Or at least they used to be. They seem to appear more in the Prepare to Die edition.

I don't think that video is large enough.

Had just loaded my save up at the Bonfire in Anor Londo when I was one-shotted by a Red Evil Vagrant.

The only time I've seen one.

Wow, so thats what those things are. In all the recent souls resurgence I decided to replay ds again and was kind of surprised when I encountered about 3 of these guys in the span of about a weekend, I had never seen them in my previous 2 playtroughs and didn't know what they were.

I'm curious to know if these enemies were in the game from the start though or if they were patched in later? I played the game right at launch and continued till I completed my new game+ run (with timeout for skyrim ps3 edition so... not that long), but I played mostly offline at the time and seeing as there is some online component to these dudes spawning I cant be sure that this wasn't the reason I hadn't seen them before.

When I was playing on 360, I saw a good one I think. On top of the tower with the crossbowman, before the stairs to Havel's door. I had no idea what it was, and have never saw another since.

Once in the painted world. I killed a crab-like creature before I even wanted to because I was distracted showing the game to a certain lady on a I-phone doing face-time, lol. It was red, but it didn't stand a chance, which bothered me.. I thought I had sinned and went to be forgiven, mistaking that for actually being guilty of Priscilla.

@burgavo: They have been in the game since day one. They were just super rare up until the DLC patch. They have been much more common since.

Found a Red Evil Vagrant in the Chasm of the Abyss. I assumed it was a normal enemy and that it would be the first of many I would find down there. Was curious why I only ever saw one, but I never looked into it.

I've seen two, I believe. One for sure. I'm pretty sure I've seen a good one at some point but I don't remember where. I saw an evil one recently on the invisible walkway in the crystal caves leading to the Blue Titanite Slab.
