Dark Souls Secret

Since there are undoubtedly some Dark Souls veterans here, I'm asking if anyone knows anything about that secret that I believe Hidetaka Miyazaki said required multiple playthroughs.

For all we know he could be trolling, like he did with the pendant...

Well to get every achievement you must beat the game multiple times with the same character. Knight's Honor (have every rare weapon) requires multiples of the same boss soul so you have to kill the same boss a few times or get somebody else to drop the items in your world which is unlikely.

The Gravelord Servant covenant's fun powers don't even work until new game plus.

You have to get to NG++++++++++++++++++++++++ and save Solaire and then when he says "was it all a lie? Have I done this all, for nothing?" the game will shut down.

After 10 straight death-less playthroughs, you die in real life.

I'm pretty sure he said somewhere that he was just trolling.

In NG++++ only:

You have to go to Anor Londo at 6:43 PM on a Tuesday and find the purse in the Painted World, grab it and feed it to Frampt.

Your Speeder Bike will now shoot paintballs.

The pendant is the only thing I am aware of

@mosespippy: I wish I could get some confirmation on that, but as far as I know of, the only thing that Miyazaki straight up said he was trolling on about was the starting gifted pendant...

My Google-fu has been failing me.

@gunxspectre: Can you link me to where Hidetaka said that there was a secret that could only be found after multiple playthroughs?

Because all I've ever seen from the developer was the statement that some items could only be used once or twice in a playthrough, meaning that it may take multiple playthroughs to find every secret involving such limited items and time-sensitive events.

There is no secret. Only more death. The True answer to it though is in Dark Souls 2... or is it in Demon's Souls? Who knows.

I read the part where he said it required multiple playthroughs (That's a weird word). It was only two sentences, how could I not read it?

I hate Dark Souls with a passion but please tell me what a Chaneller's Trident is and why it's the end prize. What do you do with it/why is it so valuable?

It's a weapon with a fairly low drop rate, causing frustration for many trying to obtain it, as it is also a necessity for getting all the achievements/trophies. I'm guessing these people have never had to farm for Pure Bladestone in Demon's Souls, which generally takes much, MUCH longer.

Also it lets you do this.

It's also useful for summoning, as the trident's "dance" attack actually buffs nearby friendly NPCs. Seeing as this is dark souls, there's hardly any friendly NPCs, so it has its uses online in PVP. Some people will whip it out after killing you and do the dance to troll.

Actual semi-fun fact/secret: If you ever decide to fight Andre the blacksmith, the dude has a wild move set that isn't seen anywhere else in any other enemy in the game. Like the dude friggin' punches you and does dropkicks. Most people will never see it, because why would you attack Mr. Nice Blacksmith?
