Elden Ring Players Are Wondering Why The Greater Will Would Even Revive Dung Eater




Elden Ring players are wondering why the heck the greater will would even revive Dung Eater in the first place, with one Redditor comparing it to being like asking The Joker to save Gotham.

One of the most notorious characters in all of Elden Ring is Dung Eater, an NPC that can be found at the Roundtable Hold next to a pile of corpses. No one is really sure how Dung Eater got his name, as he doesn't exactly reveal it during dialogue, but it's theorised that it comes from him eating souls that are located in the butt. It's a whole thing, trust me.

As iconic as Dung Eater is and as interesting as it can be to theorise on how he got his name, Elden Ring players are starting to wonder what part he even has in the Game's world and why the Greater Will would even revive him in the first place. A conversation was recently started on the Elden Ring subreddit by Redditor Creative-Nerve7850 that asked that exact question, with his revival being compared to being like asking the Joker to save Gotham.

The top response on the thread so far is one from Redditor Straight-faced_solo and it does make some sense. According to them, the Greater Will "doesn't give a shit" and simply wants any kind of order in society, something that Dung Eater some how brings. Straight-faced_solo does note that it's an "awful" order, but it's better than none according to the Greater Will.

Redditor Yarzeda also backs this theory, noting that the Greater Will was considering the queen of a "whacked-out mutilation cult" as its avatar, making it clear that it doesn't do background checks and simply wants to see who is the strongest in The Lands Between and find out if "you have what it takes to beat the Lands Between into shape". Seemingly, Dung Eater does.

Most of the theories boil down to the fact that the Greater Will didn't revive anyone based on the good of their hearts or what they could do - it did it to see who had the potential to become the Elden Lord. As bizarre as Dung Eater is, he apparently does have that potential, so uh, don't piss him off.
