The Sinister Resonant Bell is a consumable item in Bloodborne. It can only be used during online play.


In-Game Description

A blood-stained bell discovered in the old underground labyrinth.
One of the resonating bells that cross the gaps of worlds, but this one knells for misfortune and malice.
The Sinister Bell is an object of dark thoughts. Ring it to become the enemy of a hunter in another world.
Note: Online use only. Cannot use this item offline.



Ringing the Sinister Resonant Bell will search for a Sinister Bell from another world to resonate with, so that the user may invade as an Adversary. Adversaries receive a small handicap.

This bell is rung by a Bell-ringing Woman who has entered a host who himself rang a Beckoning Bell, in seek of Co-Operation.


  • The health reduction to a player that invades as an Adversary, is of 30%. As such, equipping Clockwise Metamorphosis Runes may be a smart decision.
  • Upon ringing the Beckoning Bell, a Bell-ringing Woman will spawn, beckoning adversarial players. If the boss in the area has been defeated, the bell-ringing woman will not appear, making it impossible to invade.
  • Players who wish to invade others, should take into consideration the place they are trying to invade in and their level. If they wish to invade an area at a level where it would be unlikely for them to be there in the first place, then it may be hard to do so.


  • The Sinister Resonant Bell functions almost exactly like the Red Eye Orb from the Dark Souls series.
