You do all sorts of dodging in a Dark Souls game, sometimes by the skin of your teeth. Perhaps a blade just barely passes over your head, saving you from an instant death. Dark Souls fans call these moments hitbox porn.

All it takes is a quick search of YouTube to realize how prominent this is.

It’s a celebration of close calls while playing the Souls games, a combination of skill and luck. It’s also a testament to how well-designed the hit boxes are (usually) in Souls; players can do some extraordinary things!
