    (All shifty) Who needs to know?
    If Im correct its mainly sentient people who disappear, and hollows that stay? Also the knights and animals disappear right? Maybe if we got a better list we could find a connection.

    Hollowed Npc's disappear. Balder Knights stay. Animals, like curse frogs? They stay. Big cats disappear, mushroom men disappear.

    Originally I thought it was things that didnt respawn that disapper, but the silver knights and sentinels proved me wrong. I oculdve sworn the big mushroom men stay.

    I thought about it again and you're right, the big mushrooms stay. I distinctly remember flipping their bodies around, though I think the little ones disappear.

    I think that disappearing signifies that they are not undead, but something else. Whether they are sentient spirits or a different species they are not undead.

    Okay that makes sense sort of. I think it's getting us closer anyway.

    Now the question is what is the difference between an undead and a sentient spirit? Npcs disappear both when they are human and when they're hollow. So what's the difference between them and normal hollows? Aren't regular hollows just people who went hollow?

    A sentient spirit would be similar to the Black Knights which were burned to ashes at the kindling of the first flame. I think that the NPC's are similar to invades, because they are around unless you kill them or are killed by the game at which point they don't spawn, this could just be game mechanics but i'm sure they wouldn't just do that without a valid explanation, this is Dark Souls not LOST silly

    I think that the ones that disappear are the ones that are actual beings. The Sentinals and the Silver Knights are people, too. lol!

    My general rule is: If it drops a gold shiny, it disappears.

    Enemies that Disappear:
    • Black Knight
    • Silver Knight
    • Hydra
    • Fanged Boar
    • Crystal Golems
    • Moonlight Butterflies
    • Sentinels
    • Giants
    • Barbarians
    • Capra Demons
    • Taurus Demons
    • Stone Tree Demons
    • Tree Demons (Stray, Asylum, Firesage)
    • Steel Knights
    • Priscas
    • Mimics
    • Chaos Eaters
    • All NPC Undead (same structure as player; Not include Andre and the Two Hollow Merchants)
    • White Lady of Chaos
    • All Bosses of All Kinds
    • Large Moving Trees (not the Shrubs)
    • titanite Demons
    • Undead Dragon Legs
    • Undead Dragon Upper Body


    May be due to size, however Stone Giants, Channelers, and other beings of a large quality in Size do not disappear. Perhaps it is due to there connection with something in Lordran.

    Things that diosappear - Creations of the gods and things mutated by chaos.

    The answer is....
    Spoiler:
    Some corpses are just buttholes about the whole "continuing to exist" thing

    But this isn't true, stone knights drop gold shinys and don't disappear. Gold shinys are just rare drops that dont go away if the corpse is lost, because it would suck to loose a rare or unique drop like that. Most rare drops just happen to be from disappearing bodies.

    Maybe one, but it is also found within Ash Lake, home of dragon creatures. The hydra in Ash Lake is different.
