Ok, I have 100% undeniable solid proof that the Souls universe is in fact, multiple stories following a solider struggling through the horrible forests of the Vietnam war!

Basically, the main character in Demon's Souls, Dark Souls, Dark Souls 2, Bloodborne, and *Possibly* Dark Souls 3 is each a soldier in the Vietnam war that is on physchedelic drugs to escape the horrible experiences of the war (or alternatively the dreams of a soldier fighting various "monsters", which were the Vietnamese in reality, but nightmares in the dream, which fits with the themes of Bloodborne)

In each game, the concept of the "invader" is a break from the soldier's drugged state/dream and comes face to face with a Vietnamese soldier (a.k.a. Viet Cong).

Each game ends with the main character dying in a way inflicted by the Vietnamese, with the exception of demon's souls (communism, the old one, metaphorically, takes over and prevails). In Dark Souls 1, the main character burns to death because the Vietnamese light him on fire when captured. In Dark Souls 2, the main character is entrapped in a stone jail, left for dead by the Vietnamese. In Bloodborne, a Vietnamese soldier,Gehrman, chops off the main character's head.

Now, I'll go over each game in detail with cold, hard, PROOF.

DEMON'S SOULS- The main character gives in to U.S. propaganda to "slay the demons" (Vietnamese) The U.S. is represented by the maiden in black and the monumental (WHO, LOOKS VIETNAMESE. COINCIDENCE? NOPE.) In addition, one boss is named "Old Monk" (can it be more obvious??)

DARK SOULS- Ok, remember that snake on the tree in the FOREST that would bite you? (the war was fought in a forest) Well, it turns out the Vietnamese would actually nail snakes onto trees to bite passing soldiers in the war. Source: http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=K4cLiV_o8Go Try refuting THAT.

DARK SOULS 2- Estus is a metaphor for a drug that makes him hallucinate, and keep him away from reality.

BLOODBORNE- Perhaps my strongest evidence. In the Forrbidden FOREST, enemies fire rifles, they wear hats, there are HEAPS of traps like pitfalls, spiked logs, snakes, which were very common in the Vietnam war (Source: http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=K4cLiV_o8Go) Also, the concept of dreaming in bloodborne would fit my "soldier dreaming" theory, making it quite plausible. The werewolves and the "disease" were metaphors for communism the U.S. was fighting to stop.

Well, that's my cold, hard solid proof that Souls=Vietnam War.

I can't believe I watched that whole video. That's disturbing. Those communists are sadists, how would anyone else come up with those torture methods? People are so f***ed up in the modern world.

Well in that case it's a blatant rip off of Halo.
