The Cursed Skull (and the Dragon Skull on Console only.png Console and Mobile only.pngMobile versions) is a flying enemy found only in the Dungeon. It is similar to the Meteor Head, with high damage, slow speed, and the ability to travel through tiles. It floats slowly towards the player, occasionally stopping to float in a circle around them for a while, before suddenly lunging forward to attack. When striking a player, the Cursed Skull has a small chance to apply the Cursed debuff. This renders the player unable to use items, including Weapons, Potions, and Grappling Hooks, making it very difficult to avoid further damage.

Cursed Skulls are immune to the Poisoned, On Fire!, Venom, Shadowflame, Confused, and Cursed Inferno debuffs. They are much more likely to appear in Dungeon areas where there are Brick Walls.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • On the Mobile only.pngMobile version, Dragon Skulls will drop a Gold Key every time as well as a gold coin. This is likely because of the rarity of Dragon Skulls, tying with the low spawn rate of a Dungeon Slime.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Cursed Skulls can be attacked through walls with melee weapons. Weapons with long range like Spears work well. This may, however, result in drops being trapped inside of the wall beyond the player's reach.
  • Cursed Skulls and Dragon Skulls rather rarely drop more than 3 Bones on some occasions
