The Cursed Skull (and the Dragon Skull on Old-gen console version Old-gen consoleMobile only.pngMobile, and 3DS logo.svg) 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 are guaranteed to drop a Gold Key and a gold coin. This is likely because of the low rarity and high difficulty of Dragon Skulls.

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 can, rather rarely, drop more than 3/6 Desktop VersionConsole Version Bones when defeated.
