The Buried Champion is a boss fought in the Marble Caves. Powerful Pre-Hardmode equipment is recommended, as the attacks of the boss can be incredibly punishing.

Spawn[edit | edit source]

The Buried Champion does not spawn on its own and must be summoned by the player by killing a Bizarre Rock Formation which spawns rarely in the Marble Caves.
