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.

While The Buried Champion is alive, the vanilla track Boss 5 will play.

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.

Alternatively, the players may summon this boss with an Ancient Blade.

Behavior[edit | edit source]

The Buried Champion assaults the players with a variety of attacks, with different mechanics to worry about every time it loses a third of its total health.

Attacks[edit | edit source]

  • While above 66% life, The Buried Champion attacks with a blade.
    • The Buried Champion hovers a distance from the player, releasing quick slashes of wind horizontally for high damage.
    • The Buried Champion pauses in place, then either swoops over the target player, or quickly charges at the player. It resumes its attacks from the other side.
    • The Buried Champion periodically summons a golden circle below the player that tracks their movements, before stopping and creating a barrage of daggers from below.
  • While between 66% and 33% life, The Buried Champion attacks with a bow.
    • The Buried Champion hovers a distance from the player, rapidly firing normal arrows at the player horizontally that are able to pass through blocks. Once brought below 50% life, its fire rate significantly increases.
    • The Buried Champion pauses in place, then fires a trio of elemental arrows towards the player's position.
    • The Buried Champion sweeps above the player, firing off a volley of falling arrows onto the target player.
  • While below 33% life, The Buried Champion attacks with a staff.
    • The Buried Champion summons a Fallen Champion, that attacks using the same pattern as its blade phase. The Fallen Champion cannot be damaged by normal means.
    • The Buried Champion hovers a distance from the player, firing off volatile Magical Bursts horizontally, that explodes into several smaller projectiles upon tile contact.
    • The Buried Champion pauses in place, then fires three Magical Bursts towards the player's position. If a player hits these bursts with a broadsword, they will be reflected back and damage either the boss or the Fallen Champion.

In Expert Mode

  • While below 33% life, The Buried Champion summons an additional Fallen Champion, that attacks using the same pattern as its bow phase.

Aftermath[edit | edit source]

  • Defeating The Buried Champion for the first time will allow the Spiritualist to arrive if provided suitable housing.
