The Three-Eyed Leg (in-game name Kolmisilmän Koipi) is a mini-boss which spawns in the pyramid biome. It rests on an altar, and will only awaken once the player gets close enough to it.
It will periodically spawn smaller skull enemies (usually in pairs) that shoot toxic sludge projectiles. It cannot be normally damaged, except by fire, while its carapace isn't open.
Behaviour[edit | edit source]
The Three-Eyed Leg is immune to most of the damage unless it reveals its inner reddish tissue, which is its weakness, for casting projectiles. Damages including melee, explosion and projectiles are stopped in this way, but fire is an exception. It is unknown if other effects, such as poison and toxic sludge, deal damage to it.
Once awoken, the Three-Eyed Leg tends to wander up and to the west. It often runs away from fights due to ascending too high.
The Three-Eyed Leg has 4 types of attacks:
- Summons multiple (usually 1-3) allies, and each of them has about 10-20 hp and can shoot projectiles toward you. They can be damaged by projectiles from the Three-Eyed Leg .
- Reveals its red inner tissue, and either casts 3 bursts of projectiles in a circle pattern, or 2 large projectiles with a slight homing effect towards the player. It takes any kinds of damage in this case if you shoot directly at its red tissue. It will likely move towards the east and give up chasing after the player when shooting projectiles.
- Uses one limb to poke at the player and deals melee damage, if they are close enough.
- Sprints towards the player, destroys materials on its way.
Strategies[edit | edit source]
Although explosions deal no damage to the Three-Eyed Leg at most of the time, but the fire caused by explosion can damage it greatly. Predicting its landing position after summoning, and dropping a bomb there allow a player to kill it quickly. However, the fire of a single bomb may not be enough to kill it, so some extra attacks are required.
Keeping moving to the east and shooting at it while it is casting projectiles allow you to deal damage to it and avoid its projectiles.
The Three-Eyed Leg can wander away from the battle quickly, so it may be a good idea to escape from the one above ground and then dig down to kill the other one stuck underground in tunnels.
