Mad King's Labyrinth

The Mad King's Labyrinth is an area in the Mad King's Realm that's only accessible during Halloween. It uses the same layout as the Lunatic Inquisition activity and contains multiple Halloween creatures, Haunted Doors, Carving Pumpkins, and Raw Candy Corn veins.

Getting there[edit]

Enter through any Haunted Door with a pumpkin icon; Mad King Doors send you to the northwestern waypoint while Bloody Prince Doors send you to the northeastern waypoint. On both sides, players can use a portal near the Lunatic Boatmaster to teleport down into the actual labyrinth.

Banter Between the King and Prince[edit]

The King and Prince, towering above the labyrinth as they argue.

During the Blood and Madness release, Bloody Prince Thorn takes control of part of the labyrinth and can be heard bickering with his Mad King Thorn at random times. These dialogues shed some insight on the Thorn Family past and bring to light more reasons as to why Edrick hates his father.

Edrick's "Tantrums"
Mad King Thorn: I forgot how much your little tantrums bored me, Eddie.
Bloody Prince Thorn: It's Edrick! Edrick the Bloody! Let's see how bored you'll be when I tear you limb from limb, you maniac.
Mad King Thorn: Ooh, getting all emotional, I see. Why don't you run home to momma and cry.
Bloody Prince Thorn: I can't. You beheaded her.
Mad King Thorn: Best birthday ever. What about your stepmother, Estrella?
Bloody Prince Thorn: You put her in a coffin filled with rats and bumped it into the sea! Henrietta was the only one who was kind to me, and you killed her, too.
Mad King Thorn: No, my massacring little moppet. That was you. (laugh) You decided to play Pin the Tail on the Drake with her.
Mad King Thorn: Of course, you literally nailed her hands to the drake. (laugh)
Bloody Prince Thorn: You...stop. Stop laughing! I...I did that? I remember the hammer. All that blood.
Mad King Thorn: Oh, you never liked her. And she bored me. Besides, I was proud of you for that.
Bloody Prince Thorn: Really?
Mad King Thorn: No. You've always been a major disappointment.
Name Struck From History
Bloody Prince Thorn: How dare you. You struck my name from history!
Mad King Thorn: I would have given it back to you the moment you learned your lesson.
Bloody Prince Thorn: But I died in that box.
Mad King Thorn: What can I say? You were always a slow learner.
Starvation and Candy Corn
Bloody Prince Thorn: I will draw out your death, Father. I learned things in that box. Starvation is a slow, agonizing death.
Mad King Thorn: Oh, you're still whining about that. I gave you food.
Bloody Prince Thorn: You locked me in there with a mouth full of candy corn! That's not food. That's...your idea of a joke.
Mad King Thorn: Oh, look. The starving boy is being picky. You always were a whiner.
Bloody Prince Thorn: I don't see why you're so shocked. Your subjects butchered you. You should be used to uprisings.
Bloody Prince Thorn: After all, you killed your father. It's time history repeated itself.
Mad King Thorn: So your plan here is poetic irony? Ooh, I'm so scared. Bloody Prince Thorn. (laughs)
