Booby-trapped walls in the Labyrinth.

The Labyrinthine Horror is a massive, powerful skeleton that periodically spawns when a player approaches one of the random booby-trapped walls in the Mad King's Labyrinth, which can be identified by their red glow. (See map for trap locations).

The Horror is fragile compared to the other Labyrinth bosses, but deals high damage and is extremely difficult to outrun. It can easily catch even the fastest of player characters and roams around the entire circumference of the Labyrinth, making it difficult to avoid and/or pin down as well. Most notably, players can accidentally summon it while they're fighting the Grand High Viscount of Candy Corn or Skeletal Lich if they don't watch where they're going.

  • Killing this creature awards the Bonebreaker achievement.
  • It's on a variable respawn timer and often respawns faster than the Lich and Viscount.
    • Once the timer has elapsed, the Horror will emerge from the wall when any player approaches one of the flashing red areas within the Labyrinth. These are at the same locations that alert Lunatics when approached by Villagers in Lunatic Inquisition.
