Dracula is a tier 3 boss found in the Master's Keep.


In 1+ BSC, Dracula goes straight to the second phase.

Dracula has different moves that he can teleport in between, immediately starting an attack after the teleport has finished.

Once Dracula has been defeated, he will despawn and drop some cells. The arena transforms shortly afterwards, and he re-appears in his Final Form.

First Phase[edit]

Fireball volley
  • Description: Opens his cape and fires three waves of fireballs, with different possible patterns. One with 3-5-3 fireballs that are in a straight vertical line, and one with 5-5-5 fireballs.
  • Can be blocked, parried or dodge rolled.
  • Description: Does a hand to hand combo of two low kicks and a downward punch. The punch will be cancelled if the player moves too far away.
  • Can be blocked, parried or dodge rolled.
Meteor volley
  • Description: Opens his cape and fires 4 meteors in a row with a high-low-high-low pattern.
  • Can be blocked or parried.
    • Getting hit or parrying the attack causes the player to get knockbacked depending on how fast the projectile was moving.

Phase Transition[edit]

Bat volley
  • Description: During his phase transition Dracula teleports to the center of the arena and summons bats in a wave pattern in both directions.
  • Can be blocked or dodge rolled.
  • Has wave pattern, therefore can be avoided by standing in certain place.

Second Phase[edit]

Retains all attacks from first phase.

Fire wave
  • Description: Replaces Fireball volley. Opens his cape and fire short range firewalls in an upwards arc pattern, which explode after traveling for a bit.
  • Can be blocked, parried or dodge rolled.
  • Description: Teleports into the air and dives down onto the player. When the grab connects, Dracula lifts the player up while dealing damage and healing himself.
  • Can be dodge rolled.
  • Ignores the effect of Ice Armor Icon.png Ice Armor - grab breaks the armor and leech deals normal damage.
  • Acts weirdly with Disengagement Mutation Icon.png Disengagement.
    • If grab triggers the Mutation, it will ignore the effect and still deal damage to the Beheaded.
    • If grab happens while the shield is active, Beheaded will survive and Dracula will heal.
  • Can move the Beheaded outside the boss arena. This does not save from receiving damage, as Fireball volley goes through doors.

Phase Transition 2[edit]

Bat volley
  • Description: During his phase transition Dracula teleports to the center of the arena and summons bats in a wave pattern in both directions.
  • Can be blocked or dodge rolled.

Third Phase[edit]

Retains all attacks from first and second phases.

Fire pillars
  • Description: Charges up by putting his hands on the ground, summoning pillars of fire spread across the arena floor.
  • Can be blocked or dodge rolled.



  • Affected by root, freeze, and stun.
  • Beatdown can be countered with Ice Armor Icon.png Ice Armor.
  • Bat volley can be countered with either ranged or melee weapons with a long reach, such as Vampire Killer Icon.png Vampire Killer or Valmont's Whip Icon.png Valmont's Whip.

Primary attacks[edit]

Can be killed by companion/Homunculus rune whithout prompting the boss to attack
