The Pugalisk is a Boss Monster exclusive to the Hamlet DLC. It is found at the Fountain of Youth, on the second-smallest island.

Upon interacting with the Fountain of Youth, the player will receive a Magic Water, and the Pugalisk will spawn from Ominous Carving.

The Pugalisk is immune to any damage until its scales are broken off. Parts unprotected by scales will cause the Pugalisk to take damage if hit. It heals itself by 1 Health Meter.png per 2 seconds.

Once the Pugalisk has taken enough damage, it will start attacking by a ranged attack, freezing the player in place for 3-5 seconds.

if the Pugalisk continues its Range Freezing attack non-stop this means it has entered Defense mode and will try to stop the player from getting close.

Pugalisk can knock down Trees and uproot Tall Grass, Saplings, bushes and other plants, and destroy walls.

Prototype.png Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Drinking Coffee, Tea, using a Stalking Stick or a Walking Cane are ways to have an advantage over the Pugalisk, as its Freezing Attack has a Range.
  • Pugalisk will stop the Freezing Range Attack if the players moves too far.
  • It is not advised to tank the Pugalisk as his head does 150 Damage.
  • Standing next to the fountain will cause Pugalisk to start circling it. This allows the player to keep Pugalisk at bay if done correctly until it starts using its ranged attack.
  • Explosive can kill Pugalisk instantly. Easiest way to do it is equip a Coconade, light it with torch then throw it near the opened skin.

Placeholder.png Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Pugalisk is a portmanteau of a pug and a basilisk.
    • The Pugalisk's ranged attack may be referencing the purported ability of a basilisk to kill or petrify victims by looking at them.
    • Its name may also be a reference to the word pugilist, meaning "fighter."
  • Sometimes the Pugalisk will taunt the player after killing them, by sticking its tongue out and hissing.
  • AoE attack will cause the pugalisk much more damage.
