Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Krampus is based on an Alpine folkloric figure of similar appearance, supposedly acting as a contrast to Saint Nicholas, punishing children who misbehave near Christmas time.
    • This is most likely why A Lump of Coal is in his item pool.
  • Krampus's attack pattern and appearance are similar to The Fallen, but Krampus does not charge or split.
  • Added in Afterbirth Krampus can spawn in Greed Mode without needing to be unlocked.
    • Defeating Krampus will unlock Head of Krampus Head of Krampus even if Krampus himself has not yet been unlocked.
