Behavior[edit | edit source]

    • Added in Afterbirth The Brimstone beams sometimes can rotate 90 degrees after being shot.
      • Added in Afterbirth † Krampus will growl just like The Fallen and quickly dash towards the player if the Brimstone Beams are going to rotate.

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 split upon death.
  • 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.
  • In an AMA subreddit thread for Edmund McMillen, a user questioned why Krampus got "worse with every update." Edmund McMillen jokingly responded, "he's the new bloat."
