Attacks by a knockback entity will cause the target to be knocked back the opposite direction, and will cause specific effects based on the tile behind it:

  • A wall: the wall is destroyed, the target takes its place, and it is dealt Knockback% of your base damage as typeless damage.
  • A monster: both entities are dealt 80% of Knockback% of your base damage as typeless damage.
  • Empty: the target is moved to the empty tile
  • Indestructible tile or map edge: no effect
Knockback damage is applied after normal damage: if you are relying on the knockback damage to finish off the monster, first strike won't be of any use and your opponent will have time to hit you.
Also, note that the knockback damage is applied after the cowardly effect. Thus when fighting a monster with this trait:
  • if you throw it into a wall, it will take knockback damage
  • if you throw it into a monster, it will escape before taking knockback damage

Applicable Monster Debuffs



One stack of Burning is applied to a monster when the attack source has the Trait: Burning Burning trait. (from Glyph: BURNDAYRAZ BURNDAYRAZ or Item: Whurrgarbl Whurrgarbl). Only one enemy can be Burning at any given time.

Attacking another monster or applying an attack to the Burned monster from a non-Burning attack removes the trait, dealing Magical damage equal to the number of Burning stacks on expiration; hitting a monster with this trait using an attack which inflicts Burning will deal bonus damage equal to the number of pre-existing Burning stacks on it, then the new stacks are applied.
Maximum charges of Burning equal x2 of your current level.
When exploring tiles, a monster with this trait will regenerate HP as though it were 1 level lower than it actually is, regardless of how many stacks it has.


The target has a slow attack speed, meaning that it will usually attack last in combat (and thus not injure the player for the final blow). See more details in strike order.

Being Slowed also disables the following monster traits: Trait: Blinks Blinks, Trait: Cowardly Cowardly, Trait: First strike First strike, Trait: Retaliate: Fireball Retaliate: Fireball. Killing a Slowed monster grants a bonus of 1 XP. If a monster has been Slowed, the effect will usually wear off as soon as the monster takes damage (including from Glyph: BURNDAYRAZ BURNDAYRAZ or Glyph: PISORF PISORF).

You can slow enemies with the Glyph: WONAFYT WONAFYT and Glyph: WEYTWUT WEYTWUT glyphs, the Item: Titan Guitar Titan Guitar item, or the God boon: Entanglement Entanglement boon.
