His boss room can be accessed from the Undying ShoresFF or the CavernRotG.

Requires the Fatal Falls DLC.

Moveset[edit | edit source]

First phase[edit | edit source]

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

Scythe swing
  • Description: The Scarecrow runs up to the player and swings out with a scythe.
  • Can be blocked, parried, and dodge rolled.
Seed planting
  • Description: The Scarecrow throws two or three seeds across the platform that will sprout mushrooms. Interacting with these mushrooms will cause them to explode soon after. Before exploding, a red aura will appear as a warning signal to the player.
  • Can be blocked, parried, and dodge rolled.
Shovel swing
  • Description: The Scarecrow swings burrows underground and periodically pops out to attack the player with a big shovel.
  • Can be blocked, parried, and dodge rolled.
Flying sickles
  • Description: The Scarecrow jumps up and summons two flying sickles that will fly in an arc reaching the limits of the chamber. He then smashes downwards on the platform and his sickles return to him shortly after.
  • Can be blocked, parried, and dodge rolled.
Acid rain
  • Description: Vines will sprout from the Scarecrow and allow him to be suspended. He will then summon a watering can and follow the player, raining down purple acid that will inflict damage upon contact.
  • Can be dodge rolled.

Second phase[edit | edit source]

At 50% HP, the Scarecrow speeds up and gets an extra attack.

Pitchfork jab
  • Description: Vines will sprout from the Scarecrow which allows him to be suspended in the air. From there, they will move horizontally and stab downwards in an attempt to stab the player. After each stab, a JerkshroomTBS will be spawned at the location where the pitchfork hit the ground.
  • Can be blocked, parried, and dodge rolled.
  • Be careful with the JerkshroomTBS that was just spawned, as it may be a slight element of chaos when trying to avoid other attacks.

Weapons/Skills[edit | edit source]

  • Since the Scarecrow's shovel swings increase in number throughout the boss fight, being able to parry each swing will be essential to take the least amount of damage possible during this boss fight.
    • This is especially true for shields like the Rampart Icon.png Rampart and Punishment Icon.png Punishment since their effects will be activated on each and every parry you make.
  • The Scarecrow has extremely low defense and HP, so very high dps weapons that can out speed him, such as the Meat Skewer Icon.png Meat Skewer or Sadist's Stiletto Icon.png Sadist's Stiletto, with proper synergy, can make very quick work of the boss.
    • Because of this speed, slower weapons, such as the Scythe Claw Icon.png Scythe Claw. can struggle, so mutations that can speed up attacks such as Kill Rhythm Mutation Icon.png Kill Rhythm can be exceptionally helpful when dealing with the rapid attack onslaught, especially when complimented with a shield.

Lore[edit | edit source]

The scarecrow was the Royal Gardener, and when the royal gardener was infected with the malaise, he died in the prisoner's quarters with the key to his arboretum. After the player visits his body once, they will notice that his body has left. the Royal gardener then traveled to the arboretum, leaving a note saying he was suddenly alive again, but he could feel the effects of the malaise starting to change him. he then traveled to the Fractured Shrines in hope of the locals helping him, only to find that they too had become monsters because of the malaise. He traveled to the undying shores where he found the apostates in the same state. after this, he was planning on going to the lighthouse seen from the shores, but the malaise had weakened him to much. he then went to the Mausoleum, and it was there he underwent transformation into what is now known as the Scarecrow.
