The King's throne was sculpted right out of the rock where it sits. Many months of work went into its exquisite details.
The Hand of the King has lived here as a recluse for a very long time... No one really knows what he eats.
One can admire the full splendor of the island from this vantage point. And the full extent of its infection by the Malaise.

The Throne Room is the room where the King of the island resides. It is guarded by the final boss of Dead Cells, The Hand of the King.

General information[]

Access and exit[]

The Throne Room can be accessed from either High Peak Castle, Derelict Distillery, or Guardian's Haven. An exit leading to Prisoners' Quarters is available after. In 5 BSC difficulty, another exit to Astrolab is also available.

For the first time HOTK is defeated, after the player's body is destroyed, leaving them with just a head, they will have to enter a fountain's front nozzle in order to end the run. In future runs, they will have to enter in a similar fashion, though they need to detach their head with the Homuculus rune instead.
