Hunter's Journal

Veteran warrior of the Colosseum of Fools. Fights by the side of the creature she has trained.
Some hunters train beasts to join them in chasing down prey. I tried once, but couldn't resist the urge to test my companion's strength against mine.


Behaviour and Tactics

The God Tamer is the boss at the end of the Trial of the Fool in the Colosseum of Fools.

The rider has a jump and lance swing attack. The beast spits orange blobs or occasionally it curls up into a ball and spin dash, bouncing off walls.

The rider isn't much of a threat, but she does have a lot of range with her long nail lance - it's the beast that should be focused, as the blob attack can corner the player.

Be warned that there are no check points in the Colosseum, so if the player loses to the God Tamer, they will have to start the Trail of the Fool from the beginning.

Thankfully there is plenty of time to heal before the God Tamer enters the arena, and both rider and mount have relatively little health by boss standards, making it easy to damage-burst them both down, especially with Stalwart Shell equipped.

This enemy is only found in the Colosseum of Fools.



  • Beating the God Tamer and thus completing the Trial of the Fool yields no reward other than bragging rights and 1% towards game completion, making the God Tamer boss fight only required in 100% runs.
  • If the beast is killed before the rider, she gives up fighting.
  • The rider shares the same dream dialogue as the infected husks in the Forgotten Crossroads, while the beast shares dialogue with common beasts such as Crawlid.
  • God Tamer is one of the backer-designed bosses, confirmed by Team Cherry in a reddit comment. She was designed by Dmitry Shcherbakov. She is the only backer boss to be included in the base game.
