Madjick (/ˈmædʒɪk/ "magic") is an enemy found in the CORE. A mercenary sage, its warrior counterpart is Knight Knight. It is associated with the "Sage's Path" in the CORE.



Madjick has a typical appearance of a wizard. It wears a curved wizard hat, a pair of boots and two rotating orbs emitting cross-shaped particles. Madjick has a sly smile on its face, but a pair of bright eyes is revealed by putting off its hat.


Madjick acts self-centered and likes to boast itself. It always speaks in magic words. Madjick seems to be friendly to its fellow wizards, as it starts speaking in regular English and can be spared immediately upon mistaking the stick for a magic wand and regarding the protagonist as a wizard.

In Battle

Appears With


Madjick's head sprite, revealing its eyes.

  • A "Chaser Orb" pursues the protagonist while deploying harmful, but immobile, crosses.
  • A "Corner Orb" spawns at the right corner of the Bullet Board and fires rapid-fire crosses at the protagonist. Each time the SOUL moves in a new direction, the orb moves to the corner the SOUL is traveling. For example, moving the SOUL down moves the orb to the bottom, and going right sends it to the right corner, making it at the bottom-right corner.
  • Three "Chaser Orbs" pursue the protagonist across the screen. This only occurs if the "Chaser Orb" was "Stared" at.


  • The following actions allow the monster to be spared:
    • Stare at each orb once, or Stare at one twice.
    • Clear Mind, then Talk. Madjick chatters to itself and is satisfied.
      • Alternatively, Madjick can be spared after Talking to it without having to Clear Mind. However, this results in getting "confused," inverting the directional controls in battle, as well as causing the protagonist to lose one DF temporarily.
    • Use the Stick. Madjick sees the protagonist as a fellow mage and can be spared.
    • Do not move during a "Chaser Orb" attack for 12 seconds. This method causes the orbs to become green, and Madjick can be spared.
  • Since the "Chaser Orb" has a Wraparound variation, the protagonist can send the orbs to the side and have them reappear somewhere else, giving the SOUL needed space during the pursuit.
    • Also, unlike the other orbs, the 3 "Chaser Orbs" can bounce off each other. This variation can be used strategically to avoid what would be unavoidable collision by grouping them together and have them aim at the SOUL in a cluster, eventually bouncing off each other and having confused pursuit paths.
  • Using Clear Mind increases the protagonist's DF by one for this battle.
  • Using Clear Mind before Talk prevents the protagonist from getting "confused" by Madjick.

  • If one of Madjick's orbs is stared at, that orb weakens. However, Madjick ironically uses that same orb for its next attack, instead of the potent orb.
  • Madjick's name is a hybrid of the words "mad" and "magic" which connects with the involvement of hallucinogens dating back to the origins of early shamanism, animism, and paganism. Its name may be a reference to Majyyk, an energy form in Homestuck, which Toby Fox composed music for. Mad Jack might also refer to this, but it is unlikely.
  • Madjick's battle quote, "Tinkle tinkle hoy," is a reference to the manga Oyasumi Punpun, in which "tinkle tinkle hoy" are the magic words taught by Punpun's uncle that cause God to appear.
  • Madjick's battle quote, "Please and thank you," is a reference to the phrase, "What's the magic word?," as Madjick uses magic. This phrase is usually said to a child to make them say "please" or "thank you."
  • Madjick's check text that states it can only speak in magic words are contradicted by its dialogue when using the stick in its fight, in which it speaks regular English.
  • Madjick originally had a pair of floating hands, but these were scrapped for unknown reasons.[1]
  • Due to a programming error, holding [X] while confused makes the SOUL move at double speed.
  • Madjick's original design was possibly inspired by Rayman from the Rayman series, or Plok from the video game Plok!, as stated in the UNDERTALE Art Book.[2]
