Whimsalot (/ˈhwɪmzələt, -ˌlɒt/) is an enemy found in the CORE and an advanced version of Whimsun. It also appears in the Ruins when in Hard Mode.



Whimsalot has more human-like appearance than Whimsun. In addition, their antennae are thicker, and there is muff on their head that branches in two. Whimsalot's appearance is also accompanied by the two-blades spear and a knight mask. Their ghost-like torso is skinnier and shorter.

  • Whimsalot's name comes from Whimsun and Lancelot, the most famous knight of King Arthur's Round Table. Its name also may come from the fact that it "whims a lot."
  • Whimsalot is part of the Reaper Bird, one of the Amalgamates.
  • Losing its mask when spared or killed may be a reference to the battles with Meta Knight from the Kirby series. When defeated, the character in question loses his mask, then disappears.
  • As well as Whimsun, Whimsalot has quotes and flavor text that may be interpreted as references to depression and suicide.
