mariachi calavera You're fighting a mariachi calavera

This frightening apparition is a malevolently animated skeleton wearing a mariachi suit. Even though it's a skeleton, it somehow has a gigantic beer belly. You probably shouldn't have eaten the worm at the bottom of the mescal.

Hit Message(s):

It pokes you in the <ear> with one skeletal finger. Ugh! Ow!

It plays a skeletal tune on its skeletal guitar. You feel chills running up and down your <thigh>. Ouch! Ugh!

Critical Hit Message:

He plays a brisk tune on his guitar (not pictured) and you suddenly burst into flames. This thing must be a friend of the Devil. Ugh! Argh! Oof! (hot damage)

Miss Message(s):

It tries to poke you with its skeletal fingers, but you break one off and find it's made of tasty marzipan.

It plays a skeletal tune on its skeletal guitar. You tell it that its suit has a touch of grey in it, but it kind of suits it anyway.

Fumble Message:

It asks you if you want it to play you a song, but you avert your eyes and make vague dismissive sounds. Close call! (FUMBLE!)

After Combat

Candyskull.gifYou acquire an item: marzipan skull (30.4% chance)*

You gain 4 <substat>.

  • Using Pickpocket on this monster may yield a calavera concertina from about 5% of pickpocket attempts.
  • Despite its skeletal nature, the Mariachi calavera is immune to the rusty bonesaw. Per #6, it's too fast for the bonesaw to be effective.


  • The "skeletal tune" miss message is a reference to the song "Touch of Grey", by The Grateful Dead: "Oh well a touch of grey, kinda suits you anyway / That's all I had to say, but it's all right."
  • "Mariachi calavera" is Spanish for, roughly, "skull musician".
  • The introductory text refers to mescal (not tequila, despite the popular myth) traditionally being served with a worm at the bottom of the bottle.
