Krampus is a mini-boss that the player sometimes encounters in the Devil Room. It takes the form of a large flying demon with a white head and four horns. Krampus is actually a mythological creature used in Alpine countries that is used to scare naughty children, which is what this mini-boss is based upon. Krampus is very similar to The Fallen, so similar in fact that many people consider Krampus to be an alternate version of The Fallen even though he does not actually replace him.
When killed Krampus will always drop the A Lump of Coal item that can be re-rolled into other Devil Room items using the D6.
Krampus is pretty much the same as The Fallen except that he does not split into two, making him easier.
His first attack will have him shoot two rounds of bullets at the player. One of them is a 3 way-shot while the other is a 4-way one.
His other attack will have Krampus shoot blood streams in all of the cardinal directions. This attack is only triggered if you enter his left, right, upper, or lower areas and is preceded by a roar and an animation that looks like Krampus is about to sneeze.
Krampus is not a particularly hard mini-boss, but his attacks can be hard to avoid for the unaware player. Always move out of the way when the blood beam animation starts or you are sure to get hit. Avoiding his projectile attack is really easy if you keep a good distance between you and Krampus, but it can also be avoiding by circling around him while he is shooting. Both of his attacks deal half a heart of damage.
