Stapler - Battle Strategy & Tips

Stapler Overall Tips

  • Attack when it reloads
  • Jumping takes out more staples
  • Learn its attack patterns
  • Staple color changes

Attack When It Reloads


When Stapler runs out of staples, it will open its mouth and start reloading. Attack while its reloading to deal lot of damage. You can make Stapler spit out staples by attacking with the boots or 1000-Fold Arms.

Jump Attack Wastes More Staples


Attacking with a hammer will take out only 1 staple, whereas a jump attack will waste 4 staples! Use the hammer only when it opens its mouth for reloading.

Learn Its Attack Patterns

staple gun

Staple uses Dog Tag to pin you down when you are close to it and uses Staple Gun when you are far away. The Staple Gun consumes more staples so standing far from the boss is one possible strategy you could use to make it reload faster.

Staple Color Changes


The color of the boss's staples change from silver, to red, to gold as the battle progress. The fancier the staple, the higher the attack.

Staple Example Ring Boards

About Ring Boards

We are currently unsure what parts of the board will remain the same and what parts will change when different players attempt the same boss.There is a chance rings the rings you get may have slightly different tiles. Subsequent rings will also likely have different layouts depending on your previous moves!
