A trample attack is a melee attack which knocks the victim back one tile; the trampler then occupies the tile previously occupied by its target. The knockback can't move a target through an impassible (wall, lava, etc.) or occupied tile.

Targets smaller in size than the attacker have a greater chance of being knocked back, and almost all monsters that can trample are among the largest monsters in the game.

Tips & Tricks

  • Pay careful attention to tramplers when near staircases. If one is adjacent as you climb up a stair, you can be trampled off, and it will occupy your former escape route.
  • Trample works oddly with Inner Flame. When killing a target with Inner Flame, the victim is knocked back, then the victim explodes, then the trampler moves to the new tile (thus not getting hit by the explosion).
