Useful Info

An apis is an extremely rare yak-type monster, found only on holy Ziggurat floors and holy Pan levels. They behave like all yaks, moving into melee range and hitting surprisingly hard with their holy horns (especially dangerous to undead or demonspawn characters). Like most holy monsters, it may be neutral towards worshipers of good gods.

Tips & Tricks

Think death yak but stronger, much more so if you're vulnerable to holy wrath.


The apis was a sacred bull worshiped in ancient Egypt.


Starting in 0.13, apises will appear in the Enchanted Forest. Killing one will trigger Elyvilon's wrath, and she will weaken you for a time as punishment.
