Jack'O Lantern is a pumpkin-headed dark horseman who appears only in Desecrated Grove. In the update description, he is also known as the Headless Horseman. He does not have an encyclopedia entry.

Overview

Usually (but not always) when the Moon is full, Jack'O Lantern will announce his presence with an evil laugh, then appears at a random point on the path. He will then summon some Zombies and/or Ghouls, then either quickly disappear or continue to summon until killed. These Zombies and Ghouls give Gold on Steam and Android. In Heroic mode, Jack has been observed summoning Ghosts. He can also remove his head and throw it for a ranged attack, dealing 100 area damage that ignores half of the target's armor. In iOS, the ranged attack deals 50-70 area damage, dealing only physical damage. 

Because Jack'O Lantern always summons an entourage when he appears, it is often not easy to isolate and kill him before he disappears unless you are using a fast melee-capable hero like Dante or Kutsao. However, he should always be killed if possible because of his enormous bounty (200), and because he might linger up to four or five times during a full Moon, making him a very profitable (if a bit unreliable) source of gold.

Strategy

  • Archmage Towers are very good at killing them, since they deal very high damage.
  • Although Rain of Fire kills him almost instantly, it might be a waste, since it may be needed soon after when there is a large group of enemies that can overwhelm the player's defenses.
  • Since Jack O' Lantern is considered a mini-boss, he is immune to all instant kill attacks.
  • For best results, the player should build more towers rather than upgrading a few so that they can start concentrating aiming on Jack O' Lantern.

Appearances

Jack appears multiple times on some waves:

  • 2 times on Wave 2
  • 2 times on Wave 6
  • 3 times on Wave 9
  • 5 times on Wave 12
  • 4 times on Wave 14
  • 4 times on Wave 15

Trivia

  • His appearance appears to be based on the Headless Horseman from United States folklore. It could, also, be a reference to the Dullahan from Celtic mythology. However, his actual head is not seen.
  • The Jack O' Lantern cannot be killed, if its HP reaches 0, it will leave the map prematurely while giving its bounty in the process.
