Avoid the Janitor. He's a very messed up and scary bot. Don't get on his bad side.

The Janitor is a Hardmode mini boss found in the Abandoned Lab. It is the first mini boss of the Abandoned Lab.

While The Janitor is alive, the music Boreal Defendant will play.

Spawn[edit | edit source]

The Janitor does not spawn on its own and is only summoned by approaching its trolley in its specific room in the Abandoned Lab.

If the player has the Girus Core equipped while encountering The Janitor, the player can completely skip the fight and will be given access.

Note that The Janitor can only be fought once per world, and the fight becomes unavailable upon defeating the encounter.

Behavior[edit | edit source]

During combat, the Janitor jumps around the room, randomly alternating between three attacks.

  • Throws a high-speed mop at the player.
  • Throws a slower, bouncing mop at the player. If the mop bounces back into him, it will briefly stun him.
  • Throws a bouncing, gravity-affected bucket of water that splashes water particles everywhere. If the Janitor lands on a part of the floor that the bucket has recently splashed water onto, he will slip and become stunned for a short time.
  • The Janitor normally has very high defense, making most weapons do little against him, but his defense will be severely crippled if he is stunned with one of his own attacks.

Quotes[edit | edit source]

The following dialogue will only appear if the disabling boss dialogue configuration setting is set to false.

When the player approaches The Janitor's trolley (initiating the battle):

The Janitor says the following in sequence:

  • "Oi! Don't go there, the floor's wet."
  • "..." (stops mopping)
  • "Wait... You're a trespasser!"

When the player approaches The Janitor's trolley (with Girus Core equipped, this will skip the battle):

The Janitor says the following in sequence:

  • "...Why did you have to barge in through the ventilation shaft?"
  • "Lost your access card, huh. Have mine and get out of my sight."
  • "*grumbles* Those darn careless bots losing their cards..." (walks to a door and disappears)

During the battle:

The Janitor says the following in sequence after a period of time:

  • "You may be wondering..."
  • "Where I'm getting all these mops from..."
  • "...Well, it's a secret! Haha!"

The Janitor says the following in sequence after a period of time:

  • "All this jumping about is making me tired."
  • "Oh well! It's exercise!"
  • "Oh right, robots don't need exercise..."

The Janitor says the following in sequence after a period of time:

  • "My joints are a little stiff..."
  • "When was the last time I was oiled?"

When The Janitor hits itself with a mop:

  • "Oof!"
  • "Owch!"
  • "Yowch!"
  • "Ow!"
  • "Arg!"
  • "Damn it!"

When The Janitor slips onto the floor:

  • "Ah!"
  • "D'oh!"
  • "Oops!"
  • "Whoops!"
  • "Not again!"
  • "Damn it!"

When the player defeats The Janitor:

The Janitor says the following in sequence:

  • "Okay, okay!"
  • "Alright fine, you probably can handle yourself here."
  • "Here, have this Lab Access thing and piss off!"
  • "I got moppin' to do." (walks to a door and disappears)

NPC[edit | edit source]

After the player has defeated The Janitor, they can encounter it in a small room to the left of the Irradiated Behemoth's arena.

Quotes[edit | edit source]

  • "Bugger off, you're bringing a whole bunch of dust in here!"
  • "Oh it's you again. You better not interrupt my cleaning."
  • "Make it quick, I've got to resume mopping the floor."

When the player clicks "What's up?":

  • "You've probably seen the personnel who are basically walking corpses, ye? Our security usually deals with them, but it's not enough. They crawl out of overrun rooms like goddamn cockroaches! And I am the one who has to clean all the mess left by them and security."

When the player clicks "Other T-Bots?":

  • "The other bots have learned to fear me. Good for me, I can actually focus on my job. Except now there is a certain someone bugging me when I'm trying to do my job. Hmm, I wonder who it could be... Now bugger off!"

When the player clicks "Protector Volt?" (if Protector Volt has been defeated):

  • "The big bot at Sector Omicron is a cool guy, if you ask me. Probably the only bot I don't feel annoyed by. Now if you excuse me, you brought in some of that slime with ya and I have to clean that up!"

When the player clicks "MACE Project?" (if MACE Project has been defeated):

  • "There's this one copper-haired bot that I can recall, who works as the crane operator in the Mech Storage room. I don't know that much about her, but her design is a little peculiar. Not that she's more feminine, but the hair... Why tho'?"

When the player clicks "What's at the bottom of the lab?":

  • "Don't you dare go into Sector Zero, that place is absolutely filled with the impossible-to-remove black slime! And I don't want ye to bring that stuff here for me to try to pry off the steel plating of the lab! Takes ages."

When the player clicks "Girus?":

  • "Respect Girus and she will learn to respect you. Quite sure I'll get a change of a job after 2 centuries of cleaning the lab after the... Incident. Don't ask me 'bout it, I was activated AFTER it happened."
