Great Wyrm Theodorix is a Great Enemy Boss in Elden Ring. Theodorix was once a troll, but was transformed into a lesser dragon for the sin of Dragon Communion and now lives on the frozen river in the Consecrated Snowfield. This is an optional boss, as players don't need to defeat it in order to advance in Elden Ring.

See also Magma Wyrm and Magma Wyrm Makar.

 

The name of the ancient troll warrior Theodorix lives on — as a hero of the War against the Giants.

Elden Ring Great Wyrm Theodorix Location

Head north from the Inner Consecrated Snowfield Site of Grace to the river of ice, then follow it east and you'll run into Theodorix. Consider opening the Cave of the Forlorn with a Stonesword Key to get a closer Site of Grace, but beware of the Giant Land Octopus guarding its entrance. [Map Link]

Great Wyrm Theodorix Combat information

Negations (or Absorptions)

The negation numbers are the % of your damage that gets blocked. For example, if a negation is 60, 40% of that damage by that type will go through and 60% will be negated. Bigger number = less damage. A negation of 100 means no damage goes through, and a negation of -100 mean the enemy takes 2x damage from that source. 0 means damage goes pretty much as is.

Resistances

The resistance numbers are the buildup amount to trigger it. For example, if a resistance is 100 you must deal 100 points of the given buildup to trigger it. Note that these go down over time, and increase each time the effect procs. The values after the "/"s indicate the increased resistances after each successive proc.

 

Additional Fight Strategy

  • Goad the nearby Giant Land Octopuses into fighting Theodorix. They can take and deal a lot of damage before going down.
  • Run past him and climb on the ledge that goes behind his resting spot for a safe zone to snipe him from. This ledge also has an Ancient Dragon Smithing Stone.

 

Great Wyrm Theodorix Lore, Notes & Other Trivia

  • Theodorix was once a troll warrior, a veteran of the War Against the Giants, and became a Magma Wyrm upon indulging the Dragon Communion.
  • Theodorix is automatically hostile towards Large Land Octopuses, Lesser Crabs, and Fire Slugs. He does not appear to be aggressive towards large crabs.

      this mf has a health bar higher than most bosses. My advice is to cheese him with bolt of grandsex and let the octopuses do their stuff.

      • Anonymous

        His standing slam one-shot me from full HP with 54 VIG (1864 HP) and 137/181 Phys/Fire resistance. (No other relevant buffs/talismans). REALLY heavy-hitting boss. Definitely don't try to tank through this fight. Be quick about it.

        • Anonymous

          black flame and destined death stuff like the black knife or the maliketh incantation do a quick work of him. since he has so much HP, the %-based damage really melts through him. youre welcome.

            if youre having trouble, sneak a thunder cloud form when hes asleep, mimic , spam thunder cloud form under him and youre good, i took 1 hit but its easy fi you stay under him

              Yo screw this guy. For real. Literally every other magma wyrm was such a cake walk that I never knew they had a second phase where they stand up until this guy. Spammed flame of the redmanes and black flame ritual because screw him. I'm actually so mad I keep his incantation in a spell slot just as a trophy, regardless if I actually use it or not.

              • Anonymous

                one shot you at 60 Vig, flame+2 talisman, greatshield talisman, crab with his phase 2 sword. best boss ever!!!

                • Anonymous

                  Flame of the Redmanes takes 3 hits to stagger, then walk up and run a fully charged Black Flame Tornado if you're someone who likes burning things but doesn't like dealing with things that don't burn well.

                    I used flame of the redmanes ash of war on the misericorde dagger with heavy (I have 60 strength) and you only need to connect three hits to break his poise, but the only problem is that lava is usually everywhere and you have his wings blocking you from getting to its eyes

                      Pulley crossbow/burred bolts is all you need. Maybe black key bolts too if your feeling like you need extra damage. These magma wyrm bosses are a joke & this is no exception. Just get up on a rock or something & blast him.

                        Advice, go up the frozen waterfall behind this boss. It is still close enough to allow summons, and then bring out Latenna.

                        She'll snipe this bastard and will be basically safe from at least 90% of their attacks.

                        • So from what I understand, This guy was a troll, completed dragon communion, and became this thing? I'd rather become a magma wyrm like this than flail around some pointy metal

                            the ancient dragon lightning strike thing that splits in 8 directions or whatever is amazing against him, beast seal 25 with high str/fth for my build and using mimic tear i just made my tear distract this clown while i full sent the incant melted him. mimic tear had bloodhound claws 24 with frost on it, might have affected/effected the easiness of the boss

                              I got the octopi to fight him, but he still killed all three and had 75% of his health bar. I tried to get the crabs involved but they chased me to a point then stopped. He even walked around them to attack me - maybe they’re buddies?

                              Also this dude one-shot me with 60 vigor.

                                It got me thinking, one of those octopi as a summon would be OP as heck. I didn't remember anything except running around on Torrent and stabbed the wyrm's eyes when the octopi stunned it.

                                  Dudes a major vigor check with that big sword slam he does, 50 vigor was just slightly enough for me to survive one hit from that, other than that, he's just another magma wyrm with very big damage.

                                    Two octopi flanking him took him down while taking less than 10% damage each. They poise-broke him not once, but twice, and the whole ordeal lasted about 45 seconds. Would’ve felt cruel if he hadn’t already one-shotted me a few times.

                                    Like rock, paper, scissors except it’s my character, the octopi, this douchebag.

                                      The damage on this guy is insane. His sword slam attack will one-shot you even with full Heavy armor at 50 vigor with Golden Vow and The Great Shield Drake Flamedrake +2 talismans on NG+.

                                          It's amazing to watch the land octopuses destroying this big boi lizard. I watched impressed while he rolled and spitted all around, trying to overcome three beaked waste balls.

                                          I fell avenged for that fight in the tight cave for the Moonveil, in which I died a lot in the early levels just for a katana that I barely used

                                              Just like the wyrm at gelmir, Latenna can solo him if she's placed high up on one of those square-ish rocks. Make sure she can't fall off because Theo will destroy her if she doesn't have the high ground

                                                The comments about using the land octopi are totally accurate. But more importantly, this may be the only fight in the game where you should clear the fight space first. If not, while you're fighting him you might get attacked by up to 3 octopi plus a land crab, and they're all tough because this is a later game zone. Also, your brainless summon will attack them and not the boss. Stay on torrent, lead them all together, let them fight it out. Then you get to actually watch Theodorix's moves, they're very cool, he gets up on his back legs and looks like godzilla. He'll rampage, he even killed the nearby fire snails, and when he's done with the seafood gauntlet he should be down to about 1/3 health. Now summon your spirit ash, a much easier fight...

                                                  Look up at the top right box, in the standard "strong to" and "weak to" boss stats. Theodorix is apparently weak to "Octopus" lol, need a special weapon for him now like that flicking finger sword.

                                                    Just east of the Octopi is a stone pillar you can jump up on. Summon Latenna here, then go start the fight with Theodorix. Sure the Octopi into the fight because he MAY be able to jump into a position where he can actually hit her - but I was able to take him down without ever landing a blow.

                                                      I was bravely running from the jump scare octopus coming out of the cave and, bing! ran into a Magma Wrym. I thought I was cooked. Stood around laughing for a minute while they went at it, then realized I had to apply some finishing touches to my dragon / octopus stew.

                                                        Tip for anyone struggling: the large land octopus (kite it over from the cave of forlorn entrance to aid in the fight) and Dragon Knight Kristoff +5 this fight was a joke. Those two combo'd Theodorix so hard I got 5 crits in, only one of which was from my attacks. Don't know why, but those two did about 50% of the damage while I just stayed at his tail & then ran up to his head and got my criticals in. FYI, dual wielding Antspur +18 (seppuku with poison affinity) & Rogier Rapier +18 (cold affinity), proc poison & rot, then swapped to my Claymore +18 (Flame Redmane, heavy affinity), on a strength with 25 faith (to use Golden Vow & Flame Grant Strength incants) & 52 strength, plus 20 dexterity to wield the Antspur

But why is this one magma wyrm great? He even has a name. Who was he? What did he accomplish that it was said he was a renown warrior? I demand to know!!!

                                                                                        • Anonymous

With some of the heaviest/best armors (2 unaltered banished, 2 fat fire lady pieces), 60 vigor and lv10 mimic to take aggro; this one can and WILL one-shot you, or casually finish you with 2nd attack if you try to melee it...

                                                                                          • Anonymous

Both healthbars took the same damage simultaneously, so it didn't make any difference to the fight (except the fact that the boss got an insta-heal whilst I was about out of flasks!)

About 100 poorly placed 'great arrows' I took him down : )

This guy was so mad that not only did he attack the octopuses, he went up the small hill to murder the fire slimes minding their own business while I was hitting his ass with my powerstanced whips.

These areas were definitely rushed and copypasted, so the game would be done on time.

You can just spam cast it from completely outside of his attack range and end the fight in maybe 30 seconds. Very useful considering he has solidly beefy resistance to most forms of damage that Incantations usually do.
