  • Insanity pleasures him. (Nightmares is his sanity)
  • Is able to take much more of a beating than other characters. (Takes 60% less damage)
  • Regenerates Restraint and fills Blood Lust by attacking enemies. (Treeguards, Ghosts, Nightmare Monsters, Clockworks, etc. don't have blood and will not feed Derik)
  • Derik's Nightmares work opposite from normal Sanity... Picking flowers, crafting recipes, etc. will lower the Nightmares level while standing near monsters, picking evil flowers, jumping in wormholes, etc. will bring up the Nightmares level.
  • Nightmares are constantly draining from Derik and when it hits 0 he will transform back into Erik.
  • Can't equip anything except for his knife.
  • Can't unequip his knife.
  • Has no idle animations for when he's insane, hungry, cold, hot, etc. (He doesn't show pain)
  • Derik kills for sport and Krampus doesn't like that! (Gains more naughtiness points when killing things)
  • Is hated by tree guards. (Causes tree guards to spawn at a much higher rate than normal when chopping trees)
  • When hunting, Derik has an increased chance to find Wargs and Ewecuses.
