Nylocas Athanatos spawn during the second phase of the Verzik Vitur during the Theatre of Blood. These nylocas do not target players but instead attend to Lady Verzik, healing her much like the Nylocas Matomenos. If it is hit with a weapon capable of afflicting poison or venom (or when the serpentine helm is equipped), the Nylocas Athanatos will instead burst and deal damage to Verzik, indicated by a green aura appearing over it.
Despite never attacking the player directly, casting Monster Examine will reveal that it has a stab attack style and a max hit of 11.

The death animation of a Nylocas Athanatos has been reduced.
- The word "Nylocas" is very similar to the Hungarian word "Nyolcas", meaning "eight", referencing the eight legs of this arachnid-like creature.
- The latter part of the name of the Nylocas Athanatos likely derives from the Greek term "ἀθάνατος" ("athánatos"), meaning "undying" or "immortal", referencing its background within the lore.
