Nylocas Vasilias is the third encounter in the Theatre of Blood, and spawns after killing off the hordes of Nylocas Hagios, Ischyros, and Toxobolos.
A trio of players fight the Nylocas Vasilias.
It changes its combat style throughout the fight by changing its carapace, which also indicates its weakness: blue for magic, green for ranged and white for melee. Attacking it with the wrong combat style will cause it to reflect the hit back towards the player as well as healing from the hit. It will change every 10 ticks (6 seconds), and it will always change to one of the other two styles (meaning it will not stay on one style twice in a row).

The Nylocas Vasilias' Hitpoints were increased from 2,000 to 2,500 (in teams of five players) and its damage output was increased, raising its maximum hit from 58 to 70. It also now reflects and heals 100% of the damage done with the incorrect style instead of 50%.
- 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 Vasilias likely derives from the Greek term "βασιλιάς" ("vasiliás"), meaning "king", referencing its background within the lore and its role as a boss encounter.
