"Brightest of dawn...

Darkest of night...

Even in defeat...


After defeating Athena post-Anubis; Forsaken Judge; Athena lies to the center of Acropolis, and slowly transitions to her awakened phase. Her attacks become more intense and includes lightning-based attacks. This boss can also be quite laggy if you are playing on multiplayer as Olympian Athena is known to despawn often.


  • Casts storm spheres that deal high damage and creates storm fields upon contact with solid tiles.
  • Summons 3 seraph guards to assist her. They attack by quickly shooting 3 feathers in an arc.
  • Charges 2-4 times quickly. Her charging speed increases as she loses health.
  • Casts 4 runespawns which turn into Charged Owl Runes that shoot olympian lightning bolts for a short time.
  • Teleports to one of the Acropolis platforms and execute either of the two attacks:
    • She throws swift gale spears that split into spinning gale orbs that linger on the air for a while.
    • She casts 3 olympian razor gusts that move quickly in an arc, 4 times.
  • When low on health, she summons an Angel Clone to fight for her. It attacks by trying to ram the player.
  • Despawns whenever the person who is being targeted dies (multiplayer).

  • Athena's theme is Magusaint, which was composed by the artist Turquoise.
    • This theme includes direct motifs of Fallen Angel's theme from Varia Mod, made by the same composer. They also have similar names. (Magusaint - Tinkersaint)
  • Olympian Athena's theme is Goddess of Those Winged, also by Turquoise.
  • The quote "A VARIAN ALWAYS PUTS UP ONE LAST FIGHT!!!" is a reference to the Varia mod by Turquoise, who also composed the themes for Athena, Olympian Athena and the Acropolis. She also resembles the Fallen Angel boss from Varia due to being the same race canonically (Varians). They also summon Angel Clones as well.
  • The "HE" Olympian Athena mentions after being defeated is ???, the Chaos Wizard, one of the major characters in the mod's lore.
  • In recent updates, most of Athena's quotes have been redesigned into the style of Mod of Redemption's most boss dialogues.
  • In the early planned concepts of this mod, Athena along with Greed and Anubis were planned to be associated with Soul of Cthulhu's storyline. But certain changes to these trio have also changed their storylines to be tied to Shen Doragon's storyline.
  • If you enter a world that was created without the Ancients Awakened mod installed, she will say: "Earthwalker..! There's no Ancients Awakened content in this world! Make a new world if you really wanna play the mod...idiot..."
  • Athena is an ancient Greek goddess associated with wisdom, handicraft, and warfare in the Greek mythology. Athena was regarded as the patron and protectress of various cities across Greece, particularly the city of Athens, from which she most likely received her name.
    • One of her major symbols include owls, which is most likely a reason why she requires Owl Statue to be summoned.
