Cyclossi are monsters found inside the Warriors' Guild. They are much taller than a regular Cyclops and drop the Dragon defender and the Cyclopean helmet. There is a chance a cyclossus will be summoned when a player kills a regular cyclops, providing the player had shown a rune or dragon defender to Kamfreena before entering the room. To fight a cyclossus, the player must wield either a Rune or Dragon defender.
When a cyclossus first appears, it can only be attacked by the player it is after, and nobody else. (On the first day there was a bug where if many players tried to attack it, one would succeed if the original player stopped attacking long enough.) If the original player breaks off combat with the cyclossus (by not attacking it or being attacked by it for 10 seconds), the cyclossus will walk around the room taunting other players by name, and calling out things like "Your mum has two eyes!"and "Two-eyed freaks! think you can take on Cyclossus?". During this time, any player not in combat can attack the cyclossus, not just the original player.
The cyclossus possesses a special move which shoves the player back several squares and knocks the player down. The cyclossus then follows this move up with a magic attack that looks like a tiny lightning bolt. This always hits, damaging and stunning the player. The player cannot move while stunned but can do things that do not require movement such as eating or drinking a potion. It is recommended to stand near a wall in the warriors guild while fighting Cyclossus, to stop it from pushing you away. This will do two hits; the pushing hit that does not hurt a lot and a lightning bolt that also does minor damage.
The melee attacks of a cyclossus are much more accurate than those of a regular cyclops. Not even a high defence level and high-stat gear is enough to avoid taking damage, so food is recommended. The Protect from Melee prayer blocks the melee damage and is recommended for players who can use that prayer. This prayer, however, does not block the special move or magic attack of the cyclossus. Harrallak does not allow Ancient Curses to be used in the Warriors' Guild, so Deflect Melee cannot be used. Ancient curse users should switch to the regular prayers if they wish to use prayers in the room.
Some drops will be noted and in a higher quantity if "Use multiple token types" is selected when entering the room. For example, the player will always receive 2 noted Big bones when killing a cyclossus.
Even for a mid levelled player with decent stats cyclossus can be difficult to defeat due to their special attack and their unusually high life points. They should still be attempted to be killed as they have the prized dragon defender as a common drop.
