A Karamthulhu overlord is a summonable familiar released with the introduction of the Summoning skill. It requires level 58 Summoning.

The Karamthulhu overlord has three types of attacks in addition to its special attack, Doomsphere Device: a close-up attack, a small water blast, and a large, magic-based water attack. Furthermore, it is capable of using several of its attacks at once.

It has a right-click option, Drown, which causes the Karamthulhu to instantly use its magic-based water attack, at the cost of two summoning points. This does not currently work due to changes from Evolution of Combat.

Karamthulhu overlord pouchEdit


A Karamthulhu overlord pouch is made by using a Summoning pouch on a Summoning obelisk with 144 spirit shards, a Blue charm and a fishbowl.

Doomsphere scrollEdit

Doomsphere Device

A player activating the scroll.


The Doomsphere scroll enables the use of the Doomsphere Device special ability for a Karamthulhu overlord. Using a Karamthulhu overlord pouch on a Summoning obelisk creates ten Doomsphere scrolls.

Doomsphere deviceEdit

Doomsphere Device is an effect generated via the Doomsphere scroll. In order to create this effect, you must first have summoned a Karamthulhu Overlord.

The Doomsphere Device effect attacks the target with a powerful water spell that can cause up to 763 life points of damage.



  • The Karamthulhu is a reference to H. P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu, its name being a portmanteau of "Karambwan" and "Cthulhu".
  • The first examine text is a reference to the Superman villain "General Zod," who says "Kneel before Zod."
  • Before the release of Summoning, Karamthulhu was involved in a bug that allowed it to appear and walk around for a bit before disappearing.
  • The examine text, "I will call him Squiddy, and he shall be my Squiddy, and he shall be mine," is a reference to the popular Pixar movie, Finding Nemo, where one of the main characters, Dory, says a similar phrase.
  • Doomsphere Device may be a reference to Doomsday device.
