Chthonic Keys are one of several currencies that can be earned within the Underworld. Along with Diamonds, they are available as bounties to whoever can defeat the guardians of Tartarus, Asphodel, Elysium, or Styx. They can be used to unlock additional Aspects of Zagreus' weapons, as well as some options on the Mirror.

Codex entry[edit | edit source]

Codex.png '...In the remotest corners of the Master's subterranean domain lie certain ancient objects of immense yet understated power. Imbued with the raw intensity of primordial creation, they are key to awakening a host of unique artifacts the Master has collected through the aeons, and carefully preserved, away from prying eyes. That they can almost be mistaken for conventional keys suggests these lifeless objects somehow have a sense of irony. The Master aims to keep them far away from his artifact gallery, appointing some to his most trusted lieutenants, for these keys cannot be buried or destroyed; indeed, left on their own, they seem to find their own way closer to the artifacts with which they are connected.'

Obtaining Chthonic Keys[edit | edit source]

Chthonic Keys can be obtained by defeating the Furies, the Hydra, Theseus and Asterius, and Hades while playing at or above the Heat threshold listed on the Pact. They can only be earned once per boss, per weapon, per Heat level.

Occasionally, a Chthonic Key can also be purchased from Charon's shop in Styx for 1500 Obols.
