Ancient Statues are only found in the Ruins. When mined, they will drop a Gem and potentially 1 or 2 Thulecite. The color of gem that drops will be the same type that appears on the statue, either in the staff or at the base. The color changes with each Nightmare Cycle or simply when reloading the game. This makes it possible to choose which gems the statues will drop when mined; gemless statues will remain gemless however. If the statue does not have a gem embedded in it, it will drop Nightmare Fuel in its place.

The appearance of the statues change depending on the current phase of the Ruin's Nightmare Cycle. They emit light during all phases, except "Calm". At the most intense state, the statues will be covered in Nightmare Fuel and gain a hazy glowing quality (though their light radius does not increase).  If mined during the Nightmare phase, there is a chance for a Nightmarebeak or Crawling Nightmare to spawn.

In A New Reign for Don't Starve Together, a new variant of the Ancient Statue can be found in the Atrium Biome, lacking gem sockets and having a rather organic appearance. Instead of transforming at the peak of the Nightmare Cycle, it will change its state when the Ancient Gateway is activated. This version of the statue may not be destroyed.

Placeholder Trivia Edit

  • The Mage statue, if examined closely, reveals it to be a lobster-like creature. This may suggest that the creatures who built them were related to Rock Lobsters.
  • Maxwell's quote hints that these statues were created by a civilization, which dwelled in the ruins.

Mosquito Bugs Edit

  • The damage version of these statues will revert to its original form after saving and reloading the game.
  • The gem in the socket of the Ancient statues will change when the game is reloaded.
    • The phase change of the nightmare cycle might also cause them to change.
