|Tale of Diep (ToD) is no longer under active development as a derivative of Diep.io and remains here as an archive, though spin-offs such as The Extended Tale of Diep remain active. For info on the successor to Tale of Diep, now an independent work called "A Tale Where Nothing Matters", visit its Discord server here.|
Gladiator Bosses are one of the classification of boss types that appear in The Tale of Diep. They are exclusive to Arena Gamemodes and have an Arena Score set on the leaderboards for players to pass. Each Gladiator has a set amount of Arena Score when the game launches, with their Arena Score changing daily to show their progression. Every Gladiator Boss, not counting Royale has a chance to spawn in Arena Gamemodes every 10-30 minutes. It is not guaranteed one will even spawn every 10 minutes, hence the range. Multiple Gladiator Bosses can be in the same server at once, but no copies of the same Gladiator Boss can appear in a server. Gladiator Bosses will fight each other actively, as they are meant to be just tanks fighting for Score like any other old player.
Royale, in contrast, has a 2% chance to replace another Gladiator Boss spawn. If he spawns, be ready to group up and take him down, because the champion of Arena will show no mercy if it means gathering his prestige and fortune. Royale mostly will be seen as the boss of the Gladiator Ladder and The Showdown gamemodes.
