Once a member of the Mantis tribe, now cast out and driven mad by infection.
Belonging to a tribe, or not belonging. I don't really understand what the difference is, or how it works. I have no tribe of my own.
Behaviour and Tactics
- Slash: It will face the direction of the Knight and perform a lunge and slash with a long range.
- Lunge: It will jump a short height, then perform a diagonal slash downwards in the direction of the Knight, followed by a forward lunge.
- Upward Swipe: if the Knight is directly above it, it will sometimes perform a quick upward swipe.
The best tactic is to bait out its long forward lunge, jump over it, and get a hit or two in before dashing away and repeating. Mantis Traitors have a much faster recovery time on their attacks than most enemies, so it is wise not to stay close too long after they attack.

They are very commonly found within Queen's Gardens, usually defeating them is necessary to unlock a door or proceed in the game, like in the Traitor Lord fight. Also found within the Colosseum of Fools, at the 9th and 17th wave of the Trial of the Fool.
- Due to a possible bug in one of the patches, Mantis Traitors no longer drop any Geo.
