"Liberated, you three prayed as one
Liberated, you three pleaded as one
Liberated, you three were born as one."


Tres Angustias is a boss in Blasphemous, found in Grievance Ascends.

They are three women wearing black dresses, two of them wielding spears and the third one a bludgeon.

Item descriptions and dialogue indicate that this may be a representation of the three sisters that became Altasgracias and that they are the source of the triune groan that resounds through Jondo. It is possible that this boss symbolizes the anguish and pain of the three sisters.

Behaviour and Tactics

  • Floating: They form in a triangular pattern, rotating in a circle. One of the three will shoot their weapon at where the Penitent One is standing after a short aim period. Either one of the spearwomen or the one holding the large, double-ended bludgeon. If a spearwoman shoots, it will project where it’s going as it rotates in place before being fired. If the bludgeoner throws the bludgeon, it will boomerang in a circle and return.
  • Line Up: They line up vertically against one of the left or right walls, shooting their weapons at the Penitent One in order. The bludgeon is thrown only once, as it takes a significant amount of time to encircle the bludgeoner and return.
  • Form Up: They disappear into a large black blob in the center of the screen. Damage can be dealt during this state. The three form into one giant woman. After a short delay, she erupts into a huge beam of light, which will damage the Penitent One. In giant woman form, Tres Angustias can still be damaged the easiest, but it is advisable to dodge before the laser explodes.

Phase 2 is very similar to phase 1, except Floating and Line Up result in more shots being fired. Form Up will also result in two lasers being shot on opposite sides of each other.


Phase one is relatively simple to deal with, just get hits in when possible. Preferably not during the Line Up moveset because Tres Angustias is difficult to dodge and hit in that phase with the bludgeon swirling around. Focus on attacking in the other two stages. During Phase 2, it might be difficult to attack even during the Floating moveset, so try to maximize damage during Form Up if dodging is difficult.
