The Unspeakable Deep is a Boss in Salt and Sanctuary
A Kraekan in its most common form. Creatures like these once had a name, but sailors so feared possibly conjuring one by speaking its name that referring to them as simply the Deep became widespread. Whatever their true name is, it has since been lost to the deep, dark sea."
- Prologue of the game
- Boss Flags: Sends players to the Shivering Shore.
- Attack Types: Physical, knockback
- Weak vs: Elements
- Strong vs: Slash and Strike
- Jump Attack, Fist Slams
- Combos get faster
- Killing him grants one of the few Black Pearls that can be found during the game (useful for a SL1 playthrough).
- It actually makes sense to kill him, as it's one of the very few occasions you can get your hands on a Drowned Tome.
- The Shimmering Pearl is unobtainable until late game, unless you get it from the tutorial boss.
There is only a single chance to beat him per character, if you fail to beat him you must create a new character from scratch. To get through the game intro fast, press A to skip the text and then remove enough clothing to get <25% equip load for fast roll. Jump over the first NPC, rolling past the enemies and out the door before they catch up.
Cleric is one of the easiest classes to beat him with, since not only does it start with a damaging weapon (the Mace) but it also starts with blessed pages and Mend. The cleric should remove their pants to get fast roll and they will be able to survive a single hit and heal back to full health, meaning they can get hit at least four times before dying if they can escape to heal up (but only indirectly, e.g. leaping or shockwave, getting hit by his overhead fists is an insta-kill). Utilize the blessed pages for more damage output and get next to him, rolling past him whenever he attacks or leaps and hitting him a couple times. If he gets too close to the edge you can bait him forward.
The Paladin is also a good class to kill him with since it starts with five Lightvessels that do heavy damage when thrown and a powerful Morning Star.
When he dies you will only have a couple seconds to pick up the gold before the ship sinks regardless. However, it doesn't count as a death so you will still have your Salt.
- Pauper's pitchfork does a lot of damage to him with its strong attack.

The fast level glitch can be used on a new game, rendering this boss much easier.
