"Witches have been known to offer help to the questing adventurer, yet they are a reclusive people and have to be summoned by the aid of mystic Charms or Talismans."
― Excerpt from A GUIDE TO COVENS - for Witches and Witchcraft enthusiasts.

The Witch Talisman, also known as the Witches' Talisman, was a special item that could be used to summon Witches. Due to the territorial nature of Witches, it was most effective in areas with signs of their previous activity.


In 1386, Sir Daniel Fortesque found the Witch Talisman in the abandoned witches' coven under Cemetery Hill. He used it to summon the Forest Witch and the Pumpkin Witch.



The talisman took the form of a circle intersected with a pentagram.



"The Witch Talisman is a great way to get a hold of busy witches. Those witches and their schedules... always going this way and that at every witching hour!"
― Loading screen hint.

The Witch Talisman can be found within the abandoned witches' coven under Cemetery Hill. It is used in areas with cauldrons to summon witches. It is necessary to collect the Witch Talisman to complete the game, at least without abusing glitches.

The Club is needed to get to the Talisman; first, Dan has to destroy boulders blocking entry into the coven, and then he has to use the Club to light the brazier in the middle of the room with locked gates.

MediEvil: Resurrection

"A witch's talisman! use[sic] near a bubbling cauldron to summon a witchy!"
― An alleged comment by Al-Zalam.


"This sought after pentagonal relic offers up a unique and convenient way to summon a witch. The owner will no longer need to perform an animal sacrifice or utilise a loud hailer to secure an immediate appointment with a crone. They can simply present this talisman at the nearest bubbling cauldron, and hey presto; a hag will appear!"

Behind the scenes


MediEvil (1998 original)

The Witch Talisman was a later addition to the game as it did not exist in early versions like the MediEvil Rolling Demo or the MediEvil ECTS Pre-Alpha.

In real life

According to Wiktionary, a talisman is "a magical object providing protection against ill will, or the supernatural, or conferring the wearer with a boon such as good luck, good health, or power(s)."
