Knuckle Dragger is a larger, more powerful version of standard Bullymongs. It is the first boss of the game. He is fought in the icy canyons of the Southern Shelf. He is first seen in Claptrap's camp where he rips out the robot's eye. He resembles a snow white Adult Bullymong with red fur protruding from his face and shoulders.


Knuckle Dragger will hop off his perch and throw large rocks, similar to standard Bullymong behavior. He attacks with punches and jumping on his victim. When he is at about half health, he will return to his perch and summon Monglet. After a short time he will jump back down.


Knuckle Dragger has a chance to drop the Hornet.


  • Knuckle Dragger is the first boss in the Borderlands series that appears at Level 1.
