Medusa is a Peerless found in her lair inside the Stygian Abyss Dungeon. In order to get access to the Medusa's Lair, four Rare Serpent Eggs must be placed on the altar near the entrance of her lair at 76° N, 35° W. Rare Serpent Eggs can be gathered from the Serpent Nests directly or by using a Snake Charmer Flute.
She can be easily killed solo by a Dexxer. Tamers can also solo her but pets will be petrified and copied frequently. Always kill the copy as quickly as possible.

- Note: Statistics taken from 3 Medusas
- Medusa randomly releases one of the petrified creatures after receiving damage. These guardians can be Ophidian Justicars, Ophidian Warrior, Ophidian Zealot, Ophidian Enforcer, Wailing Banshee, Ogre Lord, Dragon and Undead Gargoyle.
- Drops Medusa Statue and Medusa Blood (base ingredient for Elixir of Rebirth). Players can receive minor Gargoyle Artifacts and major Gargoyle Artifacts (like Slither) in their backpacks when Medusa is killed.
- Blue Medusa Scales can be snatched from Medusa by using a blade on her (up to 5 times yielding 2-3 scales), although this will aggravate her. Skinning her corpse will normally yield 5 greyish-blue scales. On rare occasions 5 "normal" blue scales can be cut from her corpse making the theoretical maximal yield of blue scales 20. The greyish-blue scales make for less effective Gorgon Lens than the blue scales.
- It is advisable to avoid wearing Undead Slayer items as this will double Medusa's melee damage. From October 2010 on Medusa was buffed resulting in her using magical skills much more effectively.
