This article is about the stronger variant. For the superior variant, see Screaming twisted banshee.

Twisted Banshees are stronger variants of banshees that require level 15 Slayer to kill. They are found exclusively within the Catacombs of Kourend, in a multicombat area. There is a safe spot on the southern side of the east-most room. Players must wear earmuffs or a slayer helmet while fighting them in order to avoid the effects of their screams; which causes the player to take 7 damage and have their stats greatly reduced in Attack, Strength, Defence, Ranged, Magic, Prayer, and Agility with every attack received.

As they are undead, the Crumble Undead spell and the salve amulet do work on them.

Twisted Banshees can be a great source of herbs and pure essence for Ironman due to their triple herb drop and common drop of 65 (noted) pure essence.

A dwarf multi-cannon cannot be used to kill Twisted Banshees.
